When I was at Rite Aid, getting my weekly ice cream cone (it's a Summertime thing), I couldn't help but notice all of the back to school stuff. I remember being so excited for the new school year to start, and getting all of my supplies in order. Of course, there were new clothes, notebooks filled with college ruled paper, and plenty of No. 2 pencils. But the best shopping of all, was for back to school beauty products! I'm amazed at how many of my favorites from years ago, are still around. Some of them I still use!
Here are the products I'm feeling especially nostalgic about:
My routine was so simple back then. Wash and moisturize. The smell of this bar immediately takes me back to high school.
Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
So basic, and was perfect for my young skin. I don't remember buying many full sizes bottles though. They would always include a trial size in the Gift with Purchase, and I LOVED the GWP! :)
The classic pink and green tube is still with me today.
When I first started wearing this, it was packaged in a pot, and I was in the 7th grade. Now Clinique makes all sorts of black honey items, including nail polish. But my favorite, is still this gorgeous, sheer berry gloss. I carry this, and the Almost Lipstick version in my kit everyday.
Nivea Creamy Conditioning Oil
This stuff was the best! A cross between a lotion and an oil, it moisturized and gave a slight sheen to the skin. I haven't seen it in stores in a really long time, so it appears it's no longer available. :(
Love's Baby Soft
Love's Baby Soft
Scents truly do trigger memories, and this was the very first fragrance that I ever became attached to. Love's Baby Soft reminds me of mornings spent primping for school, reading Teen and Seventeen magazines, and my first crush. I still love how innocent and girly it smells. Is it weird that I kind want a bottle?
