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.
For soft, sweet skin
With maize flour, polenta and a popcorn topping, the ingredients make this fresh facial cleanser sound more like food than skincare! We combine these ingredients with glycerin and corn oil to give you a very soft, moisturizing scrub, leaving your skin bright, clean and smooth. It is gentle enough to use on your entire body, and has a dash of cinnamon powder to warm up your skin.
Another popcorn-based (yes, that is actual popcorn you see!) product from Lush, this particular cleanser smelled absolutely dee-lish! As I’ve mentioned before, I have thing for themes so since I picked up the Popcorn Lip Scrub, I decided to pick up Let The Good Times Roll Face and Body Cleanser because they both included popcorn… I know, I know, I’m slightly insane.

GlamGlow YouthMud was literally the most talked about face mask, ever… and might still very well be. All the well-established magazines kept featuring it. Well-known blogs were constantly mentioning it. Makeup Girls on YouTube were churning out video after video on how to apply it. Everyone was obsessed with GlamGlow Mud Masks! Quite frankly, they made it sound like it was the second coming. Naturally, I was dying to get my hands on a jar of this miraculous product. Sadly, Aramex have confiscated or straight up refused to ship my packages in the past (due to the shipping restrictions) so I wasn’t sure that they’d deliver this little miracle-worker in a jar. So I bided my time and waited… and waited… and waited (very patiently, if I do say so myself… which I do). Finally, this stuff made it to Kuwait and I quickly snatched up a jar of magic (can’t remember the exact amount I shelled out but it felt overpriced) for yours truly from Sephora.
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.
