Yuni Yunicorn Celestial Jelly Mask Cleanser

One look at this pearlescent goop and you’ll be tempted to scoop it up and smear it all over your face—which is exactly what you’re supposed to do. Apply the fluffy gel formula over dry skin and add water to transform it into a milky cleanser. Option to use it as a hydrating mask as well by simply leaving it on your skin for an extra minute or two before rinsing.

milk makeup hydro grip primer

Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer

At first touch, this gel primer is a bit tacky. As you tap it into your skin, it dries down and thins to a slightly sticky finish, which actually makes your makeup adhere better. Packed with hemp-derived cannabis seed extract and blue agave extract, it plumps up fine lines and creates a smooth, even surface for your foundation.

Kaja Mochi Glow Bouncy Highlighter

We get such a thrill from using this highlighter. A cream-to-powder formula, it gives you the most incandescent glow with a few pats of your fingertips. On that note: You’ll love the way it feels when you press into the squishy surface.

shiseido color gel lip balm

Shiseido Colorgel Lip Balm

What’s lightweight and buttery and melts into your lips? That would be this balm, which is formulated with both high- and low-melting-point waxes to glide over your pout (filling in any lines and ridges), while leaving behind a semi-sheer veil of color and shine that’s impossible to overdo.

amika reset exfoliating shampoo

Amika Reset Jelly Exfoliating Shampoo

I don’t think you’re ready for this jelly...exfoliating shampoo. The soft pink hue comes from a detoxifying pink clay and the scrubbing action comes courtesy of refined sea salt. Massage it into wet strands to get a tingly clean once a week.

cosrx hydrogel very simple pack

Cosrx Hydrogel Very Simple Pack

Love Jell-O? You will adore these wiggly, wobbly gel patches. Cram-jammed with soothing botanical extracts (like centella asiatica, which promotes healing), they’re made to troubleshoot any dry or inflamed areas of skin. All you have to do is use the enclosed set of tweezers to grab and place a jelly disc over any spots that need TLC.
