I've been doing the Korean skin care routine for a while now and I've recently been seeing others do things differently. I start with the Klairs toner, than get into my snail mucin essence, then i proceed to my Cosrx aha liquid, then my vitamin C20 serum then my oils then moisturizer. Both my serum and aha liquid are liquid form and many bloggers have been saying to apply them before my essence since it's an acid treatment. Is this true? Usually you're supposed to apply serum after essence, idk if there is an exception with vitamin c

Hi Melissa! That's correct that you should apply any AHA (eg. the CosRX aha liquid), BHA, or l-ascorbic acid (eg. the vitamin c20 serum) products first because they are actives and require your skin to be a specific pH level to work. You can learn more about the how and why here, hope this helps!

I have a super oily skin but I do recognize a few routines from you that I also use! The serum+sheetmasks is awesome and I learned it from you. I did this during the winter time (yes you talked about spring hehe) but I loved it so much <3 My Klairs toner is on its way and now I hear its quiet hydrated i'm kinda scared if it will work for my skin, even when i apply it on a cotton pad. Oh well, you will see a review about my experience with the Klairs toner soon! It was fun to read hon

Thanks An! So glad you like the serum + sheet mask combo, I actually use this year round too :P The Klairs toner is definitely on the richer side when it comes to toners, but if you use it on a cotton pad I don't think it'll be too bad :) Can't wait to hear your thoughts on it!
