Kylie Jenner Posted A Troll Review Of Her Skincare Line Thinking It Was Legit

Kylie Jenner and her new skincare line Kylie Skin is all anyone in the beauty community can talk about.

But truly, who could blame us? Never have a couple of bottles of walnut face scrub and foaming face wash caused such mass hysteria!

Kylie Skin launched in May.

It sold out, like, immediately, just like everything else Kylie and the other Kar-Jenner clan members release. Fans were dying to get their hands on the secret to Kylie's flawless complexion.

There was some immediate controversy surrounding one of her products.

Her walnut face scrub. This scrub is selling for $22, which honestly isn't bad for skincare products, but the controversy stems from the ingredients.

Load Comments

Most dermatologists agree that harsh scrubs are NOT good for your skin.

Instargam | @kylieskin

The walnut scrub, as you could probably guess, contains crushed walnuts, which are not good for your skin and can cause microtears when you use them.

But people may have overreacted.

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

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.

The controversies weren't over, though.

Kylie recently uploaded a video of her skincare routine that got the Internet going, and probably not in the way she intended when she clicked 'post.'

Load Comments

Kylie is just finally getting over the scandal of this absolutely insane face washing video.

You remember the face washing video. The now INFAMOUS video where Kylie washes her face for like two seconds with her hair down and then towel dries her face only to reveal so much foundation still on her skin and the towel!

To add fuel to the fire, YouTube sensation and makeup mogul Jeffree Star reviewed Kylie Skin a few days ago.

Jeffree claimed the skin products left his skin feeling "basic" which is truly... the ultimate insult.

Shane Dawson was also not impressed.

Shane, who has sensitive skin, said the products led to a burning sensation on his face. There have been rumors that the products contain fragrances, which are not good for sensitive skin.

To counteract the negativity, Kylie has been posting tons of positive reviews to her social media.

Which honestly totally makes sense because why wouldn't you keep all your press positive???

Load Comments

And with the Kylie Skin Instagram page amassing over 1.5 million followers, the positive reviews go a long way.

That being said, we can't always have nice things and therefore something was bound to go wrong here!

Yesterday, Kylie was posting testimonials from Twitter onto her Instagram story as she's been doing recently and posted one by Twitter user "Anal Wintour" (lol).

Instagram | @kyliejenner

Seems cute and legit, right?

Load Comments

WELL, APPARENTLY NOT. Wintour posted the screenshot of Kylie's story and proceeded to announce she's never actually tried Kylie Skin.

Twiter | @PopSirens

"Kylie Jenner actually put me on her story EYEEEEEE-" she wrote.

Load Comments

WELL YA OF COURSE SHE DID CAUSE YOU LIED AND SAID YOU LIKED IT.

Youtube | Kylie Jenner

Kylie is gonna have to put a disclaimer from now on that fakers and scammers will not be tolerated.

Load Comments

Sis is really enjoying her 15 minutes of fame though.

PLS SOMEONE CALL THE SKIN POLICE AND TELL KYLIE IT'S ALL A LIE!

Load Comments

I mean... it is kinda funny, lol. BUT IT'S NOT NICE!

Instagram | @kylieskin

Will you be trying Kylie Skin? Or is this too much controversy for you? Let us know!

Load Comments

Some people have also been accusing Kylie of knowingly posting fake reviews.

Giphy

On one of her Instagram post's that features a customer's first impressions, one user, jagjr82, had something interesting to say. They wrote, "UPDATE! So LET ME SAY IT AGAIN since my first two comments got deleted: DO NOT BELIEVE THE FAKE HYPE."

Load Comments

They said one of the shared posts was from a fake account.

Giphy

"The okaygracem account was a #faketwitter that followed 13 people, had 9 followers, and was created on May 25th. As of this morning, the account no longer exists. Suspicious much?"

Load Comments

They pointed out the sketchiness of the situation.

Instagram | @kylieskin

"Kylie has millions of dollars that she can devote to first-class marketing, but her “reviews” aren’t even real, which is pretty disappointing."

Load Comments

They, and lots of other fans, were disappointed.

Instagram | @kyliejenner

"If the products are that good, let them speak for themselves without resorting to desperate tactics like #sockpuppetmarketing. I’m wishing her the best, but I just can’t get behind someone who runs their business this way."

Load Comments

People were also suspicious of the skin care reviews that arrived so quickly after the product's release.

Giphy

One Instagram user, shaynerrlee, wrote, "Can’t really rely on reviews when the product has only been used for like 2 days."

Load Comments

People were pointing out that more accurate reviews would come later.

Instagram | @kyliejenner

"Lol I’ll check out reviews after a solid month of daily use. Nobody knows how a product truly affects their skin after two uses."

Load Comments

Aside from immediate reactions, like a burning sensation on the skin, there's not much to be seen after one use.

Instagram | @kyliejenner

Instagram user msstealyourheart agreed with this idea, saying, "To everyone saying it’s worked for their skin or hasn’t you can’t fully try a product with accurate results for less then a month. Anything you do to your face takes at least a month to show up on skin."
