Irritant: Retinoids and weak acid are often used for facial rejuvenation. They cause peeling of the skin which can be quite bothersome for some people. The higher the concentration, the worse the irritation.

It : It is often a bit tricky to use a retinoid such as Retin-A without irritation. There have been studies that have shown applying a thin layer of a mild facial lotion prior to applying the retinoid can be helpful to reduce irritation. If you feel you are truly allergic as opposed to just irritated by cosmetic facial products, a visit to a dermatologist for possible allergy testing might be helpful. Also, make sure you are using a very mild soapless cleanser so you don't dry out your facial skin when cleaning it.
