I just wanted to pick up another Nivea (For Men) Shaving Foam (full review here) and ended up getting another one of those Colgate 360 Toothbrushes (this time in Gold… yuck), some really cute Bandaids (can’t resist those) and Tweezers (neon). Cool Kick seems to have been renamed to Fresh & Cool now. Hey, as long as it performs the same, they could call it Chemicals in a Can, for all I care.
In the past few years, Vaseline and Nivea have really impressed me with their offerings! The two products shown aren’t new, by any means, but they’ve pretty much become my favorites! They do their job (perform well) while smelling crazy good and looking stupid cute! What’s not to love?
Also at Soug Sharq, I stopped by Boots. I wasn’t planning on getting anything especially since I literally just bought some makeup-y bits at Debenhams (hauled here), but then I saw that they had so many cool new products and several new brands too.
For starters, they had the SpaWax (stripless wax warming kit) by the brand Veet which I’d been lusting after, ever since I saw one of my favorite YouTubers plugging it in one of her videos… years ago. Second, I noticed two new brands which were House of Lashes (which I’d been dying to try) and GOSH Cosmetics, and even though I don’t particularly enjoy Soap & Glory (reviews here), they had the cutest Gift Set that was shaped like an actual Christmas Cracker, which I just couldn’t resist. Also, they had a Buy Two Get One Free deal on all Hair Care, and my hair was in dire need of some serious TLC. I only got one makeup-y item which was a mascara, but the rest are all personal care, hair care and body care stuff. Plus, they even tossed in a free makeup bag.
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).
Giovanni Cosmetics is an Eco-friendly, free of Sodium Sulfate (SLS) and free of Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), Phthalates-free, Paraben-free, Vegan brand that does not test on animals. Their Eco Chic Hair Care has a range of lines targeting specific hair care needs. They’ve got Ultra-Sleek (Moroccan Argan Oil + Brazilian Phyto-Keratin), Ultra-Moist (Avocado + Olive Oil), Ultra-Volume (Tangerine Butter + Papaya), Ultra-Luxurious (Cherry Blossoms + Rose Petals), Ultra-Revive (Pineapple + Ginger), Repairing (Blackberry + Coconut Milk), and Frizz Be Gone (Shea Butter + Sweet Almond Oil). I’ve tried the Purifying & Exfoliating Facial Cleansing Towelettes (mostly because of the really cool all-black packaging) from their D:Tox Sytem (Facial Care) purchased from Drugstore.com ages ago but other than that, I’ve never really tried anything from this brand before. That said, I have seen their adorable Flight Attendant Travel Kits being sold at Sultan Center (Salmiya) but since this is a somewhat “natural” brand, I didn’t know how long they’d been sitting out there fore (probably expired). Initially, I only picked up the Giovanni 2chic Ultra-Sleek Blow Out Styling Mist but loved the scent of the Ultra-Sleek line so much that I went back and got the Giovanni 2chic Ultra-Sleek Flat Iron Styling Mist, Giovanni 2chic Ultra-Sleek Body Lotion, and Giovanni 2chic Ultra-Sleek Body Wash all purchased from Sultan Center (Soug Sharq). I believe I’ve also seen the Ultra-Volume (orange packaging) and Ultra-Moist (green packaging) available for purchase as well.
