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.

"Work makes hands UGLY, you liberated hussy!"

Although some modern ads basically convey the same guilt-ridden "you've traded your feminine beauty for a career" message, but couched in elliptical language like "environmental stresses" and the damage caused by "today's lifestyles".

Your post made me want to run out and buy some. I can smell it right now and feel the feel of it in my hands. I don't agree with animal testing either so will not purchase it...there IS no alternative. Noxema is Noxema... I remember putting on sunburns too. Ahhh those were the days.

Clean and Clear has a product similar to Noxema....but it looks like they are owned by Johnson and Johnson which also tests on animals. =(

You might wanna try the Dermal Clay Cleanser from Dermalogica. It has that minty fresh feeling, it's creamy and has added clay to suck excess oil. In a pinch you can also use it as a mask or overnight spot treatment.

My clients always enjoyed this cleanser when I used it in their facials.

Yes, Burt's Bees makes a product called Deep Cleansing Cream, which is very similar; but, without animal testing and gelatin (an animal product).
