Announcement: there’s room for everyone at our Skincare Table. 

Lately, we’ve gotten some (understandable) inquiries about the difference between Wildling’s brand new Empress Platinum and our original Empress Stone. What’s the difference, what’s the deal, do you need both, and which one is better for what?! Allow us to explain. 

We understand it may seem a little confusing at first… so read on for the ultimate Empress vs. Empress explanation!  

(Spoiler Alert: they’re both amazing for lifting, toning, and sculpting facial features)

Recently, we launched the incredible & indestructible Empress Platinum tool. We’ve been so excited to bring you this stainless steel gua sha tool, which was crafted & designed based on our community feedback. It features a new groove edge for additional grip/lifting, the boon of being a ‘lifetime’ tool, and comes with a unique list of material-specific benefits. 



Now don’t get us wrong… we love our OG Empress Stone! Obsessed, always & forever. It’s unique, wildly effective, soothing on the skin, and quite frankly - the impetus for the entire Wildling brand. We added the Empress Platinum into the mix, casting it in cooling, indestructible stainless steel, based on community input. Many of you asked for an unbreakable stone, something a bit more focussed on blemish-prone skin types, and a travel-friendly (read: nearly impossible to break) tool. We heard you.

The good news? These beauty tools share a lot of the same benefits, and each boast unique ones as well. 

Read on for the definitive list of their common traits, differences, and effects. Your skin will thank you!
