If there's one job that I dislike the most when it comes to beauty, it's removing nail varnish. I really have little motivation and patience when it comes to taking nail varnish off, I want the job done as quickly and easily as possible. Therefore, when I heard about Bourjois Magic Nail Varnish Remover it sounded like a great alternative for me...
There's a few things that attracted me to this product aside from the many reviews I read about it. Firstly, the claim that it is instant removal and only takes one second per nail to remove the varnish and secondly, the idea that it's scented. I don't know about you, but I really despise the chemically smell of nail varnish remover, so to me, this was a big plus. It's a red fruit and vanilla fragrance. Once taking off the lid I expected the whole bottle to smell like the scent it claims, but it doesn't. Cue a lot of coughing as I inhale the chemically nail varnish smell. However, once you've put your fingers in the sponge and twisted to remove the varnish and it actually leaves a a quite nice, pleasant scent on them.
However, does it do what it sets out to do? It doesn't quite remove nail varnish in 1 second like it claims, but it does come off pretty quickly and easily. Like I've mentioned, the process is pretty simple as all you do is dip each finger into the sponge, twist and remove. It actually makes the process for removing nail varnish a little bit enjoyable. However, glitter or shimmer nail varnishes are slightly more difficult to remove. At £4.99 this is a little bit more money than I'd like to spend on a nail varnish remover especially when you compare the price to a bottle of liquid remover and cotton pads, but I can't argue that I much prefer it this way. Primark also has a dupe of Bourjois Magic Nail Varnish Remover which is a much cheaper alternative, which I will be looking into when this runs out!
