I struggle with extremely dry skin year round (it's partly related to an autoimmune disorder), so finding a moisturizer that will keep me going at least through most of the day and also sustain me through the night is a must. I've tried lots of moisturizers, and this one is my favorite so far.
Texture and application: You MUST apply this correctly. Watch the short video in the description above. The texture is exactly like honey. If you try to spread it around or rub it in like a regular moisturizer, it will just pill and be frustrating. Instead, I put a dab on each part of my face. Then, with one finger pressing firmly, I drag it in one direction (for example, on my forehead, I drag my finger horizontally). Then, I use my fingertips to pat it around and into my skin. For a couple minutes, you'll look a bit shiny. Then it absorbs and you're ready to go with sunscreen and/or makeup!
For night time, I put about 5 drops of oil in my palm and a large dollop of this on top. Then I mix it around in my palm with one finger and then apply as usual. Not super sticky (like a lot of sleeping packs), and it lasts throughout the night. I don't feel dry in the mornings.
Overall, it seems weird and unlikely to do much. I was pretty skeptical at first. But my skin is much more regularly hydrated and much happier than it's been in a long time. I'll keep repurchasing this.
Just one complaint: a squirt tube container would probably be a lot more practical packaging solution than a jar.
The gel is a little tacky at first with a nice cooling feel. As you gently press it into your face it disappears and feels good. Unfortunately my skin starts feeling tight and dry in the middle of the night which probably means that I'll have to use a richer moisturizer for my dry skin before appyling the gel.
After years and years of trying to find the right products for my skin, I've finally found it! I almost can't believe it. It feels too good to be true. I can't be thankful enough to my friend who introduced me to Renee from Gothamista. I've had eczema since childhood. My eczema was managed by steroids until it weakened my immune system. Four years ago, I quit steroids and suffered from the side effect called topical steroid withdrawal. My skin was inflamed, irritated, dehydrated, raw, ect. Since then, my skin (esp my face) could not tolerate products that catered to even sensitive skin. I've spent an excessive amount of time and money trying different lotions, creams, oils, ect in hopes of finding one that my skin would agree with. So I started looking into organic and natural products. Even then, until 2 years ago, I could only use coconut oil and jojoba oil. I still wasn't completely satisfied with those oils, but I was managing since I gave up trying different skin care lines. THEN I read that Pyunkang Yul was launched by an institution known for treating atopic skin disorders. I had to give this a shot. Now, I couldn't be more relieved and grateful to have found THE ONE. THANK YOU, THANK YOU PYUNKANG ORIENTAL MEDICINE CLINIC for formulating minimum and safe products. I am a customer for life!!
Actually like this product now, I didn't know how to use until I read some reviews on it. Now it's the last step I use in my skincare and I just love it keeps my Matt longer than any thing I've tried would repurchase.?
I want to start off with back story I had gone to a professional and had a facial done which was fine but two days later my skin broke out terribly and continues to, so I started researching bought some supplements and your Heimish cleansing balm, the tea tree cleaning water, pyunkang yup balancing gel to include in my journey in getting my face back. the break outs have stopped and if a zit pops up it doesn't last long, my pores are shrinking and hopefully it goes back to the way it was before that facial. I use the heimish balm once a week or so depending on how I feel my skin needs, the toner I use every day and it feels amazing, the balancing gel I use at night after I finish my nightly facial routine. I will continue to research and use your products.
Keeps the moisture in. Gives that dewy look, I like it a lot!
I tried a sample of this and liked it enough to buy the full size. Press it between your hands and press it into your face. Do not try to spread it. I use it when I need extra moisture because it seals the products applied. It is not greasy or drying.
The Balancing Gel is great ----very cooling and soothing. It's like pulling a cool blanket over your face after you've applied all the nourishing good stuff of the Pyunkang line.
Anytime my skin looks dull and exhausted, i would add this to my night time routine and i am very happy with the result!
Using this in combination with Urang products and loving the dewy feel of my skin upon application. I dot and then lightly smear the gel onto forehead, cheeks, chin and neck, rub my palms together to warm, and pat into my skin with rounded palms as shown on the demo video. Wake up with soft, plump, nourished skin.
Very comforting, non-irritating, and seals in the moisture and hydration. Yes, it’s tacky, but when used at night, it is not a bother
Haven't seen the balancing result, I don't like the finish either very glossy without any hydrating benefits, don't really see the point of this product.
Weird texture, otherwise great cleanser
truely the best product in my line up
Pyunkang Yul Balancing Gel
It’s difficult to spread evenly on skin and does nothing for my skin. I was hoping it would seal in my moisturizer but was disappointed with it. I will not repurchase it.
The balancing gel is amazing. I use it at night and my skin feels great in the morning. Applying it takes some practice but I'm so happy with how this feels!
I love using this at night after my moisturizer to seal everything in. I've also used it on my hands after a moisturizer when my hands get super dry and cracked. It's a very odd product - it was hard to figure out how to apply it but I eventually settled on dotting it onto my face then patting it in with my hands. The Ohlolly video was super helpful for figuring out how to use this. Feels tacky when first applied but dries down to a bouncy finish.
I use this at night and it really add that extra oomph to my skincare routine. It seals everything in and helps the product really absorb into the skin. LOVE THIS!
Let me begin by saying that I think the biggest problem people have with this product is how to apply it. After much experimenting, I have finally found a way to get this stuff to work.
I use this after I have applied all of my nighttime products, even my moisturizer. This is great at sealing everything in to make sure it penetrates.
I wouldn't touch the jar version with a 10 foot pole. I bought the tube so I can easily squirt the product into my hand without mess, and that's worked so far.
As for application, I haven't had any luck with how they recommend applying it. It always sticks to where I first apply it and doesn't want to budge. I have found that just rubbing the product in my hands (even if it pills) and then pressing it into my skin works the best. The product doesn't get stuck in one place and I get a much more even application this way.
Once you get the hang of applying this, it's really a great addition to your routine. Would definitely recommend it.
I'm still getting the hang of the balancing gel. Like some other reviewers noted, it definitely has a learning curve! But my skin feels incredible when I use it as the last step in my routine (PKY essence toner - facial oil - nutrition cream - balancing gel). I need to try it as a sleeping pack like Oh Lolly recommends. Definitely unlike any other skincare product I've ever tried. It takes some getting used to, but I think I love it!
With the ever changing California weather this has rally helped with the parts of my face that get super dry. It has really prevented pealing or irritation from weather changes/too much AC.
I use this every night before bed and my skin wakes up so smooth and happy. Once I got used to the texture I couldn't get enough of this stuff. Thank you!
My expectations have been surpassed in the best of ways. At first I was worried that since I live in humid South Florida and I have normal/combo skin, that it may be too moisturizing, something that happens a lot to me (hence why I'm into K-beauty). I knew that the "winter" here in FL had my skin feeling slightly drier than normal (Laneige's water sleeping mask wasn't doing anything anymore and I had resorted to Innisfree's sample size of green tea moisturizer), so I took a risk getting the balancing gel though I figured it may be too heavy for me to use on a regular basis since people in winter climates use it. Au contraire. This gel instantly creates a light but perfectly balanced layer that keeps my skin perfectly soft and smooth for the next morning. I'm in love...Also, no strong smells. If you just dab it on your face and then pat quickly almost like you would with a cushion compact then you don't have to worry about the application "learning curve" that people have warned about.
I love the concept and I’m hoping for long term benefits for balancing and detoxifying my skin. I actually love applying it despite the sticky texture. But for hydration and softness it’s just ok.
Incredible as a sleeping packs, forms a light weight protective barrier on the skin that feels occlusive yet is still quite breathable. Not to mention the outstanding customer service from the Oh Lolly team, 5 out of 5 all around!
I already know I enjoy this product. I have tried samples and it has really helped my skin when it cracks open and bleeds in the winter. It does wonders! I purchased this product and it came to me with defected packaging. And let me tell you! OHLOLLY’s customer service got back to me within 10 mintues if emailing them photos and telling them what happened. This has been they very best customer service I have ever had. So I highly recommend this product but I also highly recommend OHLOLLY.
Now that things are getting a bit colder, I like using this so I can keep my skin moist throughout the day. Don't use too much at one time and it sinks right in and makes your skin bouncy and glow.
The Pyungkang Yul Balancing Gel is one of my favorite nighttime skincare products. It keeps all of my previous layers locked in, helps soothe and heal any irritation from acne or environmental damage, and helps protect my sensitive skin from irritation from my pillowcase while I sleep, all while not feeling overly sticky or suffocating. It does take some practice to get the amount right, as using too much at one time makes it hard for the product to soak in and can leave a sticky film on the skin. It could certainly be used day or night, but I find I prefer the lighter, thinner consistency of the Moisture Ampoule for daytime use. This was my second purchase of this product (my first time purchasing it from Ohlolly), and I imagine I will always have a jar in my skincare stash.
Awesome product! This to I would be adding to my facial regime . It is very hydrating and dries into nothing which is peculiar but I love it. This along eith the brsnd's facial toner is a wicked combination. I will definitely be ordering again ... a bigger bottle this time :-)
interesting fun texture and seems to lock all the moisture and my essences/serums at the end of the night!
I don't know how it works but it seems to diminish the lines around my eyes! I definitely will buy again.
Love the product itself. I feel it changed my skin, making it more balanced even when not using the product. Unfortunately the screw cap on the jar broke. Next time will buy the smaller quantity in the tube to see if that’s better. Also think with the consistency of the product the tube might be easier to dispense with anyway.
this is a fun product to use when applied properly (patted in, not rubbed). the gel feels good on my skin but doesn't exactly dry down so i prefer to use it at night. not the most versatile item from this skincare line but a good low fragrance jelly pack option.
This product makes my skin feel dry instead of moist.

“Cosmetics were meant to be brewed, not bought” ~ Pyunkang Yul. The company marries science and nutrition with your skin needs in mind. You will never apply some unnecessary fragrance or ingredient. I adore all the products I’ve tried so far and just received my second order. They feel so decadent and luxurious when applying. I’m chronically ill, so I don’t want to introduce any unnecessary chemicals or dyes, etc., into my body. I love applying the products, my skin plumps up and feels so incredibly hydrated. When I awake in the morning, my face is baby soft and still moisturized. What else could you ask for? The pricing is low in comparison to many other products, so you don’t have to take a loan out to make sure your face is pampered and loved! I am a Pyunkang Yul fan forever! Many thanks and blessings from this happy customer, to Pyunkang Yul! Thank you OhLolly for offering such a wonderful line of skin care products.
I love everything about Pyunkang Yul. This is the first product that got me hooked on this brand. I love how Balancing Gel makes my skin feel--very hydrated and healthy. My skin used to be so dry but now it feels more balanced and never tight or uncomfortable. This gel, the Oil and the Serum are my favorites.
Love the product, the fast service and the personal packaging; thank you! ♥
I can't explain why or how this honey-like thick consistency gel becomes all water-ful (?) on my skin but I love it. This is a super cool product and I can't be without it. LOVE!
Pyunkang Yul Balancing Gel
It was just ok for me being I'm combo. My bottom check area in the morning is ashy but the rest of my face is good. On the other hand I absolutely love the moisture ampul.
I've never tried anything like this before. I'm quite a fanatic when it comes to skincare product and my skin is quite sensitive with skin care products. I have a dry/combo skin. Tried this product since I've heard that Pyunkang Yul uses natural and minimal ingredients. So far I've been using this product at night with my other skin care regimen for 2 weeks and it did not break me out. The texture of this product is very interesting. It's slimy but when you touch it/put it on the skin, it feels gewy and unusual. Nonetheless, it absorbs quite quickly and moisturizes my skin throughout the night. Will continue using this product and hoping it will balance out my skin since I've been having dry skin with oily Tzone.
I'm loving my products...Essemce toner, moisture serum and balancing gel. My redness from rosacea has toned down measurably and the products are gentle and soothing to my skin. My skin looks soft and Dewey. I'm extremely satisfied
with Pyungkang Yul skincare line andhighly recommend. The best my skin has
looked in years!!
I love this skincare for its ingredients and how gentle it is on my skin. I'm using the whole lineright now.
Best skin investment this year!!
Pyunkang Yul Balancing Gel
I use this balancing gel at the end of my night routine and I love the cooling effect that I get from this product. At first it starts sticky and then it transforms into this water-like consistency that is cooling and hydrating.
I love ❤️ everything this brand has to offer. The results are great. My skin is sensitive and this really calms it
I'm very happy with everything in this line. I'm sensitive to synthetics and artificial ingredients. And this skincare line is perfect and very nourishing for my skin. ❤️ ❤️❤️
I have dry and sensitive skin, and I've found that this brand works great for me. It can be a bit sticky for summer nights, but after it absorbs, it acts as a sort of overnight mask. When I wake up, my usually very dry skin is very supple and I can actually see a difference with the first use. I've also found that if I'm about to have a pimple, using this will expedite it so that the pimple dries and disappears within a day. I would highly recommend this.
At first, I had a hard time figuring this product out because it goes on like lumpy honey, but then it feels like a cool water gel mask before absorbing into the skin, leaving a divine layer of moisture that feels divine.
Pyunkang Yul Balancing Gel
Love using this as my last step in my evening routine. It is soothing and moisturizing and seems to lock in all other products I used.

I been using the products Pyunkang Yup for about 3 weeks.Im not sure if I need something else as I'm 44 and don't feel the products are helping me with anti-aging and toning.
Unfortunately the balancing gel left my skin feellinh terribly dry and I don't have dry skin! I tried it a number of times to be sure and each time it was very uncomfortable on the skin, I have never had this problem before!
Been having a lot of break outs due to stress and hormonal level changes. I bought the cleanser, essence toner and moisture gel... skin is completely cleared up!! Amazing
I love it so much ! Weird texture but then I learned how to apply it and it works well on my skin ! It calms angry acne and speeds up the healing process! I will definitely order more !
This is the most interesting skin care product I've ever used. The thickness, the feel, the lack of spreadability - all very new to me. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the learning curve on using this is so high and I'm still not sure I'm using it to it's maximum benefit due to the difficulty of applying the Balancing Gel.
I must say that I have never seen my skin look so smooth, so nourished, so calm. I use it twice a day on most days. I love the barrier it creates under my make up during the day. At night I use it after my facial oil and moisturizer. I then apply the Balancing Gel and lock it all in. When I wake up my skin is so smooth and soft, I barely recognize it.
I have rosacea, not the worst case ever, but my skin is so sensitive and is very easily irritated. Like everything else I use on my skin, immediately the Balancing Gel makes my skin red, but less than a minute later it resolves and leaves a glowing finish. I can't imagine not having this in my skin care regimen!
This is an amazing product. While it has the consistency of the J.One jelly pack, this is a far more superior product. It is soothing and hydrating without being too sticky, can help to balance the skin as it indicates, and is truly versatile. I use as I would the jelly pack as a last step before sunscreen and it grips my makeup well and provide a smooth canvas while again, adding moisture. I also use it as a sleeping pack and man does it deliver! I wake up with plump, well moisturized skin every night I use this! I recently experienced a hormonal breakout and in my dermatology position, I need my skin to look good. I used only Pyunkang Yul products with retinoids over the long weekend and my skin is clearing beautifully. As a dermatology provider I try A LOT of product. This balancing gel, and brand as a whole, is exceptional. Highly recommend the line and Ohlolly.
I have the toner and nutrition cream from this line and have also tried the cleanser. This product is special. Yes, it feels like a dupe for the J.One jelly pac. However, this is much more hydrating with a cleaner ingredients list. I have used it in the morning as I would my jelly pack and as a sleeping mask to really lock moisture overnight. I have most definitely noticed a difference in how well hydrated my skin is when I use this. The results of these products are inarguable. Highly recommend Pyunkang Yul and Ohlolly!
I've just been introduced to this product and I am still observing the effects of it on my skin.
I live in a desert climate, and dry skin is always a concern. This doesn't hydrate on it's own, so expect to layer moisture beneath. It holds it in well.
Late last week I placed a small order & received the Pyunkang Yul Cleansing Foam, Essence Toner & an Evercos sheet mask (all 3 products are fabulous & have exceeded my expectations!) along with a sample of the Pyunkang Yul nourishing cream, oil & this Balancing Gel. I decided to try all of the samples last night & I'm blown away! I've been struggling with dehydrated skin since entering my 40's (over a year ago) & one of my main issues is that I'll go to bed with my skin moisturized & but when I wake up my skin is drier than the Sahara. But after using the Pyunkang Yul Balancing Gel as the last step in my PM skincare routine I woke up with the softest, smoothest, deeply hydrated, line free skin this morning! My skin tone has been evened out & is back to it's former "peaches & cream" complexion of my youth. My skin hasn't looked & felt this good in YEARS! I'll be placing another order in the very near future!
My favorite step in skin care (aside from the 7 skin method, which rocks!) has been applying this balancing gel! My skin suffers from a whole lot of TWL (water loss from the skin), which is why I think this product is proving so effective in keeping my skin moisturized and fresh. The gel has a tendency to pill and ball up, but if you press it gently in with warm hands, it will melt right into the skin and form an extremely moist barrier that soothes skin and locks in all skin care. It also does a great job of balancing, so I think even those with dehydrated but oily skin will find this gel works well with their skin-type.
I absolutely love that I can use this both during the day, and before bed as a sleeping pack.
Pyunkang Yul has been giving me everything I need without all the extraneous ingredients that irritate my skin. Highly recommend!
