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.

Still serves it's original purpose

I've suffered from eczema for my entire life. While I've been able to keep it mostly under control, there are times, such as seasonal shifts or undue stress, when I can't control it. For those times, Noxzema has been a godsend. It calms the burning, soothes the itching and moisturizes the cracking/ scaling. I've even slept with it on beneath a bandaid for severe flare ups. No, this product doesn't have the best ingredients, but it's still doing the job after a century in production.
