So, it seems like the only thing you are doing is using the cetaphil soap, correct? If the soap is working for you, great! But soaps and cleansers tend to dry the face out, which can result in more acne later on. If that is the case, I suggest you use the money you have budgeted to buy something to moisturize your face. Jojoba oil does moisturize, but not as conveniently as actual formulated moisturizers. It's too greasy, and putting straight jojoba oil all over your face would make it noticeably shiny and gummy-looking. Jojoba oil is great as a compliment to other moisturizers, and for many other things, but will not likely function so well alone. On a minimalistic regimen such as yours, I would recommend skipping the extras like Jojoba oil, and just get a good face moisturizer.

I do not have experience with vitamin B5.
