City Center Salmiya Hypermarket (June)

I was running low on my favorite Hand Soap (Nivea Lemongrass & Oil) and my favorite Makeup Remover (Clean & Clear Deep Action Make-Up Remover Milk) and Shampoo (“Deep Cleansing” Shampoo, any would do).

Since I was in Salmiya anyway (after this nonsense), I decided to hit up the City Center Hypermarket. For some inexplicable reason, I thought they’d have more interesting Hair Care stuff than my usual haunts. As it turns out, they don’t. They had the exact same products found in every branch of Sultan Center, every branch of Carrefour and every local co-operative (because… Kuwait).

I did however manage to grab a handful (ok, fine, more than a handful) of savory snacks Potato Chips! In my defense, they had several “new” flavors! More importantly, they were being sold individually, as opposed to pre-packaged threesomes (purchased previously, here), and they were available in all kinds of different sizes (everything from the mini 40g tub of Salt & Vinegar to the – according to Pringles – XXL 200g tube). Aside from the Pringle Salt & Vinegar, the rest were all duds :(

I also picked up a thing of Americana Mini Oregano Patee and Vimto Blue Raspberry (I’ve only ever found the other two flavors, at my local co-op, so this was new to me) and a bunch of personal care stuff; Nivea Soaps and Dove Deo and my beloved Clean & Clear Makeup Remover (reviewed here) and my equally beloved Cream Silk Conditioner (reviewed here). The total for this entire haulage was KD 13/210.

The Sultan Center Haul #2

I hit up Sultan Center… while I was starving (big mistake) hence the haulage. You should never go shopping for food when you’re hungry because you end up buying way more than you normally would. Anyhow, I usually take photos for my blog during the daytime, because the lighting is atrocious at nigh (warm, fluorescent, shadows everywhere) but I couldn’t wait for the sun to come up (hungry hungry LuLu) and apparently the Kitchen has the best lighting in the house, ergo photos taken on the Kitchen Island (as shown).
