Skincare overhaul

I need a new skincare routine. Overall my skin is pretty nice- I don’t break out a ton, its even, not too oily.. blah blah. BUT I’m starting to get wrinkles (i’m 25, yuck) and I have blackheads on my nose (TMI?) PLUS my skin is very sensitive so I worry about over drying (see: wrinkles)

Currently I use:

Cetaphil Cleanser– When I’m at my bf’s place this is my go to, but if I’m wearing heavy make up I don’t feel like its really cleaning my face or helping my blackhead situation.

Olay Complete All Day Moisturizer with SPF 15 – this has been a staple in my life for like 10 years. I dont want to change it. I love it. I’m instead thinking I need to add a acne spot cream or something.

Olay Daily Renewal Cleanser– eh? I feel ok about this- but I don’t like the scrubbers on my eyes, I worry I am doing damage to the delicate skin even though I need to get my eye makeup off.

Aveda Botanical Kinetics Cleanser – I use this when I’m at my parents (ie three nights a week) and I like it enough. Sometimes I feel like it dries out my face. Again, I feel like it does nothing for my blackheads, but maybe thats because I’m not using it consistently enough.

*PS I only wash my face at night, in the morning I just splash water on it and move on to my moisturizer.

What I’ve heard to try:

Neutrogena Oil-Free Pink Grapefruit Foaming Scrub

Neutrogena Acne Stress Control 3 in 1 Moisturizer

–  The Clarisonic Mia

Should I be using an eye makeup remover? Biggest question, Should I spring for the Clarisonic Mia?
