Are there any nice toiletry brands that teen ds will find 'cool' and not 'for girls'.hmm
I want to get him something that seems a bit of a treat, so not epaderm or anything like that and not loreal/nivea/bulldog because he will react to them sadly.

I would also like help with this for my brother in law who loves skin care, bb creams and fake tan!

My DS will use la Roche posay and Avene happily (but he's having trouble with his skin and will use anything that might help alongside the stuff from the Dr). You could look at Green People. It depends what he needs and what he reacts too, I know you said not Bulldog but they have a sensitive range. Clarins men's range is lovely (but more expensive though). Have you looked at qvc? You can use and return within 30 days so any products you find on there could be returned if he reacted to them.

Dermalogica do a very gentle sensitive range and do travel sets with a total skincare routine in some of the ranges that are more manageable cost-wise than buying products individually. It’s not a cheap range, but it is good quality and a little goes a long way.

Neal's Yard's range for men is lovely and very natural/organic so should not irritate his skin. And packaged beautifully too in manly colours smile.

Have a look at Tropic stuff. It's all natural x

My husband has extremely sensitive skin I mean extremely he can't use e45 for heavens sake ! BUT he can use Nivea for men so that must be very hypo allergenic believe me !

Ooh yes, I forgot about Dermalogica! I bought the travel teen set for DS and he liked using that.

Thanks for these, the Green people looks promising.

Green People will refund if he reacts to the products. Their customer service is very good.

I agree tropic stuff is all natural. Been using it for months now and never had any issue with it.

The Sam Farmer stuff is popular with some teens I know but not sure how it would be with your DS skin. It’s definitely not girly.
