Beauty Flashback: Cover Girl

Did you know that sailors abandon their womenfolk due to acne? Sad but true, according to this 1965 Cover Girl commercial. But with a bouncy little jingle and Noxzema-infused foundation, you'll be able to bring the men right back . . . or so the ad would like you to think.

Only cartoon sailors leave for zits. Since I don't regularly date two-dimensional men, I'm skipping this product.

I always wanted to know what a commercial looked like back the and if it was that easy to cover up acne. If it was I would be so very happy.

Well that ad was silly, what kind of man leaves you for a zit?Slightly off the topic I'm surprised more men don't wear medicated foundation or concealer.You know those young men have more acne then face? Is a men wearing makeup so much worst then looking like one giant zit?

The commercial looks pretty but a sailor leaving because his girl's complexion isn't always flawless is ridiculous.
