I like this facial cleanser a lot. This is definitely a classic cleansing cream. This cleanser doesn't lather yet it cleans my face thoroughly. It also washes off my make up thoroughly. Love the refreshing tingle but I'm not a fan of the overpowering medicinal smell. All in all still a great cleanser and this doesn't irritate my sensitive skin which is an added bonus.
I really love this stuff. It removes makeup really well, and it makes my skin feel very soft and refreshed. With other cleansers, they feel really good for a few days, and then my skin starts to develop a tolerance of them and the effects go away. That doesn't happen with Noxzema! My skin consistently feels great after washing with it. Definitely a staple product for me.
Also, I've used the Equate brand of this. They have the same ingredients, as far as I can tell, but the original just feels creamier to me, and it leaves my skin feeling more refreshed.
Definitely worth the buy.
Cleans without overdrying, but still gets rid of oil and make-up.
If the eucalyptus is irritating to more sensitive skin, than I would recommend Spectro gel (which is equally effective).
I actually use Noxzema as a shaving cream too, particularly in the bikini areas, because it is very gentle and mousturizing, but I also find that it does double duty in treating inflammed areas (usually from razor burn).
the Eucaplytus oil in this irritates my skin : ( I prefer oil cleansers.
I seem to be one of the few who does not like this product.I read sooo many glowing reviews that i decided I couldn't not try it. I was expecting amazing results, and instead i got gross, peeling skin around my nose and cheeks. I didn't feel it left my skin very clean either. It didn't have much of an effect on my acne. I foolishly used this for a rather long time expecting magical results, but it just irritated my skin more and more. I have a lot left in the jar now, and I use it as shave cream for my legs. NEVER putting this on my face again.
Sensitive skin people beware!
I liked this at first but after a while it left a residue on my skin and I started breaking out and my skin became extremely oily. Love the scent and the feel, it just didn't work for my skin.
I used to use this in high school. I'm not sure why I ever stopped using it, but I recently started using it again in the last few months, and my how I have missed it! I missed the smell, and the tingly cool feeling on my face! This stuff makes my face really smooth and really shrinks my pores for me. When I have an occasional acne breakout, I'll leave this on my face for a good half hour and then wash it off. Usually the acne disappears in two days or less. This product is works for me, and is dirt cheap! I'll never stray again!
I've been using this for 2 months and I wanted to write a review after 1 week. The tub is an amazing deal: 12 oz for $4. It'll last months with cleansing twice a day. I love this for taking off my makeup at night. I'm actually motivated to wash my face before bed. I smear it on and wipe off with a warm damp towel. Done. No splashing my face and getting the counter soaking wet. I love the smell and the light menthol feel. My hormonal breakouts aren't nearly as bad and my oily skin is tamed. I use it to soothe sunburns and as a moisturizing face mask. I also use it with my Olay brush with no problems. This is a keeper on all counts!
I love Noxzema. It's a classic, old school product and has been used by women in my family for as long as I can remember. I love the scent and the tingly feeling I get while using it. It's like you can literally feel it cleansing your pores! It's a great makeup remover as well. Sometimes, I'll massage it into my dry skin and then use tissues to wipe it off, then I'll actually wash my face. The product is pretty cheap as well, and you get a ton of product for your money - a little goes a long way, so a tub of this stuff lasts me a long time. I don't think I'll ever find something to replace this miracle product. It works WONDERS for sunburns as well. Massage it into the sunburned skin and your skin will just absorb it. It takes the burn and sting right out. Amazing!
I've only used this product twice and it's magnificent. The scent isn't that desirable, a little strong but it kind of grows on you! :)
The texture is smooth, cool and buttery. I wet my face first with warm water, dry my hands and scoop some into my hands and rub onto my face. It barely takes a dent out of the product when you get a nice, thick scoop to smooth onto your face. There's a lot of product in the tub! (It ranges from 4-6 dollars at different stores, I think for the pretty large container the product comes in is a pretty good value for the price)
It tingles and feels pretty refreshing! I keep it on my face for a minute, then I carefully rinse the majority of the Noxzema Cleansing Cream off of my face with warm water and then I splash my face to make sure to rinse off any excess! When I wash it off it sort of makes my face feel funny, like if you make rubber wet or something, but once I pat it dry with a towel it's baby-skin smooth and the next morning my acne is visibly minimized - ALREADY! It doesn't moisturize as much as I thought it would, and my face gets a little dry, but it does an alright job in balancing the skin's state. It's great! I bet there are better acne fighting cleansers and products out there, but for now, Noxzema Cleansing Cream hits the spot! :)
