After cleansing I use dr haushuka toner, then a serum. Can I use roc tetinol cream on top of serum? Still effective? Thanks

After cleansing I use dr haushuka toner, then a serum. Can I use roc tetinol cream on top of serum? Still effective? Thanks

As there is clear evidence the retinoic acid and the precursors to it like retinol are effective for wrinkles; retinol being less potent but more "tolerable". Realize that the toner/serum may blunt the "effectiveness" of the retinol. ...Read more
