1st routine I am going to try

Ok, after 4+ hours looking researching meds/wash, identifying what kind of acne and taking notes on other members on the site ~ I have my first routine to try: First Week AM: Gentile wash with Neutrogena Extra Gentile Cleanser w/baby brush (usually will be in shower). Pat face dry with sponge. Wait 15 min. Apply Benzamycin (8/30,8/31,9/2,9/3,9/5). Wait 30 mins. Apply Clindamycin (9/1/, 9/4). Wait 30 mins. moisturize with ProActive green tea moisturizer Throughout day: oil blotter sheets and if i work hard and sweat ~ may do an oatmeal wash. PM: Gentile wash with Neutrogena Extra Gentile Cleanser. Wash ProActive Extra Strength Cleanser (cuz of microbeads) Tone with Proactive toner (no-alcohol) wait 15 mins. Apply Retin-A ((9/1,9/4). wait 30 mins. Note- first week suggestions state only use every third day. Apply Differin (8/30,8/31,9/2,9/3,95) wait 30 mins. moisturize with Fruit of the Earth Vitamin E moisturizing gel. I am trying to use up what I have in the house. Although I am going to get a new moisturizer, jojoba oil ~ which i think i can get from GNC ~ Meijer didn't have it. I want to cancel the ProActive shipments, so i also need to find out a good exfoliating scrub. Addressing and trying are much better than just accepting for me. Now I am off to try and figure out what could work for my daughter. UPDATE (already, lol) I purchased the baby brush @ my local dollar store - feels too hard. Will pick up a new name-brand one.
