We’ve all had it happen – find an item we love, use it (if consumable) or wear it out (if not), go to restock or replace only to be met with sadness.
Here’s a list of discontinued products I miss!
Ponds Luminous Finish BB+ – I feel like I just reviewed this – I haven’t finished my tube, but now I’m in ration-mode because they already discontinued it. They still have it on Amazon through third-party merchants, but I’m still debating on it.
Maybelline Wet Shine Diamonds – An ooooldie, but I long for it on the regular. It’s a shimmery light pink (but not nude, definitely pink) that is feminine to boot. The formula was awesome and it was pretty and I went through THREE whole bottles of it. Three. Even though I’m a gel fanatic now, I would gleefully purchase this if they re-released it. Meanwhile, I’ve been unsuccessfully hunting for a dupe.
More after the jump…
Pantene Ice Shine Shampoo & Conditioner- Sure, Ice Shine still exists…in a bastardized state. Pantene is one of those companies that reformulates their products approximately every seven minutes. I miss what I believe to be the original formula.
Aveeno Nourish and Soothe Shampoo – Was nice to my hair and scalp, smelled fucking amazing (lavender and peppermint). This was in the original Aveeno haircare release, but was discontinued shortly thereafter. Jerks.
Burt’s Bees Citrus Scrub – Looks kind of gross in its little glass jar, but for a physical exfoliant it was magical. I’m not entirely sure it is formally discontinued, but I can’t find it anywhere in my area. This scrub was cool because although it had gritty bits in it, it wasn’t harsh like the famous apricot scrub we all know, AND because it came in a dry format. If you traveled, it didn’t have to go into your liquids bag! When it was time to use, you’d scoop a little bit out of the jar onto wet hands and massage onto your face. It left your skin glowing (and not in a, “I just scrubbed way too hard!” way).
What discontinued products of days passed do you miss? What have you loved and lost – and is that better than never having used them at all?
