You could definitely reduce the number of products you are using - and probably get better results with a more focused approach (less is more in skincare). Could you share a little bit more about your skin?

How many face washes are you using? I have oily skin but still only wash my face once in the evening and that actually helps my skin be less oily than if I wash it twice a day. If you overstrip your skin it will produce more oil. Also, you only need one product with salicylic acid. Using multiple products with this ingredient will not give better results and will just cause more irritation. All of the Sukin products look like they are using the same ingredients so I would only use one of them at a time, either the cleanser, toner or lotion. No need to use all three. I love the Paula’s choice BHA toner but I would take out any other exfoliating acids when using this product and maybe even use the BHA toner every other day. There are just too many exfoliating acids in this routine and this will wreck your skin barrier which will make breakouts worse.
