Review: Lovely ME:EX Nail Polish Remover

To be totally honest, this was a impulse buy. I thought the bottle is cute and it has a small opening for dispensing the remover. The pink smells like strawberry and the purple smells like lavender. When we asked how much they were, the sales girl said "two dollars." I thought, oh! That's not bad. But now that I am thinking about it at home, 2 dollars for a tiny bottle of polish remover is pretty expensive....

The solution is mild, the smell is minimal. It's comparable to Zoya's remove+ but not as strong. It removed glitter polish like a champ.  The Lovely ME:EX remover does have acetone in it but didn't dry out my skin. $2 for a 100 ml bottle is pretty steep compared to other brands but I was on vacation! Even if I want to get more, I wouldn't be able to. I think I will reserve these for glitter polishes and use my Beauty Secrets polish remover for everything else.

Most of you will not be able to find this polish remover because I found it in a Korean beauty boutique called The Face Shop. I found this store in CA while visiting family over the holidays. They do have a website but it's in Korean. I tried using Google translator but no success. On Wikipedia, it says they have stores on the west coast and you can also find their products at Walgreens, but I've never seen it before. If you do, let me know!

  1. We have the same thoughts on this one. It's my first time to try a nail polish remover with acetone but doesn't dry out my skin.

    I still would buy it thought even if it's expensive. I don't put nail polish regularly so I won't have to buy it as often.

    And I really love the strawberry scent.
