Superdrug Nourishing Nail Polish Remover - Acetone Free

Traditionally most nail polish removers used acetone as the main ingredient in their products. While acetone is very good at removing nail polish, it has its own drawbacks - especially if you have dry or brittle nails. I wear nail polish on a daily basis and change the colours every week. I had begun to notice that frequent use of normal nail polish left my nails drier and they were starting to go brittle. That's when I did some reading and having found out about the ill-effects of acetone on nails, I decided to switch to acetone-free nail polish removers.

And that's why I picked up the Superdrug Nourishing Nail Polish Remover which not only was acetone free but also had added Aloe Vera and Vitamin E. I have been using this for a few months now and have noticed that my nails are no longer as dry as they used to be. The remover does a good job at removing the nail colours; the only point worth mentioning is that I need to rub a little harder than I would do with a normal acetone based remover. However, I am not complaining at all as it has improved the condition of my nails. I still change colours every week and my nails are in better shape now.

To sum it up:
Acetone free nail polish removers:
- are gentler than traditional removers
- require a little more effort to remove the colours
- do not dry your nails as much as traditional removers
- are good if you have dry and brittle nails
- are the best option if you change your nail colours frequently

Sometimes, budget products work as well as the high-end ones. There is no harm in trying them out, if that will help save some money ;-) I have been using this bottle for quite some time and looks like it is gonna last for a long time.

Price: £1.39 for 250ml
Availability: Superdrug

I have now totally moved on to Acetone free nail polish removers. How about you? What kind of nail polish removers do you use?
