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.
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.
These work well but you need a few of them to take polish off all of your nails. May get expensive to use all of the time.2
I tried these to take off my nail polish and while it started out okay, and definitely removed some of the product, the overall results weren't worth it. I would have needed several of the cloths in order to remove all my nail polish. I finally ended up just using my regular nail polish to finish the job.2
These nail polish wipes are convenient, but they aren't very effective. Using a cotton ball and a bottle of nail polish remover is easier, cheaper, and creates less waste (because the wipes are individually packaged).2
These pads removed some polish, but you would have to use multiple pads to get all 10 nails clean. It's not worth the time (or the expense!) when you can just swipe a cotton ball soaked in polish remover over your nails for a much better result. Frustrating to use.2
The concept is fantastic, but the execution is not. Many times I had to use more than one package to get all of the polish off. I liked the scent which was subtle, but the felt the pads were weak and didn't stand up to normal use.2
These are really great for travel or just to throw in your purse. They smell really nice too, but I think drugstore nail polish remover is cheaper and works just as well.2
I received two packages in my birch box this month. One I used to remove a nude color polish from my nails. It was successful but it took a long time to actually remove the polish. I then used the second one to attempt to remove a dark purple polish. This was a disaster. I barely got two nails done before I finally gave up and grabbed the cotton balls and bottle of remover. It didn't work at all, smeared the color rather than removing it.
It does smell wonderful however. I've just used better single use remover products.
This smells great, but I needed 2 pads to take off my nude colored nail polish. I buy a much cheaper drug store version that does the trick on both hands with only one pad.2
I love the idea of the nail polish remover to go- so great for travel. Even though this one smells amazing, one pouch/sheet barely got one side of my mani off. I prefer Lippmann's Striper To Go- despite the acetone, it works and works quickly with the same convenience for travel.2
