Back when I was around about ten or eleven I went off on holiday to Newquay in Cornwall. Amongst the many stores full of intricate jewellery made from seashells and silver, the infamous Fat Willy’s Surf Shack and numerous beach side shops full of buckets and spades there was always going to be a novelty item coming home with us that summer. Mine that year was a hairbrush funnily enough; both me and my sister had one with our names inscribed on in some form of sparkly glitter and I cherished it more than you know. The reason I’m sharing this random memory with you is because when I was contacted by Mont Bleu asking if I would like to take a look at their products it was the first thing that jumped into my mind.
Mont Bleu produce glass nail files primarily along with a few other beauty accessories such as compact mirrors, hair brushes and manicure kits, all of which if you choose are embellished with Swarovski crystals. I was kindly sent two glass nail files* and a hairbrush* from the brand which I think are actually really nice, they’ve added a little bit of bling to my life which I’m not going to complain about. The hairbrush is made from selected boar bristles and can be used on any type of hair, it’s light weight and easy to clean making it a welcome addition to my small collection of hair brushes; I personally think these would make a nice little gift for young girls as at that age we all like sparkly things.
Moving swiftly onto the crystal nail files I have to say that these are fantastic and work really well to keep my nails in good condition; they also last a really long time too in my experience. In my opinion glass nail files are the best type of nail file I have ever used, therefore I’d most certainly never revert back to any other type of nail file now. It’s nice to have a couple more as I’m forever misplacing my only one.
Of course if embellished beauty tools such as these are not your cup of tea then Mont Bleu do these items without any embellishments at all so they are definitely worth checking out, especially if it’s about time you threw away that old hair brush!
