Is my routine enough?

Does this routine actually aid in ridding of my acne or do I add in something else more effective?

The moisturizer I use has SPF 30 but unfortunately they didn’t have it on here, thank you!

Good that you are using an SPF! I wouldn't use the Naturium exfoliant twice per day - i'd rather apply it once-twice per week. What are your main skin goals? There are might be 1-2 actives worth adding - depending on how your skin is and what you'd like to achieve.

Ok I will look into doing that thank you! And currently my main goals are to clear my acne, clear the blackheads on my nose, and even rid of my acne scars. I have relatively sensitive and oily skin, and I've been dealing with acne since I was in 6th grade. Being 21 now I'm very much open to anything that can help me finally clear my skin :)

You might want to look into retinoids: https://whatsinmyjar.com/entries/93/how-to-start-with-a-retinoid-if-you-have-sensitive-skin. These ingredients help reduce breakouts, blackheads, heal scars quicker, improve skin tone and prevent early signs of aging, too. The most important thing is watching out for irritation/sensitivity. It might be a good idea for you to only use your cleanser in the evening and just splash with water in the morning (this will minimize the damage to the skin barrier, so your skin will be more resilient and will be able to tolerate a retinoid better.
