Kylie Jenner is gearing up for the launch of her new skincare line, but critics are already warning that her line’s walnut scrub, could be dangerous to users.
Skincare fans are pointing out that one of the scrub’s ingredients, fine walnut powder, is actually very bad for your skin, as it causes dry skin and even broken capillaries.
The Skin Care line titled “Kylie Skin” on Twitter already has over 1M followers, and many are responding to tweets the product line put out describing the walnut face scrub as the “secret” to Kylie’s fresh face.

However, Dr. Ross Perry, spoke to Yahoo News and explained the dangers of using Walnut shell powder to clean your face:
“Walnut shell powder has a reputation of being a relatively harsh exfoliator on the skin, and although exfoliating is a great way of getting rid of dead skin cells and unclogging pores, all skin types are different, therefore, harsh exfoliating ingredients can actually end up tearing the skin.”
Last year, a group of people tried to bring a class action suit against Unilever for the use of walnut shells in its St. Ives Apricot Scrub product, but a federal court ultimately tossed the claim. Are you buying Kylie’s Walnut Face Scrub?
