When it comes to my skin, I prefer to use less products out of fear of a breakout, allergy, etc. I have very oily yet sensitive skin and these are the products I have found out work best for my skin.

CLINIQUE's 7 Day Scrub Cream Rinse-Off Formula
I primarily use CLINIQUE's 7 Day Scrub Cream Rinse-Off Formula for every day use. This product got introduced to my skincare routine a few months ago when I got it as a gift. Zero breakouts or dry skin.

DERMA-E's Purifying Daily Detox Scrub
Every 2-3 days, I use DERMA-E's Purifying Daily Detox Scrub as it really leaves my pores clean. Unfortunately, due to the sensitivity of my skin, I can only use it every 2-3 days.

I have reviewed DERMA-E's Vitamin E 12,000 IU Cream before here. This is the only cream that keeps my skin healthy without breakouts or allergy. I've been using it for years so I can vouch for this product personally. While this cream can be used for the body as well, I primarily use it on my face and neck.

While I'm still in the process of experimenting with new products, these are the tried and tested ones that work for me.
