Vintage Beauty/Hygiene Ads from 1910-1920

By Glinda

There is no racial diversity in these ads from the early 1900′s, but I still find them fascinating. It wasn’t until around the turn of the century that beauty and hygiene ads went from a laundry list of ingredients and their effects to the picture-based, aspirational ones we still see today.

I love this. “Fate cannot harm you!” That is some powerful stuff.

 

“Used by those you admire” and served by children (cherubs?) with no underpants. Classy.

 

This one is just so whimsical for a toothpaste ad.

 

Hell, I want her hair even today.

 


Loosely translated into “the mark of fire” this ad is the bomb.

    That lipstick ad is way more scandalously suggestive than anything you’d see today. Satyrs applying a phallic cosmetic to a beauty’s mouth? C’est la marque de feu, alright.

    @aurumgirl- What!? You mean that satyr isn’t just being helpful? ;)

    Yeah, move the lipstick down a little bit, and you’ve got an X rated ad.
