Unique Skincare Textures You'll Fall in Love With!

[As published on HERE]
Sometimes, your skincare regime can fall into a rut. It gets kind of boring going through the same old routine every morning and evening, and you wish there was something to inject the fun back into your regime. Thankfully, there’s hope. Here are some of our favourite skincare textures, because who says you can’t have fun with your skincare while seriously maintaining your skin’s flawlessness?

Water drop
This unique gel-to-water technology makes applying skincare fun. Seeing the gel transform instantly into water droplets does add quite a bit of novelty. The more you massage, the more watery it gets, and it dries velvety-matte after full absorption. Although not new, this water drop technology is prominently featured in a number of Korean beauty products, most notably sleeping masks and hand creams.

Jelly skincare
Women have always been fascinated by jelly-like textures in both fashion and beauty. Jelly shoes will never go out of style, and jelly makeup is indeed a treat for the eyes. When Clarins released their Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balms last year, we wanted them so bad it hurt.

Now, the jelly craze has extended beyond makeup, because HELLO jelly skincare. Whether in wobbly solid form or crystal-like liquid form, we’d go crazy for jelly every single time.

In our hot climate, something refreshing is always welcome. Kind of like pop rocks for your skin, sparkling or crackling products come in an aerosol can, and dispenses as an ultra-cooling mousse crackles when applied on skin. Simply shake the can, squeeze out a suitable amount and press onto skin while enjoying the weird ‘popping’ sensation.

Who can resist the gooey, sticky texture of honey? It’s so fun to play with, and nobody will scold you for playing with your food because it isn’t food (ha!). Honey-textured skincare really looks and feels like the real deal, and while it gets a little getting used to, it’s perfect for indulging in a DIY massage without causing any friction on your skin.
