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.

The Hunger (1983)

thehunger_bornunicornThe moment in which a movie character opens a bathroom cabinet is always thrilling. I personally get the chills because I know I’m about to see something interesting in it. Sarah Roberts’ cabinet, for example, is a very simple but intriguing one.

guerlain_vetiveraftershave_bornunicornI’m a bit on the fence when it comes to the glass bottle on the bottom shelf. It’s definitely a flacon de voyage by Guerlain (see the plastic ring around the stopper), but the bottle looks larger than usual.

Kylie Minogue’s Dressing Table

kylieminogue_victoriaandalbertmuseum_bornunicorn (5)One of the most exciting things I’ve ever seen is Kylie Minogue’s dressing room displayed in Room 106 at the Victoria & Albert Museum. A glass room contains the exact replica of the vanity, mirrors, chairs and wardrobe that the Australian singer had for her 2007 Showgirl: The Homecoming tour.

Whitechapel S03E02

Lizzie’s flat is a mess, and her bathroom is in ghastly conditions. No wonder Joe literally rushes out of it (and out of the date with the girl).

Among the products by the washbasin, there are a bottle of Johnson’s Baby powder, two Extreme Style products by VO5 (Rework fibre putty and Freeze spray) and a tube of L’Oreal Glam Shine lipgloss. There’s a box of a Garnier hair dye, too.

On the washbasin there’s a tube of Macleans Fresh Mint toothpaste. Sorry for the grimy picture 😦
