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.

Many scenes of the tv show are set at Adele’s, the Kiplings’ hairdresser’s shop. In the screencap above, a jar of Vaseline pure petroleum jelly is visible, along with a spray can of Raveen oil sheen and conditioner, a Marvy Marvcide sanitizing jar and a bottle of Sea Breeze astringent for skin and scalp.
