Can you imagine Kim Kardashian with wrinkles? Pretty difficult, right? If you were to assume that she uses a slew of legit anti-aging products—and also that said anti-aging products are crazy expensive—well, you’d be right. In a recent post on her website, Kardashian offered up the full scope of her routine, prompting readers to “shop the hydrating masks, anti-aging creams, brightening serums, and face oils that are part of my beauty regimen!” The only problem with that? It costs a grand total of $1,511. So we took it upon ourselves to track down similarly awesome products with far more modest price tags.
Kardashian suggests: Caudalie Premier Cru The Elixir, $99. This is a mix between a dry oil and an serum. Allure suggests: 40 Carrots Carrot + C Vitamin Serum, $13. This drugstore pick contains both vitamin C and retinol.
Kardashian suggests: By Terry Baume de Rose, $60. This is a “repairing balm” that hydrates and provides anti-aging benefits.Allure suggests: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream for Extra Dry Skin, $17. This gel-cream quenches your skin with a high dose of hyaluronic acid (a super anti-aging ingredient).
Kardashian suggests: Tatcha Camellia Beauty Oil, $95. Licorice root extract and green tea in this formula help to calm and protect skin.Allure suggests: Sonia Kashuk Radiant Boost Restorative Facial Oil, $16. It’s as lightweight as pricier oils, and the blend of hydrating essential oils (sweet almond, sesame, evening primrose seed, camelina) smells amazing. It also contains retinol for wrinkle-fighting benefits.
Kardashian suggests: Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence, $85. This is a moisturizing toner spray that helps hydrate the skin for a dewy look. Allure suggests: Estée Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion, $58. This essence is full of moisturizers and peptides.
So according to this article Kim Kardashian’s posted a blurb on her website suggesting that her youthful look is the result of all those expensive products she claims to use. Ladies please don’t believe the hype. First of all, she is most likely getting paid to endorse those products so you have to question the validity of her suggestions and number two…she left a few facial enhancement procedures off of that list. Not that there is anything wrong with using these cosmetic enhancements but it irks me to no end when these celebrities and public figures try to pull the wool over their naive fans eyes by pretending that their ageless look is simply the result of plenty of sleep and a weekly facial mask when it is blatantly obvious that your face is pumped up with fillers and Botox.
