Should I use these before, or after using the acne treatment?
I purchased these pads at a Sephora in Atlanta, along with the Nighttime acne treatment, I have been using both at night, I start off by washing my face with water, then I apply the pads, I wait for those to dry, then apply the acne treatment and go to bed. My question is, Should I be doing this? I know the pads are designed to tighten pores, so do I want to use the pads first? After? Or should I switch to using the pads in the morning?
Your help is greatly appreciated.

on Astringent Toner Pads
I would use this before any treatment or moisturizer as this is like a toner. Use this after you wash your face.

I would use this product before putting on acne medication because the nature of the pad is to remove oil and dirt from the skin. If you put your treatment on before hand you run the risk of removing that product as well.

i use it before as it totally cleans the skin and then apply any creams or treatments. great product
I use them after i use the clinique clarifying lotion 3 and avon acne face wash and acne face pads the three things i use dry out my face but using the Anthony toner pads after keeps my face soft and moistue
After u wash it and if u use a scrub that can only be used twice a week i would recommend using the pads everyday

I would use the pads in the day time if this is the case. I'm no professional but it seems like using them both at the same time might be too much for yours or anybodys skin.
