While I did love all of the products, the two that were a standout for me were the Acetone-Free Nail Polish Remover.
For nail polish removers, many of them contain acetone, which of course, is the powerful ingredient that effectively removes even the toughest of nail polish – but will also leave your nails feeling dry and brittle. Not to mention, the pesky smell that comes along with some nail polish removers (even if they ARE scented!). However, La Fresh’s Acetone-Free Nail Polish Remover has changed me for the good – I don’t think I can use another brand of nail polish remover after this! One pad does actually take off the polish of ten nails – and leaves them feeling pretty conditioned afterwards. In addition, there’s a heavenly and refreshing scent that provides a very soothing feeling – unlike the headache I usually get from smelling the fumes of a lot of nail polish removers. Rating: 5/5
I was really excited about the Instant Body Soother because after a long work day – all I want to do is relax and decompress from hecticness. While the wipes don’t exactly recreate the feeling of being in tranquil room of scented oils, candles, and mood music, the peppermint smell does provide some instant relief and puts me at ease for the evening. Rating: 4.5/5
The Oil-Free Face Cleansers work great for those with sensitive skin, as there’s an oil-free formula. I will note that they work well for those who are on the go and need a quick wipe-over – definitely not to replace the usual (and thorough) facial cleansing. I find that they work well if you do want to get any excess residue after your initial face wash. I was a little bothered by the scent from the scented wipes, but thankfully there are fragrance-free ones! Rating: 4/5
The Waterproof Makeup Remover also proved to remove a good chunk of makeup – and trust me, I’m quite the avid fan of smokey eyes with lots of resistant black eyeliner and shadow. Rating: 4/5
Do a lot of hand sanitizers leave your hands feeling dry? The Healthy Hand Sanitizer will help with that. Most hand sanitizers leave me reaching for my hand lotion, but La Fresh’s keep them pretty conditioned. Rating: 4/5
