I gave in today and bought an eye cream to go with my existing skin care routine.

Anyways, I know that it really doesn't matter whether you apply your eye cream before or after your moisturizer, but if your moisturizer does not contain sunscreen, should you apply your eye cream before or after UV Protection?

I know I've made of threads lately...

At least I keep people talking!

I kind feel silly for posting this as I think I just found the answer!

Eye cream is to be applied before sunscreen, correct? I just need some verification so that I am confident with my routine...

Also, this is kind of irrelevant, but I'm wondering how much effort and time a good beauty regimen requires?

Before. Just get good info and stick with it. Retinoids, sunscreen, antioxidant serum, nutrition, supplements, exercise, etc. You should be able to come up with a routine on your own.

If you're going all out, I would do it in this order: moisturizer, any kind of treatment including eye cream, sunscreen, primer. I personally don't use all of those items all the time, but that seems like it would be the correct order, with the primer last to "seal" it; then make-up of course, if you use it.

I called Olay about the order to apply products. They told me to do all the special treatments before the day or night creme. Can't believe any brand would be different.
