Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover | Latest in Beauty - Ultimate Summer Nails

Hello everyone!

This is the first review of the products I received in my most recent Latest in Beauty Collection box and it is the Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover.

I hate it when I'm about to repaint my nails and you see the tiny fibres of cotton wool stuck to your nail which therefore add imperfections to your nail polish and as a perfectionist when it comes to nails, it would be enough to get me to start all over again! So you can tell why I'd be so intrigued as to try this product... does it really work?

It says that it has a red fruit and vanilla fragrance but it smells just like any other standard nail varnish remover. This really doesn't bother me and I don't think it would anyone else.  Nail varnish remover is expected to smell like nail varnish remover so not a negative point really, just curious as to who at Bourjois thinks it smells like red fruits and vanilla! *After removing my nail polish, I always wash and moisturise my hands immediately following removal.  Therefore I totally missed that the bottle itself doesn't smell like red fruits and vanilla like I previously said but it is indeed the scent that is left lingering on your hands that does and boy does it smell nice! Major plus point now!*

As for the nourishing sweet almond oil, I can't say that it feels particularly nourishing as I've not known any nail varnish removers to be but if it has nourishing factors to it then who's to turn that down!

The beauty and selling point of this product is that cotton wool is not required.  Inside the bottle there is a large sponge with a hole in it.  Basically you put your finger in the hole and either twist your finger around the sponge or twist the bottle around your finger until your nail varnish has gone.

So far I have just used it to remove Essie nail polish (3 coats) which had Seche Vite on top. It claims to remove nail polish in 1 second which sounds far too good to be true and unfortunately in this instance it is. However it did only take around 8 seconds per nail which is still really fast compared to pouring nail varnish remover onto cotton wool pads etc.

This product is limiting in that you can only use it on your finger nails and not your toe nails (I have tried!) but this could easily be sorted if Bourjois widened the neck of the bottle and shortened it so you could use it on all nails.


It is great if you are going away for a few days or travelling anywhere because you don't have to take the whole bottle of nail varnish remover alongside the cotton wool pads.

Personally I love that I've finally gotten to try this product because I know that I will be regularly using this as I paint my finger nails more than my toes and it is a quick and easy, no mess solution to nail polish removal.

I got it in my Latest in Beauty - Ultimate Summer Nails box but it also retails in shops for around the £5 mark.  You can buy it from Boots for £4.99 by clicking here.

What does everyone else think of this product?  I'd be interested to see if anyone has tried it with glitter nail polish as I wear glitter nail polish quite frequently!

See you in the next post!

  11. I bought a cheaper version and I agree it's good for travelling but I'd rather use regular nail polish remover in the house if I have time. I use makeup remover pads usually so I don't have no bits off regular cotton wool buds! Hope this helps.

    1. Hi Harian,

      Thanks for your comment! Which brand did you buy the cheaper one from? I've never seen anything similar in shops before.

      I find that make up remover pads are just as bad as leaving fibres behind as cotton pads. I wouldn't dream of using cotton buds as they come apart so easily!

      I just love the convenience of picking up one product and removing all my nail polish instead of pouring stuff onto a cotton pad and then having to get a fresh one because you used the other one out and then you accidentally knock the nail polish remover over! Just a disaster waiting to happen! Haha!

  12. This is a good product for something easy to carry with you, especially on hols as you wouldn't want to take a big bottle of remover!
