Kylie Jenner's walnut face scrub has already proven controversial with skincare enthusiasts who are worried about the product after Kylie says she uses it "two or three times a week".

Kylie Jenner has announced an expansion of her hugely successful beauty empire. The 21 year-old reality star announced this week that she was adding skincare to her brand and did so with a video about her upcoming exfoliating walnut face scrub.

Kylie Cosmetics has expanded to include Kylie Skin, which launches on May 22. It will include products like moisturiser and serum, but it's the walnut scrub that is being heavily dragged on social media.

In the ultra sleek promo video, Kylie explains that her walnut scrub is "gentle enough to use every day" and that she uses it two or three times a week.

Kylie also says that the scrub is not abrasive like other walnut scrubs and that it leaves her skin looking "super baby soft".

Well, reader, the internet was not convinced.

In fact people are calling out the scrub and the 21-year-old billionaire for advising people to use an exfoliating walnut scrub every day. People are arguing that a walnut scrub could potentially be harsh on the skin, despite Kylie Skin explaining that the ingredients include a "fine walnut powder- to help gently exfoliate".

Many pointed out that some exfoliants could lead to "micro tears" in the skin.

Folks also highlighted the fact that there was probably more to Kylie's beauty routine other than a walnut face scrub.

And, of course, there were St. Ives comparisons.

Skin care nerds undoubtedly have their thoughts about the launch of Kylie Skin and the products included in the range. All we can say is... do your research before trying out anything new on your skin!

What do you guys think? Will you being trying the Kylie Skin walnut scrub when it becomes available on May 22?
