My first Empties post!

Yey I’ve finally managed to bin so many beauty products and that makes me incredibly happy, mostly because now I’ve got some room for new ones 😀 I love reading that kind of  empties posts and I thought it’s going to be fun writing one myself.

1. Face products:


  • Aveeno Moisturizing Cream – it was moisturizing indeed and took me ages to finish it. A drop goes a long way.

Do I recommend: Yes.

Will I buy again: Probably, but in the future. I want to try other brands now.


  • Avene Thermal Spring Water – it’s really nice and refreshing, I love it!

Do I recommend: Yes.

Will I buy again: Already have a new bottle and two minis 😀


  • Garnier Micellar Water – it’s the best drug store micellar water I have found so far.

Do I recommend: Yes.

Will I buy again: I still have another bottle to finish, but I’m open to try other brands.


2. Make Up Products:


  • Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder – last week I found this lil guy broken in my bag. It was everywhere! It was also forming a film on the surface, so I had to scratch it all the time.

Do I recommend: Eh, not really.

Will I buy again: I don’t think so.


  • Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser – it was too light to cover my under eye area, and creased badly all over my face.

Do I recommend: No and I don’t really get all the hype.

Will I buy again: Probably not.


  • Poundland Make Up Gallery Eye Liner – the brush was very thin and precise and I loved it very much. I think some of the ingredients has expired because the eyeliner started stinging to my eyes.

Do I recommend: Absolutely.

Will I buy again: I’m using another brand at the moment, but will definitely get this one again when I have the chance.


  • Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara – I didn’t like it at the beginning but it gets better and better every time I use it.

Do I recommend: Yes!

Will I buy again: Already got a fresh bottle.


3. Hair and Body Products:


  • Patisserie De Bain – Body Souffle – it had an amazing vanilla scent which lasted quite a long time.

Do I recommend: Yes!!!

Will I buy again: Yes, but in the future. There are so many new brands and scent that I’d like to try first!


  • Balea Professional Shampoo – I remember this one had a really beautiful and strong scent which lasted for days! I was getting compliments all the time!

Do I recommend: YES!

Will I buy this again: Yes, the moment I get into a DM store. I’m thinking about getting a new one from the same professional line, but another scent.



Most of the products were hits for me, with only a few exceptions. Now coming home, I’m excited to pick some of the local brands to try! Stay tuned!

    Hey Siyana, I tried to check out your latest post “Benefits of Going Self-hosted” from the .com reader and I can’t like it. I tried to visit it on your site, but it says it doesn’t exist.

    I see some of my favorites like Garnier Micellar Water, but you mention that it opened your eyes to different brands. Like what?

      There is this Canadian brand with cucumber micellar water which I really loved, but unfortunately can’t access anymore because I’m not in Canada 😂

    Oh I’m delighted to find someone else who isn’t in raptures over the maybelline concealer! I really don’t get the hype 🤷‍♀️
    Love the garnier micellar water though 💜
