The BEST of Versed Skincare
I first saw this brand at Target and was super excited to try some of the products. I was very surprised with quite a few of these products, but also disappointed with others. I’ll talk about the disappointing products in another post though. VERSED - PRESS RESTART This serum has a lightweight lotion feel to it which is great for most skin types. Those with oily skin may find that this product is too hydrating. This serum also works well with other products. -Contains a good amount of retinol along with bakuchiol which helps stabilize the formula and it has the same effects as retinol. -Fragrance-free. -The formula includes moisture-retaining sugars such as xylitol. -The formula also contains antioxidant plant extracts such as prickly pear, aloe, as well as sea buckthorn, rosehip oils, and shea butter. VERSED - FIND CLARITY Purifying Mask This mask has a creamy texture which is comfortable for all skin types. It is fragrance-free and unlike other clay masks, it is free of other irritants. -After rinsing, this product leaves skin smoother and softer. -Uses kaolin and bentonite clays to control shine absorb excess oil. VERSED - ON THE RISE FIRMING SERUM This is a lightweight serum that is suitable for all skin types and leaves a non-greasy finish. The formula also includes sodium hyaluronate for hydration. -Contains many antioxidants in the forms of vitamin C, E, and A. -Includes a very soothing combo of peptides that help to improve signs of sun damage and replenish the skin’s surface. VERSED - Silk Slip Conditioning Lip Oil This product is described as an oil but is a little thicker than that which helps it to stay on the lips. There is a noticeable shine after application, but nothing too dramatic. This lip oil is free of fragrance, flavor, or other irritating ingredients. -Includes a great amount of antioxidants such as non-fragrant jojoba, soybean, sesame, macadamia olive, and sunflower oils. -The formula also includes shea butter which is a good emollient. -All ingredients listed above contribute to hydrating and smoothing that help the appearance of healthy, plump lips. VERSED - THE FIX Emergency Eye Mask The texture of this product has a slightly thick gel consistency that applies easily. It dries somewhat quickly, but since it has a thick texture, it’s better to use at night. The gel has a cooling effect but this isn’t due to any potentially irritating, cooling ingredients like menthol. -Contains cucumber which is great for its hydrating and antioxidant abilities. -Includes two peptides which is helpful for fine lines around the eyes and such. -Non-fragrant rosehip oil, moisturizing pantheol, vitamin C, and two forms of Vitamin E are included which help strengthen the eye area. -Caffeine is included which can help soothe redness, but there isn’t much research that proves it can help puffy eyes.
Ingredient Spotlight w/ VERSED Anti-Aging Bundle
I tried the youth preserving “bounce back bundle” from VERSED (at Target) for 15 days! Here are my thoughts. ✨ VERSED - ON THE RISE FIRMING SERUM Ingredient of Interest: Resveratrol Function: anti-aging antioxidant found in red wine, well studied in the lab for anti-inflammatory, anticarcinogenic (melanoma), anti-UV properties. Price: $19.99 for 1 Oz Comments: No real complaints about the serum itself, the formula sits on the face comfortably, doesn’t pill or sting. The packaging is minimal but feels a little cheap because of the plastic. I don’t love that the opening doesn’t have a protective mesh barrier to keep impurities from getting into the bottle with use. I haven’t noticed any drastic changes to my skin after two weeks but I don’t mind it in my skincare routine. VERSED - ZERO-G Smoothing Eye Cream Ingredient of Interest: Eyeliss Peptide Triad (HMC, PT-7, and Dipeptide-2) Function: increases lymphatic circulation, reduce “bruising” and blood vessel issues associated with dark circles. Price: $17.99 for 0.5 Oz Comments: I was first drawn to the eye cream because it’s formula (Eyeliss), known in medicine for reducing bruising. I do think this eye cream works much better for me in reducing dark circles than caffeine does!! The cream is not too thick upon application but it does leave an immediate warming (burning for some) sensation which may be concerning for sensitive skin. It’s strange because we can’t really avoid the eye area if it’s meant to be an eye cream! I have noticed results in the past two weeks, however, and will continue to use this! The packing is again plastic and the tiny inside lid fits awkwardly onto the container but it’s something I’m willing to overlook if the formula works. Not badly priced for an eye cream either. VERSED - THE SHORTCUT Overnight Facial Peel Ingredient of Interest: Glycolic and Lactic Acid Price: $9.99 for 0.5 Oz Comments: As I’ve mentioned in a different post, as a regular AHA user, the glycolic and lactic acids are way too far down the ingredient list for me to notice a huge different to my skin but it’s a great intro product. It’s a gentle night cream, essentially sits like a lotion. I am not repurchasing as I can’t justify the price for the amount of product I’m getting- there are far better options out there. Love the sleek packaging though! VERSED - STROKE OF BRILLIANCE Brightening Serum Ingredient of Interest: Vitamin C derivative (sodium ascorbyl phosphate) and Niacinamide Price: $19.99 for 1 Oz Comments: I only got a sample of this bestselling serum- overall I have no complaints but it didn’t wow me either. I know there are more economical options out there but one perk is that you get Vit C and Niacinamide in one serum! It’s a thicker consistency than other Vit C serums I’ve tried but I wouldn’t say it’s more hydrating- in fact, I actually felt that it was more drying than I’m used to.

Overnight exfoliating cream❤️
Versed is one of my favourite brands and I have tried many of their products. I really enjoy that the products not only looks super cute on my vanity but the company’s values line up with my own. I love that they are cruelty free and they try and use recyclable material for their packaging. Ever since I have incorporated chemical exfoliants my skin has really improved. I have tried all sorts of exfoliant options and I like most so I usually choose which depending on my mood. I really like this overnight peel when I want to have a simple routine. The reason for this is it tells you not not add other products such as actives. When I use this I just wash my face, apply this cream and moisture. If you don’t have dry skin it advises that you don’t have to add a moisturizer as it is moisturizing enough alone. Texture: This product comes out as a cream that is soothing and easily massaged into the skin. Price: This product comes in two sizes so you can try it out before fully investing which I love. The small is 0.5 oz and costs $13 cad and the full is 1oz and costs $26 cad. Effectiveness: When I use this I always wake up to fresh glowing skin. My skin never feels dried out or peels which are common side effects I get with many exfoliants. VERSED - THE SHORTCUT Overnight Facial Peel
The rage is real✨
PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Niacinamide Booster Paula’s choice 10% niacinamide booster is another product that has totally transformed my skin. Despite the price point, this product delivers 100% by minimizing the appearance of pores and aiding in the texture of skin. It has brightened up my skin within 2 months of using the niacinamide booster continuously. Within 6 months of using this product on a daily routine, you will see a significance difference in the sizes of your pores. In addition, the consistency of the product is somewhat oily which helps with hydration and leaves the skin looking healthy as ever. ——————————————— How to use? This particular product is best to use during the morning. Add this into your morning skin routine: cleanse tone drops of niacinamide moisturizer if needed SPF of 50 or higher ——————————————— Results As mentioned above, this product delivers the most. The appearance of my pores have significant decreased and I am so happy with how well this product fit right into my skin. It does not irritate the skin or feel greasy whatsoever. ———————————————— Recommend 95% If you have dehydrated skin and large pores and you’re looking to minimize the appearance of your pores, definitely invest in this product! The reason I say this product is a better fit for those with dry skin is because the consistency of the product is oily and I’m not sure how well it would work on someone with oily skin. Furthermore, the price point of this product is fairly expensive for the amount of product you receive. Regardless, it makes a huge difference on your skin and is worth it for these skin concerns!
PAULA'S CHOICE-10% Niacinamide Booster
recently i just bought this snail serum to help get rid of my texture, moisturize, and repair my skin. looking at the photos i think it did two out of the 3 things. my textured skin seems the same and i really don't see a difference, but it feels really moisturized and healthy. i usually mix this in with my moisturizer and then roll out my skin and it works just perfectly. if your looking for a serum that will give you a dewy, youthful look then this is it. but it doesn't get rid of texture or acne. so i didn't finish my summary yesterday, and did my regular night routine. i haven't used this serum long and i went to bed last night and my texture is much better, my skin looks clear and softer than yesterday. i honestly think the product needed more time to settle and adjust to my skin.
Niacinamide - Oily Skin Lifesaver
Niacinamide is one of my all time favorite ingredients. It’s an oily skin life saver that regulates excess sebum, helps reduce blemishes and redness, and brightens the skin. THE inkey LIST - Niacinamide Oil Control Serum niacinamide serum does just that with it’s formula that contains key active ingredients such as 10% niacinamide, multi molecular hyaluronic acid 1%, glycerin, squalane, radish root ferment filtrate, allantoin, and panthenol. This has an opaque lightweight gel texture that easily absorbs into the skin leaving a slight tackiness. Once something else is layered over this, that tackiness disappears. I was expecting this to work like any other typical niacinamide serum but this was surprisingly more hydrating than others that I’ve tried. My skin loved this as this serum kept my skin looking smooth, plump, even toned, less red, poreless, and less like a grease ball by the end of the day. Fortunately, I didn’t experience any pilling, and it layers well under and over all the products in my routine. I also didn’t experience any stinging or irritations while using this even with the high percentage of niacinamide. The only con I noticed with this product was the packaging. Unfortunately, the product tends to build up and crystallize around the flip cap. I wish this came in a pump but just remember to clear the build up once in a while and you’re good to go. Overall, this is a great product that has made it’s way into my top favorite niacinamide serums. I highly recommend this for those with oily dehydrated skin as it’ll quench that thirst while also keeping your sebum production at bay. I will definitely have to repurchase this again. Have you guys tried this yet? If so, any thoughts on it? Rating: 5/5🌟 #CherieCreator #TheInkeyList
THE inkey LIST-Niacinamide Oil Control Serum
K-Beauty skincare product 💖
Peach and Lily Glass Skin Refining Serum is a product that literally does everything. It contains niacinamide, peach extract, wild yam, madecassoside, peptides and hyaluronic acid. All these wonderful ingredients help to hydrate, calm, brighten and firm the skin. The texture of this serum is very clear and water based like. I have normal to combo skin and mostly my concerns are for my skin to be balanced and to stay hydrated at all time. Now that winter is here, I tend to get on the drier side. This helps my skin stay hydrated and calms my breakouts (because my skin gets dryer, I tend to break out more). Now that I’m 23, My skin is aging so I want to make sure I’m stopping that process and this serum definitely has helped with that as well. It also keeps my skin looking very plump and bright in the morning. I love this serum so much that I will be repurchasing since I just ran out. I would definitely recommend this for all skin types especially for people who get really red (maybe for people who have rosacea) and for people who have oily skin (larger pores). The price is $38 and I think that’s a great price for all the things this serum is offering. Also if you get it now on Ulta, you’ll get free shipping and 20% off! I definitely want to try more things from Peach and Lily. I think they are such an underrated K-Beauty brand and I’ve seen nothing bad about their products! You can use this product twice a day, I believe, but I like to use it at night along with other serums and it’s worked very well for me PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum
PEACH & LILY-Glass Skin Refining Serum
Love The Extra Moisture!
The Peach & Lily Wild Dew Treatment Essence is an essence that is meant to add an extra layer of hydration to the skin after cleansing. It also helps skin fight breakouts and boost radiance throughout the day. All skin types can use this product. This is meant to be applied to clean with a cotton pador hands after cleansing. It has a lovely light water-like texture and absorbs into the skin immediately but also packs in the hydration. I’ve been using this product for a few months and loving it. I love that it contains some powerhouse skincare ingredients like niacinamide and hyaluronic acid. The essence was a new step to my skincare routine (part of the K beauty routine) and I’m loving the extra hydration it gives. I have dry skin and even the most gentle cleansers dry out my skin. This really adds the moisture back into my skin and preps it for the rest of my skincare routine. If you’re looking for some extra hydration in your routine I would absolutely recommend this product. At $39 it’s not cheap but it’s a large bottle that lasts a long time. Totally worth the price in my opinion! I give this one a 5/5 stars.

Vitamin C procuct | VitabridC12
Vitamin C is one of the top three skincare ingredients that I love using on a rotation. It has been proven to lighten pigmentation, stimulate collagen production and even out the skin tone to protect and prevent further sun damage. I’m sure you might have used a VitaminC serum before, but have you ever seen Vitamin C in powder form? Products I recently discovered by barneysny I like both of them, it absorbs quickly, moisturizes well and leaves a good feeling. Facial Boosting Water has a powerful blend of Peptides, Stem Cells and a HyaluronicAcid Triple Complex that strengthens the skin, restores pH balance, and boosts the effectiveness of your entire skincare VitabridC12 FACE Brightening Powder releases active Vitamin C into the skin over the course of 12 hours. The result? A firmer, healthier, and more luminous complexion ✨
