My dd is now 14, but has needed to treat her skin for several years. She is currently using Lancome - I buy this for her, as I would rather she used something 'good'.
Our gp has prescribed some cream for spots for both ds and dd. Neither of them suffer terribly, but he - thankfully - feels that it should not be necessary to cope with spots at all!

how old is your dd?

To be honest, I would try and stay and steer clear from anything too harsh/with chemicals in etc.

how about trying Simple

just had a look on your profile page - she's 10 then. I'd try aveeno - no harsh chemicals and they do an acne range aimed at younger folk, with a cleansing bar (like a soap) and a face wash too, as well as toners and moisturisers (if she's washing her face I'd use a moisturiser even if her skin is a little oily, it will help balance it out).

My DS (yes, DS!) uses good old Clearasil, which I used as a teenager many moons ago. Still works! use it myself sometimes when I have a break out. Perhaps use something really gentle, like Simple, most of the time, and use Clearasil/similar just on the really spotty areas?

you'll probably need to go online for aveeno - but it is very very good (a bit more expensive but gentle on young skin).
