It was recommended to me that I use Differin for my blackhead problem, and that I use a serum, as well. I've seen different answers as to whether one should apply a treatment product or a serum first. For others who use a daily serum, do you apply the treatment on top of the serum, or the serum on top of the treatment?

I do things in this order:

cleanser - serum - moisturiser - sunscreen - blemish gel. 

This is because BP / most acne topical treatments are drying. So i make sure my skin is prepped and protected before putting them on. Also they won't rub off if its the last step. I would also look for lightweight skincare products that aren't pore blocking. Using too much imo isn't best practice. less is more :-)
