J.One Jelly Cushion By Re:cipe Review
Hey Dreamers and Creators!
What is your ideal cushion? My ideal cushion has to have decent coverage, moisturizing properties, a lightweight formula, sun protection, and has a natural looking finish. Of course, the shade has to be right too and these days that can be so hard for some reason. Still, that does not stop me from testing out cushions I want to try. I have been wanting to try this J.One Jelly Cushion since last year and I finally purchased it a little while ago. I initially held off on the purchase because at full price it can be quite expensive. Shelling out a ton of money for something I may or may not like was not ideal, so I decided to wait. Luckily, there was a sale on this cushion, so I purchased it right away. I wanted to test it and see if it could be my ideal cushion. Read on to find out!

Packaging: J.One's packaging has always been simple, sleek, and to the point. This is no different for their jelly cushion, which comes in a compact case shown above. The cushion comes with one refill as well (see image below). Like most cushions, the Jelly Cushion comes with a protective sticker that needs to be removed before using.
Scent: Light, fresh floral scent. Fragrance has been added to this product but it is really light.
Color: There are only 2 shades available and the shade I have is #23. The other shade is #21.
Texture: Liquid foundation like in terms of texture. It is not super runny but still fluid and easy to apply. It also has a natural and satin finish.
Helen's Thoughts: The first J.One product I have ever tried was their Hana Cream. I liked it. I wanted to try more of J.One's products but shelling out a ton of money for something I may or may not like just did not seem worth it. So, I held it off. However, just before Memebox stopped being a retailer they had multiple sales and one item on sale was this J.One cushion. Naturally, I picked it up.
When it comes to cushions I look for one that has decent coverage, moisturizing properties, lightweight formula that is not sticky, travel friendly, sun protection, and has a natural looking finish. The Jelly cushion offers all of that and more. My normal to dry skin loves the cushion's nourishing and hydrating formula. The shade is close to perfect for me and the coverage it offers means one layer is enough. The natural satin finish the cushion leaves makes my skin look a little brighter as well. I have been using this cushion for a while now and I just recently switched in the refill, so you can say I like it a lot.
While this cushion is great, it has a few downsides too. The biggest downside is the lack of shade options. This is actually an issue with a lot of cushions and it would be nice if companies broadened their shade options. The second downside is an issue for me currently. It is hard to find this product locally. If I want to get it now, I would have to shop through a shopping service, as I cannot find it elsewhere. Another slight downside is that this cushion can settle into fine lines. However, this issue is easily fixed by wearing a good primer underneath.
-medium coverage, buildable
-natural, satin finish
-comes with a refill
-only comes in 2 shades
-hard to find locally
Helen's Rating: ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ♡
Final Thoughts: I really like this cushion. It has the right formula for my skin type, it offers the kind of coverage I want and it has a nice satin finish to boot. The shade is a little off but that is easily fixable. The only issue I have with it is that it is hard to find locally. I might have to use another cushion until I can build up a decent size haul for a shopping service purchase.
Would I repurchase it in the future? Yes, as soon as I find a good place to buy it from. Do I think this cushion is worth a try? Yes, if you are looking for the same kind of formula I am. I think this cushion is great, if the shade and formula is right definitely give it a try!
