It seems like every beauty blogger in the land has blogged about the infamous Bourjois 1 seconde nail varnish remover and fallen in love with it. Lets just say that I've tried it, I understand why, but I also know I wouldn't ever pay £4.99 for a tub of nail varnish remover, no matter how well the formula works; it just doesn't feel like a good use of my money.
So the other day when I was browsing the isles of Home Bargains and came across Fast and Fruity nail varnish remover from Easy Nails for just 85p I thought I'd give that a go instead.
Let me say that I really was amazed how well this worked for so little money. I would actually say that it worked just as well as the Bourjois offering, even on glitter polish which was pleasing. The product doesn't claim to have as many fab extras, such as containing almond oil that is good for your nails but for 85p I can't fault it.
Anyways, the smell of the product is one of my favourite things about it. Whilst the pot claims that it is peach scented I find that once the initial polish remover scent has subsided, you're left with a really nice vanilla smell which is soft and in a weird way, quite comforting. You don't end up with the whole house smelling of chemicals and there's no headache brought on by needing so much product at a time.
If you're looking for a well priced, well working nail varnish remover that's easy to carry around with you and doesn't stink the house out then this is definitely a product to try and in my eyes, makes far more financial sense.
What's your opinion of the Bourjois remover? Would you try a cheaper alternative instead?
