The best wipes I found for ake up removal believe it or not are at my local dollar store ... they cost $1.25 for a pack of 50 wipes.  They are hypoallergenic and they work great !!!  As far as face wash I use a product called Spectro Gel it's a soapless face wash.

Try Clinique.

Quoting momtodab:

i tend to have oily skin so some harsh face washes don't work well for me? I plan to read all the ingredients of ones I'm seeing but I'm not sure... if i go one night without washing my face i will usually break out. My skin is sensitive and just plain weird...I'm thinking some of it is still from being pregnant and BF, I'm hoping anyways cause its been all weird.. my normal face wash I've always used just isn't working... 

Quoting Janet:

Lot of women like Philosophy. It's too harsh for my skin though.

Quoting juno1:

Love the Philosophy face wash.  I've been using it for years.  I love the moisturizer as well...  but just as good if not better for moisture, organic Avocado oil and or Coconut oil...you can get those right at the market!

Oh ok. I've nevet heard of that.

Quoting WILDCATGAL78:

It's a moisturizer that you can use to lighten up the dark spots on your face. They also have soap and some other products.

Quoting momtodab:

Ambi? Whats that? 

Quoting WILDCATGAL78:

I like Oil of Olay for face wash and moisturizer. I also like to use Ambi because I still have the "pregnancy mask" so I use it to even out my skin tone. For makeup I just use drugstore varieties like Cover Girl, Revlon, Maybelline etc.

I use off brand st ives, but i add a few drops of tea tree oil to it and then also take a cotton.ball wet it and add 2 drops of tea tree pull to my problem spots. It made it a bit worse at first but after the first week or so i started to see it clear up.

Home made face wash, sugar scrub once or twice a week, baking soda and oatmeal scrub once a week.  My skin is so sensitive those are the only washes that don't eat my skin.  Makeup, Mary Kay Timewise.  Again, the only thing that doesn't eat my skin- all other make ups, even "hypoallergenic" or sensitive skin formulations will result in raw skin patches on my face.
