In Honor of Bonne Bell’s Relaunch: A Nostalgic Walk Down The Beauty Aisle

We just received word that Bonne Bell is relaunching its cosmetics line. Remember Lip Smackers? You could get a Dr.Pepper flavored one. Yum. They still exist, too. Anyway. This news inspired us to go back to our formative years and remember all the ridiculous beauty products we used to use. In 20 years will Tavi be writing about how silly it was that we painted our nails Vamp and coated our hair with formaldehyde? Only time will tell. Click through for a walk down memory lane and tell us about your faves.

Anais Anais: If being named after Anais Nin wasn’t enough to make our teen selves feel sophisticated using this, the heavy white ceramic bottle certainly did.

Drakkar Noir: Before Jersey Shore, there was Drakkar Noir. An ex-ex-ex-ex-ex-boyfriend used to wear it. Swoon.

Clinique 3-Step Skincare System: Cleanse, tone, moisturize. And they did the best giveaways during Clinique Week.

L’Oreal Studio Line Products (in the Mondrian-inspired white bottles): This ruled the hair aisle in the 90s, followed closely by Aussie Sprunch Spray.

St.Ives Apricot Scrub: Nothing like scrubbing your face to death with a cream that felt like it had crushed rocks in it.

Jean Nate Powder: This one’s in honor of my mom. She had every Jean Nate product. When are big powder puffs going to come back into fashion?

Lip Smackers Lip Gloss: You had to have the kind with the roller ball. Very sticky and very sweet.

Sun-In: When lemon juice didn’t do the trick, you sucked it up and bought Sun-In.

Lee Press-On Nails: Admit it, you tried them, too. There was nothing the slightest bit natural about these, and they would pop off with the smallest amount of pressure. Embarrassing!

Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific: OK, this one is a bit before our time, but the name and ads are so hilarious it had to be included. Honestly. Can you imagine the marketing meeting for this? “Let’s call it, ‘Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific’!”
