Kylie Jenner accused of ‘selling rip off sanitiser and profiting from pandemic’

Kylie Jenner has been accused by fans of “profiting off the pandemic” after creating a new hand sanitizer product.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star added a lux version of the germ-killing spray to her Kylie Skin product range on Tuesday.

Kylie, 23, announced last month her skincare line was the coveted pandemic must-have.

Since then she has been regularly advertising her company on social media.

The sanitiser is advertised as keeping its users “safe and clean at all times".

The product is also marketed as being formulated with 80% alcohol, fast-drying, soothing and able to protect skin from dryness.

But many of the star's angry followers claimed the product which comes in a pretty pink bottle and retails at $7 (5.145) was a "rip off".

One wrote: "Kylie really made kylie skin hand sanitizer…………. like ? Let’s profit off a pandemic.

A second critic wrote: “Not Kylie capitalizing off hand sanitizer… period sis.

“Who the f**k wakes up and decides “i’m gonna buy a hand sanitizer from kylie jenner,” a third raged.

A fourth added: “Girl this is pathetic!”

The product, which retails at a much higher price than similar products, has not yet sold out like many of her previous new products.

The Kylie Skin range was released in May last year.

Opening up about her decision to make the move from cosmetics to skincare, she said: "Skincare and makeup go hand in hand and Kylie Skin was something I dreamt up soon after Kylie Cosmetics.

"I've been working on this for what feels like a lifetime so I can't believe it's finally here!

"Building my makeup line from the ground up has taught me a lot and I'm so blessed with that knowledge to apply to my brand new company!"

As part of her hyped skincare line, Kylie helped design a range of trendy cleansing products, such as facial washes and milk toner.

Plugging the ethos behind the brand on her website, she added: "I got the best of the best for you guys! Everything is cruelty free, vegan, gluten free, paraben and sulfate free and suitable for all skin types.

"Make sure you follow @kylieskin to stay updated. So much love went into this. It all starts with skin."
