Sandra Lanshin Chiu felt the mainstream beauty industry didn’t speak to her – or anyone – in a meaningful way. She believed it was missing the point of beauty, as part of overall well-being. Motivated by her desire for change, the certified practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Dermatology carved her own path and founded Lanshin. The brand’s ethos is beauty at ease.
Lanshin pioneers a sustainable approach to beauty, not an endless cycle of products. Its aim is to help you feel reconnected to the environment, your mind, and body through traditional practices, gentle skincare and gua sha tools designed and approved by Lanshin’s highly regarded founder.
Those who’ve never encountered Gua Sha before may be struck at first by the enchanting colours and smooth, aesthetically pleasing shapes of Lanshin Gua Sha tools. These beautiful, ergonomic beauty tools feel heavy and cool in the hand – instantly calm...
Lanshin Gua Sha Tools
Those who’ve never encountered Gua Sha before may be struck at first by the enchanting colours and smooth, aesthetically pleasing shapes of Lanshin Gua Sha tools. These beautiful, ergonomic beauty tools feel heavy and cool in the hand – instantly calming – but they work on so many, deeper levels. Massaging the face with the brand’s techniques (for which they offer plenty of tutorials and full instructions) helps invigorate circulation and improve, lift, and contour your features for a smoother and brighter appearance.
We also hold a lot of tension in our faces, since we have an incredible number of muscles here. Rhythmic and gentle massage releases tight muscles and fascia, melting away tension, not only sculpting the skin but relaxing the nervous system too. With practised technique, Lanshin Gua Sha tools can even alleviate issues like blocked sinuses and headaches, and improve the appearance of acne-prone skin.
Beauty at Ease
Lanshin’s ethos is all about well-being, incorporating your mind, body and soul, so you can select your tools in a material with properties that speak to you. Rose quartz and Xiuyan jade help restore a youthful glow, while nephrite or "He Tian" jade is denser and heavier, with strong healing properties. Although less traditional, surgical-grade steel brings its own innovative properties; it’s hypoallergenic, doesn’t require any oil and is ideal for sensitive skin prone to redness, rosacea or inactive eczema.
The other Lanshin tools include scalp massage combs, stimulating blood flow to the scalp for healthy hair and an intensely relaxed feeling, and the delicate sculpting spoon. It’s designed for precision work like cheek sculpting, draining puffiness, under-eye and jaw release, and sinus congestion. While the brand doesn’t replace visits to a Traditional Chinese Medicine expert, it helps you unlock some of the healing and relaxation from the comfort of your own home.
