So, what's the deal?
You know how traditional cream, gel, oil and exfoliating cleansers, despite promising to nurture skin, can actually create quite a bit of havoc? Jelly cleansers were formulated to combat that. Where foaming cleansers can be all-too drying and oil cleansers can seem to leave a thin, immovable shiny film behind, jelly cleansers are typically formulated to be oil-free and non-foaming -- meaning they'll remove all the dirt, makeup and other impurities from the surface of your skin without making matters worse in any way. Yup, they're the be-all-end-all of gentle cleansers.
Gentle is good. What's even better is that we're about to let you in on a little skin-care secret just in time for the cool weather. As you know, the cooler the weather, the drier your skin can get. To combat those effects, it's important to switch up your skin-care routine the same way you would your wardrobe. So, if you're in the market for a new cleanser, take our word and make it gentle with jelly -- as always, we have the recommendations to get you on your way.
