Kylie Jenner is one of the biggest beauty moguls in the world. After being named the youngest self-made billionaire thanks to her makeup line, Kylie Cosmetics, Jenner entered the skin-care industry with her latest venture, Kylie Skin. But not all consumers are convinced.
On Wednesday, Jenner released a 35-second video in which she is seen washing her face with the $US24 foaming face wash, which is currently sold out. In less than 10 seconds, Jenner applies the product and rinses it off. She also wipes her skin with a white cloth, which appears to show that she was wearing foundation throughout the video.
The video led some people on social media to say that Jenner didn’t actually know how to properly use the products she sells.

People on social media had a lot to say about Jenner’s latest video
On Twitter, some people said they wouldn’t purchase skin-care products from the beauty-brand founder because she seemed to wash her face too quickly in a video that’s meant to be promotional.
She didn’t even rub on her face long enough for it to make a difference. I really hope people think before they invest in these products.

Others said Jenner’s video suggests that she doesn’t actually use the Kylie Skin brand regularly.
This just proves that Kylie did no type of research and doesn’t know what she’s doing at all, not even caring she might be damaging her fans faces with horrible advice

Shouldnt you wash your face for 1-2 minutes?

Others pointed out that Jenner’s video used a filter, which may have blurred what her skin actually looked like before and after using the face wash.
Mam, the filter defeats the purpose of us seeing whatever effects your product has done to your skin…

People were also quick to notice that foundation seemed to transfer from Jenner’s face to the white towel she used to dry her skin.
The foundation ????????????????????????

According to dermatologists, Jenner broke 2 rules that are key to washing your face properly
As INSIDER has previously noted, removing your makeup before washing your face is a key step to achieving clear skin. If you don’t double cleanse, you risk clogging your pores and creating acne, HuffPost pointed out.
Sonam Yadav, a dermatologist in New Delhi, previously told INSIDER that skin-care products could be ineffective if rinsed away too quickly. Specifically, she advised people to massage face products onto damp skin using gentle circular motions.
“Especially do allow 30 to 60 seconds before washing off to allow the medicated product to work,” she told us.
Jenner was recently criticised for including a walnut face scrub in her Kylie Skin line
On May 14, Jenner announced the launch of Kylie Skin, which includes a $US22 walnut face scrub. Many fans criticised the product, as crushed walnut shells can create micro-tears in the skin.

In light of all this Kylie nonsense with this walnut scrub, here is why you don’t use walnut scrubs. Walnut shells are ground up and you rub them against your skin. But watch the texture of the. Compare it to whole nutmeg. pic.twitter.com/1K09kASYNF

Regardless, the product appears to have been popular with customers and is currently sold out.
Representatives for Kylie Skin did not immediately reply to INSIDER’s request for comment.
