    Sorry. I should have said a bit more. Looking for a good eye cream for dryness and wrinkles that are starting to form around the eye.

    The only product that has been proven to do anything for wrinkles is Retin-A. I use it around my eyes (whole face actually), and it does work. R-A doesn't do anything for dryness though...in fact it causes more dryness.

    RCW -- have you ever tried Renova (I haven't)? I've read that Renove is like Retin-A for "mature" skin, and not as drying as Retin-A.

    I am still using Avene's Retrinal -- haven't gotten around to trying to get a Rx for Renova yet. I am finding out that our pharmacy coverage is not so great, so I may wait until next year to see about Renova.

    I don't personally use Renova, because I'm acne-prone. Renova is Retin-A that has been super-fatted so as not to be as drying. It is very nice for non-acne-prone dry-skin types.

    My Rx coverage is crappy too, so I buy my Retin-A from Medsmex.com. They carry Renova also.

    Non-Rx retinols do absolutely nothing active for the skin.
