It’s been five years since I’ve discovered Verso Skincare and their efficient Retinol 8 formula.
During these years I’ve re-purchased several times my favourite products from their range and I honestly say that it’s the only formula with retinol that I recommend right now.
Verso says that their products suit any types of skin, however, if you are dealing with sensitive skin, please try a sample first because this is powerful stuff.
Retinol or Vitamin A is scientifically proven to reduce the signs of ageing, it is stimulating the skin’s own production of collagen and hyaluronic acid. Used consistently, it helps prevent wrinkles and sagging skin. It is also an antioxidant and is used to manage acne, eczema and skin discolouration.
Verso has patented a formula which is eight times more potent than typical retinol as well as being less UV sensitive and less aggressive.
I usually use the products during the cold season, when the days are shorter and darker.
I see results after the 3rd use meaning that my skin is more plump, it has a great glow and the fine lines look very much less obvious.
Also, when I have acne episodes, the formula helps my skin heel very quickly (sometimes, in only 24h).
My favourite products are:
Verso Eye Cream Extra Nourish €65,00/20ml:
This product is a new addition to the range and it’s an eye cream which does not contain retinol.
It can be combined with the Eye Serum (which does contain Retinol 8) or it can be used on its own.
It has a very light, fragrance-free formula which feels refreshing and hydrates the under eye area perfectly. It makes a beautiful makeup base and it’s a very gentle product.
I recommend it for sensitive eyes and for dry and sensitive skin!
Also worth mentioning:
Almost all Verso products have pump dispensing and air tight bottles that preserve the ingredients and prevent contamination.
NO parabens, mineral oils, sulphates and phthalates. Verso is a cruelty-free brand.
There is also a small room for improvement, for example: I would prefer for the Day Cream to contain SPF.
Also, the packaging is beautifully designed, however it’s impossible to tell how much product there is left after a few weeks; even holding the bottle up to the light doesn’t reveal the cream within.
