    Very cool. The real blast from my past would be Clairol Herbal Essence Shampoo.
    There was a time in the late 70's when I would smell it on the hair of almost every girl I went out with in high school.

    In the 80s & 90s I always had Jhirmack bounce-back beautiful hair . I betcha that commercial is on YouTube somewhere, but the site's blocked here @ work so I can't search for it .

    I wish the VCS would stock Yucca Dew shampoo. I wish anyone would stock Yucca Dew! That had a wonderful scent and it always left my fine hair soft, shiny, and full. It was only available for a few years, sometime between 1972 and 1975. Sigh.

    When I was going through my exceptionally awkward years my dad brought me Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific to try to make me feel pretty. It did help a little. I'm positive he didn't spend $14.95 on it, but thanks for bringing up that nice memory.

    Heh. Yes, I'm guessing it was less than 1/10th the $14.95 price "back in the day".

    Carlie knew how to do it. It's apparent he never worried about over application.

    I remember Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific from high school. It was too strongly scented for me so I gave it to my stepmother and she fell in love with it. I also used Clairol Herbal Essence in my younger years. Clairol Herbal Essence had a nice body powder, too, that I wish was still being made. It was beautiful.

    Wow, that really was a blast from the past. I was cruising through the site and found something Im sure every girl had in her purse in high school in the 80's....the Kissing Potion roll on lip gloss. I'm pretty sure I had all three flavors.

    Love this retro beauty stuff! I used to use the Sweet Earth solid perfumes! Also used to love Mary Quandt lip gloss - I had a frosty-ginger/apricot color that came in a little pot! I liked Lip Quencher too

    Let's not forget QT, the original self tanner, it made everyones skin (and palms) orange!
    Raintree moisturizer
    Nature's Blush, it would change color when applied to your skin - supposedly to your perfect shade of blush!
    Wheatgerm & Honey shampoo, I think that's the one with the commercial..."tell two friends, and so on, and so on, and so on"...

    I loved the wheat germ and honey shampoo by faberge and used it until it was discontinued! The smell color and consistency of this stuff just doesn't exist anymore. I also enjoyed the lemon scented products and had a ton of Mary Quant lip gloss and cream eye shadows. The lipstick tubes were predominantly metal back then which was nice.

    Sigh

    I loved Herbal Essence and the Wheat Germ and Honey shampoos.

    And who else loved this neat little terracotta jar of Indian Earth?

    That's totally what I thought of! I can't find the jingle, though, just a bunch of Victoria Principal stuff.... The 'in' shampoo & conditioner when I was in junior high was Salon Selectives, in the pearlescent bright pink bottles. It smelled like green apples.

    LOVED the Vidal Sassoon shampoo, plus, of course, Lemon Up.

    Kissing Potion: I lived next to a beach. The sand always got stuck in this gloss. The appeal of clear gloss was and is lost on me.

    Original Herbal Essence was quite a good shampoo for colored hair. Mine was frosted and dried out for a while.

    COTY SWEET EARTH: Those were fun. And cheap.

    Oh boy, I remember all of these things. So much fun to remember them. Those Coty Sweet Earth compacts at Vermont Country Store are very tempting. I want all three. But I have learned the hard way that you can't go back. It's never the same again.

    LOL! Yes, I recall this! And I also wore Babe (Margaux Hemmingway) perfume and Le Jardin, which was promoted by the lovely Jane Seymour.

    I got my perfume addiction thanks for my parents: Dad and his colognes/aftershaves and Mum buying me those little Avon plastic animal lockets filled with solid perfume compacts. Little did they know...

    Even today, I love the Estee Lauder frgrance compacts!

    Ha! Remember the ads, with the really serious-sounding voiceover? "LEJARDIN.........du MAXFACTOR!"

    I love the original Herbal Essence shampoo, too. Very similar scent to Spring Green Vitabath...I used to like to use them both and have a greeny-greeny shower of freshness!

    My mum used this when I was tiny and I thought it was divine! It's also fuelled an impossible search for something with that strong bitter almond kick.

    I'm glad Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific is back. I used to have a website dedicated to lost and discontinued cosmetics and that one was the most missed by miles! I don't think we had it in the UK, but if I ever see a bottle I'll definately have a sniff :)
