Deborah Lippman "The Stripper to go"

I got this product in my December Glossybox which was a pretty impressive box full of lots of goodies but this product is one of the best I received because it really works! Deborah Lippman is a celebrity manicurist  whose products are more well known in America than here in the UK but I have heard great things about her nail polish collection through beauty bloggers. I was therefore thrilled to receive a small nail polish sample in the box as well as some polish remover. However as much as I loved the polish colour, a pinky red glitter, it was the remover mitt which really blew me away! I will do a blog post on the nail polish too but I just had to rave about this remover first before painting my nails this weekend :)


Deborah Lippman "The Stripper to go"
www.houseoffraser.co.uk - £14.00

Here is the result of one use of the mitt which takes polish off all 10 nails. If you buy the full pack you receive 6 sachets for £14.00 which is pretty pricey considering you can buy a pack of nail polish remover wipes for under a fiver in Superdrug and will receive many more than 6 wipes however I have never found a wipe as effective as this! I was wearing a plum red colour as you can see from the messy mitt which is usually a difficult colour to remove, especially on finger nails. However this colour was easily swiped away by placing my finger inside the small mitt and pressing lightly then sweeping it off of the nail. I did the same for each finger and the colour was removed from every one in under 2 minutes. I usually spend at least 5 minutes removing colour when using regular polish remover and cotton wool so I couldn't believe how quick and effective this formula was. Not only is it effective but it smells more pleasant than previous removers, with lavender and nourishing properties from aloe vera. It also has anti bacterial properties and did not sting the cuticle areas.

The reviews on the House of Fraser website are not very good which I am shocked about, with a few customers saying how it simply did not work. For me the results speak for themselves, a stained mitt and clear nails in under 2 minutes. Next time I go on holiday I will definitely be purchasing these despite the fairly high price because they do everything I would want from a polish remover and feel like they are treating the nails instead of destroying them!

  1. I also received this in my Glossybox, which I have yet to try! I don't know whether to save it for an emergency, etc, saying as I probably won't purchase the 6 pack!
    Sounds really good, though! Great post!
