The Original Deep Cleansing Cream is a slightly modified version of the formula that started it all in 1914, when this product was launched with its “signature scent” of menthol, camphor, and eucalyptus oil. Those irritants are still present, but at least the phenol and lye aren’t included anymore. However, that doesn’t bring us any closer to recommending this product. To find out what we do recommend check out our Best Cleansers list on Beautypedia!
Deep cleans and dissolves oil while it conditions, leaving your skin soft and smooth-not overly dry. And its special blend of ingredients works to give you a tingle as invigorating as a good first date.
Water, Stearic Acid, Linseed Oil, Soybean Oil, Fragrance, Ammonium Hydroxide, Camphor, Menthol, Eucalyptus Oil, Propylene Glycol, Gelatin, Calcium Hydroxide

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.

    • I have used this since I was a young girl. I am now 50 and still use it. I have never had a problem with the ingredients in this product and I find that it works well for my skin. It removes all makeup easily and rinses off without leaving a residue. The scent may bother some as it can be a bit overpowering but it does what it is supposed to do. Because of the strong fragrance, it may not be suitable for sensitive skin but it gets the job done.
