6 jelly skin care products that we’re obsessing over
It doesn’t get more fun than this

The skin care category is one of the most interesting spaces to watch, and not just because of new ingredients that spring up constantly, such as hemp seed oil and bakuchiol, or cutting-edge treatments such as cryo-fusion. Our newest obsession is based on texture; we’re totally fixated on jelly-based products that are not only fun to play with, but also boast nourishing, refreshing or hydrating properties. These are the jelly skin care products we just can’t get enough of.
Dior Hydra Life Glow Better Fresh Jelly Mask
Boosted with lots of botanical AHAs such as blueberry, orange and lemon, this jelly mask from Dior is your shortcut to an enviably glowing complexion. Pop it on up to three times a week, wait for three minutes, and rinse away to reveal juicy-looking skin immediately.
Clinique Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly Anti-Pollution
This is one of the most iconic jelly products on the market - not just because it was one of the first mainstream products of its kind, but because of its efficacy in hydrating skin. In fact, the brand promises that your skin can stay hydrated for up to 24 hours after applying it. Our Review Crew® road-tested this product and awarded it 4.5 stars.
Too Faced Pineapple Glow Moisturising And Brightening Face Mask
A mask that smells incredible *and* can up your Instagram game? Yes, please. This new mask from Too Faced is loaded with tiny flecks of shimmer and is enriched with lactic acid and glycolic acid in the form of prickly pear, lemon and apple extracts to reveal a smoother complexion after use.
Estée Lauder Nutritious Super-Pomegranate Radiant Energy Eye Jelly
Don’t underestimate the fun texture of this eye product; the formula can address the signs of ageing (such as puffiness) and also contains Mediterranean pomegranate that’s gone through an intense eight-step extraction process to ensure its potency is locked in.
Shiseido WASO Fresh Jelly Lotion
Formulated with Japanese white jelly mushroom, this jelly-like lotion transforms into a liquid once it’s warmed up by the temperature of your skin, and can immediately hydrate and plump up your complexion. It also sinks in almost immediately, so there’s no dreaded feeling of stickiness after applying.
Drunk Elephant Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser
This is one of Drunk Elephant’s most well-loved products, and it’s easy to see why: The jelly formula is fun to squeeze out, and it’s also a really effective product for removing dirt and grime without being too aggressive. In fact, the pH of the product is formulated at 5.5, meaning it won’t affect the microbiome of your complexion and it’s gentle enough to use on sensitive skin.
