This Part of Your Skincare Routine Is Essential, and Most People Skip It
As you probably know by now, we’re true skincare heads over here. Our collection of lotions and potions is ever-evolving, as is our understanding of ingredient labels, sustainability practices, and the like. But that doesn’t mean we’ll give our undivided attention to just any product launch. As editors, it’s our duty to weed through the highly saturated skincare industry to pinpoint the most innovative takes on outdated ideations, find the most effective formulations, and above all, study the cost-benefit analysis of any product we put in front of our audience. (Okay, sometimes we’re suckers for cute packaging, too.) That’s why we were all ears when we learned our sister skincare brand, Versed, would be dropping two new game-changing toners that promise to remind you why this multi-purpose category of elixirs is such an integral part of any skincare routine.
The clean, vegan brand just launched its new go-to skin tonics—available now—which are formulated to cleanse, moisturize, balance, and brighten up our faces in just a few pumps. Enter Versed’s latest buzzy launches: Baby Cheeks All-in-One Hydrating Milk ($18) and Weekend Glow Daily Brightening Solution ($18).
If you struggle to remove your makeup in a way that’s both gentle and effective, need to clear debris from your pores to help them look less pronounced, or want to incorporate a gentle daily exfoliation to the mix, these two bottles of goodness should be at the forefront of your vanity. As per usual, the products leave out stripping, irritating, and toxic ingredients in favor of the good stuff your skin actually likes. Read on for the nitty-gritty.
