Thoughts on my routine?

I am not new to basic skincare products, but I am new to having a more involved skincare routine. I started this routine around 3 weeks ago, and so far I have only had great things to report. I have, however, started doing more research on ingredients and brands and would like to get some input on my current routine from the community. I have dry to combination skin and my biggest concerns are clogged pores and anti-aging.

My morning routine stays the same every day, but I am currently doing the skin cycling method for my nighttime routine, which my skin seems to really like. I have listed how I use the treatments below (in addition to cleanser, moisturizer, and eye cream.)

Night 1: Good Genes Lacic Acid

Night 2: A+ High Dose Retinoid Serum & Luna Sleeping Oil

Night 3: No treatments, just cleanser, moisturizer, and eye cream

Night 4: Same as night 3

I start the cycle again on night 5.

I would love your thoughts and if you have suggestions on better products, I am open to anything! Thanks in advance!

I forgot to add that I do use the Sunday Riley Light Hearted SPF daily!

Hello there! Overall, you are using good actives (plus broad spectrum sunscreen, yay!), but I think you can simplify your routine quite a bit and get the same or even better results (+save time & money).

Also, especially because you are new to potent actives, I'd be careful not to trigger irritation. It might be a good idea to go for fragrance-free skincare going forward, for example, when you run out of a product and looking to re-purchase.

Products that I think you can stop (or not re-purchase) without losing results:

Looks great although I am not familiar with Sunday Riley that much. Just be careful with facial oils if you are experiencing pore clogging. Click on my profile if you want to see my holy grail products since I am also loving skin cycling. I have been doing it for 3 months. I have Combo/oily skin.
