If you're a beauty fan, you've probably noticed a little brand called Versed Skincare and its super chic, colorful packaging popping up on social media lately.
Describing themselves as "the cleanest drugstore skincare brand" its mission is to bring affordable, results-driven skincare to the masses while remaining sustainable at its heart. All products are vegan and cruelty-free, too.
