Cleansers -Noxzema -Original Skin Cream

on 8/4/2018 1:46:00 PM


I would recommend this cleansing cream to anyone but those with very dry skin. I have dry, acne-prone skin myself, and while it worked great at eliminating pimples, it ultimately left my skin feeling a bit too tight and stripped. It was a crying shame, because I loved the smell of this product and how well it soothed my irritated skin. If you don't have problems with dry skin, snap this gem up.

Toners -Noxzema -Extra Strength Astringent Pads


I've had these pads for a while and have been using them faithfully in an attempt to finish up the tub, but I'm really not a fan. My least favorite part is the SMELL. Way too strong! Next, I hate the weird sticky film that these pads leave on my face. I immediately need to wash my face with cleanser right afterwards, which further dries out my skin.

I'm going to go back to using the Stridex alcohol-free pads. I have no idea if either one actually works on my skin, because 1) I don't have a great track record with salicylic acid, and 2) my acne is mostly hormonal. But the Stridex ones are far more pleasant to use, so at least I can pretend like it's working for my acne.

Cleansers -Noxzema -cleansing lotion plus moisturizers

on 3/4/2017 1:20:00 PM


I have been using this cleanser on and off since I was a teen in the 70's. I finally rediscovered this again in my fifties. This stuff is so wonderful, I don't know why I ever left it. I think we are all always on the search for better, newer, improved products and somehow this wonder got forgotten. I happened to have had this in my stash so when I needed a new product I thought, why not? So out it came into rotation. Now after using this for almost 4 weeks straight, I don't know why I would ever have stopped using it. I love this cream! It is gentle on my facial skin. I like the refreshing menthol scent. While it has a slight menthol feel and it refreshes my skin while removing stubborn makeup and it leaves me feeling moisturized and my skin soft and hydrated, I have never experienced any irritation, no dryness, and I have no complaints at all with this one! I never feel like I have to rewash my face to get rid of residue after using this like I do with other cleansers or makeup removal wipes. This removed even the clingiest of mascaras and eyeliners too. I will have to say that I do not use waterproof mascara though so I don't know how it works in removal. My stubbornest mascara is the Two Faced Better Than Sex and it sticks so well that my makeup wipes and cotton pads, micellar water, soaps, creams, and lotions can't fully remove it the first wash and it takes some effort to get it all off but this Noxzema does. I am already a good quarter of the way into the container and I will happily repurchase. This has been around for decades and for good reason. It's fantastic and it works. It's easy on the budget too at less than $4 for the 12 oz. jar. Yes, please!

Hair Removal -Noxzema -Spa Shave 4 Blade Razors

on 12/28/2016 8:22:00 AM

Nah, it's cool, Noxzema. I totally have ten extra minutes every morning to stand in the shower with my arm over my head, going over the same spot on my underarms twelve times in a sad attempt to remove all the hair and only ending up with a numb arm and razor burn. It's fine. I really don't mind.
And it's a-okay that after another ten minutes of hacking at my leg hair with your Spa Shave razor, I still have enough hair to make chirping sounds if I rub my legs together.
I can't wait to try this razor on my bikini area.

Don't buy these.

Cleansers -Noxzema -Triple Clean Anti-Bacterial Cleanser


This is the only cleanser I trust not to break me out. It reduces oil and helps keep my skin clear. I've tried lots of salicylic acid containing cleansers and they never seem to help. The Triclosan in this product works much better for my skin. It also takes off my make up perfectly. My only cons are that it leaves my skin feeling a bit rough and less hydrated. I also wish it was all natural. I probably wouldn't use if I didn't have acne prone skin for those reasons but it's perfect for right now and the only cleanser I trust to not give me a huge hard cyst under my skin.
