My all time favorite beauty product is CoverGirl Trublend Minerals Blush in Shimmering Sands which is no longer in stores . I had to order it from Amazon. It's a loose powder that really gives a nice glow. I haven't found anything that comes close.

I've had that happen with cosmetics, soaps, cleaning products, and I'm sure other things I can't remember right now. Either they vanished or else they were "new and improved" beyond recognition.

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.
The thing is the BB cream that I use matches my skin tone better than any other foundation I've ever found. I experimented with an actual foundation from Revlon recently, and honestly the BB cream matches better. I have trouble finding a good match. Most companies don't do much with my skin color, and sometimes the lighter shades have a sort of gray undertone, which is not best for me.

Another one is The Body Shop - The Spirit of Moonflower body spray. I loved that smell.

Sure, I understand. Same here. I'm extremely fair so find it hard to find companies that even make a color light enough for me. I'm not familiar with gray undertones, but don't like red or yellow. It's hard to find neutral.

No worries. I'm just so surprised I found a good product for $1... never happened before. Worth a try. It can always be used as a highlighter, blush or contour (depending on color) if it's not optimal. Your choice.

BShop had a lovely, lightly rose scented body cream for $25, which is outrageous, but a now & again splurge. They discontinued many products when Anita sold the company. I find that with a lot of companies. Once they sell out to giant conglomerates, the formulas change, products are discontinued & quality often degrades.

Your fragrance is still sold, but maybe you can find some cheaper sites, like Perfumania or other fragrance sites. Good luck.

Body on Tap Beer Shampoo: Earthy fragrance and made my fine, wispy hair full and shiny - gone. I attempted making my own using stale beer but it wasn't the same.
Breck Basic: Extra texture leave in leave-in treatment, loved this stuff - gone.
Flex Extra Body Shampoo: Used to get this for $1.00 - Amazon has it but the price is $35.99+ $5.99 shipping...I don't think so!

Oh man, the horrors of bra shopping deserve their own subforum. The people who make them don't seem to understand how actual human bodies are shaped. I even got measured at a nice department store and overpaid for nice bras, and then had them become very uncomfortable and then fall apart. Psh. I have ~some~ luck at Target. I'm the unfortunate soul with small bosoms who is not skinny as a 10 year old. The fashion industry seems to think that if you wear an A or B, you must be rail thin. I need like a 36 and it's hard to find with smaller cups, total pain to find what I need, let alone that I LIKE, and a brand sticking around? haha!

Yeah. I also suffer this phenomenon with food items that I love being discontinued, or if I'm lucky simply not distributed in my area, but available online...

I did get lucky with my regular (in the shower) hair conditioner though. I was using Infusium 23, and it vanished, and I was aggravated thinking that it was gone...but then it came back in a different style and color of bottle. I hope it's the same product inside, I haven't bought it since then so far. I discovered a new conditioner at Walgreen's that I actually like...a weird little organic brand, that smells very nice. However, I'll go back to Infusium, because while I dig the scent, I do not dig that it doesn't rinse as easily. I have long, thick hair and don't need to spend an hour fighting to get the conditioner rinsed out.

If seen a few of the brands mentioned at www.vermontcountrystore.com. I don't know if they are still available but it might be worth checking out.

I never really wore mascara, because I always had such long lashes that I thought it looked weird...but I never got why there were so many mascaras anyway, and why they keep coming out with new ones...isn't that just saying, "hey, our previous formulas sucked, try this one!" Just seems like another ploy to get people (read, women) to spend more money on something they don't need or that is pretty much the same thing...
