I have to say I was interested to try out the Kylie Skin range but that doesn’t mean I had high expectations. When I discovered the range was launching in the UK, I thought it was a good idea to share my thoughts on what’s good and what’s probably worth skipping. Here’s what you need to know.
First of all, for the most part, this is a good basic skincare range that will be great for someone looking for hydrated, clean skin. There are actually a couple of products that I think are really nice, and loads of the products have Glycerin in, which is genuinely one of my favourite skincare ingredients. There’s also a lot of squalane which is another favourite moisturising ingredient.
What’s in the Kylie Skin collection?
I have five products from the range to show you. There are also some wipes in the collection, but I have a feeling that UK retailers won’t be taking those.
- Foaming Face Wash £26
- Walnut Face Scrub £24
- Vanilla Milk Toner £27
- Vitamin C Serum £29
- Face Moisturiser £27
Kylie Skin Foaming Face Wash
This is actually quite a nice light cleanse. It contains glycerin and uses coconut based surfactants for the foam, so it’s nice and gentle and won’t strip your skin. If you have a lot of makeup on, you’ll need to take that off first, but this will be a nice one for the shower.
The foam is lovely and creamy and it feels soft and gentle on the skin.
Kylie Skin Vitamin C Serum
This is a pleasant Vit C serum, that has some nice hydrating ingredients in. By the looks of it, the Vitamin C concentration isn’t high but it’s fine for the customer it’s aimed at for a nice antioxidant boost. If you have age-related pigmentation concerns then it most likely won’t cut the mustard, but then I very much doubt that fits the profile that the Kylie Skin brand has in mind.
The Best Skincare Products from Kylie Skin
I have given each of the products some basic testing and was pleasantly surprised by a few of them. So I thought it would be a good idea to highlight my favourite products from the range.
As I said, there are a few products that I actually really like, and that’s not just the packaging. I mean, it’s pink, which I have to confess is my favourite colour, and it’s also all a really nice soft touch texture. What’s not to love?
I really like the moisturiser. It is pretty rich and nicely hydrating and it makes a lovely base for makeup. It doesn’t address any particular skin issues but it contains a good amount of glycerin and sodium hyaluronate (an HA derivative) to keep skin nice moisturised and supple.
The texture is lovely – it sinks in nicely and other products, i.e. SPF and makeup, layer easily on top.
The packaging is lovely, with the airless, pump, and all round it’s a nice option for an effective moisturiser. Thumbs up!
This is another one I really like. It smooths out the eye area nicely, has a soft tint that’s very subtly instantly brightening (although nothing quite as dramatic as Murad Vita-C Eyes), and it works really well under makeup.
It’s a lovely eye cream with Vitamin C and a blend of Caffeine, Green Tea and Pomegranate extract. It’s the one product that I’d like to properly test, however, I can’t at the moment as I am testing another eye cream.
Vanilla Milk Toner
This is like an added extra that is my kind of product. You don’t really need it, but it adds a nice extra layer of hydration before your serum and moisturiser, and I always love an extra layer of hydration! This has squalane and avocado oil to moisturise and pamper.
Products to Avoid
As I said, I don’t think we are getting the wipes in the UK, but if we are, I’d suggest steering clear of those. This isn’t related to Kylie in particular, but wipes in general, as I am sure you’re aware.
Walnut Face Scrub
The other product to avoid, in my personal opinion, is the Walnut Face Scrub.
The description says that it uses ultra-fine walnut powder but it doesn’t feel that fine to me and I have only tested it on the back of my hand. Walnut pieces aren’t smooth, so I’d avoid this as an exfoliating agent.
