Best skincare products for a pre-teen?

Dd is 12 & is showing signs of puberty

The other day she was complaining that she had some bumps on her face & today I noticed the start of a spot on her nose.

She has always had sensitive skin & is allergic to perfumed stuff & cheap cosmetics. I personally think that soap & water is a bit harsh for her.

I read that the Liz Earle hot cloths are good for teen skin. Is that right? Any other reccomendations for a good, sensitive skin cleanser?

Have a look on caroline hirons blog
I like balmology cleansing balm, there's also some Occo stuff in TK Maxx at the minute which is heavily reduced and gentle
For cheaper I would look at boots botanics cleansing balm. Then just use a hot flannel to remove. Boots botanics moisturisers are nice too

Elemis fresh skin range is designed for teens plus a bit cheaper than adult Elemis. C Hirons advises girls don't start skin are regime until after their first period.

I know this is an old thread but any new tips on early teenage skincare? For a very low maintenance 11 year old?!

Mine like the Good Things range - you can get it in boots.
Or the superdrug hot cloth cleanser.
