Jelly isn’t just a fun dessert to bust out whenever it gets too hot. You can, in fact, put it on your face (and hair) too.
While we are more familiar with powders and creams, we’ve been noticing jelly-textured beauty products hitting the market recently.
The reasons? They aren’t just fun to use (thus, making you more conscientious with your beauty routine – how smart!), the texture also makes it more gentle on your skin.
These are probably why jelly-textured products are gaining popularity and we’re quite sure they’re a trend to stay.
Haven’t got your hands in jelly and are curious? You should be. Here are the 16 best jelly beauty products to get you started.
1. Drunk Elephant Beste No.9 Jelly Cleanser
It doesn’t get any better than the Drunk Elephant Beste No.9 Jelly Cleanser when it comes to jelly-textured cleansers.
Containing a unique blend of mild surfactants and makeup dissolving emollients, this bad boy gained a massive following for its ability to remove all traces of makeup, excess oil, pollution and grime effectively and effortlessly. We also love that it is free of fragrance, SLS and essential oils, making it perfect for those with even the most sensitive of skin types.
One of the best jelly beauty products out there? No doubt about it.
The Drunk Elephant Beste No.9 Jelly Cleanser is available at selected Sephora outlets and retails at SGD48.
2. Boscia Charcoal Jelly Ball Cleanser
As if the jelly texture wasn’t fun enough, it comes in the form of a ball, too? Enjoy a double dose of good-natured fun when cleansing with the Boscia Charcoal Jelly Ball Cleanser.
The springy, squishy formulation deeply cleanses pores utilising purifying activated black bamboo charcoal, leaving skin feeling revitalised and refreshed. The addition of inica seed gum and hinoki oil works to calm, soothe and hydrate skin too, which makes for a indulgent cleansing experience each time.

Great for those with even the most sensitive, finicky of skin, the Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser is a great option for anyone looking for an affordable yet effective jelly beauty product.
