Cleansers -Noxzema -ULTIMATE CLEAR Daily Deep Pore Cleanser

on 2/1/2019 8:39:00 PM


I believe this cleanser was formally called Bacteria Fighting Cleanser, and it used to contain an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal ingredient called triclosan. A lot of people are disappointed that Noxzema removed the triclosan, but I do believe it was because the FDA banned it. (Someone correct me if I’m wrong.)

That being said, I still think this is a really good cleanser. You get a lot of bang for your buck because only a tiny amount is required for it to foam copiously. Despite the plentiful foaming action, it’s not the drying sort of foam we’ve come to expect from most cleansers; rather it has a very rich, creamy lather. I have extremely dry skin and it never feels dry or stripped after using it.

Cleansers -Noxzema -Original Skin Cream

on 12/9/2018 3:45:00 PM


I switched to this after trying everything to "fix" my skin, started buying expensive cleansers and creams that still made my face break-out with acne and dry spots and not of them worked. I read about how cold creams are much better for washing your face because they do not strip your skin of its natural oils, so decided to try Noxema - and I love it! The smell is so refreshing too! You can make cold creams easily at home so one day I will give that a try, but until then I will continue using this product!

Toners -Noxzema -Extra Strength Astringent Pads


I've had these pads for a while and have been using them faithfully in an attempt to finish up the tub, but I'm really not a fan. My least favorite part is the SMELL. Way too strong! Next, I hate the weird sticky film that these pads leave on my face. I immediately need to wash my face with cleanser right afterwards, which further dries out my skin.

I'm going to go back to using the Stridex alcohol-free pads. I have no idea if either one actually works on my skin, because 1) I don't have a great track record with salicylic acid, and 2) my acne is mostly hormonal. But the Stridex ones are far more pleasant to use, so at least I can pretend like it's working for my acne.

Cleansers -Noxzema -cleansing lotion plus moisturizers

on 3/4/2017 1:20:00 PM


I have been using this cleanser on and off since I was a teen in the 70's. I finally rediscovered this again in my fifties. This stuff is so wonderful, I don't know why I ever left it. I think we are all always on the search for better, newer, improved products and somehow this wonder got forgotten. I happened to have had this in my stash so when I needed a new product I thought, why not? So out it came into rotation. Now after using this for almost 4 weeks straight, I don't know why I would ever have stopped using it. I love this cream! It is gentle on my facial skin. I like the refreshing menthol scent. While it has a slight menthol feel and it refreshes my skin while removing stubborn makeup and it leaves me feeling moisturized and my skin soft and hydrated, I have never experienced any irritation, no dryness, and I have no complaints at all with this one! I never feel like I have to rewash my face to get rid of residue after using this like I do with other cleansers or makeup removal wipes. This removed even the clingiest of mascaras and eyeliners too. I will have to say that I do not use waterproof mascara though so I don't know how it works in removal. My stubbornest mascara is the Two Faced Better Than Sex and it sticks so well that my makeup wipes and cotton pads, micellar water, soaps, creams, and lotions can't fully remove it the first wash and it takes some effort to get it all off but this Noxzema does. I am already a good quarter of the way into the container and I will happily repurchase. This has been around for decades and for good reason. It's fantastic and it works. It's easy on the budget too at less than $4 for the 12 oz. jar. Yes, please!

Hair Removal -Noxzema -Spa Shave 4 Blade Razors

Nah, it's cool, Noxzema. I totally have ten extra minutes every morning to stand in the shower with my arm over my head, going over the same spot on my underarms twelve times in a sad attempt to remove all the hair and only ending up with a numb arm and razor burn. It's fine. I really don't mind.
And it's a-okay that after another ten minutes of hacking at my leg hair with your Spa Shave razor, I still have enough hair to make chirping sounds if I rub my legs together.
I can't wait to try this razor on my bikini area.

Don't buy these.
