Days before the official launch of Rihanna Fenty Skin, which will be available to order on July 31, the music star has shared her inspiration behind it.
In a recent post, Rihanna shared a video of herself speaking about her inspiration for Fenty Skin with caption;
my skincare journey has been quite complex…some parts of my face are oily, some are dry, fatigue from travel, plus I have super sensitive skin, and chile now being in my 30s?!!
making @fentyskin was a challenge to cover all bases and thinking of the many skin types that are out there! But y’all know I love a good challenge 💪🏿🧖🏿♀️ …
In the video sharing the inspiration behind her Fenty Skin, Rihanna said;
‘Whether you want to wear makeup, light makeup, heavy makeup, whatever you prefer or are in the mood for, there is always a great foundation underneath that and THAT is the inspiration for Fenty Skin.’
Rihanna insisted that when it came down to creating the products for her line, she wanted to formulate products that ‘really work[ed].’
She also wanted the products to be packed with the ‘best ingredients,’ while still being cost efficient.
‘I wanted to make [products] that are better than anything I have every used and everything I have ever encountered and everything that is on the market that has confused me.’
Rihanna added that since she is a ‘woman of color [she] has a lot of sensitivity in a lot of areas on [her] face,’ which often makes her ‘scared and cautious’ towards products.
‘So, in developing these products I really wanted to make sure that it felt comfortable, that they were effective, credible for people who really know skincare, but also I wanted a product that worked more than anything,’ said the Umbrella hitmaker.
‘A lot of people have their own ideas about SPF and who should use it and who shouldn’t, but SPF is for everyone. Every skin tone. Every skin type. Every race,’ she emphasized.
