If you’re looking for a chic and consciously crafted beauty brand that delivers results and won’t cost you a small fortune, look no further than Versed.
Since the brand’s launch in 2019, it’s quickly become one of our favorites, with standouts like Guards Up, a mineral sunscreen (and PureWow 100 winner) and Instant Gratification, a newly launched and aptly named dermaplaning tool.
It’s a quick fix for dull skin that’s ideal for folks who have always wanted to try dermaplaning but have been deterred by the price of in-office treatments or other devices.
The handy little tool swiftly removes dead skin cells and peach fuzz from your face, so you get professional-grade exfoliation (and a post-facial glow) from the comfort of your bathroom—for just 20 dollars.
Each pack comes with two sterile, stainless steel blades that can be reused up to four times, and a reusable metal handle that’s easy to grip and maneuver around the contours of your face. There are also built-in safety features like rounded corners on the blade (so you don’t have to worry about any exposed edges) and a clear cap for easy storage and added protection when the tool isn’t in use.
Speaking of use, that part is fairly straightforward, too.
Start by washing and drying your face. Then, hold the tool in one hand like a pen, placing your index finger near the top of the handle just underneath the blade. Use your other hand to hold your skin taut, and gently guide the blade down your cheeks, forehead, upper lip and chin, moving the blade in short, downward strokes. (Skip your nose and suck in your lips when you’re working in that area.)
When you’re done, simply wipe the blade clean and apply your serum of choice to finish. Without the barrier of dead skin cells and facial hair there, your skin is primed for optimal absorption of your products. Not to mention, the exfoliation itself means a smoother and brighter complexion overall.
Instant gratification, indeed.
