Kylie Jenner's brand-new skin care line Kylie Skin hasn't even officially dropped yet, and already it's facing criticism from many. But it's not because of the price tags or the packaging, instead, it's the ingredients that have fans concerned.
The one exfoliant of the brand, the Walnut Face Scrub, has social media users shaking their heads becasue the shells of the nut is known for being excessively harsh on the skin. Both aestheticians and at-home skin-care lovers are warning people before the brand's May 22 launch to leave the scrub alone.
Some are urging people to keep their coins.
"Who on her team advised her to put Walnut in a Face scrub? Might as well rub shrapnel on your face. It can cause micro tears in your skin causing more harm than good. Aye dios mio plz spend your money elsewhere not on this chick who’s pumped da house," asked someone who compared the harsh shells to shrapnel.
Micro-tears seem to be the biggest concern.
"Tbh I have not looked at all the ingredients but I can say that the face scrub with walnut is a NO!," writes one clearly educated commenter. "Nut husk are very abrasive to the skin and can cause micro tears and irritation depending on your skin type. If you want something that’s going to be a physical exfoliant but not abrasive then the Tatcha deep cleanser works amazing! It used luffa which is soft on the skin but still gets rid of any dead cells and clogged pores. But as far as the other products go I would be very cautious before purchasing and always look at the ingredients especially that moisturizer it looks like it could be a dimethicone mess."
