What Is It:


A clarifying serum designed to remove impurities and manage excess pore-clogging sebum. The dynamic trio of willow bark extract, niacinamide, and a zinc blend work together to calm inflammation (the root of skin’s problems), decongest pores, and soothe redness, so breakouts become a thing of the past.


Our insight:


Filled with ingredients that offer multiple benefits, like niacinamide (with its clarifying and brightening powers) and willow bark extract (an anti-inflammatory and gentle exfoliator), this serum not only helps reduce existing trouble spots it prevents future ones keeping skin healthy.


How to use:


  • On the face and neck, press 2-3 drops into clean, almost dry skin. Let it sink in for two minutes before your next skincare move.
  • AM and/or PM after cleansing (and masking or toning) but before moisturizing. 


Ingredients:


Willow Bark Extract: This ingredient has been soothing irritation and inflammation for centuries. It is a natural BHA (beta hydroxy acid), meaning it gently exfoliates, helping to clear pores. It also rebalances oily and breakout-prone skin, minimizing shine without over-drying or irritation. Zinc: Helps prevent acne by regulating the activity of the oil glands and sebum production. It’s also an antioxidant powerhouse that helps fight and prevent free radical damage. Niacinamide: Aka vitamin B3, well known for brightening, minimizing the appearance of pores, improving uneven skin tone, and strengthening your skin’s overall surface. It’s also a skin-calming anti-inflammatory, which is why it’s perfect for fighting breakouts.

Versed is a brand that I had spoken about before and they are the cleanest drug store brand that I know of. They also recycle their own empty products, not a lot of brands do this. Versed uses proven and science backed ingredients which I do like. The formula is as clean as you can get. The Just Breathe Clarifying Serum got here just in time. I had been having so many hormonal break outs and the ingredients in this serum reduced my redness and also helped clear out the very stubborn breaks out along my jawline. The willow bark...

My career as an international certified make-up artist for over two decades has graced me to experience some amazing serums. However non of these serums have been formulated to treat the acne my skin often occurs when my pores are clogged. Versed Just Breathe Clarifying Serum does that, and so much more. The serum is formulated with willow bark extract, salicylic acid, seed extract, caffeine and zinc blend to name a few of the ingredients. Clogged pores need clarification, as well as a deep cleaning since this is exactly what leads to bumps caused by acne. This serum also... Read more

As a certified beauty blogger, I am frequently exposed to a variety of products, so I love it when a company explicitly states the goal of a product as well as the skin type that will benefit from it. Because I have relatively clean skin, the effects of the VERSED JUST BREATH clarifying serum astounded me. It's a layering product that you'll apply after you've cleansed (and mask). It clarifies, brightens, and simply allows the skin to breathe. Niacinamide is a common component we prescribe for balancing sebum production and addressing the problem of enlarged pores. Anyone who wants to... Read more

I received this product right amidst a breakout, so it came to me at just the right time. It has incredible ingredients. As a licensed aesthetician, the ingredient we often recommend for the balance of sebum production and for those looking to target the issue of enlarged pores is niacinamide. Anyone looking to reduce the appearance of their pores or to reduce blackheads and sebaceous filaments in their skin, absolutely needs this in their arsenal of skin care products. Niacinamide is just one of those core ingredients that’s going to deliver the results you need. This paired with their other... Read more

As an online influencer for over 8 years now I always look forward to trying new products! This Versed Just Breathe Clarifying Serum is designed to remove the days dirt and impurities while also managing your excess sebum production. I have combination skin so my face naturally produces more sebum than most. I’m always looking for something to control this. I love that it comes in a dropper style bottle which makes it easier to put the exact amount needed on my face. A little of this goes along way. Three drops is all it takes to go around my...

As an esthetician I’m always looking to add product recommendations to help excess oil production, congestion, breakouts, etc. This is exactly what the versed just breathe clarifying serum does and then some. It’s lightweight and not not sticky. Each of the key ingredients are phenomenal for the skin.

Willow bark is a versatile ingredient both anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, helps clearing pores and alleviating acne and irritation. Niacinamide and Zinc reduces inflammation, which may help ease redness from eczema, acne, and other inflammatory skin conditions. It also helps control oil production and minimize pores.

Since being back to work and wearing... Read more

My biggest battles are tackling blemishes from clogged pores and allergy breakouts. Some products make me break ou and leave me with dry patchy skin. I find with Versed products their products are gentle while repairing my skin no matter what kind of whacked out situation I have. If I have a bad breakout I will apply the clarifying serum to work its magic. During my nightly skincare routine I will apply the serum and focus on the areas that need the most help and by morning my skin looks clearer and brighter. I love waking up to see... Read more

Oh my goodness I cant tell you how much I love the Versed products, I still suffer from some adult acne and cystic acne. And I try to be conscious about my carbon footprint as well as clean products and ingredients. I also like to sometimes mix my this serum with Verse's brightening serum, just to get those potential dark spots that are caused by these blemishes. Also great because it has the current times in mind, some of us still wear masks. And this line and serum cater to this issue, with zinc and willow bark you know... Read more

I have known of the brand Versed for a little over a year and have tried a few of their products. I was so excited to have the chance to try this clarifying serum. I really love zinc in skincare because I feel that my skin responds really well. I am a makeup artist and have to wear my mask for long days of weddings and appointments. I love that this product is geared towards wearing a mask and even mentions mask wearing in the instructions. I followed instructions and put this on before a long day of wearing my... Read more
