Some say one should moisturize immediately after cleansing because this traps additional moisture in the skin.

Others say to wait until the skin has dried and the pores have closed so as to avoid clogging one's pores with moisturizer.

What say you, and why?

I'm fairly sure it depends on the moisturizer you use.

M / PM, preferably after shower when the skin has dried.

I have tried both methods. I don't think it makes a difference.

I generally will shave, pat-dry my face and then apply a toner. I usually don't need a moisturizer after that, my skin doesn't get dry if I use a toner.

Either after a shave or shower. Ever since I've been doing this it's amazing how much I notice how tight my face feels immediately after if I don't moisturize.

After shaving, don't dry face, put it on, let it dry.

I wetshave, splash with cold water, dry off, apply toner, then a really really light easily absorbed moisturizer just to keep the balance right. Also, i can't stand moisturizer that you can feel sticking to your face.
