Kika (1993)

Juana (Rossy de Palma) is Kika’s maid: she doesn’t really take care of her look, so Kika (who’s a make-up artist) decides to give her a makeover.

The compact face powder she uses is by Cacharel.

cacharel_louloudeodorant_bornunicornThere are three products from the Cacharel LouLou perfume line on Kika’s dressing table: the shortest bottle contains Lait de douceur body lotion, and the tallest one the perfume. The floral can in the middle of the table is the deodorant. No wonder so many products of the same line were selected: this perfume, created by Jean Guichard and launched in 1987, was hugely popular in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Last but not least, some Kerastase Nutritive products (old packaging) can be seen on the far right of the table.
