I’m not sure why I haven’t written about this amazing night jelly until now ( or why I haven’t done any posts about the incredible world of night jellies in general), but this one is my favorite so better late than never, I suppose!
Night jellies are a type of skincare treatment that are very popular in Asia and many credit Naruko for being one of the first to offer Night Jelly type treatments, though I’m not sure if they were. There are also other treatments called “sleeping masks” or “sleeping packs” which, in my opinion, are basically the same as night jellies only more like thick creams instead of the light jelly consistency.
At any rate, they all have similar function – a treatment you put on at night last, after all your other product. It goes on thick though you don’t need a lot and it does not feel heavy, cakey or greasy. It just feels like a nice cold gel, like aloe vera in a way.
You leave it on like that when you go to bed and it does the work while you sleep!
Naruko offers a lot of night jellies with various function from whitening to anti aging and hydration and this one, my favorite, helps control oiliness and treat breakouts and irritation.
It harnesses the amazing powers of tea tree oil, but it does so in a very hydrating way.
It likely has something to do with the fact that this formula includes lots of beneficial botanical ingredients which is another reason to love this night jelly.
One thing I don’t like about a lot of tea tree oil products is that they tend to try the hell out of your face.
This does NOT do that.
It’s really soothing, it smells exactly like tea tree oil and relaxes me before bed.
What’s even more miraculous is the fact that my boyfriend, Mr. “I hate the nasty feeling of lotion and will never wear a face cream, barely wash my face anyhow,” actually likes this night jelly and lets me put it on him before bed.
So, don’t limit this product to women, the scent is really unisex and will work equally well for male skin!
I really enjoy using this for those days when I have stress or hormonal (you know) breakouts and my face just freaks out on me for no reason.
This night jelly calms my face down, literally, overnight.
I have combination skin so a lot of acne products will tend to worsen breakouts or cause redness or peeling because they are too drying or abrasive; this night jelly is so soothing and hydrating while it heals acne spots.
It really is a lovely product; definitely a favorite that I like to always keep around and, as you can see, I’ve pretty much hit pan and must re-stock soon!
I definitely recommend this to anyone and everyone; it is gentle enough even for the most sensitive skin types.
It is very affordable at $20 for 60mL (about 2 Oz.) and since a little goes a long way, this will definitely last you awhile.
Check it out on the Naruko website – here. (US Residents)
There is also the Taiwan site – here.
Other than that, if you are located in another country, I think you should be able to find this on Ebay and Amazon.
