BP is drying, which can seem to accentuate wrinkles. Moisturizing, though, counteracts the dryness.

From the FAQs:

Q: Does benzoyl peroxide cause wrinkles?

A: No, it does not cause wrinkles; however, some people experience wrinkling around the eyes due to applying benzoyl peroxide too closely to that area. This wrinkling is due to dryness and is not permanent. Avoid the eye area with benzoyl peroxide. It is also important to avoid the eye area with moisturizer that is applied over the benzoyl peroxide. This is because the moisturizer can mix with the benzoyl peroxide and bring the benzoyl peroxide with it. On a personal note, the lower half of my face, which is where I've been using benzoyl peroxide for 20 years, looks better than where I haven't. See this link for a pic of my skin after 20 years of benzoyl peroxide.

I stopped using my bp months ago but my under eye area is still wrinkly, well at least I think it is. I've been using the ocm, you can't get much more moisturising than that surely. Would Castor Oil or Differin do the same thing? Should I not be using castor oil around the eye area?
