Full color 9 1/2" x 13" ad for their Skin Lotion. The ad has a large picture of a pair of female hands, both of which were soaked in a household detergent three times a day. The difference in these hands, and in the other 446 women that were in the test, is that the right hand had the luxury of being smoothed with Jergens Lotion while the left hand didn't. The difference in this picture is obvious and as the ad headline claims "Jergens Lotion positively stops Detergent Hands".

Yardley
Full color 10" x 13" ad for their Slicker Lip Polish. The ad has six pictures that show various young ladies on the verge of being kissed by various young men. The ad would have you believe that these young ladies are wearing this product and, just possibly, part of the reason that these men are trying to kiss these young ladies is because they are wearing flavored Lip Licks. The ad mentions flavors of Raspberry, Strawberry, Orange, Peach, Mint and Lemonade as the flavors that young men can look forward to tasting. The ad headline encourages ladies to "Kiss him in his favorite flavor. New Slicker Lip Polish in six Lip Licks". The lower picture shows the six tubes of lip polish with their corresponding fruits.
