Discontinued Products I Miss vol. 2

I’ve written about the list of products that have been sent to the metaphorical glue factory, and since then, the list has only grown.

DIY Hair Gloss Supplies

RIP My Preferred DIY Hair Glaze Products

The Clairol Radiance line carried at Sally’s has been discontinued, and I only found out days ago thanks to a comment from a reader. I have to find a new method to execute my DIY hair glossing treatment! I aim to have a new regimen established by December. I’d tackle this sooner, but I’m getting my balayage touched up in a few weeks and its fairly pointless to mess with it when my hair is in tip-top shape.

Discontinued Products I Miss - St Ives Whipped Silk Lotion

The Best Drugstore Lotion, Ever

This isn’t a new or recent discontinuation, I just found myself wishing it was still made. St Ives Whipped Silk body lotion was cheap, moisturizing, lightweight, lightly scented, and all-around awesome. Unfortunately, they discontinued it in the US in favor of what is, as far as I can tell, a bunch of heavily fragranced, sticky trash.

Also, RIP the Aroma Steam body washes. Those things were amazing too, dang it!

Tan Talk: Jergens Natural Glow

Jergens Natural Glow

Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizers

The Jergens Natural Glow line started out years ago with a couple lotions. Since then, they have expanded to having several lotions including ones containing SPF, a mousse, and some closer-to-instant-gratification options.

Pick Your Poison

I have tried the Jergens Natural Glow Firming and the Revitalizing lines of lotions. Without having any color (natural or artificial), I’m approximately an NC20 (plus or minus a shade I suppose) – but because I take color pretty evenly, I skipped their Fair-to-Medium products and went straight from Medium-To-Tan.

I’ve been coasting along between being busy and unadventurous and being on a no-buy. Like last month, all my February 2017 favorites are drugstore (or drugstore price-point) finds. Easy to find, easy on the wallet, and worth your bother.

Worth it? Vaseline Spray Moisturizer

Vaseline Spray Moisturizer

Spray-on lotions have been a, “thing,” for a little while now – at least a year or two I believe. And why not? We have spray-on sunscreen. Even though I primarily use spray-on sunscreen for my body, I never considered spray lotions until recently.

The Motivation

Primarily? Laziness, go figure.

That aside, I recently repurchased some Eucerin, but accidentally purchased the wrong one due to a packaging change. The one I bought by mistake is effective but leaves a weird greasy feeling; that just doesn’t work when you need to get dressed sooner rather than later. That said, even my main squeeze didn’t always dry as fast as I’d like – in winter I’m not terribly keen on being chilly while lotion dries.

The $6 can of Vaseline Spray Moisturizer was a low-risk gamble in the first place, but throw in a coupon from the paper and it was an easy choice.
