Thanks to K-Beauty, jelly textured skincare products have taken over skincare markets around the world – and with good reason. Apart from being fun to apply, these lightweight formulas leave skin looking super dewy without that sticky, “heavy” feeling of their cream counterparts, making it a godsend in our humid climate. From cleansers to make up and to skincare, here are the 12 jelly products we are digging at the moment.
This Instagram-famous cleanser has a luxurious milky-jelly hybrid formula that takes the pain out of double cleansing – perfect for those nights where you had one glass of wine too many. pH-balanced, this cleanser helps to dissolve make-up and grime while keeping your skin soothed and moisturised thanks to ingredients like rosewater, Pro-vitamin B5 and Aquaxyl, which improves the skin’s barrier function over time.
Formulated for oily skin types, this cleanser removes make-up, excess sebum, sweat and pollution with a unique blend of mild surfactants and make-up dissolving emollients. It gently yet thoroughly cleanses the skin without stripping it of natural oils, leaving skin soft and supple after every wash. The formula is also non-irritating and sensitising, as it contains absolutely no SLS (sodium laurel sulphate), fragrance or essential oils.
This unique and totally adorable cleanser makes the simple act of washing your face fun. Containing activated black bamboo charcoal, this cleanser deeply cleanses out all traces of grime and sebum from your pores, while leaving skin refreshed. Containing Tamarindus indica seed gum and hinoki oil, skin is hydrated and soothed for a glowing complexion. We love how it comes with a portable case too, making this non-liquid formula the ultimate must-have in your travel kit.
Created by Korean actress Ha Jiwon, you can now achieve her glass skin with this game changing multi-tasker. Packed with hyaluronic acid, this moisturiser/primer condenses your morning routine into 1 simple step by locking in moisture and creating a smooth canvas for your make-up. Formulated to “grip” make-up, this jelly pack also helps to tighten your skin and smoothen out your pores for a flawless finish.
Designed to actually become more effective when it comes into contact with water (read: sweat), this gel-based sunscreen is equal parts lightweight and powerful. The hydrating formula promises not to clog your pores while leaving your skin with a dewy finish, while protecting your skin against harmful UV rays. A comfortable, non-streaky sunscreen? Yes please.
Make those peepers pop with this super sparkly, jelly textured eye shadow. Formulated to be fade-resistant, packed with moisture and light reflecting, a little goes a long way for such a small pot! Simply do a light application for the day, and layer on as the sun goes down to really turn up the volume for your girls’ night out drinks.
Quickly entering cult product status, this highly coveted highlighter applies like jelly over your skin, but magically sets like powder, leaving you with a wet-satin finish. It’s super pigmented, but you can choose just how bright you want to shine by layering the product. Tip: mix a little with your moisturiser for a radiant glow that’ll trick everyone into thinking you actually got your eight hours of sleep.
If you’re seeking a quick pick-me-up for your skin, then look no further than this amazing mask that helps to revitalise tired skin and brighten dull complexions. It is formulated with superfoods ginger and turmeric to calm stressed-out skin, and packed with vitamin C to help brighten your skin. Tip: store it in the fridge for an extra cool dose of hydration.
Why just drink your antioxidants when you can apply them directly to your skin too? This jelly moisturiser might be lightweight, but it packs a punch when it comes to hydration and nourishment. Quickly absorbed by your skin without leaving a “sticky” feeling. We love this moisturiser for its pocket-friendly price, without compromising on benefits.
On those days you only need light coverage, make your products work for you by opting for this tinted jelly BB gel-cream that also provides SPF20 protection. Its unique jelly texture makes application a breeze, and ensures even coverage while keeping your skin hydrated and soothed.
Forget about regular bath bombs, because now there are jelly bath bombs! They make your bath just as Instagram-worthy as normal bath bombs, but this jelly variant also release a jelly made of mineral-rich seaweed into your bath water to soften and soothe your skin. The Big Sleep scent is crammed with soothing chamomile and lavender, making it perfect after a long, stressful day at the office.
Made from all-natural ingredients, this jelly-textured mask owes its beautiful, rich blue hue to blue tansy, a powerful anti-inflammatory that instantly reduces redness and irritation. The mask also contains a rich blend of AHAs and BHAs from white willow bark and fruit enzymes to purge out those pores and exfoliate dead skin cells, leaving your skin soft and renewed. Tip: keep it in your fridge to extend its longevity.
