13 years old, dd starting to wear a bit of light make up,need to start an easy skincare routine. Want something reasonable quality for sensitive skin,natural if poss. Not too worried re cost(within reason).

Her 13 year old brothers have a few black heads and the odd spot,need to start them on a routine too.

I bought the Sam Farmer range for my DS 13.

I initially bought the travel pack (face wash, body wash, shampoo, conditioner and moisturiser) to see how he liked it and then ended up with the full size versions after getting the teen seal of approval.

I find steam and a comedone extractor great for blackheads but it may not be suitable for a teen, worth a look maybe?

My 12 year old DS uses the Body Shop Tea Tree face wash - the foaming one. It's really helped clear up his blackheads and has done wonders for my spot prone skin.

It's not completely free of nasties but we both use it daily, neither of us has had reactions and I have sensitive skin.

I've also heard the Liz Earle range is good for teens.

cetaphil wash is good , recommended by Dr Sam Bunting for teen skin

Liz Earle cleanse and polish. It's amazing, comes with lovely muslin cloths to really clean the skin, and the toner spray plus one of the moisturisers is your full skincare routine. Lovely botanical smells as well, so not too feminine for the boys either. They do men's versions too.

They do small tester kits to see if it suits.
