I use prescription Retin-A.  Can I use this with WHINE?  Before or after?

Usually, you would want to avoid using a product with active ingredients at the same time a using Retin A. The WHINE serum has peptides and Vitamin C, so it  might be better to alternate nights between the two products. 

If you feel like you need a moisturizer wIth the Retin A, you could buffer the Retin A by applying a basic moisturizer prior to the Retin A or wait at least 20 minutes after applying the Retin A.

Did they really name their product WHINE? Too funny! Woman LOL


Peptides are fine to use with Retin A. And the vitamin C is relatively low in the ingredient list, so I would assume the formula isn't too overly acidic. No retinol in there, so you aren't doubling up on vitamin A. I'd say ask your derm, but I don't see anything wrong based on a quick look at the list. And of course if you get a reaction, stop.


Use Retin A first and let it sit for 20 min at least before putting anything on top.

I don't think that they intentionally named it "WHINE", but it's the acronym for "When Hope Is Not Enough".
