Bethenny Frankel didn’t hold back when she reviewed Kim Kardashian’s new skincare line, Skkn by Kim, on TikTok.
The reality star, 51, had a laundry list of critical acclaim when she sampled two of the products, calling them “impractical at best” and “slightly overpriced.”
Frankel called the packaging of the egg-shaped eye cream ($75) “spherical,” saying, “I don’t understand because it doesn’t stack.”
She added: ‘I don’t have a round house or medicine cabinet. It doesn’t even have a flat bottom, so it’s basically like an egg.”
Frankel went on to compare the 41-year-old reality star’s ($55) product packaging to a Rubik’s Cube, calling the design a “Wet ‘n Wild” idea — referencing the well-known drugstore brand.
The former “housewife” tore at the size of the exfoliator, saying, “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 do you travel with it? It’s just not practical.”
In the two-minute critique, Frankel also asked, “Is it worth the money they are asking? Unlikely.”
One user thanked her for the honest review, writing in the comments section, “You just saved me money…I travel way too much.”
Another user said: “The circle looks like” [an] EOS lip balm packaging lololol”, to which Frankel replied: “Yeah, that’s what I thought.”
The “Big Shot with Bethenny” star ended up sharing some compliments from the Kardashian beauty line, calling the eye cream a “luxury product” with a “melted butter consistency.”
However, the Bravolebrity followed up on her compliment by saying that the Kardashian eye cream “isn’t super rich.”
Overall, it seems Frankel wasn’t happy with the quality of the Kardashian line, saying, “For this price tag, I’d think it would be just like Chantecaille, Sisley rich,” she argued.
“It’s not Kardashian Empire. It may be richer than me, but it’s not Kardashian rich.”
Frankel concluded her scathing review by saying, “It’s a good quality product that’s probably a bit overpriced, but most of the beauty is overpriced.”
Skkn by Kim’s line includes nine products — a cleanser, toner, exfoliator, hyaluronic acid serum, vitamin C serum, face cream, eye cream, oil drops and night oil — launched on June 21.
