This is my second year I bought the Lucky Bag 2017 from Beautylish.

Product Review: RGB Nail Color Remover

Where to purchase: online at rgbcosmetics.com
Price: $28 for 20 pads, 1.87 in x 2.75 in/ 4.7 cm x 69 cm each pad

Made in USA

Description from the website: RGB's Nail Color Remover is not an Acetone or Acetate Based Remover - both types of formulas are known to contain some of the harshest chemicals found in cosmetics today. Instead, RGB replaces these conventional formulas with a soy-based Nail Color Remover that leaves nails the opposite of what one's grown accustomed to after taking off color; nourished and healthy.

What you see - and smell - is what you get, no artificial fragrances or dyes added. The non-hazardous, low-odor, and non-flammable formula is safe for personal and salon use. Made from a combination of US grown soybean products and safe and sustainable solvents, RGB Nail Color Remove Pad are actually a natural treatment for your cuticle beds.

RGB Nail Color Remove Pads are pre-moistened, 100% cotton perforated pads, and removes nail color from all ten nails with just one pad.
Ingredients:
Thoughts: I'm constantly painting my nails in weekly basis except this week. I got sick, and just sitting there and painting was not something I was capable of doing. So when I received my Lucky Bag in early January 2017, I was intrigued with the nail polish remover pad.
Here's a closer look at the packaging of the nail polish remover pad.
Here's a closer look at the pad. It comes folded and the size is slightly bigger than a cotton pad.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no noticeable scent while applying. I just sniffed the product and there's a semi-strong plant scent. I'm not too sure if it's supposed to be soy but it's not a pleasurable scent or at least to my nose. It smells oily/waxy depending on how you see it. Secondly, I actually like the packaging. It's simple and comes in a small paper box. It feels good to know the box is recyclable. The packaging for the pads aren't that I know of. It's very oily inside. With that said, the packaging for the pad is small, sturdy, and very travel-friendly. It's so small you can just throw the package in your bag or even in your pocket. It will not rip whatsoever. It's that sturdy. It's convenient to remove your polishes where ever you are. Third, the pad reminds me of moist pads in the market except drier in consistency. Initially, it feels like a normal cotton pad with slight moistness. With each usage, it gets oilier and oilier. It makes sense why they recommend you wash your hands after you remove the nail polish. Your hands and fingers will feel oily. With that said, it really doesn't feel like acetone nail polish removers. There's no cooling sensation, not the tinging but a fresh cool feel, that comes with acetone removers. It feels dry. They recommend you apply the pad on your finger for a minute and then remove it. I hate to admit this but I'm so impatient. Basically, I put one pad on one finger and wait a minute to remove that. Then I repeat with the next finger and so on. It's time consuming unless you use ten pads on each finger for a minute and remove it. Then that's a waste since there's only twenty pads in each box. That's only two usage and for $28, that's not cheap. So I have been using one to two pads each usage. It honestly depends on the thickness of the nail polish. Most nail polishes you can remove with one pad. If you have the time, patience, and so on, this might be for you. With that said and fourth, it doesn't remove as quickly as acetone removers. It takes some time and a lot of rubbing for the polish to come off. Basically, you're removing the polish with oil more than anything else or at least that's how it feels like. If you want a gentle remover, this is a great one for you. Not only that, it hydrates the nails and skin. When it comes to glitter polishes, I cannot say. I haven't tried it on glitter. Lastly, there are pros and cons to this product. It's hard for me to say if this is great or not. It all depends on the individual. Personally, I just don't have the time to sit there rubbing and trying to remove the polish.

Pros:
* No noticeable scent while applying.
* Simple, small, sturdy packaging.
* Travel-friendly.
* Feels like a cotton pad with slight moistness.
* Acetone-free.
* Gentle; not harsh on the nails and skin.
* Only need one pad for each usage.
* Hydrates the nails and skin.
* No artificial dyes or fragrance.
* Vegan.
* Cruelty-free.

Cons:
* Very oily.
* Feels dry.
* Time consuming; one minute on each finger before removing.
* A lot of rubbing involved.

Would repurchase: Doubt it.
