A Perfect Pair: Black Pearl Resurfacing Serum + Rose Quartz Gua Sha to Smooth and Sculpt

A Perfect Pair: Black Pearl Resurfacing Serum + Rose Quartz Gua Sha to Smooth and Sculpt

Gentle cleansing and intentional moisturizing are the key ingredients in any excellent skincare routine, but adding some exfoliation to the mix will quickly level up your regimen. Exfoliating ingredients help dissolve and remove dead skin cells that can build up and cause skin to appear dull and lackluster. With consistent usage, exfoliating products help skin look notably radiant, smooth, and youthful.

Today, we’re showcasing KNESKO’s exfoliating powerhouse—Black Pearl Resurfacing Serum—alongside the Rose Quartz Gua Sha. When used together, this transformative duo works overtime to smooth, lift, and sculpt.

KNESKO’s Black Pearl Resurfacing Serum is one of the team’s favorites for good reason! It’s formulated with a synergistic blend of glycolic, lactic, and mandelic acids that work together to visibly smooth, refine, and retexturize the skin’s surface.

“We formulate with PHAs and a fruit acid blend that works in harmony to gently resurface the skin without irritation,” explains Sydney Eger, lead esthetician and director of education for KNESKO Skin. “Made with marine collagen, it is also hydrating which when combined with the purifying and smoothing power of AHAs and PHAs, creates a pore-blurring effect on the skin.”

The formula also features Black Pearl—also known as a "queen of the sea"—which has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine to nourish and protect skin.

Gua sha is an ancient Chinese therapy that helps boost circulation, promote lymphatic drainage, and relieve tension. It’s also believed to help release stagnant energy and open the pathway for healing. Along with these benefits, consistently practicing gua sha five to 10 minutes per day as part of a self-care routine can notably improve your appearance.

“The sculpting and lifting powers of gua sha work by releasing tension in the shoulders, neck, and face to improve facial symmetry, release blockages that can inhibit lymphatic flow, and balance the heart chakra,” Eger says. “Our soothing stone was designed by KNESKO founder Lejla to fit perfectly in the hand.”

Gua sha always involves a gentle sweeping motion, and should be used jointly with a serum. 

How to Pair Them Together

Pairing these two products together is very simple. Carve out this intentional time for yourself to enjoy a moment of self-care, and enjoy the results that follow.

1. Cleanse skin and dry completely.

2. Apply a few drops of Black Pearl Resurfacing serum to your face, neck, and decollete. (Don’t skip your neck; Eger says you’ll see a difference on neck lines even after one application!)

3. Apply serum from a KNESKO Mask sachet.

4. Complete a five to 10 minute gua sha ritual.

5. Enjoy smoothed, radiant, sculpted skin that glows from within!

    Pro Tip: If retinoids are part of your routine, Eger says to “apply the Black Pearl Resurfacing Serum on your ‘off’ days to smooth texture and create an unparalleled glow.”
