essence Quick & Easy Sponge Nail Polish Remover, R44.95.
What they say: This practical, acetone-free “dip-in” nail polish remover with an integrated black sponge removes nail polish easily without the need for a cotton pad. What’s particularly cool about it is when removing polish from one nail, the other nails are not affected – this way, you can fix little mishaps in a flash!
What I say: I love these removers. My sister and I had these Concord ones years ago, and them Clicks discontinued them. I found them again a few years back, and bought 10 of them – just as well because I never saw them again.
I have, until now, been using the Bourjois one. IT works like a dream, but isn’t cheap – last time I bought it was R90, and that was in the middle of last year.
The essence one is just as good, and it’s less than half the price of the Bourjois one. All you need to do is pop you nail in, twist, and remove. It really, really is that quick and easy.
I would recommend that you get 3 – trust me. One for nude and light polish, one for dark polish and one for glitter polish, and the sponges do tend to get a bit clogged after a while. This will avoid staining and smudging.
ROUGE RATING: 5/5
