It starts with the skin. Having a skin care routine is an obligation and Kylie Jenner recently launched Kylie Skin sharing with the world what she crafted and has been using on a daily basis on her own skin. Kylie Skin is vegan, cruelty-free, gluten free, paraben free, sulfate free and dermatologist tested. The line includes her foaming face wash, walnut face scrub, vanilla milk toner, face moisturizer, vitamin C serum, and eye cream.
Here is a breakdown of all the products:
Foaming Face Wash
The foaming face wash begins as the first step in Kylie’s skincare routine. The formula claims to cleanse the skin by helping it eradicate all the oils and dirt built up after a long day, and to give you a rejuvenated and brighter complexion. The foaming facial cleanser is derived from a mixture of cleansing ingredients such as coconut, Kiwi Seed Oil which provides Vitamin C and E to hydrate and brighten the skin, Glycerin which helps the skin retain moisture while also removing any appearance of oils, it is lightly fragranced and lastly Sodium Hyaluronate which keeps the skin plump and hydrated. The foaming face wash is to be applied while your face is wet; with just one pump you gently massage it into the skin in circular motions and rinse carefully with warm water.
Walnut Face Scrub
Next, let’s talk about the Walnut Face Scrub. The second step in her skin care routine consists of a scrub that is packed with anti-inflammatory ingredients that leaves your skin feeling smooth and radiant. The scrub created some controversy among consumers and the brand as walnuts have the tendency to cause micro-tears in the skin. However, the walnut face scrub was dermatologist tested and passed the Repeated Insult Patch Test which showed no signs of any concerns. The face scrub is fragrance free and curates a blend of ingredients such as Squalane which is an oil derived from olives that help strengthen and restore the skins moisture, Glycerin and Sodium Hyaluronate which is also present in the Foaming Face Wash and an amalgamation of fruit extracts, fine walnut powder and ginseng extract to help exfoliate and energize the skin. You can apply this scrub while your face is wet and gently massage in circular motions and rinse with warm water.
Vanilla Milk Toner
The Vanilla Milk Toner is a step that isn’t necessary, however, to achieve the results of skin with minimal or no pores and hydration you need this product! After the foaming facial cleanser and the walnut scrub, the next step in Kylie’s routine is the Vanilla Milk Toner. Formulated with apple fruit extract which is an antioxidant that improves the appearance of your skin, Squalane which was also in the scrub, it is lightly fragranced and contains avocado oil and apricot kernel oil which again restore hydration. The benefit of this toner is that it is alcohol-free. Generally toners have alcohol in them which can become abrasive on the skin; however, this provides a gentle, milky and hydrating feeling towards the skin. All you have to do is apply a small amount onto a cotton pad and gently wipe your face with it.
Vitamin C Serum
Kylie’s vitamin C serum’s purpose is to brighten and improve the overall health of your skin. It consists of vitamin C and camellia oleiferra leaf. While the ingredients in this product are limited as compared to the other ones, they both work together to help improve dull skin by revitalizing your skin and camellia oleiferra leaf is an anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory so the both brighten, improve and keep your skin from looking anything but fresh! All you need is a single pump in the morning and evening.
Face moisturizers sometimes have the tendency to leave your skin feeling greasy or oily and so people with oily skin opt for a gel-based facial moisturizer. However, Kylies face moisturizer claims to be suitable for all skin types and hydrates the skin without any greasiness or oiliness. The ingredients used in the face moisturizer are Shea butter, which helps moisturize the skin, glycerin, aloe which helps soothe the skin and banana leaf extract, oat bran extract and orange peel extract which work together to help the skin feel soft and smooth. A tip from Kylie would be to use this product under your makeup as a base for a perfectly hydrated, smooth and soft appearance.
Finally, you finish off with the eye cream. We all could use a few extra hours of sleep, however, when you know that isn’t possible the best alternative is an eye cream. Kylie’s eye cream consists of a revitalizing formula that includes caffeine, green tea extract and pomegranate extract that work together to keep the skin soft, smooth and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and puffiness. It also contains vitamin E and C which help hydrate the skin and reduce the appearance of dark circles and jojoba seed oil which helps condition the skin without providing a greasy and heavy feeling. The benefit about this product is that it is fragrance-free and the applicator is perfect to put right under your eyes and around them as well to apply the product as the skin under your eye needs to be handled with care.

This is day 4 of adding @kylieskin products to my skin care routine and I am obsessed. I have relatively good skin so, prior to this, my daily skin care routine was just coconut oil, SPF and vitamin E oil. But these products are gentle on my skin and I’m loving the natural glow!
