I got these wipes in a “buy one, get one free” package at my local DM (Drogerie Markt) shop . I was leaving for my vacation and wanted something to remove my polish without carrying and spilling a bottle of nail polish remover. I chose these because they were a good deal (about 1,3 euros for 20 wipes).
The wipes have an individual packaging and are acetone-free. Now I must state from the beginning that I’m not an acetone-free obsessed person. I personally think that the other solvents they use instead of acetone are chemical solvents too, even if they don’t work as well.
Ingredients: BUTYL ACETATE, ETHYL ACETATE, ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL, PARFUM, PANTHENOL, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE
The packaging states that one of these is enough for ten nails. But the fact that they are non-acetone (so they work slower), associated with the fact that they dry up very fast, makes them not last until the tenth nail is clean. I have to literally race through my polish cleaning and not be as thorough in order to finish all my nails before the wipe stops working. Usually I end up pouring some nail polish remover on it for the last 2 nails or so. Of course removal of glitter polish is out of the question with these.
Another issue I had was with the smell of the wipes. I don’t know if it’s the thing they call “perfume” in the instruction box, or the many solvents that are evaporating so fast, but every time I use one of them I have to cough at least a few times because they make me choke. This makes me think that my good old acetone is much better for my windpipe than one of these "non-acetone" wipes.
In conclusion, I wouldn’t repurchase these again. I don’t think my money was wasted, because I ended up using almost all of these, but I wouldn’t spend it again on them. There are many Ebelin products I love (including the nail polish removers), but these were just not how they were supposed to be.
