Give Me the Facts- Kylie Skin

June 3, 2019

I'm sure you all have probably seen or heard about Kylie Jenner's new skincare line, Kylie Skin, by now. And if you haven't, where have you been sis?

I recently posted the very first video of my "Give Me the Facts" series, which just so happens to be on the brand new Kylie Skin, skincare range. For those of you who may not know, my "Give Me the Facts" videos are intended to be part of a skincare series dedicated to taking a deep dive into luxury and affordable brands; where I sift through the marketing B.S. and separate pseudoscience from science, all to help you wisely invest your hard earned coins! And if that sounds like something you may be interested in keeping up with, then be sure to "Subscribe" to my blog or my Youtube channel to be notified when I upload the next video/post!

Since I already go into detail in the video, covering every product in the Kylie Skin line, I will simply link it down below. And for those only concerned with knowing more about select products, I will include time stamps as well (it is a pretty long video after all). :)



6:11 Explaining brand claims/meanings (Dermatologist Tested, Paraben-free, Gluten-free etc...)

27:09 Vitamin C Serum
34:41 Face Moisturizer

In the description box of my video, I made sure to include cheaper alternatives to the Kylie Skin range (even though for "luxury"/prestige skincare, her prices are on the lower end), as well as a list of my references (which I will also include the un-shortened version of, since I went overboard and hit a character limit in my description who knew there was even a character limit??), so just keep on scrolling for more...
