The Body Shop (Marina Mall) were having a Buy 2 Get 2 Free promo going on… and as I’ve mentioned earlier, I’ve started to get seriously annoyed by all my candy scented everything and really needed more fresh and clean scents, pronto. Since I’d already purchased a bunch of stuff from The Body Shop just recently (haulage here), I only got a few travel-sized Minis this time around.
After 4 years of moving in, I figure it’s finally time to start unpacking and making myself at home… at home lol I’ve got a pretty spacious apartment, but most of is being taken up by boxes. It’s high time I start unpacking those boxes, keeping what I wanna’ keep, donating what I don’t wanna’ keep and trashing whatever needs to be trashed. A lot of is just clothes that don’t fit me anymore (since I lost a bit of weight), while the rest is just random stuff that I no longer feel the need to own. As I unpack the boxes, you’ll see a lot of these “Empties” and “Decluttering” posts… maybe.
Starting with some Hair Care stuff, I’m going to be trashing all of these, because unfortunately at this point they’ve all pretty much expired. In fact, they’re so old that most of them have been discontinued.
If you check out my Spotted at The Body Shop post (linkage here), you’ll see every single item purchased in this haul and more! Unfortunately, these babies were on Sale when I purchased them and although the Sale is now over, they’ve currently got a Buy 2, Get 2 Free promo going on at the moment, which is equally sweet (if not better)! I picked up a Concealer and an Eye Cream, while the rest are all Skincare and Hair Care and Shower Gels, all of which smell amazing! If you’re planning on picking up a few things from The Body Shop, now is the time, because they’ve got a Buy 2 Get 2 Free deal!
So I was at Souk Sharq on February 5 because I wanted to pick up another one of those Pumice Foot Scrub Thingies* (* not their actual name) from The Body Shop, when I noticed that they were also having some sort of promo going on (Buy 2 Get 1 Free) on certain items. One thing lead to another and I ended up getting:
x2 Seaweed Pore-Cleansing Exfoliator retail for KD 6/500 each
Mineral & Ginger Warming Clay Mask retails for KD 6/000 (ended up being free due to the promo)
Precision Eye Massager retails for KD 7/000
Banana Shampoo (Travel Size) retails for KD 1/000
Banana Conditioner (Travel Size) retails for KD 1/250
x2 No More Rough Stuff Pumice retails for KD 1/500 each
In addition to a whole bunch of Samples
It was towards the end of summer…
I was starving and I was in a spend-y mood (deadly combination). Now, despite the huge haulage (as evident by the photo above), I was actually very, very, very disappointed with the Shuwaikh branch of The Sultan Center! There were bugs having a party on all the exposed fruits and veggies, fridge doors were left open (meaning the frozen food items like burger patties, seafood, and whatever else were just left to melt), every single tub of ice-cream I picked up was sticky (gross!), the seal was broken on a lot of food items, other food items (an entire row of Lay’s Forno Lemon & Black Pepper Baked Potato Chips in the smallest size) had expired months ago (yet still remained on the shelves), the whole place was a mess! Some areas (with the most traffic) were relatively alright but for the most part, the entire place looked like a scene from Mad Max… lol imagine how much larger this haul would’ve been if I hadn’t been grossed out.
Also at Soug Sharq and during that same visit, no less, (it’s slowly dawning on me that I might have a problem lawl) I stopped at Sultan Center for soaps, snacks and some more Hair Care stuff (I wasn’t joking about my hair being a mess).
I was at Boots (Marina Mall) when I picked up this Shampoo and Conditioner Duo. I believe they were also available in Fresh & Fruity Strawberry, Fresh & Nutty Coconut, but not the Fresh & Tingly Mint & Tea Tree. Regardless, I was only interested in the Fresh & Crisp Apple. You could buy them separately (only the Shampoo or only the Conditioner) or mix and match (for example; Apple Shampoo and Coconut Conditioner) or just do what I did and get a matching pair (Apple Shampoo and Apple Conditioner).
