Kylie Jenner new walnut face scrub is receiving backlash as some claim the shells can cause micro-tears in the skin.
Kylie Jenner is venturing into skincare, after announcing her Kylie Skin range, which includes moisturisers, eye creams and face washes.
However, a lot of her followers are dragging the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star as they believe her new walnut face scrub will wreck your skin.
The scrub - which is set for release on 22 May - consists of a "fine walnut powder" according to Kylie on Twitter, which is said to help gently exfoliate.
A lot of Kylie's followers have criticised her for using walnut powder, as it's believed that walnut shells (even powdered) can cause micro-tears in the skin, and ruin your skin barrier.
Kylie's 27.2 million Twitter followers then wrecked her choice to use walnuts, as they deem the product to be abrasive.
