Since it contains retinol, do I need to use an eye cream containing SUNSCREEN?

on Ferulic + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum
This product contains a specially sourced form of retinol that is photostable, meaning it doesn't cause light sensitivity. However, you should always wear sunscreen daily, no matter what products you use!

I would use a sunblock during the day to be safe. You never know how badly skin exposed to retinol will react to the sun, plus skipping sunblock means you may get more pigmentation in the area you want to fix.

As this is a serum it is best used underneath an eye cream and one with an SPF will protect your skin better. You may want to use this serum at night only if you do not wish to use an eye product with SPF.
