Do serum foam?

Hey! The was just wondering does your serum or essence foam when rubbed between your palms or is it just me experiencing that? I usually apply directly on the skin but when in hurry I just take required amount and rub between my palm and pat on my face. I actually never noticed this before or I was just in hurry to notice but I actually saw serum foamed and I panicked and ended up skipping the whole routine and went with just sunscreen. Also I tried with other serums and essence, some of them foamed and some didn’t! None of my products are expired so I am just curious to know!

Some serums do foam if you used other product or if it has some surfactants in the formula. You shouldn't panic :)

I also exprienced the same with the Ginseng Essence Water from BOJ, when I started using it emulsified/foams up (when I tried to apply a second layer of it or when I tried to continue my skincare routine by applying a serum) but it stopped after few days/week of use 👀🌝

I have experienced that with some serums if I apply too much on my skin, so I would suggest that you apply a little bit at a time and pat on your skin and repeat the process at needed.
