pre-teen/teen face wash (boy) rec's needed

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I think the title says it all... I need some face wash rec's for a pre-teen boy.  Is there something on the market like 'Clean and Clear' for boys?  DS uses an 'all in one' shower wash (shampoo and body wash) but he is staring to need something different for his face a couple times a day.

 

Thanks

I use Aveeno Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser and I have my eleven yo son use it also.  I have tried various products (I have combination skin and am prone to break-outs - even in my forties!) and none of them seem to work great (if anyone knows of something that works great, let me know).  What I like about the Aveeno is that it doesn't have a lot of fragrance, is relatively inexpensive ($6 or $8 a bottle), and lasts a long time because it is a foam.  It doesn't work any better or worse than other products I have tried for acne-prone skin.

 

Good Luck!

This may sound wonky...but the best thing I've found for my skin is honey (I have combination skin w/ hormonal break outs).  I use about a tsp of raw honey (don't know if it matters that it's raw) rubbed onto my face and then rinsed off with warm water.  It's surprisingly not sticky...and I've used dozens of various cleansers for my face and it seems to work better than anything else I've tried.

I might try the Aveeno wash.  The Aveeno lotion doesn't give him a rash.
