Texture & Scent:

This remover is basically liquid like the usual removers, so it's runny. I like how it doesn't dry up really quickly after you pour it out! This one does have the usual acetone-y scent plus somekinda floral which is quite strong, so do use this in a well ventilated place!


This remover comes in a bottle with a twist off cap, which is typical.

I like how small the hole is so that you can control the amount you dispense precisely!

Time Test:
This remover doesn't dry up quickly, so you can actually get more use out of it! True to its claim, it does remove polish in one swipe!!

Price & Availability:
This remover is priced at RM7.90, which i think is really affordable! It's available at all Silkygirl displayers at Watsons / Guardian / Your local supermarket!

As per the directions, just pour this unto a cotton pad, hold in place for a few seconds, and wipe off in one swift stroke.

My $0.02:

I received a sample of this one years ago, and after using it, i think my search for the best nail polish remover ends here! lol!! Ok i was exaggerating, but honestly, this one is probably one of the best i've used before!! :D

True to its claim, this one does remove polish in one stroke. Even most of the glitters are removed then:

As you can see, all the polish has been removed (including glitters!!), with the exception of the odd glitter here and there around the nail beds! My nails are 100% clean after the second swipe!

And although this one's labeled as EXTRA STRENGTH, it's really gentle and non drying for my nails!! You can't beat the price either (unless you're comparing this to the the crappy Watsons one that i reviewed earlier!)!!

All in all, this is one great product that i'll definitely repurchase cuz it's amazing!! :D

  1. Love your review! Sounds very good indeed. I always find glitters a bugger to get off. x

  2. gonna give this a try after finishing the sally hansen and etude house one i have
    thanks for the review

  3. wah this works so well? thanks for reviewing, i need cheaper and better nail polish remover!

  4. Its hard to find a good nail polish remover~ I usually just buy the drugstore brands but it takes a bit of wiping to remove the polish completely! Thanks for your review!

  5. I am currently using Orly and it works great and doesn't have a super strong smell, but this one sounds nice too! I've been reading great stuffs about the brand lately!

  6. I like SilkyGirl's nail polish remover too! There is the non-acetone one, and it's the cheapest non-acetone one I can find on the market so far. =))) Nice review.

  7. Vampiress: yeah they are!! But with this remover, things are alot easier! :D

  8. LyNn: you're most welcome!! How do you find the EH and Sally Hansen ones? :D

  9. Xin: yeah very well!! I'm surprised too! :D

  10. Stacieee: true!! I also usually just buy the drugstore ones since i really seldom put on polish! :D

  11. Nikki: i liked the Orly one too... it was my first nail polish remover!! hehehe!! :D

  12. Meng Xue: icic!! i guess you must be referring to the blue one cuz this one contains acetone? :D

  13. I am using this one too, think this is probably the best I have used as well :)
