So I have recently been following the 
Korean skincare routine because it had proved effective for most of my friends. 
It starts with cleanser, toner, then I put on salicylic acid (2%) across my face, then a strong benzoyl peroxide cream on 
acne prone areas, and to top it all off I moisturizer at the end. I also use a facial brush in the cleansing process to 
exfoliate occasionally. Am I doing anything wrong?

Everything sounds good to me except for the salicylic acid & benzoyl peroxide part. I don't think it's necessary to use them both - most people just pick one as to not over-treat the skin.  Using both might irritate your skin and cause excessive dryness.

Having a long regimen is so difficult to keep up especially when you cant see improvement. Now days i just use warm water and micellar water to wash my face. Then a spray toner (im so lazy) and only properly wash my face if i use makeup. For treatment i use tretinoin at night

for me, less is better. I use oatmeal or just water to cleanse. 
What is micellar water, exactly?
