The Serum and Night Cream have different ingredient lists. For example, first three for the serum are Water, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Hydrogenated Lecithin and first three for the night cream are Water, Glycerin, Butyrospermum Parkii Oil. Because of the different ingredients, the night cream is going to be more hydrating.

I would also assume that the serum has a higher concentration of retinol and other active ingredients than the night cream, which is what would increase the price per ounce.

The serum soaks in immediately and is not moisturizing. Use it before night cream. Night cream soaks in rapidly as well but is very moisturizing . Wash your face in the morning and apply the serum again for the best effect. If you want use a light moisturizer over the serum after it soaks in.

Question
I don't care of the price I want what works read below!
I've bought over 800.00 make up, you name it from this site online and in stores. I don't care what the cost is as long as it works! I read reviews and see 24-30 these products work great. But my concern is I am 47 starting to get wrinkles around my eyes and in the crease and some around my mouth. I am will to pay whatever for any products that really works instead of a sales pitch "like buy this lose weight" I want something and I only wear products from this site and have enough make up to last three people for life, some I know I;ll never use. But I want to reduce the fine lines before they get worse and stay looking young at 47. Please help! This is me at 47 in Dec and only buy and wear products from Sorphia or sold on this site. What do you recommend in any products you sell that will truly work to reduce fine lines in and around eyes and tighten whole face? Cheap products don't hold even with the eye Urban concealer, I'll never use any other make up, now that I own many of your products I am seeking fine lines and the cost is not an issue, working is and true to what it states. Please help!

This really works well for me. Go to the Versus skin care site and also look up the retinal used as not in any other line and is 8 times more effective than retinal with no side effects. I showed my dermatologist the product and he advised how good the line is. On my 3rd bottle of serum and I'm 60 with skin that still breaks out and this line has really helped. Still on first bottle of eye product. My skin looks as good as it can without lasers ! . Only objection is container as you can't see contents. Fashion mags have raved about.

NO, no - this stuff is VERY strong - don't use it around the eyes, it is too caustic and drying for eye-skin! Great if you want a strong retinol for your face, tho'! (But not for 'delicate' skin, or skin that doesn't genuinely have damage to undo ... this is a very strong retinol, unnecessarily strong as a 'preventive', in my view.)

you can try using the eye serum on the face, I did when waiting for more serum, I didn't notice any skin change? I suspect the products for face are stronger than eye.

The technology behind this product enables the formulation to have 1/8 the amount of retinol and be just as effective without the iiritation. The molecule they have patented, retinol 8, is what is in the product. It isn't pure retinol. I actually find it much better.

According to Verso's national educator, the Super Facial Serum has 0.1% Retinol 8 in it which is equivalent to 0.8% standard Retinol. Amazing!

I have mild to moderate rosacea and use this serum without problems. I honestly think it has improved my rosacea. However, I do not use it everday to avoid drying my skin out since my skin already tends to be dry due to the rosacea. I use 3x a week in the evenings before my moisturizer.

I started using this just after turning 30 and am in love. I also have very dry/sensitive skin and am acne-prone. This causes no reaction/redness and I use it every night. It's very gentle, and I've found it great for moisturizing my dry skin, healing active acne, and diminishing old acne scars. I hate paying this much for a skincare product. Hate. It. But for me the benefit is well worth it.

Question
For a retinol beginner--Verso Night Cream or Facial Serum?
I've never used retinol before, so I'm not sure if I should start with the facial serum or the night cream, or if it even matters? I've read in a below comment that the night cream is more moisturizing, but I already have moisturizers that I use. I read that a lot of people break out when they first begin using retinol--is there a difference in terms of strength between the night cream and serum? Thanks!

I personally never tried this one however I've used every face serum out there and found that I to break out with rentiol- I use the Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate serum, face cream with moisturizer, neck cream and the eye cream. It is very pricy cost me right at a grand but it actually works! I will be glad when Sephora carries this brand of Estee Lauder, I love shopping here as we can get most everything we want all in one place. I 1st started using the Estee Lauder CP+R and the Advanced Complex II night serum along with the day and night moisturizer. The day has SP in it, however I did use the night as it did seem to hold moisturizer better. This is the collection I now use, again pricy takes about 30 days to see great results worth every penny. So far in my second month and only used 1/3 of the products, it don't take much and it goes a long way. With this all you need, minus the neck cream, the serum works 5 times better and the face cream boost it off. Sephora please carry this line of Estee Lauder! The pic of me is on the board also of all the make-up I use as well. (Under this same picture)

Get the serum if you are specifically buying to add retinol to your routine. It has a higher concentration of retinol than the night cream. I would suggest starting off by using this 2x a week and then gradually working your way up to every day/every other day as your skin adjusts.

I have very sensitive, dry skin with rosacea and do not find the serum to be irritating or especially drying, but you may want to use a more moisturizng cream over the top, especially at first.

The info with this product seems to imply that it will make you less sun sensitive than other retinol products, but I still prefer to apply only at night and use day products containing sunscreen to be sure.
