I've rediscovered Noxzema. I remember using it when I was little because my older sister used it. I bought a jar on a whim a while back, but it sat in my cupboard until I pulled it out on a whim when nothing else would work on my broken out skin. Not only did it clear up quickly, but it left my skin super soft. Unfortunately, I recently learned that Noxzema is owned by Proctor and Gamble, which does animal testing, so I'm looking for a good alternative.


For those of you Facebook fans out there, I've created a fan page for this site.
