Spotted: Palmolive Gourmet Spa Collection

I’m not sure if these are new or not but I saw them being stacked on a shelf while I was browsing around Sultan Center (Salmiya Branch). A few weeks later I noticed them at another Sultan Center (Sharq Branch) and finally, I saw them again at our local co-op (cooperative, jam3iya, supermarket, etc…)

Palmolive bath & shower products are always available at any drugstore in Kuwait but what really intrigued me was the Gourmet Spa Collection. If you’re a regular follower of my blog, you’ll know that I love gourmand scented anything and everything. I searched online using the keywords Palmolive Gourmet Spa but the results were all either in Russian or Turkish so I know next to nothing about this product line.

What I do know is this. There are 4 scents in the range: French Vanilla, Chocolate Veil, Strawberry Smoothie and Creamy Coffee. Each scent comes in both shower cream form and soap bar form. I took at look at the pricing and found that these are relatively cheap. The shower creams are about 800 fils (not even 1 Kuwaiti Dinar) whereas the soaps cost about 300 fils. Of course pricing will differ (but only by a little bit) depending on which Co-op (jam3iya) or Sultan Center branch you go to.

Personally, I’m so over chocolate-scented body wash because I’ve had my fill, what with offerings from Philosophy (back when their 3-in-1 shower gels actually smelled good circa 2008) and the more budget-friendly offerings from the brand Cleo distributed by Al-Shaya the one directly outside the entrance to Debenhams at Souq Sharq. As for vanilla, my holy grail is Vanilla Bean Noel from Bath and Body Works. Nothing can top that for me. That said, maybe just maybe, my new favorite is among one of the four, just waiting for me to give it a home ^_^

What do you guys think?

Have you seen it yet?

What did you think of the scents?

Are you interested in picking up 1 or 2 or even all 4?
