Versed Physician Visit Instant Resurfacing Mask Review
i always hated identify my skin type, because the truth is, she has her own mind. My skin is constantly changing based on external factors (read: weather, pollution, and location). But some things that stay constant are the large pores visible on my nose – and the monthly period pimple you’ll see in my before and after, but that’s a whole different story. While I have come to terms with the fact that I will never be able to change the size of my pores (thank you genetics), that hasn’t stopped me from testing any products that claim to reduce their appearance in size. Of all the toners, serums, exfoliators, cleansers, and masks I’ve tried, however, nothing does the job like the Versed Doctor’s Visit Instant Resurfacing Mask ($ 18).
You could have seen Versed on TikTok by browsing your favorite skinfluencer page, but if you haven’t, it’s a vegan and cruelty-free skin care brand which offers affordable products. Case in point: this mask for less than $ 20 that literally transformed my skin. The formula is loaded with exfoliating ingredients such as lactic, glycolic and salicylic acids to remove dead cells from the skin’s surface, minimize the appearance of pores, and stimulate cell renewal. It also contains vitamin C for lightening.
Immediately after opening the product, I was obsessed with the bright yellow color and fun consistency of the jelly. The product claims to deliver professional quality results in two to three minutes, which made me skeptical at first. How long is it enough to treat my stubborn pores? The first time I used the product, I felt a slight tingling at first. While it has finally calmed down, I highly recommend getting a patch test before committing to a full-face application if you have sensitive skin. That being said, after setting off my three minute timer, I rinsed off the product with cold water and immediately noticed a difference on my skin. My pores seemed noticeably smaller and smoother, and my face had an overall glow – kudos to this vitamin C.
Because this is a tough mask with so many active ingredients, I followed up with gentle, moisturizing products including a hyaluronic acid serum, moisturizer, and facial mist. I have been using this product regularly once a week for the past month and every time I use it I am very impressed with the results. Between the affordable price, the quick application time and the result, I tell you: this mask does not disappoint.
