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.
Teased last month and officially unveiled earlier in July, Fenty Skin went on sale on 31 July. It builds on Rihanna’s fantastic Fenty Beauty collection and has been created to appeal to all genders and skin types, having been tested on all tones.
Read on to learn more about the brand, the ingredients, the products and where to buy them in the UK.
As the brand explains on its site: “Inspired by her global lifestyle, Rihanna brings together ingredients from around the world and pairs them with skincare powerhouses, such as hyaluronic acid and niacinamide — for clinically proven results.”
The packaging uses recyclable materials and smart refillable packs. Plus, the range is said to smell “delicious.”
“This is skincare that works, that feels incredible, and that makes you feel good for using it. Get in on the new culture of skincare,” the site adds.
Sadly, at launch you can’t buy Fenty Skin in the UK – or at least not from a UK retailer. At the time of writing, it’s only available to buy from FentyBeauty.com.
It is possible to buy Fenty Skin from the UK and have it shipped in from the US, but this comes at a cost which we’ve detailed below.
Fenty Beauty recently launched in Boots stores so we’d expect the Fenty Skin Boots range to launch soon. However, we don’t have a date for this yet. We’ve contacted Boots for more information and will update this page once we know more.
There are four products in the Fenty Skin care range and each one are multi-purpose. These are as follows:
You can also buy a Fenty Skin Start’rs kit, which includes all three Fenty Skin products, plus a refill for the sunscreen.
The Fenty Skin price range starts at $25 and goes up to $75.
If you ship any of these products in from the US, you’ll need to pay shipping tax and duties, which are around $20 (£15) per order. This price can vary depending on the size of your order.
Also be aware that you may have to pay custom charges and these can exceed £20 – again, depending on what you order and how much it costs.
If you’re keen to get Fenty Skin in the UK sooner rather than later, it is possible but it’s not cheap!
Having had bad experiences in the past with harsh skincare – in which one product discoloured her skin and scared her from trying anything else for a long time – every product in the range focuses on clean formulas that are also vegan and gluten-free.
The main Fenty Skin ingredients – and their benefits – are:
