    GLAMOUR Tries: Mylee Magic Gel Remover Review

    There’s no better pastime than testing out the coolest new skincare/makeup/hair trends and snazzy innovations in beauty tech from the comfort of your own home. That said, there’s nothing more frustrating than spending upwards of £100 on a new at-home facial system or snazzy pair of hair straighteners, only to find out they don’t *actually* work.

    Enter GLAMOUR Tries: the weekly Instagram series which sees GLAMOUR editors do all of the time-consuming (and expensive) work for you.

    Yep, we’ve been busy trying out all of the wacky and wonderful beauty crazes to take the internet (read: TikTok) by storm – from FaceGym’s Faceshot Electrical Microneedling Device (the skin tool of dreams) to Isle Of Paradise’s Pro-Glow Spray Tan Mister and Larry King Hair Care’s Flyaway With Me Kit. These are the products every influencer/Gen-Z beauty slueth/beauty editor is talking about on the internet – but that you want to be sure about before parting with your money.

    Thanks to GLAMOUR Tries, you won’t need to waste your hard-earned pennies on testing these innovations yourself. We’re getting in their first, giving you the lowdown and making sure you invest in products that genuinely work. Like what you see? You can shop all of the products seen on GLAMOUR tries in previous weeks down below. Race ya?

    The best at-home gel nail kits to take your manicure game in-house, if you just can’t face the salon wait list

    On GLAMOUR Tries this week, Beauty Editor Lottie Winter got her hands on the Magic Gel Remover from Mylee, a paint-on formula that claims to remove your gel nail polish in a matter of minutes.

    “I’m hoping this is going to be the answer to all my prayers regarding at-home gel removal,” Lottie says. “I love gel nail polish until it’s time to take it off. Normally I peel it, which leaves my nails in tatters, or if I do the foil and all of that it just takes so long. Apparently all you have to do is buff away the top layer of gel with a nail file, apply the Magic Gel Remover like a nail polish, leave it for three to five minutes and then your gel will just fall away like magic.”

    Side note: A lot of gel removers can contain methylene chloride (paint stripper), but this one doesn’t. 

    Lottie gets to work by completing each step, applying a layer of the product before leaving it to work it’s ‘magic’. She then shows a close up of the formula dissolving the gel away from the nail and how easily it slides off afterwards with a cuticle pusher.

    “Mind blown. Life transformed. I am a massive fan of this.” Says Lottie.
