Kylie Jenner made headlines when she announced that she was launching her first-ever skincare line, Kylie Skin, but not for the reason you would expect.

Kylie Skin officially launched on May 22 with six new face products in its line-up, but it's the Walnut Face Scrub that's receiving backlash from the skincare community.

Critiques and dermatologists say that the scrub contains irritating ingredients that can cause some serious damage to the skin.

Kylie Skin Walnut Face Scrub ($22) 

The Kylie Skin Walnut Face Scrub is described as a "gentle yet effective face scrub" by the brand and is designed to "buff away dead skin cells to reveal a soft, radiant complexion." 

Jenner has credited the scrub with giving her skin its red carpet glow and revealed that it's a regularly used product in her skincare routine, but dermatologists warn that its formula will bring consumers more harm than good. 

"Walnut scrubs are not good for your skin," dermatologist Kavita Mariwalla, MD, tells POPSUGAR. "It's not the walnuts. It's the fact that the ground walnut shells can never be pulverized enough to make round edges. Hard walnut shells will create small microtears in the skin, which will ultimately alter your texture in a bad way."

Dr. Mariwalla also found fault with the brand's promotion of the product, which cites that the Walnut Face Scrub can be used daily if needed.

"In my opinion, this ingredient is too harsh for a face scrub and should absolutely not be used as frequently as it's being promoted," she continued. "It says on the website that [the Walnut Scrub] was dermatologist approved, and I've got to wonder if they used a board-certified derm or a nurse injector or someone else."

Stuck on which ingredients should be in your exfoliants? Dr. Mariwalla recommends opting for physical scrubs that contain non-irritating exfoliating agents like bamboo beads. She also says that chemical exfoliants are also a safe bet if you don't have sensitive skin.
