Un joyeux Noël vous souhaite THO-RADIA!  


A merry Christmas from Tho-Radia to the readers of Marie-Claire (magazine).

Tho-Radia, the thorium+radium beauty aids! (1920s) - not to be confused with those bastards in Pittsburgh who made
Radithor.  >:-o

Good lord...the model is lit the same way the old-time horror movie victims would be. Eek!

They call that "Dracula lighting" for a reason.

See, that's why I LOVE these tho-radia ads. The lighting underneath coming from the healing powers of the radium in the container...

The lady on the ad looks like she about cut somebody up.

A slightly creepy woman's head inside a Christmas wreath doesn't really say, "Please buy our makeup. We'll make you beautiful." It says something more along the lines of, "Buy our makeup... or else!"

Looks like she's pulling a Hazel Flagg -- but this time, her radium poisoning is the real deal!

"Before I finish with that female Dracula, she'll know one thing: that Oliver Stone is worse than radium poisoning four ways from the jack!"
