I am new to using serum and was wondering if you can mix serum with moisturiser. Thanks.

Ask your question
  • I use an eye and mouth serum. I put that on, then I apply moisturiser all over my face, including over the serum. I need all the anti wrinkle treatment help I can get! I’m not getting any bad side effects from it


  • Use your serum first then wait and apply your moisturiser,serums are fantastic and l have noticed make a difference to the appearance of my skin.


  • I would use them individually and if in doubt seek advice from a beauty consultant at a cosmetic store.


  • I would just get the amount of moisturiser you are going to use and pre mix that with the serum amount and go for it.


  • I cant see why it couldn’t be, some come with serums in them these days


  • I wouldn’t physically mix the products, but using serum first, then applying moisturizer should be fine. Give it a few minutes after applying the serum before you apply the moisturizer, so that they both absorb into the skin.


  • there are some good comments here


  • i dont see why not


  • I find it’s best to put the serum on first and then follow with the moisturiser approx 10 – 15 minutes later.


  • Apply the serum first, but it is important to use a good exfoliant as well. I use all different products but all of them are salon quality. You get great results from consistent use. I don’t always moisturise after using my serum but you most definitely can ;))))))
    Cleanse, Exfoliate, Serum, Moisturise…..


  • Serum first… Give it a minute or two to soak in and then moisturiser.


  • i would definitely use the serum followed by moisturiser


  • I’d use one then the other after the first settled in. serum first then moisteriser


  • I couldn’t see a problem with mixing them as long as they are compatible


  • I dont mix but I do put the serum on first then do my hair and come
    back to use moisturizer…havent had a reaction so it must be ok
