Goal: To find a natural or non-toxic nail polish remover that actually works.
Brand I Tried: Zoya
- Price: $9.99 Plus S/H.
- Size: 8 oz. in Big Flipper Bottle. Also have other sizes available.
- Uses: Nail Polish Remover, Nail Prep Cleaner and Nail Conditioner – somewhat of a multi-use product.
- Amount Of Product Used For It To Be Effective: 2-3 Pumps worked on about 3-4 nails of Revlon (regular) nail polish and Zoya nail polish.
- First Impression: Still smelled like acetone slightly, but not as harsh as regular nail polish remover.
- Visual Attractiveness / Packaging: I like the twist lock and the big flipper top :)
- Texture: Purple liquid, gentle and surprisingly non-drying!
- Scent: Don’t sniff it! :) Lavender., but still resembles the smell of a chemical nail polish remover with a hint of acetone. Not nearly as toxic smelling as other removers I’ve used before.
- Used It: 4 times so far… on fingers and toes :)
- Easy To Find And Where? Zoya.com.
- Aquired: Purchased with my own money.
- Customer Service: I requested the ingredients for both the nail polish (which I will also review…) and the Remove+ Plus. They were very helpful, but said that they didn’t post the ingredients on their website because they advertised that their products were non-toxic. Not exactly sure what that means though… Hmmm… hope they’re not trying to hide anything! Shady!
- Sample, Trial, Travel Sizes?: 2 oz. size is the smallest, but the shipping probably isn’t worth it unless you are purchasing other items.
- EWG’s Skin Deep – Cosmetic Safety Database Rating: 4.
- Product This Will Be Replacing: Sally Hansen Salon Formula Polish Remover for Artificial & Senstive Nails.
- EWG’s Skin Deep – Cosmetic Safety Database Rating for Sally Hansen Salon Formula Polish Remover For Artificial & Sensitive Nails: 7.
- Verdict: This works well, so I may buy it again – but not a fan of the fact that it contains FD+C color. It is a little pricey with the cost of shipping… wish I could just pick it up at the store… ugh! Although this product still contains the chemicals to remove the nail polish- it doesn’t contain the fumes, which is at least a step in the right direction. I will probably compare it to a few other natural nail polish removers since this was my first (less) non-toxic one. It removed everything pretty fast (including reds which I heart the most), wasn’t at all drying like normal nail polish remover- and used it as directed (First to remove old polish, and then again before you apply base coat which is actually Step 2 in their Color Lock System).
