Tragedy of the toiletry kind.

Bath & Body Works makes a product called 'Miraculos Monoi' that is far and away my all-time fave moisturizer. It's a lightweight oil with a non-offensive scent that you can use on your hair, skin or even in the bath.


So imagine my surprise when I waltzed into BBW on my lunch hour to purchase a replacement to my ever-dwindling stash and the 17-year-old gum popping sales associate tells me that they, "Like, haven't made that product in, like, years."

For the record, she was annoying. "We discontinued the shimmer version, like, 2 years ago. I've never heard of it without the shimmer and I've worked here, like, four and a half years." Gum pop.

Yeah, sweetie. That's just what I want. To walk around glowing like the sun in all my teenybopper glory. Not.

Fast forward through me rolling my eyes at her, walking out the door and landing at my desk. I thought for sure a little ebay/amazon/Googling would do the trick, but I'm coming up empty handed.

This is a sad day, indeed. Almost as sad as the day McDonald's takes the Shammy Shake off the menu.

Le sigh. My skin will never be the same.

I'm pretty sure that I have seen that recently here in C-bus (home of BBW). Did you want the lotion or the spray? If I see some I'll snag for you!

Why do they do that? They always discontinue the good stuff and then come out with something terrible to replace it. I hope you can find it!

Your description sounds like good ol fashioned coconut oil. Good luck!

That store does that to me every time I find something I like.

I first read the title as "Tragedy of the Toilet Kind" and all I could think of was that one time at Wolverine when Ron & Keith came to plunge the Up Lodge toilets and we could all hear Ron say, "Looks like we a got a little POOP goin' on here!"

Hi, Thanks for sharing such a wonderful piece of information. I must say that while reading your post I found my thoughts in agreement with the topic that you have discussed on Toiletry, which happens very rare.
