    I Don’t Think You’re Ready… For Korean Jelly

    Korean Jelly moisturizer is all the rage! A lot of people mistaken me as Korean already (I am Chinese) but I have never tried Korean beauty products yet. From all my research, I have been going crazy over KBeauty and finally got my first MEMEBOX. I have been looking all over at Memebox and Peach and Lilly for the latest and greatest. With all the options what do you get, where you start and what does it feel like?  Here are 2 Jelly products I tried and LOVE them both. Hope this helps you dive into KBeauty trends with confidence and see how Korean beauty products can switch up your whole routine (for the better)!

    1. Aromatica Damask Rose Soothing Gel $18

    You can get this online and I just picked it up at Urban Outfitters. I wanted to use my UO gift card and didn’t have to pay for shipping. It is a Rose Water Gel that is from Korea. It is very very very amazing. I love the texture and how fast it absorbs into my skin. It has a very faint scent of roses and dries quickly. It is almost like a veil and keep my skin ‘tight’ without needing to put on cream again. I know that this is going to be my go-to moisturizer for the summer.  The texture reminds me of aloe vera gel you can get but without the stickiness at all.  Aromatica Damask Rose Soothing Gel conditions and hydrates dry, rough, and irritated skin, leaving it rejuvenated, radiant and soothed. Formulated with 6 different superberry extracts including cranberry, blueberry, pomegranate, strawberry, orange and grape, as well as 95% rose water, this blend provides deep nutrition and moisture to the face an/or body. Great for all skin types.

    2. Secret Key Super Plumping Jelly $19 (on sale)

    I got this online from Memebox because it was on sale and the color looks so juicy. I was really excited to try this one. It comes with a little spoon/scoop and the texture is a bit different. It seems a bit more jell-o like and when you scoop it, looks like you took a chunk of it. But quickly it reforms again. It is amazing too and I have been using it as a ‘night cream’. It really doesn’t have a scent at all and I really love it. The texture almost reminds me of when you slice a aloe plant apart and it’s a bit more tight, less liquid.

    This special cream has a unique texture which brings abundant moisture to dry and rough skin. As the cream supplies moisture, it also makes the skin firmer and plumper. Not only this plumping cream moisturizes but it also brightens the skin and fights wrinkles as it is a dual functional cream containing Niacinamide and Adenosine. This cream is free from parabens, mineral oil, benzophenone, phenoxyethanol animal oil and alcohol making it safe for sensitive skin.

    Niacinamide, Adenosine, Beta Glucan, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Salmon Egg Extract, Fruit and Plant Extracts (Blueberry, Orange, Sweet Almond, Broccoli, Pumpkin)

    How to use:

    After your basic skin care routine (day and night), scoop an appropriate amount and gently massage all over the face and neck.
