This retinol cream is designed for use on the eye area and any where else on the face. It is suggest that you use it morning and night, but you can also just use it at night. I used this for four days morning and night. Sadly, I have not had a good experience with this.
I only used it under my eyes since I have some some wrinkles that really bother me. I deiced to use it twice a day since it would probably be more effective. I think I should have only used it once a day since this is a retinol cream and I have no previous experience with retinol. I used this on the first four days without a problem. On the fifth day, I awoke like any other day and proceeded to wash my face. When I washed my face, I noticed that the area around my eye would sting every time I even touched it. When I dried my face, I saw that my area was very red and irritated. That area become incresingly more painful throughout the day and it even started to peel and look flaky. Not only that, but my small wrinkles looked worse.
I should have been more careful in using this type of cream. I guess my eye area is more sensitive than I thought. I don't blame the cream, but rather my own judgement. Retinols can cause redness, irritation, and peeling and I should have had that in mind. I will give this another try once my under eye area is normalized. I might just use this every other day at night to make sure I don't over do it.
