For the sake of convenience (it’s just easier for me), I decided to split up my Sephora Haul into 2 posts. This one will feature all the stuff that came in the Holiday Gift Box and the next post will feature stuff I actually payed for at Sephora.
If you don’t feel like reading, you can just click the link and scroll all the way down to see the Black Card Gift and Gold Card Gift on display in-store (here) or the very bottom of this post to get a closer look at the Black Card Gift (12pc deluxe samples).

When I payed for my stuff at the check-out counter at Sephora, I was delightfully surprised when the woman behind the cash register pulled out a “Festive Gift Box” and placed it in my shopping bag, alongside the rest of my stuff!
I visited Sephora again (seriously, they need to move the store to a more accessible area of the Avenues already, like maybe switch out Sephora with Next so people can access Sephora both from inside and outside the mall for quick drive-bys. I mean their current location is so out of the way from everything else!) and also, because I still didn’t get my Brand Gift (for reaching 200 points) even though I’ve already received the e-mail from the Dubai branch of Sephora. While there, I spotted several new displays (as shown above), new products and new brands!!!!
For starters they had a Mini Mania display (sooo cute!) mostly of cult fave products available in mini-sizes separated into 4 categories (all of which we’ll be taking a much closer look at, below) ranging from Speedy Sport – Sunny Beach – Trendy Work – Funky Party.
Originally designed as a 10-minute professional ‘facial in a jar’ for behind-the-scenes use in Hollywood’s Entertainment, Music, Fashion & Award industries. YOUTHMUD® provides gentle resurfacing exfoliation and helps to leave skin smoother, brighter, and softer resulting in immediate camera-ready glowing skin. For Men & Women. Get your Youthful Sexy Glow back in just 10 minutes. YOUTHMUD® for Super Sexy Super Radiant Skin™.
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.
