  • Face wash? What's wrong with soap? The same stuff you use on your body.

  • Soap is VERY hard on facial skin. Alot of the body washes have harsh chemicals and fragrances that can be hell on puberty ridden skin

  • Puberty, when they start getting greasy and gross. I would use a mild foaming cleanser at first like for sensitive skin, then if they do start getting pimples use St. Ives scrub or clean & clear it works great for me.

  • When mine starts to get the oily skin of the teen years and starts to wear makeup, I'll get her a special facial cleaner. Until then, soap is soap.

  • I always used Neutrogena glycerine soap. (brown bar) I had acne as a teen and it was what I was told to use on my face. I had my kids use it and still use it now. It's a mild soap and my dr approves. My dr also recommends Dove. I don't use that but thought I'd pass on the information
