The Body Shop Buy 2 Get 2 Free

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.

Hair Care Empties and Declutter

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.

Carrefour Mini Snack Haul

I’d run out of Chips and Dip from my previous Sultan Center Haul (here), so I figured I’d pop into Carrefour to replenish my stock, since I was at the Avenues anyway. Also, it was where I usually park my car. It’s been a minute since I was last at Carrefour, which is a shame because they have way better snacks than Sultan Center (just sayin’).

Spotted at Sultan Center

I was stalking Zara at Souk Sharq for a particular item (the SA assured me it would be there by the 2nd day of Eid, as if I was supposed to just drop everything and go shopping lawl) and of course I made a quick stop at Sultan Center. Right off the bat, I spotted the Scratch & Win display. Basically, for every KD 4 purchase of Johnson’s products or Neutrogena products or Clean & Clear products, you qualified for a Scratch Card. The featured product seems to be the somewhat new Neutrogena Hydrogel Face Sheet Masks. I took a few photos of some random personal care items too, but I was haaangry so I didn’t take that many photos.

Spotted at Sephora (Summer)

I visited Sephora again (seriously, they need to move the store to a more accessible area of the Avenues already, like maybe switch out Sephora with Next so people can access Sephora both from inside and outside the mall for quick drive-bys. I mean their current location is so out of the way from everything else!) and also, because I still didn’t get my Brand Gift (for reaching 200 points) even though I’ve already received the e-mail from the Dubai branch of Sephora. While there, I spotted several new displays (as shown above), new products and new brands!!!!

For starters they had a Mini Mania display (sooo cute!) mostly of cult fave products available in mini-sizes separated into 4 categories (all of which we’ll be taking a much closer look at, below) ranging from Speedy SportSunny BeachTrendy WorkFunky Party.

Spotted at The Body Shop (Summer)

I was at the Avenues when I noticed they had a Sale going on over at The Body Shop. It was around closing time, but I still managed to take some photos and grab a few things. I tried my best to put names and prices to everything. If there are any mistakes, I apologize (let me know in the comments and I’ll fix it). The NEW ITEMS (not included in the Sale) are all the way at the bottom of this post. To my understanding, the Sale usually lasts for an entire month which according to my calculations is August 20. So if anything catches your fancy, you’ve still got a few days to go pick it up. Hope you enjoy this post!

According to my Sephora App, I only need 15 more points to reach 200 again, and qualify for the next “Brand Gift” (full deets here) or whatever it’s called. Also, I’d just received a text from Sephora that said, “Free Gift with every purchase for Eid“. Plus, the last time I’d been to Sephora was about 6 months ago (free Sephora Birthday Gift, here), so it has been a minute. I figured I might as well pop in to a Sephora, check out what’s new (photos here), grab a few things so I could reach 200 points and get some samples and a “Free Gift” out of it, in the process. All signs were pretty much pointing to… Sephora.
