Swisspers Nail Polish Remover Pads



After a suggestion from my friend, I decided to give the Swisspers Nail Polish Remover Pads a go! She really wants to try them, but she wants a review first! So she came to me! Aw, I'm touched!

I picked up this box from my local Coles for $4.99. I took it home, opened the box, and guess what - empty. That's right. For those of you who read my blog, you'll know I've had a similar experience with an Ulta3 nail polish, which led to me receiving three gorgeous colours from the lovely people over at the Heat Group. I must be cursed! I took it back to the store and received a replacement (even though they were so suspicious. But hey, I would be too) and brought it home to try it! 
I did tell Swisspers, but unfortunately no response. I fear it may have been a thief in the store rather than a Swisspers problem though.



Silly me realised the box was a lot heavier with an actual pot inside, I just somehow thought the pads would be in the box. Not sure what I was thinking there! At first I thought 36 sounded like a bit of a rip off, but when I opened the pot, I realised 36 was actually a lot! They were all stacked up, soaking, waiting to be used! They smelt like the usual nail polish remover, not too strong. I was happy they were acetone free, too!


This is one of the pads. Good sized, very wet! A little bit tricky to use with your hands, as it makes your hands wet. They say no mess - which I guess is good if you're a spiller when it comes to the acetone bottle, but this is a little bit messy too! I'm not complaining though, it's definitely a bit easier than using a bunch of cotton balls!


This was the result after a few nails. It worked surprisingly well, but did take me a little bit longer than it usually would using cotton balls. 



This was the end result. Two hands, 10 nails in total! By the end it did get a bit dry, as expected, but did the job wonderfully! Like I said, it did take a bit longer than it would using cotton balls, but I was wearing shatter over normal nail polish, which always takes a little longer to remove. I also ended up using the same pad for my toe nails. I was wearing glitter, and it removed it well enough with no residue.

So overall, I think these are a great idea, especially for travel or in your handbag. I'll be using them for those purposes, but when I'm at home I'll probably stick to the cotton ball and polish remover, so I don't waste these beauties for when I really need them! Final verdict? I'd repurchase them, it's a nifty little product!

  1. I'm glad these work for you. I tried the Kmart brand and they were really crappy!

    1. Oh that's a shame! I was going to buy the no name brand but then I figured I might as well go for a better known brand, just in case. It does take time to get used to using them, but otherwise they worked well :)

  2. I would definitely pick them up if they were available.They are really cheap too! I'd keep them as a back up for when I run out of nail polish and when I go away.

  4. It's so bizzare that it was empty! Sadly thieves know how to get away with things like that. Great product though!

  5. A few years ago my mum had bought a face cream and when she decided to start using it she realised it was empty. I thought she had used it and had forgotten, but now I see that maybe it was really empty. Unbelievable.
