The Breeze Hair Brush ($50.61) is absolutely stunning. It’s a wooden boar bristle brush that is studded with Swarovski crystals. The red and white combination couldn’t be better for Valentine’s Day (it also comes in blue, which I think is equally gorgeous). The brush is extremely gentle and it’s perfect for winter because it won’t cause the dreaded static hair.

The Corals V Compact Mirror ($128.48) is certainly spendy, but it is fabulous. I really can’t adequately describe how flipping gorgeous this mirrored compact is – the pictures don’t even begin to do it justice. The Swarovski crystals are applied by hand, and it comes in a beautiful black leatherette gift box. The compact is made of metal and it has just enough heft to feel substantial without being unwieldy. It opens easily to reveal two mirrors, a standard one and magnifying one. This will make you swoon!

You need to take a few moments to peruse the Mont Bleu website. They ship super fast and the beautiful selections seem endless. Find what you want for Valentine’s Day and tell your significant other…or buy it for yourself!  – Lisa

Mont Bleu’s birthday gift for Marcia the Capricorn

mont bleu marcia birthday set 2

When you get to be older birthdays just aren’t that exciting. I remember the anticipation of them when I was young or when I was about to turn drinking age. I remember the dread of them turning 30 or 40 not realizing at that point in my life that it was just another day. Now I find that my birthday is just another day. I look forward to spending extra time with my family and I adored the many wishes I received especially on Facebook this year. But gifts were basically non-existent. Except for one amazing package from Mont Bleu. I was in shock that a company that I’d worked with on the blog, one that has products I totally adore, would be kind enough to send a surprise package.  I’m not showing off or bragging, but I wanted you to see these beauties and publically thank Mont Bleu for remembering this old broad.

Let’s start with the fact that my January birthday makes me a Capricorn. This glass file is part of the Zodiac line so you can find one of these wonderful files for anyone’s birthday. I’ve raved before about Mont Bleu’s glass files and I continue to do so with this one. I love everything about this.

They also sent this beautiful glass file from their Crystal line. This particular beauty has blue and clear Swarovski Elements crystals. Picking one out could take you all day since they have 7 pages of designs, each one absolutely beautiful. You can’t go wrong with any of their glass files.

If I’d just opened those two in the box I’d have been jumping up and down but there was more including these beautiful Crystal Earrings. Lisa has a similar pair and they absolutely sparkle. They change color depending on the light. They are subtle yet unusual enough that they are noticeable. mont bleu marcia earrings

The next item in this surprise package is a Pen with Swarovski Crystals. I adore a beautiful pen and you can’t get prettier than this.

Last but far from least is this fabulous Slant Tip Tweezers. I’m addicted to tweezers. Without realizing it I took 4 with me on my trip in January. I had them hidden everywhere because “what if” I ended up without one there? But I never had one before with Swarovski crystals on it so this is very special to me.

I want to thank Mont Bleu for this amazing present (even my husband was a little embarrassed that they beat him to the punch). But more important is that I want my readers to see that this is a company they should look towards for gifts. There’s something for every woman in your life. Even my 93 year old mom was impressed and wants a glass file now. Beauty and quality all at low prices. It was worth having a birthday this year! — Marcia

Cynthia Rowley and Tweezerman team up for quality and beauty

Tweezerman teams up with Cynthia Rowley

When was the last time you bought a tweezers? I bet it’s been a long time. I’ve talked to so many people who don’t realize that their tweezers just don’t work the same way that they used to. You drop it (or at least I do) and don’t realize that the tip isn’t quite the same. You use it over and over and don’t realize that the grip isn’t quite as powerful as it used to be. Here’s an idea. Buy yourself a present from Tweezerman. Get a new tweezers. Then send in your old Tweezerman to be sharpened for free. They have a lifetime guarantee. You can read all about it right here.

Cynthia Rowley for Tweezerman

Now that I have your attention I want to share some of the newest Tweezerman products. Tweezerman is always chosen by magazines like Allure as the Best of Beauty because their original slant tip tweezers are so amazing. They are precise and slanted just so to grab every hair. Every year Tweezerman picks a designer to be part of their series and this year it’s Cynthia Rowley, the fashion designer. She’s created several sporty looking tweezers along with a coordinating nail file.

You have your choice of her Sporty Foulard prints in either Light Blue or Cobalt Blue for $25. There’s also a red mini-slant one for $15. My eyes would certainly light up if I got one of these for my upcoming birthday or the winter holidays.

Another great Tweezerman tool with the Cynthia Rowley touch is the Filemate in the same sporty design. This is only $5 and comes in a slim case so you can carry it with you without destroying the integrity of it. Tweezerman is as expert in nail tools as they are in eyebrow and eye tools.

Mont Bleu for hands and feet

It’s always fun to find cool online shops that have wonderful gifts for the beauty lover.  Check out Mont Bleu for fabulous crystal and glass files that are gentle, effective, and beautiful too.

I absolutely adore the Jewelled Crystal Nail File ($16.10) with a silver figurine heart.  This beauty is made of Original Czech glass, and has beautiful Swarovski rhinestones.  Glass nail files are made from tempered glass, and they are so much better for your nails than regular nail files.  They are gentler and they never leave you with ragged edges.


It’s the perfect size for your purse, and it comes in a pretty black velvet sleeve.  Mont Bleu says it will last a lifetime and they give an unlimited guaranty on all of their nail files.

Callus Remover Glass File

For the feet, you will fall in love with the Callus Remover Glass File ($22.40).  This is a callus scraper made from glass.  It is extremely gentle and effective, it scrapes off hard skin and calluses easily and painlessly.  Plus it’s so much more hygienic than pumice stone, and it’s pretty!  This is a foot tool you can actually leave out on your vanity.

Mont Bleu is an excellent choice for your online shopping because they are the producers of their products, not just the retailers.  They have so many gorgeous options, you really need to visit the website to see what they are all about.  – Lisa

Mont Bleu Swarovski Crystal Nail Files – to die for!

Beauty Info Zone is obviously a beauty blog. We like to show you beautiful products that we can recommend to help you make decisions on how to spend your money wisely. Today I have something that I think is absolutely beautiful! It’s a crystal nail file by Mont Bleu and every time I take it out it brings a big smile to my face.

I love a little glitz in my life, I think most women reading this do too. Mont Bleu makes some of the most beautiful glitz I own. What I have to recommend is their glass nail file. Just look at the pattern of the Swarovski crystals on mine and you’ll know why I swoon.

If you’ve never used a glass nail file you are in for a double treat with these – beauty and function. Glass files are extremely hygienic, you’ll never have mold or fungus growing on one. They don’t get dull. They have a smoother surface than other types of files. They are easy to keep clean – just a little soapy water, rinse and dry. There is a slight chance of breaking one but if you are careful that shouldn’t happen. Mont Bleu crystal files aren’t guaranteed against breakage but the surface of them has a lifetime guarantee.

Once you realize how great a glass file is, don’t you want one that is absolutely stunning? Mont Bleu makes so many designs that you will want more than one.  I absolutely need this one with the heart on it, it is calling my name!

Mont Bleu heart series

But you might want one of the other 140 designs like this one in pink and purple.

Mont Bleu Comet - Amethyst

There’s surely one that will make your heart go pitter patter or one that will make a gift for someone you care about. These retail for between 8 and 10,00 € ($10.50 – $13 US).

Mont Bleu’s products are made from high quality tempered Czech glass decorated with Swarovski crystals. Ranked as the safest and most durable manicure tool, their glass nail files will satisfy any need of yours; whether for professional use or home nail work. Each file is handmade, they meticulously put the Swarovski crystals on each one by hand. My file is 5.5 inches long (135 mm) and came in a black velvet case to keep it safe.

Lisa has written about the beautiful Mont Bleu earrings she has and wears (I’ve seen her wear them a dozen times at least!) and showed some of the other products they make in her review.  We both agree that Mont Bleu is a quality brand that we want more of in our lives. We also agree that you’ll want them too. — Marcia
