KARDASHIAN fans have accused Kim’s brand-new skin-care line, SKKN, of being a “total FLOP.”
This accusation comes after some fans have spotted a tell-tale sign on her website.
Kim dropped SKKN By Kim at midnight on June 21 and debuted nine new products.
According to the website, SKKN “was born out of Kim’s dream to bridge the gap between the world’s most renowned dermatological experts and people at home seeking high-quality skincare.”
Skin-care lovers can buy the products they love one time or subscribe and gets discounts on products.
The products include but are not limited to face cream, toner, eye cream, cleanser, exfoliator, and more.
SKKN is the rebranded line of KKW Beauty, which was Kim Kardashian West Beauty.
Seeing as how Kim is no longer married to Kanye West, she wanted to rebrand the whole line and give it a new name.
While fans were excited about the new launch, they realized they couldn’t buy any products due to the outrageous prices they sold for.
The “Complete Collection” of all nine products now sells for $575, down from the initial announced retail value of $673.

Due to the high prices, fans noticed a few details that show the line is a “total flop.”
Fans on Reddit always catch the little details.
One user pointed out that even though there was such high demand and excitement around it, none of the items sold-out after four hours.
“I wonder if she thought it was gonna sell out immediately,” they wrote, adding a laughing emoji.
“Not with those prices,” chimed in one fan.
“What part of…Cleanser: $43; 37 refill Toner: $45; $38 refill Exfoliator: $55; $47 refill Hyaloronic Acid Serum: $90; $77 refill Vitamin C8 Serum: $90; $77 refill Face VlCream: $85; $72 refill Eye Cream: $75 ; $64 refill Oil Drops: $95; $81 refill Night Oil: $95; $81 refill The Komplete Kollection: $575 (Retail Value $673)…do you not understand,” joked one fan.
One Reddit user said, “Who have you seen gas prices lately?”
“It’s just not affordable,” wrote one user.
After realizing it didn’t sell out, fans bashed the line and gave reasons as to why it didn’t.
“The entire set doesn’t make sense or appeal to me. The refills, pricing, and ingredients are off-putting IMO,” said one fan.
“The refills really got me lol. Claiming sustainability but the refills look like they could be a standalone product and on top of the main packaging there are also covers for each product so the third layer of packaging. A swing and a miss,” said another.
Another sign that the line is flopping is that within less than a day, some of the products are already discounted.
A third reason the line could be not doing as well is that the products only ship to the United States.
Most celebrities, when releasing things have items shipped to numerous countries, but SKKN is a US-only company for now.
Fans from around the globe started shopping immediately as the line dropped.
However, the brand left out many global hotspots including Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Brazil, and India.
On the official SKKN Instagram page, angry would-be buyers vented their disappointment.
“Set my alarm for 2:00 am Australian time to purchase this bad boy to only find that you don’t ship to Australia,” one fan posted. “Wow, how disappointing!”
In Brazil, one fan begged: “I can’t buy SKKN because it doesn’t sell to Brazil. Who will send me as a gift?” and included several crying emojis.
Who clapped back at the critics who told her the prices were too high by saying that it was a “necessity” in order to get the “glow of a lifetime.”
As of right now, SKKN is only sold online and is not available in stores.
