Last year I had the honour to meet Lars Frederiksen- the fouder of Verso Skincare in Stockholm. He has learned me alot about skincare and also about his beautiful skincare line Verso Skincare. He has encouraged me to try one of his favourites : the Verso Super Facial Serum (€130/30ml). If you want to know more about the brand please read the interview with Lars Frederiksen here .
This serum is not your regular type of serum, it has a very creamy texture. Despite that it sinks in with the speed of light without leaving my combination skin greasy and I don’t break out from it. Since pure vitamin A and Retinol is UV sensitive Verso Skincare came with a solution for those who want results without all the precautions. The highly effective ‘Retinol 8 complex ‘ is a stabilized vitamin A derative which is eight times more effective and can be used in cosmetics. The concentration of the active ingredient vitamin A in the Verso Super Facial Serum is 0,1 %. Why should we apply retinol/viamin A? because vitamin A can treat acne and wrinkles and it has the ability to lighten pigmentation. I don’t have wrinkles yet but I do have lots of pigmentation thanks to my acne prone skin. I use this serum twice a day and I can tell you that I haven’t experienced any form of irritation on my skin. I have been using this serum for months now and I can not find anything bad to mention about it. This serum might not not contain SPF but it isn’t a bad thing. It is perfect for daytime and nightime use . I don’t always apply sunscreen when I am staying inside for the day. Not leaving the house or staying inside doesn’t mean that I am not taking care of my skin properly. I still pamper my skin with creams and serums but I just don’t need the SPF so badly during those moments. After applying the Super Facial Serum on my clean skin and neck I let it sit for a moment before applying makeup or other creams. To be honest this serum works perfectly alone because it is so rich. If your skintype is dry you might need a light moisturiser to put on top of the serum but I don’t think that it is necessary. I agree that the price is a bit steep for 30ml but you don’t need alot of it, you can also double it up as an eye serum and it does’t irritate the skin. Lets not forget the stylish package! this brand has to be lined up in your bathroom because it looks beautiful. My skin looks glowy and plumped after applying it. I do highly recommend the Verso Super Facial Serum to all of you especially for those of you that can not tolerate prescription retin A.
