Empties post #3

More empties from me! I managed to not wait until I had quite such a massive amount as last time I did a post like this, which I’m quite relieved about as that one was rather crazy! 
A nice selection of used up things here, though, some of which I Love, some which were good and some which were just ok. 
Starting with skincare type things we’ve got one of my favourite skin care items which is Soap and Glory’s ‘Clean Mary’ face wash. This was my last bottle of  Clean Mary and they don’t make it anymore so this was quite a sad empty for me… but it does mean that I’ve now finally broken open my first bottle of Peaches and Clean (also by S&G) and it’s safe to say I Love it! 
Secondly is a tube of Nivea soft face, hand and body moisturiser. I got this in a set that my sister got me for Christmas and it was a nice, basic, simple cream with no scent and nothing offensive about it at all. I used this on my neck and chest during my morning skincare routine and it did the job. I’m pretty sure these tubes are quite inexpensive so I may well buy another, but then I have lots of other creams to use up before hand.

I also finished up two packets of face wipes recently. The Kleenex ones I only used for cleaning swatches from my hands as they broke me out quite badly (Their eye make-up ones are quite handy though). The other pack is Boots’ vitamin e wipes and they were really cheap and easy to use when I wanted to take my make-up off and knew I was going to do a proper cleanse later. I don’t use them very often at all but some evenings walking to the bathroom is just too much pain or energy, so in step the wipes.

Couple of pretty self explanatory, boring ones here with the boots essentials nail polish remover and the nivea pearl deodorant. I re-purchased the boots nail polish as it’s cheap and works well and the deodorant is nice enough though I have something else at the moment.

The tub at the left of this picture hails back to my shop the stash post from months ago, I used the other two items from this Next chocolate range a while ago but only, more recently, finished up the dark chocolate souffle body cream which smelled rather nice. Nothing amazing but a nice gift set to have received.

I also finished a bottle of Hugo ‘Deep Red’ perfume. This is left over from when my nan and mum used to buy me perfumes for Christmas and Birthdays but I tend to pick my own now.

Lastly I used up a couple of cosmetics items. The Soap & Glory Thick and fast mascara did very well and I was able to use it a lot before it dried up/ran out. I haven’t opened it yet but I already have a second one of these from the gift set at Christmas.

The MUA extreme felt pen liner was a nice liner to use but I had it during the time when I wasn’t using liner as much as now that I’ve started again it’s dried out. I’ve got a variety of other liners at the moment but I may well end up re-purchasing this one in the future.

Hope you all enjoyed seeing what things I’ve used up and whether or not I liked them. I always like empties posts as you can be totally sure that someone’s really used something when they tell you about it in an empties post.

    Interesting post Laura. These days I am kind of veering towards Nivea products and incidentally I am using the same deo as yours .

      Mm they're good aren't they. I don't feel they'll ever be ground breaking and life changing but for something reliable and simple you can't seem to go wrong. I recently got their milk and honey lip balm and I Love it!
