What It Is: In one step, this peel works overnight while you’re far away in dreamland to resurface and renew your complexion. The blend of lactic and glycolic acid (which work together to break down dead skin cells) and vitamin A (one of the most powerful and proven anti-aging ingredients available) exfoliates, brightens, and hydrates while skin-conditioning allantoin, rosehip, and vitamin E keep skin calm.
How To Use: Smooth a thin layer onto clean skin. Leave on overnight and cleanse in the AM per usual. Use 1-3 nights a week alone or, if you're particularly dry, after a lightweight, water-based hydrating serum.
How To Recycle: To recycle The Shortcut, remove the cap, cut the metal tube in half, remove any excess product, and toss the tube and paper box in your recycling bin.* Toss the cap in the trash. *Before you put anything in your recycling bin, check if the local recycling curbside program for your zip code accepts plastic items that look like our packaging. If they don’t, bring your items to the recycling station located at the front of every Target store.

Alright, I'm all about my skincare routine, but I also love a good shortcut that doesn't necessarily make my skin feel like I took a shortcut. I've used this a few times already. The glycolic acid is nice, because it really helps my skin texture. I have small bumps on my jawline that are annoying, but my skin feels softer after using this. I wish the tube was a bit bigger, but you don't need a ton to cover your whole face, so I'm hoping it lasts awhile.
I bought this a month ago and have been using it 2-3 times a week and I love how smooth it makes my skin. Glycolic acid has really helped with my skin texture and brightening! Follow my Instagram for more reviews @lifewithrimmi
I like this a lot, but I have experienced the container not being full all the way in multiple of their products. I felt significant air pockets in the packaging and it's already a small amount for the price (in my opinion.)
After so much hype around this brand, I decided to give it a try. This product in particular feels rich and creamy when you apply. However, after my first week of using it my skin feels like a lizard and it’s done nothing for me but break me out and make my skin feel itchy, and dry. I’m 30 with little to no acne, and my skin is combination. I have patches of raised red bumps now, almost like a rash, with one large super dry patch covering my nose and my cheek. This product just isn’t for me.
This is my favorite in the line so far. Absolutely saw a difference after one night! My skin was brighter and seems to be evening out just after a couple of weeks use. Looking forward to seeing long term results!!!
It’s the first Versed product I’ve tried and I must say I love it! I use it about three nights a week and it makes my skin look and feel so fantastic the next day. No burning sensations and absorbs quickly into my skin.
It feels a bit weird using this initially, as you have to skip toners/serums/moisturisers and just apply this to freshly cleansed skin. I was hesitant but it’s honestly great, my skin always feels super soft and looks almost exfoliated after sleeping in this. I love it and it’s a nice break from the full routine a few nights a week!
Maybe that's dramatic... but I cannot describe how amazed I am by this product. I was very skeptical at all the claims that this would work overnight, but I am here to tell you, it really, truly does. I first used this toward the tail end of my most recent hormonal breakout- my skin was looking dull, irritated, and my jawline was full of healing blemishes. Not expecting much, I put this on before bed, hoping it would at least reduce some of the redness on my zonked out skin by morning. When I woke up, I had forgotten I used it, and started washing my face- I paused, shocked, because upon touching my face I immediately noticed how smooth and soft my skin felt. I started examining every angle of chin, cheeks, and forehead because all my breakouts were gone (few very minor marks here and there) and my skin was completely soothed and looked fresh as a daisy! I've slowly started replacing my skincare routine with Versed products and they play really well together. This overnight treatment (The Shortcut) is no exception!
