Affordable Exfoliants, eye cream, and retinol

I’d like to start skin cycling - because of my acne prone/sensitive skin, specifically:

Night 1 - exfoliant

Night 2 - retinol

Night 3-5 - recovery

I would love recommendations on an exfoliant, retinol, and night cream for these steps. I plan to use my niacimide b-jo serum on recovery nights, as well as regularly use my argirline drops for my eyes. Also looking for a great eye cream!

For a retinol / retinoid product, one of these could work well:

- https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/indeed-labs-retinol-reface-retinol-skin-resurfacer (a potent retinoid active HPR in a minimalist formulation with peptides)

- https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/paulas-choice-0-3-retinol-2-bakuchiol-treatment (medium concentration of retinol + bakuchiol)

For an exfoliant, I'd go for a product with PHAs to keep it gentle and also help with the hydration, for example: https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/naturium-pha-topical-acid-12
