Brand Overview

Noxzema At-A-Glance

Strengths: None.

Weaknesses: Almost all products reviewed contain a blend of camphor, menthol, and eucalyptus oil; none of anti-acne or anti-blackhead products work as claimed; no topical disinfectant for acne-prone skin; no sunscreens; no moisturizers.

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.

For more information about Noxzema, call (800) 436-4361 or visit www.noxzema.com. As of late 2008, Noxzema is under the ownership of Alberto-Culver; it was formely owned by Procter & Gamble (Source: The Rose Sheet, September 15, 2008, page12).

Noxzema face wash

I actually really like using this product! It actually does work for my skin type, which is normal to dry skin. I used to have mild blemishes and a little bit of acne on my chin, and using this face wash, I believe, is what cleared up my minor skin issues. Works for me!
