They were stocking the shelves at Bath & Body Works (Marina Mall) with two new(er) collections so I decided to pop in for a quick look and ended up with two bags worth… as per usual. I was actually on the lookout for the Tutti Dolce Collection but apparently that’s too much to ask for. The two new(er) collections that we did have were released world-wide sometime in 2016, while we were only just getting them (in Kuwait) in the middle of February 2017. As always, they had a “Buy Two Get One Free” deal. Sadly, they don’t let you combine products from other collections, which I think is silly because not everyone is crazy as I am and willing to experiment with full-sized, all-new products, at a time. Even I would like to combine my tried and true favorites with some of the newer stuff and qualify for that deal, rather than having to purchase three newer products and three older products from their signature collection. Granted, I’m actually purchasing four products and getting the two for free but still, that’s a total of six too many, as opposed to a more reasonable total of three products. I could just purchase one product be done with it but truth be told, Bath & Body Works products are over-priced (which is painfully obvious during their Big Sale) so even though I’m technically spending more money, if I get a deal on them, it tricks my brain into thinking I’m saving more money in the long run… Does that make sense?
I found it! I found the actual physical Lush store at The Avenues. Technically, my cousin was the one who led me to it. She shops there regularly because she has sensitive skin and Lush products along with L’Occitane are apparently the only products that won’t irritate her skin.
I picked up D’Fluff Strawberry Shaving Soap, Let The Good Times Roll Face and Body Cleanser, King of Skin Body Butter, Popcorn Lip Scrub, and… I dunno’ what the last one is but I found a bunch of them by the cash register so I picked up one for myself and one for my cousin because they smelled lemon-y.
The great big box in the background with Christmassy frosted biscuits is a Face & Body Set called My Weekend Getaway Essentials. In the forefront we’ve got tiny Crayon Kohl Pencils in the shade 01 Intense Black (x3) which were free, a deluxe sample-sized Wonder Perfect Mascara which was part of the My Weekend Getaway Essentials Set, and finally an Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil and Mascara Supra Volume.
I still stop by Bath & Body Works every couple of months to replenish my stock with a few necessities (Deep Cleansing Hand Soap, Wallflower Refill Bulbs, etc…) but I figured it would be boring showing you the same things over and over again, simply because it’s usually the same products, in the same scent (Dark Kiss).
Looking at the sun right now, it’s kinda’ hard to believe it was raining, just a few hours earlier. I think it’s hilarious that people who live in Kuwait get so excited when there’s a little sprinkle of rain (myself included) whereas people who live in countries where it’s constantly raining, actually prefer sunny days to rainy days, to the extent that they’ll even get depressed when there’s a slight overcast. Life is funny! Personally, I love, love, love the rain! Which side of the fence are you on? Do you love the rain or do you prefer clear skies? I’ve been in the mood to listen to this song so I figured I’d share it with you guys. For those who’ve never heard it before, as well as those of you who are listening to it again, hope you enjoy!
I really must visit The Body Shop more often because I wait so long in-between visits and miss out on a whole slew of new releases that I end up going crazy (and purchase everything) when I eventually do go.
Lime, grapefruit and lashings of salt go into this invigorating scrub. The salty, citrus fragrance is refreshing on the skin and mind, like diving into the cool blue ocean.
