I've been stalking the Maybelline displays at Priceline for quite some time now, keeping my eye out for their Express Remover. Anyway, I finally found it in a store last week so, of course, I had to pick one up. A mess free nail polish remover? I'll drink to that!
So far I am really liking this fuss free way to remove nail polish and today I'm here to tell you why.
The Maybelline Express Remover is a potted nail polish remover. As you can see from the photos above, the pot contains a piece of sponge that's been soaked in the remover solution. The sponge has a circle cut out in the middle that's the perfect size for a finger.
The Maybelline Express Remover is so mess and fuss free. There's no need for cotton pads, or open bottles of nail polish remover. It's all in one place. I've heard that there's quite a lot of fluid in the pot so it can be quite messy if knocked over, but I'm yet to knock it over so I don't plan on seeing if that's correct did I just jinx myself?). The formula is also acetone free which I like, though it may not been your thing if you prefer a remover with acetone.
I have found Maybelline's Express Remover to be extremely effective at removing nail polish. To use, I place a finger in the pot, leave for 1-2 seconds and then agitate slightly. For a normal creme or shimmer polish, this is more than enough to remove all polish on the finger. For glitter polish, however, a little more attention needs to be paid. It's still very easy, it just takes a little more time which, if we're honest, is the same regardless of what method you use to remove it.
I haven't been using the Maybelline Express Remover long enough to see how long it last for, though I expect it to be quite a while. Given that I go through cotton pads like nobody's business, I also think it might be cheaper for me in the long run. We'll see, won't we?
If you like fuss free nail polish remover and this the Maybelline Express Remover is for you, it retails for $9.95 from Priceline stores. I've also seen it on sale a number of times since its Australian release.
