I found a Bottle of Happy Face Cold Creme in a Slough in Pocahontas, Ark. Still has creme in it. Still smells really good. Anyone have any info on this product,ie,who made it,how long it was made,and a time period of manufacture? Thank you.
Oh my the memories that seeing a picture of this little glass container bring back.. My mother passed away a few months ago and this was my sister's and my go-to gifts for her when we were little girls. What little girl could resist the pretty face on the front? We got it at Ayr-Way (later named Target) and mom was allergic to it but never told us. On a whim, I googled it to see if I could pull up the picture and ouila! The picture w/o the blue band is what I remember. So long ago...
I loved this product! It was the first skincare I ever used. I loved that it was a cream and very light and fluffy. I was so sad it was taken off the market. I never could figure out why but my face is not happy any more! :(
Loved this face cleanser growing up !! It was the best! Hope it comes back to the market.
I really want to have this Happy Face Facial washing cream back to the market. I used it daily when I was in teenager.
I would love to see happy face back on the market!!! I look on the shelves every so often hoping to see it!!!
"I loved this cleanser! The cream was light and fluffy and didn't leave you greasy like cold cream. I used it as a teenager around 1970. Even though it went off the market a couple years later, I continued to wash my face with cream, not soap. At 61, I still don't have a wrinkle. I search the Internet for Happy Face every few months hoping that it will be back in the market. (That's how I found this page.). "
