Where can I find it: appraisal services, Elizabeth Arden lotion

Q: I have been using Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Skincare Energizing Moisture Lotion on my face. It’s lightweight and makes my foundation go on very smoothly. I can’t find it in stores or on the Elizabeth Arden website. I see other green tea products, but not the face lotion. Please help me locate this. Thanks. — Carol P., email

A: Carol, because the lotion is no longer on the website, it’s probably safe to say that the company stopped making it. Especially since I found it as a clearance item on a website that carries hard-to-find and discontinued cosmetics. Check out buymebeauty.com, and you’ll find Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Skincare Energizing Moisture Lotion on sale for $7.99 for a 1.7-ounce bottle – much less expensive than Arden’s $33 price tag. When I checked, BuyMeBeauty had about 10 bottles in stock. Note that BuyMeBeauty receives its products from manufacturers in various packaging, and some might not come in their original boxes, but all items are unopened.

You can stop looking – just for now

Pat T. of Marietta wrote that she hasn’t been able to find pasteurized eggs. Although liquid eggs in cartons are pasteurized and ready to use, they’re not the whole eggs in shells that she’s seeking. I contacted a rep for Davidson’s, and I found out that the company temporarily stopped production a few years ago because of the avian flu. Davidson’s pasteurized eggs were often found at most Publix stores, so I reached out to my contact at the Atlanta division office. The store is trying to source another pasteurized egg, but it hasn’t found one yet because it’s such a niche item.
