This cleanser is like my guilty pleasure. I know the chemicals in it is not good for my skin or my insides but there's no doubt it helps with my hormonal, cystic, adult acne. By the morning, most of my pimples are gone or dried up. My face looks more even and less red and blotchy. I can moisturize my face with coconut oil which breaks me out, and cleanse with this afterwards with no breakouts. Without coconut oil it can be a little bit drying but not anything drastic even though my skins leans towards dry. I never use it in my eye area but it does irritate them a little bit more then my Burt's bees cream cleanser. When i first tried this i thought the irritation feeling i got afterwards was intense but i hadnt used anything unnatural on my face for a long time. Its not my cup of tea still but it doesnt bother me as much, feels like any other cleanser. I try to use this only at night when my skin is sane. I just don't know it's almost like I hate that I like this and that it works! Ill update if my opinion changes.
I really liked this cleanser! My sister gave this to me because it didn't work for her, but it worked great for me! I use cream cleaners now since my skin's getting drier as I get older, and I really like this one. It cleans my face and takes off my makeup no problem. I use it with my Olay face brush in the shower and it lathers great and makes me feel squeaky clean, but not like my skin's been stripped of oils or anything. Will definitely buy again!
I absolutely love this stuff. I have Oily/Acne Prone skin, and I've used Clean and Clear, Neutregena, Burts Bee's, and Proactive, but none of them as worked as well as Noxzema. This stuff as prevented me from having a major break out in years and I've been using this stuff for about 6 years. It's gentle but strong enough to prevent and treat acne, but to a degree of course. (Added bonus, this stuff can also wash away my makeup when I'm too lazy to clear it off with makeup remover first.)
I'm in my late 20s and I still get breakouts, especially since I just moved to Florida about a year and a half ago. I've been using this for a about a week now, and so far so good. It's really helping my skin. I still get breakouts, but the deep, gross, cystic ones have disappeared. Now, if my skin breaks out, it's small, and not noticeable. For the price, you can't beat it.
Great product! I looked for it everywhere (CVS, Target, etc) after reading the reviews and finally found it at the Dollar General close to home. Works great, removes my makeup (not eye makeup of course) and doesn't dry my skin. I'm acne prone and have tried everything and you can't beat the antibacterial ingredient. Definitely will purchase this product again and again!
This is great I like it a lot! I love the creaminess of it. It makes my skin feel squeaky clean without feeling tight. I feel it helped a little with my acne also. I will definitely repurchase.
I was initially drawn to this product because of the active ingredient triclosan (I had already been using products that contain salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide). I really love this cleanser because it doesn't make my face feel tight/over dried and it also reduces the redness in my acne and acne scars. If you have any questions feel free to ask! p.s.- I use this product along with others to help keep my skin clear, so I'd try pairing it with other products to find the combination that's right for you.
Tried this product because it contains triclosan, which is the only acne product that works that does not dry me out. For years I used Clearasil Daily Face Wash and also the Walmart version, but when I discovered this cleanser also contained triclosan, I thought I would give it a try. It is a nice product, smell is ok and it lathers well. The only thing that I don't like is that the outside of the tube is sparkly blue and after about a week or so in the shower, the sparkles start rubbing off of the bottle. Every day I have blue sparkles on my hands and my face :( I've tried 2-3 tubes and it happens each time. So, good product, but Noxema-please change your packaging!
This was an ok product....in the Michigan winter. I have combination skin that rarely breaks out. Using this in the cold weather, my skin stayed fairly clear and moisturized, with only a few small breakouts around my hairline; a small price to pay for skin that didn't feel tight and itchy in the winter. However, once it started to warm up outside, my skin immediately became blotchy and broken out all over my forehead, nose, chin and hairline; it's awful and my t-zone feels like an oil slick. My cheeks even developed a rash! I won't be buying this again, and I wouldn't recommend it to a friend.
It wasn't terrible. I loved it for awhile... probably six months. It didn't really do anything for my acne and blackheads, but it didn't make them worse, either. If you want a cleanser that won't break you out, this is a good bet.
However, I didn't realize it was holding me back until I tried the OCM. I figured since it didn't make my acne worse, it was fine... but it didn't make anything better. It kept my skin red, oily, and blotchy. Castor oil fixed all of these problems.
