J.One Black Jelly Pack Review:
I admit I had prejudices about this brand and its products. Too much hype makes counter effect on my first opinion while contemplating about the power of good marketing strategy. Alas, I took the bait. And I am glad I did. This product is (I don’t know where to begin from) a moisturizer/sleeping pack/all in one skin enhancer. All I can say is it does its job.
I must however mention its white twin brother J.One Jelly Pack that is also all in one moisturizer but primarily it’s a primer proving it by its sticky texture in purpose of almost impregnating skin before applying any SPF or makeup. That is (besides the ingredients list) the most significant difference between them.
♥ An overnight rescue mask that firms and hydrate skin until the morning with a blend of 6 nourishing, midnight-hued antioxidant-rich ingredients.
♥ The Black Jelly Pack is the nighttime compliment to the cult-status Jelly Pack. Used as a powerfully hydrating overnight treatment, extracts of black cumin seed, truffle, black currant, blackberry, black bee propolis, and black pearl visibly firm, lift, and plump the skin.
♥ The high antioxidant content of this overnight repairing treatment protects skin and fights visible signs of aging, leaving skin hydrated and soft. The Black Jelly pack can be used in the morning or evening as an all-in-one potent serum and hydrating mask.

J.One Black Jelly Pack Review:
Black bottle in white card packaging (White Jelly Pack comes in white bottle with black card packaging). Typical J.One design, very simple, yet elegant.
Product itself is blackish/purplish gel that is smoothly applied on skin leaving no sticky or tacky trace. Beautiful texture unique for this product and that is one of the reasons why I particularly love it. Scent is somewhat fruity, light and fades away very quickly. Pleasant.
I must say, I don’t use it only at night routine. Actually, I have it on my face in this very moment, as I write this text. It’s midday, and I don’t mind it on my face. If I used too much of it, I would just spray a little bit of mist (of any kind) over my face and problem solved.
This is water based, emollient but not too moisturizing product packed with you’ve guessed it “black” anti-aging ingredients: black pearl, black currant, blackberry, along with some standard skin enhancers like niacinamide, adenosine, hyaluronic acid, various herbal, plankton and propolis extracts.
No rich, hanbang ingredients, but also no irritants (at least for my skin, please check ingredients list for your known allergies). Not too shabby I’d say.
So, performance you see is, well, great. Not exactly typical overnight mask as it claims to be. See the bottle, it says:
“Overnight rescue mask for nourished, glowing skin by morning.”
It is not rich in texture or moisturizing at first sight like other masks by their nature. It does not leave skin oiled up or richly moisturized like other masks. It actually does not leave any trace. It just somehow does its job by the next morning by locking every other skin care step in. But the skin in the morning IS better looking and well nourished although it would not seem to be.
I am not sure what would think of this if you who have dry and very dry skin. It would be enough to lock the moisture in for the night, I don’t know, but might work as day moisturizer also.
I measure the functionality of the skin care product (unfortunately) by its ability to work with my rosacea. This product works fine with it. And there go the kudos.
J.One products really differ from any other product of the same sort. No product of theirs is like other product – primer is not actually primer, sleeping pack is not just that… and different approach is needed here. For the better I’d say.
I already said that I am not sure would the dry and very dry skin types enjoy this product (this much), but the normal, combination, even oily and sensitive skin types are good to go.
To conclude this review I would say this one would be with me for a long time. There is some charm in the product that keeps me focused to it and makes me choose it more often than any other moisturizer/sleeping pack that I have in my stash. I would say J.One did a good job only by that, don’t you think?
