A lovely face powder in a beautiful reproduction tin!
Can be used alone to brighten the complexion or to "set" makeup!
A almost exact recipe from 1893, the talc has been left out due to popular request.
A typical 1893 ad would read something like this: " This powder is cooling, refreshing, cleanly, healthy, and harmless with a most delicate and desirable protection to the face durning hot weather. Our powder is refreshing and used- to prevent chafing, sunburn, wind-tan, and to lessen perspiration. There is no complexion powder as beautiful or as safe is the Facial Powder of the Fairy's Complexion Powder."
The powder has a lovely translucent pearlesque smooth look to it. Putting it on and buffing it in won't make your face extremely pale for general skin tones but it will give it a pearlesque finish with a lovely fresh scent of Bergamot.
Why does it work?
Wheat starch: helps to absorb excess oil and impurities
Orris Root: helps in cleansing the skin and the impurities and germs are done away with. It also keeps the skin moisturized and removes the dryness and itchiness from the skin. The orris powder helps the skin to retain moisture, elasticity and provides an individual with a fresh and glowing skin. Pulls out harmful toxins.
"An Exquisitely Delicate Preparation For Beautifying The Complexion" So states this recipe!
From LBCC Historical: "Please Note: We understand the grammatical issue with the name of this powder. Please be aware- This was how we found the original label."
