I am going to approach my first impressions of the Kylie Skin Vitamin C Serum ($28) I am deliberating in the basement of a sorority after a round during rush. Therefore, this post will be a pro-con-con-pro format.
Pro: I love the packaging. It’s feminine, minimalist and very substantial. Whether you love them or hate them, the Kardashian-Jenner clan are experts with aesthetics.
Con: The texture feels really greasy. It kind of reminds me of a watered down lotion. I definitely expected the formula to be better than this.
Con: It smells really weird. I had to wash it off the first few times I used it because I couldn’t stand the scent. It is this odd vegetative scent, kind of like the beginning notes of something going bad in the fridge. When I finally did leave it on, my husband asked “what I put on” because “it stinks”.
Pro: The price point isn’t exorbitant. However, I just expected more since Kylie could have access to any lab or panel of skincare experts that she wanted. I assumed this would be more ahead of the curve in terms of its formula but this felt a little cheap. Sadly, I think the price better reflects the beautiful packaging more so than the actual product.
Have you tried anything by Kylie Skin? What did you think?
