Why Your Skin Needs A Jelly Cleanser

Why Your Skin Needs A Jelly Cleanser

There are so many cleansing options available – from foaming to hot cloth – but how about a cleanser that works for all skin types, and guarantees a clearer, more radiant complexion? Introducing, jelly cleansers: the latest thing in beauty has a lot to offer.

Tell us more...

The newest Korean beauty export, jelly cleansers are a clever hybrid between a cleansing oil and a cleansing balm. Thanks to their groundbreaking melting formula (turning to soothing milk when mixed with water), they make light work of removing stubborn make-up, leaving your skin clearer and more refined over time.

What makes them different?

The texture is what makes jelly cleansers unique, and while they might feel thicker than your usual cleanser, it’s this formula that guarantees a deep cleanse. Take the time to massage the product into the skin and you’ll reap the benefits as the multi-tasking jelly works hard to simultaneously hydrate and clean the skin.

How to use them?

Jelly cleansers can be used on damp skin and rinsed off for a simple morning cleanse, but for make-up removal, massage into dry skin (including the eye area) before rinsing off with water. Use alone or as part of a double cleanse when either preceded by make-up removal or followed with a toner.

Who are they for?

If you find oil cleansers too rich and foaming varieties too drying, the jelly formula – which dissolves dirt, impurities and excess oil without stripping the skin might be the ideal solution. A jelly cleanser is also a more affordable way to switch up your skincare game – bloggers and industry names rave about their skin-perfecting qualities, yet they’re pitched at a considerably lower price point than a serum or mask.

Which are the best ones?

Oilixia’s Gummy Cleanser gets our vote – it’s one of the thicker formulas on offer but its game-changing blend of vitamin C and macadamia and eucalyptus oils leaves your complexion brighter and smoother. Those with sensitive skin should opt for Glossier’s cult Milky Jelly Cleanser which is packed with soothing rosewater and poloxamer (normally found in contact lens solution), while those with dry skin should make a beeline for Shiseido’s Waso Fresh Jelly Lotion.
