Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover Review

29 comments
Hey Lovelies!
How are you? Hope you're having a good start to the week!
I'm off work this week as I had some holidays left to take before the end of March. I was hoping we'd have some sunshine so I could get some decent pictures for the blog but so far it's only rained!
Today's post is going to be a review product I recently hauled
If you read my last post you'll know that up until recently I was getting my nails done at salons so I didn't really have a chance to try this before When I took my acrylics off a few weeks ago it was at the top of my shopping list!
This is a product that's very popular amongst beauty bloggers. Last year it even won an Elle Beauty Award for Best Nail Product! 
Now that I've had a chance to use this a few times I can let you know my thoughts.
This product is so easy to use:
Step 1. 
Unscrew lid (D'oh) and place finger in pot (The nail polish I'm wearing here is Where's my Chauffeur by Essie). Inside the pot there's a sponge which is soaked in acetone free nail polish remover. 
Step 2.
Swirl your finger about in the pot for approx. 20 seconds.


Step 3.
Remove finger from pot and hey presto all the nail varnish is removed! Repeat process for all 10 digits.

My thoughts:
As you can see, the Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover removes nail polish perfectly! However the claim that it removes nail polish in 1 second is slightly exaggerated. It takes me about 20 seconds to get the polish off each nail (which is still a more than reasonable amount of time). 
I also disagree with the claim that this has a red fruit and vanilla fragrance. The first thing I noticed when I opened the pot is how strongly it stank of acetone. Which is a bit weird as the product doesn't contain any acetone! Either way, this stuff stinks!
When I remove my finger from the pot it's slightly oily, which must be the almond oil in the product. That's quite nice though as it means your nails and cuticles are moisturised. I know other nail polish removers can be very drying on the skin and nails. That's definitely not the case with the Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover
Overall I'm really impressed with this! I like how easy it is to use and that you don't need to use cotton wool with it. I also have a tendency to accidentally spill things, but if you knock this over you won't waste any of the product (or ruin anything!) as all the liquid is absorbed in the sponge. 
I bought this from Boots for £4.99. Another fab product at a bargain price and I will definitely be repurchasing this once I've used it all up!

  1. This almost sounds like a dream! Removing nail polish so easily, that's what we've been needing! Too bad it stinks like acetone, even though they claim not to use acetone. But the oil that nourishes the nails makes up to it! I might give this a look, even though I think it's quite expensive. I buy my acetone free nail polish remover for €0,89 which is supee cheap. But this is perfect to take with you when you have to be somewhere but dont have the time to remove your nail polish, or when you go on a holiday!
    The review is really clear, thank you!

  6. This is my fave nail polish, ever. I can smell the red fruits now straight away but once the fingers been dipped in and removed from the pot you can smells better then most polish removers. I love it and as a whole i would purchase again the only problem is the price considering i usually spend around £2 on polish remover. I have seen a alternative in boots thats a touch less i think.

    1. It's my fave one too! I think it's brilliant. I know what you mean its more expensive than other nail polish removers but there's always Boots advantage points and 3 for 2 offers to justify it ;) xxx

  8. I have this and I love it!
    I find it works well with glitter nail varnishes which are normally such a pain to remove!
