Really helped my skin! Didn't dry my face out, like most products do

Ever since I was 14-15 I started to break out in acne and have pimples. I have oily skin around my nose and the rest of my face is dry. But my main outbreak was by my mouth and chin. I used noxzema every night and it did improve my blackhead were mainly clean and my face started to clear out. When I stopped using it my face broke out again so noxzema helps a lot! It's worth getting even if some people don't like the smell

Oddly, I never used this when I was younger. I started using it over the summer, and now, at 33, I love it.
I don't know what it is about this stuff that soothes my rosacea to normal looking skin (eucalyptus oil can be a rosacea irritant, along with seemingly everything else on God's green earth) but on my good rosacea days, Noxzema takes my skin to the next level and makes it smooth, glowing and so lovely, I could completely skip foundation. On my bad rosacea days, Noxzema still helps soothe down some of the inflammation as well as the steroid cream my doctor gave me....guess which of the two I don't use anymore? Great as a facial cleanse (especially the summer for the cooling effect ), it leaves my skin feeling refreshed, soft and hydrated, glowy and all those wonderful things.
How I use it:
Apply and work in a thin layer all over face and either tissue off, or remove with a wet washcloth. If I tissue off, there's no need to follow with a moisturizer. However, if I use the wet washcloth method, it can leave my skin feeling too tight/dry so I'll work in a tiny bit of coconut oil into my skin afterwards, if needed. Sometimes I'll apply a thicker amount and leave it on for about 5 minutes.
A few qualms
1) Of course you can't use it on the eyes. My ideal cleanser would work all over.
2) Oddly, if I've been drinking (heavily), it reacts somehow with the alcohol and burns my face (*only* when I've been drinking)...I end up with a red mask where I applied the Noxzema. My rosacea flares up into a *beast* when I drink heavily and adding Noxzema on top of it just makes it that much more angry.
3) I wish it came in a squeeze tube (maybe this original formula does and I've just never found it.)
4) While I generally like the eucalyptus/menthol scent, sometimes, it's too strong and I just have to soldier through it.
So while I can't use Noxzema exclusively, I don't mind expanding my super minimal skincare routine to include it for daily use while leaving my tried and true coconut oil for the things that Noxzema can't handle (eye makeup and drinking nights).

This skin cleanser has been around for like 35+ years and was my grandma's favorite for a long time. Its probably ok for ppl with dry, normal skin. I tried it back in high school 10+ years ago & it just irritated & broke me out. No way would I ever use it again. These days there are much more advanced, gentle skin cleansers out there.

I have used Noxzema on and off for years, and this stuff works great for oily, breakout prone skin! This is the only cleanser I have ever used that leaves my naturally shiny skin looking matte, controls my oily skin throughout the day, and keeps breakouts at bay. I prefer the texture of the tub formula (it's thicker and feels nicer on the skin), but also like the convenience of the pump version, which is easier to use and more hygienic. Actually, I wish the tub formula came in a squeeze tube! This will remove all makeup, but it's hard to rinse off (because it's an oil based cream cleanser), so I solve this issue by using the Scrublet that came with the L'Oreal 360 cleanser, and I can get all my makeup off with just one wash and rinse. Foaming cleansers really irritate/break out my skin, and most cream cleansers are too moisturizing for my oily skin, but Noxzema works great! And it smells AMAZING, I look forward to the scent every time I wash my face!

I bought this because everyone said it worked... WELL IT DIDN'T. It made my skin feel like i had a mask on after i washed it off. Btw, IT SMELLS LIKE CRAP.

I love Noxzema orginal. you need to use a makeup remover first if you wear makeup though, but this with a oil makeup remover and clinque turner in number 3 keeps my skin pretty clean and smooth, I use retin-A and when you are using retin-A it's a good idea to be gentle with your choice of cleaner, maybe if I didn't use Rentin-A and a Oil based makeup remover this alone may not be enough but be sure you also massage it inyour skin for a few minutes. it's a great classic :)

When I was younger my dad would make me wash my face with Noxema. I was such a tomboy and clueless about pretty much everything. My parents on the other hand had great skin especially my dad. His main secret was Noxema. Now years later, this product is my BFF. I have one at home and a small size at work so I can wash my face before school. It's so wonderful and refreshing. Especially if you're sunburned. My aunt and cousin also use this. And they also have great skin. It could be a gene thing but I'm sure Noxema has also contributed. I will buy this product for the rest of my life. No joke.

I originally got this, intending to get rid of some of my zits with it. But, it turns out that it doesn't get rid of any of my acne. I would've been pissed and just threw this away, had it not been so versatile.
While my zits weren't going away because of this, it makes my skin, which is oily but starting to dry out from other acne treatments, smooth and less oily looking. I also use it to remove my makeup. I used to get makeup remover, but now I think that Noxema and baby shampoo are better to remove my makeup with. It's also an amazing shaving cream, and it dramatically improves my psoriasis, better than the cream meant specifically for it that I own. It's amazing because I can use this for lots of things that I would've spent more money on without this.

I am on my second tub of this & loving it. A few months prior to trying this I was putting all kinds of chemicals on my skin in attempt to unclog my pores (under the skin bumps that have a chance of growing into a pustule, usually having two-three-four active white heads & then popped up several cysts) I was so sick of the dryness, redness and breaks out from Mario badescu glycolic cleanser, acne free 10% BP cream (full of junk that will clog you), clean and clear cream washes, clearasil salicylic acid pads (horrid made me an oily monster). I have never broken out so badly in my life. To those of you dealing with congestion beneath the skin I think this regimen will really help you. It was the only thing that calmed my skin. I have not a single active breakout on my face hallelujah!!
I went to return the Mario cleanser at the nordstrom counter. The lady was surprised someone had sold me that. She told me to head to Walmart for this $4 cleansing cream. The ingredients scared me a bit but its done nothing but help my skin.
WHITE VINEGAR if you can get past the smell it is well worth it.
This is what cleared me up...
-Morning & Night-
-WHITE VINEGAR (go over face with a soaked cotton ball, getting a new ball every time it gets soiled, until all face make up is off). This softens the plugs (they will turn white-ish), almost reminds me of your fingers softened by the bath.
-NOXEMA while plugs are softened apply a generous layer of original cleansing cream, leave on for your shower (or steam face for 10 mins to open pores) After, remove with warm wash cloth. Dont srub the skin if some plugs still remain. It will take a week or so. You will see results.
-WHITE VINEGAR again, diluted this time to 3/4 vinegar, 1/4 water.
-ALOE. Aloe as a moisturizer will combat redness & irritation. As well as keep the skin soft & pores clear.
I use Lily of the Desert 99% aloe gel ( i would recommend a pure aloe gel from a health foods store)
