J.One Hana Cream Review

J.One Hana Cream

Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Helen here. Today I want to share with our dreamers and creators this lovely product from J.One, the Hana cream. The J.One brand is created by a famous South Korean actress, who starred in K-Dramas like Empress Ki and Secret Garden. That actress is Ha Ji Won and she's one of South Korea's most sought after actresses. Like many famous South Korea actresses, Ha Ji Won is also known for her beauty. She was featured in Get It Beauty's Talking Mirror show (a South Korean beauty show) where she shared about the products in her pouch as well as her beauty routine. Some of J.One's products were also featured in that video as well. Anyways, let's get to know the J.One Hana Cream.

Product Description: This unique J.One Hana capsule cream can provide anti-aging care while keeping the skin moist and firm. The capsule cream can also help to restore the skin's elasticity. Each spherical capsule contains high concentrations of natural premium herbal extracts, nourishing oils, and more. These ingredients include collagen boosting peptides, sunflower seed oil, macadamia seed oil, and zhi mu plant extract. Together the ingredients work in synergy to optimize each one's nutritional contents, thus delivering great results overall. This capsule cream can help to restore the skin to a visibly smoother and softer texture with a healthy, pinkish radiance.

To Use: Cleanse and tone the skin first. Take a single capsule and crush it between your fingertips. Warm up the crushed capsule and gently apply it onto the face.

Packaging: The J.One Hana Cream has this luxurious feel to it. The packaging is in black and white. The box packaging has a lot of information about the cream, although mainly in Korean. The container is frosted with a twist-off lid. A spatula is provided as well. The expiration date can be found on the bottom of the container.

Scent: This cream has a baby powder scent. It smells like one of my daughter's baby powder scented hand creams but a bit stronger. Personally, I do not mind the scent but for those who are sensitive to fragrances it might be wise to skip this product.

Color: The capsules are white in color with a tint of cream.

Texture: Ah, the fun part. These little capsules are like little cream balls. When I first picked them up, they felt like an in-between of pudding and cream cheese balls. They are super neat. Although be warned they are also a bit slippery. Although I have not dropped any of them yet, I have had some close encounters. When the cream balls are crushed and mushed, it becomes a rich creamy cream that spreads easily and feels really moisturizing.

Helen's Thoughts: I have normal to dry skin and my skin loves this cream. My daughter also gave this cream a try but her combo to oily skin was not a fan of it. The Hana cream is too much for her skin type and it left an oily layer on top of her skin. Although, for my skin, it just leaves a dewy finish. So, it would seem that this J.One Hana cream would be better for those with normal, normal to dry, or dry skin types.

I have been testing this cream for a little over a month and so far my skin loves it. The cream is really moisturizing and it keeps the skin soft and firm. I have only been using this cream in the evenings as a night cream and it keeps my skin hydrated throughout the night. When I wake up in the morning my skin would be soft and smooth, the prefect canvas for my makeup applications. The instructions say one capsule is enough for the entire face but for me it seems like 1.5 capsules would be best. Since the capsules do not come in halves (and I am often to lazy to create my own), sometimes I just use 1 capsule or other times I would use two. I have not noticed drastic changes with my wrinkles but some of my fine lines have lightened.

Let's talk about the price of this cream. This is not an inexpensive cream and if you are on a budget, you probably would not go for this cream. I would not say this is a super expensive cream either, but $40 for 40g means $1 - 1g. On a budget friendly prospective, it just does not seem very friendly. There are other creams that are similar but costs less, so those are also worth a shot. Personally, I look at a cream's functions rather than its price. Unless it costs like $200, then I need to rethink that purchase. $40 is not too much for me, however, I have tried other creams that have the same skincare properties but costs way less.

When capsules are mushed, they become creams.

-scent might not be suitable for everyone
-product is not suitable for all skin types

Helen's Rating: ❤ ❤   

Final Thoughts: This J.One Hana Cream is a great moisturizing cream with added benefits. It is great for my skin type and I think it would be good for normal to dry skin types as well. However, it might not be suitable for those with combo to oily skin types. The cream offers a lot of benefits but it is not enough for its price and size. I think it could do more in the anti-aging department.

Would I purchase this in the future? Still debatable. I like this cream but I have also tried other creams that functions the same with a less expensive price. So, while it is an option, it is not on the top of the list. Do I think is cream is worth a try? If you are on a budget, this cream is probably not the one for you. (Check out this one instead!) However, if you have the money, is intrigued by the cream's spherical shape, and is looking for a moisturizing cream that provides anti-aging care, then this might be the cream for you.

  1. This might be a strange question, but can you guesstimate how many little balls there are in the jar? I don't know why I keep thinking that this unusual "texture" would make using it more wasteful (I have seen someone else mention that one ball doesn't seem enough, but two are too much,) so I am trying to figure out how long a jar lasts if used once a day. Thank you!

    1. By our estimate, we want to say that there's definitely over 100 little orbs and possibly over 120 as well. My mom's already been using this for a little over a month and she uses either 1 or 2 per night. The perfect ratio for her would be 1.5 but making .5 each time is a bit of a hassle. Hope this helps~ ^^
