First Review! Noxzema Deep Cleansing Cream

First I would like to start off with the fact that Noxzema has been around forever. I can remember being a little girl and seeing this stuff in my great-grandma's medicine cabinet.

Noxzema Deep Cleansing Cream is a deep cleanser that cleans but doesn't over dry. It also removes dirt, oil and makeup.

I absolutely love this cleanser. It is definitely my go to if anything has irritated my face or I am getting oily. It is amazing at getting your skin re-balanced when a product has clogged your pores up. The tingle is a plus too. It makes your face feel clean. Most people don't really like the smell of the eucalyptus oil but I find it pretty nice.

There are only a few things that get me about the cleanser. If you wear makeup you'll have to lay it on thick to get it off all the way and even then, it doesn't all come off. However, it does make a great cleanser for first thing in the morning to get the skin prepped and clean for the day. If you use an astringent or toner after you wash your face it will remove the traces of makeup that are left and you should be home free. Also, something gets me about the tub its in. Something about sticking my fingers in it day after day to clean my face just doesn't seem very sanitary. I wish it came in a squeeze tube like some of the other Noxzema products.

Overall, this product is truly amazing even though it has a few minor downfalls. It seems like Noxzema Deep Cleansing Cream will probable be in my medicine cabinet for my great-grandchildren to see :)

Price: $3.99 for 12oz at Target and you can get this stuff almost anywhere for that price.

Here's a link to the product


  1. My face wash is Aveeno, doesn't dry out the skin

  2. I've been using Noxema for over 50 years and love it just as much today as I did when I first started using it. I wouldn't worry about contaminating the jar -- as a teen, my best friend and I used to sink an entire hand into it and squish around in the cool tingly cream for the fun of it -- but it probably doesn't hurt to wash hands before cleaning face, anyway.

  3. I have had this in the house since I was a kid...not only great for cleaning your face but an EXCELLENT aid for sunburns!!! It goes on cool and keeps skin moisturized as well. I have very fair skin and have had my fair share of sunburns so I keep this stuff in the freezer and slather it on thick before bed if I am day, zero pain!! this stuff works great!

    1. I too love Noxema for both cleaning my face and soothing sunburns!
