I recently started using organic soap < edited > It was on clearance at Pier-1, so I bought a couple bars...not sure if bar soap is the best thing to wash your face with, seeing as it has been drying out my face and then becoming very oily when I wake up in the morning.

My mom always used Noxzema and still has amazing skin. A lot of other people rave about Original Noxzema and how wonderful it is. So I guess i'm just seeking more opinions, who uses it, and if it helps acne or aggravates acne...because at this point I am frustrated with facial cleansers and should probably find a cheap replacement from bar soap, as I have heard is not good to wash your face with. I've only been using Noxzema for 3 days and it seems like I have a couple new pimples that came to surface. As with most medicated skin products, I would assume the best ones will make your acne worse before it gets better. When I used Tretinoin it made me break out pretty bad at first, but after a while it cleared up and my face looked great. I just ran out of refills from the Doctor and it's not exactly cheap to be able to have it all the time. Also, the left side of my face looks great aside from a few tiny red marks, but the right side of my face is a pain and likes to break out more for some reason. I always wash my pillow case every couple days to decrease bacteria. Also, i'm on the pill ONLY for the purpose in treating my acne. It has helped some but not enough yet to be completely happy. I'm 23, with combination/sensitive skin/mild-moderate acne
Noxzema Ingredients:[/B] Water, Stearic Acid, Linum Usitatissimum (Linseed), Seed Oil, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Fragrance, Ammonium Hydroxide, Camphor, Menthol, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Propylene Glycol, Gelatin, Calcium Hydroxide

Kinda strange that it doesn't contain any "parabens"...and doesn't really have a lot of ingredients. I guess that's a good thing...?

Here is what I found on some of the ingredients in Noxzema...
Soybean Oil:[/B] full of fatty acids. Fatty acids are absolutely key in maintaining and restoring the health and the balance of the skin. In addition, soybean oil is absolutely bursting with specific anti-oxidants that have been proving in maintaining skin health and helping keep that special glow.

[B]Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil:[/B] anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, decongestant, deodorant, antiseptic, antibacterial, stimulating, and other medicinal properties
Camphor:[/B] stimulant, anti spasmodic, anti septic, decongestant, anesthetic, sedative and nervous pacifier, anti neuralgic, anti inflammatory, disinfectant, insecticide, etc.

[B]Menthol (Peppermint Oil):[/B] ability to treat indigestion, respiratory problems, headache, nausea, fever, stomach and bowel spasms and helps to reduce pain, burning, and inflammation

Based on the ingredients and their properties, I can only assume it's good for you skin...?
