I had got this nail polish remover from Equate thinking said “100% acetone free.” Later, I found it’s an acetone-based remover. Anyway, here’s the review of Equate Beauty 100% Acetone Nail Polish Remover.
Around $3 for 177 ml.
Equate Beauty Nail Polish Remover helps you to get your nails looking just how you like so you can step out with confidence. It’s made from 100-percent acetone to be as effective as the solutions used at professional salons. This natural nail polish remover removes gel polish, glitter polish, polish strips and it includes a built-in brush to get off artificial nails. This product also softens your cuticles and strengthens the actual nail to help protect your fingers. Application is easy, and you get results quickly so you can get on with your day. Easily removes gel nail polish, nail polish strips, artificial nails and glitter polish.
My Experience with Equate Beauty 100% Acetone Nail Polish Remover:
It comes in a big 177 ml plastic bottle, with no extra seal. It has a wide mouth, instead of the regular small hole. So when you tilt the bottle, a lot of product comes out. I am not a fan of the bulky packaging, as it is not travel friendly, and may cause product wastage. Product details are written on the bottle.
This runny liquid has a very strong chemical smell. In fact, if you have seen or used acetone in chemistry labs, this is exactly acetone, but the scent is very strong, pungent and bothersome.
Living up to the claims of a professional strength nail polish remover, this eradicates all traces of nail polishes. Regular nail enamel, with top and base coat gets removes in a couple of swipes. Gel and glitter polishes also are removed comparatively easily. Being acetone based, it does dry out nails and the surrounding areas, especially my cuticles feel stretchy and slightly tingly. I need to follow up with a cuticle cream or hand cream after using this. I am not a fan of this nail polish remover, so won’t repurchase.
Pros of Equate Beauty 100% Acetone Nail Polish Remover:
- Removes gel, glitter nail polishes.
Cons of Equate Beauty 100% Acetone Nail Polish Remover:
- Acetone based.
- Dries out cuticles.
