I’m always trying different nail polish removers, from Chanel right through to pure acetone, and despite any naysayers, there certainly is a difference from one to another. I rather like Sally Hansen Strengthening Polish Remover and pure acetone for dark colours that regular polish removers struggle to really clear away. But, I’ve just discovered Deborah Lippmann’s Stripper remover. It’s definitely a cut above the rest – mind you, I would expect it to be at £18 a bottle. It’s scented with lavender which doesn’t quite cover the usual polish remover smell but adds an interest factor in what has to be one of the most tedious beauty chores! What I love about it though is that a) it whips off any colour polish in an exceptional way, b) it leaves nails feeling almost buffed and incredibly moisturised – there is no dryness whatsoever. It’s a bit of revelation that a remover can behave in this way – it contains acetone – obviously, and then Aloe Vera Extract, Glycerin and Lavender essential oil plus an artificial fragrance. The Stripper is definitely worth a splash out – and look out for the Stripper To Go Finger Mitts (not on-line) – a finger size ‘sock’ soaked in Stripper in individually wrapped packs. One mitt really does deal with ten fingers – I’ve tried it. Find it at House of Fraser.

Ooh I’d love to try these. i’d particularly like to try them tonight when I need to remove a Lippman Glitter!
Deja vu. I’ve been wondering what I needed to get all the China Glaze off w/o losing a layer of cuticle in the process. Thanks so much!
I saw this on Saturday in HOF and wondered if it was any good – thanks for the review.
This is probably a good buy for hardcore nail polish junkies but for the occasional user it’s seems a little pricey.(Why does it sound like I’m talking about drugs…? lol)
Ive heard so many things about the stripper to go but I guess seeing really is believing. Seeing these ingriedients listed I may just add some glycerin and aloe into my nail polish remover!
Be sure to check the ingredients of any nail polish you wear. Some still contain chemicals that are toxic and can cause cancer such as formaldehyde.
its a safe nail polish remover Ami i can say best part i found that It is 100% biodegradable, non- toxic, and non-carcinogenic..
