The other day Jezebel posted an article titled “Why Won’t They Bring Back John Frieda Beach Blonde Ocean Waves Spray?” The post tracked the Internet’s obsession with the now-extinct texturizer, from a writer for xoVain, reviewers on MakeupAlley, and shoppers on eBay (where it’s going for $179 right now) to the New York Times (yes, you read that correctly) and someone traumatized enough that they started a petition to bring it back. Viewers then shared other discontinued products that they desperately mourn. Intrigued, I decided to make a list of the most popular/interesting/quirky items mentioned. But there were so many missed products listed, I eventually had to stop and get back to actual work.

1. John Frieda Beach Blonde Ocean Waves spray.
The Jezebel post says it all.

2. Fresh Supernova mascara.
Here’s one product that I personally mourn. It was so good! The formula left lashes long and dark, but also soft and flexible. I finally had to toss my last tube after I had it for, yes, three years and got dangerously close to the chance of an eye infection.

3. Bath & Body Works Water Blossom Ivy scent.
And Brown Sugar & Fig, and Pearbody—the list goes on. “I’ve been more upset over discontinued B&BW scents than I have about ex-boyfriends,” one comment read.

4. Burt’s Bees Medicated Lip Balm with Clove Oil.
“Now my lips are screwed in the winter,” wrote one sad reader.

5. Clairol Herbal Essences.
No, we’re not talking about the orgasm-inducing scents from the early aughts—people still miss the original earthy, grass-smelling formula from the ’90s.

6. Redken No. 8.
Why do this to us, Redken? Or “WHY GOD WHY” as someone wrote of the all-purpose hair gel.

7. Revlon Skinlights Powder.
Wait, Revlon made a Skinlights powder? Where the heck have I been?

8. Caress Exotic Oil Infusions Moroccan body wash.
I wish I wrote this: “This made me smell very sexy all throughout college. Now there is a gap in my soul where it belongs.”

9. Bed Head TIGI Rubber Rage Only for Cool People.
Huh?

10. Garnier Curl Creme.
“I never had curls. Just half-assed waves. Used this stuff with a diffuser and BAM. Perfect ringlets,” wrote the person who now has to live out the rest of her life with half-assed waves.

11. Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara.
I’m pretty sure you can still buy this—if you live on the other side of the Atlantic.

12. John Frieda Radiant Red Luminous Color Glaze.
Really, John Frieda? Again? Faux redheads everywhere have been ripping out their now dull, brassy strands since this product disappeared.
Are any of your favorite discontinued products on the list? Are there any others that you still mourn deeply every time you open your makeup bag/medicine cabinet/drawer?
