I bought a pot of 25 remover wipes from the Pound Shop and they were made by Derma v10, a brand which impresses me over its budget price. I like their hand cream and tanning mitt too.
These come in a little white screw top pot which is great for travel. Inside are 20 wipes which are quite oily (this is often the case with these pots of pre soaked remover). I find they smell a bit nicer than usual bottled remover and also they are acetone free which is better for your nails as too much exposure to acetone can ruin and dehydrate nails.
I use three to four of these wipes to completely remove the nail varnish from both hands. This is quite good, as I wear base coat, two colour coats and top coat usually. Sometimes I have to use more with darker shades to avoid staining the skin around as the oily wipe can move it around a but too much. They do smell quite nice like oranges and are not too thin to hold on to.
These are good for the money but I have to say I prefer a bottle of remover and a clean cotton pad. These oil based wipes work well in travel but for me are not a permanent solution.
I paid a pound for my pot of wipes, from the pound shop.
I would buy these again as they were handy and did the job, great for nights away and holidays.
The picture at the top is wrong obviously. The nail polish remover pads come in a small round tub that just pops open.
It has pictures of oranges and the Derma V10 logo. These pads are actetone free and so are good for your nails. They have a nice orange aroma but not too strong, this also masks that funny alcoholic smell that nail varnish remover products usually have.
The pads are very very thin, its quite hard to seperate them so make sure your only using the one otherwise they will get used up quickly!
The pads are white and very wet with the product so try and get the wetness on all your fingernails before it dries up in the fresh air.
They work well, I usually wear a pinky purple sort of colour and it comes straight off with a bit of movement on the nail but you dont need to apply much pressure and in about 5 seconds per nail its all off.
I havent tried it with a glitter nail polish and those can be very hard to remove so let me know how you get on with that.
The pads stay fresh as long as you keep the lid tightly closed. I think theres around 25 sheets in a tub so if you use one pad per hand thats 12 ish times you can use one tub. I put new polish on once a week so 3 months of use for around 40p from savers.
The other day I was in a Lloyds chemist waiting for a prescription and a bit bored of waiting I decided to mooch about when I spotted these nail polish remover pads on offer at 39p a tub and knowing I had some very old toe nail polish on my toes and that I needed to remove it before going out that night I picked up a couple of the small tubs as I felt that they were a bit of a bargain!
The tube is small, round and plastic and peach in colour and the lid section twists on and off with ease. On the top of the tub there are a couple of small pictures of oranges and we are told that they are Dermo V10 'New Formula' Nail Polish Remover Pads and that they are Acetone Free and that within the tub there are 25 sheets and that they contain an orange fragrance. On the bottom of the tub we are told how to use them, cautions are given as are the ingredients stated and contact details for Healthpoint LTD (the manufacturer of the product are listed. Its nice enough, simple packaging this and is easy to open and close etc.
Well of course just in case your still wondering for any reason these are nail polish remover pads although calling them a pad is a weird description for me! These are round and are a very thin like a lint material with a little texture to them but in the main they are smooth. They smell really pleasant and of oranges in a really natural way and are wet to the touch. All you do is simply press and wipe with these, well thats what we are told to do with them however I really struggle to use these to be perfectly honest. They are wet so drip everywhere and the nail polish remover is greasy. You have to really rub nail polish off with these and I tend to need about 4-5 wipes per 5 nails and it really is tricky and time consuming to use them. I can't say that they don't work as though as they do to be fair to them! However you have to make sure the greasy residue is off the nails before applying nail polish because its so greasy it really makes nail polish go on streaky!
All in all these are ok to use if your desperate otherwise they feel bad quality and because they are greasy are hard to use! Not for me however they do smell nice!
Available in all sorts of discount stores and chemists and expect to pay around a pound for a tub containing 25 of them!
