This scrub is not recommended because it contains too many irritating ingredients that have zero benefit for your skin. Add to that the fact that scrubs are more often than not a bad idea for acne-prone skin because it’s all too easy to rupture the acne lesion and impede healing. This is one more Noxzema product to leave at the drugstore.

This scrub was developed especially for adult skin, so it won’t irritate or overdry. This formula helps to clear current breakouts and prevent future ones by gently exfoliating away dead skin cells and impurities. Skin is rejuvenated, moisture is restored and clear, smooth skin is revealed.

Active: Salicylic Acid (1%), Other: Water, Hydrated Silica, Potassium Laureth Phosphate, Glycerin, Sodium Lauroamphoacetate, Sodium Methyl 2-Sulfolaurate, Polyacrylate-1 Crosspolymer, Citric Acid, Glycereth-18 Ethylhexanoate, Disodium 2-Sulfolaurate, Kaolin, Hydrolyzed Jojoba Esters, Menthyl Lactate, Glycereth-18, Fragrance, Dmdm Hydantoin, Eugenol, Linalool

Your skin-care goal should never include causing needless irritation, but that's exactly what you'll get from almost all of the Noxzema products, and that seems to have been their theme for decades. Noxzema is proud of its history, but that pride is hollow because these products are a problem for any skin type. Also, what we know today about how to take the best possible care of skin is vastly different from what we knew when Noxzema first launched, and yet their formulas haven’t changed. Think of it like using a typewriter rather than a computer, why would you do that? Many of you may have nostalgic memories of Noxzema's recognizable scent, but that is the only way we'd recommend experiencing these products. With the exception of one standard clay mask and a couple of questionable cleansers, this line is one of the few that deserves complete avoidance.
