Aqua A Retinoid Renewing Serum
“Wow. Leahlani made the most incredible retinol serum. I just can't get enough of it. It's gentle and effective.”
Revitalize, tone and protect with Leahlani Aqua A Retinoid Renewing Serum. A powerful blend of skin actives and potent botanicals to bring youthful vitality into the skin. Aqua A is formulated with low-irritation HPR retinoids, which have been proven to be just as effective but non-sensitizing, to promote cellular turnover – smoothing fine lines and wrinkles while giving skin a glow from within. Aqua A is supported by plumping ceramides to help strengthen the skin barrier and boost elasticity while a potent cocktail of botanical antioxidants like superfood spirulina and green caviar oil help to firm, tone and protect.
Beauty Heroes featured Leahlani Aqua A as our February 2023 Hero product and our first to feature HPR retinoid, a gentle, stable, bioavailable form of vitamin A that works on contact to blur fine lines, slow wrinkle formation and boost the appearance of collagen and elastin while you sleep. Aqua A Retinoid Renewing Serum features hydroxypinacolone retinoate (HPR), a unique derivative of retinoic acid that directly binds to the retinoid receptors in our skin without the metabolic breakdown process that other forms of retinoid require. Simply put, this active gets to work immediately and effectively without causing irritation, inflammation and sensitivity often experienced with other retinoids.
Plumping ceramides and an amino acid-rich blend of spirulina and green caviar oil conditions and revitalizes the skin while decreasing signs of inflammation and photoaging. Finally, a cocktail of three marine superfoods give Aqua A its namesake color unique color: blue spirulina, blue tansy, and rainforest blue essential oil.
For uninterrupted complexion renewal, Aqua A is best used at night, during skin’s natural renewal cycle.
HOW TO USE IT
Apply an even layer to dry, freshly cleansed skin at night only. Wait 1-2 minutes and follow with your evening moisturizer if desired.
While Aqua A is formulated with low-irritation HPR retinoids, all retinol products may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun so don’t forget your daily SPF.
If you are new to Aqua A, start by applying every other night for the first few weeks to see how your skin acclimates before building up to daily use. Consistent use of Aqua A for 6-8 weeks is recommended to see results.

ABOUT THIS BRANDWhen her brother handed her a one-way ticket to Kauai for her 21st birthday, Leah Klasovsky knew it was the perfect place to relax and reset her body, mind, and spirit. What she didn't know was that Hawaii would offer her a fresh start, opening her eyes and heart to a world of beauty and possibility she had never imagined for herself. On the night she arrived, the island air wrapped her in a tropical, balmy hug. The morning light revealed lush mountain terrain, exotic wildlife, and blooming flora. She instantly felt that this new home was her healing sanctuary, and she decided to stay. Leah's path to creating Leahlani was paved with physical breakdowns and spiritual breakthroughs, but it was her instinctive decision to enroll in a holistic Esthetics program on Maui that gave her the foundational training she needed to bottle her passion and create a name for herself.
BEST product in my entire skincare regimen ...
I will never be without this product …. and I work in the beauty/skincare industry and have access to all of the best brands out there. This is now my #1 go-to product. I have never used a retinol product in this super hydrating serum-format, and it has completely improved my skin in less than 20 days of use. My skin tone looks more even and overall, so much brighter. Not only is it NOT drying out my skin like many retinol type products can do, it has tremendous moisture and feels no different than an oil (and, not greasy either).
WOW- Aqua A is what I have been needing and waiting for! The texture is so beautiful, and my skin is in love. I am so happy to see retinoid options that deliver results without irritating or drying out your skin! If your hesitant on this product, just give it a try and you will see for yourself.
Love Aqua A!
I am no stranger to retinol products - both traditional retinols, clean beauty retinols and the Phyto-retinol alternatives and I love Aqua A. It's incredibly results oriented but I love the simplicity of an oil based retinol. This is great for anyone with drier skin that might shy away from the drying effects of many retinol products. I would put this up against a conventional retinol any day but without the fuss. Highly recommend.
OMG - it smells like heaven
Wow. Leahlani made the most incredible retinol serum. I just can't get enough of it. It's gentle and effective, but it also just smells so good. In love love love.
