Product Review: Fenty Skin

Fenty Skin – Start’rs Full Size Bundle ($75)

I have been waiting on this drop ever since the launch of Fenty Beauty back in 2017. When I received an email from Fenty Beauty with the pre-order dates I added them to my calendar immediately! I did not want to miss this launch!

As you may know Rihanna is definitely a beauty and fashion icon known for her beautiful, glowy skin. Rihanna expanding Fenty Beauty, and adding a skincare line was very much anticipated.

There are many things that I love about Fenty Skin. For starters, all Fenty Skin products are 2-in-1’s. That means less products for your skincare routine! Also, the packaging is 🔥. The packaging has very soft tranquil colors, pretty to look at, and is recyclable. Fenty Skin products are:

Cruelty-Free . Vegan. Gluten-Free. Non-Comedogenic

Fenty Skin Routine

Step 1: Cleanse -Total Cleans’r (cleanser & makeup remover)

Step 2: Tone – Fat Water (toner & serum)

Step 3: Hydrate & Protect – (moisturizer & sunscreen)

Fenty Skin Total Cleans’r earned 4/5 Lips. Total Cleans’r is a cleanser that also doubles as a long wear makeup remover. Although this is a makeup remover and cleanser all in one I still prefer to use a makeup remover before cleansing just to be sure that I get everything. Total Cleans’r lathers up without the feeling of stripping or drying out your skin, and it also has a nice faint cherry scent.

Barbados’ Cherry – Loaded with Vitamin C and helps brighten skin.

Ginkgo Biloba – Helps to control oil & clarify skin.

Fenty Skin Fat Water A 2-in-1 toner/serum, Fenty Skin fat Water is my least favorite product in the skin line. I gave this product a 3/5 Lips because I didn’t experience any skin detoxing or pore refining from the Fat Water. However, it is a nice product to add after cleansing. Fat Water has a watery jelly texture that glides right on your skin and gives it an instant glow.

Japanese Raisin Tree – Helps to detoxify

Australian Lemon Myrtle & Witch Hazel Water – Helps to reduce oil and refine pores.

Fenty Skin Hydra Vizor is my favorite Fenty Skin product and I gave it 5/5 Lips. Hydra Vizor is a very smooth moisturizer/sunscreen 2-in-1. This hybrid is lightweight, blends right in, good for all skin tones, and includes SPF 30. Did I mention the yummy scent?

Kalahari melon – A wild watermelon that’s rich in antioxidants and vitamins; helps hydrate

 Niacinamide (a form of Vitamin B3): Helps reduce the look of dark spots, even skin tone, and fight excess shine

Bottom Line: Fenty Skin is a great skincare with a really simple routine, especially for someone who is new to skincare or might just want a quick everyday routine with minimal products. I love the cleanser and moisturizer, I’m not too crazy about the Fat Water but they all work great together and I would recommend.

Product Review: Drunk Elephant – T.L.C. Happi Scalp Scrub

Drunk Elephant – T.L.C. Happi Scalp Scrub ($36)

I have been spending a lot of extra time nursing my curls so I can finally make it to my #hairgoal which is waist-length. I know that keeping a clean, healthy scalp is a major key to having beautiful, healthy hair, so I decided to give this product a try.

Drunk Elephant T.L.C Happi Scalp Scrub contains a blend of moisturizing plant oils and hydration-boosting sweet almond extract that help to nourish your scalp. It also contains supercharged AHA/BHA acid blend that breaks down & dissolved dead skin cells breaking down product buildup.

I enjoyed this product, it made my hair feel so clean. This scrub earned 5/5 stars, it has some really awesome benefits; dissolves dead skin & product buildup, adds volume to hair, lightweight formula, and it can be used on your body. 

Bottom Line: This scrub is perfect someone who suffers from an itchy scalp or has any product buildup. It leaves your scalp squeaky clean, while keeping it nourished & balanced.

Product Review: Milk Makeup Blur Stick

Milk Makeup – Blur Stick($36)

Milk Makeup’s Blur Stick is the first product that I have tried from the Milk Makeup line and I must say that I am pleasantly surprised!  I’ve never been a big fan of primers in general, but as you know I love to try any new beauty products.

I gave this 5/5 Lips because this primer really did its job and kept me matte all day. It glides on pretty easy and gave me a smooth, flawless canvas to apply my makeup. I love that it is colorless & odorless, Milk Makeup is also Cruelty-Free, Paraben-Free, 100% Vegan.

The only con is that I did not like how bulky the stick… while trying to prime it does not fit into all the small nooks in crannies in your face, but they do offer a mini version if you are interested.

Bottom Line: I  did like this product and I would recommend this to someone with oily skin.
