1924 – HOW I WON THE Mineralava-Valentino Beauty Contest

We asked Miss Norma Niblock what was the secret of her recent success. Here is her reply:
“Last winter after I was chosen winner at the Arena, I started using Mineralava and I found that after a few applications it kept my skin so clear and full of natural colour that I did not have to use cosmetics and they say that was largely why I won. I use Mineralava regularly now of course I find it keeps the pores wonderfully healthy and clean and makes my skin softer and more radiant than it has ever been before”.

The above glowing tribute adds still another name to the many beautiful women who owe so much to Mineralava. Mineralava in a bottle containing eighteen treatments for $2.00, a trial tube for 50 cents and the Mineralava Face Finish is $ 1.50 a bottle, for sale at all Drug and Department Stores with cur positive money-back guarantee,

15 Dec 1923- ‘Pretty Girl’ Prize Winner Not Wise Yet

Norma Niblock, the Toronto girl who won the Mineralava-Valentino Beauty Contest in New York, has made an amazingly bad break. Although she’s Sweet Sixteen, Norma broadcasts the information that she won without using rouge or powder! Is Miss Nlblock trying to “crab” future “Pretty Girl” exhibitions, or what? Doesn’t she know that in these advanced days, Beauty is only skin deep? Sixteen! And not aware that a “Beauty Show” is merely a test of the relative merits of certain cosmetics, for which the faces of the young ladles provide pleasing backgrounds! Tho New York judges certainly slipped up badly on the job when they crowned the Toronto queen. Instead of awarding the palm to some snappy soubrette who knows all about lipsticks, eyebrow pencils, cold creams, clay packs, lotions, eyelash tweezers, nose powder, beauty patches, hair gloss, massage pastes, electric vibrators and tooth shine. The manufacturers of these commodities are always willing even eager to pay fabulous prices for testimonials from Beauty Queens. Here is opportunity knocking at Miss Niblock’s door and here Is Miss Niblock “knocking” opportunity by saying she doesn’t rouge or powder! ! ! Next thing we know Norma will stand right up in meeting ‘ and declare she has no intention of going into the movies. But fortunately, there is still hope. The public has a short memory. Nobody will remember Miss Niblock’s “No – powder, no rouge” error of judgment after a few days. Such being tbe case, her face may be her fortune. Watch for it in magazine advertisements, telling the world how Norma put it all over the other flappers by using BOOULE’S BLOOM OF BEAUTY three times a day on sale at all drug stores.

Dec 1923 – Madison Square Garden Beauty Show Contest Gives Crown to Canada

The Mineralava-Valentino beauty contest, which was a year in preparation, was finally staged last Wednesday night, at the Madison Square Garden with 88 beauties contesting for the honor of the sheik crowning her the chief beauty which carried with it a film contract and other material benefits. After passing the buck to the 100 Judges, Valentino placed though small crown on Norma Niblocks raven tresses, which signified to all who were interested that this Toronto gal took first honors. Eugenia Gilbert of Los Angeles, the popular favorite, only succeeded in placing second , and the following beauties took third, fourth and fifth respectively : Reba Owen of New York, Mildred Adam of Baltimore, and Gloria Heller of Wichita . The latter is in Kansas for anybodies specific information. At any rate, the town owes Miss Heller something for placing it on the map. The newspapermen generally leaned toward the Baltimore gal and a beauty from Butte, Montana, Marlon Fogerty was deemed likely by others. Withal, the selected winner was by no means a popular choice, although the lass were distinguishing for her unassuming naiveté in posing and parading around the rostrum ln a natural and easy manner. An inside explanation of the Toronto choice has lt that Canada is still virgin territory for the Mineralava beauty clay product. The choice of a native daughter is believed to be a good selling angle, but it is only a report. Five girls, of which Miss Nlblock is not one, have been signed for a Broadway production, although the Toronto beauty may have foregone any stage alliances -through the picture contract she inherited with the first prize capture. The second choice, Miss Gilbert, Clipper mans favorite, a dazzling beauty to considerable personality and charm that fairly radiated to every corner to the Garden. Not Slow Business As an amusement venture, Mineralava, should have stuck to the beauty clay. The Broadway managers may not allege to give one so much show but they start at 8:30 when advertised. Mineralava stressed the eight o’clock opening even on the admission tickets but didn’t start things until 70 minutes thereafter. It was an ordeal up to midnight. The show was unduly padded with the march of the beauty in ensemble and also divided into six groups with two semi-final parading and finally the winning selections. Paul Whiteman’s orchestra, a misleading announcement , since it was only a 41-piece Whiteman unit, tried to plug the waits interestingly but their lack of sufficient volume through absence of the necessary brass did not make them particularly fetching.  Reinald Werrenrath, a concert baritone, managed fairly well but he clicks better in less spacious quarters. Petroushka and Ensemble, a 14-people mixed Russian act, was a colorful interlude of no particular merit. Their stuff has been done much better in small time vaudeville. The act features harmony singing, later doing song and dance specialties, one gal shimmying for her contribution. In between the acts, Mr. Graham, the announcer, read a statement for H. Z. Pokress, the Mineralava president, that E. F. Albee would engage the 16 winners for the new Keith Hippodrome opening Dec. 17.  A number of sidelights on the contest were much more interesting than the show itself.  Several groups took the Thanksgiving Eve occasion to celebrate liquidly. It was a question what one Indulgent Was cheering when he exclaimed Hooray for though Scotch as one of the beauty in a Scotch paid get-up made her appearance. Others insisted that the loving cups be filled up. These were the consolation prizes to the runners-up, though sizes being graduated down from second to fifth place.  At any rate, Mineralava spent much money advertising its product and the five-eighths of the Garden s capacity attendance couldn’t mistake that a certain beauty clay one product was somewhere importantly mixed up in the entire affair.
