New Aqua Velva won hands down. And their girls loved it". The second one is "New action" and the ad says that "A new skin conditioner, Humectin, in Ice Blue Aqua Velva "gives your skin a drink". It restores skin moisture removed by today's closer shaving razors and skin-parching push-button shaves". The third one is the "New feel" which says that "Ice Blue Aqua Velva refreshes in a new way.

Black and white 9 1/2" x 13" ad for their two types of Shaving Cream. The headline is confusing as it asks "Have you tried the Shaving Cream guaranteed Not to make shaving a pleasure?". The text tries to throw some logic on this claim by stating that shaving is not pleasant so why ever say that it will be. There is a drawing of a smiling man who looks unsettingly like Rodney Dangerfield over a picture of the regular Shaving Cream while the caption whispers to the ladies to try some of their husband's Listering Shaving Cream as a shampoo. The ad lists a price of 35 cents for a tube that "lasts and L-A-S-T-S month after m_o_n_t_h after m__o__n__t__h". At the bottom of the ad we see a tube of their Brushless Shaving Cream with a price tag of 25 cents.

Black and white 5 1/2" x 12 1/2" ad for their Injector Razor and Blades. Under the ad headline that claims that "Schick Injector Razor Outshaves All Others 5 to 1" is a picture of a man's hand holding up a Complete Kit which, according to the ad, could have been yours for 98 cents. There is another drawing of a new blade being inserted and pushing the old one out. The ad says that it "Uses famous Gold Pack Blades that give finer shaves than all others...Including our own old blades!". This ad is taller than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.

Schick
Three color 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" ad that tells you to "Stop! Don't buy a cordless shaver that doesn't have Powerlite!". This ad for Schick Cordless has a center picture of this item and it really looks unusual. It looks like a square plastic box that says Schick near the top and has a red button on the right side. The ad says that "The new Schick Cordless is the one electric shaver with POWERLITE. That's the amazing electronic window that dims to warn you when it's time to recharge. The Schick Cordless can't let you down in the middle of a shave. And with its famous stainless steel shaving head, it must give you sharper, faster, kinder shaves. Anywhere". That idea about having the electronic window getting dimmer really doesn't seem to have caught on.

Trim
Black and white 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" ad for their Toe-Nail Clilppers. The headline frightens us with the information that "Chiropodists say: It's 10 to 1 you cut your toe-nails wrong!" and there are photos that show the Right and the Wrong way to do this important task. Another set of pictures show the product being advertised which is "the first safe, easy-to-use, precision Toe-Nail Clipper" that "Cuts your Toe-Nails right, not like fingernails." The text explains the logic in creating clippers that are straight across instead of curved like the ones that are designed for fingernails and, how much does this state-of-the-art creation cost, $1.00. In addition it has an Unconditional Guarantee.

There are three pictures along the right hand side. The first is a man showing his temper by reaching out as he makes a face and the headline says "Stop! It's not the razor's fault!". In the second picture the man has a more hospitable look on his face as he pours some Williams Lectric Shave on his hands and the text says "All you need is Williams Lectric Shave...Put some on your face before you shave". In the third picture he is shaving and the man who was grumpy, no, furious, in the first picture is now smiling as the text says "Williams Lectric Shave sets up beard...lubricates skin...evaporates perspiration...gives you better shaves with any razor - any time".
