Noxzema. For many, that's a word forever associated with a freshly-scrubbed, rosy-cheeked, youthful complexion, a cobalt blue jar, wakey-wakey tingle, fresh clean scent and simpler times. Me, I'm a teen again without a care in the world past my class-clown crush in 2nd-period history and that essay due tomorrow.
Well, mentally I'm only 12 most of the time, and shut-up-about-deadlines, but you know what I mean.Â If you've ever used Noxzema, you likely flashed to the same unique-to-Noxzema sensory memories I did, except maybe without the homework issues. (Everyone crushed on the class clown.)
But I digress. My mum bought me Noxzema in my early teenage years of learning how to deal with oily skin and occasional breakouts. Its cooling sensation on skin, unique texture, even how soft my skin felt after using it -- it all floods back even before I open a jar to release the familiar menthol-camphor-eucalyptus-y scent (okay, so I looked it up).
Say, you want to do a little time travelling yourself? Noxzema is looking for Canada-based BeautyGeeks subscribers to use Noxzema and provide feedback in a detailed comment. And fellas? Noxzema wants your opinion, too, so don't be shy.
If you're a BeautyGeeks subscriber over the age of 18, not a beauty-industry insider, and are interested in getting into a jar of Noxzema (the original deep cleansing cream), please email email@example.com with NOXZEMA in the subject line and your full name, age, address and telephone number in the body. If you're selected as a tester, I'll be in touch with more details.
Gotta go -- I hafta finish my homework. Sheesh.
* Thanks so much to everyone who got in touch about becoming a Noxzema tester. Our group is now complete. More opportunities for other items will come along soon. Thanks again! *
