The first one I'll talk about is the La Deessa 2.5% Retinol Anti-Aging Elixir. Here is a quick product description from the company:

It is fragrance free but I can smell a super subtle aloe vera-like scent which can be because this is a plant-based product.
The La Deessa 2.5% Retinol glides on smoothly and I like that it's gentle. It didn't cause any irritation or redness on my skin and didn't cause any peeling as well. I use this daily at night, together with the La Deessa Vitamin C Serum and the La Deessa Eye Serum and I love that they work well together.
After using this for about 2 weeks, I noticed a difference on my skin's tone, which became more even than before. I also like that this didn't cause my any breakouts. This serum also helped brighten my complexion which is a bit dull this couple of weeks. Maybe it's because of the warm temperature but I'm glad this helped with that.
It's easy to use and less than 1 pump is all I need per application. A little goes a long way so this bottle will last me more than a month.
