Skincare order

Does anyone else feel iffy about the order you’re putting on products? I feel like once I put a heavier product on anything after becomes diluted. Anyone relate?

Do you follow the order of thinnest to thickest? And you should wait a bit between steps so products don't mix with one another. The order should be cleanser - toner - serum/ampoule - moisturiser - oil - sunscreen. The steps would vary depending on your specific routine.

Please try to put thinnest products before thickest. Your product may not penetrate as deep in your skin as they should. And what I read that other user like to apply their products on damp skin maybe this will help you (but I personally don't enjoy it)

I always go from the thinnest watery products to the more thicker creams. This also applies to essence and serums, since even tho essences are supposed to go first sometimes they're ticker than my serums. Oil goes in last since it's an occlusive that'll seal off your skincare.

right! I was just about to comment and say that some essences end up being farther down the line. A lot of ppl think of them as watery but I have a few that are thick like moisturizer. Glad you mentioned that 😊
