, UNITED STATES CHARLES BASH, OF BBOOKLINE, MASSACHUSETTS.

DEVICE FOR USE IN AIEPLYING COSMETICS.

Application filed January 86, 1925. Serial No. 4,948.

To all whom it my concem:

Be it known that I, Cnanuas BASH, a citizen of the United States, residing at Brookline, in the count of Norfolk and State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Devices for Use in Applying Cosmetics, of which the following is a specification.

My invention is a device for use in applying cosmetics and it has for its object to provide an improved article of this kind.

The ordinary pad widely used by women at the-present time in applying face powder and the like usually consists either of a thin disk, or piece of' chamois' skin, or of a disk or pad made up of textile fabric, one side of which, at least, is provided with a nap or pile. Both of these forms absorb mois ture and soon become caked dirty and unfit for further use so that they are thrown away since they cannot be successfully washed or otherwise cleaned. Furthermore, most of the heretofore proposed forms are thin flimsy, unsubstantial, and very pliable having no more stiffness or substance than a piece of cloth so that'they serve merely as a covering for the fingers and lack any degree of stiffness suflicient to assist in the operation of applying powder or the like. All of the forms heretofore proposedwhich were made from textile material had the disadvantage that they would with powder and moisture so as to be rendered unsanitary and unfit for further use, while some of this class, viz, those made up of two or more pieces of cloth, required a sewing operation in order to secure the parts together which was objectionable.

My invention obviates the above noted 0bjectionable features characterizing devices of this kind as heretofore constructed and it consists of a pad for use in applying cosmetics comprising a body of elastic and compressible material, such, for example, as a piece of soft sponge rubber, inclosed by an envelope or sheath of thin sheet rubber. In the best form of my invention the envelope or sheath is air tight so that powder and moisture are excluded from the interior thereof, and, preferably, a portion, at least, of its exterior surface is made rough or pebbled so as to provide a powder holding surface.

In the accompanying drawings Figure 1 is a plan view of a pad, constructed in accordance with my invention. Figure 2 is a side elevation of the pad shown in Fig. 1. F Figiure 3 is a section on line 3-3 of Figure 4 is an enlarged view showing the outer side of a portion of the sheet rubber envelope or sheath.

FFigure 5 is a section on line 5-5 of My improved pad for use in applying cosmetics, as herein shown, comprises a body 6 of soft, sponge rubber inclosed by a sheath or envelope of thin sheet rubber that is made from two disks or pieces 7 and 8 having their marginal portions brought together outside of the body of sponge rubber 6 and integrally united by vulcanizing them together throughout their extent. The exterior surface of the disk 8 is made rough so as to provide powder holding depressions 1O alternating with a multiplicity of uniform elevations 11. Thus when powder is shaken from a sitter receptacle on to this roughened or pebbled surface of the side 8, it will adhere thereto while being transferred to the body and will not readily fall or slide off from the same. At the same time the elevations 11 aid in the distribution of the powder upon the surface to which the pad is applied.

As will be clear, the rubber envelope 78 is air tight and impervious to moisture so that foreign matter is excluded from its interior, and it does not absorb moisture from the face or body of the user. Also, it may be readily cleansed, when necessary, by washing. Furthermore, the body 6 while soft, elastic and compressible gives to the structure a desirable degree of stifi'ne'ss that is lacking in powder puffs and pads consisting of a piece of chamois or layers of textile fabric such as have heretofore been provided. Another feature of advantage is that my improved owder pad is of very simple, eflicient and inexpensive construction.

What I claim is:

1. A pad of the character described comprising a body of elastic material, and an envelope of thin rubber inclosing said body.

2. A pad of the character described comprising a body of elastic material andan envelope of thin sheet rubber inclosing said body made upon its exterior with a roughened surface.

3. A pad of the character described comprising a body of soft pliable material and an envelope of thin sheet rubber inclosing said body.

4. A pad of the character described comprising a body of soft pliable material and an air tight envelope of thin sheet rubber inclosing said body.

5. A pad of the character described comprising a body of soft sponge rubber and an air tight envelope of thin sheet rubber inclosing said body.

6. A pad of the character described comprising a body of soft sponge rubber and an air tight envelope of thin sheet rubber inclosing said body and made upon its exterior with a roughened surface.

7. A pad of the character described comprising a body of soft sponge rubber and an air tight envelope of thin sheet rubber inclosing said body, said envelope consisting of two pieces of sheet rubber, of larger area than said body, one at each side of the latter, and said pieces having their marginal portions brought to ether and integrally united by vulcanizing t roughout their extent.

8. A pad of the character described comprising a body of soft sponge rubber, and an air tight envelope of thin sheet rubber inelosing said body and having a roughened exterior surface, said envelope consisting of two pieces of sheet rubber of larger area than said body, one at each side of the latter, and said pieces having their marginal portions brought together and integrally united by vnlcanizing throughout their extent.

9. Apad of the character described comprising a. body consisting of a relatively small disk of soft sponge rubber, and an envelope inclosing said body made up of two relatively large disks of thin sheet rubber, one at each side of said body, having their marginal portions brought together and integrally united by vulcanlzing throughout their extent.
