Testing Kylie Skin Foaming Face Wash and Vanilla Milk Toner - 2 Weeks Update

by - August 21, 2020


Hi, dolls!
After a small break, I'm coming back to you with another skincare review. This time, I will be reviewing two Kylie Skin products that I was able to get my hands on and test for 2 weeks. I will do a 4/8 week update also because that is how long you should test skincare products for. The two Kylie Skin products I decided to purchase from Douglas were the Foaming Face Wash and the Vanilla Milk Toner. Last week, I was finally allowed to travel to Europe to visit family back home and thanks to Douglas (which is available almost everywhere in Europe except UK) I could purchase the two without having to pay customs. If you're interested to read about my experience with these two products after using them fully for 2 weeks, let's get right into it!
PS. I have previously reviewed Kylie Skin Summer Collection which you can read HERE.


Kylie Skin was released in 2019 by Kylie Jenner with 7 essential products for your skincare routine - makeup wipes, cleanser, toner, eye cream, moisturiser, exfoliator and serum. I always wanted to try it out however, ordering from US to UK is a nightmare as you have to pay ridiculous amounts of customs and Kylie Skin doesn't even offer free international shipping after you spend a certain amount of money. I was super excited when Kylie Skin was launched across Europe in Douglas because I travel to Europe a lot to visit family back home, so I was finally able to grab it in store myself. When asking the store assistants about Kylie Skin I was told that it's a very basic skincare line which doesn't necessary target any skin issues and is aimed at teenagers and young adults. I went to Douglas with the intention of getting the Vanilla Milk Toner but it kept being sold out in store and each time I have asked about it, the store assistants kept offering other 'better' toners in their opinions that would do much better job for my skin than Kylie. I found this weird because it felt to me as if I'm being recommended to NOT buy Kylie Skin. However, as I really wanted to try her line, I ended up ordering the two online, I also wanted to try out the moisturiser but it was sold out both in store and online. 

Every Kylie Skin product is free of parabens, sulfates, and gluten. They're also all vegancruelty-free and dermatologist-tested.



Kylie Skin Foaming Face Wash is infused with ultra-nourishing kiwi seed oil, packed with Vitamin C and E to help maintain moisture and improve elasticity. This gentle formula cleanses skin by helping to remove dirt, oil and makeup for a fresh, bright complexion. It comes in 149 ml/5 fl oz. Use it in your morning and night skincare routine. Apply it to wet skin and gently massage in circular motions. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Avoid storing the product in direct light.

My Thoughts:
I wasn't really planning to get this foaming face wash as I love my Cetaphil cleanser, however I decided to get it and test it along with the Toner because the moisturiser was out of stock. I definitely don't regret buying it! You only need one pump of it (max two) to wash your entire face. While it doesn't take off strong, stubborn makeup like mascara, it works great as a second cleanser in your skincare routine. I use it every morning and night and I find it to leave my skin feeling super fresh and clean. For the two weeks that I have been testing it, my sensitive skin hasn't had any bad reaction to it. I was worried that its ingredients won't work great with my skin as it's super sensitive and the face wash is lightly fragranced but so far, I have only had positive experience with this product. I will definitely check in with you guys after 4/8 weeks of using this face wash to let you know my full experience with it!

Key Features:

  • Glycerin: A humectant that helps balance the moisture in your skin. If your skin is dry, it will draw in moisture and if your skin is oily, it will help decrease the oily appearance of your skin
  • Mild, gentle cleansing ingredients: Derived from coconut. Gentle & effective
  • Kiwi Seed Oil: An antioxidant. Kiwi seed oil is a rich source of Vitamin C & E that helps hydrate and brighten skin
  • Lightly Fragranced
Ingredients:
Water/Aqua/Eau, Potassium Cocoyl Glycinate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Potassium Cocoate, Glycerin, Hydroxyacetophenone, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Citric Acid, Polyquaternium-39, Fragrance (Parfum), Sodium Benzoate, Actinidia Chinensis (Kiwi) Seed Oil, Sodium Hyaluronate, Phenoxyethanol



Kylie Skin Vanilla Milk toner is a described as gentle, alcohol-free facial toner which helps to replenish the look and feel of your skin. It's formulated with avocado oil, kiwi seed oil and apple extract to help soothe, tone and restore natural hydration. This toner helps unclog, purify and minimise the appearance of pores. It comes in 236ml/8 fl oz. Use it in your morning and night skincare routine. After cleaning the skin with the foaming face wash, squeeze a small amount onto a cotton pad and sweep across skin.

My Thoughts:
This has to be the only Kylie Skin product that I was super excited to try and get from the beginning. I haven't really tried a milk toner before this one, so it definitely was a bit weird but I really did like using it. It feels more like a lightweight moisturiser rather than a traditional toner - it leaves my skin very hydrated. Although it's called Vanilla Milk toner, you can smell a mix of coconut and vanilla. As someone who has sensitive skin, using fragrance in my skincare products can be risky because it can very easily irritate my skin but it hasn't happened yet with this product, so fingers crossed it doesn't! This toner is also alcohol-free which is a big plus because applying alcohol straight onto your face can speed up the ageing progress which we want to avoid!

Final Thoughts
Before I can give my full review on these two Kylie Skin products, I want to carry on testing them for another 2 to 4 weeks. However, so far I have been having a good experience with them because my sensitive skin hasn't had any bad reaction to it. I would label Kylie Skin as a basic skincare line as it doesn't really target specific skincare concerns and is aimed more at everybody, mostly teenagers and young adults who are just starting their skincare routines. However, it doesn't make the products bad - it just means it doesn't do anything great for your skin as it doesn't target anything in particular. My skin has definitely been feeling much hydrated after using the Vanilla Milk toner and fresh after the Foaming Face Wash, so I am just excited to carry on testing these products for 2 to 4 weeks more to see real results. 

I hope you have enjoyed this post, let me know down in the comments which Kylie Skin product you would love to try out? Have you tried any yet?!
