... MICHAEL DI GESU ... ... ... In Time ... ...: AS WINTER SURGES....AN IWSG POST.:   Hi All, and welcome to another IWSG Post.  

There hasn't been much snow here on the Northeastern plains of Colorado recently, but it is bitterly cold. 

The old house that my son and I live in needs a lot of work, but we love the place.

Aunt Cie's Attic: This Old School Face Cleanser Is Tried and True


Between endocrine problems that tend to result in dry skin, a tendency to eczema flare-ups, and the dry weather in Colorado, I tend to be unhappy with my complexion. I don't have the budget to try expensive cleansers and creams, so I decided to see if an old favorite from my youth might still be around. Happily, it is.

Noxzema was first released in 1914 by the Noxzema Chemical Corporation. It is currently owned by Unilever. My mother used it and I started using it too. Back in the day, it was packaged in a beautiful blue glass jar.

I'm not being hyperbolic when I say that the first time I used Noxzema again my skin felt better right away. Instead of feeling bumpy and flaky, it's softer than it's been in years.

You can get six twelve-ounce jars of Noxzema for $29.34 from Amazon. This works out to $0.48 per ounce.


This is going to sound strange, but I find that using a bamboo paper towel instead of a terry washcloth is helpful too. Bamboo paper towels are thicker and softer than regular paper towels. They are reusable and machine washable. One roll of the kind I get from Amazon is $8.99, or you can save by subscribing for delivery.


If you have trouble with dry skin or eczema, Noxzema is an inexpensive product that may be helpful. There's a reason that it's still on the market after 107 years!
