818. Curaçao’s Air Conditioner in a Bottle

Used all over the Caribbean, “Air Conditioner in a Bottle”  Alcolado Glacial was developed by Curaçao Laboratories at Landhuis Chobolobo in 1948.  This mentholated splashing skin lotion packs a lot of alcohol (75%) and creates a welcome icy-cooling sensation *excluding* crazy high utility bills.

Besides cooling from head to toe, Alcolado Glacial is arguably the best face freezing after-shave in the world. But that’s not all!

  • It relieves headache/fevers
  • It prevents (and takes the sting out of) mosquito bites!
  • It removes make-up
  • It disinfects and cleans telephones, window glass, mirrors, etc.
Alcolado Glacial makes great stocking stuffers… but don’t be fooled by wannabes, look for the *green* bottle with the penguin!
