Kylie Jenner’s skincare line, Kylie Skin, is nearly sold out online despite some pretty substantial Twitter backlash. But a new video of Kylie washing her face is making people question her skincare knowledge once more.
When Jenner released the collection earlier this month, critics went after her for selling a walnut face scrub, which much of the skincare community has deemed far too harsh a physical exfoliant. To make matters worse, Kylie recommended using the scrub two to three times per week in a promotional video. Kylie, no!
On Thursday morning, the Twitter account for Kylie Skin posted a video of Jenner washing her face. She’s not using the walnut scrub in the video, thank god — she’s using a foaming face wash — but her cleansing method leaves a lot to be desired.
Kylie washes her face for about eight seconds. She barely puts cleanser on her forehead. And when she towels her face dry, streaks of what appears to be makeup are visible on the towel. Her face isn’t even totally clean.
Now, Skincare Twitter is roasting her all over again. It might seem petty, but a skincare influencer’s demonstrated expertise in her field matters, especially because these products aren’t cheap. (The foaming face wash in the video costs $24.) If Jenner can’t comfortably use her own product, it seems like she doesn’t trust what she’s selling — at least not enough to take off her own makeup with it.
