Arizona-based dermatologist Dr. Brooke Jeffy reacted to Penelope Disick's beauty routine

A dermatologist has weighed in on the pricey and over-the-top beauty routine of Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick’s daughter Penelope after it went viral.

In the video, which was posted in January but has since resurfaced online, Penelope uses a range of skincare products from Drunk Elephant and Honest Beauty — which included a $72 moisturizer and a $68 face oil. But is it effective? 

According to Scottsdale, Arizona-based board-certified dermatologist Dr. Brooke Jeffy, who’s a teen skincare expert and founded the Generation Alpha skincare brand BTWN, it’s overkill, especially for an 11-year-old. 

Dr. Jeffy explained that Penelope doesn’t need such an expensive, intensive beauty routine, and that it could actually be incredibly harmful.

The video quickly went viral, amassing more than two million views, with plenty of people sharing their own opinions about the young Kardashian daughter’s skincare and beauty routine.  

‘I just died a little,’ the dermatologist, who regularly treats young patients, said at the beginning of the video. 

‘Why does this adorable 11-year-old need makeup and the skincare routine which is more complicated than mine?’

Dr. Jeffy’s hundreds of young patients with skin concerns caused by TikTok trends and unnecessary multi-step skincare regimens was the impetus to launch BTWN, an educational, two-step, simplified skincare line for children, tweens and teens. 

Dr. Jeffy captioned the video, ‘Tween skin deserves gentle care, not a pricey, extensive skincare routine!’

‘As a mom and derm, I’m here to spill the tea: harsh chemicals aren’t meant for those in-between years,’ the doctor continued.

She shared, ‘Drunk Elephant products may be fine adult skin but for kiddos, it is definitely not!’ before explaining, ‘This skincare line is packed with potent ingredients meant for adults, not young skin.’ 

In Penelope’s original video, she showed off her elaborate skincare routine, which included Drunk Elephant’s bronzing drops ($38), Honest Beauty moisturizer ($30) Drunk Elephant’s Intensive Hydration Serum ($55), Drunk Elephant’s Whipped Cream ($72), and Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Face Oil ($68). 

The trendy tween then applied Kosas concealer ($30) underneath her eyes with a pink beauty blender.

Penelope went on to use another TikTok favorite product, Charlotte Tilbury’s bronzing wand ($42) to contour her cheekbones, forehead and nose, before using an eyelash curler, which appeared to be from Shiseido ($24) and brushed up her eyebrows. 

The elementary school student finishes off her face with Dior blush ($40), a bit more contour, and the Dior lip glow oil ($40). 

Penelope's cousin North West is also a fan of expensive skincare products The glamorous cousins have both shared their beauty routines online

‘North West does the same thing too – it’s honestly so sad,’ one commenter wrote, referencing Penelope’s cousin, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s 10-year-old daughter

Commenters asked why it was a bad thing she had a beauty routine, as others explained it could be quite harmful for her young, sensitive skin

‘Why is make up always a bad thing? Make up is supposed to be for fun!’ one follower said, as another commenter replied, ‘The ingredients are for adult skin… they are powerful products that should not be used on [children’s] faces,’ citing the inclusion of the powerful anti-aging ingredient retinol as an example. 

One mom agreed, ‘Thank you! My daughter is 11 and has beautiful skin and she only uses a sensitive moisturizer. No need for all of that at such a young age.’ 

A commenter pointed out that Penelope isn’t the only member of the Kardashian family using an expensive, extensive skincare routine. 

‘North West does the same thing too – it’s honestly so sad,’ they wrote, referencing her cousin, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s 10-year-old daughter. 

‘Agreed she doesn’t need it but I’m sure she watches her mom and family and imitates that,’ another wrote.

Dr. Jeffy explained she's 'telling all the moms NOT to buy Drunk Elephant for their tweens,' because 'the products are not designed for young skin'

Dr. Jeffy explained she’s ‘telling all the moms NOT to buy Drunk Elephant for their tweens,’ because ‘the products are not designed for young skin.’ 

‘Kids using highly active products can experience chemical burns and premature acne,’ the dermatologist warned in her message. 

Moms in the comments agreed, with one saying, ‘The lady at drunk elephant kiosk wouldn’t sell it to my daughter because she said it’s not for her skin type,’ and another agreeing, ‘This is #1 on my 10yr old’s list and reading the ingredients had me shaking my head!’

One person joked, ‘Wait I can’t even afford Drunk Elephant for me.’ 

In another viral TikTok, Dr. Jeffy doubled down, ‘When it comes to younger skin, Drunk Elephant might not be the fit. Aggressive exfoliants and early retinol? Not the essentials.’
