My current skin care routine:

At night:

🌻 In the shower, I use lukewarm water to wash my makeup off and remove excess oils that many have built up and become dirty throughout the day.
🌻 Then, I use L'Oreal Go 360 Clean Ideal Facial Cleanser for Sensitive Skin ($4.34 at Walmart) to remove any leftover makeup & oils that are beneath the surface of my skin. I use the small exfoliating brush that comes with it to work the product around for about 30 seconds, then I use my finger pads to massage the product into my skin for 15 fifteen seconds before rinsing my face.
🌻 After this, I use Family Dollar Deep Cleansing Skin Cream ($2 at Family Dollar) to cleanse again because I feel like this product really gets in my pores and cleans it. Something similar to this product is Noxema.
🌻 After my shower, I use Dickinson's Witch Hazel ($4.89 at Target, although there is a cheaper one from the same brand) to tone my skin. This products is THE holy grail of all skin care products.
🌻 Sometimes I may use a little more of the Family Dollar Deep Cleansing Skin Cream and leave it on to moisturise my face, or I will use Burt's Bees Soap Bark and Chamomile ($6.99 at Target) to moisturise.

In the morning:

🌻 I use the Witch Hazel Toner on my face before putting on makeup.

I exfoliate 2-4x a week with either St. Ives Green Tea Blackhead Scrub ($3.53 at Walmart), Equate Beauty Apricot Scrub ($1.94 at Walmart), or honey and ground coffee. I opt for the honey and ground coffee, but all of these products do something a little different for me so I tend to exfoliate 3 times a week on average.
