So a few weeks ago I picked up this Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover.
I was slightly outraged by the price for 75ml of product but caved as so many people where praising it.
So as soon as I got it home I tried it out and used it to take off my China Glaze For Audrey and took photos for a future review.
I was amazed, it all came off so quickly and what I liked also was the smell it left on my fingers afterwards.
It's a lovely sweet/fruity scent.
So for weeks I used it everyday and even included it in my May's Favourites!
Then this week I noticed that when using it, I was left with a yucky dark mess on my fingers. It was obviously the excess from all the old nail polish that had been soaking into the sponge.
A few days ago I bought Nails Inc's Edinburgh Gate which is a lovely full coverage glitter polish, the day after using it, I used the nail polish remover and something awful happened!
I stuck my nails in, pulled them out and my hands where a mess, I had glitter everywhere!
It took me ages to wash all that glitter off and after some time I decided to try it again but had the same outcome.
Maybe it was because I was using it everyday sometimes more than once, If your only using it once every five - seven days then this would probably be great for you.
"Yucky stuff that came out of the sponge and bottle :-("
Of course, being me I decided that I would simply wash the sponge and bottle and re-use it by pouring another type of nail polish remover into it.
What really got me in the end was when I tried cleaning the sponge all this disgusting "purple" liquid came out . It looked like the water cup you used to use in art class when you paint in primary school. I was sticking my fingers in that!!!
It just didn't seem hygienic and was just a hassle in the end.
So It went in the bin.
Great if you paint your nails once a week and don't mind spending the cash but just not worth it if you love painting your nails frequently and don't want to be buying another bottle every 3 - 4 weeks.
I think I'm going to be sticking to my cotton pads and Superdrug's own brand of nail polish remover.
Depressing, I know. After so many people loved it :-(
So have you tried this product? Love it? Hate it?
