I have a tween girl, 11, and a 14 year old boy. What should I have them wash their face with? Soap is too drying, but the cleanser I use helps remove makeup. And they both have sensitive skin! Help!!

  • Neutragena is pretty mild and they make a facewash that is formulated for sensitive skin.

  • My almost ten yr old is under the care of a determatologist. She has some breaking out but not too bad. The doctor has her using Cetaphil. It comes in several forms but I bought the one in the pump,it would be easy for both your kids to use in the pump;) GL

  • Clean and Clear, Neutrogena or Cetaphil all work well. Do NOT use soap on the face, it is not made to be used on the face.

  • Cetaphil works very well. Neutrogena and Clean and Clear work great also.

  • an unscented baby soap, like Dr. Bronners. Be sure that they use a light moisterizer, too, like Lush
