Hi All

Since i found this product at the Essence counter, I don’t think i will EVER be using cotton pads again !!! [well except for my toenails unfortunately]


2015 - 01 - Jan - Product Review - Essence - Sponge Nail Polish Remover



Essence - Sponge nail polish remover 1

WHAT THEY SAY:   The practical, acetone-free “dip-in” nail polish remover with an integrated black sponge removes nail polish easily without the need for a cotton pad. particularly cool: when removing polish from one nail, the other nails are not affected – this way, you can fix little mishaps in a flash! Thanks to the acetone-free formula is kind to nails and cuticles. also suitable for false nails

WHAT I SAY:   I’ve seen this product for a while now and after battling with my inner me i decided to give it a try, wow and was it a good decision. There is a sponge in the bottle already soaked in ACETONE FREE nail polish remover, so you put your nail inside, turn and VIOLA! Your nails are clean. I don’t think I’ve EVER gotten the nail polish off that quickly. The fact that its acetone free is an added bonus and to add the cherry on the top…. when you done your nails smell of PEACH…. not the ugly smell of nail polish remover. Definitely a winner in my books !!!

I do want to find out if there is a refill for the remover, as i don’t just want to use normal remover, i want a peach smelling hehe


  1. If you want you can get 2 separate bottles, one for light colours and one for dark colours.
  2. Don’t use this product for Glitter nail polish as it tends to tear the sponge

  1. I recently bought one of these called “prettyquik”, at £2.50 I didn’t think it would work but these things are the bomb. Same, I’ll never be going back to using cotton pads on my nails. Looking forward to the DIY Post!
