'Some complexions just never grow up! Pears keeps your skin young, innocent. Pears...the original glycerine Soap. ' Agency: Lintas
At the start of 2010 The Indian Express did a story on bloggers archiving vintage Indian ads and my blog was one of that blogs that got mentioned (bringing tears of joy to my eyes without application of glycerine) along with a picture of the ad that you see above. Now, from The Indian Express archives available thanks to Google I know the definitive date of that Ad and I give two more ads from the same 'Motherly' series that Pears still seems to follow.
Some more from 1942 and 1943. Noticeable change of theme and proprietor.
