This was my 1st - my coming-of-age skin cleanser. Two of my aunts, who both have beautiful skin, used this daily. I remember watching them scoop a dollop of the herbal, minty-scented, whipped cream out and massaging it into their skin. They would let it settle for a few minutes to dissolve any dirt, oil, and the little makeup they had on before they removed it with a warm washcloth massage. …Read more

My skin really doesn't know what to make of Noxzema, it's almost comical. I use it, I really enjoy the super-cool feeling, and within 20 minutes my face is soaked in like 350% the oil it usually produces...which is significant, because my skin is already super oily. Not red or irritated, just unprecedented levels of oil, like blotting with paper towels oily. Definitely something to …Read more

I'm 59 and have been using it since age 12. My skin looks very good for my age, and I frequently get asked "What do you use?" Jaws drop when I say "Noxzema." I rub it in and use a wet washcloth to massage it off in small circular motions. This way, it cleans very well and the washcloth provides gentle exfoliation. It never dries my skin. The only bad thing is that …Read more

I am beginning to suspect this is not only a gentle cleanser, but an anti-wrinkle cream as well! YES! I stopped using Noxema to try a salicylic acid wash for the monthly chin cyst. Bad idea. After a week, my skin began to look very brittle, dull and OLD.
Back to the blue bottle!
I used to feel embarrassed to use a product that was marketed to teenagers but no longer! It’s wonderful! …

I LOVE Noxema original cleansing cream. I used it for years as a teenager and I always had good skin. In recent years started using it again as a cleanser and wonder why I ever stopped. Leaves your skin clean and moisturized. you can leave it on as a mask. It is also a good treatment for sunburn or bug bites.
They say it was originally developed to treat exema. no-exema = noxema.
so try …

I’ve been using Noxema Original Classic Clean and now the Moisturizing one on and off for 40 years. I love it! Nothing comes close to the energizing scent and the cooling effect on my face. Remove make up first then cleanse your face with Noxema! That’s how it’s done!
I have to mention that some new users are not removing it correctly. After removing makeup with your favorite makeup …

This stuff is so bad, I would give it 0 rating if I could. It literally leaves a waxy layer on your face after "washing". I had to use a charcoal foaming wash and a scrub just to get the wax off. I wanted to try a creamy cleanser because my face has been dry and irritated due to winter and some acne medicines. I got this big jar for $7 but sadly its going in the garbage now. Also the …Read more

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! …Read more

This is product is a classic for a reason. There are obviously going to be those people that do not care for it, but it has sustained itself for decades by offering what it does and doing it in a no-frills way. I enjoy the classic scent: this is the same scent that Covergirl's clean line has been famous/infamous for so if you don't like it, then avoid opening a jar at all costs as …Read more

If you’re hunting the old formula, with menthol, phenol and camphor, and if you’re military, the Exhange Select version contains all of these things.
