Of course I couldn’t leave Souq Sharq without making a quick stop at Sultan Center!

Origins Haulage

I don’t want no mediocre
I don’t want no mediocre
I don’t want no mediocre, no

From high-end to drugstore, all the mascaras I’ve been trying seem to be complete misses for me lately. I’m tired of all these mediocre mascaras, so I figured it was high time I just go ahead and repurchase one of my faves, Origins GinZing Mascara (previously reviewed here). At $20.50 a pop (used to be $19.50), it’s not exactly inexpensive, but I’ve spent double (if not triple) that amount already on mediocre mascaras, so I’m more than willing to shell out 20 bucks on a tube (or 2) of my tried and true favorite!

Origins also came out with a whole bunch of Flower Fusion Sheet Masks ($7 a pop) each targeting specific skincare concern and I chose just one for now (Orange Radiance-Boosting Sheet Mask) to try out. It’s not shown because they shipped it separately (and I got charged by Aramex for a whole shipment that only contained a single sheet mask -_-). Anyways, as an added bonus, I got to pick out a handful of samples, including a mini version of Origins GinZing Mascara! I placed this order on December 29 2017 and it arrived shortly after (minus the Sheet Mask which arrived much, much later). The total for this order was $52.26 (about KD 16). Lastly, I signed up for the Origins Rewards Program and apparently for every $1 spent you get 10 points!

NESCAFÉ® VANILLA Instant Foaming Mix

Vanilla-infused frothy cappuccino creates a perfect café-inspired cup you can sip wherever you are.

I tried getting into drinking Tea (Gschwendner and Teavana) but it’s not just for me. I’ll drink regular ol’ Tea (with a disproportionate amount of sugar poured in there just because I like my Tea extra-sweet) when I get the occasional bout of the flu. Also, I’ll enjoy Lipton Iced Tea Lemon (never the Peach, ugh!) during the Summer, but for some reason it’s almost always out of stock in the entire country (even though the horrid Peach is always available). Aside from that that, I’ll be sticking with my Nescafe Vanilla pseudo-coffee drink, thank you very much.

Palmolive Gourmet Spa

Run! Don’t walk! Run! Run to the nearest Boots Pharmacy, Sultan Center, Carrefour, or local co-op (apparently these are being sold everywhere) to get your hands on Palmolive Gourmet Spa. I cannot say enough good things about this stuff! I’ve already featured the Gourmet Spa Collection earlier and my favorite bar of soap also happens to be from the same brand, Palmolive. With that being said, I wasn’t expecting to be completely blown away by the excellent performance of the products shown, especially not at that price (Shower Cream KD /800 and Soap Bar KD /300)! Obsessed! <3
