• Whats the best brand of moisturiser/cleanser for an 11 yr old girl to use??

    My brother-in-law has sole custody of his daughter who is 11, and recently she has started wearing make-up, and as the nearest female relation she has I was wondering what the best cleansing routine would be best for her. My own daughter doesnt wear make up and I only wear when going out. I use Garnier cleansers and moisturisers, but was wondering if there was any suitable for an 11year old. I am also trying to encourage her not too wear too much makeup either. Thanks.
    I know what I use is unsuitable, just unsure of whats on the market these days, and her Dad has no idea at all. So the female advice for her is up to me.

    • Piggy56 says:

      Hi, i would suggest something like Nivea, Dove (i think they do one), as these sort of ones would be a lot gentler on such a young skin,

    • aunty m says:

      A GENTLE FACE WASH IS BEST AT THAT AGE,SUCH AS SIMPLE . SHE SHOULDNT NEED TO MOISTURISE YET. BUT THE OLAY RANGE ARE VERY GOOD AND NOT TOO EXPENSIVE.

    • awoooba says:

      You begginer stuff like neutrogena, it’s a really good cleanser. If she has sensitive skin she should use products from the brand “simple”. She should just start off by using the facial cleansers. . . not toners.

      clinique

    • annie says:

      I don’t think the brand is particularly important to be honest. It matters more that she gets into the habit of caring for her skin generally, and especially removing her make up every day.
      I use one of the wet wipe type removal cloths (Boots cucumber ones are great, especially for sensitive skin), and Simple moisturiser. If she goes to Boots or a similar large chemist, there are usually people on hand to give advice. It may be a bit intimidating for her- perhaps you or your daughter could have a girly shopping trip with her. . .

      Nivea have a new range out for young people. Its called Nivea Young

    • Lucy K says:

      Simple collection is good for young skin its light and not to expensive but loreal is also good cleanser and toner in one x

    • vicky s says:

      you could try the evian face products. I know that they are good for people with sensitive skin so they would probably be suitable for younger skin!! 11 is very young to be wearing make-up though so make sure she does take care of her skin (as you are doing!!)

    • serenity says:

      Use a gentle cleansing milk or lotion, such as simple or neutragena, dove etc. something with a low PH, if you have to but really nothing beats hot soapy water. Just think how much makeup (especially eyeliner) that they wore in the 60′s/70′s, not many spotty people about then and none of these expensive products either.

    • magdadh says:

      I personally think that 11 year old wearing make up on a regular basis is just out of order, but then I suppose it’s just an opinion.

      Until she starts getting acne, the most important thing is to remove makeup at night (gentle foaming face wash will do) and not to dry skin: any plain moisturiser.

    • evieivyovy says:

      I would go for Simple for certain. Its reasonably priced and very kind to the skin. Also Johnsons baby wipes are very good for removing make up and being gentle on the skin ( they are used on babies very delicate areas after all !!!)

    • drama u don't want no drama! says:

      All she needs is a cheap one like Suave. However if he really wants to come out of this experience as Super Dad have him take her to wal-mart, k-mart or CVS/Rite Aid pharmacy -in the health and beauty aisle they will have BONNIE BELL cosmetics. It’s great for a girl. I still wear the flavored lip glosses by them and I’m 30 something. It reminds me of my childhood, and they are great products. You find stuff you like and you stick with them.

    • Flower says:

      Tea tree facial wipes or you could just ask the staff there, that’s what they’re there for afterall

    • kajalcool4u says:

      i tnk garnier for you at this age is not suiatble instead u can use oatmeal scrub made at home , daily
      it cleanses ur skin very well n for a moisturiser you can try the johnson n johnson brand

    • Miss M says:

      try www. yvesrocher. co. uk

    • Purrs. says:

      i think for a girl at that age, its best to use something simple before she starts growing pimples on her face from make up! i recommend mild cleansers/ moisturisers such as neutrogena basic soap or liquid cleanser, or clean & clear products. i’m sure she can use clean & clear products till the day she turn 20. when i was a teenager myself i’ve always used clean & clear and it had never harmed my face in any way.

    • almamanzo says:

      At her age I’m assuming she hasn’t developed a specific skin type. Do not wash face w/soap, it will clog pores and produce more sebum, which then couses acne. Use daily spf (at least 15). I like Aveeno Ultra Calming products, they are very basic for sensitive skin and for makeup I would recommend a tinted moisturizer, which is a little lighter than foundation. Try Bourjois Happy Light Tint tinted moisturizer. She doesn’t need all that heavy high tech products.

    • funky mama says:

      The difficulty in recommending a certain product is not being able to see the childs skin
      Only use a mild cleanser, toner and moisturiser as you don’t want to overload the skin and make it greasy
      I think that it is very important to encourage young girls to use cleansers etc. . as this gets them into a good routine and prepares their skin for later life
      I hope that your brother-in-law and yourself finds this info useful!

      GO TO TESCO AND ASK THEM FOR THEIR OWN CLEANSER MAKE IT WORKS I SHOULD NO I AM CLEAR FROM THE PROB NOW AND IT COSTA LITTLE PRICE LOVE CTINAXX

    • redcherry_yummy says:

      olay, nivea or clean & clear is ok, but i would say she is still too young. i stared using them when i was 15!

    • Sandra D says:

      Mary Kay has a teen line called Velocity. The cleanser cleanses,exfoliates and tones in one products.

    • Issy Dreams. says:

      I would reccomend the Nivea Visage Young range, i use the nivea Visage young Moisturiser and Nivea Visage young Wash off cleansing Gel.

      It’s very good for young skin :)

    • M-J says:

      It depends how her skin reacts to chemicals. . . i have sensitive skin so i like using more natural products like aveeno.

    • Kiana says:

      Nothing beats a baby lotion/cream because it is made for delicate and sensitive skin. As a cleanser, she can use the Johnson&Johnson Lotion (Pink bottle) applying it with cotton wool. If her skin is dry then she can follow it with Johnson& Johnson Moisturising Cream (in a tube). These are also reasonably priced. She doesn’t need chemicals on her face as young as 11. I have used these for as long as I can remember and my skin looks 10 years younger than my actual age (even if I say so myself !) Hope this helps

    • sylvanhue says:

      Yes she could use the Liz Earle range of cleansers and toners and moisturisers. The cleansers are safe enough to use on a new baby. Liz Earle developed the range as she herself had eczema. Everything in the range is made from natural plants, vitamins and minerals.
      My skin has got better and better the longer I use it, I wish I had discovered it at age 11.
      Available on QVC web-site.

    • emstar says:

      It depends on her skin-type really, I had really sensitive skin at that age and either used Johnsons face wash and cleanser or aqueous cream. Aqueous is a moisturiser that takes off make-up easily, cleanses moisurises as well, its suitable for all skin-types and costs 2 pounds for a huge tub of it! Bargain! Ask for it at the chemists and also see what advice they can give you. There are specialist products out there for younger girls, such as clearasil, simple and neutrogena, but I found that these reacted with my skin at that age. Make sure she always takes her make-up off properly as well, or she’ll get spots and no pre-teen (or anyone for that matter!) want those!

    • ne_art1 says:

      I WAS THERE! AT ABOUT HER AGE I STARTED BREAKING OUT, AND HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO WEAR MAKE UP TO CONCEAL IT – VICIOUS CYCLE.

      HERE’S WHAT WORKED FOR ME, I HOPE IT HELPS HER.
      PROACTIVE SOLUTIONS – IT IS WORTH THE MONEY, AND JUST ABOUT THE SAME PRICE AS PURCHASING OVER THE COUNTER STUFF MONTHLY.

      TO REMOVE MY MAKE UP I BUY, DOVE PILLOWS AT WALMART, PLACES LIKE THAT.

      COVER GIRL SELLS A POWDER FOUNDATION, THAT IS VERY HARD TO MAKE IT LOOK THICK, AND WITH CLEAR SKIN IT TAKES LITTLE, I PURCHASE A PACK OF MAKE UP APPLICATORS (FOAM TRIANGLES) FOR $1. 00, USE ONE AND THROUGH IT AWAY, DAILY. IT CANNOT BUILD UP OILS AND BACTERIA FROM YOUR SKIN ON THE SPONGE THAT WAY. – CAUSING MORE BREAKOUTS.

      PROACTIVE SELLS MAKE UP REMOVER , MAKE UP AND ANYTHING ELSE YOU CAN THINK OF, IF YOU WANT TO GO THAT ROUTE. SHE’LL USE LITTLE TO NO MAKE UP, ONCE SHE HAS HER SKIN UNDER CONTROL, IT IS EMBARRASSING.
