On a whim I bought this at Walmart and I'm so happy that I did! It's so creamy and leaves my skin so soft, which I need during the winter months because my face gets so dry, on top of the dry skin I already have.
I have been using Noxzema for 35 years. It doesn't seem possible that I first used it as a teenager (as a cleanser and moisturizer), when I began learning how to maintain my complexion, because Noxzema's aroma takes me back to that time like it was last week! Last time I went shopping for my Noxzema, I didn't have my damn reading glasses with me, so I accidentally bought this "moisturizing" formula. I'm sure I'd used it before, somewhere along the years, but I have always, always used the "original" formula. I find that this formula dissolves makeup "magically" just like the original formula, and it leaves my face feeling soft, smooth, and fresh. This formula is much creamier than the original, which feels kind of "stiff" until I rub it over my skin. The moisturizing formula doesn't smell nearly as good, for my nose. It smells slightly of baby powder...still a nice, clean smell...but I love the invigorating, happy smell of the original. (Heck, I still miss the "original" Original with phenol and sodium hydroxide...back when it was marketed as a cleanser-makeup base-night cream!).
I usually buy the Original Noxzema, but I picked this up by accident instead. I miss the Original Noxzema smell, but other than that it's quite similar. Time and time again, I try something other than Noxzema and am disappointed. I have very fair, dry, sensitive skin and nothing works better for me!
Also, many people know to use Noxzema for sunburn and as a cleanser, but it has many more uses! You can use it as a mask, a makeup primer, a night cream, a zit cream, shaving lotion, on bug bites, and as a hand cream. It makes a great daytime hand cream because it is not greasy and won't gunk up everything you touch.
I am 13 years of age and I've been struggling with acne for about 3 years. I have had tons after tons of acne cleansers and kits. Nothing and I repeat NOTHING has really EVER cleared my acne. I have very oily skin everywhere except around my lips which is super dry and peeling. I have some cystic like acne around my lips and in my T-Zone but, other than that it's all zits everywhere else. I have never had acne on my cheeks (I'm sure why) but, the hot-spots for my acne are always around my lips and between my eyebrows.... some zits sometimes pop up on my hairline. I bought this at a drugstore because of it's price and i was hoping maybe this could be the product to finally help my acne more than my previous uses. I have been using this for about 2 and a half weeks; morning and night. So far, my skin feels clean and oddly VERY cold for about an hour after I use it. I'm not sure if this is normal: my acne bleeds and pops almost immediately after i wipe it off. It hasn't gotten rid of any acne yet. If anyone knows what I could use for my face to get rid of my horror story please do. Again, like i said, i have very oily skin and nothing has helped so far: everything i buy either does absolutely nothing or it worsens my acne. I'm pretty sure I have rosacea because my cheeks are ALWAYS no matter where i am are always very red. I use foundation because I go to school and people sometimes make remarks about my acne so i cover it up. To be honest I think it's making my acne worse but, until i find something to clear my acne I WILL USE FOUNDATION. please someone help. its appreciated.
I picked this up at Walmart for around $ 4 or so. I usually use the original formula but thought I would try this. It has a different texture than the original - a lot creamier. You can certainly feel the moisturizers in it. It is pleasant on the skin and has a little bit of a tingle. Takes my makeup off well, I just have to wash my face twice. At night I mix this with a little bit of St. Ives Apricot scrub to exfoliate and follow up with some basic Qil of Olay Beauty Fluid. Works for me! I alternate this with the original formula. I now only use Noxzema to wash my face for the past 6 months and my skin has never been better!
Noxzema??? That's for teenagers with acne! Or so I thought! I remember using the non-moisture one as a kid w/ the pump bottle. Fast fwd 20 yrs and I'm suffering from dry areas around my mouth and on nose and between eyebrows so bad I was at my wits end. I tried every fancy cleanser/skin care in existence and nothing would work for more than an hour. Well my mother said 'maybe it's eczema, try Noxzema'. I laughed. Well she had the last laugh because this cleanser plus cetaphil cream have HEALED my skin... For like $9/huuuge tub at rite aid. When I think of the thousands of dollars I flushed down the toilet when the answer lied in good old Noxzema and Cetaphil, I cringe. Yes it's in an 'unhygienic' tub well the product is the consistency of crisco how are u supposed to get it out? Wash your hands first! Sorry for the reference to crisco, this stuff deep cleans and tingles and doesn't leave my face tight. TG I've (re)discovered noxzema!!!
Okay so i really like this product. I been having random pimples lately and i really needed something to deep clean my skin to get rid of some excess oil. This product is good for that. It tingles but the tingle is tolerable unless you sensitive skin. I tend to let it sit on my face for about 2 minutes so it can really get deep in my pore. Some say it gives a "Film" feeling once it is rinsed off. I havent experience the film at all. When i rinse the product i use a warm wash cloth to take it off then pat my face dry. I leave my skin soft, moisturized and clean. Defiantly a staple of mine.

-horrible product for sensitive skin types
I love this product! My skin is oily and not sensitive. I can handle 10% benzoyl peroxide without any irritation. I recommend this for people with similar skin types to mine especially for the price. Do not try it if you have sensitive skin.
Didn't really do anything for my skin.
I used to use this product day and night until I realized that it wasn't helping my skin at all. In fact, it dried it out, especially during the winter months. Sometimes it even irritated the skin around my nose and forehead.
I don't think I'll repurchasing this product.
This is my favourite product ever, you can get this from your local drugstore for around 5 dollars. Its white solid cream feeling. I don't really like the idea of putting my fingers in the pot, and increasing bacteria so I have to be careful. This has a very strong methol smell but I like it and it makes me feel fresh and wakes me up.It removes all makeup and moisturizes, at the end you may feel like there's a film of cream on your skin, it will go away that's how it works. YOU SHOULD KNOW : this product will not cure your acne, get rid of your pores or it may not even show any results with you. I have very low maintenance skin and I just want a quick and cheap cleanser that will remove my makeup.
