About this item

Highlights

  • Micro-encapsulated retinol and natural retinol alternatives refine skin texture
  • Retinol results without retinol irritation
  • Creamy yet light texture absorbs seamlessly into skin
  • Made for aging, dullness (like dark spots), and problem skin, including acne and clogged pores.
  • Non-toxic, vegan, sustainably-minded
  • Safe for sensitive skin
  • Dermatologist tested
  • Packaging made with 50% PCR (post consumer recycled) plastic

Description

What It Is: A lightweight, creamy retexturizing serum specifically formulated for sensitive skin and first-time retinol users. Encapsulated retinol and naturally-derived botanical retinol alternatives (like bakuchiol) team up with anti-inflammatory antioxidants to deliver retinol results without traditional retinol side effects. It's a non-irritating and effective nightly treatment that reforms skin texture (softening lines and wrinkles) and refines skin tone while boosting collagen production to keep pores clear.

Packaging contains recycled content - 50% PCR (post-consumer recycled) plastic bottle.

How To Use: Smooth 2 pumps into clean, almost-dry skin on face and neck. Bonus points for chest. Let it sink in for 1 minute before your next skincare step. Use in the PM after cleansing, alone or between lighter serums and moisturizer.

How To Recycle: Remove the cap, break off the pump, and toss the pump in your trash can. Remove the inner piece that houses the formula, reattach the cap, and toss the empty, capped bottle in your recycling bin.*
*Before you toss anything in your recycling bin, check if the local curbside recycling program for your zip code accepts plastic items that look like this packaging. If it doesn't, recycle it through the Versed Recycle Responsibly Program by visiting versedskin.com/no-waste.

Q: does this help with dark circles?

submitted by laurenp - 2 years ago

Q: Is this a good retinol for a beginner? My research says one should start with a low percentage of retinol. I understand this is a combination of encapsulated retinol and retinol alternatives.

submitted by Xavier - 2 years ago
  • A: Hello Xavier, the Versed Press Restart Gentle Retinol Serum is gentle for retinol beginners since it is packed with natural retinol alternatives to refine skin texture.

Q: Can this Press Restart serum be used in conjunction with the Recovery Mode Advanced Night Cream?

submitted by mekennay - 2 years ago
  • A: Hi Mekennay, Thanks for reaching out! You can use Auto-Save in the morning and layer Recovery Mode over Press Restart at night. Since Auto-Save contains vitamin C, it cannot be used at the same time as retinol in a skincare routine. I hope this helps :)

I have sensitive rosacea prone skin and have been looking for a retinol product my skin can handle. I used this once per week for 3 weeks, gently washing and then moisturizing my face before applying 1 drop of this. Better skin texture but tomato faced for two days post. Will probably move to every other week, and add moisturizer to the PressRestart as well as applying the moisturizer before.

i’d been using the sunscreen for two months attempting to figure out how to get rid of the white cast…if you have a deep skin tone, potentially reconsider. also, depending on prior skin care steps, the product balls up

This is the first sunscreen I've ever tried that doesn't make my eyes sting — and I've tried * a lot* of sunscreens (and many of them were waaaayyy more expensive than this!). It's cruelty-free, sinks into my skin nicely, and it dries to a matte finish so I'm not walking around all day looking weirdly glossy. I'm sensitive to smells but this doesn't have any scent — not even a sunscreen-y one! It can be a tiny bit drying on my nose and around my lower lip, but I'm prone to being dry in those places anyway so I just slather on moisturizer before I apply the sunscreen and I'm good to go. 10/10!

I've used this every night and have MAYBE only noticed clean pores. Hasn't done anything else for my skin and I'm not even sure I can give credit to this product for the clean pores.

I had a terrible reaction after using this sunscreen twice. My face is red, swollen and covered in little bumps. On top of that it burns and stings! I’ve never had this reaction to a mineral sunscreen before. Not sure what ingredient is to blame but avoid this one if you have sensitive skin.

I've purchased a dozen different high-end sunscreens looking for the perfect formula and this is definitely it. Everything else I've tried leaves me red, greasy or just sits on top of my skin leaving it tacky to the touch. I have a light-medium skin tone and this product completely disappears on my skin. It doesn't leave my face shiny and if I wait just two or three minutes after applying it is dry enough to put on my makeup.

No hyaluronic acid version please!

Please make a version of this with no sodium hyaluronate/hyaluronic acid. It is a big trigger for some. Glycerin or panthenol are bettter options! Hyaluronic acid can actually make rosacea and other skin problems worse. There is a whole demographic you could tap into by making a version without hyaluronic acid!

This stuff is the best! I was always bad about using SPF because of the feel of it on my skin but once I discovered Versed’s SPF, I never go a day without it! It blends in nicely and I love the new larger size tube.

worst breakouts i've ever had

gsauce - 8 months ago, Verified purchaser
i have a long history with acne (very oily, acne-prone), have been on topical meds, then accutane, and it was so clear for a while. then i started seeing more bumps than i preferred (about one a week), so i thought i'd try retinol. i tried this in combo with another product, and ended up with tons of whiteheads, pustules, and some cystic acne around my mouth, jaw, and smile lines. i thought it was from the other product, though when i ran out of this retinol i didn't rebuy just in case. i stopped with both around the same time, and though my skin got better, it remained acne prone in those areas, more so than before. this was a year ago. i then used adapalene gel for a while, which worked, but recently i wanted to opt for something more gentle. i tried this again, and got the same horrible breakouts. sad bc i like versed as a brand. be cautious if you're acne prone.

I’m on the fence about this product. Retinols tend to be harsh on the skin, and while this one is marketed as “gentle,” adhering to the directions is still important. Even in doing so, I found that the serum irritated the more sensitive parts of my face, and I don’t have particularly sensitive skin. I like incorporating it into my routine on occasion still, but be very wary of overuse. I do notice a positive effect when used sparingly, but I don’t think it’s something I personally would be able to use really regularly at all.
