We Are Who We Are E02 (Right Here, Right Now #2)

Among the toiletries in Caitlin’s parents’ bathroom, there are a bottle of Old Spice Classic cologne and Speed Stick deodorant.

When she moves into her own bathroom, we can see two Palmer’s products (coconut body oil in a spray bottle and cocoa butter formula).

The deodorant in the silver case is Old Spice Swagger.

The green bottle contains Galàn Moco de Gorila hair gel.

I Am Not Okay with This S01E04 (Stan by Me)

There are several products in Stanley’s shower. The green bottle on the top shelf is Prell Classic Clean shampoo.

The grey bottle next to it is Dove Men+ Care extra fresh body and face wash.

The green soap on the second shelf is by Irish Spring.

The blue tube on the same shelf is Noxzema Ultimate Clear anti-blemish daily scrub.

Thanks to Emily for the screencap and ids.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel S03E01 (Strike Up the Band)

The new season opens with new adventures and new career goals for Midge (Rachel Brosnahan): she’s performing at a military gig to entertain the troops. Before the performance, we see her backstage with Susie (Alex Borstein), adding the final touches to her red, white and blue outfit.

On her dressing table there’s a can of the Australian hairspray Gossamer.

On another dressing table there’s the round cardboard box of Coty Airspun loose powder.

The Politician S01E03 (October Surprise)

When Peyton (Ben Platt) finally pays a visit to his former girlfriend Alice (Julia Schlaepfer), we finally get to see her bedroom (beautiful as the rest of her mansion) and her dresser. Unfortunately, it’s just a fleeting moment, but I’ve been able to identify some of the bottles sitting on it.

There are two perfumes with very distinctive bottles. The white one is Tom Ford Soleil Blanc eau de parfum, part of the Private Blend collection, created by Nathalie Gracia-Cetto and launched in 2016. The round bottle is Chanel Chance, possibly the Eau Tendre version, created by Jacques Polge and launched in 2010. There are also two Moroccanoil products: the pump bottle is the hydrating styling cream, while the spray bottle is Glimmer Shine finishing spray.

Glow S03E08 (Keep Ridin’)

Debbie (Betty Gilpin) visits Bobby (Kevin Cahoon) in his dressing room because she’s got an offer: she wants to produce the annual AIDS fundraiser he’s organising.

fabergeaquanetsuperhold_bornunicornHis dressing table is quite busy: on it I’ve spotted Sure deodorant and Fabergè Aquanet super-hold hairspray.

The silver ball-topped perfume bottle just under Debbie’s wrist is kind of obsessing me: my instinct says it’s by Avon, but I haven’t been able to find any evidence. Any ideas about it?

Glow S03E08 (Keep Ridin’)

Bash Howard (Chris Lowell), heir to the Howard Foods business empire and producer of GLOW, is one of my favourite characters of the show, so a scene set in his bathroom was very much welcomed by yours truly, who couldn’t wait to take a look at his beauty products.

First on the left of the marble top, there’s a bottle of Ralph Lauren Polo, the aromatic fragrance created in 1978 by Carlos Benaim. No surprises here: Bash is a flamboyant ring announcer and commentator, but he’s very conservative when it comes to appearances. A relatively traditional eau de toilette like Polo suits his character.

His hairstyle is very distinctive and trendy, so it’s obvious there are lots of styling products. There are two bottles of Vitalis hair tonic and an array of L’Oreal Studio Line items (hairspray, two mousses and gel). The choice of using Studio Line is excellent: this hairstyling line was very popular in the 1980s! I liked using Gelling Curls.

Glow S03E04 (Say Yes)

There’s a can of Aquanet unscented super-hold hairspray on Bobby’s dressing table. The silver-ish bottle on its left reminds me of Halston perfume, which would be really appropriate, since Bobby has just done a beautiful performance in drag as Liza Minnelli, one of the most famous Halstonettes.
