Everyday my inbox gets cluttered with e-mails. Even though recently I went through and tried to minimize this, I still get a few different companies that I am fond of e-mailing me daily with their newsletters, because I like to check them out when I can.
However over the holidays it was relatively quiet, but on one of the first days back from the holiday slump, I received an e-mail from Byrdie, which I actually signed up for when I received the Byrdie GLOSSYBOX, back late last year.
Byrdie is truly as they say for all things beauty, which as many know is a passion of mine.
The article that caught my eye on this day in particular definitely brought me back to my younger days and was titled, “From Hard Candy to Caboodles, the ‘90s Beauty Essentials We Couldn’t Live Without”.
I took a quick look and noticed quite a few products that I had back in the day and thought it would be fun to open up the discussion here today as to which ones I owned, as well as which ones my readers possibly owned, too that we thought would help us make it to the head of our class! I know many that read and share with me are around my age or just a bit older or younger, so again thought many could relate to this.
Here is the list of products that Byrdie shared:
- Clinique Lipstick
- Sun-In Tropical Hair Lightener
- Sea Breeze, Fresh Clean Astringent
- LA Looks Hair Gel
- Bonne Bell Lip Smackers
- Herbal Essences Shampoo
- Aqua Net Hair Spray
- Liz Claiborne Perfume
- Calvin Klein CK One
- Chanel, Le Vernis Nail Polish
I have to admit here and now that I owned so many of these products on this list. Yes, I was in high school and then college in the 90s.
And all the cool kids used Noxzema and still remember the commercials for it. Just so you know, I so wanted pimples to be able to use Noxzema to clear my skin up like it supposedly did for Rebecca Gayheart, because it was so the in thing.
Nowadays, I swear I still get some acne and not so happy about it as I thought I would be supposedly back then.
And come on Aqua Net! Seriously, I had the big hair (probably why I guiltily admit that I love the movie Rock of Ages!) back then to totally prove it and this was totally before I found a straightening iron to tame my thick, wavy mop!
Yes, I seriously also rocked the CK One back as a freshman in high school. Still remember that little opaque cologne bottle.
Oh and by the way I definitely owned a Caboodle. It was pink, purple and teal (my favorite colors) and it sat on top of my brass and glass vanity table (seriously I owned a vanity table that I could put my makeup on at). I even owned the white and pink Caboodle for nails, too!
And last, but not least and certainly my favorite of all these was Chanel’s nail polish. I swear in my college days, I actually got my nails done with acrylic. The longer the better. I even had someone once ask me how I cleaned myself (down there) with my nails that long (TMI, but still a funny story). Not sure what was going through this person’s mind or why they had to ask that one, but still totally remember that (the things my mind does remember kind of scary I know!). I owned Chanel shade called vamp and actually still have the bottle (that is pretty much empty), but still couldn’t throw it away, because it was always my favorite (probably why I loved the Nails Inc Victoria polish I received here).Chanel Vamp – Still My Favorite Nail Color So Many Years Later (and my nails back then were much, much longer)!
I was totally just that cool (not!) and definitely can remember so much of this as though it was yesterday!
But seriously, I still love NKOTB (way before Donnie was giving mouth-to-mouth this past New Year’s to Jenny McCarthy at New Year’s Rockin’ Eve!) and will watch 90210 reruns from the early 90s (when Brenda and Dylan were an item!), just because I can so no surprise here!
But since I shared my 90s loves and bared a bit of myself for all today, please share yours in the comments with me.
Seriously, just can’t wait to hear from you on this.
