I received Formula X nail products from Influenster.
I took this picture from my Instagram. I already reviewed Formula X in TGIF (bottom right), Formula X Cleanse Xcel Nail Cleanser (bottom middle), Formula X Prime Xcel Base Coat (bottom middle), and Formula X Shine Xcel Top Coat (right). For this post, I will review the nail polish remover on the left.
Where to purchase: Sephora and online at sephora.com
Made in USA
Description from the package:
* Gives nails a clean slate in seconds.
* Removes creams, pearls and glitters.
* Easy one-step process.
Thoughts: When I received this product, it reminded me of this one product I tried long time ago Sally Hansen Kwik Off.
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's a slight smell while using the product. It doesn't smell like other nail polish remover. It's more floral than chemical. Secondly, it's a genius idea. You just put your five fingers in the holes and within seconds, the nail polish is gone. It's quick, fast, and great for modern individuals. Not only that, it's travel-friendly. You can take the container with you. I cannot see the container leak unless you are harsh. Third and from experience, I know the dirty polishes fall to the bottom of the container. When I used Sally Hansen Kwik Off, the sponge with white. I saw with usage the white sponge turn color. Formula X got smart and made the sponge black. People who have never used this product wouldn't know that the dirty polishes fall to the bottom. It's not the most sanitary-safe product but I don't think most people care. We tend to wash our hands after we move polishes or at least I do. Fourth, this is great for normal polishes that doesn't have glitter/sparkles. You can use this product for glitter/sparkly polishes but know that you need to dunk your fingers in longer than expected. Lastly and with that said, this isn't great for weak nails. When you remove your polishes with cotton ball/pad with remover, you have full control how long you apply the product on the nails. It's hard to tell when dipping your fingers into the container. Most, meaning me, tend to dip your fingers in and out until the polishes are gone. Since the fingers are dipped into the remover longer than it should be, the nails weaken with usage. Since I have weak nails to start off with, I noticed with usage it would get weaker to the point it starts breaking. For that reason, I used it as a regular remover. I cut the black sponge and removed the polish on my nails like a regular cotton pad.
