Since Kylie Jenner announced her new walnut face scrub, people have been calling her out over the quality and benefits of her new line.
The 21-year-old billionaire announced her new skin care line earlier this week including a face wash, toner, serum, moisturiser, and eye cream. Oh, and a face scrub that is sending Twitter nuts.
The walnut face scrub is causing much controversy amongst dermatologists and Twitter users, with many claiming that the walnut ingredient is too harsh on the skin. Many are also claiming that the walnut shells used in the scrub can tear the skin and leave marks.

Dermatologist Michelle Henry told the New York Post, “Those shells can really tear at the skin. If it’s coarse, it could cause a lot of damage.”
Meanwhile, Jenner says that the face scrub is gentle enough to use every day.
Well, the internet did its thing and the memes are giving us life.

One Irish supermarket noticed a strange similarity between the face scrub and pre-cooked sausages…

Another wrote that Kylie Jenner has “never seen these products before in her life and has clearly been told to flog them on the internet.”
Another wrote, “If you really believe that Kylie Jenner’s skin looks the way it does from using her new skincare line, then you deserve the consequences of a walnut face scrub.”

Serious tea is being spilt…
Why but the walnut scrub when you could go scrape your face against tree bark for the same effect
