The Cleanest Drugstore Skincare Brand Versed: Simple and Clean
Jun. 17, 2020
A confusion associated with selecting a beauty brand is to know whether they are using GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) and ingredients that are truly good for the skin and the environment. That is why I have decided to present a brand that is as considerate of you as it is of the environment. You know it, you love it, and you most probably have used one of their products before. It’s Versed.
With their empowering motto:
“Skin is Complicated
Skincare shouldn’t be”
Versed has set out to redefine beauty and skincare regime and make it all so simple and efficient, then you feel liberated any moment of the day.

The objective is to make good products that give you clean skin, for everyone. The claim is backed by evidence which ensures that high-performance is delivered instead of just creating verbal hype. This is why the product development cycle is started with formula testing and development at first instead of just going ahead with a concept and presenting it in the market.

With an ample amount of information and guide on how to take good care of your skin using their products, Versed acts as a guru waiting for weary travelers coming from far and wide to seek beauty secrets.
They promise their consumers on never putting anything harmful in their product while also showing the effect of their products on un-retouched skin. According to the, they apply the same no B.S. logic when it comes to pricing their products. On top of it all, sustainability is a key aspect of their brand where a strong emphasis is placed on making their products and manufacturing process as green as possible.

Double Your Lash Length With Sky High Mascara!
I bought this mascara after seeing a post about it on Facebook. I love trying out new mascaras but rarely do I find one that I will use regularly like my beloved tarte - Maneater Mascara However this stuff is good. MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Sky High Waterproof Mascara It gave my lashes so much volume & length they literally doubled in size! My lashes are already pretty long to begin with but this made them look amazing. The photo is after applying only one coat so I can only imagine how good they will look after two or three coats! It also didn’t clump up my lashes at all. I applied it really quickly & lazily too because I was in a rush to get ready & I was still amazed! I honestly think this is going to be my new daily mascara. It is waterproof but not the annoying kind that leaves your eyes completely black when you go to take it off. It came off really easily with my POND'S - Facial Moisturizers Dry Skin Cream which is what I’ve always used to remove my eye makeup, since I was a kid! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
Clear skin the gentle way?
Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩 “buh-koo-chee-all” HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum I’ve already become a diehard Herbivore lover. So to receive this beauty was super exciting. When I started my acne journey on Cherie I was (and still am) a Differin Acne Gel stan. This was my choice of retinol and I wanted it strong to treat acne and boost my cellular turnover. Now that my acne is currently under control and it’s getting hot again, I definitely want something smooth and gentle. Bakuchiol is a gentler alternative to the very popular ingredient retinol. So essentially you’ll get overall youthful results for your skin. I haven’t tested this on my acne theory yet, but overall my face has been smooth and irritation free. This serum does not have a smell which I love for products of this caliber. I also love that it’s light and not drying at all. I use this at night and since i have a tolerance to retinol I use it every night. I haven’t been using it long enough to see results (about 12 weeks) but I definitely can’t wait to finish this. Have you tried Bakuchiol?

Black Owned Intimate Care ✨🌹
I did a review on this brand before but in honor of BHM I def had to bring it up again ! #Saltxo - Yoni Shower Gel[products]#[FiveStars] #Saltxo - Femme Rejuv Oil[products]#[FiveStars] I use this gel everyday! It leaves my Yoni energized and clean. I’ve never experienced any irritation and I’m extremely sensitive in that area. It smells very herbal like and a little goes a long way! ($17.99) The Femme Rejuv Oil is a great staple for irritation. I use this baby after my waxes, Emergency shaves, and after getting busy. I find this to be the best oil I’ve ever used down there. A little goes a long way. ($30) This brand is usually always out of stock! She sells out so fast but I always manage to get one thing. I definitely recommend if you love intimate soaps . Do you have a favorite intimate soap ?
