The Best Jelly Face Masks for Instant Hydration

Move over, sheet masks: There’s a new mask in town. Whether your skin is naturally dehydrated or the change in season is the culprit, a jelly face mask is a must this time of year, as they’re essentially like a tall glass of water for your face. Packed full of moisture-rich ingredients and with a cooling, calming texture that soothes even the most irritated skin, the best jelly face masks leave your skin feeling supple, refreshed and glowy.

Originally from Korea (like all the best skincare ideas), jelly face masks have a light, bouncy texture. The formula won’t drip or make a mess either. There are tonnes of different jelly face masks out there, and whilst most of them focus on hydration, there are other benefits too. If you love acids, try Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Jelly Mask (£15), which contains resurfacing AHAs and a calming jelly texture. If you’re more low-maintenance, try an overnight mask like Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask (£40). Or if you’re feeling fancy, try Bella Hadid’s choice, Dior Glow Better Fresh Jelly Mask (£46).

Whatever your skin type, we’ve got a jelly face mask to suit you. Scroll down to see the best of the best.
