Speaking to LA Correspondent Ross King, Lorrain quipped: ‘What? It’s very complicated…’

Ross agreed and joked: ‘No, I’ll never master that one!’

Lorraine continued: “Can I just say, I don’t really understand putting things in things. Like, you’ve got a box of tissues – why do you need to put it in a thing?

‘It’s like a knitted dolly over a toilet roll, why? What is the point of when you’ve got a thing, putting it in another thing? I don’t get it? Am I wrong? Maybe I am? Who can say?’

Doubling down, Lorraine asked Ross: ‘And did you say that was $89 for that rubbish thing?’

To which Ross responded: ‘I said it was $89 for that thing. I didn’t say “rubbish”.’

And Lorraine concluded: ‘Well, it is rubbish. It’s mad!’

In the video, Kim demonstrates how to put tissues in the box, saying: ‘OK guys I am going to show you how to put the tissue in the tissue box just in case no one knows because the box does not fit inside’.

She showed the tissue box that was bought at a store and then presented the SKKN tissue box.

And then she got to work with her tutorial. 

‘You take the lid off,’ she added. ‘And you open this,’ she said as she breaks open the cardboard box of the tissue box she bought at the store.

She then reaches in and pulls out all the tissue which is in a round ball.

Open this: 'OK guys I am going to show you how to put the tissue in the tissue box just in case no one knows because the box does not fit inside,' said the pinup matter of factly as she talked in a slow, soothing manner

Then she stuffs the tissue in her SKKN box, adds the top and pulls out two pieces of tissue.

‘You put the lid on, and there you go, you just grab them,’ she said as she pulled out two issues, saying she was not going to ‘waste these.’

‘There you have it, there is the beautiful tissue holder.’

This comes after Kim got roasted for the unique design and high price point for SKKN home accessories, calling the collection: ‘Prisoncore,’ ‘Mausoleum chic, void of life’ with one saying that it was ‘giving Flintstones.’ 

The star’s home collection includes a round container, a vanity tray, a canister, a tissue box and a waste basket, matching her gray aesthetic she has for her SKKN by Kim skincare line she launched four months prior. 

The prices for each separate items ranges from $65 to $129, or purchased as a five piece bundle for $355.

Fans flocked to the comments of her Instagram post showcasing the items, calling the collection ‘prisoncore’ and ‘mausoleum chic.’

One said that it was ‘giving Flinstones,’ due to the stone-like material. 

Another called it  ‘very basic,’ while others said the same items can be found cheaper at multiple stores including Walmart, Home Goods and Target as well as Dollar Tree.

Other comments roasting the star said that the collection looked like it could be for a jail, writing ‘penitentiary chic,’ ‘looks like jail, ‘A prison cell looks more inviting,’ and ‘looks like it belongs in someone prison cell.’

‘$129 for a garbage can.. ma’am I can get one from the dollar store,’ wrote another, as another critic said it was giving ‘dollar tree’ energy.

One fan said that it reminded them of dorm room furniture and another said it was something you could find in the series Handmaid’s Tale or make it at home with clay.

Some criticized the high cost, primarily because of inflation leading to price increases at the grocery store.

‘Tone deaf as usual. She hasn’t purchased milk or bread or gas apparently.’

One person said: ‘Yes Kim give us nothing,’ referring to the very minimalistic design of the items.
