Yeah, it's pretty much the same. The "gel" is microspheres in a cream base, so it looks like cream anyway. It's supposed to be less irritating for most people.

I use a BHA or AHA lotion daily. Then apply the Renova over it. I'm always flaky under my eyes despite exfoliation and moisturizing... I can quit the BHA or AHA and even the Renova and still battle with the flakes. Any ideas?
Thanks

You could try adding a copper peptide to your Retin-A regimen. In the winter, I mix CP with Retin-A before applying. The CP helps build collegen and really helps reduce the flaking from Retin-A. I'm not sure it helps much with fine lines, although there are some studies that say it does.

I use Super CP Serum from Dr. Pickart's Skin Biology, but there are others:
