Today review is for Naruko Taiwan Magnolia Brightening and Firming Night Gelly EX. If you follow my post, I did introduced this Naruko brand before. It is a brand from Taiwan founded by beauty guru Niu-Er. This brand basically based on natural plants ingredients, free of harmful ingredients such as parabean, talc silicone, mineral oil etc. Niu-Er spent 20 years studying & researching skincare ingredients and 7 years developing product, as a result Naruko was born. That’s impressive right? Coming back to the night Gelly, at first when I saw this product, I thought they misspelled the Jelly as Gelly, afterwards I found out that the Gelly actually derives from combination of the words Gel and Jelly due to the texture consistency resemble in between Gel and Jelly, thus the name Gelly. This night Gelly is a sleeping mask which you put on overnight and wash of in the morning, claims to whiten, moisturized and provide anti-aging/firming effect besides the essential oil for calming/therapeutic effect.

This mask came in a sturdy bottle container with inner lid cover and a mini plastic spatula for hygiene purpose. The consistency of the Gelly close to gel like yet softer, bouncy, spreadable; white almost translucent in colour. The scent is of a flower/herbal and not the best scent to my nose, I dislike the scent but its bearable. It spread and blend well on skin without stickiness or tackiness. It felt like moist layer of invisible mask on skin but breathable. I found this mask brighten and hydrate my skin well, it does what it claims except for the firming and anti-aging which produce no immediate visible result. Since this product contains a lot of plant extract, it is best to empty within 6 months. Overall a decent night mask, personally I will not be re-purchase since I don’t enjoy the scent.
