Both of these nail polish removers are manufactured locally here
in the Philippines. Bobbie's nail polish remover is manufactured by Chic Centre Corporation while caronia Nail Polish Remover is Manufactured by Vibelle Manufacturing Corporation.
Both are locally made but of different manufacturers. so we're looking for a big difference here.


available in watsons, sm department stores and landmark.mostly everywhere
prices varies depending on stores.

Increases nail polish adherence
Does not leave white film on nails
with formula 30 acetone
tinted green

available in watsons, sm department stores ETC.

Removes nail polish fast without drying .
81% acetone
Tinted Purple.

I've been using bobbie's nail polish remover for almost half a year now or maybe even more. I'm not quite sure though. I'm on my third bottle now and I'm in the last quarter mark. I know that I've been repurchasing it but it doesn't necessarily mean that I'm inlove with this product. Well, it actually says what it does in th bottle and plus it says that it has a safer formula because of lesser acetone content.

What i hate about it is that it takes forever for it to remove polish successfully. I need to rub it off hardly and a lot of times just to get rid of my old nail polish as well as changing the cotton balls everytime just because its harder to remove if it isnt fresh because of build-up. But still it is actually backed up by the reason that it only has formula 30 acetone (30% or the entire solution is acetone) thus, making it harder to remove nail polish.I know we want everything rightaway but it doesn't hurt to use a safer formula for our nails right?

On the other hand, i discovered Caronia Nail Polish Remover at Watsons retailing for php65 containing only 250ml. 25ml lesser than Bobbie's Nail Polish Remover. But if you place both of the nail polish removers side by side it doesnt seem to have so much difference. The bottle and the content seems to be alike. Ive been raving about this product for months because its PURPLE its just sooooo cute. This product doesnt actually have much to say it just provides instructions at the back and a description that says it removes nail polish fast without drying up nails. Does it live on its promise?? BIG YES. I tried it the moment I went back home. I poured a generous amount on my cotton ball,rubbed it on my finger nails and in 3-4 swipes, my nail polish is gone. All gone.What i noticed as well is that it doesnt leave a white film on the nails even though it has 81% of acetone in its content and i must say that the pungent solventy scent doesnt linger as much as the Bobbie Nail Polish Remover.

All in all, I preffer the Caronia Nail Polish Remover just because its fast and its easy. It might be 15 pesos more than the other one but its actually worth it. it removes nail polish rightaway,solventy smell does not linger in the room which kills me, as well as it doesnt leave a white film on the nails.

But still, my opinions are based on how the product performed when i used it. It will still differ depending on your experiences. I havent used it a lot yet but if there are any changes, I'll inform you guys rightaway.
