Red alert! Kylie’s been busted using Banana Boat spray sunscreen instead of her own brand’s (much pricier) sun protectant. What gives, Kylie?
Read on to learn about Kylie’s most recent shocking betrayal of her own brand.
Kylie recently went to her mom, Kris Jenner’s vacation home in Palm Springs, California. There, she posted multiple steamy photos in which she wears a bikini and wears her hair long.
And she also told on herself by posting a series of snaps in which she’s CLEARLY using Banana Boat sunscreen.
Fans were quick to notice that something was amiss: Kylie peddles her own sunscreen. Why is she using a competitor’s product instead of her own, purportedly better option? The accusatory comments include:
“Girl that ain’t no Kylie skin sunscreen.”
“dont u make sunscreen though”
“So your sunscreen isn’t worthy like the cheap brands?”
“girl why [aren’t] you wearing Kylie skin sunscreen?????”
To the former comment, Kylie replied, “ugh i’m out of town and my mom is a hater and doesn’t have any here”
The revelation that Kylie doesn’t travel with her own products was a PR disaster. How can we trust any future post about her skin care regimes, detox teas, workout accessories, vitamins, supplements, brand favorites and, most importantly, her own products from the Kylie brand? What does it all mean?
No! She buys the cheap stuff like the rest of us, and that’s why she is one of the world’s youngest billionaires.
First of all, the sunscreen “oil” from Kylie’s skin care line, Kylie Skin, costs $32. Uh…did the youngest Jenner invent the world’s most effective sunscreen? Well, the description of the product reads,
“Our Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen Oil is an every day essential that helps protect skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays. This hydrating formula is filled with antioxidants and essential fatty acids like coconut oil and sunflower seed oil that help promote healthy looking skin and prolong moisture. Our non-messy, non-aerosol sprayer, makes for easy application, with our invisible formula gliding onto skin leaving zero white residue. No more streaky sunscreen, just glowing, hydrated, protected skin.”
So, sounds like it’s no different than the $5 sunscreen we all buy at the convenience store. And by “we all,” I also mean Kylie, because her self-implicating Instagram post revealed the truth. The Banana Boat brand’s Instagram account even commented three emojis on Kylie’s post: a sun, the sunglasses-wearing smiley face, and the praise hands.
Kylie didn’t respond.
