📢 New product alert 📢 We just released the new nooni Deep-Cleanse Snowflake Jelly Cleansing Oil and it created quite a stir when we got our hands on the final product. So here’s our review of what it’s all about:

This cleanser is somewhere between a cleansing oil and a cleansing balm. It’s a first step cleanser designed to remove makeup. You get 70g of product (a spatula is included) for $23.

INGREDIENTS
Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Octyldodecanol, PEG-20 Glyceryl Triisostearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Dextrin Palmitate, PEG-8 Isostearate, Polybutene, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Water, Tocopheryl Acetate, Fragrance, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Butylene Glycol, Nelumbo Nucifera Flower Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexyglycerin, Oxygen, Citric Acid

  • Coconut Oil: helps keep the skin moisturized
  • Shea Butter: helps keep the skin moisturized
  • Citric Acid: gently exfoliates the skin to remove dead skin cells

TEXTURE / PACKAGING

The scent is like a light Dove soap bar: a bit of sweet, a bit of floral, mostly fresh.

The texture of this product is different from most cleansers we’ve tried. Balm cleansers tend to look matte and murky, but this one looks like petroleum jelly and is glossier. Thankfully, it’s soft and doesn’t feel slimy.

The best part is the packaging. I greatly prefer a flip up lid over ones that twist off 👍 The TRUE hero is the fact that you can snap the spatula into. the. lid. No more fumbling, no more lost spatulas, no more extra inner lids 🙇

PERFORMANCE

To those with sensitive or dry skin, I’m happy to report that the Jelly Cleansing Oil doesn’t strip the skin! Often, balm cleansers can be too heavy and oils can be too messy, but this one solves both concerns easily!

If you use any sort of sleeping pack or gel moisturizer, that’s the initial feeling of the cleanser. It turns oily as soon as you rub it in. The jelly texture spreads more gently than a balm, the latter being thicker and heavier. I do find that I tend to grab a little more than I normally would with a balm because of how thin the texture is.

The cleansing power wasn’t much different from my usual balm cleanser. My makeup was easily melted away. In the demo below, I used a Beauty People gel eyeliner, an Etude House lip tint (which I always have trouble fully removing), an eyeshadow from I’m Meme, and a chunky glitter eyeshadow from the Soothingsista #EYELOVE SF palette. After massaging the product in for about 30-40 seconds, I was left with a trace of eyeliner and some of the lip tint.

I went back in with a foam cleanser- what I would normally do each night- and was able to remove the remaining makeup 😊

A pleasant surprise turned out to be the lack of blurry/stinging eyes. Typically, my vision will go blurry or sting if product gets in there, but I didn’t experience anything like that with the Jelly Cleansing Oil.

It’s not always accurate to test the pH of oil cleansers, but I tried it anyway. I massaged some cleanser on my hand for about three seconds. Testing that, I got what looks like either a 4.0 or 4.5.

TL;DR

Pros:
– moisturizing, doesn’t dry out skin, super gentle
– 100% win packaging
– doesn’t cause blurry / stinging eye sensations
– light scent
– not messy to use
– low pH*

Cons:
– contains fragrance
– coconut oil may be comedogenic for some people
– might not completely remove stubborn makeup in one go

The Bottom Line: This cleanser is definitely worth a shot if your current first cleanser isn’t doing the job. It’s gentle, the scent isn’t invasive, and it removes makeup easily. I’m sold on the packaging and the fact that it did exactly what I needed it to ❤️ The price point is about the same as other cleansers I’ve used in the past (I’ve tried cheaper ones and they usually dry my skin out like craaazy- Etude House, looking at you..) so there’s really nothing to lose out on here 🤷‍♀️
