You know what made these beauty products better?
They had a dial on them. There was a click, a snap, you turned them and set them.
Products like this were made for someone like me. I took my hard earned money from working at the video store and gladly gave it away to get these little clickers in my hand.
They may not have been the best products in the world but lord knows, when I think back to them I get a little chill, a shudder if joy. Did I mention they had a dial on them??? I was in totally charge!

use of the word 'globs.'
Flickers angle on the razor world was that shaving your legs with a mans razor was downright dangerous. Really bad things could happen to you, like the razor could develop devilish cartoon eyes and a demonic personality and try to attack you.
To avoid this happening, you needed a big round, hard to hold razor made "just for a woman." Flicker had five blades inside, you would turn the dial when one wore out and move on to the next one. It’s big claim to fame was that it was “designed to cut hair and not skin” which is good, because I have that other razor that I use when I want to just cut my skin. I remember deciding not to use the Flicker anymore after wasting way too much time trying to shave my armpits with something round. It didn’t work. Guess what? This razor is also now discontinued.
The click of my mouse as I write this is making me all nostalgic.
Wishing I had a little Dial-a-Lash today, I’d even be willing to try a lower gold number. Maybe a four, I think that would be the lowest I could reasonably go.
