retinol, rosacea, and metrogel--oh, my!

I'm trying retinol cream again.  It's a ridiculously low concentration, which I know from previous experience was enough to cause irritation.  In a way, it's reassuring that it causes irritation, because it suggests to me that maybe it is being converted to retinoic acid in my skin.  At any rate, I wanted to give it another try, taking it slow.  I use metro gel for my rosacea.  Would I put the retinol cream on after applying the metro gel (which I use at night)?  And is a super low concentration of retinol enough to see any anti-aging benefits?
