When it comes to celebrities launching their beauty lines, we’re all rolling our eyes. They’re usually unsuccessful (sorry, not sorry), and they tend to use their already established fan base to make sales. However, the beauty community seems to be super critical of any celeb trying to join the makeup or skincare game.

One celebrity stands out and impresses us with everything she does: the one and only, Riri. Rihanna not only amazed us with her beauty line, Fenty Beauty, she also dominated the industry when she recently dropped her skincare line, Fenty Skin. 

I was one of those people waiting impatiently to make my purchase while the site crashed more times than I can remember (I was eventually successful). Yes, this is how popular her launch was. With all the anticipation, marketing, and promotions, Rihanna kept us eager to see what her new line is all about. 

After opening up about her struggle to find a skincare routine that works for her, we all relate with Riri and were encouraged to see what she had come up with.

The Package

I received my beautifully packaged Fenty a few days later, and I gotta say, the product aesthetic really caught my eye. The colors, the way the bottles open and twist, and the refill option for the moisturizer/sunscreen really impressed me.

First of all, what stands out with Fenty Skin is that the line is for both men and women. Second, the line consists of three products:

You can also buy the Fenty Skin Start’RS (includes all 3 products) for only $75 ($88 value)

The Total Cleans’r Remove it All Cleanser is step 1 in your skincare routine. I love this cleanser because it is also a makeup remover. I’ve used it with and without makeup, when I wake up, and before I go to sleep; each time, I was very impressed. In fact, my skin usually dries up after I cleanse it, but this product left my skin smooth and happy.

Step 2 is the Fat Water Pore-Refining Toner Serum. Everytime I apply this serum, my skin feels so refreshed and clean. There’s something about it that just makes me feel like I’m glowing. I usually use it twice a day. 

The last and best step is the 2-in-1 moisturizer and sunscreen, my personal favorite. I am someone who loves being outdoors and being exposed to the sun. My skin always suffers from dehydration after a long day at the pool. So this moisturizer was a godsend to me by Riri! Not only does it smell good, but it also hydrates my skin so well and reduces pores. The best part is that it’s not greasy and is basically invisible.

The Bottom Line

When I saw people go crazy after finding out that Rihanna is launching her skincare line, I wasn’t sure what to expect. After all, the products sold out in just a few hours, and Rihanna is one of the biggest superstars around. Therefore, I almost expected that her line was overhyped. 

However, whether we think it’s her fame or not, we have to admit that Rihanna knows what she’s doing. From being eco-friendly to having amazing aesthetics, her skincare line is actually the perfect package and certainly worth a try. I also found her products to be very affordable and cost-effective. My skin feels amazing and fresh after Fenty Skin. I will definitely make it a staple for my own skincare routine and needs.
