Our live-in chauffeur was traveling back to India and specifically asked for Perfume to gift to his wife. Apparently, the last handful of Perfumes I’d given him (for his previous visit) were such a huge hit with the wife! She not only liked the scents, but also their performances, as she went about her day in the village, according to him. He said, every time his wife’s sisters would visit her, they’d all ask for a spritz from her Perfume Collection! So, when he asked me to give him any other Perfumes that I didn’t want. Emboldened by the success of the previous scents, I gave him the following:
After Sultan Center (spotted here) I popped into the Boots store, down the street for a lil looksy. Straight away, I noticed this adorable little Lip Balm!
Since I was going to be standing in line anyway (to pay at the check-out counter) I figured I might as well grab another pair of Tweezers, since my previous pair seem to have disappeared. I couldn’t reach the top rack so I asked the nearest sales assistant (Veiled Egyptian Woman) to give me a hand. She reached for the more expensive (KD 4) pair of Tweezers from the brand The Vintage Cosmetic Company, but I laughed and said “No, the cheaper one, please” (which cost around KD 1 and was by the in-home brand, Boots). I looked away because I was still scoping out the place (it was my first time in that particular branch, ever), but I trusted her.
It’s my fault. I shouldn’t have looked away…
Tropical: Sunset Sweet, Papaya and Pineapple Scent
I took a pic of the entire range – or at least the ones that made it to Kuwait – in my “Spotted at Boots” post (here). Like I said, initially, I was drawn to Fruity because of the adorable packaging but ended up going with Tropical based on the scent. I wish we’d gotten the fun ones too, like Galactic and Unicorn, but hey, beggars can’t be choosers and I’m so glad we even got these in Kuwait at all!

Like I said earlier when I first spotted these Instant Root Concealers (pics here), I was quite intrigued, because my hair was in dire need of the stuff! I mean, I hadn’t gotten my roots “touched up” since… I first dyed my hair (pics here) which was back during Summer lol Apparently this was available in several shades, but it seems we only got Warm Brown and Dark Brown (because… Kuwait). Aside from the the Instant Root Concealer Spray, the same brand came out with Instant Root Concealer Powder which sounds just as intriguing, but we didn’t get those (because… Kuwait). After the sales assistant spritzed some on my hair, it wasn’t an exact match, but I really liked how it “concealed” my darker roots to match my lighter hair!
They were having a Buy 2 Get 2 Free over at Boots (the one facing Carrefour at the Avenues) so I decided to pop in and check it out.
I popped in to Boots in the hopes of picking up the St. Tropez Self Tan “Purity” Bronzing Water Mousse (spotted earlier, here). Unfortunately, they were out of stock (I knew I should’ve purchased it, at the time). I believe they had a “15% off” Gosh Makeup, whereas all the other makeup brands were “25% off”. They also had a “Buy One Get One Free” promo on select brands. As per usual, the “Buy One Get One Free” did not extend to St. Tropez or K-Beauty (typical). Still, since I was there, I figured I might as well make the most of it. I picked up x2 Smokey Eye Brushes (one ended up being free) and a pair of Tweezers (to apply falsies) and repurchased that gorgeous Serum Mascara! The sales assistant also ended up tossing in a Bronzer for free (which was nice of her). Next time I see anything remotely interesting at Boots, I’m just going to go ahead and purchase it (then and there)! This is my millionth time returning to the same branch to buy the St. Tropez Bronzing Water and my millionth time not being able to find it lol
After begging Boots to bring back Batiste Dry Shampoo in the shade a Hint of Color – Medium & Brunette (because I couldn’t find it anywhere in the country) and then later on, any Dry Shampoo from any brand (it’s like all the Dry Shampoo in the country just disappeared), Boots finally brought back not only Batiste Dry Shampoo, but they even brought out their own (in-house brand) Boots Dry Shampoo! LOL
