This is so scary. Started for acne flares (I'm 44 female) and derm winked and said hidden benefit is that helps with wrinkles. I was psyched!
Started 5 weeks ago. Read up that it's fine to use around eyes, so figured why not!

-My eye wrinkles have gotten so much worse. Bags, troughs, crepeiness
-Easily 10 years older in the course of a month.
I've read countless reviews.
Half say 'hang in there, it gets better and you'll be glad you did. '
The other half say 'quit immediately: irreparable damage that they wish they'd never have used in the first place.'
I really want to keep the faith and power through if this is a phase, I feel ridiculous for posting a repeating theme, but it's just so frustrating trying to assess the real TRUTH of Retin A!!!!??
Frankly, I'd rather deal with acne than looking Benjamin Button!
