Boots Fresh & Crisp Apple Hair Care

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.

Bioderma Haulage

On the last day of the Perfume & Makeup Exhibition (Mishref Fair Grounds during October-November 2016) I came across the Bioderma booth. I hate Bioderma Micellar Water (story below) but I figure it’s been 5 years since my horrible experience, so why not let bygones be bygones? They had several good deals on a lot of their stuff. I’ve always loved a good facial mist (my first was from Evian back in 2000) so the Hydrabio Moisturizing anti-UV Water Mist caught my attention straight away. I mean… it hydrates your skin, protects your skin from UV rays, feels refreshing (a must in Kuwait) and sets your makeup! Basically, this stuff is perfect for summer! They were having some sort of deal where if you bought 2 cans you’d get a discount as opposed to buying just 1 can and paying full price for it. They kept trying to push products on me but I straight up told them that I absolutely hate Bioderma and was only willing to mend fences just recently (literally when I laied eyes on the Hydrabio Mist lawl). I figure since I was going to be stuck in line waiting to pay for my purchase anyway, might as well get something else from the brand. It was a spur of the moment thing, but I snagged a pack of Sensibio H2O Wipes because I like cleansing wipes, in general. It didn’t even occur to me (until I got back home) that these were red… and the Bioderma Micellar Water (that I’d used in the past) was red… so they were from the same line (red packaging)… and these wipes were soaked in that very same useless Micellar Water that I’d had a horrible experience with in the past. At the very least, they tossed in a whole bunch of samples (since it was the last day of Beautycon … or at least the Kuwaiti version of it), which is always fun! Here’s hoping it all works out… I’m going to be “cautiously optimistic”!

Garnier Ultra Doux 5 Plants Vitalizing Shampoo

5 Plants Vitalizing Shampoo
Real infusion of vitality and enjoyment for normal hair that is weak and tired. The new shampoo Garnier Ultra Doux draws the essence of 5 natural plants selected for their complimentary benefits:

  • Green Tea known to be a source of vitality
  • Lemon known to bring shine
  • Eucalyptus for its refreshing nature
  • Nettle known for its anti-sebum properties, and for making the hair lighter
  • Vervain well known for its softening and soothing characteristics

Its melting gel, silicon-free texture, respects your hair needs for use on a daily basis without weighing it down. Its fragrance which is combined with green fresh notes provides a feeling of well-being.

I keep seeing these new(er) Ultra Doux Shampoo and Conditioners by Garnier, in stores all over the country. I’ve been meaning to try them out for quite some time now, but could never make up my mind on which ones to get. Off the top of my head, I remember seeing one featuring Honey that came in correlating yellow packaging, another featuring Olive Extracts in correlating green packaging, and another in brighter green packaging featuring 5 Plants (Lemon, Green Tea, Eucalyptus, Nettle and Verveine). For some reason, the 5 Plants line has several variations on its name (depending on the region, mayhaps?) for example, Vitalizing Shampoo (which is what I got) is also called Vitality Shampoo in some countries and Revitalizing Shampoo in others. Even Ultra Doux is called Ultra Blends in some regions and something completely different in others. Regardless of what it’s called, the Ultra Doux range is paraben-free and silicon-free (for those who worry about that kinda’ thing). I purchased Garnier Ultra Doux 5 Plants Vitilizing Shampoo (hauled here) from Sultan Center awhile ago and will definitely be repurchasing it again and again and again…

Boots Expert Build Up Removal Shampoo

I first hauled this Build Up Removal Shampoo from the Boots Expert Hair Care line at Boots here. I knew next to nothing about this Shampoo but since they were having Buy One Get One Free (BOGO) deal, I decided to give it a try solely based on the name. Little did I know how dependent I’d grow to be on this Shampoo!
