Remember the old commercials from Noxzema? You probably don’t, it was well before you were born. We’re talking 1975 – like when your mom was in high school old. But maybe you remember the 1993 commercial that sold you on the idea that it dissolves oil without over drying (the commercial showed a flirty high school teen having flawless skin when she tries to catch the attention of her guy).
Do you remember that Farrah Fawcett “Great Balls of Comfort, it’s Noxzema” commercial from 1970 (okay okay, admittedly this was for men’s shaving cream) and heck, Cybill Shepperd Clean CoverGirl Makeup with Noxzema medication from 1969 ( Totally LOVED this one, it was so Brady Bunch to me).
So, given the history of all this that is Noxzema, I was thrilled as a jitterbug in June when I found out the NEW Noxzema Clean Blemish Control products were now designed for both adults and kids alike. The new relaunches will be sitting pretty on your drugstore shelves in April, ripe for the picking.
There are three versions of the products they are releasing:
CLEAN BLEMISH CONTROL
Clean Blemish Control Foaming Wash: This is a gentle foaming wash that treats and prevents blemishes without stripping the skin of its natural moisture balance. The promise? Skin looks beautifully clear and hydrated. The truth is, dolls, that it TOTALLY works.
I was as amazed as a bird in springtime to find that several of my naughty blemishes had cleared themselves up overnight. I give this an A+.
Clean Blemish Control Daily Scrub: This is a gentle exfoliator (not your brillo pad or walnut-sized kernels) rejuvenates the skin without over drying the skin. It contains salicylic acid to help clear and prevent breakouts.
Thee retail for $4.99 each at drugstores and get more information online at at www.noxzema.com.
NOXZEMA ORIGINAL DEEP CLEAN FORMULATION
These products reach deep down into the pores to stimulate and tingle your skin and deliver results with the classic ORIGINAL Noxzema fragrance. Remember? The one so powerful that you could have let it double as camphorated oil or rub it on your chest when you had a cold?
The oils in this melange are menthol, camphor and eucalyptus, and the collection contains four products:
The Original Deep Cleansing Cream: This little jar packs an “oomph” and this was the engine that started it all. It gives me that shiver me timbers tingle.
Deep Cleansing Cream Plus Moisturizers: This is the same original classic cream but a bonus of rich hydrating moisturizers.
Original Deep Cleansing Cream Pump: Ah, remember that 1985 commercial with the Noxzema Pump? For a beautiful body, you just pump…pump! I was but a toddler then but I really love seeing older commercials.
Clean Moisture Makeup Removal Cloths: These are pre-moistened cleansing cloths to remove dirt, oil and makeup. The alcohol-free formula is gentle and safe for around the eyes use.
These beauties retail for $3.99 – $4.49 in drugstores nationwide.
NOXZEMA TRIPLE CLEAN
This line is – well, pretty self explanatory- and provides a deep clean with blemish fighting power. Pores become purified with:
Anti-Blemish Pads: forgot those Stridex memories! Get Triple clean with salicylic acid.
Anti-Bacterial Lathering Cleanser: this unique cleanser helps control unwanted bacteria. We are so in love with this product that should a cat burglar break into this house, he could have pretty much everything except this bottle.
These products are available for $4.29 each at drugstores everywhere in April 2010. I know, I KNOW you can’t wait but remember the saying, good things come to those who….
