I am sorry but 75$ for 3 of the most basic skincare products is a rip-off. In Europe you can get pharmacy-grade stuff for that kind of money.

In every country you can get pharmacy-grade stuff for small amount of money, but it’s not marketed as a pharmacy brand though

$75 for three skin care products with good ingredients, beautiful packaging are very affordable in my opinion and many agree with me

It you think Fenty Skin products don’t worth its price, then I suggest you to purchase other products

because some people know a lot about ingredients and can determine whether the ingredients are mediocre, good or bad. 

with fenty skin it seems most of the ingredients is just very mediocre and has unnecessary additions in it that either don’t do much or anything and have fragrance in it which is an irritating ingredient, just as some others that are used in this line. 

Not you and this YouTube nobody describing all the skincare there is on earth with this opening line... :ahh:

The package, the marketing and fenty brand won't do anything for your skin in the end. The ingredients are the only relevant factor in skincare and they are mediocre with fentyskin.

Yeah you’d still have to pay for it. 
 

You think people with deep and concerning skin issue would go to Fenty?!! Rihanna has literally said this will help your makeup look better :ahh:

All those fragrance sheep:ahh:

Fragrance-free is a topic that some brands have been trying to push just to find a way to promote their fragrance-free brands

Most of the most famous and renowned skin care brands like Estée Lauder, Lancôme, Olay, L’Oreal, La Prairie, La Mer, their products all have fragrance and artificial coloring in their products but most people have no problems with using them for decades and they’re still going strong without removing them from its ingredients

Only very few amount of people are allergic to fragrance. And even they’re allergenic, most people’s skin is only sensitive to a very specific type of fragrance. They only need to avoid those one specific type of ingredient

Unless there are a lot of kinds of fragrance have been adding to one product, it won’t hurt your skin. Stop acting like they can burn your skin:skull:

Racism.

There another person here insisting Black Skin is SOMEHOW different or something else. Like...

Us dermatologists are taught about SKIN not the amount of melanin in the skin. It does matter, like some conditions like DPN can only be found in darker skin types, however, we DO study it.
Black and White and Brown and Blue and Yellow all skins have pores, function the same, however, there are some skin issues that are exclusive to white and rare in black and vice verse. However, we cover BOTH.

 

Also, fragrance and other parabens or other harmful things are going to affect the white and black skin the SAME. So IDK how the race thing is applicable here.

IDK why @BajanBeauty is insisting Rihanna's skin care line is a MIRACLE for black skin when it is AS DAMAGING to black and white skin as other GENERIC brands like Kylie Skin.

also LEAVE Dr. Dray out of this shxt.

This woman’s a doctor? I find her weight alarming and tbh  she shouldn’t be representative of the beauty community advertising such a blatantly unhealthy weight as a beauty ideal. This isn’t cns cause of her review, I’m genuinely concerned for her.

Adverse reactions to fragrances in perfumes and in fragranced cosmetic products include allergic contact dermatitis, irritant contact dermatitis, photosensitivity, immediate contact reactions (contact urticaria), and pigmented contact dermatitis. Airborne and connubial contact dermatitis occur.

If you don't mind fragrance that's super, but don't downplay people who don't tolerate them. I personally can't use some products because my eyes start burning and turning red when I put them on my face even though I avoid eye area.

Nobody is downplaying fragrance. Actually, it’s some people are exaggerating the side effect of fragrance

Skin care companies have been using fragrance for decades but it has never really been a problem until recently because some companies are trying to use fragrance-free as a selling point for their products. Therefore, they exaggerate the side effect of fragrance

A very small amount of fragrance won’t harm most people’s skin. Otherwise, brands like Estée Lauder, Lancôme, La Prairie, La Mer would’ve been sued to hell because they have been using those things for decades

Most people’s reason to bash fragrance and artificial coloring is just because they think their effects (adding scents and colors) are unrelated to skin care. It’s not a problem for most people. Only very few people are allergic to a very specific type of fragrance

Are you sure you’re allergic to fragrance? Have you been to a dermatologist and asked them to help you find out what ingredients caused your allergy?

It can help you find out what skin care products you can use when you know what ingredient can cause your allergy

She has eating disorder most likely but that doesn't make her knowledge less valuable.

everyone kept saying the fragrance is wayyyy too strong...

There is only less than 1% of fragrance 

I haven’t got my Fenty Skin products. But the scent is strong doesn’t mean they add a lot of fragrance

That’s not an excuse, this is a fact :deadbanana2:

 

Why do you think people pay for a La Mer skincare?...it’s surely not for the amazing performance and ingredients  :skull:

Fenty skin literally just launched. Of course they won't released products with highly advanced ingredient that target specific concerns YET. LOL I'm sure it is coming in the next launch.  Rihanna always take it slow with her brand and slowly build up the products. 

 

Some reviewers are quick to just give their 2 cents based on the ingredients alone but never give it time to try it first. Skincare takes weeks to see results.

The thing about skincare is you need to consider the formula and how these actives are deliver to your skin as well. 

That why sometime you find product with the most basic ingredient but it work so well for you compare to the one with high concentration of actives and yet you see no result at all. Ingredient list can only tell you so much. 

 

While i don't like fragrance in skincare myself  but i feel like we are overreacting to it a bit tbh.

Skincare is primarily a field of medicine, and although it has been bastardised by the beauty industry that doesn’t mean all products are the same and all ingredients across all product lines are the same.

 

The fact of the matter is the Fenty line is selling basic products at an overinflated price point. This may be intentional by Rihanna - the same qualities that make it “universal” are the ones that mean it will be generally ineffective in terms of high powered skincare ingredients, because strong actives are absolutely not universally tolerated by different skins - but using this line vs something science led with proven ingredients (not La Mer) would be as different as night and day in terms of results. 

 

If you want to support Rihanna and don’t think her selling overpriced basic products at ridiculous markups is worthy of criticism, that’s on you. Certainly plenty of other brands do the same.

I never said it did. I said should she really be commentating on the beauty industry when she is so clearly the product of its damaging effects on women.  I would hate to think of my daughter or any child watching this and aspiring to be that dangerously thin or assuming that that is normal.

That wasnt my point. 

 

Justifying awful basic line skincare for 'the lifestyle' is just appalling and ungrounded.

 

This isnt fashion where its all subjective, its literally a facet of your health being bastardized by the beauty community.

I didn't really expect Fenty Skin to be groundbreaking or heavily science based like Paula's Choice, NIOD, IS Clinical etc, but I really anticipated more than Millie Bobby Brown's or Kylie Jenner's skincare lines. Fenty Skin obviously nods to Glossier in its packaging and target audience, and I expected a revolutionary aspect reminiscent of the inclusive USP of Fenty Beauty. Unfortunately, Fenty Skin consists of products that will be totally lost in the skincare world and serves as nothing more than a way of extracting more cash from Fenty Beauty fans. Dr Dray is right  - we did not need another basic skincare line with debatable ingredients, fragrance and IG-friendly packaging.
