Wilko Nail Polish Remover
Advantages: Its cheap and does the job eventually, also smell isn't as strong as others and its pierced/
Disadvantages: Takes a lot of scrubbing to remove nail polish and isn't conditioning.
I ran out of nail polish remover a few months ago and living on an extremely tight budget I had to go for the lowest priced nail polish remover I could find..this is where Wilkinson's own brand came in!
My other half picked this up for me, he cant remember the price! And they dont seem to have it on their website but I can promise you its not over a pound, so its quite nicely priced for 250ml of it.
I like the appearance, its even a lot nicer than the more expensive one I was using before! Even though you get 250ml, it still manages to look quite petite! It has a tiny black screw off lid and the bottle is clear and tinted a very light pink with a light pinky/purple liquid inside!
It is also decorated quite nicely, light shades of pink and white telling me the information I need to know, instructions and ingredients ect..are printed on the back in black writing.
I couldn't knock the appearance for the price, its a lot prettier than other ones which are more expensive.
-USE OF PRODUCT-
Unlike most other nail polishes, the lid on this is a lot better, you know the hole bit where it comes out? ( sorry, only way I can explain it! ) instead after you screw off the lid its more of a pierced top so the liquid doesn't come out to quickly which makes it great if your quite clumsy and accident prone like myself!
To use, simply put onto a piece of cotton ball or pad and rub the nail polish from your hand, it says for best results to use a fresh piece of cotton each time.
I dont find the smell of this is to overwhelming, sometimes my eyes water and my other half has to leave the room because its so strong but this is a lot less stronger than usual ones..dont get me wrong, it still has a horrible chemical smell buts its not too strong!
As far as removing nail polish goes I wouldn't say this is great, its okay! It takes a good bit of rubbing and scrubbing to remove nail polish from your fingers but you get there eventually.
It also doesn't benefit my nails in any way like other brands tend to, I wouldn't say its nice for conditioning your nails!
For the price you cant complain I guess, it does do what it says on the tin and beggars cant be choosers! It also seems to have lasted me a lot longer than other ones and I think this is because of the pierced bottle making a lot less product come out.
If I had the money, I definitely wouldn't purchase this again as its a lot of effort to remove your nail polish, but whilst on a budget its okay.
Summary: Wouldn't buy unless on a budget.
