What's In Your Personal Discontinued Beauty Products Hall of Fame?

Quite possibly one of the most infuriating scenarios: the sudden discontinuation of a favorite beauty product. Can we all agree that there is nothing worse than that point when you get so comfortable with your beauty rituals only to wake up one day and learn that your favorite Salon Selectives hairspray is no longer being produced? First I enter a stage of shock and denial. Then I run to every drugstore within a two-mile radius, frantically scooping up everything left on the shelves--Supermarket Sweep-style.

It would be nice if there could be a "hall of fame" to keep the memories of our favorite products alive. That said, I would like to induct Salon Selectives' signature apple-scented line. One whiff brings me back to the days when I used to stand in front of the mirror engaging in a lengthy, overzealous hairspray application frenzy (in a failed attempt to make my bangs puffy like Alyssa Milano's character on Who's the Boss? ). One day you can find it in aisle five of the Times Square Duane Reade and the next day it simply vanishes into product oblivion.

What's your favorite beauty product that died and went to beauty product heaven? And what did you replace it with?
