Put Your Time Travel Pants On: Presenting Our Favorite Beauty Commercials of the '90s

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Back in the '90s, if you asked us what we'd be doing on a Friday night, we'd have said a sleepover, a few rounds of Mall Madness, and ABC's TGIF for a little Ben Savage action. If that sounds familiar, then you'll probably recognize just about each and every one of the above beauty commercials, which were practically played on loop throughout most of the decade. Take a trip down memory lane with old-school clips from Maybelline, Vidal Sassoon, Herbal Essences, and more.
