The contents of celebrities’ elusive and exclusive bathroom vanities have long been a product of our imaginations—Kim Kardashian’s marble and minimalist abode is no different.
The reality star, entrepreneur, beauty mogul and now runway model has undoubtedly shaped the beauty landscape as we know it—pioneering makeup trends and even plastic surgery styles like the Brazilian Butt Lift (despite adamantly denying she’s ever received the treatment.)
So when it comes to the lotions, potions and elixirs the 41-year-old applies to her skin to keep her complexion as youthful as possible, your curiosity is certainly piqued.
Following the launch of her recent skincare line SKKN—a nine step beauty regime valued at over $575 that has already faced allegations of infringing on a trademark held by a Black-owned small business—you’d think that our questions (and inquisitiveness) answered.
However, it seems that Kim Kardashian does not use any SKKN products after all.
In a recent Instagram Story posted by Kim, the star can be seen posing in the mirror while promoting SKIMS’ new metallic swim collection inadvertently revealing the insides of her vanity.
As pointed out by TikTok user @careclarkbsn, Kim’s lack of her own skincare products in her vanity is telling—especially considering the plethora of drug store products in abundance.
While Kim may not be using her “innovative line of uncompromising skincare”, there’s a lot of cult favourites, unexpected pharmacy buys and even a French girl beauty must-have.
Below, behold Kim Kardashian’s tried-and-tested skincare products that have earned a top-shelf spot in her bathroom vanity.
Every Product In Kim Kardashian’s Skincare Routine
As seen in Care Clark’s TikTok video, Kim uses a range of products in her skincare routine, including the cult-favourite Cetaphil moisturising cream and a $200 serum.
Keep scrolling below for the full rundown of Kim Kardashian’s skincare routine.
1. Biologique Recherche Quintessential Serums
This cult French girl beauty must-have makes up not one, but three steps in Kim’s skincare routine. While it’s difficult to decipher which exact serum Kim uses (there’s over 20 to choose from), we’re guessing she uses the clarifying and toning serums based on their formulations.
This product is difficult to get your hands on, so we recommend the award-winning Skin Reset Serum from New Zealand beauty brand Emma Lewisham as an all-round alternative.

2. Cetaphil Moisturising Cream
Despite thinking Kim’s skincare routine would be filled to the brim with luxurious labels like Augustinus Bader and Dr. Barbara Sturm, it surprisingly includes everyday drugstore products. Case in point: the best-selling Cetaphil Moisturising Cream.

3. Farmacy Honeymoon Glow AHA Resurfacing Night Serum
Clean beauty brand Farmacy is a staple in US Sephora, but unfortunately this 14% AHA resurfacing night serum is unavailable in Australia. However, if you’re looking for a similar exfoliating serum, look no further than Sunday Riley’s Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment.

4. Neutrogena Night Calming Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes Wipes
Considering Kim’s idea of a ‘my skin but better’ makeup look involves a full glam team, it’s no wonder that she’s stock pilling these cheap but cheerful Neutrogena Cleaning Towelette Wipes. While we’ve made the sustainable switch to Conserving Beauty’s dissolving face wipes, this option is still a good choice if you’re in a pinch.

5. Olaplex No.3 Hair Perfector Treatment
As a new blonde, there’s no wonder that the Olaplex No.3 treatment is a mainstay in Kim’s bathroom vanity. Perfect for coloured hair, this salon-approved treatment claims to strengthen hair for a healthy shine.
Olaplex No.3 Hair Perfector Treatment, $54 at Sephora
6. Olaplex No.4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo
Any blonde will know that the best way to maintain results is by using one tried-and-tested haircare system. In Kim’s case, it’s Olaplex. This shampoo is reparative and moisturising and will leave locks oh-so-smooth.

7. Tangle Teezer Ultimate Finishing Hairbrush
When this hairbrush stepped on the scene, it was a game changer for those with thick or frizzy hair. This detangling and dry styling brush is perfect for achieving smooth and glossy hair. Plus, as any mum will know, it’s a hit with getting the super-tough knots out of your kid’s hair.

8. Secret pH Deodorant
Kim may reserve the organic and exclusive deodorants for her older sister Kourtney, as she’s proved she prefers the humble drug store roll-on. The Secret deodorant is a fan-favourite in the US, however we’re loving this clean (and divine smelling) option from Aesop.

9. Kim Kardashian 100ml Eau de Parfum
In a super sweet move, Kim’s scent of choice is her original Kim Kardashian Eau de Parfum. First released in the mid 2000s, this perfume is a little tricky to get your hands on these day. However, if you’re looking for something equally classic, you can’t go past the Chanel Coco Mademoiselle.
