Kim Kardashian recently launched her own skincare line, SKKN BY KIM, complete with a full nine-step routine and range of products. This launch comes shortly after launching her KKW Fragrance fragrance line and KKW Beauty beauty line, per the E! News. The skincare line was reportedly inspired by Kardashian’s battle with psoriasis after she struggled with her own skin and began researching dermatology and the science behind skincare.
In a press release, she explained, “Working with some of the best dermatologists and estheticians over the years has given me an incredible opportunity to learn from their expertise and I knew I had to share my insights” (via Glamour).
Though all nine products are priced over $600 when the set isn’t on sale, Kardashian stands by their pricing. In an interview with The New York Times, the SKKN founder insisted that pricing is the best she can do for the quality of the ingredients in all nine essential products. Skin care is a fast growing business and many other celebrities like Hailey Bieber have launched their own products and skin care lines as a result. And while Fans seem to love SKKN So far, Real Housewives star Bethenny Frankel hasn’t been impressed with Kardashian’s latest business venture, and she’s not holding back her opinion.
Bethenny Frankel is not a fan of SKKN BY KIM
Former ‘Real Housewives of New York’ star Bethenny Frankel has given TikTok a completely unfiltered look at Kim Kardashian’s new skincare line, SKKN, and it’s safe to say she’s not a fan. Calling some of the products “overpriced,” Frankel eventually came to a blunt conclusion, saying, “It’s not rich in Kardashian. It may be richer than me, but it’s not Kardashian rich” (via Page Six).
Frankel’s main complaint was the shape and size of the products, which are bulky and don’t stack, as she pointed out that they are difficult to transport or store in your bathroom. The caption for her TikTok even read, “And the award for the most awkward packaging goes to … #skkn.” She also argued that the products probably weren’t worth the money Kardashian was asking.
Frankel’s review caught the attention of many social media users as it garnered over 1 million views in just one day on TikTok alone. However, not everyone found the review helpful or funny. Fans have already called out Frankel and stepped up to Kardashian’s defense Twitter. A fan simply tweeted“Kim Kardashian has something Bethenny Frankel will never have — peace.” Frankel is known for her unfiltered TikTok videos and product reviews on social media, so the no-nonsense move wasn’t exactly a shocking move for the former housewife, but fans of Kim K might not be letting go of their diss anytime soon.
