I was running
low out of my Personal Care favorites and had to replenish my stock. By now, regular readers will know that my “go to” was Sultan Center (Souq Sharq). While there, I snatched up some random snackage, which turned out to be yummy! Unfortunately, I seem to have lost the receipt (meaning no prices will be listed).
I was running low on my favorite Hand Soap (Nivea Lemongrass & Oil) and my favorite Makeup Remover (Clean & Clear Deep Action Make-Up Remover Milk) and Shampoo (“Deep Cleansing” Shampoo, any would do).
Since I was in Salmiya anyway (after this nonsense), I decided to hit up the City Center Hypermarket. For some inexplicable reason, I thought they’d have more interesting Hair Care stuff than my usual haunts. As it turns out, they don’t. They had the exact same products found in every branch of Sultan Center, every branch of Carrefour and every local co-operative (because… Kuwait).
I did however manage to grab a handful (ok, fine, more than a handful) of
savory snacks Potato Chips! In my defense, they had several “new” flavors! More importantly, they were being sold individually, as opposed to pre-packaged threesomes (purchased previously, here), and they were available in all kinds of different sizes (everything from the mini 40g tub of Salt & Vinegar to the – according to Pringles – XXL 200g tube). Aside from the Pringle Salt & Vinegar, the rest were all duds :(
I also picked up a thing of Americana Mini Oregano Patee and Vimto Blue Raspberry (I’ve only ever found the other two flavors, at my local co-op, so this was new to me) and a bunch of personal care stuff; Nivea Soaps and Dove Deo and my beloved Clean & Clear Makeup Remover (reviewed here) and my equally beloved Cream Silk Conditioner (reviewed here). The total for this entire haulage was KD 13/210.
My first Sultan Center Haulage of the year! This was about 3 or 4 days before Valentine’s Day so I kinda’ went crazy over the Limited Edition stuff and also… I was hangry (which is appropriate, since I’m posting this during Ramadan, the time when people default to hangry)! Like I said in my previous Spotted at Sultan Center post (here), I hit up three different locations on my hunt for Herbal Tea. Even when I’d succeeded in averting my eyes and avoiding certain items at the first branch, by the time I hit up the final branch, my will power was non-existent (all tapped out) lol
I just happened to be in the vicinity (because I usually park my car in the underground parking lot) and figured I’d replenish my stock of Beef Jerky. One thing led to another and I ended up with… dis. To be fair, I can’t find Beef Jerky anywhere else, other than Carrefour, which is why I buy the stuff in bulk (Avenues isn’t exactly around the corner from my place). Also, our local co-op is always out of whichever coffee drink I happen to enjoy at the time, so that’s why I buy a pack or two at a time.
Like I said in my previous Spotted at Sultan Center post (here), I was hangry, hence the snackage. You know what? Looking at the haulage, it just occurred to me that I kinda’ do shop a lot at Sultan Center, so at this point, I might as well sign up for a Sultan Center Card (to benefit from whatever benefits that come with the Card). Knowing myself, the moment I sign up for the Sultan Center Card, I’d probably move on to Lulu Hypermarket or Carrefour or something, for good lawl Anywho, I picked up some Chips and Dip, some Fruits, a thing of of Caramel Popcorn, a tiny jar of Caviar and some Personal Care stuff (to qualify for the Scratch & Win Promo which I’ll be going over in detail, below).
In the past few years, Vaseline and Nivea have really impressed me with their offerings! The two products shown aren’t new, by any means, but they’ve pretty much become my favorites! They do their job (perform well) while smelling crazy good and looking stupid cute! What’s not to love?
Also at Soug Sharq and during that same visit, no less, (it’s slowly dawning on me that I might have a problem lawl) I stopped at Sultan Center for soaps, snacks and some more Hair Care stuff (I wasn’t joking about my hair being a mess).
Nothing lifts my spirits faster than creature comforts (stuff that smells nice or looks cool or both!). You’d take a look at these things and think, “not the most exciting of hauls, girl” and I’m totally with you. They look pretty blah but… BUT, keep reading and find out why you’re wrong! That Black (so cool!) Toothbrush is a Colgate® 360°® Charcoal Toothbrush (360! Wuuut! Charcoal! Wut!) and right next to it is a very possible Bath & Body Works Foaming Hand Soap dupe and next to that is the single-best-smelling-hand-soap of life (y’hear me? Life!) and finally an anti-perspirant (okay, fine, this last one might be boring for you guys, I’ll give ya’ that, but I can’t help getting excited over scented anti-perspirants and a possible favorite at that, granted I have yet to sniff the thing and all this is just pure speculation but a girl can
