Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover

Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover

I quite like doing these worth the hype posts and when I received this little bright pink wonder bottle in one of my Selfridge's Lucky Bags (see review here!) I thought it would be the perfect opportunity for me to test it out and see whether it really is as amazing as everyone claims. So, what exactly does the Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover claim to do?


The Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover, which retails for £4.99 in Boots, claims to remove your nail polish without the need for cotton wool, in just 1 second! It removes your nail polish and leaves a nourishing sweet almond oil on your nail afterwards. But does it really take one second? Quite frankly, no.

Now, don't get me wrong. I like this product. It certainly saves me on cotton pads and it is a lot less messy than using cotton pads and a bottle of nail polish remover. But it certainly doesn't remove my polish in 1 second. Although that said I suppose anyone with a sensible mind would know the 1 second part was just a gimmick to sell this product. Without glitter polish on, this will take about 30-60 seconds on each nail to remove my polish, depending on how many coats I have on. With glitter polish on we're looking at a good 2-3 minutes per nail. That is a lot of time! And definitely longer than 1 second! It's OK if you're not in a rush and can do it whilst not having to do much else at the same time, but otherwise I don't think this is the miracle product everyone claims it is. I'm not sure whether I will repurchase, we'll see. If you have tried this before, let me know what you think to it!
