There’s not a lot the world doesn’t know about Kim Kardashian. For several years now, every aspect of the reality TV star’s life, from her wedding to her famous derriere, has been up for public consumption. Or has it?
In an interview with Into The Gloss this week, Mrs Kardashian West revealed quite a secret: her beauty routine. It seems pretty tame in comparison to the other big scandals of her life, but it’s always a little bit pervy to find out exactly what famous women put on their faces.
You’d assume someone as wealthy as a Kardashian would be bathing in fresh caviar and washing her hair with Veuve Cliquot, but some of the items in Kim’s (very lengthy) regimen are surprisingly everyday. You might even own some of them already. Look at you – you’re basically Kim already! Well… minus the million-dollar wardrobe, that is.

Here are some of the things we’ve learned:
1. She uses makeup wipes
“I always need a makeup wipe,” the 34-year-old says. Join the club, lady. Her go-to wipe is… Neutrogena’s Make-Up Remover Cleansing Towelettes.
“They take off everything but really gently—even mascara! I used to just go on a flight, fall asleep in my makeup, and not care. Now I really wash it off—first with a wipe, and then I use the By Terry Pureté de Rose Refreshing Cleansing Gel,” she says.
2. Her signature scent is rose
“My fragrance right now is rose, and all of the scents in our Kardashian Beauty and Kardashian Beauty Hair lines are rose,” Kim tells Into The Gloss. We wonder if that was also her wedding fragrance of choice?
3. She has dry skin and psoriasis
If you also have dry skin, Kim’s choice moisturisers might interest you — although they might also burn a hole in your wallet. Her picks are Guerlain Orchidée Impériale The Rich Cream (which costs, um, approx $450), Natura Biss? C+C Vitamin Cream and Shakti Resculpting Body Cream (around $115 and $155 respectively. Ouch).
Not surprisingly, Kim likes to experiment with different products. “I’m always researching different products, and I always try so many different things. I don’t just stick to one face wash or moisturiser,” she says.
