Our NEW Skin Gelée launched this month, and we wanted to take this opportunity to explain a little more about it, how it can be used, and why we think it’s such a perfect addition to your summer skincare regime.
First things first though, what on earth is a gelée?! Until the UK team actually tried the product, we were fully planning on calling it a skin gel. But once the product arrived and we tested it... we realised we HAD to keep the name gelée. Why? Because it's not a gel, not a serum, and not a cream....it's more like a water-based semi-solid jelly that you work into the skin. The result? It leaves the skin feeling utterly hydrated, yet matte.
The summer sun brings with it specific summer skin concerns. Excess heat and humidity can cause sticky skin, caused by excess perspiration and sebum. Overly air-conditioned offices can severely dry the skin, and more exposure to the sun can cause skin stress, including sunburn. Your skin requires moisture-retention support to deliver moisture deep within the skin, while also adjusting the balance of sebum. This Skin Gelée is cooling and hydrating, replenishing lost moisture and gently soothing heat-strained skin.
This portable gelée is blended with aloe vera and acerola to moisturise, soothe and cool the skin, and fragranced with the refreshing scent of lemon and a hint of Japanese Hakka mint.
Easy to use and suitable for face and body care, chilling it in the fridge before use intensifies its cooling and soothing effect. This portable and heat-busting gelée can even be used on top of make-up, making it the perfect summer accessory. It pairs perfectly with our Seasonals Line Japanese Citrus Moisturiser.
Our Skin Gelée is fabulously flexible when it comes to how to use it - from moisturiser to after-shave face care, serum to scalp care, this mighty little gelée can do it all. See below for more details on how to use it - and feel free to send us any of your usage hacks if you discover some more!
