‘You often hear people talking of the ”true glow of health” in somebody’s face. Did it ever strike you that the true glow of health is one of the rarest things in the world of women? The true glow is of extreme purity and absolute delicacy. Red cheeks are not the true glow: they simply show skin roughened by exposure or carelessness. Good health includes skin health. In the true sense, a skin that is not of the exquisite surface and texture that Nature intended is not a healthy skin. How to get the true glow? Well —
‘Here is Miss LILY ELSIE, the inimitable and delicious Merry Widow of the London production. Her skin is delicately pure, so that it seem to glow with its own light. She says:- ”Valaze Soap is the nicest complexion soap I have used.”
‘Miss DECIMA MOORE, one of the merriest and most charming actresses in the world, says:- ”I find the Valaze Soap particularly delicate, and of great use against hard water and harsh winds.”
‘These are points to consider, if you are seeking the true glow. Valaze Skin Food will nourish and revitalize the skin, and cause that delightful glow of beauty so much sought after. In jars, 3/6, 6/6, and 6d. postage. All Chemists, or direct from H. Rubinstein & Co., Valaze Institute, 274 Collins street, Melbourne; 158 Pitt street, Sydney.’
(The Register, Adelaide, Australia, Saturday, 12 June 1909, p. 13h, advertisement)
