I had seen Fresh Therapies Nail Polish Remover on a few different blogs but never got round to trying it until recently I saw a review on Jen’s Green Skincare and I left a comment saying I really wanted to try it. Tracey from Vert PR then got into contact with me on Twitter and kindly offered to send me one to try out to review. A couple of days later the parcel arrived so I painted my nails ready to give it a go.
Fresh Therapies Natural Nail Polish Remover* is an award winning, natural nail polish remover and was recently in The Ultimate Natural Beauty Bible, with the highest mark for a nail polish remover, scoring 8.69 out of 10 which is incredible. It is not harmful to you or your nails at all as it is made from biodegradable food grade and plant-based ingredients that are non-toxic and non-carcinogenic. Whilst I’ve been using more natural/free-from nail polishes, I had still been using a mainstream remover (if I haven’t picked it all off) so my nails were still quite brittle and weak.
Fresh Therapies is free from artificial acetones and does not damage the natural oil within your nails, helping to remove polish naturally and keep your nails healthy. The product comes in a sleek glass jar and is completely translucent. It also doesn’t have the nasty, toxic, headache inducing scent that your mainstream remover has which is great; it smells slightly of lime and is really refreshing actually.
The best way I have found to use this, after reading a few reviews, is to pop some onto a cotton pad, press it into the nail and leave it for about 30 seconds to a minute before gently wiping it off. If you try and scrub scrub scrub it doesn’t really work and takes a long time and gets messy so I tend to just hold it over my nail and then pull the cotton pad over the nail and the polish will come with it.
The best thing I noticed about this remover is how shiny my nails looked afterwards. Usually, my fingers would look dry from all the acetone and alcohol but my nails looked healthy and felt stronger. Although its pretty expensive, it’s definitely worth the price tag in my opinion. I only used two cotton pads to remove all my nail varnish on both hands and used the smallest amount (3 tippy upside downs of the bottle?!) so it will definitely last me a few months. It also removed my very stubborn glitter nail polish from the Zoya Pixie collection which I usually have to pick off so it’s a definite thumbs up from me!
You can buy Fresh Therapies direct from their website here for £8.99 (50ml) and they also have a sample service where you can try it for just 99p – I would highly recommend giving it a go!
