Korean Serums are highly active potions. Therefore just a few drops should be enough. The lightweight, highly concentrated serum formula sets it apart from moisturizers. Therefore they tend to be heavier and create a more hydrating barrier as opposed to permeating the skin.
For this reason, Korean serums should only be used after you have cleansed and toned up your skin. Then right before you apply any Korean creams. When applied in this order, the method allows the serum product to reach your skin. It can then perform the task it was designed to do.
