ingredients that don't fit eachother

Hello skincare lovers! I wanted to liste to the opinions of the skincare community about ingredients that don't fit eachother. Last week I realized that some products really don't work well with others. For example, last week I used a hyaluronic acid serum with a moisturizer for acne prone skin, from frezyderm. Both products are amazing and they both do wonders on my face since I now use one at my night routine and the other at my morning routine. I don't know why but when I used both at night, my skin dried up. Could you tell me what are the worst ingredient combos? The products I am referring to will be listed below. Disclaimer: I have nothing against both of the products after organizing better my routine.
Hyalu B5 Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum with Vitamin B5 for Sensitive Skin

What doesn't work is eg. exfoliants and Retinol! Or Vitamin C with Retinol! Retinol is already challenging for our skin and adding ingredients which sensitize our more is a no go! So please be careful!!

Most people will tell you that you can’t use actives and retinol together, or vit C. This combo I found by experience and you can check the info online is Vit C and Sodium benzoate is a BIG NO! Vit C and Sodium benzoate creates benzene which can cause cancer. On skin, it causes break out, at least that’s what happened to me. It was the worse breakout I’ve ever had. Watch out for these two.
