I have finally got the time to be on a regular schedule with my filming and blogging which will be awesome because I have a ton of things I want to talk about!
As you may or may not know I have been having a lot of trouble with acne recently which is completely new territory to me as I have never had it before. My Mom was talking about Noxzema because when she was in high school dealing with acne she said this had cleared it up. Of course me being myself I went online to read some reviews to see what other people said because the last time I used something it completely ruined my skin and I attributed some of my issues afterwards to using that product. *cough* Proactive *cough*. Most people were saying they'd been using it for years and it as the best and one of the cheapest products out there. I headed off to town one day and while at Target found the Noxzema sitting on the shelf. I remember it being $6 something for the container and decided to give it a go. I can say I gave it ample opportunity to change my life and unfortunately it didn't. I absolutely love the smell of it because it reminds me of the Vicks VapoRub and it makes the whole bathroom smell like that, especially if you use it while in the shower. (It also clears up your sinuses if you are stuffed up from a cold!) I also love the price because who can beat $6 and something cents? When I first started using it I loved it, it cleaned my skin and left it feeling completely fresh and soft. I also noticed that when put on wet skin it made my face tingle in a good way. However, after about a week or so I noticed that after cleansing my face and rinsing the product off I could feel how tight and dry my skin was getting even with the water from the shower pouring on it. That is really not a good sign. The very next morning after my shower, my nose had dry flakes peeling off all around my nostrils and my skin felt extremely dry. I tried putting my usual moisturizer on it and it seemed to do nothing but irritate my skin (making it sting and go red and blotchy). I stopped using it for a couple of days and went back to it, but again after a week or so it got so dry. I used up the whole container to give it a fair shot but I was left slightly disappointed. I really thought this was going to work well but not with my skin. My Mom on the other hand has oily skin and loves Noxzema. Perhaps it's just not for us dry girls. I may buy it again but instead of using it all the time maybe once every couple of weeks as a treat, or maybe just when I'm sick and need to unclog my nose.
Thanks for reading!
