Today I combined two separate products to get the best of both. A while back I received the Glov Water only Makeup removers. Now you know I love reusable makeup removers. In fact i have done my best to eliminate most of the single use products of this sort. I don’t really use disposable makeup wipes. I use makeup removing cloths, usually from Makeup Eraser or The Turkish Towel Company. I have replaced my cotton rounds with reusable ones, so when I received these heart shaped water only makeup removers from Glov I was thrilled to try them out.
They are, as you can see, fluffy hearts. For me they are too small for makeup removal, except for eye makeup, and then they tend to absorb a lot of the makeup remover into them. And the heart shape, as lovely as it is, makes them a bit awkward as it tends to increase the chance of them folding up on me.
However i wanted to try out the Mineral Fusion Nail Polish remover and I needed a cloth to do so. I figured why not pair these Glove hearts with the Mineral Fusion and see how they perform. Oddly enough they performed really well. The fluffiness that causes them to pull product into the interior was actually a benefit because i was twisting the cloth around the nail, the product was pushed out as needed onto the polish aiding in it’s removal.
To be honest, these cloths were fabulous for removing nail polish and then they went straight into the wash, coming out with nary a stain. I am really pleased I thought to use them and will be reaching for them with all of my nail polish removals in the future.
But what about the Mineral Fusion Nail Polish Remover?
This is a Non Drying and acetone free formula. Sometimes I can find non-drying formulas nail polish removers a bit greasy. It is almost as though they go too far in the opposite direction and as soon as the nail polish is removed I feel the need to wash my hands thoroughly so I don’t leave grease prints behind. Not so with this formula. It wasn’t drying in any way but it wasn’t greasy either. The polish came off easily and cleanly. In addition my nails did not feel stripped.
The nail polish remover has a slight orange note to it. It was pleasant to use and left my nails actually smelling a little bit orange-y. Actually there seems to be a hint of vanilla in it so my nails actually smell a bit like a cream-sicle. Which I find kind of amusing.
It also makes me want a cream-sicle.
Whether it was just the polish or a combination of the polish and makeup removing cloth, I don’t know. (If I had any regular cotton rounds here I would try the experiment with it). But because of the combination, I only needed one does of nail polish remover on the cloth to get the polish off of all of my nails. The current nail polish was a silvery purple. I suspect i might need a little bit more rubbing if I used a darker shade, but I don’t think it would require that much more. The silvery shade fairly flew off my nails, quickly and easily with this polish, proving it was both deliciously scented and effective. when looking at costs, using less product helps the bottle last longer as well.
While I am painting my nails less right now, concentrating more on keeping them healthy until the gardening ends in the fall, I will occasionally polish my nails, knowing that the polish won’t last. In the fall and winter, I end up polishing them once a week. No matter how good the polish, I can’t keep my nails non-chipped for more than a week. It just isn’t going to happen. So for me, getting a bottle of nail polish remover to last longer, really helps me out.
For me the Mineral Fusion Nail Polish remover was a winner. I also love the fact that it pairs well with the Glove Water Only makeup removers. I didn’t like them as makeup removers, but using them to remove nail polish will let me put them to good use and avoid having to buy cotton rounds to remove my nail polish. A win for me all around.
