    TEN-0-SIX Everyone knows that Bonne Bell gave us Lip Smackers, but did you know the brand also gave us a line of skin-care products? Ten-0-Six was an antiseptic cleanser that you could buy in lotion or astringent form. And good news for fans: Bonne Bell brought back the line with updated packaging a few years ago.

    L.A. LOOKS HAIR GEL With its bright packaging and thick, colorful gel, one dollop was all you needed to create the big, crunchy look you were striving for.

    TINKERBELL NAIL POLISH Nothing in our childhoods felt as satisfying as peeling off Tinkerbell nail polish. (OK, maybe sniffing Hello Kitty smelly erasers, but we're just talking beauty here.) Sure, it kind of stunk like burnt plastic, but it came in the prettiest little bottle that no little girl could resist.

    CRIMPING IRON Crimped hair may have made a recent comeback, but the trend was originally born in the mid- to late-'80s. Every middle- or high-school girl worth her weight in leg warmers had to have her own iron to create those S-shaped, frizzed-out waves, especially for styling into a high side pony.

    EPILADY More than a few Allure editors have very distinct, PTSD-style memories of testing their mothers' Epilady hair removers on their forearms. If you are unfamiliar, it's basically a handheld torture device that grasped hairs with a rapidly moving coil and yanked them out, one by one, as you rolled it across your skin. Good times.

    MOOD LIPSTICK Freak out your friends and pull out shamrock-green lipstick. Then aha! The trick is on you: The green stick actually turns pink on lips. Although the lipstick didn't change colors like a mood ring, it was still good for the shock factor.

    MALIBU MUSK PERFUME We fully credit the Sunkist orange soda commercials—and Malibu Barbie—for our obsession with becoming a carefree beach babe in the '80s. And even if we didn't have a lifeguard boyfriend or live anywhere near the ocean, we could still get close to feeling the Good Vibrations vibe with a few spritzes of the Malibu Musk aerosol spray can.

    RAVE HAIR SPRAY Remember rule number one of the '80s: The higher your hair, the higher your popularity. And to get that sky-high style—and status—we loaded up on Rave hair spray (when we weren't loading up on Aussie, that is).

    MAYBELLINE KISSING POTION These colorless, slightly tacky rollerball glosses gave all middle schoolers the hope that they'd meet their prince (or at least get picked for seven minutes in heaven). The flavors were sweet and sugary, and bubble gum was definitely the most coveted variety

    BANANA CLIPS The '80s were a crazy time for hair, so it's no surprise that a toothy, banana-shaped clip (hence the name) was a crazy-popular accessory. The (usually neon) clip allowed you to collect all your hair into a high, horselike mane. Maybe to emulate My Little Pony ?

    11/21 SLIDES © COURTESY OF BRANDS SEA BREEZE ASTRINGENT "Beautiful skin can be a breeze with Sea Breeze," or at least that's what the commercials used to tell us. This pale-blue toner was for the take-no-prisoners acne-fighting set. Just douse a cotton ball with it, rub it all over your face, and feel the "this must be working" sting.

    NOXZEMA THE ORIGINAL DEEP CLEANSING CREAM If you wanted clear, acne-free skin in the '80s, you had to have Noxzema in your medicine cabinet. (No, Proactiv didn't exist.) There's no feeling like digging into a fresh tub of the creamy white stuff and massaging it on your T-zone.

    SALON SELECTIVES SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER Want to know what made us feel fancy in the '80s? Buying our first set of matching shampoo and conditioner, which smelled deliciously like green apples. Even more mind-blowing? Each set of Salon Selectives was labeled with a level corresponding to your hair type. Fine, thin hair? You were a level 7.

    ELECTRIC YOUTH PERFUME BY DEBBIE GIBSON With the same name as Gibson's Billboard-topping album, Electric Youth was out of the blue—get it???—every preteen's dream bottle of fruity perfume perfection when it launched in '89. It was also embedded into every scent strip in every magazine, so you couldn't really avoid it

    AUSSIE HAIR SPRAY The purple bottle is tattooed on our beauty brains, and so is the sticky, fruity spray that we spritzed over every teased strand in the girls' bathroom several times a day. (It was all about height, right?) Aqua Net may hog the attention when it comes to hair-spray history, but Aussie was our go-to spray of choice.

    TEASING COMBS Fess up, you teased your hair...a lot. While you could probably have achieved all of that big, poufy greatness with any old comb, the teasing comb with a hair-spray pump built in was the most efficient way to get major volume on the go.

    CABOODLES Fun fact: Caboodles was launched in 1986 after Vanna White did an interview showing off the fishing tackle box she used as a makeup kit. And we have to admit, we haven't been as organized since we stopped using ours.
