The first one is a Monadenium (Euphorbia) Ritchiei

The second one looks like an Othonna Triplinervia, but for the glossy leaves ...

agree for monadenium ritchiei,
for the second I suggest a young Adenium (obesum) grown from seed

I agree, #1 Monadenium (Euphorbia ritchiei)

I also think #2 is Adenium; check out these Adenium leaves for comparison:
