Well it is what it is: poison in a bottle, which almost all nail polish removers basically are. Itís acetone-free, sure, but that doesnít mean itís particularly safe or gentleÖ First of all, the smell is exceptionally strong and alcohol-y. I actually feel it all the way up in my eyes when I'm using the remover. Not fun. Yes, it does remove nail polish very quickly, but as an added bonus, it leaves my cuticles extremely dry and chapped :| The avocado oil doesnít really make a difference when itís preceded by ethyl acetate and alcohol in the ingredient list. I used LCN's acetone-free nail polish remover before, whose scent was sooooo mild compared to Maybelline. LCN also felt gentlerÖ (I donít have the bottle anymore so I canít compare the ingredient lists). All in all, I don't think I'll be able to use this one until the bottleís emptyÖ And the bottle, by the way, is quite ugly, not that it matters that much.

Ingredients: Ethyl Acetate, Alcohol, Aqua/Water, Glycerin, Parfum/Fragrance, Persea Gratissima/Avocado Oil, Benzyl Salicylate, Benzophenone-1, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Hexyl Cinnamal, Limonene, Eugenol, Linalool, CI 42090/Blue 1.
