The K-beauty trend Jelly Skincare - the hybrid between gel and cream

Many people are used to adapting their skin care routine to the season, where the routine may become shorter during the summer. But adapting the routine also means that you have a certain insight into what different textures do for the skin; a fatter cream can act as a barrier protection and encapsulate moisture and a thin toner can advantageously be applied in several layers.

In this post, we focus on the k-beauty trend Jelly Skincare. The word jelly corresponds to what we would call jelly and is very much part of its meaning. The use of gel-like textures has the ability to be absorbed more easily and faster by the skin than with oily creams and is therefore suitable during the summer when the humidity has risen. A higher humidity means in short that the air is more water-filled, unlike during the winter when it is lower and the air is experienced drier, which therefore requires other measures when it comes to skin care.

The Jelly Skincare concept is not only about light textures but also about the sensory experience of it; the feeling of ironing on a light cooling and pleasant texture. At the same time, an essential part of Jelly Skincare is that it is a hybrid product that is neither a pure gel nor a cream but an optimal combination of both formulations' properties to cool and moisturize so that it can also be used by all skin types and skin conditions.

In addition, the hybrid formula means that a product can carry more active components such as exfoliating acids or vitamin C. Therefore, products in this category are perceived as a bit slimy and sloppy, which has also created the fascination and trend around it - its unique appearance is for many also aesthetically pleasing both in its packaging and on the skin.

With us, you will of course find a number of hybrid products that qualify to be classified as Jelly Skincare. Between 9-31 May, you will also find them at a 20% discount!

COSRX is a brand that does not shy away from allowing fascinating textures to take place. With them we find the international bestseller Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence which is a very moisturizing essence that maintains and improves the elasticity of the skin, where snail secretions also have the ability to be repairing and healing for damaged skin. In the same series we also find the cream Advanced Snail 92 All In One Cream which carries the same properties in cream form and has a plumping effect.

At COSRX you can also find Hydrium Green Tea Aqua Soothing Gel Cream which suits a warm and flushed skin that needs to be quickly soothed and cooled, and does well on a more oily skin type.

Deeply moisturizing and moisture retaining creams can be found at Make p: rem and I'm From. Safe Me Relief Watery Cream from Make p:rem strengthens the skin barrier and provides long-lasting hydration for oily as well as dry skin while Vitamin Tree Water Gel from I'm From has smoothing and anti-inflammatory properties while counteracting enlarged pores.

For you who want to boost the effect of, for example, your vitamin C serum is Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask from Klairs and Vitamin 75 Maximizing Cream from By Wishtrend excellent. Both products have a high content of vitamin E, which has the ability to help the skin absorb the added vitamin C more efficiently. Where Vitamin 75 Maximizing Cream is a light and pleasant day cream that strengthens the skin's barrier and elasticity and suits even the most sensitive, Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask is a multifunctional product. It can be used as both a moisturizing mask, night mask and moisturizer and has a very unique formula that can be compared to a pudding that when applied "fills" the pores and has a deep effect in terms of hydration, wound healing for pimples and for a skin with moisture loss and which needs to strengthen its elasticity.

From By Wishtrend we also find the cream Acid-Duo Hibiscus 63 Cream which contains LHA and PHA acid which have exfoliating properties without irritating the skin. It dissolves clogged pores and regulates the skin's sebum production, which makes it great as a day or night cream for oily and acne-prone skin.

All In One Essence from Hyggee is partly a Jelly Skincare product but also a hybrid product in itself because it works as both essence and serum. Filled with good bacteria / probiotics (Read and learn more about it here) in combination with three hyaluronic acids, it is very moisturizing, slightly exfoliating and has an anti-aging effect.

Products with a more cooling gel formula is the product from Klairs Fundamental Eye Awakening Eye Gel, and it really lives up to its name. Like a real coffee cup for a morning swollen eye area, it leaves a cool and invigorating feeling while it quickly sinks in without feeling dry. It works great under makeup and also has the ability to counteract dark circles.

Cica Regen 95 Soothing Gel from Dr. Ceuracle is also an example of an effective gel product that cools, cools and moisturizes. Through a rich content of antioxidants, it gives radiance and glow while soothing and relieving irritated skin. Works as both a day cream and a moisturizing mask (which does not need to be rinsed off), depending on the amount of product you take.

Finally, from Dr. Ceuracle we find the Vegan Kombucha Tea Gel Cream which is a probiotic and nutritious day cream thanks to the fermented tea kombucha. It keeps the skin's pH value in balance and strengthens its barrier and is excellent as a day cream, with advantage during the summer.
