I want to buy a facial wash for my 12 year old son, he is starting to get blocked pores but I didn't want to get anything too harsh for his skin - can anyone recommend a suitable one?

I've heard great things about Neutrogena's Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit on teenage skins. Comes highly recommended. Hopefully the pink bottle won't put him off!

My boy uses the Nutrogena pink grapefruit, smells delish

Superdrug do a nice TeaTree one that DS (13) likes using.

My 12 year old uses Simple facial wash. He has very dry skin so can't use traditional teen options as they are too harsh.

Tea tree or peppermint Dr Bronner's Castille Soap. I believe the tea tree would be best for it's antibacterial properties but the peppermint would no doubt be a good next best.

Oh, and just to say if you tried this option to avoid getting in eyes as it's pure soap and therefore stingy <ouch>

We use either tea tree or seaweed facial wash, both from body shop. Different skins, mean we cannot use the same.. If you have one of their shops nearby, you can ask them for samples. Get him to try them and see if there if it helps.

Also, google various companies to see if they do samples. The ingredients vary from company to company. Although I am fine with bs tea tree I cannot use boots.

Lush are very good as well. Cannot remember if they do samples.

St Ives blemish fighting or the apricot are also good.
