Recently, I've just been in a mood. I don't know what it is. I'm in a mood where I want to write, and review things for you but I don't really want to get on various platforms and post a bunch of stuff. Which sounds odd. I think we can all agree though that sometimes it's nice to take a step back from the social buzz and go back to basics. So thus, here we are. I wanna give you my experience and personal opinion about products. I want you to read it knowing full well I'm just a skincare lover and beauty nerd (maybe hoarder) and not a Doctor, facialist, veteran MUA, etc. All the things that I've "learned", I've learned through cosmetology classes, research, reading various blogs, watching endless videos and taking everyone's thought with a grain of salt (unless they say it's going to melt my face off), and then adding my own experience to the mix. Which I guess is how I then form my opinion and review. So now that you know the scientific breakdown of my thought process lol, let's talk about some products.
I feel like J.ONE just kinda exploded onto the scene in less than a week. Thanks to everyone wanting to use their face primer which I believe is called Jelly Pack or something. I however, got their Hana Cream which is a moisturizer and I'll be honest, it looked cool so I got it. It looks like little pearls and they're actually little capsules. Directions say 1 capsule is enough for your face. Sometimes I agree with that and some nights I really don't. It's enough for your face maybe, but not enough for the neck and chest if you would in fact take this specific moisturizer down the neck.
Ok so we've addressed that they are little capsules. It comes with a plastic "spoon" if you will, so you can get one out. God help you if you loose said "spoon" because those little suckers will get away from you. You will spend more time absolutely cussing that pearl, capsule, or slimy ball out than you would actually applying a moisturizer. Which I must say I don't like to be aggravated right before I go to sleep so there's that.
As for the product inside. It has no synthetic dyes or mineral oil. It's a "concentrated peptide complex" which I love some peptides. It will basically suit all skin types. I think it's cool that they've kinda "portion controlled" the product for you because we rarely use the correct amount on our faces be it too much or too little. You know exactly how much use you'll get out of it due to the amount of capsules you have so that's handy. They cream itself is very nice and is the correct thickness that I prefer and the right texture both in formula and how it leaves the skin feeling afterwards. The claim is "a dramatic anti-wrinkle effect". I think if you were only concerned about the elasticity in your face then maybe I could get on board with it somewhat but if you stick to one of the golden rules which is take it down the neck and onto the chest then I'm afraid this isn't the product that's going to do it. Which leads me into the final and quite negative verdict.
First, it will run out too fast if you use it like a normal moisturizer (down the neck) and it's a bit pricey ($50), it's hard to tell how many capsules you would need, and it's just down right irritating to get one of those capsules out and then to hold onto it to break it, even if you still have your spatula/spoon. So I will continue to use this because I did buy it. It's not something I will re-purchase, it's not something I will recommend either. It's not bad, there are better products that aren't as aggravating, that do more, and cost less for that matter. I would typically talk ingredients with you but I'm not even going to do that because I love my skin care routine to be relaxing and like a therapeutic session for me at night. This takes the fun out of it if I'm being honest.
