The serum addresses to normal/combination to oily skin and you should start the routine but cleansing and toning thoroughly your skin. A solid choice would be the Klairs Facial Toner. The toner is important especially for the sensitive skin. If your skin is very sensitive, you may want to add a few drops of the serum into your regular serum/lotion. It’s important to give time to your skin until it fully adjusts to the formula.
