When we first started painting our nails, we relied on bottles of acetone to whisk away old polish. Nowadays, even the thought of inhaling smelly fumes is enough to give us a headache. That’s why we’re hooked on these biodegradable pads. Instead of chemicals, they’re soaked with a sweet-smelling citrus solution that clears away old polish and leaves our nails moisturized and conditioned.
This was supposed to be enough remover for all 10 nails. I used it to remove my toenail polish, and it didn't even get through two toes. I wouldn't recommend it.1
The towel did not work for more than two nails before it started falling apart like tissue.1
The package actually says to put away the cotton ball and nail polish remover bottle - but I had to take mine out because the one sample didn't make it through all 10 fingers.1
Tried to use on my toes and I had to scrub and scrubt to get the polish off. Seems easier and cheaper to stick with cotton balls and reg remover.1
I got this in my September Birchbox, so I decided to test it on two nails: one with a traditional polish and one with a matte polish. The wipe didn't take off any polish at all. I tried holding it onto my nail, I tried gentle rubbing, I tried scrubbing, and nothing worked. I don't know if my sample was just defective and dried out or what, but it simply did not work at all.1
By far the worst nail polish remover I've ever used.
I was excited to try the La Fresh remover, especially because I hate the smell of acetone. First, I opened up my (1) tiny foil packet (it confused me because the image for my box on the website showed 2 packets in my bag) and was immediately struck by the scent, which reminded me of Pledge furniture polish. A chemically orange smell. Not pleasant. After that I took out the towelette and again I felt skeptical because of its very small size, even though the packet claims that it can remove polish from all ten nails.
Turns out, the polish removed worked just about as well as Pledge would in cleaning off my nails. I gave La Fresh the ultimate test of pink nail polish and it failed spectacularly. The miniscule towelette barely got off the polish, left my hands sticky and greasy (guess that's the "conditioning"), just barely made it through five nails (hardly ten). I ended up getting pink nail polish stains all over my hands as I went because of the small size of the greasy, polish-soaked towelette.
After struggling with the sample I ended up trashing it and going back over with old fashioned acetone, which did a spectacularly better job. After trying the La Fresh towelettes I know that I won't consider abandoning the acetone anytime soon. A highly disappointing product.
I tried this sample when I was on the go traveling and threw it in my bag. When I tried it I wasn't a fan of the feel of the remover pad. It didn't work as well as the usual nail polish remover, and honestly I don't mind the acetone smell for a couple of minutes while removing polish.2
This hardly budged off my polish and made my fingers feel oily2
I don't recommend these nail polish remover wipes. The regular liquid remover is much faster and more effective. I had to use both of the wipes that were in my birchbox at one time to get all the nail polish off. They are way too expensive and not worth the time. Just stick to the regular polish remover.2
The scent was pleasant, but I felt that the pads couldn't take off more than a couple nails worth of polish before they started smearing color all over my fingers.2
