Kim Kardashian: 'Botox Just Wasn't Necessary'

Kim Kardashian had a painful start to the new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, enduring a bruised face as a result of a televised Botox procedure. After emails and comments flooded her blog, the 29-year-old reality star decided to come clean about the incident. “On the show you saw I had some bruising around my eyes after the procedure, which is totally natural, but because I hadn’t looked into the side effects, I freaked out,” she writes on her website. “In no way was Dr. Kassabian a bad doctor… it wasn’t a botched job at all!!” That doesn’t, however, mean that she’ll be trying it again anytime soon. “I am not against botox, and I would never judge anyone else for getting any kind of surgical or non surgical procedure, but I think when you’re young there are other ways you can look after your skin….Botox just wasn’t necessary for me at this age.” The star points to FusionBeauty’s Illumifill, a product that she represents as a spokesperson, as her go-to instead.

Glad she realized that she never needed it. She’s gorgeous.

What about her lips? In all of the interviews her lips look a lot fuller.

This has got to be, by far, the best and PRETTIEST picture I’ve ever seen of Kim K. She looks GORGEOUS! so natural without all the makeup and shiny face she’s used to showing off! Kim K, you should do your make-up like this every day! you look BEAUTIFUL!

She should have stopped while she was ahead. She was already naturally beautiful and didn’t need any surgery. Now she looks like her mother’s twin.

She looks weird in this picture. Like Guilana Rancic. And why should KK stop w/ Botox? She’s already done extensive plastic surgery on her face and body.

i think it obviously sends a bad message being so young. i also think that kim kardashian is being obsessed with being “kim kardashian” and she should try to not be perfect and be a real person thats beauty. all these fake things don’t make you pretty they make you fake

Interesting to hear, and I think Kim trying Botox in her 20s was a learning experience, but she never needed it, she looked great, glad she realized it wasn’t necessary!

So she says she doesn’t need all of this stuff, but then she turns around and does a plug for something that she is a spokesperson for….that kind of stuff is just silly. I love the show and i think she is flawless, but that kind of stuff (the plug) just really rubs me the wrong way.
