Do I use this with a toner?
I just purchased this product and want to know how to use it. I used to use a cleanser, followed by a toner and a moisturizer. I know I put this on after the cleanser and before the moisturizer...but what about the toner? Do I use this with a toner? If so, do I put it on after the toner and before the moisturizer? Do you all use this AM and PM? Thanks!

on AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel
I understand I used to be the three step rule as well! I would say you don't need a toner with this product. I would also suggest you use the face wash of this brand the are like an all in one. I usually was my face, put the gel on and then a moisturizer. I feel that it seems to work best that way. To add though if you use a spray toner that is mostly for refresh it will be fine.

I had the same question and called sephora customer service to ask. this is what they told me: use product morning and night after cleansing (if you use a toner, I would do that before you do this) wait 20 minutues and then apply eye cream and or moisturizer. I have used this with and without moisturizer and haven't had any problems iwth dry skin at all (maybe one or two flakes in the 3 weeks I've been using it). It's personal preference... the customer service rep did tell me to make sure to wait the 20 minutes because there are "actives" in the gel (the beta hydroxy acid & salicylic acid) and that you should let it dry before adding a moisturizer to it or else it might react with the active ingredient in the gel and not be as potent. I hope this helps!

Order of use. Cleanse skin, use toner, use PTR (thin layer), and then moisturize.

When i used this product I use a cleanser, then the clearing gel then a moisturizer. This product has alcohol in it so if you used a toner it might be a little over-kill.

Use face wash then use the AHA/BHA gel (only a very small amount) Its pretty intense. Once it dries use your moisturizer. I would not use a toner with this. Start with 1 time and if your skin tolerates then move to am and pm.
