Can I use this along with my prescription Tretenoin (Retin-A)?
I would like to find a mask that I can use every so often when I feel that my skin could use an extra "boost" - whether from extensive outdoor exposure (yes I use sunblock and also the Phototherapy when appropriate), travel, busy schedule or when I haven't had time to baby my skin for a couple of weeks. I do use Trentenoin nightly when I can, and when I'm too tired/busy for my regular treatment I will use Tretenoin with or without a moisturizer. So I don't want to use something that will be too strong.

This is fine to used with retinol. In fact with the hydration provided from the hyaluronic acid you'll probably want to used it over top more than just once a week. I use this every night over my retinol serum. It lasts a long time and 2 pumps covers my entire face and neck.
This might be a big much. I have used both chemical physician prescribed retin-A and bio rentinods. This product may sting a bit, however I have sensitive/reactive skin.
The water fuse sleeping mask might be the best call. It has less active ingredients, but amazing for long haul lights. The dry down time is very fast, forming a protective film over your moisturizer, locking in all your skincare goodness away from the drying cabin air. Also, both masks go on transparent, which makes it ideal for traveling without scaring the person next to you.
