As if Kendall Jenner wasn’t facing enough backlash surrounding the announcement of her partnership with Proactiv, skeptics are now calling her out over serious doubts that she has actually ever used the product in order to clear up acne.
After Kris Jenner described the promo commercial as a “brave and vulnerable announcement,” Twitter users were pretty upset with the two. Most users complained that the Jenners were making the situation more dramatic than it had to be, in order to sell a product.

I’m so proud of my darling @KendallJenner for being so brave and vulnerable. Seeing you share your most raw story in order to make a positive impact for so many people and help foster a positive dialogue is a testament to the incredible woman you’ve become. Make sure to watch Kendall’s Twitter on Sunday night to find out what I’m talking about and be prepared to be moved. #bethechange #shareyourstory #changetheconversation #proudmom #finallyasolution #authenticity #mydaughterinspiresme #getready
Now, internet users aren’t even convinced that the 23-year-old model uses Proactiv.
It wasn’t a shock to many that Kendall has suffered with acne, as she has actually discussed this struggle in the past. People are pointing out, however, that out of all the instances in which she discussed her skin issues, she never mentioned Proactiv as a part of her skin regimen.
In April 2017, she was a spokesperson for Estée Lauder. “I like to keep it pretty simple at night,” Kendall wrote on her app, listing Estée Lauder's Micro-Cleansing Balm and their Global Anti-Aging Cell Power Creme as her favorite products.
Twitter users are calling out the model, stating their disbelief that she actually has used Proactiv to clear up her skin.
honestly screw Kendall Jenner. we all know she didn’t use Proactiv to get rid of her acne. she’s from a billion dollar family. it’s kind of sick for her to use her platform and advertise a product that’s awful for your skin to people with acne. disappointed but not surprised ?♀️— halei ?

Some non-believers even took the matter seriously enough to do their own research.
sis on Khloe’s revenge body, Kendall’s dermatologist revealed what she did in order to cure her acne and it was not some proactive. lol she used this machine...and then the doctor did the same thing to one of the girls on revenge body and her acne was gone almost instantly https://t.co/SSKkLg98Un— biggest ooof (@localDuckBoi) January 7, 2019
One Twitter user is even giving out warnings, claiming that the product does not help your skin.
to any teenage girl considering getting proactiv just because Kendall Jenner is doing a campaign with them now, learn from the ones who have come before you and don’t use it unless you want your skin burned off— Fallon Mowles (@faligator) January 9, 2019
But even with all the hate, some fans came to Kendall's defense, and made some very good points about the truth of advertising.
Whether @KendallJenner is lying or not about using @Proactiv it doesn’t matter she was self conscious about it she founds a way to treat it, leave the girl be! We all know she’s making a mint promoting! People out there believe they will look like her in Adidas...that’s a lie— Rema Nora Patel (@rema87patel) January 9, 2019
We're just happy that Kendall is no longer struggling with confidence over issues relating to her skin.
