Just avoid toner: as it can strip your skin of natural oils and only useful if your skin is extremely oily

Exfoliate?: Dry layers of skin may prevent absorption. A gentle cleansing with exfoliation and not abrasion may allow better absorption of the moisturizer.

Differin (adapalene): Differin (adapalene) gel is like Retin-A and may irratated. Stop using if too dry and see a derm for many other creams for acne that don't dry.
