Bethenny Frankel shared an honest review on TikTok of Kim Kardashian’s latest skincare line, Skkn by Kim.
The 51-year-old reality star sampled two products and according to her, they were “impractical at best” and “somewhat overpriced.”
The egg-shaped eye cream for instance costs $75 and referred to the product’s packaging as “bulbous”, adding, “I don’t understand it, because it doesn’t stack.”
She added, “I don’t have a circular house or medicine cabinet. It doesn’t even have a flat bottom, so it’s effectively like an egg.”
Frankel also compared the 41-year-old SKIMS founder’s exfoliator packaging, which costs $55, to a Rubik’s cube. She also referred to the design as inspired by the famous drugstore brand, “Wet ‘n Wild.”
The reality star also criticized the exfoliator’s size. She said, “How are you going to travel with this?”
“You have to be a billionaire to use this product, because if you don’t have a private plane, how are you traveling with this? It’s just not practical.”
Frankel also asked, “Is it worth the money they’re charging? Unlikely.”
Her critique received positive responses, many wrote in the comment sections of her video. One user wrote, “You just saved me money…I travel way too much.”
Another commented, “The circle one looks like [an] EOS lip balm packaging lololol.” To this, Frankel replied by saying, “Yes I thought that.”
Though she had some negative thoughts about the products, the “Big Shot with Bethenny” star also complimented the beauty line. For instance, she described the eye cream as a “luxurious product” that has a “melted butter consistency.” However, she added that it “isn’t super rich.”
It seems that Frankel isn’t happy with the skincare line’s quality. According to her, “I would feel like for this price tag it would be like Chantecaille, Sisley rich.”
“It’s not Kardashian rich. It’s richer than I am, maybe, but it’s not Kardashian rich.”
She concluded her review by sharing, “It’s a good quality product that’s likely somewhat overpriced but most beauty is overpriced.”
Kim’s Skkn by Kim skincare line was launched on June 21. It consists of nine products- a cleanser, face cream, eye cream, exfoliator, oil drops, vitamin C serum, hyaluronic acid serum, toner, and night oil.
