Everyone who knows me knows that I am obsessed with K-Beauty. Hailing from South Korea, this skincare movement has taken not just me, but the entire beauty industry by storm due to their wide range of products that target any and all skin concerns. One of the biggest trends to spawn from K-Beauty is jelly beauty and it happens to be my personal favourite.
So what is it? Jelly beauty includes skincare and even some makeup products that have the texture of, you guessed it, jelly. The reason that so many people love it is that as a cleanser, it’s gentle and doesn’t strip the skin and as a mask or moisturiser, it’s able to provide skin with loads of hydration. Apart from the obvious benefits, it also just feels great – a real nostalgic treat for the senses. And since we dedicate time twice a day to our skincare regimen, it helps that this texture makes things just that bit more exciting.
Needless to say, I am officially a convert and I am instantly drawn to the word ‘jelly’ when I’m browsing the toiletry aisle. Not convinced? Here are six slimy products that will have you clambering to get on the fun bus too. No need to push – there’s room for everyone.
1. GLAMGLOW GALACTICLEANSE Hydrating Jelly Balm Cleanser
While they are best known for their masks, this GLAMGLOW cleanser has a jelly-to-milk formula that is able to melt away makeup and make your skin clean and radiant.
2. Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser
This product has attained cult status and comes highly recommended by beauty eds across the globe. It not only removes dirt and makeup but also leaves skin feeling plump and hydrated.
3. Johnson’s Fresh Hydration Micellar Cleansing Jelly
This newbie from Johnson’s not only has that fun jelly texture we love so much but is also infused with rose water, which is known for its soothing properties and fresh, floral scent.
4. Clinique Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly Anti-Pollution
When this launched a few months ago, the beauty world let out a collective excited scream. Turns out it wasn’t for nothing because it is like a tall glass of water for your face.
5. J.One Black Jelly Pack
This gem actually hails from South Korea and is a staple among many who adhere to the K-Beauty lifestyle. It works like a sleeping mask and improves skin overnight. A miracle in a bottle.
6. Lush Just to Clarify Jelly Face Mask
Not only is this mask a real treat to apply, but it is also packed with enzyme-rich papaya which helps to exfoliate and brighten the skin – all in just 10 minutes. It’s a winner.
