The face-oil product, which is billed as being suitable for normal, dry, combination and oily skin, adds omega-rich virgin Marula oil to nourish skin, along with ceramides to strengthen the skin barrier. The protective ingredients work to minimize any skin reactivity while the vegan retinol does its work.

Free of essential oils, silicones and fragrances.

What we say: Our tester was excited to try this retinol product, thanks to its promise to deliver retinol results without any harsh effects.

Applied to the skin as directed—on freshly cleansed and dried skin—she started with evening applications followed by her normal moisturizer-and-sunscreen combination in the morning.

A few drops applied to skin provided full-face coverage and left skin feeling instantly hydrated. With use, she noticed her skin appeared more smooth and even, without any redness from the retinol. After a week, she incorporated the product into her daytime and nighttime routines thanks to the results sans sensitivity.

Where to get it: Sephora,

What it will cost you: $95.
