Kim Kardashian's SKKN line slammed as 'overpriced' & 'abrasive' as fans vow to NEVER order 'cheap' products again | The Sun
KIM Kardashian has sparked outrage on social media over her less-than-impressive packaging for her new skincare products.
The 41-year-old model launched her new SKKN By Kim line on June 21, including a nine-step beauty routine.
Purchasers, however, weren't pleased with the products upon arrival as critics took to Twitter to express their thoughts.
One user tweeted: "So I bought the skkn by Kim refill of the moisturizer to be cheap lol and I totally didn’t realize that it wouldn’t come with a top.
"Once you open that b***h, it’s open. You definitely have to find something to store it in."
Another purchaser wasn't fond of the presentation either, writing: "The packaging looks cheap… just like ur bleached blonde hair. More importantly- what makes ur skin products so special?

A third buyer thought the product mirrored her ex-husband, Kanye West's creative vision, adding: "The whole brand aesthetic is yeezy, not to mention her price point is more than most luxury skincare."
A fourth chimed in with their review: "I’ve reviewed the new Kim Kardashian skincare line and it is truly overpriced crap. literally the second ingredient in her exfoliator is baking soda. cheap, abrasive, skin barrier destroying. the peptide eye cream has more maltodextrin in it than most peptides. buy something else."
And a fifth person harshly wrote: "@KimKardashian How about you raise your voice considering you are looking to be a lawyer and help people instead of marking your cheap products?"

According to the website, SKKN "was born out of Kim's dream to bridge the gap between the world's most renowned dermatological experts and people at home seeking high-quality skincare."
Skincare lovers can buy the products they love once or subscribe and get discounts on them.
The products include but are not limited to face cream, toner, eye cream, cleanser, exfoliator, and more.
SKKN is the rebranded line of KKW Beauty, which was Kim Kardashian West Beauty.
Seeing as Kim is no longer married to Kanye, 45, she wanted to rebrand the whole line and give it a new name.
While fans were excited about the new launch, they were a bit turned off by the products' outrageous prices following their release.
The "Complete Collection" of all nine products now sells for $575, down from the initial announced retail value of $673.
Due to the high prices, fans noticed a few details that they believed proved the line was a total flop.
One social media user pointed out that even though there was such high demand and excitement around it, none of the items sold-out after four hours.
"I wonder if she thought it was gonna sell out immediately," they wrote, adding a laughing emoji.
"Not with those prices," chimed in one fan.
"What part of…Cleanser: $43; 37 refill Toner: $45; $38 refill Exfoliator: $55; $47 refill Hyaloronic Acid Serum: $90; $77 refill Vitamin C8 Serum: $90; $77 refill Face VlCream: $85; $72 refill Eye Cream: $75; $64 refill Oil Drops: $95; $81 refill Night Oil: $95; $81 refill The Komplete Kollection: $575 (Retail Value $673)…do you not understand," joked one fan.
Another commented: "Kim have you seen gas prices lately?"
Anda third said: "It's just not affordable."
After realizing it didn't sell out, fans bashed the line and gave reasons as to why it didn't.
"The entire set doesn't make sense or appeal to me. The refills, pricing, and ingredients are off-putting IMO," said one fan.
"The refills really got me lol. Claiming sustainability but the refills look like they could be a standalone product and on top of the main packaging there are also covers for each product so the third layer of packaging. A swing and a miss," said another.
Another sign that the line was tanking is that some of the products were already discounted within less than a day.
Kim still celebrated the release in true Kardashian style as she shared clips from her lavish launch party last week.
Attendees sipped on cocktails made with her sister Kendall Jenner’s brand 818 Tequila and vitamin C ingredients, a nod to Kim’s new vitamin C serum product.
The SKKN boss herself wowed in a figure-hugging silver bandeau dress which she wore with her platinum hair tied back in a braided ponytail.
She was accompanied by her nine-year-old daughter North, who matched her mom’s futuristic look with a shiny silver coat and silver sunglasses.
Her three other children: Saint, six; Chicago, four; and Psalm, three, who she shares with Kanye, didn't appear to be in attendance.
In one room, a cinema-sized screen played the new promotional video for SKKN, which stars Kim.
In a short speech at the dinner, Kim told her guests: “I know we’re all so busy with our lives, but to come and to spend the night with me and my daughter celebrating the launch of SKKN really warms my heart.”
