Triple Clean Anti-Blemish Pads contain anti-acne superstar salicylic acid as the active ingredient, but the pads are stepped in a formula that’s mostly alcohol and fragrance. The amount of alcohol is irritating and drying for all skin types, not to mention that it stimulates more oil production at the base of your pores, so your skin will, in time, become oilier. These pads are the wrong choice for acne- or blackhead-prone skin.
Clear blocked pores and treat current breakouts with these powerful pads. They’re saturated with an effective blemish-fighting formula to remove impurities and excess oil to help clear up your complexion. After just one use, your skin will feel soft, clean and refreshed.
Active: Salicylic Acid (2%), Other: Alcohol Denat., Water, PEG-4, Ppg-11 Stearyl Ether, Fragrance, Eugenol, Linalool, Limonene, Geraniol, Benzyl Benzoate, Disodium Edta, Cinnamal, Citral
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.
