Skin care routines and products are not, ever, based on age but instead by skin type (which can change as we age; Dry, combination, oily, etc). This product is more for dryer skin types (though it can work for combination). If she is prone to acne you may want to be careful with this product, try it out and see how her skin reacts. I hope she is using sunscreen, because underneath sunscreen, this product is absolutely amazing at fortifying the sun protection of the spf besides only being a gentle, hydrating anti-oxidant booster.
Is she acne prone at all? The Artemus blend may be better for a teen with acne prone or combo skin. If not, then the Juno seems like a really great option for someone with normal skin. I have sensitive combo skin and this has been very very gentle for me. Seems like its more hydrating and fortifying than anything else. I can't imagine that would be a bad thing for any age group.

I disagree with the previous answer. The ingredients are all natural oils, so I seriously doubt they're going to cause any damage. I can't even begin to say how surprised I would be.
I think the real answer is that it depends on her skin type. If she's having problems with dry skin, this may be a good product for her. BUT... you might be creating a monster if you give her something this expensive at such a young age. I was fortunate enough to start on very high-end products as a teenager and it's been a habit I've had to maintain over the years. ;) On the other hand, my hair and skin are super healthy and younger looking as a result.
If you decide to get her some, I would also make sure she's using just a tiny bit of it. More is not necessarily better with something like this.
Yes, 13 is too young for this product. It promotes faster cell regeneration, which slows as we age. I wouldn't mess with a her cell regeneration at 13 (or while she's still in her teens for that matter). It's also a very heavy oil, which isn't something most teenagers need and could disrupt her natural balance of oils as a result. Additionally, the smell is quite strong and slightly bitter. Not a smell most 13 year old girls want from their products.
