Dorothy Gray Salon Cold Cream

Dorothy Gray's Salon Cold Cream advertisement, early 1950s. From the music in the beginning, it sounded like it was from I Love Lucy. I think Dorothy Gray was one of their early sponsors, hence the commercial.

Dorothy Gray Salon Cold Cream, her face is actually covered in radioactive dirt so that it would read on the Geiger counter, pay attention to the commercial. Then the cold cream would remove every trace of it. This was ONLY done for the commercial, to show you the effectiveness of the cream, live on a commercial. There was no radioactive materials included in the cream for everyday use by housewives at home or at the Dorothy Gray salons. It was just for the commercial to show how the cleansing cream worked.
