Is SPF needed with this product?
With the Algenist Firming & Lifting Serum for the face, one is supposed to use it only at night, and due to the retinol in it, one is supposed to use SPF over the face during the day because it makes the skin sensitive to the sun. Is this product supposed to be treated in the same way? It says it is to be used in both the AM and the PM. If SPF is needed with the eye gel, what would you recommend as an SPF day treatment for the eye area?

Shiseido makes an eye cream with SPF 32 that would do the trick!!! It is the only SPF eye cream that we carry at our Sephora:) I have used it on vacation and it works marvelous:)

You should wear an SPF every day no matter what products you use. That is the best anti-aging product available. If you don't require a heavy moisturizer, I recommend the Algenist SPF lotion.
According to Algenist (I called them), this serum is gentle enough to use twice a day. I have not come across a sunscreen for the eye area (doesn't mean they don't exist), probably because sunscreens generally require ingredients too strong for the eye area. You should always wear quality sunglasses when outside.
