Since you have normal skin so I think regular Stempower Moisturizer and Deep Surge are good enough UNLESS you live in low humidity area, or stay in a room with air conditioning for long hours. If this is the case, you can use an intensive moisturizer like Stempower Rich Cream in day or day and night.
And don't forget to use sunscreen to protect yourself from the damages of UVA/UVB.
Going back to your question, if you have Deep Surge and Stempower already, you can use Stempower in daytime and Deep Surge at night. Stempower is easy to be absorbed and it will not leave a greasy layer on the skin so it will not affect your makeup. Deep Surge is good too but it is in gel texture so when you apply foundation afterwards, the foundation might not stay on the skin nicely. Besides, it helps to brighten and repair damaged skin so it is better to use it at nighttime.
It will not affect the effectiveness of skin care product even though you use foundation after applying SK-II. But it is better for you to wait 3-5 mins before putting the makeup on. I always wear my makeup after breakfast to make sure the skin care product is penetrated into the skin.
Dear Sue,This essence is used after cleansing and toning. After using Facial Treatment Essence, you can use SK-II Cellumination Essence EX, SK-II Cellumination Day Surge UV SPF30 PA+++ (50g) (daytime) and SK-II Cellumination Deep Surge (50g) at night.
If you do not have sensitive skin, I will recommend SK-II Clear Lotion (toner), Facial Treatment Essence (improve rough skin and refine pores) and Stempower Moisturizer (rehydrate your skin without leaving a greasy layer on it). These items are the basic skin care products that help to improve dryness and promote anti-aging to your skin. For Shiseido Elixir Whitening, I like Lotion II (toner), Moisturizer II (for normal to dry skin) and Shiseido Elixir Whitening Protector SPF50. They rehydrate, soften and brighten your skin and it is less expensive than SK-II. This series is suitable for most skin types, including for some sensitive skin. Having said that, I do like SK-II better as I can see the result after using a couple of weeks. For Sofina Beaute Series, our customers prefer Sofina Beaute Intensive Hydrating Lotion (Toner II - dry & normal to dry skin), Sofina Beaute Intensive Emulsion (II - Nighttime Moisturizer) (dry & normal to dry skin) and Sofina Beaute Day Protector SPF50 PA+++ (Moist) (dry skin). These products improve dryness from inside out and prevent aging problem. I will recommend you try Sofina Beaute Day Protector SPF50 as it serves as day moisturizer, sunscreen and makeup base so you can use it right after toner.
