It’s no surprise that Kim Kardashian’s new skin care brand, Skkn by Kim, has generated buzz. The line is also under scrutiny due to its price tag of $630 for a nine-step routine consisting of a toner, exfoliator, hyaluronic acid serum, vitamin C8 serum, face cream, eye cream, oil drops and night oil.

Kardashian’s line may not be available in your nearest drugstore, but it is actually quite affordable compared to some other skin care brands.

Those interested and with deep enough pockets can check out beauty’s most expensive skin care routines. Prepare to spend. But everyone knows that the margins are colossal, and that the same factories manufacture the same product whether it is Farmasi or KKS. So think about it before spending thousands of dollars.
