Beauty Bargain: Superdrug Nail Polish Remover Pot

Nail varnish remover being housed in a pot isn’t *the* most revolutionary thing to hit the beauty market, but it is one I’m very happy to have seen launched. Since the Bourjois one, then the Maybelline…we now have the Superdrug own brand one that comes in at a measly 97p – yes, that’s right, under £1.  But question is? Does it work…

So the answer is yes and no… sure it does work, but not quite as quick as some of the other brands and the other major downside is that because it’s an acetone forumla it is very drying on the nails and cuticles. This is sort of unavoidable, but something that can fairly easily be dealt with via a simple slick of cuticle oil.

The upsides of this have to be the price, and the fact it does work and is a mess-free and slightly more eco-friendly way (no cotton pads) to remove polish. Plus the price is a bargain. My advice would be go for it, it’s a bargain and whilst the Bourjois one is my favourite this is a bargain and I’d rather save a few pennies and buy another nail colour…

Available from Superdrug.

Bought by me.

    I think these are just such a good idea, especially for when one nail needs completely re-doing but you don’t want to accidentally wipe off the others!

      These style of pots are really handy! Always have a couple stashed away (tend to use one for normal polish and another for glitter ones)x

    I love the price of this but think I’ll stick to the Bourjois version if this isn’t any quicker, and I do try to avoid acetone varnish unless I’m wearing shellac! Great review though, really helpful x
