I miss "Gee, Your Hair Smells Terrific," because it really did smell terrific. "Lemon Up" was nice, too, although I think it stripped your (gy) hair.

Concord Grape pop-tarts were excellent. So were Danish Go Rounds, but only my brother and I remember those.

I also miss quaaludes, though I never failed to disgrace myself after taking one.

And there were those weird shaped faintly Swedish telephones; loved 'em.

A great new product is "They're Real!" mascara by Benefit.

Hahaha! I love where this conversation went.

Thank you again B Wavy! That would be great.

I miss the smell of wella balsam and apple pectin.

And I absolutely miss parts of my misspent youth. I have plans to revisit it when I'm 80.

Yes I remember Creme of Nature's original formula. I have a little of the shampoo left. It's old but I'm clinging to it...lol

I miss Dove Go Fresh body wash with the eucalyptus oil in it. Made my whole body tingle. I miss Soft Batch chocolate chip and Jackson's BIG soft lemon cookies (old school).

However I have found a GREAT love in coconut oil and comfort in my hair pamper days. Since being unemployed, doing my hair has been a needed comfort and uplift.

I miss La Coupe Silky Smooth Conditioner, cones and all! Rated #1 in our own Conditioner Chronicles. Where oh where have you gone?

New find: homemade ice-cream. Nope, I don't make it myself (my cooking is limited to toaster and microwave) but I found two places that make it in walking distance of where I live. Now...is this a good thing? (it sure is a taste good thing)

You can still get "Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific" and LemonUp shampoo at Vermont Country Store.

Natural Shampoos | Hair Conditioners | Discontinued Shampoo



I miss "Long and Silky" and "Short and Sassy". Loved both lines.


For the most part, though, I think personal care products are a lot better now than they used to be.

My favorite new-ish products are Urban Decay nude eyeshadows. I looked at their collections "Naked" and "Naked2", but there were too many sparkly ones in there and sparkles look awful on women my age, so I made my own collection by buying their matte nudes separately and putting them in their build-your-own-palette thingy. Oh, I love them. They are the nicest eyeshadows.

I'm pretty sure pot is still around.

Unless you mean you just miss having pot. In which case, I agree.

Tried it this morning. Not for me. Really REALLY not for me. Or maybe I'm just using it wrong.

I also miss Revlon Outrageous Shampoo and Conditioner.

I don't have anything new that I can't live without, but I'm trying a few new things right now.

Wait, can it be food? If so, Cool Brew coffee concentrate. It's a local brand and I'm only just getting around to trying it. EXCELLENT iced coffee for lazy people.

That's the candy name, unless you're thinking of "blotter."

That sounds familiar ninja. I think that part of my brain was killed off.
