Best Products to Use for Jelly Skin
Want to perfect the jelly skin look that's taking over TikTok and Instagram? First, you'll need to get your hands on the right products. Luckily, we know just the ones to guarantee you the bouncy, juicy jelly look.
What is Jelly Skin?
If you're wondering exactly what jelly skin is then allow us to explain. In a nutshell, it's skin that is:
- translucent and bouncy
- plump and soft to the touch
- hydrated and smooth
- positively squishy!
And no, before you ask you don't have to be young to create the jelly skin look. The real secret behind this trend is hydration. So get ready to pump your skin full of hydration for the pillowy, bouncy skin of your dreams.
Best Products to Use for Jelly Skin: Double Cleanse
Because we're going to be pumping the skin full of hydration, it's really important that you start with silky, smooth clean skin. If you aren't wearing any makeup or SPF, then something like Cinnamon Toast Sugar Scrub Foam can be perfect on its own to swiftly remove any buildup of dirt and grime.
If you are wearing makeup and SPF, the best way to properly remove them is to try a double cleanse. Try using an oil-based cleanser as your first step to break down the oils in your sunscreen and foundation. Then, follow up with a foaming style cleanser like Cinnamon Toast Sugar Scrub Foam to finish!
Best Products to Use for Jelly Skin: Essence Toner
Once you've got a clean base, it's time to start adding that hydration back into the skin step by step. An essence toner is a quick and easy way to hit two hydrating steps in a single product. Dewy Glaze Toner is perfect for this because it combines the functions of both products in one.
That's because it uses birch sap as the first ingredient, rather than plain old water.
There are multiple different ways you can use a product like this in your routine:
- Applying it to your hands and tapping it into your skin;
- Via the 7 Skins Method (one layer on a cotton pad and the remaining layers by patting it into your skin in your hands)
- Applying it to a cotton pad and swiping it over your skin.
No matter which way you choose, stop when you skin has a nice soft feel to it.
Best Products to Use for Jelly Skin: Serum
The next step (if you use one!) is to go in with a serum. There are serums to treat literally every skin concern on the planet, from brightening, acne, wrinkles, dullness and more. So choose one that is tailored for your skin concern and apply it in between your toner and moisturiser.
Remember: as a general rule, if you're using a Vitamin C Serum in your routine you should apply that in the morning. If you're using a retinol serum, that should go at night (when your skin is not going to be exposed to the sun).

Best Products to Use for Jello Skin: Moisturiser
Most importantly for the jelly skin look is to choose an ultra-hydrating moisturiser. You don't want anything that's going to weigh your skin down or clog your pores. Instead, opt for something that sinks into your skin and nourishes it from the inside out.
Bubble Tea Steam Cream is perfect for this because it hydrates multiple different layers of your skin at the same time.
Best Products to Use for Jello Skin: Lip Mask
Don't ignore those lips - dry, cracked lips are the opposite of the jello skin look so make sure you don't forget to pump up the moisture and volume.
Lip masks are perfect for this because they're longer lasting and more versatile than lip balms or glosses.
You can use them morning or night, to prep your lips for makeup application and whenever dryness, flakes or cracks appear in your lips.
Best Products to Use for Jello Skin: Sleeping Mask
At your last step of nightly skincare, go in with a sleeping mask. This will really amp-up your hydration overnight without burdening your skin. In addition, it will make the most of your skin's natural repair cycle by going to work while you go to sleep.
The key with sleeping masks is to make sure that you are asleep with the mask on during "Golden Time" (between 10pm to 2am). That will help you get the best results for your skin.
Try this routine consistently for a month and we guarantee you'll see the change in your skin. Softer, firmer, bouncier, more elastic and - dare we say it? Jelly like!!
