Versed skincare is budget friendly clean beauty line that likes to describe themselves as the cleanest drugstore skincare brand. They have some interesting skincare products so I’m excited to finally share my review on this widely accessible range. Versed offers cleansers, moisturizers, serums, toners, eye care, masks, peels and spot treatments as well as retinol body lotion, most of which are under $20. Where can you buy Versed? Versed is at Target and Amazon but not ULTA. Pour yourself a glass of vino and read on for my Versed review.
If you’re wondering who started Versed, their parent company is a corporation called Clique Brands, which owns six digital publications including the popular Who What Wear and The Thirty.
It’s no surprise that for a relatively new brand, Versed has the funds to create on-trend skincare products regularly. You’ll see this with their popular retinol body lotion and acne body mist which solve people’s pain points. Note that some products contain phenoxyethanol as the preservative.
Having caught the uglies this winter, I was in desperate need of a new resurfacing mask to slough away my dead skin cells and bring back glowy skin. The Versed Instant Resurfacing Mask has such a fun jell-O consistency – it feels like I’m applying literal jelly onto my skin. There’s a very slight tingling sensation indicating to me that it’s working.
For under $18 I think you get a lot of bang for your buck – Doctor’s Visit Instant Resurfacing Mask has:
- lactic acid 2%
- glycolic acid 2%
- salicylic acid 0.15%
- pineapple and papaya enzymes 1.2%
So you’re getting a triple threat mask that combines AHA, BHA, and enzyme exfoliation to fight hyperpigmentation and boost cell turnover. The addition of salicylic acid is great for acne-prone and acneic skin too.
The new Versed Guards Up Daily Mineral Sunscreen is a creamy yet lightweight sunscreen with a subtle tint to offset any white cast. Note that it’s not meant to function as a tinted sunscreen and does not provide any coverage other than a subtle blurring effect. It has a natural finish that’s neither matte nor dewy and spreads evenly which can sometimes not be the case for lightweight-consistency sunscreens.
There’s no scent to it other than a natural oat-like scent from its ingredients. Overall, I’m enjoying this sunscreen and love the packaging. Versed Mineral Sunscreen contains:
- zinc oxide | 15.2%
- sea fennel extract
- moringa seed extract
