Hello beautiful people! Did you survive the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales? This year a lot of businesses started pretty early which gave you the chance to pick up a bargain or 2! Anyways, it’s the end of November and that means Christmas 2021 season has begun. So before we dive into the Christmas content, I’m sharing the Fenty Skin Start’r kit review.
Fenty Skin Start’r Kit Review
This is a trio of products that retail for about £32 at Boots and they actually have quite a substantial amount in them. I have been using mine for about 2 months and only just finished the cleanser. There’s still some left over of the other 2 products. These are great for travelling with because the packaging is really great with not leaking and sizes range from 30ml to 50ml.
This cleanser contains Barbados cherry which contains vitamin C and gingko biloba to help oil control and clarify the skin. When this first launched there was a lot of concern surrounding the fragrance and I have to be honest, it didn’t bother me at all. You smell the cherries but there’s no lingering scent for me.
It’s such a gentle cleanser and the texture is gel and cream like which lathers really well. This isn’t a cleanser to remove makeup but rather a second cleanse. Or, your first cleanse in the morning. I knew it was gentle for me, because it didn’t cause any irritation on my cheeks nor any dryness. A full tube at 145ml is £20 which puts it in the mid range category for me.
Next up we have the pore refining toner serum which contains, Australian lemon myrtle and witch hazel water. These ingredients help to reduce oil and refine pores. There’s also Japanese raisin tree and it’s used as a recovery treatment from long nights of partying because it helps detoxify. I find it so refreshing to use, especially first thing in the morning.
I also used it before applying hyaluronic acid when layering skincare products. Has it made a difference? Yes! I notice that the pores on my face aren’t so glaring. The full bottle is 150ml and costs £25 which is more than what I would pay for, for a non-acid toner. However, it does feel nice and I’ve noticed a difference.
Finally, we have the moisturiser which is also an spf. It contains spf 30 to be precise and does have a pleasant scent to it. Again it doesn’t linger on the skin. It contain niacinamide which is great at reducing the appearance of dark spots, evening out your skin tone and fighting excess shine.
This moisturiser impressed me because I didn’t think it would do all that it does. My skin glows without the greasy look and it doesn’t look matte which some spf’s can do. Also there’s no white cast to make you look like you’re part of the undead. The full bottle is 50ml and comes in at £32, which is alot for 50ml however, it is refillable.
For Rihanna’s first foray into skincare, I would say not bad at all. There are new products on the market like the Overnight Recovery Gel Cream which I may give a try. Providing I’ve finished off what I already have in the skincare drawer. I will also mention that the packaging is recyclable and the products are vegan.
That’s all for my Fenty Skin Start’r kit review. I’d love to know if you’ve tried the kit or any of the products from Fenty Skin? Let me know in the comments below.
