OK, now we have a dedicated thread for you to post images of your favourite packaging; those colourful items that the admen and designers have hypnotised you into buying, those comely comestibles positively shining with old-fashioned goodness.

Most pomades still have quite timeless tins or labels, most notably Royal Cown, Blue Magic Pressing Oil, Murrays (Hair-Glo and Exelento) and Black and White. Brylcreem has ditched its iconic roots and is trying to appeal to the stupid-haired crowd.

SO - to be clear - this is for modern items with faboo vintage/retro design, right?

Good. I'm on it. My digital camera is strictly from hunger, but I'm on it.

Is it my Teflon memory or was there a lot less of packaging past than present?

Yes, you're right. I just wrote a blog article about that the other day. It was inspired by some of the things from this thread.Visit my blog at: www.practiceintime.blogspot.com

I recently read an article about a woman who blogs about her life trying to live without plastic. Mainly, she tries to deal with plastic packaging and disposable products. Read her blog at www.fakeplasticfish.com

I like Noxzema shaving foam. I buy that purely because I like the style and design of the can.

Come on, you lazy buggers; I know you've spotted nice packaging, so post it.

I was about to direct you to Trumpers but then realised their packaging is hideously 1980s with the exception of Eucris:



Penhaligons is where the properly packaged fragrances are:



Hammam Bouquet might just be the nicest smell ever.

Those are beautiful bottle!

The Clubman products still have nice-looking bottles, too, they're just plastic now, which is pretty cheap. But they LOOK good!

Here are some Nipits (not Nippits which are something else entirely). Very strong liquorice pellets.



Once I've finished my tin I may keep it as an emergency pomade dispenser.

I'm in love with the Boot's Original Formula packaging:


It's a glass bottle!!!

Did a waffly blog about it too....
http://helen-highwater.blogspot.com/2009/07/boots-original-beauty-formula.html

The "Soap & Glory" packaging is quite fun, although I'm not sure yet how effective the items within are. It's like that with Benefit - lovely packaging, but you're better off with Besame or MAC or Illamasqua product-wise.

The Soap & Glory stuff is good, but it smells AWFUL, to me. I hate that scent.
The scrub is nice, the cream feels wonderful...I just can't abide the smell!

But the little pots and bottles look nice in my bathroom!

Yes, I've got the face scrub, but it smells quite chemically!

I've been admiring the Boots products, but is the stuff inside any good? My recession bitten budget doesn't allow for pretty but useless at the mo.

It's quite good stuff, actually. I usually use their very basic 99p cleanser and toner, but I find the Original Formula stuff is gentler to my skin.
