Retinol is something you definitely need in your skincare regimen. It is the workhorse of skincare ingredients. But often many people cannot use a regular strength retinol near their eye area, as the skin around the eyes is very thin and sensitive. The best thing to do in this situation is to use a separate retinol eye cream or eye gel. Luckily, The Inkey List makes a fabulous Retinol Eye Cream that is not only great but extremely affordable too. 

The Inkey List Retinol Eye Cream is recommended for anyone of the age 25 years and up because unfortunately that is when fine lines start to show around the eyes. I can back this claim up because I experienced this myself and started to use a great retinol eye cream to treat them at that age and my lines disappeared. I will be 50 next month and do not have any lines around my eyes nor any crow's feet yet! This Retinol Eye Cream is best for those first signs of aging around the eyes, is formulated for all skin types and helps to reduce fine line and wrinkles. It is to be used only in the PM. The great thing about this cream is that it gives extra support to your most fragile skin around the eye area without causing any irritation, having been formulated with a slow release retinol (Vitamin A derivative). This has been shown to support natural collagen production, while being gentle enough to use around the eye area (unlike the majority of facial retinol creams). The key ingredient in this cream is Vitalease™ (Retinol), which is a stabilized retinoid compound that is a slow-release formula that helps to avoid irritation often associated with retinoids. It also contains the humectants glycerin, butylene glycol and sodium hyaluronate, which will help draw moisture into the skin and to the undereye area. Shea butter also helps to moisturize the skin. Sunflower seed oil (helianthus annuus seed oil) acts as an emollient to help moisturize the under eye skin. Tocopherol (Vitamin E) is an antioxidant and also helps to moisturize the skin. Finally, humulus lupulus extract acts as an emollient and an skin soothing agent. 

To use, apply in the PM to cleansed skin after applying your serums. This is a thick, rich yet lightweight white eye cream and should go on towards the end of the skincare regimen. Apply a small amount onto finger and pat around the contour of the eye area. Follow with moisturizer. Start off using it 1-2 times per week and increase depending on your skin's tolerance. Can also be used to target lines around the mouth, avoiding the lips. This product may increase skin's sensitivity to the sun. It is highly recommended that you wear a sunscreen during the day around the face and eye area. This is especially important because if you do not you will be undoing any work that the retinol is actually doing and you can cause more photoaging of the skin. 

Personally, my eyes can handle retinol and I had been using a stronger one from The Ordinary but wanted to try this one out to see how is compares. I like this one, it does not cause any irritation and definitely works well from an ingredient standpoint. Because it is very moisturizing and it has the time release formula in it, I would recommend this for any skin type, including acneic skins (because it is only going on the eye area). This might be something that mature skins with fine lines and wrinkles already developed will not benefit from, as it is recommended for those who are beginning to see signs of aging. If you are young, say in your early 20's, start using a retinol eye cream now. I am dead serious on this. It will prevent any future lines and wrinkles from forming and your skin will still look fabulous at 50. Trust me on this. I am turning 50 next month and my skin looks pretty darn good. That is because I have taken care of it. Retinol is the way. It is one of the main gateways we have to finer looking skin and I would use it ASAP. Even in your teens (as soon as you can). I think you will be happy with the results!
