Skincare first, makeup second. I know it’s ironic to start with Glossier’s famous tagline, but it summarizes everything best.
Just last week, reality star and beauty mogul Kylie Jenner announced an upcoming launch of her Kylie Skin. I predicted that this would happen sooner or later, probably some of you did too. Later on, she unveiled a complete skincare set sporting a millennial pink look.
The skincare collection is vegan, cruelty-, paraben-, and sulfate-free. Which is great news as every brand in the market is dropping all the harmful chemicals from its products.
At 21, Kylie is continuing to release different beauty products, beginning with her fast-selling lipstick kits. The complete collection is set to drop on May 20, 2019 on the website, KylieSkin.com.
The collection covers all the skincare essentials: Makeup Removing Wipes ($10), Foaming Face Wash ($24), Vanilla Milk Toner ($22), Walnut Face Scrub ($22), Vitamin C Serum ($28), Moisturizer ($20), and Eye Cream ($24).
While a lot of people are ecstatic about this skincare launch, some are not. Everyone who knows skincare will agree that some of the products are cringe-worthy.
They smear around makeup, dirt, and bacteria and irritate your skin. Rubbing can cause pigmentation and wrinkling of the skin.
A major controversial product is the Walnut Face Scrub. It was back in 2016 when news about a lawsuit about St. Ives Apricot Scrub came flying around. If you still don’t know by now, St. Ives Apricot Scrub contains walnut shells.
Walnut shells have been known to cause inflammation, accelerate aging, and damage the skin. Now, given that our face is the window to the soul, do we want to ruin it in any way? Of course, the answer is definitely not!
The complete list of the product’s ingredients will be released before the launch of Kylie Skin. Consumers can see and check out the ingredients before purchasing.
Honestly speaking, we’re on board with this collection. We just hope our views don’t change after the launch.
