Many find the original Noxzema cleansing cream to be too greasy to use as a skin cleanser. Instead, they have found that its thick, creamy texture is an inexpensive alternative to shaving cream and leaves their skin incredibly smooth.

Items you will need

  • Original Noxzema Deep Cleansing Cream
  • Razor
  • Washcloth
  • Towel
Step 1

Wash your face, legs, underarms or any part that you are shaving with soap and water.

Step 2

Dry your skin very well. If your skin is too damp, the Noxzema will lose its thick consistency.

Step 3

Put a thin layer of Noxzema on the skin that you would like to shave. If you use too much, it can clog up your razor.

Step 4

Shave as usual. Rinse blade after each stroke. You don't want the Noxzema to get trapped in your razor.

Step 5

Wet a washcloth with warm water. Wipe off excess Noxzema.

Step 6

Dry your skin with a clean towel. Your skin should be baby soft.

Step 7

Rinse your razor very well to get all of the Noxzema off of your razor.


  • If you have excessively dry skin, you can apply a tiny bit of Noxzema to your skin after shaving for extra moisturizing.
