Cameron Diaz once told Goop she uses just three skin-care products: a face oil, goop Beauty’s Microderm Instant Glow Exfoliator ($125) and “a retinol from Versed.” Diaz was referring to the drugstore brand’s Press Restart Gentle Retinol Serum, a cream-based retinol serum specifically formulated for sensitive skin and first-time retinol users. And while it’s available in two sizes, the larger 2oz tube is on sale right now for just $35.

Retinol is one of the most well-known, dermatologist-recommended skin-care ingredients for a reason. The skin-care superhero addresses fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, acne, discoloration and dullness. However, depending on usage and strength, it also has a reputation of being harsh and irritating. Versed’s Gentle Retinol Serum is different. This formula blends microencapsulated retinol, natural retinol alternatives bakuchiol and arophira, antioxidants, shea butter and anti-inflammatories for a clear, soothed, and plumper-looking complexion.

Like other retinol treatments, the Gentle Retinol Serum speeds up cell turnover. To protect those fresh, new cells, wear SPF daily.

Shoppers with sensitive skin say the serum makes skin “velvety soft,” “smooth,” “hydrated” and “cushiony” with “no irritation at all.” A reviewer wrote it makes “rosacea less noticeable.” Another said “it has consistently helped with healing and preventing acne” and “overall skin texture.” After a few weeks of use, one person said the skin around their eyes looked “younger,” and a second reported they “wake up totally glowing.” Finally, a user went so far as to say “it works as well as [their] low strength prescription from [their] dermatologist.”

If you’re looking to start a retinol and have dry and/or sensitive skin, or are just looking for a gentle, effective option, Versed’s Press Restart Gentle Retinol Serum is unrivaled. The 2oz tube is on sale now for just $35—get it here.
