I missed the second half of your question: it's great for skin of all ages. As I said, I used it when I was teen, am still using it at over 30, and my 60-ish mother uses it too. It's a good simple product with nothing gimmicky.

I started using this as a teen, not quite as young as 11-12, but if the child in question feels the need to wash his or her face with more than just water, I'm certain this is a fine product. It's just a straight up clean, without tightness or residue. It's just a well fomulated soap, nothing fancy, really! Start with the mildest version if you're worried, but I have always used the middle one ("mild"). It should be followed by moisturizer (and acne care if needed.)

I keep this soap (for oily skin) in the sink for my husband and I to use but my 9 year old daughter has also been using it (two wks now). She has had no dryness or discomfort using it, although it does sting the eyes so avoid that area. I would not worry because this is clinique- a very skin friendly brand.

If you don't have any acne or exsive oil I would use the facial soap and moisturizer only, sometimes toners can be harsh and unesseary on young sensitve skin. How ever if you do have acne and lots of oil I would recomend the whole three step.

This lasts way longer than any liquid! when I used liquids, a typical bottle lasted 3 or 4 months. A bar of this lasts me well over a year. make sure it is able to drain well. I don't use the container it comes in since that doesn't let it dry, and that makes it softer and get used up faster.

My bars, cleansing twice a day, last me at least 4 months at a time. You can't leave them lying around in water though - they'll go much faster that way.

I like using more than one cleanser at a time so I couldn't give you the most accurate estimation but I know that my bar soap lasts me much longer than the liquid one. I cut the bar soap in half just because it's easier to use and more sanitary that way... and I'd say that the half lasts me 2-3 months. I also feel like the bar soap cleans my face better. I don't have to rinse as much with water when I use the bar soap as opposed to the liquid. Hope this helps... :)

I use it day and night. OH gosh,I would say about 3-4 months for lasting powers. I use every ounce up. One thing nice about the bar soap,once it breaks into little pieces u can still use the smaller pieces and the power is still there for cleaning the face. I don't like the pump soap because it is a waste of resourceses. The bar soap,u can use it till it is totally done.

Well right now i think you have to diffrent conserns, senstive skin and acne. I would say that the mildest of the bars would do a good job of cleansing without damaging your skin but probably wouldn't rapidly clear your acne. However after you skin heals you could probably change to a more powerful cleanser.

No not for acne try their acne line but since you have flakiness already and sunburn please moisturize after the 3 step acne line its a must... I hope you get better... Remember sometimes your skin has to get use to something new so give it time to work.. every time you switch product routine it takes time for your skin to get use to and please sunscreen is a must outside!

answer 6
It is good for acne. Be careful of the yellow lotion, dramatically different moisturizing lotion, unless it is the oil free gel. The soap is supposed to be used in conjunction with the other two steps. If you use it alone, your skin will feel really dry. That is because you are pulling the dirts and oils to the surface of the skin. Then the toner removes that and exfoliates. Make sure you are also removing makeup before you use the soap. It isn't a makeup remover. If you are sunburnt, be careful with the toner as it has salicylic acid in it which could hurt. When you skin heals from the sunburn add a scrub to your skincare routine. That will take care of the flaky patches. Right now, a lightweight oil free hydration in addition to your current moisturizer will help.
Best of luck to you!

If you're skin is peeling from the sun, it may be a good idea to stay away from bar soaps for awhile since they tend to dry out the skin a bit. Try a gentle milky cleanser like cetaphil until the peeling goes away. In terms of acne, I don't know if this formula contains anything that actively fights it. Try the clinique soap targeted for acne... it's the one in the blue case.

Yes, I think it might be okay for you, in the mild formula. Don't get the water too hot, and don't pick at your skin. I would also suggest Clinique's "Comfort on Call" and maybe use witch hazel and cotton balls instead of any harsh astringent. Sometimes if my skin is really looking red and gross, I brew a little cheap green tea, let it cool to room temp, and then splash it on my face. Also, you should probably try to drink a little extra water each day, and maybe see if taking vitamins would be an option for you. I think Sephora has some kind of better-skin vitamins they sell (Boscia brand?). Or if you live near a Whole Foods Market, I think that might be another place to look into the nutritional aspect of getting your skin healthy again. They might also have a soothing oatmeal soap or something like that. Good luck!

The lighter the shade, the milder the soap. Maybe your sample was extra-mild and you got the mild one which is for combination to dry skin instead of dry to super dry skin. The darker soap is for oily skin.

It is my understanding that the colors are correlated with the strength of the soaps. For example, the lightest color is geared towards sensitive skin and the darker ones for oily skin. So if the colors seem different, you may be using a different formulation. :)
