Fans Are Dragging Kylie Jenner For Her Skin Care Tutorial Fail

Oh, Kylie.

So, if you actually do keep up with the Kardashians (and if you're reading this, you apparently do, whether you like it or not), you might know that Kylie Jenner just launched Kylie Skin.

Kylie took to social media to show off how one of the products from her new skincare line works, and let me tell you: it was yikes dot com.

Kylie Skin launched in May.

And needless to say, it sold out immediately.

Anything Kylie does attracts a huge amount of fervor, so fans were dying to get their hands on the secrets behind Kylie's flawless complexion.

The reviews are out, but mostly from people on Kylie's PR list.

YouTubers like Patrick Starrr received press kit samples, and have left review videos on their channels. Of course, most of these reviews were pretty favorable. If I were on Kylie's PR list, I would definitely not be rocking the boat.

Some people were not fans right out of the gate.

Much of the criticism was focused around the scrub in the line containing crushed walnuts, which is incredibly bad for your skin.

It causes micro tears in your skin. I'm gonna go ahead and call that the opposite of caring for your skin.

Experts agree that nuts and nut shells are a no-go.

According to dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe, "Nuts or nut shells can create micro-tears in the skin, damaging the delicate barrier and triggering inflammation which can exacerbate skin conditions like acne, eczema, rosacea or even lead to premature aging."

But the hype might be overblown.

Walnut powder, which is found in Kylie Skin, is generally okay as long as it's extremely finely ground. But be careful! Dr. Bowe says, "One of the biggest skincare mistakes people make is to over-scrub or over-exfoliate their skin."

Kylie said her skincare line was her secret to a fresh face, but people didn't buy it.

Yikes. I'm sure Kylie does use her products, but it's a bit unfair to pretend that her massive wealth and privilege hasn't also played a part in how great her skin looks.

So you could say that things were not off to a great start.

Some even accused Kylie of stealing the packaging idea from another brand.

The millennial pink is definitely similar, but personally, I think that's where the similarities end. What do you guys think?

And then there was the birth of a meme, and the dragging began.

Kylie rolled onto the brand's Instagram page. She showed up to demonstrate how to use the foaming face wash, in case you've never washed your face before.

As you can see, things were already off to a bad start with the use of a filter on a skin care demonstration.

It got worse from there

Kylie washed her face for a few seconds before washing it off and drying her face with a towel.

I honestly do not know how anyone approved the posting of that video, because you can see the foundation she rubbed off on a towel.


The internet had things to say.

So let's just jump into it.

First of all, someone pointed out that she didn't wash her face for that long.

Typically, a 60-second fash wash is recommended. Hopefully Kylie usually sticks to that time frame, as a skincare line owner!

I mean...

She didn't wash her temples and parts of her forehead, and she had her hair down.

I think (hope) she knows how to wash her face...but it does make you wonder if she knows how to use her own products.

The towel quickly became a hot topic

This is such an innocent observation.

Like yeah, there is a lot of foundation on that towel! Did Kylie not think to use her Kylie branded makeup remover, which Kylie Skin also sells?

While Instagram went in, Twitter burned the whole video down.

The memes rolled in. The reaction images popped up.

The drags and research started to get numbers. Twitter spares no fool, and they left nothing behind when they decided to take on this video.

This has me WEAK.

Twitter, never change.

The sad part is that this is 100% correct. Kylie's dermatologist must be making bank at this point.

Hopefully one of the youngest billionaires in the world has a better everyday skincare routine!

Professionals weren't having it.

But you know what they did have? Memes. And they're a priceless currency.

Hopefully estheticians will review Kylie Skin and give us the real scoop on the product, so that we know if it's safe for our skin.

Seriously, what was with the filter?

Kylie has proven that she's pretty unafraid to post herself makeup-less, so why put a filter on this video?

What are you hiding, Kylie?

Probably a zit. That's usually what I'm hiding when I pull the filters out.

Kylie Foundation?

They did it. They figured it out.

This isn't an ad for Kylie Skin. It's secretly an ad for Kylie Cosmetics' new foundation range. *

*Absolutely nothing I just typed is factual.

The video didn't do much to sell the product.

Unlike regular skincare ads, where you know that models are demonstrating something they're paid to sell, Kylie claims she actually uses her products.

Be careful with your money, y'all! Do proper research, and wait for the reviews to come in. Who knows...Kylie's line might actually be good.

You know what? Tea.

Speaking of, when is Rihanna's skincare line dropping?

She's got music, fashion, and makeup covered, skincare is the next frontier for sure. I'm ready, Riri. My wallet is prepared for this venture.

The Kylie Skin set costs $125.

That includes face wash, face scrub, toner, vitamin c serum, face moisturizer, and eye cream. That's honestly not a bad price for all that product.

Not everything's been bad press, though.

Some people have already been using and loving her line, although skincare takes a while to really show results, so we have to take it with a grain of salt. Or, I guess, a grain of walnut powder.

Some people have been pointing that out.

Don't let your love for Kylie and the Kar-Jenners blind you to the real life science of skin care! You won't know how effective this line is for you until at least a month.

And at least the delivery time is impressive.

Even with the rush and sell-out at launch, people have been getting next-day delivery on their orders, which is better than some skincare lines can say.

Still. I'll wait for RiRi.
