Essence Moisturizing Nail Polish Remover Review

Hello everyone,

I love painting my nails with different colors, but when it comes to removing nail polishes, I am very lazy and I am always on the lookout for something quick and easy. Essence has a huge variety of nail care products and I really like their nail polishes as well, so when I spotted this one, I thought of giving it a try.

My Experience with Essence Moisturizing Nail Polish Remover:

The remover comes in two different variants – moisturizing coconut and papaya (I have the coconut one).  The nail polish remover comes in a short, chubby, transparent, plastic bottle with a wide opening.  There is no stopper attached and due to the wide mouth, one has to be very careful, else there can be a lot of product wastage. Thankfully, the cap is tight and there is no spillage even when the bottle is tilted.  Unfortunately, it contains acetone as a main ingredient which I saw after purchasing.  They do have a non-acetone version and I will definitely try it next time.The nail polish remover is blue in color and has a strong acetone and coconut smell, which is not very pleasant, but it evaporates soon.

This remover took off my nail polish in a single stroke, without leaving my nails looking dry or dehydrated.  I used this remover consistently for two times and my nails and cuticles do not look or feel dry even though it contains acetone, it might be due to the moisturizing properties.  The previous nail polish remover I was using really used to nourish my nails, but this one doesn’t.

It efficiently removes shimmer and glitter nail polishes. I press the moist cotton pad for 10-15 seconds against my nail and all the nail polish comes off.  If some particles are left behind, they come off easily with another swipe.  It does not leave behind any layer or anything.  A little goes a long way, so the bottle should last long.  I am happy that it removes all kind of nail polishes easily, but I will definitely not repurchase it solely because it contains acetone and alcohol which can dry out nails with prolonged use.

Pros of Essence Moisturizing Nail Polish Remover:

  • Removes all kinds of nail polishes.
  • Bottle is travel friendly.
  • Nails do not feel dry.
  • Removes nail polishes quickly.
  • Reasonably priced and easily available.
  • Claims to contain moisturizing properties.

Cons of Essence Moisturizing Nail Polish Remover:

  • Wide mouth, has no stopper.
  • Contains alcohol and acetone.
  • Has a strong fragrance initially.

Would I Recommend Essence Moisturizing Coconut and Papaya Nail Polish Remover?

If you are okay with acetone in nail polish removers, then you can give it a try, but I will surely not repurchase this variant.

  1. They have some nice stuff, I swear by their quick dry drops and long lasting lip glosses but they are hard to find 😀

    1. by the way they also have a ultra version which is acetone free, u can try that but i guess its not available in India yet *haan ji*

    2. oh yeah I have those drops have heard so much abt them, had to give them a try and I don’t think those lip glosses are available in India yet 😀

    1. *thankyou* yeah them have some great products, but I suggest u go for the acetone free version and not this one 🙂
