Here at Gold+Arrow, we're bougie ass ladies and we love it. We pride ourselves on having the best of the best and don't you worry - we test it all out ourselves, so you know that if we've got something in the salon, it's because we are genuinely obsessed with it. That's how Verso Skincare made it's way onto our shelves. After sampling the fledgling line's edited range of product, we instantly knew we couldn't live without it!
Verso's credo is that by utilizing their patented Retinol 8 - which is less abrasive and less UV sensitive than traditional retinol, yet 8 times more effective - they are literally reversing the signs of aging. Like most things that actually work, this isn't an overnight "now you're 20 again!" kind of fix and the best results come with continued use. If you're into science, or whatever, this breaks it down a little better:
Super interesting, right? Not only does the Retinol 8 give us hope for "Ugh, I HATE HER" perfect skin, but it makes your face feel like silk. So yeah, we're pretty stoked on Verso.
The first step in achieving baby soft skin and the only product not containing the Retinol 8 formula, it gently removes makeup and impurities without disrupting your skins protective function and leaves it feeling translucent, clean, and uber soft.
This one's for your morning routine. Along with Vitamin B3 helping your skin's luminosity (that healthy glow we all strive for), the Day Cream also contains sun filters that help protect against premature aging and the Retinol 8 formula works to activate your skin's natural production of collagen.
You guessed it, the Night Cream is for your bedtime routine. The main function here (in addition to also boosting your natural collagen production) is to calm and soothe your skin from the day - like a stress reliever for your skin. It also contains anti-oxidants from oats to protect from future damage.
SUPER FACIAL SERUM
Though it's technically No.4 in the series, this serum a.k.a. the holy grail of product, is meant to be used before applying the Day Cream and/or Night Cream. It contains the most Retinol 8 formula for max anti-aging and with regular use, helps to brighten skin, reduce wrinkles and dark spots, and improve your skin's overall texture. Seriously - holy grail.
SUPER EYE SERUM
Specifically designed for the sensitivity of the eye area, this refreshing and gentle serum contains particular amino acids that help diminish puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines in addition to the collagen boosting Retinol 8.
INTENSE FACIAL MASK
Together with Grapefruit extract, Centella Asiatica, Ceramide-3, and Canola oil, this moisturizing hydrogel mask makes your skin appear softer and firmer. The unique hydrogel technology allows the Retinol 8 and other activates to penetrate the skin for upto 30 hours of hydration.
DEEP HYDRATION MASK
This hydrogel mask contains a patented Artificial Moisturizing Factor (AMF of a different kind) that supports the skin's ability to retain moisture and therefore provides.. drum roll.. upto 120 frickin' hours of hydration. The mask also contains Sodium Hyaluronate, Grapefruit extract and Ceramide-3 to further support the AMF and give you the most soft, hydrated, and smooth skin you've ever had.
(this is the product that really sold me on the line - seriously the most moisturized and soft feeling my sahara desert skin has ever felt)
REVIVING EYE MASK
Essentially this is the eye version of the Intense Facial Mask. Same great activates to soften, smooth, and brighten, but formulated specifically for the sensitivity of the eye area. If your main concern is your eye area, then this bad boy is all you need in the mask department!
