Rihanna launches new vegan, earth-conscious Fenty Skin

Latest News

Following her iconic Fenty Beauty launch in 2017, Rihanna has extended her empire with vegan and environmentally-friendly Fenty Skin products.

Rihanna’s skincare line Fenty Skin follows her well-known, diverse values. Rihanna curated Fenty Skin for everyone: all skin types, tones, and genders. She states on her website: “It works, feels incredible, and makes you feel good for using it.” 

When creating Fenty Skin, Rihanna drew on her own experiences. When she was younger, she had tried a variety of skincare that left her skin discoloured. This scared her away from trying anything else for a long time. “It is everything I wish I had back then,” the singer-songwriter stated.

Fenty skin is clean, vegan and earth-conscious. The packaging is made of recyclable materials, the shipping boxes are fully recyclable, and one of the three products have refillable packages. Rihanna said of Fenty Beauty: “I wanted the packaging to be beautiful, but also functional, with an earth-conscious approach.” With less packaging come fewer expenses. But the “luxurious experience” is still there.

The initial Fenty Skin release offers three products. Altogether, they produce a routine to give you your best skin in three simple steps. When used simultaneously these products aim to brighten your skin, reduce the pore-appearance, and combat dark spots.

Total Cleans’r Remove-It-All Cleanser

As well as being vegan and gluten-free, this product is both a makeup remover and cleanser. The cleanser transforms from a cream to a lather as it works to strip out the oil and dirt from your skin. It contains Barbados cherries, which are loaded with vitamin C and brighten your skin. The additional Ginkgo Biloba helps to control oil and clarify your skin.

Those with particularly sensitive skin may often find it difficult to use products containing scents. But Fenty Skin uses “clean [fragrances], and any synthetic fragrance [it uses] is less than 1% of the total formula”. This product in particular smells like cherries and coconut.

However, because everyone’s skin is different, it may be a good idea to look at some reviews before purchasing your own.

Fat Water Pore-Refining Toner Serum

Also vegan and gluten-free, this is a two-in-one toner and serum. Fenty Beauty describes it as a “universal game-changer”. This product aims to instantly refine pores, reduce the appearance of dark spots, and fight oil without dehydrating the skin. It is made from ingredients like Australian lemon myrtle, which refines pores, as well as Niacinamide, which is known to reduce dark spots and keep the skin shine-free.


Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen

Acknowledging the importance of SPF for every skin tone, Rihanna has created this sunscreen to be a lightweight moisturiser, oil-free and invisible on everyone’s skin. Often, sunscreen leaves a white cast on the skin, yet this formula claims to blend in as it is tinted pink and leaves no flashback. This product is infused with ingredients like the Kalahari melon, which is rich in antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid which hydrates the skin.

Is Fenty Skin sustainable?

In terms of earth-consciousness, these products have no box or shrink wraps, which means less waste. The tube for the cleanser is made with 40% post-consumer recycled materials and the toner serum bottle is recyclable. It is an earth- and animal-friendly skincare line that can be enjoyed by those who value sustainability and are vegan.
