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.
Behind Pineapple Petite there’s a rare bottle of Jonteel fragrance. This is part of a line produced by Langlois and discontinued in 1941; as explained by Grace at Cleopatra’s Boudoir it included “perfume, toilet water, face powder, vanishing cream, cold cream face powder, soap, cold cream, wool powder puffs, and talcum powder.”
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, to Caroline Louise for the Jonteel id and to Kelly in the comments for the Avon cream sachet id.

The green box on the same shelf contains Badedas bath gel, a gift that Jenny (Twiggy) receives from Ronnie.
The bottle on the washbasin is Vaseline Intensive Care lotion.
Thanks to Lee in the comments for the Vaseline id.

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.

Postcards from the Edge (1990)
ABBA’s Dressing Room
A couple of weeks ago, my friend Raffaella went to Stockholm, where she visited ABBA The Museum. She sent me some awesome pictures of the band’s dressing tables, so let’s see what’s on them.
On the left, next to the metal suitcase, there’s a box of Cacharel Anaïs Anaïs, the ultra-feminine and romantic perfume created in 1978 by Roger Pellegrino, Robert Gonnon, Paul Leger and Raymond Chaillan. The yellow bottle next to it is probably a shampoo or a shower gel; the brand is LdB (Lait de Beauté), a very famous Swedish brand established in 1948.
There’s also the unmistakable golden can of L’Oreal Elnett Satin hairspray.
Next to the hairspray, there’s the spray bottle of a Dior scent. The front label is not visible, so it’s impossible to tell exactly what perfume it is. It could be the Miss Dior cologne, the Eau Fraiche, Miss Dior eau de toilette, Diorissimo eau de toilette, or another Dior perfume who had the same bottle.
Just behind the glass, there’s a bottle of Oil of Olay moisturizing fluid.
There’s the beautiful royal blue, black and silver metal bottle of Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche, too. Created by Michael Hy and launched in 1971, it’s a floral aldehyde scent.
On the far right there’s a bottle of Givenchy III, created by Pierre Dinand and launched in 1970 to celebrate the opening of the Givenchy store on 3 Avenue George V in Paris.
In the front row there are make-up products, among which a box of Kryolan false eyelashes and a Color Riche lipstick by L’Oreal. I’m not sure about this last id, though. L’Oreal lipsticks used to have a dark (aubergine?) case in the 1980s; ABBA’s last album, The Visitors, was released in 1981: had L’Oreal introduced the gold-case lipsticks yet?
On another table we can see a tin box of Nivea Creme. Next to it, an amphora-shaped bottle with gold cap: this is Nina Ricci L’Air du Temps. Despite being famous for its twin-dove fluted bottle, the perfume (eau de toilette version) was sold in this more basic bottle in the 1970s and 1980s.
There’s also a spray bottle of Rochas Madame Rochas, a Guy Robert creation launched in 1960.
The black compact in the centre front row is an eyeshadow palette by Elizabeth Arden. There’s another black compact on the right: I think it’s by Yves Saint Laurent (see the red and black logo with gold lettering), but I personally have no memory of black make-up cases, only gold ones.
