Fresh Therapies Natural Nail Polish £8.99*
I wear gel extensions so I don't often wear nail polish however, with it now being sandal weather, I have been painting my toe nails. I hate nail polish remover. It smells awful and you really have to fumigate your room after using it. When I heard about this natural product I was very keen to give it a go. Could an all natural product really remove nail polish as effectively as the chemicals?
Firstly the packaging. The product is fairly small at 50ml but comes in a gorgeous tall and slim glass bottle within a green box. The box is printed with the cruelty free sign plus suitable for vegans. A lot of the ingredients are unheard of however these are vegetable extracts.
I applied a small amount of the product to a piece of kitchen roll. It suggests a cotton pad but I always like to use kitchen roll as you only need one piece to do all 10 nails. I had intended to use the first amount to remove polish from just one nail but a little of this stuff goes a long way! I ended up using it for 5 nails before dispensing another small amout for the other foot. With this being a natural product, I was expecting to have to scrub a little harder than usual. I was wrong. The colour came away easily and no scrubbing was required.
So the packaging is lovely, the ingredients are natural and it removes polish ...... but how does it smell?! Actually really nice! The product describes itself as lime scented. This does come through but really I would say this smells almost a little menthol and very fresh, not at all chemically. I am really impressed.
At £8.99 this is very pricey for nail varnish remover, which is usually only a couple of pounds. If you are conscious of ingredients and don't want to put chemicals on your skin then this is definitely worth the money. It's also a lovely packaged product which would be lovely added to a gift. I have a few friends who are nail polished obsessed so I intend to make them little hampers and add this for a birthday or Christmas gift.
