Today I’m sharing my Karma Naturals Unscented Nail Polish Remover review with you. Recently in the Phyrra Facebook Group, one of my friends recommended that I try this nail polish remover after I was lamenting how hard it was to find a cruelty free nail polish remover without acetone. So I bought this to try it out. Karma Naturals Nail Polish Remover comes in 3 different varieties, Unscented, Tea Tree Oil and Lavender. Lavender tends to give me migraines, so I went for the unscented. This is an organic, cruelty free, vegan nail polish remover.

About Karma Naturals Unscented Nail Polish Remover
This remover is guaranteed to be Soy Based, Non Toxic, Non Carcinogenic, Free of any Petroleum Ingredients, Derived from Farm Crops (supporting American Farmers), Packaged in 100% Recyclable Glass Bottles, and 4 Fluid Ounces.
The ingredients list is very short – Propylene Carbonate – An odorless, colorless liquid used as a solvent, Soybean Oil Methyl Exter – Used as a solvent in liquid separations, and Tocopheryl Acetate – Also know as Vitamin E, a common vitamin supplement.
The way I use this is I take a cotton pad, like the type that I use on my face with a micellaire water, and fold it in half, then fold it in half again. I thoroughly saturate the pad, then I hold it against my nail for about a minute. Then I start to wipe back and forth on the nail.
The nail polish remover has a very slight odor that’s not particularly strong to me. I’m actually not sure how to describe it. It’s just what I would consider a subtle smell.
It feels oily on my nails. It does a really good job of removing normal nail polish. For glitter, you’re probably going to have to use the foil method (soak a cotton ball in remover and then wrap it in aluminum foil and put that on your nail for 5 minutes) to get it off. I feel like it actually does a better job than Zoya Remove, and I never thought anything could top that for me. It’s been my holy grail remover for years! I feel like I end up using less of this nail polish remover than I did of Zoya remove. On average it only takes me 1 cotton round for 1 hand, rather than 2 or 3 with other removers.
Unfortunately, this will also remove acrylic nails, so use with caution!
I like the short list of ingredients, the way it works, and the recyclable glass bottle packaging. If I was going to pick anything to complain about, it would be that you only get 4 oz for the price, rather than 8 oz. For comparison, Zoya Remove is $8.99 for 8 oz. Still, I’m absolutely happy with it and will repurchase it again once I run out, though I think that will take me quite a while.
