Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover

Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover: Boots/ Superdrug (£4.99)

The Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover is a pink pot that contains a nail polish remover soaked foam pad inside. The pad inside has a hole in the top to insert your finger. During removal the pad feels saturated with product, however it doesn't make your fingers feel wet at all. It's so easy to use because all you do is pop your finger in, twist and press and off comes all the nail polish. The nail polish remover has no nasty smell either, it leaves your fingers a fresh fruity vanilla scent which is actually really nice.  Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover actually also contains sweet almond oil which is great for the cuticles.

Although I really do think this is an excellent product it's not going to be one that I'm using regularly. I wear fake nails daily and find it's too harsh and weakens the nail too much to use on my falsies. The formula breaks down the plastic in the false nail so ends up being very weak and bendy. I normally use acetone free nail polish remover if I do remove the colour on my nails. The packaging actually says its acetone free, but there must be something in the product that weakens and disintegrates the plastic on false nails. Although I just had a thought, the Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover would be great to use to soak off nails rather than damage your natural nail by "pinging" them off. I shall try that next time I remove my nails!

I've also heard this is the perfect product for things like glitter polish, you don't need to spend ages scraping off glitter or using the foil method. A 30 second dip should remove most of the glitter with relative ease. I'd highly recommend this product if you wanted to use this on natural nails, not so much if you have fake ones! It will make changing nails so much easier, as well as less harsh on your fingers because of the unique formula of the remover. I'd highly recommend trying this out if you can get your hands on it! I read somewhere that shops are finding it hard to keep these in stocks as they are flying off the shelves!

  6. I am really enjoying this. I find it easy to use and its perfect if you make an error and want to start again as one dip and a quick twist will remove without faffing around with cotton pads and bottles and ruining the rest of your nails.

  7. This looks great and I'm really impressed with all of the brilliant reviews, but I think I'll stick with cotton wool and £1 nail varnish remover for now! I may invest in a pot of this for glitter nail polishes though as they are tiresome :-)

  9. I was wondering if you knew how long you could expect this product to last? I know it might sound silly but if it might dry up just from being unsealed even if it's rarely used? x

  17. seen so many reviews about this, but you're the first to mention the vanilla scent to it - i'm sold!

  18. I've been intrigued by this but I find that it's job is redundant. Because you can use this for your nails but would still need a normal bottle of nail varnish remover for your toes. So you may as well just do them the same way! Or at least that's what I'm telling myself to stop me buying it :P xo

  20. This seems amazing! It's so annoying when I wear glitter nail polish and i'm sat for ages trying to get it off!! Will definitely be picking this up when i'm next in boots! :)
