Hi there it is not a good idea to use that retinol cream eye cream.
If it is post inflammatory pigmentation then it will eventually go away, even if left untreated. Since these spots are caused by melanin production, the affected skin will shed like all skin cells. On its own, it will generally resolve within one to two years.
Topical tretinoin 0.1% has been effective in treating postinflammatory hyperpigmentation but I would advise to use it after discussion with skin specialist.
Topical hydroquinone has been used for the treatment of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation for many years and is considered the gold standard therapy. Discuss with your skin specialist please
Topical retinol yes but not sure about hydroquinone, you need to ask them
Best of luck
