In brief: 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.
