Kim Kardashian-West may have expensive taste when it comes to clothes, cars, accessories and you know, nearly everything else, but turns out there is one area of her life where her budget and ours intersects.

Beauty.

In case you missed it, last week was Beauty Week on the reality TV star’s website (WHAT? You mean you didn’t have it marked on your calendar and alerts on your phone? Ahem.)

Sharing her skincare tips and recommendations, Kardashian-West emphasised the importance of exfoliation – a simple step that can make a big difference to your skin. In fact, she argued that it’s one of the most important anti-ageing steps (aside from sun protection of course) you should be doing in your 20s.

“You should exfoliate once per week. You can use a physical exfoliator, like a facial scrub, or a chemical exfoliator, like a glycolic peel that helps resurface skin’s texture and prevent acne,” she wrote.

While a chemical exfoliator may seem more intimidating, they can actually be less harsh on the skin. Making the switch from physical to chemical was the best decision I made for my skin last year.

This method of exfoliation uses chemicals – namely – acids to remove dead skin cells which smooths and brightens skin.

The best product to use according to the 37 year old? Nip + Fab’s Glycolic Fix Cleansing Pads.

Retailing for $29.99, the pads are soaked in exfoliating glycolic acid which helps slough off all the dead skin cells. They’re also packed with hyaluronic acid to moisturise and refresh skin, and blue daisy to calm it.

The Kardashian's favourite makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic is also a fan.

"Loving these glycolic pads! They exfoliate the skin to create the perfect base for makeup," he's said previously.

If you have particularly irritable skin, there is a sensitive version available too. You don't need water or anything else to use them, making them perfect for travel.

Even better? They're currently 40 per cent off at Priceline.

Excuse us, we'll take two.
