At what step in your skincare routine do you apply acne spot treatments?

If I apply it after mositurizer, I don’t think it’s as effective, if I apply them before moisturizer, does it get wiped away once I apply the moisturizer? I use Mario Badescu drying lotion to dry them out.

Depends on the consistency 🙂 If I use gel moisturiser, I apply spot treatment after. If the moisturiser is thicker, I apply the treatment first. And if you wait until the spot treatment is absorbed, it won't get wiped away. 😉

Right after toner! I tend to let the spot treatment settle for a bit before moving on with the rest of my skincare 💫 But if you're using anything with microneedles, they should be used at the end of your routine.

i try to use it after cleansing but i agree, i tend to wipe it away along with serums or moisturizers i use after. another ‘trick’ is to wipe away skincare product on that specific pimple at the end of your routine, followed by applying the spottreatment
