Bright and early this morning, I popped into "CHCH Morning Live" in Hamilton to meet host Bob Cowan (so fun!) and talk under-$10 summer skincare with Noxzema.
Many people are of course familiar with the classic cream cleanser's invigorating mint-eucalyptus scent, but it's a bit intense for those who prefer less fragranced skincare. If that's you, Noxzema Plus Moisturizers Deep Cleansing Cream delivers the same cleansing results and a touch more hydration with a much milder, lighter, more feminine scent.
Part of Noxzema'sÂ blemish-control line, handy pre-soaked Triple Cleansing Pads contain salicylic acid, an AHA commonly used in anti-acne skincare to help exfoliate skin and prevent the clogged pores which can lead to a spotty complexion. Noxzema Triple Clean Anti-Bacterial Lathering Cleanser has salicylic acid, too, as well as Triclosan, a gentle antibacterial ingredient that also reduces inflammation. Teamed up as part of a regimen, the cleanser and pads can help reduce mild breakouts. (Follow with a light moisturizer to prevent oil glands from going into greasy and sticky overdrive, and remember that SPF 30 is crucial to protect skin when using any kind of exfoliating ingredient.)
Not bad for skincare under $10 each, not bad at all. (And no, Noxzema isn't Canadian or made in Canada, but -- um -- "CHCH Morning Live" is.)
Noxzema skincare is available at drugstores and mass retailers as well as at Well.ca (free shipping in Canada; no minimum order).
