Thank you so much for your feedback! ❤️

I think your skin might be getting overwhelmed with all the products in ingredients in your routine and it might feel and look better if you simplify it. For example, I'd:

- stop the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop serum

- Niacinamide 10% serum is quite strong, and the research shows that the concentration of 4-6% is enough for a good effect. I would recommend trying this instead: https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/vichy-mineral-89-prebiotic or https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/good-molecules-niacinamide-serum

- Check if you really need to double-cleanse in the evening: it is usually better to use a generous amount of a single cleanser to remove the makeup, sunscreen & dirt in one go. You can use a separate makeup-remover for mascara beforehand. Less cleansing steps = less irritation

- I would choose a different retinol serum, and try to slowly start using it every night. A few options: https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/shani-darden-skin-care-retinol-reform; https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/cerave-skin-renewing-retinol-face-cream-serum-for-fine-lines-and-wrinkles; https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/honest-beauty-honestly-pure-retinol-serum

- Consider using the skinoren cream every day or every other day, maybe in your AM routine

- Exfoliate only if your skin does not feel sensitive or dry at all. You will get enough gentle exfoliation from the retinoid and skinoren cream, so it's not your main focus

Best of luck with the updated routine!
