My last order from Nordstrom, which consisted mostly of Hair Care and Perfume, was back in the beginning of the year (here).
Over the course of that same year, I’d accumulated quite a few things that I’d wanted to purchase from Nordstrom.
Now that the year was almost at an end, on Nov 30 2020 I placed yet another online order with Nordstrom.
There weren’t all that many good deals, this time around.

Same day, different receipt. I picked up a bunch other stuff at Bath & Body Works, besides those Henri Bendel Signature Candles (hauled here). Like I said, I’ve pretty much been avoiding the place (Bath & Body Works), meaning I hadn’t been keeping up with all the new releases. Meanwhile, they (Bath & Body Works) had come out with a whole slew of new products! Ultra Conditioning Bath & Shower Jelly and Really Refreshing All-Over Mist and Seriously Soft Body Lotion and Really Refreshing Foaming Scrub and Clay Body Scrub, to name a few. Most of those were from the CocoaShea Collection (featuring Coco Butter and Shea Butter, obviously). Other products from the CocoaShea Collection included Richly Nourishing Lightweight Body Oil and Really Refreshing Aloe Gel Lotion and Richly Nourishing Whipped Body Butter and Incredibly Creamy Body Wash. The CocoaShea Collection was available in 3 delicious scents; Cucumber, and Honey, and Coconut. Each scent had it’s own packaging, depicting either Cucumber Slices for the Cucumber range, a Honeycomb for the Honey range, and Coconuts for the Coconut range. Naturally, I had to pick up a few things to try out from the CocoaShea Collection, especially with those names (over-saturated with adverbs). I mean, it’s pretty much how I describe most products (really refreshing, seriously soft, etc…). I also picked up a Clay Body Scrub (different collection) and yet another Scented Candle (because the previous 6 Scented Candles clearly weren’t enough). Luckily, there was a Buy 3 Get 3 Free Deal, going on at the time.
I’ve already tried everything out (back home), and can honestly say that I’m obsessed with every single item in this haul! They all performed pretty well (did what they claimed to do) and most of them smelled ridiculously good while doing it!
I rarely stop by the Phase I or Avenues I branch of Boots (wedged in wall-to-wall with yet another Starbucks). Normally, I’d visit the Phase II or Avenues II branch of Boots (because it’s one store over from Bath & Body Works which is my usual haunting ground). However, I’ve been hitting up pretty much every single branch of Boots that I can think of, in search of Batiste Dry Shampoo – A Hint of Colour Medium & Brunette (featured here) because it seems to have vanished, country-wide (which makes me very, very sad). It had the nicest scent out of all of them, and the powder was tinted (matching my hair perfectly). That stuff was my favorite! So, if anyone happens to know where I can find it locally, please do share. I’d be much obliged to ya! Anyways, I was at Boots and opposed to just the Buy Two Get One Free deal that they’re usually promoting (which forces your hand into purchasing more stuff), they actually had a legitimate Sale going on (25% off most items), so I stocked up on a few “necessities”.
Star anise and lime extracts make this crystalline and delicately foaming gel the favorite cleanser for normal to combination skin.
Holy Grail Status, right here! Funny thing is, I wasn’t expecting much when I purchased this Purifying Cleanser from Boots. I just wanted to try something (anything really) from the brand Lierac because I’ve never actually owned – let alone tried – anything from Lierac prior to this Purifying Cleanser. Initially, the vivid green packaging is what caught my eye and drew me in but the scent is what sold me (you’re not supposed to unscrew products in-store just to give them a sniff but what can I say? I’m a rebel)! I couldn’t believe how amazing it smelled! The scent was everything! It was fresh, zesty, and uplifting! I purchased the Lierac Purifying Cleanser, then and there, for KD 9/250 at Boots and I’ve been obsessed ever since!
