The Beauty of Anonymity: Buf-Puf Model

The caption in the ad below, for Buf-Puf facial sponges, reads, "Inside every skin there's a beautiful skin waiting to get out!"  And in every beauty ad there's a beautiful model waiting to be identified!

Too bad I can't identify this model.


This ad is from the mid-1980s, and when I saw this woman, I thought that it just had to be Maria Johnson, whom I've featured here before.  However, I have since been told by friends of mine who know a thing or two about the fashion/beauty profession that this is definitely not Maria Johnson.  None of them know who this is; they only know who it isn't.

So, if any of you out there can identify this brunette model, please leave a comment on this post.

Here's the same picture of the model above in isolation, without the cumbersome ad copy.  Hopefully this will strike a chord of familiarity in someone. :-)    


It sure does look like Maria Johnson.

The rest of this month will be devoted to looks back at previously featured women, then for July . . . another new series of beautiful athletes.
