Fenty Skin has been available in the UK since the end of last year and as I mentioned in a post in January, I was really curious to try it out! However, I must admit that I love every lipstick Fenty comes out with, so I didn’t expect anything less from their skincare line.
To clarify, though, I found some of their products better than others. I bought one of their Fenty Skin Start’r Set from Boots after writing the post and have been trying them for almost two months, so let’s have a look at what the Fenty Skin kit is about.

Firstly, packaging. I am a complete sucker for great packaging! I studied product design in high school so I love to open them and see how they work and not. The product came in a 100% recyclable packing and products were kept inside three-layered cardboard.
Anyway, packaging aside, most of the products are recyclable and made with recyclable plastic. All the Fenty Skin products are cruelty-free and vegan, oil-free and won’t clog your pores and great for all kind of skin. But let’s have a closer look.

This cleanser is great to remove makeup, oil, dirt and pollution. Creamy cleanser to purify your pores and helps with the shine on your skin. Smells like cherries and coconut.
- Acerola (barbados cherry): rich in Vitamin C, helps brighten your skin;
- Green Tea: Rich in antioxidants, helps against pollution;
- Fig: rich in antioxidants;
- Ginkgo Biloba: helps control oil and clarify your skin;
- Quince: rich in minerals to help condition your skin.
This might have been the least I used. Don’t get me wrong, it does its job. I am just too lazy to use it. I am a micellar water kinda gal, which I know, it’s not good enough. Before we say anything, I know about the importance of double cleansing and mostly now that I am home, I should follow it.
So I used it just every other day, but it still helped my skin a lot, which also helped with my pores, but more on it later. In addition, the cleanser has a great cap that helps with quantity and ease of usage.
Fat water targets pores, improve the look of dark spots, brightens and fight shine on your skin.
The toner helps with pores, which are a huge issue of my skin. Controls oil, check another issue with my skin. The serum helps with dark spots. It’s a two in one toner serum – I was already impressed just by reading and most curious about this. In addition, a fragrant mixof figs and cherry adds to the experience.
- Niacinamide: helps look of dark spots and shininess of the skin;
- Acerola: Rich in vitamin C, helps brighten the skin;
- Australian lemon myrtle & witch hazel water: help reduce oil and refine pores;
- Cactus flower: hydrate your skin;
- Green tea & fig: rich in antioxidants, help against pollution;
- Japanese raisin tree helps detoxify.
Hands down my favourite product of the Fenty Skin set. Fat water was the holy grail to me. In addition, it was Rihanna’s favourite and I get why!
I always had issues with clogged pores and oily skin. However, when I pass my hand on my forehead in the middle of the day now, I don’t get oil on my hands (which used to happen, no matter what I used). Pores are clearer and less visible. In addition, it’s easy to apply it with your hands which is another positive to me.
It did the job and surpassed any expectations! I will surely buy it again, hands down!

Lightweight moisturiser, oil-free and helps with dehydration, discolouration and dark spots. Added sun protection and reduces the look of pores and brighten skin. Absorbs quickly and doesn’t feel greasy. It has a melon scent.
- Baobab: helps hydrating;
- Niacinamide: helps reduce the look of dark spots, fight shine;
- Kalahari melon: rich in antioxidants and vitamins, helps hydrate;
- Hyaluronic acid & aloe: hydrate,soothe and condition.
Honestly, I was very into this moisturiser because again, I do something wrong with my skincare. I rarely wear SPF – which, I know it’s bad, but working on it! Anyway, I liked the fact that it wasn’t sticky afterwards and absorbed quickly. In addition, it has a nice scent and don’t need to use a huge amount to feel your skin hydrated.
Something I loved about this, is that it has a refillable option for the larger size. You can order just the product and exchange the pumps inside as well as they do for the masks from Fenty Skin.

I still want to try the Instant Reset Overnight Recovery Gel Cream, so hopefully will get around it as well as with their Flash Nap Instant Revival Eye-Gel Cream. Therefore, there might be a second review, nothing assured!
In conclusion, I liked trying Fenty Skin and would recommend it. Most of all, I think Fat Water is a true must-try. The price might be higher than regular drugstore skincare, but Boots offers very often deals and discounts, which helps.
