Am I over exfoliating my skin??

Hi I’m pretty new to the skincare world especially with acids but recently I started using tatcha deep cleans with the water cream and paulas choice bha. My skin has been looking incredible but I’m worried I’ll over exfoliate my skin! Any thoughts, I also received the kate somerville aha moisturizer in a subscription box! Should I give that away or would it have benefits! Any advice helps 🙂

It's a fantastic cream. Smells heavenly.  It works to brightens the skin  with Pineapple, pumpkin and papaya. It is a great treat for the skin.

Does you skin feel dry or tightened? Those are signs of over exfoliation. I personally layer my active Ingredients (exfoliants). It also depends if your doing this morning and night or everyday. The skin definitely does not need that much exfoliation. 
personally I use a lactic acid (every other night sometimes less) for my exfoliation . But I do use my glow recipe toner every morning.
