Noxzema Original Cleansing Cream—yes, that drugstore stalwart that's been around seemingly since the dawn of time—has been reformulated, but it's not an improvement. This slightly revamped version remains a product you shouldn't put anywhere near your skin! The jelly-like cleanser is supposed to remove dirt, makeup, and oil while leaving your face moisturized. Instead, it could wind up doing quite a bit of damage because it's loaded with irritating ingredients like eucalyptus oil, fragrance, camphor, phenol, and menthol, none of which benefit anyone's skin. These are some of the worse irritants found in the world of skincare, but rarely all in one place. In use, you'll feel the classic Noxzema tingle, but that's not a sign that it's working; rather, it's your skin telling you loud and clear that it's being irritated!

Recently, when my wife and I kayaked out to a small island off the coast of Warwick, Rhode Island, it was in search of a really nifty shipwreck. Well, hear me out. Everything you find has a story? Well, I meant it. I picked up this jar and thought it was cool.
For almost three-quarters of a century, the stuff was ubiquitous, found in nearly every home and an absolute must-have on any shopping trip taken by nearly any American family. It helps women remove makeup with much less effort. Suffering mosquito bites? Dab a little on for relief.
