Bactine washing cream – vintage cosmetic video

When I was a kid Bactine spray was THE go to product for disinfecting minor cuts and scrapes on hands, arms and legs. The active ingredients are benzalkonium chloride (an antiseptic) and lidocaine (a topical anesthetic). I’m not sure why you’d need either of these ingredients in a face wash. (For dueling scars, I suppose.)

The most vexing question, however, is why this actress (which is generous use of the term considering the wooden delivery she gives to her lines) is writhing around in her chair. It must have something to do with freckles.

      @Christina: I envision you spinning around in your chair as you typed that comment. (Assuming, of course that you typed it on your phone or a wireless keyboard. Or a conventional keyboard with a REALLY long cord.)

        You imagined right..but picture me typing it on a Speak n’ Spell. Not because I was actually typing on one but because I think that would be an incredible addition to the vision. :o)

    I’d probably swivel around and around too if I had that Eames Lounge Chair!

      Wait a minute…you recognize the BRAND of the chair? Are you some kind of lounge chair savant?
