What do you recommend ?

La Roche Posay. Mid price, great website, available from Boots (on click & collect, if not in your own branch). Their Effaclar range is very good for teenage skin.

I love the body shop facial range. Tea tree will be good for teenage skin. You get so many good deals with bodyshop and it seems to last ages.grin

Boy or girl?

A girl ! Thank you for your suggestion so far

My DSs (13 and 15) use my Superdrug hot cloth cleanser, or Cetaphil cleanser and a cloth, followed by Aveeno cream on dry patches. This seems to keep spots at bay and doesn't dry their skin out.

How did you persuade the DSes fozzley?
I've tried to persuade mine to wash his increasingly spotty face with something, but he's so far resisting all my efforts.

I appealed to their vanity! Having said that, DS2 sometimes forgets. They both like the smell of the Superdrug one (green tube).

My teen DS asks me to buy him the Boots TeaTree range (he uses the night gel and the little pads) and a wash off for the shower (he likes the Soap&Glory blue gel one, or Bulldog)

DD is 14.6 , she takes her make-up off with BodyShop Camomile ( either the butter balm or the eye make up cleanser)
I bought her Una Brennan (the exfoliant) but she hasn't used it yet.

Hot cloth cleansers are good as they give a gentle exfoliating action.

Liz Earle smile available online as well as big boots stores. Hot cloth cleanser and the facial tonic is a great place to start.

Proper sunscreen with full UVA protection every single day, a lot of aging is uv damage from everyday sun exposure.

I was going to say The Body Shop too. They have a good range of products and there is always an offer around.
