Oh no, first Kimono And now this. Kim’s naming strategy really needs a boost… here’s a small sample of less responsive than charity Twitter:
“Kim’s SKKN ?? What happened to SKN by Laurie Harvey ??? One thing the Kardashians will do is take a black woman from Chile”
Kim Kardashian’s SKKN. SKN by Laurie Harvey? Someone needs to be fired from the marketing team. “
“Skn by Lori & Skkn by kim (literally Kim stole the brand name from a black esthetician and also copied it from Lori) Do celebrities realize they don’t all need skin care and makeup brands?”
“Why would Kim do a line called SKKN when Laurie Harvey has SKN. Whose brilliant idea was that? “
“Did Kim Kardashian really name her skin care after SKKN because Loriharve already took SKN ??”
“Why would Kim do a line called SKKN when Laurie Harvey has SKN. Who [sic] Was it a brilliant idea? “Someone else was surprised when another critic asked,” Did Kim Kardashian really name her skin care after SKKN because Loriharve already took SKN ?? “
“So Kim has just launched her own skin care brand. * Not surprisingly, the laziness in brand naming is to me. Laurie Harvey launched her skin care line a few months ago and named it ‘SKN by LH’ Kim added a K to it. ‘SKKN’ by Kim
Apparently, people weren’t happy that Kim’s brand name was a little too close to the comfort of Laurie’s brand! Unfortunately, matching the name doesn’t stop there.
Although the two women chose a completely different color palette – Kim chose a neutral tone while Laurie chose a brighter teal color – people think their packaging is the same. Each line comes in smooth cylindrical bottles and small round jars of different sizes. You can check it ch-ch- (below):
Hmmm … that might be an extension. Lorry products do not mix with rocks …
There are lots of differences, btw.
Kim’s SKKN contains nine refillable products, including cleansers, toners, exfoliators, hyaluronic acid serums, vitamin C serums, face creams, eye creams, oil drops and night oils. Its items include ingredients like niacinamide, glycolic and lactic acid, shea butter and squalene. Fans of the skin know that there are some simple things to look for in a skincare line!
Meanwhile, SKN by LH is a five-step line consisting of a cleanser, a toner, a vitamin C serum, an eye cream, and a niacinamide cream. The 25-year-old model said Enjoy When its brand was launched in October 2021:
“The three main ingredients in most of my products are Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid and Niacinamide because they have amazing benefits. They help with hyperpigmentation, dark spots and firmness – and only work very well together. “
Although people complained about the similarities between the two organizations, not everyone saw the problem! According to Page sixSources close to Kim have claimed that United States Patent and Trademark Office He did not notice any problems with Lori’s trademark during the application process. The Keep up with the Kardashians Alum started the process in December 2020 to file for the domain, then submitted a trademark application for SKKN in January 2021, and later in March 2021 submitted Kim’s trademark to SKKN. As the insider says:
“USPTO has asked LH to deny him the right to use the word ‘SKN’ except for the mark.”
However, it seems that Kim also faced similar obstacles with another brand over the name. As we mentioned earlier, his legal team was discontinued from the company in July 2021 Beauty Concept LLC After the owner Cindy Lunsford He was running the saloon under Skn + Name from 2018. But she applied for the trademark on Skkn + within days of submitting Kim’s papers for SKKN and two months after applying for makeup mogul SKKN.
Very random situation!
This is certainly not the first time that Kimi Kecks has had problems with her brand name. She had previously been criticized for cultural convenience when she initially used the name kimono – a traditional Japanese dress – for her shapewear brand. (They weren’t inspired by kimono, he just put the words “kim” and “mono” together.) After the response, he later changed his name. SKIMS. Honestly, it’s totally a much better, less confusing name.
It’s pretty obvious that Kim has trouble getting the name right when it comes to her brand occasionally, huh! What do you think about this, Perezcious reader? Do you agree that the two brands are very similar? Do you think Kim will change her name again? Comments Off words with your feedback!
