Face moisturizer for 4yo
 
I'm looking for some recommendations on a good face moisturizer for my 4yo DD. She has very sensitive dry skin, and I really want to use a product that's more 'safe', and free of all those parabens, additives, etc. There's tons available and of course it gets overwhelming. I have a huuuuge bottle of a body lotion, but for her face I want something that's non-comedogenic.

If you have a favorite face lotion product that is safe/natural with ingredients you can pronounce, let me know :-)

Coconut oil?

Will coconut oil not clog her pores? I know she's only 4, but I have struggled with problem skin since I was about 9, so I'm just extra anxious for her skin :)

Coconut oil. It shouldn't clog pores.

I use coconut oil as my facial moisturizer and my skin was perfect with it. I've slacked over the past week and got a zit:(

wow, I never expected so many votes for coconut oil!! I'll be using it on her tomorrow, and returning that little tub of over-priced stuff I bought at Target :-)

Consider one with SPF?

For my sensitive problem/combo skin and presumably for a child's:
Aubrey Sea Buckthorn Cream (not really creamy, actually quite light)
Juice Organics for a heavier/creamier feel in winter
possibly just Argan Oil (I'm just trying it out; I mixed it into an oil free cream for a while and will now try it by itself)

I am mostly indoors at present. When I am out SPF is important.

Weleda baby cream is awesome in my experience! Especially in winter we use it all the time on kids (and our) faces.
