skincare

is this a good routine? should i change the order? i have acne prone and combination skin.

cleanser

essence

toner

serum

moisturizer

Re: skincare

Can you tell us what product you are using in each step? The order seems fine but it very much depends on the producs

Re: skincare

@sydneypa1ge It depends on the specific products. A hydrating toner goes in a different place than an exfoliating one and same with regular essence vs first treatment essences. Same with serums. It all hinges on the function and ingredients of the products. 

Re: skincare

@sydneypa1ge I agree with @SportyGirly125. Generally, skincare order is thinnest to thickest consistency. Serums can fall into a grey area since some are creamy in consistency even though they’re serums but they still get applied at around the same point in your routine as thinner serums. 

Re: skincare

i feel like my essence is thicker than my serum (i have cosrx snail mucin essence) and the serum is almost like a water consistency

Re: skincare

@sydneypa1ge If you like the order you’re doing things in now, then by all means keep going with it. It’s perfectly fine to put the snail mucin after more watery serums. 

Also, a quick tip for navigating BIC: Use @ To tag people when replying. Serphora doesn’t automatically inform people when you reply, so we use it as a workaround. You can also use it to tag other threads. # works similarly but for tagging products. 

Re: skincare

@sydneypa1ge I would do this order 

 

cleanser

toner

essence

serum

moisturizer
