Review: Mont Bleu Beauty Tools


Today I've got a pretty big post, with some awesome beauty tools from Czech company Mont Bleu! Mont Bleu is perhaps best known for their crystal glass nail files and over the years, they've expanded to other areas of the beauty market, such as tweezers, hair brushes, compact mirrors and jewelry.

We'll kick things off with the product Mont Bleu is famous for: their files. Made from Czech tempered glass and decorated with Swarovski crystal elements, they're as pretty as they are practical. They have a huge variety of colors and styles to choose from. Mine are in my two favorite colors: pink and blue!



Some close-ups of the beautiful crystal patterns on the files. They were hard to photograph because they were so crazy reflective!


These crystal files have a fine grit to them but they also feel very durable, so they're perfect for someone like me who tends to get a little overzealous when using files. They should last a good, long time without getting all scuffed and scratched up like traditional files do.

Next up we've got a set of eyebrow tweezers. Like the files, the tweezers are also decorated with Swarovski elements. However, Mont Bleu also offers plain tweezers, if crystals aren't your thing. Personally, I think everything should be as bejeweled and bedazzled as much as possible. ;)


The tweezers have a nice balance to them, making them easy and comfortable to hold and use. The surface of the tweezers is rubberized to prevent them from slipping out of your hand.


The stainless steel slant-tip is very precise and sharp, so you can grab even fine, short hairs without a problem. I've got a pair of Tweezerman tweezers and these easily match those in quality.

Next is a crystal glass foot file. You can't really tell in the picture, but the blue end has a smooth portion, to make the file easier and more comfortable to grip. 


Have you ever used a foot file where it's like, "Well, this isn't so much filing as it is ripping apart the skin on my feet?" Yeah, this isn't like those at all. The grit's obviously coarser, since it's designed for feet, but it's still very fine at the same time, allowing for precise and effective filing. This is easily the best foot file I've ever tried!

Then last but not least, we've got a lovely set of Swarovski crystal earrings:


I wore these to work and they were nice and comfortable throughout the day. They're a good size for studs--big enough to be noticed but not so large they take over your whole ear. Plus I love how shiny and reflective they are! They really catch the light!

So overall, some great products here that marry beautiful presentation with impressive quality. Any of these would make a fantastic gift for the beauty lover in your life or a nice treat for yourself! ;)

You can purchase Mont Bleu products from their website. They ship internationally and for me, the deliver process went off without a hitch.

Have you tried anything from Mont Bleu before? What beauty tools could you not live without?
