Verso Super Eye Serum - review


I've been using this eye serum for over a month now and I want to review it before I finish the tube.

You may remember that I introduced it a while ago as part of one of my larger samples posts, although I've been using it for over a month because it took me a while to get that post up - so I'm definitely ready to give you my thoughts.

And what I think is this: it hasn't done anything amazing for me and I can't use it alone because it's not hydrating enough, so I have to wear it beneath a good eye cream - which makes it somewhat redundant.

This means it's not the right product for me and I can't recommend it, and do note that the reviews on Mecca's website are hit-and-miss so I'm not the only person who would say that. More on that below.

Verso claims/product details:

  • This firming and smoothing super eye serum with Retinol 8 complex is a light and refreshing serum that's designed for the sensitive eye area
  • Helps to increase the skin’s natural production of collagen, reversing the visible signs of ageing
  • Formulated with specific amino acids that will diminish the look of eye puffiness, dark circles and lines
  • The fifth step in the Verso Skincare regime, gently pat around the eyes morning and evening
  • RRP $130 AUD for 30ml


This product isn't awful but it hasn't done anything for me and it's not hydrating enough so I wouldn't buy it. I think it's also worth noting that quite a few people have said that this stings their eyes, and while I haven't had that experience, I agree with those who've said that it dries their eyes out.

It's a thin product that comes out looking like a gel/cream hybrid but it does melt and spread more like a watery serum when applied. But although it sounds like a little would go a long way, I do find that I need to use more of this than I do regular eye creams because it's so thin that it vanishes very quickly into my skin, so I need to use enough to ensure that my whole eye area is covered.

To start with I was using this twice-daily by itself as my only eye product, but I found that within three days, my eye area had dried out and become more wrinkly. It also felt more uncomfortable and I looked older (especially when I tried applying eyeshadow), so I had to introduce an eye cream over the top to manage that issue.

I've since been using it twice-daily for over a month, and I've found that it hasn't done anything for me. It doesn't hydrate (and it's still drying out my eye area), plus I haven't noticed any of the kinds of benefits that you'd expect to experience when using a retinol. That is, it's done nothing for my fine lines or pigmentation like age spots.

Also, I wanted to comment briefly on the burning that many people have experienced when using this product. Some note that it has burnt their eye area and turned it red, while causing it to puff up and become irritated and unhappy. I haven't had that experience, but I wanted to mention it because it's happened to enough people that I suggest being careful with this product. So do test it before purchase because it'd be crap to spend $130 on something that you then can't use.

On the claims: no it's not firming or smoothing; yes it's light but I don't think it's refreshing; no it hasn't reversed my visible signs of ageing; and no it's done nothing for eye puffiness, dark circles or lines.

Overall I don't like this product and I can't recommend it. It hasn't done anything for me and it's not hydrating enough to use on its own, and I would tread carefully with it because so many people have had a bad reaction to it.

Does nothing for me.
