Birchbox Review: LA FRESH Eco Beauty Acetone-Free Nail Polish Remover

Source: Birchbox

You can always count on Birchbox for an introduction to products that inject newness and innovation into what seem like the most mundane beauty activities. LA FRESH Acetone-Free Nail Polish Remover is definitely one of those products. LA FRESH claims to take the act of removing your nail polish to the next level by removing the acetone, replacing it with a fresh citrus scent and moisturizing ingredients all in a portable wipe.

There isn't much to refute here. Once the pouch is opened, any user can tell that there is only a hint of chemical scent and the rest is overwhelmingly citrus. The pad is effective in taking off nail polish, I tried mine on nails coated in Deborah Lippmann and nails inc., but any nail polish without acetone will make slower work of removing glitter polish. The only thing that might be an issue is the size of the removing pad. I almost ran out of space/solution during one removal so users with more nail polish or thicker polish might have issues. This was quickly forgotten when, after the removal, I found my cuticles were looking a little better - more moisturized - than they were before I started.

A pack of 18 pads is $10 from the Birchbox store. Because of the price, these probably won't be my go-to remover when at home. But, their packaging makes them perfect for on-the-go and will smell significantly less offensive to others than typical nail polish remover. These are perfect for your emergency/travel nail kit!
