I've been looking for ages. It's one thing when a product disappears but when one of the items used to make the product isn't available it seems worse. Kinda like if they quit making glycerin or some main ingredient.
...I remember those! The natural fabric of silk was different from most and kept you very cool while still looking substantial. Now it's hard to find any natural fabric, much less silk - even expensive clothing seems to be some kind of synthetic that they over charge for.

I used to love that. Keep your eye on Vermont Country Stores. They're currently out of stock, but they do carry it. It was sold to a co in the Philippines & according to Wiki, is still very popular there. Perhaps you can contact them directly about ordering or email VCStores to inquire about inventory or giving you the vendor's email address? You never know. Good luck.

This happens to me all the time. I finally found a foundation and mascara that I love so I buy three at a time to make sure I have some.

Sometimes they just change the name of the product and a few things here and there. Nivea's post shave balm went through a few name changes as did their face wash as well as Bath and Body Works. Sometimes there's exact substitutes like generics or a competitor has a similar one. This happens with fragrances a lot. When they first are discontinued, you can often find these items discounted whether at an outlet, a store like Big Lots, stores like Burlington or the general store you buy it from until they are sold out.

Thank you, I will give it a try!

It seems to me that every mascara I've ever liked has been discontinued shortly after I bought the first tube of it.

I found a nice body oil at Walgreens a year or two ago. Walgreens discontinued it, but I discovered it at other stores. By then I'd already moved on.

But yes, products I've liked have disappeared from shelves. I think Whole Foods is especially bad about this.

And sometimes, a product I've liked has totally disappeared. I am always afraid that my Revlon BB cream will be discontinued. It is a perfect foundation for me. It will be painful to find a substitute.

I miss Ponds face powder in the blue compact container. They have a new version out, but it is not the same.

I never heard of that, but for the same reasons, gosh I love the way Head & Shoulders smells & the tingle on my scalp. I don't use it often, as I don't have dandruff & the extra chemicals can't be good... but, I love that shampoo. Herbal Essences regular shampoo had a delightful smell, as well, back in the Farrah days. I can barely remember it, but all us young girls used it as pre-teens... & the aforementioned, Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific. Ah, good memories about great smelling hair...

Hi Silibran... I'm unfamiliar with the Revlon BB cream, but when traveling & losing track of toiletries recently, I unexpectedly found a Dollar Tree & came across Sassy+Chic Beauty Benefit Cream in varying colors. For $1, I gave it a try & love it. Surprisingly, for a $1 product, it glides on easily, doesn't look waxy or pasty & is very flattering on the skin. (Disclaimer: I have normal skin... never oily, not dry/flaky, but very porcelain/sensitive/rashy/allergic/sun & product sensitive.)

I don't use it often, honestly, as I forget I have it, even though I p/u 3-4 tubes. But, as it's a dual moisturizer with fairly good color coverage included, it is something I should use more often. Also, I have very sensitive skin that burns or turns red easily from product chemicals, so it's a never ending quest to find something "good" for me. This doesn't burn, inflame or redden my skin at all. Honestly, I should run out & grab 1/2-dozen before the DT doesn't offer them anymore.

Maybe give it a try, if near a Dollar Tree. It can't hurt... you may even like it as much as Revlon & it will save you a few $$... or it might be good enough as a backup, should your Revlon be discontinued. Please keep me posted should it work for you... as an esthetician, I'd be interested to know.
