Mont Bleu Swarovski Element Glass Nail File, Tweezers and Earrings

I was recently contacted by Mont Bleu a company that has a wide variety of personal care accessories, most notably – their Czech glass nail files. Prominent bloggers like Charlotte from Lipglossiping have reviewed their products quite positively in the past so I didn’t hesitate to check out their offerings for myself.

As you may, or may not know – I play guitar. It means that my nails have to be short and above all -even-. Let’s just say I once had a cracked nail that had an encounter with a wayward extra super light string and a nail bed was sliced. Not wanting to repeat that fiasco, i’ve been pretty religious about filing my nails when they crack (which is often.) Of course i’d heard of glass nail files – but i’d never bothered to pick one up before. How different could they be, I thought to myself?

Pretty damn different.

Secret Clinical Strength Antiperspirant/Deodorant (Regular and Sensitive Skin) – Review

Dear. World,

My Uncle notoriously does not require the use of deodorant and antiperspirant. He oft-invites non-believers to smell his pits, which never smell – not even in his body building days. Oh he sweats…in fact he sweats quite a bit…but…it’s invariably sweet smelling or without scent. Yes. I’ve smelled them. Yes. It was both horrifying and intriguing at the same time. My boyfriend too, uses an antiperspirant solely for the novelty and occasional sweat-reducing properties…never for the deodorizing properties.

I…I am not that lucky. Enter Secret Clinical Strength.
