KYLIE SKIN REVIEW

The time has come! We are finally ready to give you guys a Kylie Skin review. Now, just to be clear, these are just our initial thoughts. Obviously, if you want to track long term results, you need to use a product consistently for much longer. However, we want to breakdown how we’re feeling about the products, the brand, and if we think you should spend the money.

What We Bought

We decided to purchase the face wash, toner, eye cream, and serum. We didn’t go for the scrub because of the ingredients. We don’t like to use manual scrubs and this one is walnut-based. You probably already heard about the controversy surrounding this when she first launched. Walnuts can be pretty harsh on your skin. They can cause microscopic tears and do more harm than good. That’s why we passed on that one. As far as the moisturizer, we didn’t pick that up because we just didn’t need another moisturizer. No other reason than that. It’s also important to note this line is cruelty-free, gluten-free, vegan, sulfate free, paraben free and dermatologist tested.

Foaming Face Wash // Price: $24.00

One of the main ingredients in this face wash is kiwi seed oil, which is full of Vitamins C & E. This helps hydrate and brighten skin. It also helps improve elasticity. One pump is more than enough to clean your face. There are no sulfates since it is coconut derived. We will say our face does feel clean without stripping our skin. However, we don’t like that is has a light fragrance. This can possibly irritate sensitive skin. Overall, this is a bit pricey for a basic face wash. It should probably be in the $15-$18 range. This isn’t going to change your life. Does it do the basic job? Yes, but we aren’t obsessed.

Vanilla Milk Toner // Price: $22.00

We really like the super minimal packaging of this toner and the entire line. The product itself smells good but again, that means it has a fragrance so sensitive skin beware. The toner is thick and almost resembles a thick milky consistency. It does absorb nicely into the skin. When you take a look at the ingredients, this toner is basically just glycerin and squalane, which helps hydrate skin. Once again, this toner is a basic in the skin care world.

Eye Cream // Price: $20.00

This eye cream is full of caffeine, green tea, pomegranate extract and vitamins C & E. When looking at this list, these are all basic skin care ingredients. The package claims to brighten, hydrate and reduce puffiness. It is true that caffeine will help with this but we didn’t see any major changes. However, it’s hard to see a big difference in a short period of time. When it comes to consistency, it is very thick. It definitely takes a few seconds to absorb. Also, it’s suggested to use the built-in applicator but we aren’t big fans. It slightly pulls at your skin and that’s a big no-no for your eyes. Pulling can cause premature wrinkles and fine lines. It’s also tinted so it will probably help hide dark circles a bit. It does have a matte feeling, which is nice. Mike added a little bit of the eye cream around his orbital area and did notice some increased sensitivity (burning), but no redness. When it comes to size and price, it’s a good deal. You get a decent amount of product for the price. Overall, this is another basic eye cream, nothing special.

Vitamin C Serum // Price: $28.00

The (obvious) main ingredient in this serum is Vitamin C. This vitamin is an antioxidant and helps brighten. This serum also has Camellia Oleifera Leaf, which is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. The bottle is only 0.7 ounces. That seems a bit pricey for $28.00. We are used to serums being above 1 ounce at this price point. However, it does have a nice texture and absorbs nicely into your skin. We are questioning the exact percentage of Vitamin C that can actually be in this serum for this price. Overall, we would recommend this serum to someone new to skin care. It’s not going to change your life but is a good start.

Would We Purchase Again?

We would repurchase the face wash and toner. Though we did say these aren’t life-changing, they are still good products. The toner does a good job at hydrating and the face wash leaves us with clean, fresh skin.

Overall Thoughts

This is a basic skin care line. Is it bad? No. Are we jumping for joy? Also no. It’s a good line but isn’t going to change your skin. If you are looking for the basics, here you go. But don’t expect this to fix all of your problems. We definitely think the hype doesn’t match the product but it’s Kylie Jenner so what do you expect. Do we think you should spend your money? Only if you understand that you aren’t buying the holy grail of skin care products.

  • i think both of you were very sincere and did your due diligence before posting a review of kylie skin. i think it was mike who went on insta story before hand and kinda gave us a quick synopsis of each product you had purchase and his first impression… after watching the insta story i had the chance to try out the skin care line on my own.

    however when you end the blog post with “its kylie jenner so what did you expect” you minimize the value and authenticity of your review with your own preconceived notion of what you thought you were going to get with kylie skin. the sentence is both a question and a statement that you should have answered and cleared up. if the product is not good than say it, no sugar coating for the chance to be on the pr list. if the product is bad than say it is bad don’t justify your thoughts or knowledge because of the brands celebrity. be real. it was cheap to try to frame your lack luster findings in kylie skin with ~of course the “self-made billionaire” whose family is known to be “talentless” made a skin care line that is more visibility pleasing than actually useful or further advancing the skin care arena.

    but i enjoy reading the posts. and i agree with you both on the review.

    • Hi Sierra! Thanks so much for taking the time to read this post. Just a few notes in regards to your comment:
      When we ended the post with that statement, we were referring to the fact that there was going to be hype no matter what. Since she is a celebrity, people were going to immediately freak out no matter what she put out on the market. The statement had nothing to do with our review. We pride ourselves on always giving the most honest reviews. We have no desire to be on her pr list or anything like that. If we did, we would have only said good things and tagged her as much as possible — none of which we did. As you can see in the post, we gave our honest thoughts and that’s it. We appreciate your critiques but don’t agree that we cheapened anything down. Thanks again for reading!
