I have fond memories of sitting at my grandmother’s vanity in her bedroom. She had a fancy makeup mirror and what seemed like an endless supply of red-orange lipsticks. I loved playing with all the different tubes and trying out different shades. Our grandmothers definitely had fewer options than we have, but some of the products that they loved have stood the test of time. Here are the old-school beauty products women have loved even in pre-Sephora days.
This heavy-duty cleanser has been around since 1904 and you can still find it at any drugstore today. Women of all generations swear by this product for removing stubborn makeup.
This is probably the most famous and well-known perfume ever created. It’s a classic feminine scent that’s still a best-seller in the industry.
Before there was Laura Mercier or BareMinerals, there was Coty Airspun face powder. This $7 powder has been around since 1925 because it really works.
This is the original rosebud salve that was created all the way back in 1892. Chances are women in your family have tried and loved this cult-classic favorite.
Another cult-classic favorite, this skincare favorite is nothing short of legendary. Since 1930, women have been using this cream to fix skin issues from head to toe.
This is the world’s most iconic lipstick in the most classic shade. It has been in Revlon’s lineup since 1952, and even gained notoriety in The Bell Jar. It’s universally flattering, which is probably why it has stood the test of time.
