I’m a big fan of Fenty Beauty, especially their lipgloss! And I'm super big on skincare. When Fenty Skin came out I was super excited to test it out and it's now a part of my everyday beauty routine. I’m always using a number of products on my skin – face paints, pigments – so it’s super important for me to have a strong skin care routine. Toner is very present in my routine, as it seals those pores of mine ready for the paint flicks that come my way.
Fenty Skin Fat Water promises to better brighten skin, make pores look smaller, reduces oils in the skin, nourish, and hydrate. Fat Water is great, because not only does it help close my pores and brighten my skin, it also hydrates and moisturises my skin all in one go. I’ve been using it for a couple of months now I’d say, and my skin feels a little plumper now too. Another fab thing is that you don’t need to use a cotton pad, just use your hands (clean, obviously) and you’re good to go. We are helping the environment here too without the pads – what more could you want!
After I’ve completely cleansed my skin, I squeeze a few drops on my hand then tap the product gently onto my skin. It is so soothing on my skin. Some toners feel like it's drying your skin out, but this doesn't. The toner is combined with a serum, which adds the hydrating and moisturising element – you get two products for the price of one. It does everything you need in a toner without stripping the skin. Oh, and itsmells so good too. It’s not overbearing though, which is great because I have sensitive skin and sensitive to smell.
It feels like… Jelly
If this product was one of the astrological signs, it would be… Scorpio. This represents power, firm decisions. This Fenty product knows exactly what it’s doing!
