The star of the Kardashian family, Kim Kardashian, is printing loads of money: most of whose credit goes to her multi-million skin care products business. Recently, the 41-year-old billionaire released a new skincare collection, SKKN by Kim, which is an assemblage of high-end skincare, and a natural, elevated step in Kardashian’s minimalist-yet-aspirational offerings. And it seems the star is not ready to halt as she expanded her product empire into a new category: interior design.
But the question is, are fans happy with her continuous one-after-one launches of varied products? Everyone has the same thought: Is Kim Kardashian’s $630 skincare line worth it? Many people online, even experts, are suggesting that while the ingredients and formulas used in the making of the products are satisfactory, they are not worth the money for most consumers.

Behind the launch of the expensive line of skincare of Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian’s new venture comes less than a year after the announcement that KKW Beauty was no more, a move that devotees speculated was simply a step toward a rebranding. In June 2022, the reality show star announced her latest launch, SKKN, which promised an innovative at-home experience with a total of nine products including cleansers and face oils – all coming in neutral-toned, minimalist packaging.
The line was born of a desire to understand her own complexion: Kim Kardashian struggles with psoriasis, an immune-mediated skin condition that affects more than 7.5 million adults in the U.S. alone, and results in dry red patches on the face and body. SKKN, as claimed by her, is the result of years of working with and learning from dermatologists. But, as anticipated, one thing still was common among all her previous products: The high price point.

Fans and critics are not happy with the price tag of SKKN
Kim Kardashian’s skincare line promised nine luxurious products such as a cleaner, moisturizer, and toner, which add up to a combined price of $630. Even compared to other celebrity skin care lines, all nine SKKN products are considerably more expensive, just the hyaluronic acid serum and vitamin C oil cost $90 each. The beauty mogul justified this price tag as “best advice” and “best formulations” from experts like esthetician and celebrity facialist Joanna Czech, who helped with the formulations.
USA today reached out to experts like Dr. Camille Howard, a New York-based dermatologist, who has tried all nine of Kardashian’s products. Expensive skincare isn’t abnormal: a hyaluronic acid serum “can cost over $150,” and brands like Dr. Barbara Sturm and La Mer have been praised for their even more expensive yet high-quality effects. But from analyzing the formulas and ingredients of each item, experts say SKKN, for the most part, may not be worth the money for most consumers.
Kim Kardashian officially launched a Home Accessories Collection
Despite all the mixed reviews and suggestions for SKKN, the 41-year-old Kardashian revealed her next big project in September: a bathroom accessories line, designed perfectly for her fellow greige and monochrome disciples, which was dropped earlier this month. The line includes five concrete products—a vanity tray, a round container, a canister, a tissue box, and a wastebasket—that will fit right in alongside a collection of SKKN by Kim skincare products.

Kim Kardashian explained to Architectural Digest that she was inspired by natural, earthy elements, including concrete sculptures and “varying shades of stone.” But if you want your home to look like Kardashian’s, be prepared to pay a massive price: a whopping $355. Kardashian attempted to justify the price of her new home accessories line by saying the products are made of “hand-poured concrete,” a material she says can be beneficial for “mental wellness.” She has high hopes for this new bathroom accessories line project.
