Superdrug Nourishing Nail Polish Remover - A Product Rave

If you watch my You Tube channel you'll know that over the years I've mentioned a couple of nail polish removers in my monthly favourites videos. I have a lot of issues with nail polish removers but my biggest issue is the smell. Acetone free polish removers are much better and less drying for your nails but wow I think they smell so much worse than the ones with acetone in. I've tried a few removers and the best two I've found have been Leighton Denny Essential Polish Remover, and Butter London Powder Room Polish Remover. The reason why I like these products is that the horrid polish remover smell dies off quite quickly, leaving behind Lavender and Geranium type aroma, and a baby powder type smell respectively. Much more agreeable to my super ME sensitive nose, not so agreeable though is the price, both of these removers are in the £5+ bracket, not good when you remove polish about 3 times a week like I do. So in these tough financial times I decided ton look for a cheap alternative. It was tough, there are so many out there with just a horrid, overpowering chemical smell. Finally though I've found one that has just about achieved holy grail status

Superdrug Nourishing Nail Polish Remover, is an acetone free nail polish which contains both Aloe Vera extract and Vitamin E

Like all Superdrug own brand products, it's suitable for both vegetarians and vegans, it isn't tested on animals and it's BUAV approved.

Superdrug do 3 of their own brand liquid nail polish removers, but the orange / pink one is the one for me.

Now I don't recommend this for one minute but when you smell the polish remover, you do get the chemical hit, but as the initial chemical evaporates, you start to get an almost citrus smell that remains on the hands and nails, much more pleasing on the nose :)

How does it perform though, well I think it does the job - if you see the nails above I have a super bright base colour, and a few nails with some glitter top coats on - a pretty fierce challenge for any polish remover

Et Voila

I've used a few cotton pads but it does the job really well, and most importantly your nails don't go white like they can with some polish removers. I have to say I really rate this remover at just £1.39 for 250ml it's great value too. What nails polish remover do you use? Any questions please leave me a comment xx
