Review: Cutex Advanced Revival Nail Polish Remover Pad

As a member of Poshly, a beauty contest site, I was recently given the opportunity to review Cutex's Advanced Revival Nail Polish Remover Pads. For a box of 10, it costs $3.99 (according to prices found online) and according to the packaging one pad should be enough for 10 nails. This is 10 uses for under $4.
Advanced Revival is a newly launched, patent-pending formula that combines the power of acetone with the strengthening and nourishing of natural drying oils. The natural drying oils begin as a liquid and turns into a solid once exposed to air. This drying process is what strengthens the nails, leaving them feeling nourished and clean after only one use. Unlike any other nail polish remover, Cutex Advanced Revival contains natural botanical oils, Apricot seed, Black currant and Flaxseed, which strengthen and nourish nails.

When I opened the package there was no spilling like with Deborah Lippmann and Julep, which I appreciated and no overwhelming odor. The felt texture was similar to Deborah Lippmann's finger mitts (very thick). However, I wasn't able to remove all the nail polish for all 10 nails before the pad dried out. I got to 7, which is not a lot considering I wasn't wearing glitter or fancy nail art.
I was wearing a pink so I was pleased that the pad didn't stain my nails as I moved along my hand (which happens a lot with these pads) and my nails didn't feel dried out.

- Didn't leak everywhere
- No strong odor
- Didn't stain my hands
- Felt pad was strong
- Good for traveling

- One sheet didn't remove all 10 nails as promised
- Not sure I'd dish out $4 to have to use 2 pads for 2 hands each time

Would I buy it again? No, only for the simple fact that I wouldn't want to open up another package to remove my nail polish. Feels too wasteful. But satisfied with the condition of my nails after using.

Have you ever tried this product? What was your experience?


  1. Hi Kimberlee, the Up & Up pads from Target are horrible and I don't recommend those either.

  2. I've never been a fan of these pads.. They are great however if you are traveling or something.. I tend to keep the sample ones I get in a stash just in case. Great review.

  3. Yeah, I could see them being good for a quick fix on the go. I do like that they don't spill like the other nail pads I've tried but you just can't beat e.l.f.'s nail polish pads for $2


We all have opinions... I want to hear yours!
