Since the K-Beauty Skincare Secret, jelly skincare has been rapidly expanding its market presence in the United States. However, it takes a heatwave and a plethora of warm-weather beauty problems (see: make induced by facial covers and greasy T-zones exacerbated by too much sun) to instill a newfound appreciation for dewy, featherweight formulations that the skin can drink up.
To kickstart this K-Beauty Skincare Secret, wash your face with 107’s Chaga Jelly cleanser, a pH-balanced face wash that is all business when it comes to removing makeup, grime, and oil while still leaving the skin smooth and supple. All it takes is a few minutes with Dior’s Glow Better Fresh Jelly Mask, a mild, water-rich exfoliant that instantly reenergizes skin, or Ultra H20’s Water-Jelly Modeling Mask, which plumps and brightens while also acting as a dark spot treatment.
To keep your skin nourished throughout the day, reach for Base Butter’s cult-favorite Radiate Face Jelly or ready your face for makeup with the J. One Jelly Pack, an incredible pigment-grabbing primer. Are you suffering from under-eye circles? Refreshingly reduce puffiness with Freck’s So Jelly Cactus Eye Jelly.
