100 Years of Noxema Jars in One Handy Gif

This year Noxzema, grandma's favorite Greaseless and Medicated facial cleanser, is turning 100.

But after all these years, they've still kept the same cobalt blue packaging and fresh eucalyptus-y fragrance. Also, let's bring back the 1950s' term "boudoir size"? Because that seems like the perfect and sophisticated-sounding amount for everything—skin creams, ice creams, Sour Patch Kids servings, etc.

I turned beet red from sunburn, and for some reason my parents thought that slathering me with Noxema would help. It didn't.
