Amie, you can buy it in Waitrose or direct from the website. Very gentle and was designed for young skin. The Morning Fresh face wash is lovely (I use it), they do a rose micellar water and have two moisturisers.
Ok, I've just been looking on the Boots website and this is what I'd get her: Face wash - non-foaming and therefore less drying. I know it looks expensive but you use such a teeny amount it will last months. If she's got dry patches this will definitely avoid drying it out any more.
This alternative face wash is a bit cheaper and looks good too. That whole range is designed for young skin so is probably worth a look and she may prefer the packaging etc.
This moisturiser looks ok (the Botanics range is generally decent) and I don't think would be too heavy for her. V good price too.
That said, she probably has fabulously resilient skin and would be fine with a tub of Astral (£1 from Superdrug, apparently).
I second Amie and the French pharmacy brands. If you find the French brands expensive, maybe you could sign up to Escentuals website newsletter. They have 30% off all French pharmacy skincare promotions every few months. That's when I stock up on my skincare.:-) Also this range looks good, has good ingredients and is available in Superdrug. www.goodthingsbeauty.com/superfruits.php
