How do I find a discontinued Burt's Bees item?

The product was called Burt's Bees Carrot Seed Oil Complexion Mist. I was in love with how it felt on my skin and especially its (slight) hippie smell: subtle enough not to offend people, but hippie enough that my winter hat still wafts patchouli when I put it on.

I had moved to rural Newfoundland for a couple of years and brought a bottle along with me. As my supply dwindled, I went to the one store in town that had Burt's Bees and it wasn't on offer. I thought maybe they just don't have all the same products here and went on with my life, sans mist. Then I moved to California and still couldn't find it. I finally got desperate (and nostalgic) enough today to look online. Unsurprisingly, the product has been discontinued. A lot of people in reviews said it smelled like "dirt." One lady said it smelled "unseemly."
I miss it.
I know that Burt's Bees is evil (being an aggressively "natural" brand owned by Clorox) but seriously, this stuff was the best. Where can I find it?
