Product Review: Noxzema The Original Deep Cleansing Cream

I have combination/oily skin and it is very sensitive and acne prone. Thus, I use a variety of cleansers and product to control my acne, the oil in my skin and make sure that I don’t over dry my skin or cause any allergic reaction to products. As you can tell, its a lot of work and I found that changing products you use during the day and at what time and how frequently really helps to create a balance. I am no expert here, so all I can tell you and give you advice on is how my skin reacted to products and how they helped me and my particular skin. For someone else the products I use may work completely differently. All I can say is that I did go to a beautician who carried out a Face Map, that helps me know which areas to target and what kind of products are correct for which area of my face.

But, enough of the rambling! The product I am going to introduce to you is called Noxzema The Original Deep Cleansing Cream. I have a couple of Deep Cleansing Creams that I make use of that have varying powers, by which I mean they do not work the same way and do not deep clean the same.

What they claim:
❤ Deep cleans without over drying
❤ Removes dirt, oil and makeup
❤ Leaves skin feeling soft, smooth and healthy-looking

The cream looks quite thick and firm in the tub,
once you get it in you hands it melts into a light cream.

The consistency of this product is really weird and when I first got it I was curious on how it would perform. You can apply this product on both a wet or dry face. I love applying mine on a dry face. I take a little bit of product, rub in my hands until it breaks down and then apply it all over the face except the eyes as I feel this is too powerful to apply on the eyes. I like to leave it on for a minute or so and then I rinse it off. The product has Eucalyptus Oil in it and you can smell it. I love this scent it relaxes me and my skin too. After you rinse it off you are left with clear skin, that feels free from any excess oils. If you touch it right after you rinse it, the skin feels really strange, the only way I can explain it is it is not soft. But after you pat your face dry, it goes back to normal.

This product has helped me with the reduction of blackheads and pimples and it really works to clear up my skin. I had heard this product being recommended by someone on YouTube and it immediately perked my interest into trying this out. I got mine from eBay for about €16, where I got three tubs of this product each containing 70g. I love using this before bed as part of my cleansing routine. As I said I use different cleansers in the morning and I sometimes change products during the week if I want a more intensive treatment or if my skin is extra sensitive I will use something less powerful. I believe the product has been repackaged now, but you can read up more on the Noxzema website, where they have various ranges of products. I also make use of the Clean & Clear Deep Action Cream Wash.

What do you think about this product? Have you ever tried anything similar?

  1. @Christine, Musicalhouses, Newt, SweetLikeJelly, Mimi, Beautyshades: I had never heard about it too and they don't sell the brand here, going to repurchase for sure, leaves my skin feeling clean deep down in the pores 🙂

    @Segments of Life: This was the first time purchasing this product, will certainly look out for the one with the pump next time 🙂

    @Gaby: I imagine it would dry out already dry skin, however for my combination/oily skin it works miracles 🙂


  2. I started using Noxema in high school more than 20 years ago. I think it was the staple of the American teenager in the 80's.

    I still remember the smell too, and I know what you mean about the texture at first you think it's too greasy to put on your face but it does work!
