    I had hormonal, csytic acne for years (I was off the pill for a long time) combined with super dry (sometimes combination), super sensitive skin. I tried every product under the sun, including a few you’ve named above, and nothing REALLY worked. It’s been three years and I still swear by these:1. At night, wipe your face with a facial pad soaked in regular old hydrogen peroxide. Then rinse it off.2. Use Jan Mirini 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide wash.3. Use Jan Mirini 5% Benzoyl Peroxide treatment.4. MoisturizeIn the morning, just use the 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide treatment and moisturizer. Or you can choose to use a mild cleanser like Burts Bees Orange Cleanser (I did this in the winter when my skin was super dry). For moisturizer, I use H2O+ marine toner and Dior moisturizer, since they’re made from naturally-derived ingredients and don’t irritate my sensitive skin.
