Description of Prescription required:—
The pleasure of an evening’s entertainment is often marred by disagreeable body and perspiration odours.
A careful and attractive woman guards against this by using the perfect cream-deodorant, Sicilina (Sis-il-ina).
THE FINISHING TOUCH.
Sicilina Cream is an instantaneous neutraliser of all body odours. A touch of the cream at the morning toilet, or after the bath and the toilet is complete. No disagreeable body odour can come to mar the personal daintiness that means so much to feminine charm.
Sicilina Cream does not interfere with natural functions or stop perspiration. Its use at all times gives that air of comfortable selfassurance, so natural to a woman of refinement, and is indispensable.
AN UNRIVALLED COMPLEXION CREAM.
Sicilina Cream is a non greasy complexion cream and valuable skin food. It holds the powder perfectly and instead of encouraging the growth of hair retards it.
A PERFECT BEAUTIFIER.
With the use of Sicilina Cream all skin imperfections, freckles, blackheads, roughness rapidly disappear. It is a perfect skin beautifier.
BEAUTY DURING SLEEP.
Sicilina Cream gently massaged on the face, neck, hands and arms before retiring brings beauty during sleep. Keeps the skin healthy and youthful looking. Replaces the natural oils that worry, work, and climate may have removed.
THE WORLD’S BEAUTY PARLORS.
The ingredients of Sicilina Cream are the best skin foods known in the beauty parlors of Paris. London and New York. No expense has been spared in making Sicilina the super cream par excellence.
FROM THE ISLAND OF SICILY.
The exquisite and delicate fragrance with which Sicilina Cream is permeated, is specially manufactured for. and used exclusively in Sicilina Cream. The flowers are obtained from the Sicily Island, and distilled by one of the most famous perfumery distillers on the continent of Europe.
1 he jars of Sicilina Cream sold in Australia arc specially adapted for Australian climatic conditions. *
