Used with other serums?
I'm already using an anit-redness serum, and the REN clearcalm day lotion, so would this go in place of the REN, or over it, or under it? My only concern with using only cleanser, redness serum, and the Kate Serum is not having an anti-acne treatment on my face all day. Obviously I wouldn't use this product at night so I can use my REN night lotion. What to do, what to do...?

Not sure if my answer will help you out. Time and again, I use a facial cleanser and moisturizer appropriate for rosacea and I use this over that and then apply make-up. I do fine with this regimen.
This product definitely plays well with other products. While I haven't tried the REN products you mentioned, I always layer my face creams/gels, and use this sunscreen last over everything else (unless I am using primer, which I normally don't unless I am having a very bad skin day.)
I have weird sensitive skin: acne AND dryness on my chin, flakiness on my cheeks, and oily forehead. Because of this, I use different products on different parts of my face: acne medicine, heavy duty moisturizer on my cheeks in the winter, and retinol cream on my forehead. Sometimes I throw in a vitamin c serum as well.
This Sunscreen hasn't interacted with any other product to cause irritation or burning. It also looks great with both BareMinerals and liquid foundation.

I prefer to use this under moisturizer. If you are using another serum, i would use it after that and before moisturizer. This is extremely lightweight and has never caused me any breakouts- nor have i ever gotten burned.

I mix this serum with my usual brightening serum, and it works great. In my experience, this can be added to your regimen - it needn't replace another product.

You don't have to sacrifice using your REN ClearCalm Day Lotion. I suggest layering the sunscreen over the lotion, or even mixing the two together.
Hope that helps!
