Verso Skincare - New Products

If you follow me on Instagram and watch my stories regularly, you might have noticed that I have a bit of an obsession with the Verso Lip Balm. Verso, if you have never come across the brand before are a Swedish skincare brand and the name VERSO actually translates in Latin to reverse. Most of their products within the Verso range contains Retinol 8 which is an innovative complex of Vitamin A boosting retinol that works to increase the skin's production of collagen for a plumper and smoother finish.

I originally wrote about Verso on my blog last year (here) and during that time, I have continued to get to know it as a brand as more products have been released.  To add to the products I have been using are these: 

One item that is always in any skincare routine of mine is a serum and this Hydrating Serum (£79) is just beautiful. Verso’s founder, Lars Fredriksson, advocates that keeping your skin really hydrated is the best basis for defying signs of ageing and to prove his point, this serum which has a unique formula made up with a mixture of oat lipids and oils. Derived from the Nordic countries, these ingredients are to because they ward off the development of skin problems and irritation caused by dryness. So you will find Niacinamide included in this serum and it helps to strengthen the skins barrier as well as helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and enlarged pores.  Alongside this, ceramides, vitamin E and skin-identical fatty acids have an efficient antioxidant effect, defending skin from harmful environmental factors.

As well as keeping my skin really hydrated, I love how light the texture of this gel-like serum is, it glides onto the skin, isn't sticky or tacky when massaged in it leaves my skin silky soft to the touch.

One product I couldn't wait to try was the Verso Antioxidant Turmeric Booster (£79). Described as being a powerful facial serum which offers both immediate and long-term antioxidant effects, thanks to the power of turmeric and vitamin E, it intrigued due to the addition of Turmeric, an ingredient some work colleagues swear by for fixing a whole host of ailments. In the case of this serum, Turmeric works to protect the skin against UV radiation and decreases inflammation. Then we have vitamin E which works to block damaging free radicals from the skin’s surface whilst simultaneously improving the skin’s hydration capacity with help from tiny microalgae.  Again the inclusion of Oat lipids and oils from the Nordic countries is found within this Booster to provide further hydration and to help repair the skin.

The texture of this Booster is a light gel serum, it doesn't have a scent to it but on the skin, I have found to be incredibly soothing, particularly with the bitterly cold weather spell we have just had.  As I have combination skin, one issue I am constantly trying to tackle is dryness on my cheeks which often leaves them a little red, so I am hoping this is the product to help with that.

I am a huge hand cream fan, I go through tubes of it and if there is a product to champion right now for me it is the Verso Hand Serum (£50).  Described as being a 'supercharged treatment' it works to correct and protect using a retinol-rich formula and  UV filters to deflect the damage caused by daily sun exposure.

Using Verso's patented Retinol 8 Complex, this hand serum is incredibly rich, nourishing and alongside the Retinol 8 is Vitamin A which is said to have a dramatic impact on texture and tone – reversing signs of ageing by encouraging the creation of collagen and plumping hyaluronic acid. Again, we are told that by encouraging cells to mimic the behaviour of younger skin, Hand Serum works to help diminish the appearance of crêpey-ness and wrinkles, and with sustained use, will prompt a visible reduction in dark spots and scars.  I love how lightweight the serum is and how you literally only need a small amount to ensure your hands are covered and as advised, I use mine at least twice a day, usually first thing in a morning and definitely last thing at night before bedtime.  If my hands feel like they really need something extra, then I will use this more often, the joy of working in an office means I am constantly tapping away on my keyboard, dealing with paper and ink, all of which dry my hands out.

If you hadn't guess by now, I am incredibly impressed with Verso and am really enjoying getting to know it as a brand and finding out what works for me and my skin.

  2. I recently started to use the Turmeric Booster and I love it! I take turmeric supplements because my Consultant recommended them due to the inflammation in my body so I knew it would work well on my skin that is prone to redness and inflammation. The hydrating serum sounds really beautiful too! xx
