Customers Claim Hailey Bieber's Rhode Skin Is Causing Them Breakouts And Allergic Reactions: "I've Never Had This Happen With A Skincare Product"

It's been almost a year since Hailey Bieber dropped her skincare line, Rhode. The model has become the poster child for the "clean girl" aesthetic, always showing off her dewy and clear skin on social media. More recently, however, she's become a hot topic alongside her husband, Justin Bieber, and his famous ex Selena Gomez.

It all started when Hailey and Kylie Jenner were accused of "shading" Selena on Instagram after she posted a photo of her eyebrows that she claimed she accidentally laminated "too much." Not too long after the singer's post, Kylie shared a close-up of her face on her Story with the caption, "this was an accident?", followed by a screenshot of her and Hailey's eyebrows. The incident caused an onslaught of social media users to dig into Hailey's past, fueling theories that she was a Jelena fan and worse – many were convinced she was copying Selena and used to "stalk" Justin Bieber.

Some of the biggest social media influencers and stars showed their allegiance to Selena after these allegations, including Jeffree Star. The makeup guru went on TikTok to review Hailey's products two days ago, and they all shockingly ended up in the garbage bin. Jeffree didn't actually test Rhode, though – but others did, and unfortunately for Mrs. Bieber, some of her customers are reporting bad side effects.

Let's take a look at some unhappy customers and listen to what they have to say.

@gourdlourd Says Beware of Rhode If You Have a Nut Allergy

A young woman with a nut allergy (@gourdlourd) says she got an allergic reaction from Rhode's lip peptide treatments, which caused her to get hives on her forehead and cheek. According to the TikToker, the packaging does not "explicitly say that there is tree nut oil in it." She shows her audience pictures of her face five minutes after allegedly putting the product on her lips. 

"There is no nut warning," she says, "and that is extremely concerning. So for my tree nut allergy or nut allergy people, do not get the peptide lip treatments. And Rhode, I'm waiting on my email from you back." 

@lanafrederick_ Shows a Before-and-After of Her Face

User @lanafrederick_ shares a picture of little bumps on her cheek, which she theorizes could be from Rhode skincare after using it for two months. Others in the comments say they had the same experience. A woman named Sydney writes, "Same lol." 

@skincarewithkerr Says She Found Mold on Rhode's Lip Treatments

@skincarewithkerr ordered the whole Rhode skincare line, and she says she actually really liked the lip treatment! But after a month of ordering, she finds black and brown flakes on the tip of the applicator on the lip treatment. When she looked inside the cap, she realized what it was: mold. "I've never had this happen with a skincare product," she adds. 

A Redditor Thinks Rhode May Have Broke Her Out 

A Redditor going by the username @shelbygracex posted a close-up of small bumps on her cheeks. She asked, "so i tried the peptide glazing fluid last night and woke up with tiny red bumps and then some turned into little white heads later in the day? is this an allergic reaction? am i using too many occlusives in my routine?"

Another user, @MaintenanceOk5227, responded in the comment section and says she broke out badly as well. "I broke out quite badly after using it as well..." she shares, "Seeing all the raving reviews I decided to still give it a try.. 2 days later I hadn’t broken out like that in years."

Is it possible Rhode products are causing breakouts? It's important to remember that everyone's skin reacts differently to different formulas, so all the blame shouldn't be placed on Hailey Bieber's skincare line.

Evie Magazine has contacted Rhode for comment.

Closing Thoughts

There are far too many celebrity skincare lines. Founders like Kate Somerville and Shani Darden are licensed estheticians, they are experts in the beauty and anti-aging field. Other celebrities may not have the same level of knowledge of ingredients and skin compared to licensed professionals. Let's be honest – skincare lines and perfumes are just easy cash grabs for high-profile individuals. Our best bet is to stick to tried-and-true products trusted by dermatologists and estheticians instead of listening to people with big names.
