I was asked to review the Vered Anti-Aging Face Treatment Oil
($118) and the Vered Anti-Wrinkle Eye Treatment
($68). I used both oils for several weeks. I traded off with the facial oils I normally use so that I’d get a good comparison. The description on the Vered website for the Anti-Aging Face Treatment says the following about the face oil: Herb-infused oil that is extremely high in antioxidants, therapeutic essential oils, and omega fatty acids. It is highly nourishing for normal, dehydrated, mature or dull skin. The oils used in the formula are all “therapeutic-grade” essential oils and organic herbs. The description on the Vered website for the Anti-Wrinkle Eye Treatment says the following about the eye treatment: Effective for dry, mature, sensitive or UV-damaged skin. The oils had a lovely, earthy scent probably due to the primrose, rosewood, jasmine and vanilla that are in the mix of the facial oil, and the lavender and rose in the eye treatment. The color is golden and the consistency is not too thick. I used them mostly at night but a few times during the day as well.
I am 54 with now dry skin, and have taken pretty good care of it since I was a teen (though I grew up on the shore, so I had too much sun time). I have only a few wrinkles and am told that I do not look my age, but I definitely don’t have the elasticity I used to. Something I look for with skin treatments is to wake up in the morning or after a full day and have my face feel moisturized and supple, and to avoid the “oh my!” feeling when I look in the mirror.
The Vered oils did a pretty good job. They are not inexpensive so I actually expected more. My face was soft to the touch and felt hydrated on the surface but I can’t say the oils “wowed” me. I try to use products with healthful ingredients that are as organic as possible, which the Vered oils are. I have been using my own mixture of essential oils for years (both on my face and body), I and didn’t see or feel much difference when using Vered’s. I am always looking for great skincare, but for me the Vered products are not worth the expense when there are many other organic options to choose from.
