Rate Their Routine: Kourtney Kardashian

It’s the moment we have all been waiting for: the elusive Poosh.com is live. The eldest Kardashian sister has launched her new guide to living well, which covers everything from butt workouts to a routine for a night out. To coincide with the launch, Kourtney did a skincare and makeup routine video for Vogue.com that laid out her clean routine. We decided to delve into her ingredients on Rate Your Routine to see what the lowdown is on her products.

While we don’t know Kourtney’s skin type, we’re going to venture a guess and say she’s combination with no sensitivity and not acne-prone with an anti-aging goal. So let’s get into it.


Peach & Lily Power Calm Hydrating Cleanser

This cleanser claims to be good for all skin types, especially maturing and acne-prone skin. It addresses redness, dryness, and texture. It contains soothing ingredients like camellia, chamomile, and Centella.

What RYR says:

Right off the bat, Kourt has nailed this one. It matches her skin goals 100%! The hyaluronic acid in this cleanser keeps skin youthful and plump. Just one thing, this cleanser does contain propane, which is not super clean and can be an irritant. Kourt, if you’re reading this, we just wanted you to know.

Christy Kidd Face Wipes [these are currently only available to Christy Kidd’s clients, but Kourtney mentions they have tea tree oil in her Vogue video]

Since we don’t have the exact ingredients for this one, we’ll just tell you a bit about tea tree oil in general. It’s a great anti-inflammatory product, so it’s no wonder it is used in many acne-fighting products. It is important that you don’t apply tea tree oil directly to skin as it can be sensitizing, so it should be mixed with other ingredients or oils to dilute it.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir

This spritz claims to reduce dullness and tighten pores. (We already know that’s not true because we wrote a pore exposé)

What RYR says:

This doesn’t really do anything for Kourtney’s skin goals. This is really just a supplemental product with no real benefits. It also has some essential oils in it like limonene that can be sensitizing. Might we suggest a toning spray with some active ingredients?

Dr. Sturm Hyaluronic Acid

This serum claims to create a more radiant complexion that diminishes dullness and wrinkles.

What RYR says:

Again, nail on the head here. Hyaluronic is an anti-aging hero. It’s moisturizing and replenishes the skin’s natural plumpness. This product is clean which is very important to Kourtney. Go Barbara Sturm and go Kourt.

Pai Rosehip Oil

This oil claims to reduce fine lines and reverse damage, soothe dry skin and boost radiance.

What RYR says:

Yes, rosehip! It’s an ultra-moisturizing oil that meets Kourtney’s skin goal and type. It has fatty acids that boost hydration and keep skin supple.

Sun Protection:

EltaMD Sunscreen

This cult favorite chemical sunscreen claims to provide non-allergenic UVA and UVB protection with hyaluronic acid (we’re sensing a theme here, Miss Kardashian!) to maintain moisture.

What RYR says:

Chemical sunscreens get a bad rap but they’re really just physical sunscreens with minerals that literally BLOCK rays with zinc and titanium. This one is a good fit for Kourtney’s skin goals and her skin type because of the hyaluronic acid and because it’s, well, sunscreen and everyone up in this bitch should wear sunscreen. Even multi-millionaires! It prevents aging and sun damage. In her video on Vogue.com, Kourtney also applies this to the back of her hands which is amazing because hands are one of the first of your body parts that shows aging. Keep them sun spots at bay, girl!

Root Science Detox Mask mixed with honey (that we can only assume is Manuka)

This is a clay powder that you mix with water (or in Kourtney’s case, honey) that’s recommended for oily, acne-prone skin. It claims to reduce redness, clear pores and even skin texture.

What RYR says:

While it’s not clear whether it’s right for her skin type (to be transparent, we’re working on updating RYR, so not all products will be in our database right now, but they will!), it’s a clean product, which we know she loves, so way to stick to your values on this one. It’s also good for most skin types to do a clay mask every now and then to purge pores and refresh your skin. The fact that she uses honey is a bonus too! It counteracts the dehydrating effects of clay and is antibacterial.
