You can use a moisturizer with this, but you may not need to. It is very creamy. If you decide to use with other product, you will want to gauge which one is thicker and apply the thicker one last.

I try to avoid using retinol products too close to the eyes, so I use the ROC eye cream.

You can use a serum under it, should you wish. You do NOT need a moisturizer over this product. Do not use it in the eye area, it is not made for the delicate eye area skin.

You shouldn't need an additional moisturizer, it is very smooth and creamy.

From what I understand, moisturizers, especially oils, can degrade the retinol. These night products have their own moisturizer built in making it unnecessary to use additional. On the Skincuticals .05 retinol cream tube it says to wait a half hour before applying a moisturizer, but I always wake up with a zit or two if I do. When I use it alone, no problem. Hope this helps - I could be wrong. All our skins are soooo different.
