Fenty Skin UK: Everything you need to know about the iconic Rihanna skincare line

19th May 2023 | Author: Victoria Woollaston-Webber

The Fenty Skin UK range is now available in Boots, Sephora and Harvey Nichols. Here’s everything you need to know about Rihanna’s skincare line 

Is there anything that Rihanna can’t do?

She’s a singer, dancer, producer, ambassador, model, makeup mogul and now she’s taking on the skincare market with the launch of Fenty Skin UK.

After being only available in the US and Europe, the full Fenty Skin UK range is now available at Boots, Sephora, and Harvey Nichols.

Read on to learn more about the brand, the ingredients, and the products, and get links to what we consider to be the best Fenty Skin UK products.

Fenty Skin UK

Each of the products in the Fenty Skin UK range has been designed to be “multi-tasking and uncomplicated.” Its Fat Water Toner Serum, for instance, helps both hydrate the skin and flood it with ingredients in the way a serum does, and it helps remove residue of cleanser and build-up to keep your pores clear and your skin bright.

What’s more, the entire range has been formulated to complement each other. You don’t have to worry about any ingredients or products not working well together, and they’ve been tested on all skin types and tones. Elsewhere, the formulas are vegan and gluten-free and the packaging is described as “Earth-conscious”, which means it uses recyclable materials and refills.

What began as a collection of just five products has since turned into a range of 18 skincare staples, from cleansers to toners, masks, moisturisers and body scrubs.

Below we’ve picked what we consider to be the best Fenty Skin UK products if you’re looking to try the brand for the first time. We’ve also listed why the Fenty Skin ingredients are so good here.

Best Fenty Skin UK products to get you started

  • Cleanser/makeup remover: Total Cleans’r Remove-It-All Cleanser
  • Toner/Serum: Fat Water Pore-Refining Toner Serum
  • Moisturiser/SPF: Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturiser SPF 30
  • Eye cream: Fenty Skin Flash Nap Eye Gel-Cream

Total Cleans’r Remove-It-All Cleanser 

£23 | Buy now

Fenty Skin UK cleanserFenty Skin

What is it?cleanser that doubles up as a makeup remover.

When mixed with water, it turns from a cream into a lather that helps lift dirt, oil, and makeup out of your pores and off your skin, without stripping it of its natural oils or leaving it feeling dry.

It also helps balance shine and it’s made with antioxidants that help keep the skin barrier intact.

Elsewhere, it has an oil-free formula that’s noncomedogenic, meaning it won’t clog pores.

This makes it well suited to oily skin types that are prone to breakouts, but in reality this cleanser helps dry, combo and sensitive skin too.

What’s more, this smells like cherries and coconut.

Fenty Skin Flash Nap Eye Gel-Cream and Massage Tool 

£38 | Buy now

What is it?  This is one of the more recent additions to the Fenty Skin UK lineup and combines an eye cream with a metal eye roller.

The eye-gel cream contains hyaluronic acid, green tea, Horse chestnut, and Persian silk tree to hydrate the super-thin skin around your eyes.

It also brightens dark circles, reduces puffiness and defends against environmental stressors.

Plus, because it’s a non-greasy gel, it cools the skin too.

The Flash Nap eye cream on its own costs £30, but you can also buy it as part of a bundle with an eye-roller tool (pictured) for £38.

Eye rollers help to gently massage eye creams and gels into the skin while the metal also cools, to reduce puffiness.

What’s notable about this particular eye-roller tool is its shape.

Most rollers are small roller balls that work fine but mean you have to roll them over a fair bit to cover your entire eye area. Fenty Skin’s tool is flatter and wider meaning you can cover a greater area, quicker and easier.

Fat Water Pore-refining Toner Serum

£29 | Buy now 

What is it? Another multipurpose miracle, this toner doubles up as a serum.

It gets its Fat Water name from the fact it’s slightly thicker in consistency than a standard liquid toner, but it’s more watery than traditional serums and isn’t quite as thick as a gel.

Since the end of 2022, we’ve been running a major group test of skincare products over on TikTok in search of the best moisturisers, best serums, best toners and more.

All of the products are ranked based on their price, their ingredients, how well they hydrate the skin and if they’re vegan and cruelty-free.

At the time of writing, this Fat Water Toner Serum has been on top for months.

It seems pricey but, per 30ml, it costs less than a fiver. Plus a little goes a long way and, because it doubles up as two products in one, you’re effectively saving money.

@victoria_woolly_web Are you kidding me!? 😧 We have a new winner in my hunt for the best moisturiser and serum. A few of you have asked for the Fat Water from @fentyskin but I didn’t expect it to perform like that. As usual, it was applied to freshly washed/damp skin. It was really hard to control how much I applied (because the design of the bottle is *not* the best) so I may repeat with different amounts to see if there’s a difference. This is vegan and cruelty-free and although it’s not cheap, it’s not the most expensive serum we’ve tested. @rihanna 👏 doesn’t 👏 miss 🥰 #mamabella #hydration #dryskin #hydratedskin #fenty #fentyskin #fentyface #rihanna #fatwater #fatwatertonerserum #fatwatertonerserum #bestserum #serums #bestserums #bestserumsforglowingskin #bestserumsofar ♬ CUFF IT – Beyoncé

It gets its power from a number of key ingredients:

  • Niacinamide – helps reduce the look of dark spots, even skin tone, and get rid of shine
  • Barbados cherry – brightens the appearance of skin.
  • Australian lemon myrtle & witch hazel water – helps reduce oil and refine pores
  • Cactus flower – helps hydrate

This toner serum is suitable for all skin types but is particularly great for oily skin. If you have dry skin, you may prefer the Fat Water Hydrating Milky Toner version.

Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturiser Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen 

£35 | Buy now

What is it? This moisturiser comes with SPF, meaning you don’t have to buy and apply two products when this one will do.

It’s also rare because few moisturisers come with such a high SPF.

Especially not at this price. In fact, such is the power of the SPF in this moisturiser, Fenty Skin calls it a sunscreen for face that moisturisers, rather than a moisturiser with SPF.

The sun protection comes from the use of a mineral sun filter called zinc oxide that helps protect against UVA and UVB sun damage.

Elsewhere, this moisturiser contains Kalahari Melon, which is full of vitamins and antioxidants, and niacinamide to fight shine and help with the appearance of dark spots and large pores. Then there’s hyaluronic acid, to draw moisture into the skin, and aloe vera to soothe and calm your complexion

You can also buy a refill for this moisturiser once you run out.

Fenty Skin Ingredients

  • Barbados cherry (acerola): Uses Vitamin C to help brighten the skin and even out skin tone

  • Fig: Rich in antioxidants
  • Quince: Infused with minerals to help condition the skin

  • Hyaluronic acid: Helps hydrate the skin
  • Aloe: Soothes and conditions
  • Baobab: Nutrient-rich superfruit for hydration
  • Australian lemon myrtle and witch hazel water: Reduces oil, refines pores and tackles acne and blemishes

Fenty Hair

If a fully inclusive beauty range and gender-neutral skincare line weren’t enough, Rihanna is rumoured to be working on the launch of a haircare collection called Fenty Hair.

These rumours stem from the fact her company – trading under the name Roraj Trade LLC – filed a trademark application for the phrase “Fenty Hair” with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

As the application explains, Fenty Hair will sell: “Non-medicated hair care preparations; Non-medicated dandruff shampoo; Hair styling preparations; Hair straightening preparations; Hair relaxing preparations; Hair waving preparations; Non-medicated hair restoration lotions; Hair bleaching preparations; Hair colouring preparations; Hair glitter.”

This covers a broad range of products, and there’s no guarantee that Fenty Hair will sell all of these products. In fact, only because a trademark application has been filed doesn’t guarantee the brand will launch. Brands often file such applications to make sure other people don’t claim it.

However, given that Rihanna isn’t already occupying this space, we’d say there’s a strong chance Fenty Hair will soon launch. What’s more, given her history of championing inclusivity and diversity, we’d expect Fenty Hair to offer something for all hair types, particularly natural hair.
