Verso Skincare

I absolutely love discovering new brands and my current obsession is Verso. If you have never come across Verso before, they are a Swedish skincare brand and VERSO is actually translates in Latin to reverse which I think is quite clever. Most of their products within the Verso range contains Retinol 8 which increases the production of collagen and effectively reverses visible signs of ageing.

Verso Skincare
So a few weeks ago I went along to an event at which, the fabulous Nikki not only introduced us to the brand and told us all about it and we got to do a master featuring the entire range. Now this idea is quite simple but equally incredible. As much as I love receiving new skincare, on quite a few occasions I am never too sure that I am using it right or am using it to ensure I get the maximum benefits possible.  Now sometimes I will email the company/PR to ask questions just to make sure and other times I will Google to see what comes up. So with the Verso range and with Nikki, we all got some understanding of how it works and in what order to use it and here are my favourite products.

Verso Foaming Cleanser (£32) - We all know that good skincare needs a good cleanser and this one is not only gentle but it is also non-drying. Designed to eradicate makeup, dirt, grime and any other impurities that might be lurking on the surface. You only need a small amount of this cleanser to massage over dampened skin, admittedly getting the cleanser to foam is quite the task and it is slow to lather (I cheat and use my DHC mesh) it does leave your skin feeling incredibly skin, it isn't drying and it doesn't strip the skin.

Verso Skincare
The Foaming Cleanser is one of the products that does not contain the patented ‘Retinol 8 Complex’ and this is a unique Vitamin A derivative (with eight times the potency of typical Retinol in the same dosage), together with polyphenol extracts – that works to smooth the appearance of wrinkles, strengthen the skin barrier, reduce pigmentation and supply the skin with more much-needed energy and oxygen to refine and illuminate without irritating - in a nutshell.  Retinol 8 Complex does feature in the next few products I am sharing with you.

Next comes the Verso Face Oil and it does have a hefty price tag at £150 but my view is that if it works and you are happy with it, then the money doesn't matter (that is my justification anyway).

Verso Skincare
Now the oil is an age-reversing dry-oil spray and it is formulated with VERSO’s exclusive Retinol 8 Complex which is eight times more effective than non-prescription vitamin A in the same dosage as mentioned already. What I loved as soon as I tried this oil is not only how incredibly lightweight it is but just how quickly my skin drinks it up and absorbs it into the skin. I am yet to really notice any fine lines or wrinkles so but this oil is said to diminish the visibility of wrinkles, strengthen the skins barrier, reduce pigmentation and supply cells with more, much-needed ‘fuel’ and oxygen to help them behave like younger versions of themselves and that description alone would make me purchase it anyway.


I never go without an eye cream or serum and I am currently using this Verso Super Eye Serum (£75), one of the brands bestsellersIt is said that very few eye products contain such a high concentration of wrinkle and sun-damage-busting retinol because it's usually super irritating, but not so with this product and not at all so far with the products that I have tried from the range.
Verso Skincare
Again, formulated with that all exclusive Retinol 8 Complex, this eye serum is ideal for firming, smoothing and plumping out creases in the delicate eye area such as crow’s feet, creases as well as dark circles and eye bags. There is also a cocktail of amino acids work to counteract puffiness, which for me is one of my main eye issues. I have a stressful job (blogging is a hobby) and I work long hours, sometimes the days are in a blur because I can be incredibly busy, so sleep is a luxury that I am sometimes not fortunate to get enough of, so I like my eye products and whilst I have only used this for a few weeks, I have noticed how effective it is on the eye bags.

I am also a lip balm addict and I have a new favourite, sorry Dr Lipp but you have been replaced by Verso Lip. Within the Verso’s Lip Serum (£55) you will again find the ‘Retinol 8’ complex and the product is described as being a must for those whose lips are starting to lose youthful plumpness, as well as those with a heavily lined lip contour (this is a must for smokers!).
Verso Skincare
For me lips are important and are one of the facial features that I look at the most. I would hate to think that mine were dry, crusty and flaking at any given moment, which is why I exfoliate regularly. The Verso Lip Serum is incredibly nourishing and using the supercharged levels of vitamin A are said to have a dramatic impact on skin tone and texture by encouraging the creation of collagen and plumping hyaluronic acid. By encouraging the cells to mimic the behaviour of younger skin, Lip Serum dramatically diminishes the depth of wrinkles – even stubborn, deep-set creases – and with sustained use and lips therefore become smoother, more supple and voluminous. Again, I have no wrinkles or lines around my lips and no deep set creases but I do use a lot of balm to keep my lips supple, soft and smooth.

The final product is the Verso Reviving Eye Mask (£45 per 3 pack) which is described as being "A quick-fix solution for the sleep-deprived". The masks have been developed to help fortify that fragile fabric of the skin around the eyes and doing so without irritation or aggravation.
Verso Skincare
The Hydrogel patches do contain the signature Retinol 8 Complex alongside hyaluronic acid, brightening grapefruit extract and strengthening ceramide-3. The eye mask is said to kick-start cellular regeneration whilst at the same time enhancing moisture levels which helps to diminish depth of crow’s feet and promote a youthful, well-slept look in minutes.

I also have a set of three (£14) Verso Exfoliating Cloths.  These cloths are super-soft skin-polishing muslins, which are perfect for use with their Foaming Cleanser, to gently refine your skin’s texture and they come packaged inside this handy plastic pouch making them perfect for travelling.

Have you tried anything from the Verso range and does anything capture your attention?
