I'm 39 with fairly unlined skin but I do have fine lines under my eyes. I am using retin a on my forehead lines (no difference yet) can you use it under the eyes. Does anyone do it? I'm scared to try

I did with the Neutrogena rapid eye cream and had a reaction to it. sad Happy to send anyone the rest of the tube if they get on better with it!

Yes I use it under my eyes with no problems. I built up to this though very slowly. Once my face tolerated it well without too much peeling I began extending the application to the under eye area. No issues at all with it (but it also hasn't made my wrinkles disappear!)

Yes I do. I haven't had a problem with it.

Yep, had no problems.

Ok thanks, a few positive responses, for those who haven't had a reaction have you noticed an improvement in lines?

Nope. That's what Botox is for :-)

It takes over six months for it to start to work on lines.

I use it around my eyes - up to the lower lash line, but as others have said, I built up to it really slowly. Are you all using it on your neck too?
