Best facial wash for 10yr old DD with sensitive skin

My 10yr old DD has started getting little pimples on her face. They don't have a head so are not full blown spots. I bought her a vitamin E face wash from Body Shop as the shop assistant recommended it but it has made her face red and sore. My MIL has very dry, sensitive skin and maybe my DD has inherited it. Can anyone recommend a wash wash that is good for sensitive skin and won't dry her skin out.

Tesco does an own-brand range called My Skin which is specially for teenage skin. I'm not a teenager but I do have sensitive skin and it's great. ATM it's £1.75 for each product.

Thank you SSP. How are you with Simple products?

I got DD an elemis one for teenage skin. Expensive, but it has been good. She is also ten and had got those little pimples, which have now cleared up.

My grd-dghtr 's skin problems started with small pimples at age 11 and now at 12yrs she has a large crop of spots on her forehead, few on nose and chin. This is known as the T zone I understand. I have posted to see if anyone could help. I have bought her products for Dermologica for teenage skin, as it was recommended by a mother on the preteen thread, whose daughter's skin improved dramatically with these products. Unfortunately this has not really made a great improvement for my gr-dghtr though helps a little. It is expensive but you can buy a trial pack of miniatures for about £12 I think.

My dil uses Elemis products though I didn't know they did one for teenage skin.

Elemis Freshskin is the name of the range. DD has the face wash and moisturiser and I am impressed with them.

There is also a natural wash & toner combined by Laidbare which sounds good. Not tried yet tho.
