Toiletry Treats of the 1950s

During the run up to Christmas in the 1950s, your local chemist would be stocked high with gift sets that included talcum powder, bath cubes, soap and perhaps a bottle of perfume or lavender water.

Whatever the formula, these sets made ideal presents, a safe bet for mum or an aunt.

This selection of toiletry treats is part of Robert Opie’s book, ‘The Fun of the Fifties’

Popular brands included Goya, Field’s, Jane Seymour and, perhaps the most prestigious, Evening in Paris.

Each presentation box was enticingly laid out and included a small card upon which the giver could add their name.

Now, which one do you think Auntie Flo would like?
