When it comes to the Kardashians and the Jenners, the name is enough to swipe that credit card running low on limits. But, it’s a ‘sad bad news’ moment for every skincare fanatic who were waiting for Kylie Jenner’s skincare line to unveil.
If you thought that the name is enough to burn your pocket this season, then we’d say – “NOT THIS TIME!”
So the big moment arrived and numerous cards were swiped, but what didn’t turn out well, were the ‘not so happy faces.’ The self-made beauty mogul Kylie Jenner seemed to ‘absolutely love’ her six products from her line but her fans weren’t too convinced and they saw right through the crisp corny pink branding to criticize one particular product – The Walnut Face Scrub.
While Kylie Jenner was busy boasting and posting about Kylie Skin on her Instagram and letting out a whiff about how great all her products were, her fans wouldn’t settle for anything less than ‘just great.’
We’ve known Kylie Jenner to be this ‘smarty’ but this lady reviewed her Walnut Scrub saying, “My Walnut Scrub is exactly like St. Ives!” – We can’t really stop with the BIG LOL! What was this lady thinking? The 37 second Instagram video (which has now been taken down) was out there to convince fans that it was ‘safe to use,’ but it turned out to be a ‘bad missed goal.
Kylie Jenner, The Lip Kit Star couldn’t really sparkle bright with her Walnut Scrub, it got her rather roughed out this time!
St. Ives Apricot Walnut Scrub, the rough, scruffy, gruesome emery paper on the skin that every 90’s teenager was obsessed about was sued in the late 2016s and its never-ending negative reviews got them ‘out of sight and out of mind.’ But thanks to Kylie’s ‘sweet love’ for the product, it has now gone on a trending binge.
St. Ives was sued in a class-action lawsuit by Kaylee Browning and Sarah Basile, who claimed that the Apricot Scrub was “unfit to be sold or used as a facial scrub.” (Kaylee condemns but Kylie approves – coincidence much?)
Dermatologists have claimed that the St.Ives Apricot Walnut Scrub and The Kylie Walnut Scrub contain walnut powder, which is too abrasive for the face but it works great if you want to gift it to your boyfriends ex girlfriend.
Kylie Jenner should remain in her fashion bubble because her claim on beauty and skincare is absolutely haywire. In her video, she claims to say that the scrub “is gentle enough to be used every day.”
On that note…
“Over-exfoliation can lead to irritation, dryness, and compromise of the skin barrier and exfoliating only two times a week is more than enough.”
