Oily Skin and Primer? J.One Jelly Pack Review

If you’re unfamiliar with primer, your first question is about what is it? It’s a product that you put on your face after washing and before applying your makeup. It’s your base and makeup gripper (keeps your makeup on ALL DAY). It can also smooth out and mattify your skin (takes away that nasty oily shine).

I’ve tried a bunch of primers; the cheaper and more expensive ones.  I really wanted to try the Jelly Pack as I haven’t used many Asian brands yet.

I’m the self-proclaimed poster child for oily skin. I never look forward to hot weather because I’m a walking McDonald’s deep frier. (Even my eyelids get oily… MY EYELIDS… How? Why?)

Side note: for all you oily eyelid girls out there – I can’t recommend Urban Decay’s Primer Potion enough. I use it every time I have eyeliner or eyeshadow on. It stays on all day and the tube lasts forever.

Well ladies, let’s get into the review! 

Ingredients:

Water, Polysorbate 80, PEG-150 Disterate, Niacinamide, 1,2-Hexanediol, Rosa Damascena Flower Water, Rosemary Leaf Water, Chamomile Flower Water, Yeast/Fermented black tea extract, Imperata Cylindrica Root Extract, Nuphar Luteum Flower Extract, Sea Daffodil Flower Extract, Glycerin, Adenosine, Hydrolyzed Hylauronic Acid, Dipropylene Glycol, Sucrose Distearate, Cyclopentasilxane, Butylene Glycol, Dimethicone, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, PEG-8, Hydroxyethylcelluclose, Potassium Sorbate Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, PVP, Fullerene, Carbomer, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Sodum Benzoate, Citric Acid, Dehydroacetic Acid.

Pros

  • Disappears quickly into your skin.
  • You don’t need very much — a pump and 1/2 works.
  • Makeup stayed on all day.

Cons

  • Has a faint weird smell but goes away when you put on your makeup.
  • You can only pat the product on, good luck trying to rub it on.

Whenever I wear makeup the first thing that always disappears on my face is my blush, and I’m not sure why as I don’t normally touch my face (besides a wee itch here and there). But, somehow midday — it’s so long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, good night!

But, low and behold whenever I wear this wonder jelly my makeup stays on throughout the day. Including my contour. GIRRRLLLL what is this witchcraft?! I would say that I’m impressed by it and glad I bought it.

Have you tried this product before? What are your thoughts?

Love,
