I was lucky enough to be sent some Fenty Beauty products a few months ago, which I reviewed here, and I was also sent some Fenty skincare, which I was delighted about, as I had only tried the Body Butta Whipped Oil Body Cream previously (and loved it!). It takes longer to test skincare which is why it's taken me three months since receiving the products to share my thoughts, so let's get started!
Total Cleans'R Remove It All Cleanser: There is only one cleanser in the range, claiming to be suitable for all skin types, which will remove makeup, plus cleanse the skin. Generally, I like to use separate products - one to remove my makeup and another to cleanse my skin. This is a cream product, which is applied to dry skin, then is emulsified before rinsing. It has quite a strong scent - they describe it as cherry and coconut, but I think it's more like vanilla. I have tried using it to remove my makeup but I find that it's hard work when it comes to my liquid liner and lashings of mascara. I personally prefer it as a morning cleanse, and it doesn't leave my skin feeling stripped. That said, at this time of year, I prefer to use balms and oils. I think that in Spring, this would work perfectly for my skin. I think that most skin types would get along with this cleanser, but I would still suggest using a separate makeup remover if you like to wear a lot of mascara and liquid liner or a heavy/matte foundation. This tube is fully recyclable, as all of the brand's packaging is environmentally conscious.
Fat Water Pore-Refining Water Serum: I'm always sceptical of toner-serums, as serums are my favourite skincare product, and central to my skincare routine. I like the thick texture of this product, but would class it more as an essence, than a serum. It does feel hydrating, however with my dry skin, I require more than this product alone. It claims to reduce pigmentation and pore size, however I personally haven't noticed a difference in my pore size and, although I have been using it for a few months, it will take longer to notice a reduction in pigmentation. For those who have normal or oily-combination skin, this will be a hit, however for my dry skin, it simply isn't enough - a separate serum is needed. Again, the packaging is recyclable.
Instant Reset Overnight Recovery Gel-Cream: Generally, gel cream moisturisers don't suit my skin, but this is a beauty! It contains hyaluronic acid, Kalahari melon oil and Baobab, all of which hydrate the skin and nourish it. It find that when I apply this at night, my skin feels instantly comfortable, but the following morning, it looks plump and fresh. It isn't at all sticky, so it's the perfect product to apply at night. This jar is refillable, and recyclable.
Buff Ryder Exfoliating Body Scrub: What I love about this scrub is that it isn't too harsh, it doesn't strip the skin, yet it does leave it feeling very smooth. It contains both physical and enzymatic exfoliants (in the form of papaya and pineapple extracts). It also leaves it feeling nourished, as it contains shea butter, coconut oil and Barbados cherry. I love the scent, and how smooth my skin feels when I use this - once weekly will suffice, and it's perfect for preparing the skin for tan application. Alternatively, followed up with the body butter, skin would feel like silk! Again, this tube can be recycled.
Overall, there are some products that I love from the brand, and others that are just ok. I think that the brand will eventually branch out, to create products for different skin types, but this is a good starting point, as it won't offend or hurt any skin types! The body products are my favourite, without a doubt.
