Application order?

Hey guys, I was just wondering if it matters if you apply your acne medication before or after your moisturizer? I feel like I'm rubbing off the medication if I apply a moisturizer after it. Also, how long should i wait between applying each product?

Applying your moisturizer first could affect how well the treatment can penetrate. You're better off applying your treatment to a clean face, then waiting at least 5-15 minutes before moisturizing.

Can I put lotion on first, then the BP?? Does the order of application matter as long as you wait for layers to dry?? I was wondering if it matters...and does it hold true with all acne topical meds??
