Is my routine missing anything important?

Hi! I've recently curated a new routine with existing products I use and really like (Ponds cream, heimish sunscreen, palmer's oil) and researched new products that I've purchased to replace what I'm using now as I didn't love it. I added a tinted physical sunscreen and vit c in the morning and a cleansing oil and toner for night.

If there is a different moisturizer you'd recommend (I have dry skin) I'd love to hear it. Like the ponds cream compared to other $70+ moisturizers I've bought as I didn't really see the difference between them but am not really in LOVE with it. It just does its job.

Since you have dry and sensitive skin, skipping the morning cleanse could help your skin barrier. Also, double cleansing at night is also not ideal for sensitive/dry skin - can you imagine cleansing in one step?

I'd also check how your skin reacts to the Palmers Cocoa butter oil - do you feel does it helps your dry skin substantially? The oil can be comedogenic, so might not be the best option if you are acne prone.

As for a moisturizer, maybe this can be another option? https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/olay-collagen-peptide-24-moisturizer

Hi Maria thanks for responding! I've definitely thought about skipping the morning cleanse and might try skipping it twice a week. My main concern was using a retinol product at night and a vitamin c product in the morning. Also, double cleansing only on nights when I wear makeup which is like twice a week usually (but I guess I should've put one of the cleansers in the once or twice a week section that's my bad).

I have been using Palmers Cocoa butter oil for the past 3 months and it's absolutely transformed my skin, I love it!

And looked into the moisturizer you suggested and it seems amazing! Mine is running out and looks like I'm gonna try out the Olay one, thank you!
