It would be fickle of us to say our favorite attribute of this remover is the fact that it’s purple. But, since it’s our favorite color, we’re sticking by it! Luckily, this remover delivers ten-fold.
For starters, the bottle design is ingenious. Not only is it huge (a whopping 8 ounces!), but it’s crafted with a unique twist-around flipper cap with push-down technology, ensuring no more polish remover comes out than you actually need. We feel like we’re in a nail salon every time we press a cotton ball to the top!
Add to the purple factor and the bottle design that this remover is amazing — three pumps on one cotton ball is enough for all 10 nails, and it’s not stripping or drying — and voila! Our favorite nail polish remover of all time has been born.
Zoya Remove+ retails for $9.99 at zoya.com.
These makeup remover towelettes make removing eye makeup so easy, we honestly can’t even think of not using them on a daily basis. One remover-soaked towelette is enough to remove even the heaviest, smokiest eye makeup (and we tested that this past weekend, to great results!).
We were worried the pads might be soaked in remover that left behind a greasy residue. Well, color us shocked — they are exactly the opposite! Some eye makeup removers are so grease-filled, we actually need to use a cleanser and tissues afterward … but not these. They’re also infused with organic cucumber extract to soothe the delicate skin around the eyes.
A unique blend of properties, called Eco-Aroma Therapy, is what really makes these makeup remover pads a sure standout. OrganiSoy moisturizes and nourishes lashes, Eco-Olive shields lashes from harsh environmental aggressors, Organic Orange Water nourishes and restores skin’s moisture levels, and — our personal favorite — Organic Lavender Essential Oil gives off a delightful aroma that makes us feel as though we just walked into a spa. Perfect after a hectic day at the office!
