One of the better cleansers i've ever used...left my face feeling fresh and cool, and i've noticed much less breakouts after i started using this. i'd like it better if it was in a pump bottle rather than a little pot, but meh, not a big deal at all

This is my HG of cleansers! I use this with a damp wash cloth to remove my makeup, then follow up with a face wash. It does leave a film on my face, so that's why I wash after. It is the best at digging down deep and removing all of your face makeup! I have been using this since I was a teenager.

i used this all through middle school and high school and had absolutely perfect skin. then i moved to college and started trying other crap b/ i was told noxzema is bad and oil-free foaming cleansers are better. awful decision - skin became tempermental and acne-prone! i was stupid and continued using all sorts of crap before finally realizing that almost all things geared towards oily skin made it worse. i'v been using noxzema again for the past few months and my skin is looking sooooo much better and healthier. less oily and no breakouts at all. UPDATE: thank goodness i decided to go back to my trusty noxzema a couple of months ago! right now my entire skincare routine consists of washing with noxzema in the am and pm... and that's it (no toners or moisturizers)! and my skin is fantastic! no irritation, dryness, or clogged pores, and my skin is nicely smooth and even. i'm a true believer in the "less is more" philosophy... noxzema's all i need.

I have used noxzema most of my life and it's been great. I have tried other things before but nothing works like this. I love the smell.

I will always love Noxema Skin Products! As the old commercials of the early 80's said" Beautiful Skin Begins With Noxema!" It's tingling and smells very fresh and I'll always use it.

This is not a very good cleanser. It leaves makeup on the face, and that can lead to break-outs. It does feel good though--but I expect more than that from a cleanser.

I was surfing through the different products here on MUA and came across Noxema. When I was a teenager, I used Covergirl makeup with Noxema and broke out constantly - my mother just chalked up to teenaged acne. Well, as I got older and went on to better foundation, I never had any trouble with my skin. Then, prompted by a magazine article, I remember reading about a model who couldn't do without her Noxema cleanser, so naturally, I ran right out and bought some. Well, you guessed it - I immediately broke out. All those teenage years I suffered, not knowing it was the Noxema in the foundation! Now, reading these reviews, I was surprised to see that lots of other people had the same reaction.

My new HG! I put it on my face when it's damp and let it sit for a few minutes to let it tingle and deep clean. Doesn't overdry either.

Don't use this wash if you break out easily and have oily skin...its a definite no! I tried this a long time ago and was scolded by several people, including my derm. I bought a tub of it on clearance for rubbing into sunburnt skin--and thats it.

I will never buy a different brand of facial skin care products, ever again! I love Noxema. I use the original formula face cleansing cream, the original formula face cleansing lotion, the triple clean salicilic acid pads, and the new pre-moistened face cloths. The smell is my favorite for any skincare line; this stuff removes makeup and deep cleans, helps keep my moderate acne problems at bay, the acid pads fight blackheads & the oil-clogged pores, I love the tingle, and I love the fresh, smooth, and new feel my face gets after cleansing. This stuff is dirt cheap at any Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Eckerds, grocery store, wherever. It's been around for almost a century, I think, and has been used for many different purposes, including for soldiers' raw, tired feet in WWI!!! Hey, this stuff is great for your skin, head to toe! The eucalyptus, menthol and camphor smell is practically divine. I think my face gets cleaner just smelling it . . .
