1. Hydraluron Moisture Jelly (£24.99)
An extension of the best selling Hydraluron range, this Moisture jelly uses a combination of five scientifically proven ingredients to help provide instant and sustained moisture to skin. Containing a high concentration of hyaluronic acid (the essential element we need to cushion our skin and provide a full 'plumping' effect that's associated with a youthful appearance,) this works well to instantly cool the skin and leave it supple. I love the pump-action top, ensuring there's minimal wastage and that you get value for money, as well as the 'water like' texture when it melts into skin. It can be used in conjunction with the Hydraluron serum for best results, or just alone for a hit of moisture under makeup.
2. Resultime Regenerating Collagen Gel (£47.00)
This rose tinted gel claims to stimulate the production of collagen in skin cells, regenerating the upper most layer of skin to provide plumped, hydrated skin and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines. Some claim! I've been using this as a night cream as I love the lightness of the texture and the way it soaks into skin; every morning I wake up with smooth and plumped skin, even when I'm still feeling exhausted. There's no faffing, no sticking to the pillow and no need to wait twenty minutes before getting into bed... I'm definitely on board with the jelly! It can also be used to treat sunburn, works well as a primer and can be applied to dry patches all over your body for a moisture hit. Although it's costly, you need a tiny amount; it'll last you a really long time and is well worth the cost of ten pots of Nivea.
3. Dr Organic Snail Gel (£19.99)
You read that right. This is actually made using snail slime, which has been identified as a unique substance that aids regeneration. It's used by the snail to quickly regenerate its shell if it ever gets damaged and was noticed to have a similar effect upon the hands of snail farmers. (Nope, I didn't know there were snail farmers either.) The Dr. Organic Snail Gel is a moisturising, soothing, anti-aging gel that melts into skin to leave it feeling pretty amazing. It's not slippy or slimy and has the most incredible citrus scent; although I was dubious this does feel really rather lovely. Although I've not been using this long enough to comment on long-term effects, it's developed cult like status and has been proven to provide some serious results in clinical trials.
I've no doubt that we'll start to see more and more gel and jelly textures appearing on beauty shelves over the coming months. It makes sense to provide essential ingredients in a light and easily absorbed formula. I'm loving these three products and will no doubt continue to use them over the coming months. Will you be picking up some jelly too?
