Minēra is the very first porcelain gua sha made in Canada.
Sculpted by hand in Quebec in the Limoges tradition, it is made from a 100% natural blend of kaolin, quartz and feldspar. It provides a gentle massage for the face and neck, improving circulation, relieving tension and giving the skin a natural radiance.
MINĒRA was created for everyone, regardless of age, gender, skin type, personality, lifestyle, or level of discipline. It is an accessible, minimalist, and sustainable self-care tool that combines the power of minerals and the wisdom of the body to reveal your natural and unique beauty.
The benefits of gua sha facial therapy have been demonstrated by Traditional Chinese Medicine for nearly a millennium. Minēra’s ambassador, Audrey Chen Lafitte, and the team of skin specialists from Beauties Lab use Minēra daily as a technique for beautifying the skin, holistic health and a self-care ritual.
And because we only thrive when our communities are thriving, Minēra donates 2% of all profits to the Chinese Family Service of Greater Montreal.
Minēra stimulates the natural blood circulation of the face. The skin is plumped, smoothed and firmed, pores are refined and the appearance of fine lines is diminished. The complexion is brightened in a matter of minutes.
HOW TO USE IT
- Cleanse the skin and apply your favorite serum or oil to facilitate the massage.
- Repeat each of the 9 exercises below 3 to 5 times per session; massage each side of the face separately for maximum results. Allow about 5 minutes.
- Clean and store your Minēra

6. Under the eye

Slide upward along the brow bone, from the inside to the outside.
Start from the center of the forehead. Divide the forehead into three sections and slide the tool outward. Pressing firmly, make one pass, then make the next pass just below.

For the creative types
Minēra can also be used to massage the rest of the body (or that of a partner).
To maximize the benefits, stimulate relaxation, and reduce inflammation, place the porcelain tool in the refrigerator for a few minutes or run it under cold water. The cold will further stimulate blood circulation, the expulsion of toxins, and the production of collagen.
