Layering products with active ingredients??

Does anyone have any advice on how I should later my current products from The Ordinary - and what order they should be applied for maximum benefit?

The Ordinary "Buffet" 1 oz/ 30 mL buffet


The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% 1 oz/ 30 mL

RE: Layering products with active ingredients??

Hey! I actually just bought 3 of the products you just mentioned & I’m trying to figure out what order to use them in too! I just emailed deciem (the company that oversees the ordinary), told them which products I’m going to be using and asked which order to use them in. Here’s the link to contact them. Apparently they reply pretty quickly! Good luck! 🙂

Did you see on fb that the founder, Brandon, was found deceased? 😲

I guess they closed the office today.
