Just look at that girl in the advertisement above. Who WOULDN'T want to look like her? Gorgeous full curly hair, perfectly glossed pouty lips, not a wrinkle in sight, even a cute teddy bear and what's obviously an adorable eyelet nightgown. I just wanted to BE that girl. (Admittedly, the ad above is from before I was born, although I knew about it anyway. I am nothing if not a well researched beauty chick.)
|This was the Love's Baby Soft ad in many of my editions of Seventeen growing up. Who wouldn't want that dreamboat to think she was baby soft?|
So I pretty much bought Love's Baby Soft in bulk. And, I'm not sure if you remember, but THIS. PERFUME. SMELLED. TERRIBLE. I was always partial to the original scent, which smelled like super sweet baby powder. Not something you actually should want to put on yourself, but I couldn't get enough. I just felt SO grownup every time I rubbed it on. I was willing to smell terrible just for the slight possibility that I really would be baby soft.
I grew out of my Baby Soft obsession by junior high and moved onto better smelling fragrances. But a part of me will always love Love's Baby Soft.
Oh, and if you want to hearken back to the 80's? Love's Baby Soft is available for $12.50 at drugstore.com.
