About Versed Skin Care

Skin's complicated, skincare shouldn't be - Versed

Versed Skincare is a drugstore, vegan, cruelty-free, and "clean" skin care brand for all. It is driven by a team of skin experts leading a community of millions around the world. Versed aims to make skincare easy, affordable, and available to all.

Founded by Katherine Power, a jack-of-all-trades, she is a prolific consumer-brand builder. The American fashion entrepreneur who is the co-founder of L.A-based Clique Brands. Under Clique,  Power co-founded the blog and fashion brand Who What Wear and now, Versed Skincare.

We were constantly hearing from our community about their confusion and discouragement when it came to their skincare routines—including too much guesswork about what will work for them, too-high price points, and not enough clean options that are easily accessible to them. With that foresight, Versed begins and ends with our community—listening and working with them in lockstep over the past 18 months and pairing our data with product development to solve that problem.- Katherine Power, Versed Founder & CEO.

Keeping Environmental Accountability at the top of their priority list, Versed provides a detailed Recycling Guide to follow how-to recycle their jars, tubes, and bottles properly. Versed keeps its promise to a cleaner planet with low-waste packaging, biodegradable shippers, and eco-conscious manufacturing.

The official Versed online shop is a hub of resources to help get you started with Versed skincare, too. If you're unsure which products suit you the best, use their Skin Decoder Quiz to help set you up with a Versed Skin regimen. They also offer a very helpful Ingredient Glossary, plus a unique Skin Hotline where you can text them at this number: 1-863-837-4222 for skin answers on demand.  

From Store Shelves to Your Shelves

Typically, a new skin care brand will come out with a few products to test in the market. The cool thing about Versed is that they launched with a large variety of products. Oh my goodness, there are so many products to scroll through online! Or, the next time you visit your local drugstore or Target, you'll be in the beauty aisle for ages.

The brand is a pretty sight for sore eyes with its colorful pastel packaging. It's basically jumping off the shelves and into your carts! Along with millennial packaging, Versed products' names make them ever so charming—like the Stroke of Brilliance Brightening Serum and the Baby Cheeks Hydrating Milk.

In an interview with the Who What Wear blogging staff, Katherine Power was asked what she uses from her own skin care line. Power highlighted some Versed products she cannot live without nowadays. Check them out!

Wash It Out Gel Cleanser

"Wash It Out is my daily morning go-to cleanser. I keep it in my shower, and because it's a very generous size, it's great for sharing. It's a gel cleanser, and I love that it leaves my skin clean but not tight."

Made with rosewater, mint, apple amino acids, and seaweed extract—you can expect a gentle yet effective wash from this gel cleanser.

Price: $12.99

Stroke of Brilliance Brightening Serum

"I love this serum for the results, meaning I can actually see them. It evens out the texture of my skin, makes it smoother, and creates a healthy glow. I use it every morning after cleansing and before moisturizing."

The Stroke of Brilliance Brightening Serum helps aid signs of aging (cough dullness cough). It features hyper-pigmentation-fighting plant extracts and antioxidants such as vitamin C, licorice root, red algae extract, and niacinamide to brighten your skin.

Price: $19.99

Day Dissolve Cleansing Balm

"This cleansing balm is special because it's such an experience. Even just the smell and the ritual of using it creates a spa-like and unique feel. I use it on days I wear more makeup because it takes everything off with practically zero effort."

Day Dissolve Cleansing Balm's spa scented notes waft from the eucalyptus and clove leaf oils. Plus,  combined with vitamin E, jojoba, and avocado oil, this balm makes the perfect pitch to be your new go-to product to wash the day away!

Price: $17.99

The Shortcut Overnight Facial Peel

"This is my favorite nighttime product. It's an overnight peel that I use every night, and because it's so gentle, I can still use it with zero irritation. I just wash my face and apply a generous amount before leaving it on for the night. The results are amazing, and I wake up with improved texture and smoothness, and my dull skin looks instantly brighter."

This leave-on exfoliator keeps your skin bright with the blend of lactic and glycolic acid (which work together to break down dead skin cells) and vitamin A (one of the most powerful and proven anti-aging ingredients available). While skin-conditioning, allantoin, rosehip, and vitamin E keep skin calm and moisturized.

Price: $19.99

Photos, Please Brightening Tightening Mask

"I use our Photos, Please Brightening Tightening Mask once a month for a quick boost. It makes my skin feel smoother, more even in texture, and brighter. I love our whole brightening line."

You can rely on turmeric extract, red kaolin clay, and witch Hazel to keep your skin away from those dull phases with their brightening properties! It's compact packing also lets you take this treatment everywhere you go.

Price: $9.99

Find Clarity Purifying Mask

"The Find Clarity Purifying Mask leaves skin feeling cleaner and tighter. I put it on my T-zone when I'm looking to minimize my pores. In general, the overnight peel, the brightening serum, and the masks all create a visible difference in my skin."

This acne-clearing mask is made with two types of clay and two charcoal types to detoxify—and not dry out—your skin. The clays, kaolin, and bentonite mildly exfoliate your skin to remove dead skin cells and sop up excess sebum and oil. The charcoals—binchotan white charcoal and bamboo—act as a magnet to attract toxins and draw impurities out of the skin.
