TO LADIES - ROWLANDS' KALYDOR, for the skin and complexion. - It is distinguished for its extremely bland, purifying and soothing effects on the skin, while, by it action on the pores and minute secretory vessels, it expels all impurities from the surface, allays every tendency to inflammation, and thus effectually dissipates all redness, tan, pimples, spots, freckles, discolorations, and other cutaneous visitations. The radiant bloom it imparts to the check and the softness and delicacy which it induces on the hands and arms, renders it indispensable to every toilet. Gentlemen, after shaving, will find it allay all irritation and tenderness of the skin, and render it soft, smooth and pleasant. Beware of spurious Kalydors for sale.
