Bones and All (2022)
There’s a small glass bottle of Oil of Olay beauty lotion on the dressing table in the house of one of Sully’s victims.
The pineapple-shaped bottle is Avon Pineapple Petite. It’s impossible to tell what fragrance it contains because the American brand has often used the same bottle to house different scents.
Other two Avon products are on the dressing table, too: they are Lemon Velvet and Lily of the Valley cream sachet jars.
Thanks to Alessandra for submitting this post and to Kelly in the comments for the Avon cream sachet id.
We Are Who We Are E05 (Right Here, Right Now #5)
Irish Spring soap can be seen in a drawer in Caitlin’s parents’ bathroom.
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.
Just a few moments before starting the performance of Volk, the dancers of the Markos Tanz-Akademie get in a line. On one shelf by the dressing room mirrors there’s an unusual product: Roxy hand-cleaning paste by the German brand Pelikan. Famous for its fountain pens and writing instruments, Pelikan invented this product  for cleaning hands from ink, oil and dirt. A product definitely needed in the creepiest dance academy of West Berlin.
 It was already on the market in 1938 (as shown here).
There’s a bottle of Wella Balsam instant hair conditioner in the dressing room at the Markos Tanz-Akademie
On the Set of “Call Me by Your Name”
I haven’t watched Call Me by Your Name by Luca Guadagnino yet, but I’ve kept the best picture from the set for last. The author is – again – Giulio Ghirardi, who gave us the perfect shot of a dressing table, covered with some fabric from the Middle East.
Among the several perfume bottles, I’ve spotted Christian Dior Eau Sauvage, a 1966 creation by Edmond Roudnitska.
Next to it, there’s Acqua di Parma Colonia, the first fragrance of the Italian brand, created in 1916.
The blue tin unmistakably contains Nivea Creme, a product created in Germany but incredibly popular in Italy.
Another quintessentially Italian product is Roberts Acqua distillata alle rose, a toner first created in 1867.
Last but not least, there’s a bottle of Vanderbilt by Gloria Vanderbilt, a huge commercial success created by Sophia Grojsman in 1982. It’s impossible not to have a memory of it, if you were born in the 1970s/1980s: this white floral fragrance was everywhere!
On the Set of “Call Me By Your Name”
When I bumped into pictures from the set of Call Me By Your Name (2017) by Luca Guadagnino, I felt my id radar tingle, because I knew plenty of beauty products were waiting to be identified. The pictures, taken by the Italian photographer Giulio Ghirardi, beautifully portray the elegant interiors of the 17th-century Lombardy mansion where the film is set. The green-tiled bathroom  is filled with Italian drugstore products which bring me back to my childhood.
On the bathtub metal tray there’s a bottle of Antica Erboristeria shampoo.
From a different perspective we see there are other two shampoo bottles on the tray – Johnson’s Baby shampoo and Schultz chamomile shampoo.
On the glass shelf by the mirror there’s a bottle of Soluzione Schoum, a medication for urinary and biliary tract spasms. The jar with the blue cap is the pre-shave/after-shave cream Prep, with a delicious mentholated scent.
On the table by the door there’s a bottle of Roberts Borotalco talcum powder. The bottle made of dark glass is another Italian digestive tonic, Amaro Medicinale Giuliani.
 It’s nice to see the bathroom has Palladian floors, made with the ancient technique of using small pieces of marble or stones. Such a typically Italian floor style!
A Bigger Splash (2015)
Marianne Lane (Tilda Swinton) is putting her make-up on just before hitting the stage. Her frosted lipstick is by MAC.
On her dressing table some MAC boxes can be seen, along with a bottle of Själ Balans deep-pore cleanser.
