Nightly routine

At night I clean my face with Avon Anew Facial cleanser, then I use Anew Advanced Clincal Restrucurizing Peel (pads) that contain glycolic acid and then I use Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair, moisturizer and separate eye cream. I think I read in Allure that I should wait 30min of more after using glycolic acid products before using a retinol product like Rapid Wrinkle. Does anyone know?

You didn't say what the problem is that you're trying to take care of.  It sounds like acne.  I learned from my doctor that you put retinol on first.  Give it 2 hours to absorb, then add the other products, with the moisturizer (oil free) last because the other products you are using are very strong and will dry out your skin.  Still need to have moisture when fighting acne.
