Spotted at Bath & Body Works (Water Collection)

Here’s an in-depth look at all the products in the Water Collection! As I mentioned earlier (here), they had a promo going on and despite the sticker price, all full-size items were on sale for only KD 2/750 which was a total steal! I’ll be going over the products below in more detail.

Everything about the Water Collection just appealed to me so much, from the name and theme, to the blue packaging, down to the star ingredient (Hyaluronic Acid)! In fact, it strongly reminded me of my beloved long-discontinued Lancome Aqua Fusion Collection and Limited Edition MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection and even the E.L.F. Hydrating Water Collection, basically any Water-Themed Collection. Worthy of note, this is the very first collection from Bath & Body Works to feature Hyaluronic Acid! The fact that the Water Collection was released during a time when I happened to be struggling with dry skin was quite lucky!

The scent on all the products in the Water Collection was fresh and just so lovely (kinda’ like the CocoaShea Cucumber Really Refreshing Foaming Scrub (haulage here), only much lighter! Even though Bath & Body Works love making stuff up for their descriptions, I’ll leave you with their official description.

The Body Shop Summer Haul

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!

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!

The Body Shop Collective Haul

As I mentioned in my previous The Body Shop haulage posts (here) and (here), I wasn’t going to wait so long between visits (so that I wouldn’t go crazy when I finally did go). I was at the Marina Mall branch of The Body Shop (even though it’s not the largest in the country, it’s my fave branch, for some reason) and noticed that they were having a sale. So I made a quick stop and picked up a few things (mostly skincare). I haven’t gotten a chance to try everything out yet, but there’s a few items in here that have already seriously impressed me!

I got this message when I checked out of so I thought I’d share it with you guys. If you don’t know what is, where have you been? Basically, it’s an online delivery service with a wide variety of restaurants including those that don’t normally deliver. It’s perfect for people like myself who might crave certain dishes from certain restaurant but don’t don’t feel like dressing up and going out just to satisfy those cravings. Honestly, I think the guy that came up with this is a genius. In arabic talab means order (singular) and talabat means orders (plural). I’ve been with from the start (back when it was so I’ve seen them do all kinds of promotions. Once, I even won a phone (pre-smartphone-era).

Sorry for the quality of the photo but it’s still legible so it’ll have to do. If your order through exceeds KD7 you get a 20% discount voucher to be used at I don’t really shop at Beidoun all that much but I will visit them from time to time especially when I can’t find a specific product I’m lusting after at Sephora, VaVaVoom, Faces, etc… Beidoun has the usual collection of makeup brands (Bourjois, Clarins, Clinique, Diego Del Palma, Elizabeth Arden, Estee Lauder, Giorgio Armani, Givenchy, Kanebo, Lancaster, Lancome, Max Factor, Pupa, Serge Louis Alvarez, Stendhal, Shiseido, Sisley, and Yves Saint Laurent) but they also have perfumes, watches, and leather goods available for purchase.
