Which products work well with L.A. Refining Serum?
- LA Refining Serum can be layered with Niacinamide and Retinol; it really comes down to your skin and what it can tolerate.
- What it doesn't play well with:
- Avoid mixing Lactic Acid with benzoyl peroxide, which can be found in our 24 Hour Acne Serum.
- Retinol: To start, we would recommend alternating 1-2 evenings when using retinol and LA Refining Serum. Over time, when following a proper exfoliation routine your skin will build a tolerance and allow other skincare (serums, moisturizers) to penetrate deeper and work harder.
Where to use it in your routine:
As a general rule of thumb, your products should usually be applied from thinnest consistency to thickest consistency. L.A. Refining Serum is a slightly thicker serum, so it would be applied after your more lightweight serums (like Needle-less Serum). But for the perfect placement in your routine, please refer to our Routine Builder, where you can choose which products you have, and we'll give you the correct order of usage.
