70’s And 80’s Beauty Products

As a teenager in the 80’s, my room and bathroom cabinet were always full of beauty products, some of which I still wish were available.  Like Lee Press-On Nails. What’s not to love about an instant manicure you could give yourself minutes before your friends picked you up to go to the carnival?!
Agree shampoo and creme rinse:  the fruity-floral scent was invigorating in the shower on chilly school mornings. As a matter of fact, there were so may shampoos in the 80’s that were the bees knees!  Gee, Your Hair Smells Terrific and the original Herbal Essence with the picture of the girl bathing in the pond were great.  And remember Silkience?  The gorgeous Oriental model in the tv commercial had the best hair, hands down.
One of the neatest package designs was for Lip Lickers lip balm.  Deliciously flavored lip balms in a tin slider container.  It fit perfectly in my Jordache purse along with Anais Anais perfume.
Remember the unusual bottle design of Tickle deodorant?  The see-through the container had an inner chamber which held about a third of product.
Then there’s the Aqua Net, which is still available today for those sky-high hair do’s.  It smelled awful, even the unscented had a chemically smell to it.  I’m amazed my lungs didn’t get glued stiff from breathing in the aerosol cloud that came with usage.
What else can I add to the list of 70’s and 80’s Beauty Products?
