Am I on the right track?

Hello dear WIMJ community! Just switched to this routine, because the previous one was a little on the pricey side for me. I am not quite sure yet if I am on the right track with this one. The analysis says there are too many products, and I feel a slightly tight skin at the moment. Using these products for one week now. My skin can be a bit sensitive, my age is 56 years. I live in a mediterranean climate. Thank you for looking at it with me <3

I think it's a good start in terms of actives! I see you're repeating some of them though, both in procucts ( you have a seperate niacinamide serum, but the retinol also contains it, as does the moisturiser) and in routine (vitamin C in both the AM and PM). If I were you I'd switch to once a day (vitamin C in the AM, niacinamide in the PM for instance). I would also advise you not to use the retinol every day, as it might be too irritating for a sensitive skin. I think most people work up to us retinol every other day. And as you are using retinol, I think you should also consider using a higher SPF. As it's currently in the form of a tinted moisturiser, I doubt you are using a sufficient amount to protect your skin, and you really should as retinol makes your skin extra sensitive to the sun!

Thank you so much for the reply! I will try the suggestions and also going to look for a good sunscreen to use.
