Adding the potions trio in my routine

I'm been lucky enough to win the @thepotions trio set for skin hydration. I started to use it in my skinny routine, however as I'm a newbie into skincare, any improvement suggestions are appreciated! This is my current routine with the potion ampoule: MORNING 🌞 Neutrogena face wash for blemish-prone skin Tzone Antibacterial cleanser Revuele vitamin C toner The potions Hyaluronic Acid The potions Peptide Nivea Q10 anti wrinkle and pore minimising SPF15 Skinchemist eye serum EVENING 🌚 Makeup removal wipes Once a week Garnier face exfoliating scrub Kiehls blue herbal blemish skin cleanser Tzone Antibacterial cleanser (or Nivea 2-1 cleanser & toner if I have used full-face make up) The potions Hyaluronic Acid The potions jojoba oil Freederm overnight skin repair mask Boots cucumber eye gel Twice a month peeling off mask (detox /purify) I'm low budget and in UK, so I see often in here interesting product, but shipping etc make them not very accessible. I have lately issue with mild acne/pimples which makes my skin uneven and not smooth, so trying to get some improvements with what I can afford. Do you think the order I use these products is correct or should I change it? Any 'must' products which should be added?

Please don't use make up wipes, scrubs and peel off masks - non of those are good for your skin. Also double cleansing in the AM and triple cleansing in the PM can be very stripping for the skin. I would incorporate a chemical exfoliant in the routine to deal with the texture and acne - Boots, The Ordinary, Revolution have lots of affordable options. Otherwise, peptides are best used in the PM routine after cleansing, but not a must. And jojoba oil should used as the last step.

To remove make up it's best to use cleansing balm, micellar water or something similar. Make up wipes don't actually clean the make up off proeprly (only the most visible on the surface) and rubbing is bad for the skin. They're ok to use once in a blue moon when you're very tired, but not daily. Peel off masks are very drying and irritate the skin when peeling off. Also they don't actually help with blackheads etc. Trust me, I've done it myself for years and thought it was fine, until I started reading about skincare more and realised how much damage I've put my skin through over the years. It's not only about the effects you see at the time, but what you're doing to your skin over a long period of time. So actually the Potions set should be great to add some hydration to your skin. Sometimes even acne is caused or worsened by dehydration but we keep attacking with acne treatments that just dehydrate the skin even more. A vicious cycle *sigh*
