Sultan Center (Shuwaikh) Collective Haul

It was towards the end of summer…

I was starving and I was in a spend-y mood (deadly combination). Now, despite the huge haulage (as evident by the photo above), I was actually very, very, very disappointed with the Shuwaikh branch of The Sultan Center! There were bugs having a party on all the exposed fruits and veggies, fridge doors were left open (meaning the frozen food items like burger patties, seafood, and whatever else were just left to melt), every single tub of ice-cream I picked up was sticky (gross!), the seal was broken on a lot of food items, other food items (an entire row of Lay’s Forno Lemon & Black Pepper Baked Potato Chips in the smallest size) had expired months ago (yet still remained on the shelves), the whole place was a mess! Some areas (with the most traffic) were relatively alright but for the most part, the entire place looked like a scene from Mad Max… lol imagine how much larger this haul would’ve been if I hadn’t been grossed out.

Sultan Center Haul (mostly hair stuff)

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).

Sultan Center Personal Care Haul

I was only at Sultan Center (Salmiya Branch) to pick up yet another Cream Silk (my ride or die hair conditioner) but ended up getting everything else you see in the photo, as well.

Sultan Center Snacks Haulage

So yeah, I wasn’t joking when I said I primarily live on junk food. I’m always craving savory snacks or tart and sour candy. Normally, I find chocolate to be vile except when it’s “that time of the month” (aka Strawberry Season aka Shark Week) and even then, I’ll only have certain kinds. All of the above was purchased from Sultan Center (Souk Sharg) as per usual.

Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Gel Wash

Pure Active Fruit Energy Gel Wash is a foaming wash that helps target imperfections, leaving skin looking revitalised and reduces the appearance of visible pores.

Enriched with extracts of grapefruit, pomegranate and with vitamin C derivative selected for their purifying qualities. The invigorating fresh fragrance washes over your face with a fruity burst.

This foaming wash, with salicylic acid, purifies and tightens the feel of pores whilst helping to protect against the appearance of imperfections.

Cleansed and purified; your skin feels energised and more beautiful. Dermatologically tested on imperfection-prone skin.

Hauled it earlier (here) from Sultan Center but I’m pretty sure you can find this Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Gel Wash at most local cooperatives in the country. I couldn’t decided between this Gel Wash or the Gel Scrub Wash (that had little exfoliating beads suspended in the liquid). Normally, I’d opt for the latter but for some reason the packaging on the Gel Wash really appealed to me, which is why I got it.
