One line that has stood the test of time in my complicated and ever changing skincare routine is Verso Skincare. I started using their eye cream a few years ago, and it was the first eye product that actually made my under eye puffs go away. I have recommended this product left and right, but the whole line is pretty damn good too. I have even noticed that one of my favorites Elin Kling is a huge fan too. Made in Stockholm, this simple six product series contains the power of retinol 8, which has been proven to be one of the most effective substances in anti-aging. The system is made up of a day cream, night cream, cleanser, eye serum (my favorite!), face serum and the newest launch, dark spot fix.
There are tons of skincare lines that contain retinol, so why is Verso’s program unique? It contains a new Vitamin A acid derivative that is 8 times more potent than traditional retinol, and is stable and gentle for the skin. “Retinol 8 has a proven rejuvenating effect on the skin and it works by making the skin cells mimic how younger cells behave. The substance stimulates the production of collagen and increases the flow of nourishment to the skin, which leads to improved skin elasticity, a more even skin tone and a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, ” says Lars Fredriksson, the man behind Verso Skincare and the developer of the substance Retinol 8.
What I like most about Verso is its simplicity. Similar to a juice cleanse, the products are numbered 1-5, so it’s basically fail-proof. They are also perfectly packaged, super chic, minimalist and easy to travel with. Science, simplicity, AND Sweden? That’s the power of Verso.
