Retinoids(prescription strength) are shockingkly harsh on the skin. I know. I tried a .5% cream for some fine lines appearing around my eyes and man o man, my face turned beet read and irritated beyond belief. I had to quit after about a week. I simply couldn't stand it any more. It was like having a bad case of poison Ivy around my eyes. It was that raw and swollen.

Thanks for the information. I agree with Kath-- it makes no sense to airbrush all the wrinkles out of a model such as Diane Keaton or Andie McDowell when they are trying to sell a wrinkle cream. We have all earned our wrinkles, some more than others.
