opinions on my routine

hi everyone! i've been trying to rework my routine for the past couple months because i was not having luck with solely using cerave, and this is a culmination of products i've found that have worked for me. i have had great success with aveeno's products and plan to completely incorporate them into my daily routine once i get through my cerave lotion and cream. for context, i have sensitive, acne-prone, combination skin with rosacea on my cheeks. i'm working on reducing the redness in my cheeks, the appearance of my pores, and keeping breakouts away. the analysis feature says my routine is a medium for irritancy, but with my sensitive skin i have not noticed any irritation with these products.

i used to use good molecule's niacinamide serum for my enlarged pores and it did work great for that, but found it would irritate my skin after awhile and i'd have to stop using it for a couple days. the toner has a smaller concentration (3%) compared to the serum, as well as other good ingredients for irritation like licorice root and just feels a lot more hydrating. the aveeno serum has been a life saver for my redness, as well as the gel moisturizer and the eczema balm for slugging at night. i used to also use the inkey list oat cleansing balm as a double cleanse to remove my water resistant spf, but it was a hit or miss using it. some days it would leave a film on my face, other days it worked. so i'm sticking to just washing my face with the cerave sa cleanser.

i just want everyone's thoughts on my routine and whether there is anything you would remove or change! i've yet to incorporate the pha exfoliator, but i hear it's very gentle on the skin.
