    two of those

    John: Look! Here's a magazine that tells how to take five years off your face."
    Mary: Good. I'll take two of those.

    What does the pronoun "those" refer to?

    Re: two of those

    "Those" refers to copies of the magazine which Mary is obviously very keen on. It tells you how to make yourself look younger (take five years off your face).

    not at each

    This is a joke, Mary is suggesting that if one magazine will take 5 years of your age, maybe two will take off ten years.
