I'm 55 years old. I have previously used Retin A .05% cream with no problems at all, but it was a few years ago. Currently, I'm using Stieva-A tretinoin cream 0.1% every other night after I wash my face with a moisturizing goat soap. Then, I'm putting Eucerin Everyday Protection face lotion on top. I also use the Eucerin lotion in the morning; it is spf 30. If I'm going to be outside a lot, I also add Neutrogena SPF 85. My face is getting much dryer and redder than it did 10 years ago.

I'm using Retin A 0.1% and it seems a little too strong. I'd like to mix it with a moisturizer to lessen the potency. I already have 5 tubes of the 0.1% and don't want to purchase more. I'm using this for wrinkles. Can you please give specific brand names of moisturizers?
