From highlighters to cleansers, jelly is having a good run when it comes to beauty products, and maybe for good reason — other than the fact that the gooey consistency is simply fun to play with.
While jelly has already had a moment in makeup, its sudden splash into the world of skin care feels fresh. According to Susana Escobar, the head of product innovation and packaging at Bliss, these new textures fill a critical need within the skin care market.
“Jelly comes in many forms, but most are supergentle, effective, and hydrating — all of which are important for a healthy skin care routine,” Escobar says. “It makes complete sense that you would want to use this efficacious form that also offers a fun, bouncy, and cushiony skin care experience.”
“Jellies feel bouncy and clean,” says Tiffany Materson, the founder of Drunk Elephant. “They can be used on dry skin to melt away impurities or on wet skin for a refreshing cleanse. Also, the texture rinses away without leaving any film or residue behind, and skin feels really fresh but not at all dry.”
