Absolutely! I've been doing it for years. Of course to answer this, like any skin-based question you have to know you're skin. I have dry, allergic, aging skin with adult acne (that's treated through retinol products). None of Perricone's products have ever caused me problems with allergies so I'm willing to try just about any combo with them. That said, if you have "sensitive skin" it might be different. They are both strong products and combining them could have an effect on your skin (there's a difference between allergic and sensitive skin). So then you have to decide what you're trying to treat. To me retinol is scientifically based so I trust that. If you're treating aging or acne than I would recommend it. I do feel that the other product does help in firming, but retinol literally fights the signs of aging but building collegan in your skin so I think it's a better product.

I use both products together the same way you are. I think it makes sense to put the retinol on first, however using two serums together takes away the effectiveness of the second product.
