I was at Sultan Center and thiiiis close to buying either a L’Oreal or Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water (just to see why people are still going crazy over Micellar Water) but changed my mind at the last second and picked up this Cleansing Milk instead. I know for a fact that Micellar Water does nothing for me, so why waste any more money on it? My Holy Grail will always be Clean & Clear Deep Cleansing Makeup Remover (reviewed here). However, it’s good to have a few makeup removers that perform similarly, just in case for whatever reason the entire country runs out of stock (which is what happened here and here).
I was at Boots (Marina Mall) when I picked up this Shampoo and Conditioner Duo. I believe they were also available in Fresh & Fruity Strawberry, Fresh & Nutty Coconut, but not the Fresh & Tingly Mint & Tea Tree. Regardless, I was only interested in the Fresh & Crisp Apple. You could buy them separately (only the Shampoo or only the Conditioner) or mix and match (for example; Apple Shampoo and Coconut Conditioner) or just do what I did and get a matching pair (Apple Shampoo and Apple Conditioner).
Normally, I prefer my lipbalms to be scented, flavored, and have nice packaging. I’ve never really been into ChapStick because the only one readily available in Kuwait was the boring old regular one (Classic). It goes without saying that I never tried it because I was never even tempted to. Even when Katy Perry mentioned it in her song, all I thought was “ewww… cherry” (can’t stand the scent and taste of artificial cherry). When drugstore.com started selling ChapStick Green Apple, I was ecstatic! I quickly added it to the rest of the items in my shopping cart and placed my online order. I loved it so much that I’ve been repurchasing it (in bulk) every time I place an order on drugstore.com/beauty.com ever since, but unfortunately that’s no longer an option because drugstore.com and beauty.com closed down (read all about it – here).
Let me preface this by saying I know that Head & Shoulders is pretty much synonymous with dandruff. However, I thankfully do not suffer from dandruff. I purchased this dandruff fighting shampoo because I figured I could use it as a clarifying shampoo (to remove product build-up). I figure if it’s formulated to get rid of dandruff from people’s scalps, then why not use it to remove product build-up (dry shampoo, hairspray, serum, leave-in conditioner, etc…) from my scalp? Pretty clever, right? I know, I know. In fact, I was patting myself on the back, right after purchasing this huge thing of shampoo (I wanna say 2 Kuwait Dinars and some change but the price washed off in the shower so I’m not too sure) and it is huge at 420mL/14.2 FL OZ.
This Victoria’s Secret Appletini Gift Set was another purchase made at Mishref Fair Grounds. The Beauty Rush Appletini Body Double Mist (75mL/2.5 FL OZ), Beauty Rush Body Drink Lotion (50mL/1.7 FL OZ), and Sexy Little Things Noir Scented Body Lotion (30mL/FL OZ) all came in a small Victoria’s Secret Bag. I wanna say the set cost KD 9/000 originally and was reduced to KD 6/750 but I could be making that up. Whatever the cost, I obviously thought it was worth it at the time especially because these were travel size and I think anything tiny is adorable. For reference, the original size of the Appletini Body Double Mist is 250mL/8.4 FL OZ and the Appletini Body Drink Lotion is 200mL/6.7 FL OZ and the Sexy Little Things Scented Body Lotion is 200mL/6.7 FL OZ
I was delighted when I found this Greenland Apple Body Scrub at Mishref Fair Grounds during the Perfumes and Makeup Exhibition. I purchased this for KD 4/500 at the Makeup Al-Mansour booth (along with several other items but more on those in another post). Although the packaging does come across as a bit cheap-y, I just couldn’t resist picking this up, especially since it had the picture of a green apple on it. Plus, Makeup Al-Mansour is kinda’ known for selling drugstore products, not luxury items. I actually discovered Makeup Al-Mansour years and years ago (before I even thought about starting this blog) at Mishref Fair Grounds during another of those bi-annual Perfume and Makeup Exhibitions and decided I just couldn’t wait for another six months just so I could shop there again, so I hunted down their actual physical store (which happened to be in City Center, Salmiya branch). However, that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy browsing their booth at Mishref Fair Grounds whenever I do happen to make it there, during the exhibition. I always manage to find the coolest stuff (at least, to me) that I don’t normally find in-store, for whatever reason. This Greenland Apple Body Scrub, for example, is pretty cool, to me!
