Like I said in my previous Spotted at Sultan Center post (here), I was hangry, hence the snackage. You know what? Looking at the haulage, it just occurred to me that I kinda’ do shop a lot at Sultan Center, so at this point, I might as well sign up for a Sultan Center Card (to benefit from whatever benefits that come with the Card). Knowing myself, the moment I sign up for the Sultan Center Card, I’d probably move on to Lulu Hypermarket or Carrefour or something, for good lawl Anywho, I picked up some Chips and Dip, some Fruits, a thing of of Caramel Popcorn, a tiny jar of Caviar and some Personal Care stuff (to qualify for the Scratch & Win Promo which I’ll be going over in detail, below).
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.
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!
At the Avenues with my darling sister-in-law (my younger brother’s wife), I popped into The Body Shop and picked up these 2 Eye Creams. I was so impressed by the Oils of Life Sleeping Cream (hauled here) that I wanted to try out something else from the Oils of Life range, which happened to be the Oils of Life Eye Cream-Gel. While there, I was also quite charmed by the Unperfumed Eye Gel (which happened to be on sale) so I got 2 of that, as well; 1 for my sister-in-law and 1 for myself.
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.
SHAPE UP WITH A STIMULATING MASSAGE
A daily riffi massage has lots of benefits:
- Stimulates Circulation
- Invigorates Blood Flow
- Results in smoother, clearer, better toned skin
- It even helps combat cellulite
- Superhygienic and durable due to riffi original fibre
- Prevents and soothes tension of the back muscles, even in zones which are difficult to reach
If you’ve got sensitive skin (in any way), feel free to stop reading at this point.
Once I spotted the Al Mansour Booth at the Perfume and Makeup Exhibition, I cautiously approached the booth. Why cautiously? Because Al Mansour (mentioned previously – here) sold everything from L.A. Girl, LASplash, Milani, Deborah, etc… basically all the drugstore brands (read: inexpensive products). Now that every single girl in the world has joined the darkside (read: has turned into a makeup junkie of sorts) the ones in Kuwait have quickly sussed out that Al Mansour sells great products at a relatively inexpensive price. In case you missed it, basically it means their booth is now always swarmed by women and consequentially men who are trying to “pick up” said women, much to my dismay. I can understand the hand-holding couple who are so in love that they can’t bear the thought of being apart even for a second and I actually kinda’ think it’s cute! I can understand the grumpy older husband being dragged by his much younger and consequentially much hotter wife to these things. I can understand the gay guy whose brow game is so next level it hurts, browsing the same brow products shelf as I am and sizing me up (or my brows, more accurately) as I do the same to him, like two samurai warriors acknowledging each other as worthy adversaries before they do battle. I can understand the younger men sent by their significant others (who for whatever reason couldn’t make it) and shopping on their behalf. I understand the men who are there to purchase Oud and such from the neighboring booths. I cannot however understand the fully grown men who gather on the outskirts of these makeup booths just to leer at women. Aside from being creepy AF they also create an obstruction to the already narrow pathways and add unnecessary participants to an already large crowd!!!! *end rant*
