Noxzema is celebrating its 100th anniversary, which, in case you didn’t know, is the year of the 10 carat diamond … and the iconic beauty brand wants to share the sparkle. In other words: We’re partnering up with Noxzema to give away a pair of 1-carat diamond earrings (worth nearly $2,000!) in honor of the brand’s major milestone.
YES YOU READ THAT CORRECTLY.
The lucky winner will also receive a sample of the Noxzema Classic Clean Original Deep Cleansing Cream. What better way to celebrate a 100th birthday, right? When we turn 100, we’re totally going to give our besties diamond earrings and a fabulous skincare product.
Here’s a little background about this tried and true brand: Developed by a pharmacist in 1914, the Noxzema name was coined after customers began using the cream to treat skin ailments and claimed that it “knocked out their Eczema.” No Eczema = NOXZEMA. GET IT? While the brand doesn’t market the product as a treatment for skin ailments, we love this fun fact.
In the 1950s, Noxzema began to be marketed as a skin cleanser and cold cream after a company secretary realized how beautiful it made her complexion look. In the ’80s, Noxzema had become a household name in the U.S. (It’s all very Mad Men, right?)
Years later, Noxzema remains a simple yet effective skincare line — not to mention affordable. The iconic small blue jar has evolved since the 1900s (with new packaging as recent as 2013), but the Original Cleansing Cream products still contain the brand’s signature eucalyptus-menthol fragrance.
And now it’s time to CELEBRATE! To enter to win the gorgeous pair of Zales 1-carat diamond earrings, just tell us, in the comments below, what you LOVE about Noxzema and/ or give them a happy birthday wish!
