The Apartment (1960)

There are several interesting toiletries in C.C. Baxter’s bathroom, starting from those seen on the lower shelf.

The spray can on the left is Gillette Foamy shaving cream.

The bottle on the right is very peculiar: the stopper is shaped after a Medieval crest. Even if the front label cannot be read (so it’s not possible to say exactly what product it is), it’s a cologne or an after-shave lotion by Kings Men, a brand whose imagery was a reference to Medieval English and Scottish traditions.

In another scene, a “bottle” reading “Tooth Paste” can be seen on the washbasin. It’s Colgate dental cream with Gardol, available in tube or in a pump bottle which reminds me of shaving cream.

Demolition (2015)

Davis has a very busy working life and a very strict daily routine which includes beauty treatments. So it’s not surprising to see many toiletries in his bathroom. D. R. Harris Arlington mahogany shaving bowl is one of them.

On the washbasin counter there are more beauty items:

Sensodyne Original Flavor toothpaste

Tweezerman slanted tweezers in Midnight Sky Black

Pecksniff’s Almond & Shea moisturising hand and body lotion and nourishing hand wash in a metal rack

Baxter of California invigorating body wash in Flora and Cassis

La voz humana (2020)

The Woman (Tilda Swinton) is applying mascara in front of a round mirror. The bathroom she’s in is tiled in different colours and is full of beauty products and toiletries.

Starting from the left red-tiled niche, I’ve identified:

Rochas Eau de Rochas bath and shower gel

Chanel La Crème Main hand cream

Perlier Honey Miel bath and shower cream and Thai Coco body lotion

Chanel Paris-Biarritz shower gel

Moving right, there’s the blue-tiled niche, where there are two hair products:

John Frieda Luxurious Volume Touchably Full conditioner

L’Oreal Extraordinary Oil oil-in-milk leave-in hair cream

Now there’s the washbasin counter, packed with bottles of medicines.

The first perfume bottle I’ve spotted is Hermès Eau de Citron Noir cologne.

Then there’s obviously the Chanel No. 5 factice.

Next, three products by Natura Bissé from the C+C Vitamin line – face cream on the far left, sun protection at the top left corner of the washbasin and micellar cleansing water next to the tap.

There’s also a bottle of Chanel Les Beiges foundation among the medicine bottles.

All the right part of the counter is for Chanel make-up items. So we can see

Joues Contraste powder blush

Rouge Allure red lipstick

A cream blush

Poudre Universelle Libre loose powder

Les 4 Ombres eyeshadow palette in Tissé Camélia

Palette Essentiel in Beige Clair

Les Beiges compact powder

Le Lift Lèvres et Contours firming cream.

Last, two toothpastes in a silver glass

One is Marvis Classic Strong Mint toothpaste.

The other is Verkos Kemphor toothpaste.

The Boys in the Band (2020)

Lots of things happen at the birthday party that Michael organises for Harold: for example, the fight between Emory (Robin de Jesús) and Alan ends up with a split lip. Bernard (Michael Benjamin Washington) takes his friend to the toilet, where they check the wound.

On a shelf in Michael’s bathroom there are four products.

The glass bottle on the left is Listerine mouthwash.

The cardboard shaker contains Spicy perfumed talc by Avon.

Next there’s Lucky Tiger hair tonic with oil.

On the far right side of the shelf there’s a glass jar of Vaseline petroleum jelly.

Five Feet Apart (2019)

There’s a box of Tonino Lamborghini Invincibile eau de toilette in Will’s bathroom. This fragrance was launched in 2018.

The green pump bottle on the left is Purell hand sanitizer (the front label has been removed).

The plastic bag in the background contains a discontinued product – Walgreens extended-angle floss picks.

Thanks to Emily for the screencap and ids.

National Lampoon’s European Vacation (1985)

In the second movie of the original trilogy, the Griswolds win a trip to Europe. Before leaving for London, Clark takes a video of his wife Ellen (Beverly D’Angelo) doing a dancing routine. The scene is set in their bathroom, so some beauty products and toiletries can be seen.

On the marble counter behind Ellen there’s a pump tube of Colgate toothpaste.

There’s also a bottle of Oil of Olay moisturizer.

From another angle, we can see a bottle of Johnson and Johnson’s baby powder.

Next to it, there’s a big jar of Nivea creme.

Wine Country (2019)

winecountry_bornunicorn (1)winecountry_bornunicorn (2)origins_plantscriptioncleanser_bornunicornorigins_plantscriptionantiagingcream_bornunicornNaomi (Maya Rudolf) keeps two Origins products in the bathroom she shares with her friends: both are from the Plantscription line. The tube is the anti-age cleanser; the jar could be many things, because the same container has been used for different creams.colgatetoothpastemouthwash_bornunicorn.jpgThere’s also the 2-in-1 toothpaste and mouthwash by Colgate.

The two tiny bottles are travel-size products by Hask: the blue-cap one is the argan oil repairing conditioner, while the pink-cap one is the monoi coconut oil nourishing shampoo.

Thanks to Emily in the comments for the Hask id.

John Wick (2014)

One of the opening scenes is set in the protagonist’s bathroom. He’s standing alone in front of the mirror, but he’s looking at the other side of the counter, where many beauty products are. A close-up on this side shows us that it used to be Helen’s, his dead wife.

jomalone_bornunicornIn the central part of the counter I’ve spotted a bottle of Kiehl’s Creme de Corps, Marvis toothpaste in Cinnamon Mint and some Jo Malone perfumes.

loccitaneverveineshowergel_bornunicorn

narslipsticks_bornunicornThere are other products around the washbasin, among which a small bottle of L’Occitane Verveine shower gel (old packaging) and a NARS lipstick.
