Dix pour cent S04E03 (José)

There are several beauty products on José Garcia’s dressing table.

From left to right: a spray can of Doliderm spray thermal water.

Two bottles of Face and Body foundation by MAC.

A tube of Sothys Gommage Sublimateur Silhouette exfoliant.

A pump bottle of Sothys Lait Démaquillant Vitalité cleansing milk.

Impossible to read the front label, but it’s definitely a jar of Sothys face cream, possibly Crème Jeunesse Restructurante face cream.

Thanks to Scentimentalist for submitting this post.

American Horror Story S10E05 (Gaslight)

There are several skincare products in Doris’s bathroom cabinet.

The white bottle on the left is E.l.f. mineral-infused face primer.

Next, there’s a tube of Avène Cleanance Hydra soothing cream.

The jar with silver cap is La Mer The Eye Concentrate.

The white plastic bag contains Burt’s Bees facial cleansing towelettes.

From a different angle we can also see a pump bottle of Aveeno Positively Radiant daily moisturizer.

Cruel Summer S01E02 (A Smashing Good Time)

In the opening scene of the episode, set in 1993, Kate (Olivia Holt) is sitting at her dressing table: she’s getting ready to hit the gym and is putting on some lipgloss. In front of her there’s a classic drugstore beauty product and an unexpected perfume.

The classic is a jar of Pond’s dry skin cream.

The unexpected bottle is Karl Lagerfeld Sun Moon Stars, an amber floral fragrance by Sofia Grojsman launched in 1994. There’s a chronological problem here, because the perfume was launched one year after the events narrated in this section of the episode.

It’s an all-around unusual choice: Kate, the most popular girl in town, wearing a perfume that isn’t exactly mainstream (=recognizable) could be interpreted in different ways. For example, even if she’s popular, she’s not like all the other girls: she’s rich, so she can afford a niche-y French perfume.

The episode moves to 1994: Kate is sitting at her dressing table again and the blue bottle is still there, along with a pink-cap bottle.

This is a fragrance which deeply contrasts the presence of the Lagerfeld perfume because it’s an American drugstore classic – Dana Love’s Baby Soft, created by Ron Winnegrad and launched in 1974. These contrasting choices could indicate an eclectic taste or the desire to experiment with different products.

Servant S02E04 (2:00)

In the Turners’ attic there’s a round tray with some bottles, snow globes and other items covered in dust. The bottle that attracts (and surprises) me the most is the blue one made of glass, a Guerlain product.

It’s a soothing toner from the Odélys line, launched in the early 1990s for the needs of sensitive and weakened skin. Now discontinued, it had an elegant teal packaging.

I’ve spotted many Guerlain products through the years but never one from this line, which is surprising. I perfectly remember when it first came out; needless to say, I was in love with its packaging, which at the time looked impossibly cool (and still does).

The pale pink jar contains Dew of Roses skin softener by Avon.

The tall bottle next to the Wedgwood-style jar is Caron Bain de Champagne (now Royal Bain de Caron), an Ernest Daltroff fragrance first launched in 1923.

Thanks to Alessandra for the screencap and to Kelly in the comments for the Avon and Caron ids.

Pose S03E01 (On the Run)

Lemar Khan (Jason A. Rodriguez), a former member of the House of Abundance, Ferocity, Evangelista and Wintour, is now the father of the House of Khan and he’s ready to challenge his former mother, Elekra Evangelista.

On his dressing table we can see a bottle of Thayers rose petal and witch hazel alcohol-free toner and a bright red nail polish by Sally Hansen.

There’s also a pump bottle of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula moisturizing hand wash.

Euphoria S01E09 (Trouble Don’t Last Always)

In the opening scene of this special episode, Rue (Zendaya) and Jules (Hunter Schafer) are reunited and happy. Jules is getting ready to go to school and Rue is watching her. On the dresser on the right, next to the lamp, there’s Schmidt’s lavender and sage deodorant.

The pink tube on the washbasin is Neutrogena oil-free pink grapefruit acne wash.

The liquid soap on the toilet tank cover is Love Beauty and Planet murumuru butter and rose liquid hand wash.

Bless This Mess S01E04 (Predators)

Several beauty products in Rio’s bedroom (from left to right):

The tube is Reverence Aromatique hand balm by Aesop

The white bottle is Kiehl’s ultra facial moisturizer

The metallic grey nail polish is by Essie
