I second the Cetaphil range. It may be different there, but ds has the Cetaphil moisturizing cleanser and then he uses Nutraderm moisturizer afterwards. I have used it myself, it really makes skin feel lovely after.
My DDs have sensitive skin, DD2 in particular. We started off with the Simple range - just the gentle face wash and the moisturiser as toner was too much for her. We plumped for simple because she's used their suncream without problems.
Over the summer she tried out Liz Earle, which also worked well for her. She's away at full time dance school now though and living in the college halls so has gone back to Simple for budget reasons!!
I would say try 'Simple' - or a moisturising soap.
I would steer clear of too many products and any chemicals. When I was young the thing to do was to use Clearasil and Oxy and all those - and it made my face blow up with spots and irritation. I have incredibly sensitive skin and I have used Imperial leather soap my entire life and am complimented regularly on my skin and thought to be younger. I use a thin nivea moisturiser and that Apricot exfoliator occasionally. I recently got sold into a range of expensive stuff, cleanser, toner etc - and within a week - face full of spots. I don't believe these products are needed. My mum is the same, always used Imperial Leather soap and she looks a decade younger, no spots, no oil.
