Vintage Palmolive Ad

A couple of weeks ago I found this darling framed ad at a garage sale for only 50 cents! Frame and all! All I had to do was put a coat of gloss black paint on the frame to freshen it up.

The ad is a vintage Palmolive ad, most likely from Good Housekeeping Magazine. I'm unable to find the exact ad online though. Most of the ads that I have found that are similar are from the early 30's. This one has a small '27' in pencil in the corner, so I'm wondering if that is the year this one is from? The ad itself measures about 10.5" x 13.5".

The print says "-charm of youth 'that schoolgirl complexion' The simple rule in daily skin care to follow if you seek it". I'm going to be hanging it in my bathroom-to-be!
