Can you put retinol under your eyes?

If you’re wondering whether you can put retinol under your eyes, the answer is yes! While the skin under your eyes is delicate and requires extra attention, using the correct retinol-infused eye care products under your eyes is a great way to tackle eye bags, wrinkles and dark circles.

Since retinol targets the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet, it’s often recommended for mature skin. However, it’s also amazing for younger skin because it can help to slow down the signs of ageing! You’re never too young to use eye cream, darling!

Night-time is the best time to apply this well-loved skincare ingredient. That’s why it’s formulated in Charlotte’s Magic Eye Rescue and Magic Night Cream, two ESSENTIAL skincare products for your night-time skincare routine.
