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).
I was only at Sultan Center (Salmiya Branch) to pick up yet another Cream Silk (my ride or die hair conditioner) but ended up getting everything else you see in the photo, as well.
I was at the Souq Sharq Boots branch when I noticed that they were having a Buy One Get One Free deal (aka BOGO) on certain brands. My favorite nail polish remover (reviewed here) was almost out so I was at Boots to replenish my supply but unfortunately they were out of stock. As I was leaving the store, this shampoo caught my eye. All I had to read was Build up Removal and I was sold so I quickly grabbed two. Boots Expert Build Up Removal Shampoo was only KD 1/750!
Since for some reason, I always run out of conditioner much faster than shampoo I decided to grab a huge thing of conditioner (500ml). I can’t remember how much Inecto Pure Coconut Conditioner cost but I usually like coconut-scented products, plus this was paraben-free.
Just to clarify, at Boots, its not like I got all 4 and the two lower priced items were free. I payed KD 1/750 for the shampoo and got the other shampoo for free. I payed the full price for one conditioner, and got the other conditioner for free. If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’ll know that I’m obsessed with build up removal hair care so I’m super excited about the shampoo! As always, reviews to come.
