Description

Facial Powder Of The Fairies - 1893
Exact Original Recipe
25g
Face Powder

"Soft Skin And White" Is what so many of the cosmetic ads of the 1890's read. 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 Fairies Complexion Powder."

For this recipe we took out the talc and replaced it with rice powder which is equally as historically correct. Other than that, this is the exact recipe. The original name was :Facial Powder Of The Fairy's: - We had the original label for quite a while. The way they wrote the title was a great history lesson, but for ease and all you modern English teachers out there.. we changed it. ( You are Welcome!) :)

This original recipe facial complexion powder from 1893 will become a fast favorite. The overall look in the Victorian era of 1893 was of porcelain smooth skin. This powder smells fresh and will give you that lovely porcelain white complexion, but can also be transparent, depending on how you use it.

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: Orris acts like a blood purifier, a gland stimulator and it enhances the functioning of the excretory system and the digestive tract. The day to day problems like headache, toothaches, muscles etc can be cured through an application of orris root. .

It extracts help 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. The pulls out harmful toxins.

Great on my sensitive skin. Helps fight ache. I wear a coat of the stuff before i do something sweaty so i don't breakout before i get a chance to wash my face. I use it every day as a translucent over my regular makeup. I also wear it by itself on days i hardly wear makeup since it evens out redness & such. awesome stuff. Smells great!
