I have oily skin, with a very oily t-zone. i get occational pimples and hormonal breakouts. I want to try products with glycolic acid. I am interested in a cleanser, toner (10% glycolic acid) and moisterizer (2% Salicylic Acid and 10% glycolic acid) which all contain aha's or glycolic acid. Is having it in all three too much? and if so, where is it best to use it (cleanser, toner and/or lotion)?

If the products are water washable, you don't need cleanser. Cleansers in general do not stop breakouts, they are necessary only if you have to remove water insoluble makeup or silicones. Toners are usefull only if you can't tolerate moisturizer and they should not contain alcohol that irritates skin.

I would go with 2% moisturizer initially. If you skin tolerates it, you could try adding the glycolic acid.
