J.One is a brand popular Korean Actress, Ha Jiwon created. But never thought of actually getting my hands on her products due to the price. Luckily, I was able to get this Jelly Pack during a large sale hosted my Memebox, cutting the price in half.

The philosophy of the brand is to condense the skincare routine to minimal multi-functional products to fit a busy schedule. I definitely see it in this product. When I am lazy to follow through with my skin care, I can put this on after toner and I can see improvements in firmer, smoother skin. A lot of people don’t like this product because the consistency is thick and hard to spread on skin. A trick I have is to pumping it onto my finger tips then rubbing between my fingertips (of both hands) together to “break” the product before patting it onto the skin. Another trick I use is applying the product while my skin is still wet with essence (from sheet masks). It is MUCH easier to spread throughout the skin. I’ve grown to like to this product, and am looking forward to trying the black version of this pack.
