I have had this post ready to go for WEEKS but accidentally never published it, oops! I am very happy to have had the pleasure to review some of the items from Essie’s new collection called Naturally Clean. I tried the hand wash, hand purifier and nail polish remover, but they also have a nail cleanser as well as manicure revitalizer. I really like this line though it IS expensive and not easy to get (like most soap or hand purifier at Target for instance). Reviews are below pics, enjoy!
This is the purifying hand treatment, which is basically like anti-bacterial sanitizer. I love this stuff! This is way more gentle on my hands than any other sanitizer I have used and doesn’t have that alcohol smell or stickiness afterwords. The scent is very mild and natural. I also love that it’s in an 8oz bottle and has a pump. Because the bottle design is pretty, I have it sitting on my bathroom counter and it looks great there! This stuff doesn’t come cheap though, it’s $25.00 on their website, ouch!
This is the purifying hand wash, which I
really like. The scent is a very gentle “natural” clean scent that
isn’t perfumey or flowery or anything distracting. The soap is very nice and gentle and doesn’t foam up too much (which can mean lots of chemicals are added). Because it is $15.00 for an 8oz bottle though, I probably wouldn’t normally buy it.
The purifying nail polish remover was the only product I wasn’t too fond of in some ways. First off the good. It definitely removes polish fast and easily. Even glitters come off quickly. The scent again is a very natural mild one and it doesn’t have that horrific stench that generic acetone removers tend to have. However, it did leave those white, dry streaks on my nails and cuticle area after I had used it. So overall it was a little too drying for me because I am sensitive to that kind of thing, but it may work for other people. Their 4oz bottle is $7.00 and their 16oz bottle is $17.00 on their website.
Overall I really like the idea of this line and think more gentle and natural products are great. However I fear that the expensive prices will keep a lot of people away.
You can find these on their website here as well as some discount places that I have not used so I can’t necessarily endorse!
