[Holika Holika] Gonyak Soft *JELLY in Cleansing Cream*

Within the last few month [Holika Holika] released some new product lines. One of these is the Gonyak Soft line, whose products are good for dry and sensitive skin, because they are mild and moisturizing.
I got the Gonyak Soft JELLY in Cleansing Cream for make-up removal. The other available products are:
- JELLY in Cleansing Foam
- JELLY Scrub
- PERFECT Bubble Foam
- MOISTURE Cleansing Balm

Description: Mild and moisturizing cleansing with smooth konjac biz. Konjac ingredient that is excellent on hydrolysis of protein cleanses make-up impurities and pores cleanly. Stimulates skin gently and gives massage to create transparent skin.
No-petrol lithium, no-benzophenone, and no-artificial color.
The cleansing cream comes inside a pink jar, contains 150ml and has a white twist-off lid.
The entire description is in Korean only.
Underneath the lid is a second white cover to protect the product inside.
Its main ingredient is Konjac Root Extract (10%)
Compared with other cleansing creams the Gonyak Soft JELLY in Cleansing Cream doesn't have a super smooth and creamy consistency. The white texture is a a mix of cream and jelly.
You can see all the small jelly bits/ clumps inside this cleansing cream.
These jelly bits gentle massage your skin and removes the make-up.
Beside the soft texture it also has a soft and slightly sweet scent, what I really like.
After trying this cleanser out I can say that it removed my make-up very well and left my skin soft afterwards. It even removed my eye make-up without burning in my eyes.
How to use: Pour moderate amount on dry hands, and remove make-up while massaging gently all over face. Wipe off with tissue, and rinse with warm water.

Price: around 13,50,- €/ US$18 
Bought at: eBay (rubyruby76)  

What I love: 
It removes make-up well without drying out my skin. 

What I don’t like: 
Nothing yet! 

Will I buy this again? Maybe I will. Would also like to try out the Cleansing Foam and/ or Bubble Foam.


  1. oo I'm definately going to check this line out because I'm looking for new skincare products and my skin has been dry this winter! Thank you for the review!

    1. Too bad they don't have any moisturizing face creams, just cleansers. ><

    2. Yes I wish they had creams but I'm looking for new makeup remover that moisturizes and doesn't burn my eyes!

  2. I like this review, the fact that this can remove eye makeup! How does it do on waterproof mascara (the true test, lol)?

    I also posted this in my new reddit community for asian beauty lovers ^_^

    1. Unfortunately, I don't have any waterproof eye make-up atm. >< Could test it only on normal make-up and it worked well.

  3. this sounds great :D i have super sensitive skin so usually most make-up removers irritate my skin a lot T^T

    1. Maybe this one would suit ur skin better... =)

  4. the concept seems unique. jelly cleansing cream <3 it looks like a mild scrub though ^^

    1. Yap, the jelly inside does massage your skin and might remove some dead skin cells. =) A normal face scrub works better, though.

  5. I want to try this cleansing cream. Is it available in any stores?
