Is this the beginning of Fenty Skincare? Last March, Rihanna prompted speculation on a possible skincare line when she registered “Fenty Skin” at the US Patent and Trademark Office. According to the application, it will cover "medicated and non-medicated skincare, soap, body care, and personal care products”. This May, it seems RiRi will make good on her promise. A recent post on the Fenty Beauty Instagram teased the launch of the Pro Kiss’r Balm. Another teaser for the balm followed alongside the Pro Kiss’r Scrub. The new products will be launching officially on 10 May but here’s what we know so far about the lip prep duo.
Fenty Beauty Pro Kiss’r Balm
The first of what we hope are more Fenty skincare products, Pro Kiss’r Balm is something between a lip balm and a creamy lip gloss in texture. Like the latter, it comes with its own applicator wand. The balm has a light pink tinge but goes on sheer as seen on Rihanna’s teaser. It includes rich, hydrating ingredients such as shea and mango butters to keep lips nourished. The non-sticky formula makes it comfortable to wear and the light peach-vanilla scent appealing to the taste.
Fenty Beauty Pro Kiss’r Scrub
The second addition to Fenty Beauty skincare products, Pro Kiss’r scrub comes in a lipstick format unlike most lip scrubs which come in small pots. This format ensures less mess and a more hygienic way of exfoliating your lips (no fingers dipping = less contamination). Instead of sugar, apricot seeds act as the main exfoliators. It’s lightweight, non-greasy, and fuss-free. Simply swipe back and forth and clean up with a tissue for soft, kissable lips.
With plenty of lip products such as the award-winning Gloss Bomb and Rihanna’s favourite Stunna Lip Paint in their arsenal, the lip prep duo is a good transition product from makeup into skincare. We can only imagine what comes next for Fenty Beauty and what other fun concoctions Rihanna’s cooking up for Fenty Skin. One thing’s for sure though: it will be worth the wait.
