Bath and Body Works Body Lotion Haul

They switched out the previous online promo on full size Showers Gels (dis) for a newer promo on full size Body Lotions. Plus, the 5 for KD 3 on PocketBacs was still ongoing.

I really didn’t want to risk any of them going out of stock and having to wait until next Winter to get my hands on Vanilla Bean Noel and Hot Cocoa & Cream and possibly never seeing Bali Black Coconut Sands or Bahamas Pink Passionfruit & Banana Flower again (who knew if they were going to re-release them again, next Summer).

So, 3 days after my previous online order (here), I placed another online order with Bath&Body Works. It was too good of a deal to pass up!

Online Promo:
Body Lotions were reduced from KD 5/500 to KD 2/500 each
PocketBacs were 5 for KD 3

The total for this online order was KD 13

I placed my order on November 19 and it arrived safely the next day (free shipping over KD 9)

As you can see, everything arrived well packaged (including the pages and pages of receipt/invoice).

Currently, for “Black Friday” they’ve got 40% Off Sitewide and free shipping, meaning Body Lotions were reduced from KD 5/500 to KD 3/300.

Once again, I was glad I didn’t wait until “Black Friday” and got the Body Lotions for 50% Off instead of 40% Off.

Bath and Body Works Shower Gel Haul

The new Fall Traditions 2019 Collection popped up online and as time went on, they added a “sneak peak” of the Holiday 2018 Collection (which was being marketed as “new” even though it was last year’s collection).

I’ve spoken about the local Bath&Body Works tricking customers into believing they were purchasing the latest Holiday Collection except it was always already 12 months old, several times now.

That said, beggars can’t be choosers and when they had an online deal on Shower Gels, it was just too good to pass up. So, I quickly placed my order and picked up some of the stuff I’d been lusting after (sadly, Hot Cocoa & Cream Shower Gel was excluded from the promo and was going for full price… sneaky, sneaky).

Online Promo:
Shower Gels were reduced from KD 5/500 to KD 1/750 each
PocketBacs were 5 for KD 3

The total for this online order was KD 10

I placed my order on November 16 and it arrived safely the next day (free shipping over KD 9)

Currently, for “Black Friday” they’ve got 40% Off Sitewide and free shipping, meaning Shower Gels were reduced from KD 5/500 to KD 3/300.

So… I’m pretty much patting myself on the back for not waiting and taking advantage of the previous deal and purchasing these Shower Gels for KD 1/750 a pop (she said ever so smugly)!

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Gold Couture Eau de Parfum

Also at Marina Mall, I popped by VaVaVoom.

I was actually looking for an Oscar De La Renta fragrance but couldn’t seem to find the brand (not at the Autumn Perfumes Exhibition and not at Harvey Nichols, not even at Sephora). I did however stumble upon the Juicy Couture counter which I didn’t even know existed there before now (I’ve been meaning to give Viva La Juicy Gold Couture a sniff since forever).

The lovely Filipina sales assistant was so helpful and accommodating that I ended up purchasing Viva La Juicy Gold Couture Eau de Parfum on the spot! She even tossed in a 3pc Holiday Candle Gift Set (red box) and filled up an 8mL Atomizer Spray for me (with a perfume of my choosing) and gave me several fragrance samples to boot!

Bath and Body Works Fall Traditions Deep Cleansing Hand Soap Haul

I was at Marina Mall, to check out a certain fragrance at Jo Malone (which ended up being a disappointment) among other things, when I decided to hit up Bath & Body Works just to browse around.

As luck would have it, I spotted several Deep Cleansing Hand Soaps (not one, not two, not three, but four different scents, granted one was Sweater Weather, ugh)! All of them were from the Fall Traditions 2019 Collection (as evident by the delightfully autumnal names and ugly cartoon-y packaging).

Techie Tuesday: Double Dare OMG! Princess Rabbit Pink Mini Beauty Fan


Double Dare OMG! Princess Rabbit Pink Mini Beauty Fan

The Autumn Perfumes Exhibition took place at Mishref Fair Grounds (Halls 5,6,7,8) during October 24 and was meant to end on November 6, but was extended to November 9 (because… weekend).

I’ve spotted the OMG! range from the brand Double Dare already at quite a few places around Kuwait, including the Mishref Co-Op (pics here) and I wanna’ say Debenhams and of course, the Perfume Exhibition (pics here, all the way at the bottom).

The Perfume Exhibition floor lay-out doesn’t seem to change all that much (the same brands always have their booths set up in the same spot) and as I was heading towards one of the exits to get to my car in the parking area, I passed by the Double Dare counter (located by the exit/entrance).

I finally caved and purchased the adorable OMG! Princess Rabbit Pink Mini Beauty Fan!

Makeup Revolution Brush Sets Haul

The Autumn Perfumes Exhibition took place at Mishref Fair Grounds (Halls 5,6,7,8) during October 24 and was meant to end on November 6, but was extended to November 9 (because… weekend).

I hit up the Makeup Revolution counter, hoping to purchase the newer Conceal & Hydrate Concealer, but they only had the older Conceal & Define Concealer. They didn’t have any of the newer Tasty Eyeshadow Palettes either.

Just as I was about to leave, I clocked some cute rose gold-y Makeup Brush Sets and was told that they were on sale hence dis.
