Ever wonder what all those different types of tweezer tips are for? Here’s a quick breakdown of when and why you’d want to use each one:

Slant Tip: Preferred tip for eyebrow shaping and general tweezing. The flat edge of the slant quickly tweezes large surfaces; flip the tweezers to use the pointed edge for precision tweezing (see our 4860).

Rounded Tip: Great for sensitive skin and people new to tweezing. The rounded tip eliminates sharp edges that can pinch or cut the skin while still allowing for close contact and a clean tweeze (see our 4861).

Pointed Tip: Ideal for ingrown hair and splinters. The pointed tip allows the user to isolate single hair more easily for maximum precision. It can also slide gently under the skin’s surface to grasp and remove ingrowns or splinters (see our 4862).

Square Tip: Is most useful for tweezing large, flat surfaces like the chin. Can also be used after body waxing to remove any hair that was left behind (see our 4816).

Claw Tip: Like the square tip, it is used for large flat surfaces and after body waxing. The tip angle can help to improve visibility and make grasping hair easier. The tips also tend to “lock” together more tightly to help grasp the hair and minimize slipping (see our 4887).

Do you love foaming hand soap as much as I do? Well it’s really quite easy to make, and you can use the many scents of our Bath Therapy washes to create your own creative options at the sink! Plus, refilling a soap dispenser saves you money and helps to reduce waste in our crowded landfills.

OK, here’s how you make your own foaming soap. Just make sure you have a foaming dispenser, yes… they are different. Either reuse a foaming soap dispenser
you have, or get one that’s intended for reuse (like these). Take any liquid soap and dilute it with warm water 3:7. In other words, fill it 30% with liquid soap and the rest with water. This ratio may vary depending on the thickness of the soap you’re starting with. Warm water is going to mix with the soap better than cold water. Put the top back on and shake it. In the end it should look fluid and splash around as much as water would. If it’s still thick and flowing slowly, try adding more water. That’s all there is to it! So easy!

Bath Therapy body washes are great for making your own foaming hand soap because you have so many scent options, they’re not just for the bath. Just imagine
the possibilities! You could have a soothing Mint & Rosemary in the kitchen, or one of our new floral scents like Passion Flower in the bathroom! Halloween is coming, imagine having Pink Sugar foaming hand soap to go with all that candy! Use an extra dispenser just for the kids with something like our popular Groovy Grape to get them excited about washing their hands! Maybe you prefer something NPA
certified
like our Bath Therapy Naturals line. Imagine how excited your friends would be to see what you’ve done next if you change your hand soap everytime they come over! There are so many more possibilities than just what’s offered
on the supermarket shelf, allowing you to be creative and have some fun with everyday things in your house!

Hi Everybody!  Ryan has agreed to let me post (a short post!) today because I’m in a shout-it-from-the-rooftops kind of mood about an exciting new product launch here at Belcam.  You guys might remember me as the Beauty Tools Brand Manager (or the gal who pesters Ryan until he lets me post).  🙂  ANYWAY…..

Here’s my exciting news!  We all know how hot tattoo art is and we can find it on just about any product these days.  But our 4 NEW Slant Tip Tweezers are the first metal grooming tools to feature this kind of art.

We are so, so lucky to have a very talented artist on our staff and when I told her our idea for putting some original tattoo art on tweezers, she came through with the most amazing designs.  Of course, we decided that we’d use high quality stainless steel tweezers from Italy as a base for the art.  They feature extra fine tips – the kind that grab the hair every time, not cut it off at the base.  They’re great for shaping eyebrows and for general tweezing, but best of all, they’re just SO COOL to look at.  I pulled one out in front of my friends the other day and they totally freaked out – and these girls aren’t hard core tattoo fans or anything.  Well, one might be.  😉

I promised this would be short ,so I’ll stop myself and just say that we’re all REALLY excited here and hope you all like the tweezers too.  Check them out below and if you want to buy some, you can get them at our online shop BelcamShop.com.

PS  My boss is letting me give a dollar off these tweezers when you use promo code “KIMROCKS” at checkout.  No, just kidding, you don’t need a promo code – we’re automatically giving everyone $1.00 Off.  But if you really want to type Kim Rocks! you can leave a comment to that effect below!  🙂

Bath Therapy dee-lish Gingerbread 3-in-1 Body Wash, Bubble Bath, and Shampoo

Bath Therapy dee-lish Gingerbread 3-in-1 Body Wash, Bubble Bath, and Shampoo

If you’re like me and LOVE foaming hand soap you’re sure to have a foaming soap pump dispenser around (yes, it’s different than other pumps). You can take any kind of body wash or liquid soap, water it down and put it in this dispenser and it will come out as foam (see Foaming Hand Soap). Just make sure you dilute it about 3 parts soap to 7 parts water, about 1/4 soap and the rest water. Mix it up well, warmer water works best for this. Each dispenser is different so you may have to try it out and add more water.

Recently I brought home some of our new Dee-Lish Holiday Scent 3-in-1 Body Wash, Bubble Bath and Shampoo to try out, and I just love the scent, Gingerbread! Suddenly I got the bright idea to mix up some for foaming hand soap in the house! I tried it and it’s so great. It really helps add a little holiday cheer! Every time somebody washes their hands the smell of fresh gingerbread radiates through the room. So much fun! The Bath Therapy Dee-Lish Holiday Scents are really great as a 3-in-1 Body Wash, Bubble Bath and Shampoo, and also come in Apple Pie scent, and Orange Truffle! You could have a different scent for each sink in the house! They’re also on sale on our new website right now for just $3.99 for a 500 mL bottle. Check it out, and happy holidays!

Hi Everyone! I’m Kim, and I’m the Brand Manager for Belcam’s Beauty Tools division. Ryan has very graciously allowed me to do a guest post today (read: I badgered him mercilessly until he finally shouted “FINE!”).

Moving right along… It’s about the time of year when we’re thinking about holiday gift giving, or more precisely, we’re wondering how it’s already Thanksgiving – and stressing about how we still have people to buy for and no idea what to get them.

So, I thought that making a list of beauty tool suggestions would be in keeping with the holiday spirit of giving and helping others. And, truthfully, I really wanted to have a list named “Kim’s Holiday Picks”. I’m convinced that Ryan is secretly thinking I’m an egomaniac for doing this, but his gift to me is to keep quiet.

Anyway, here is this list – I hope it helps you in your search for the perfect high quality (and affordable) gift of beauty for everyone on your list!

Kim’s Holiday Picks!
(insert fanfare here)

• For the Sophisticated Woman on your List
Aero Tweeze Slant Tip Tweezers These tweezers are made in Italy of high quality stainless steel and are available in 4 fun colors (purple is our best seller). The tips are ultra-fine and will tweeze even the shortest, finest hair the first time. No more struggling, no more slipping and no more cutting your eyebrow hair at the skin line with sharp tweezer tips… leaving that irritating and unsightly black “dot” of unreachable hair. If you’re wondering why anyone in their right mind would pay $18.99 for tweezers, you owe it to yourself to buy these. You’ll love them, your friends will love them and you’ll never need to ask yourself that nagging question again!

• For that Special Girl (who will lose the $18.99 tweezers and you’ll hold it against her forever)
Fiesta Tweezers – Slant Tip These tweezers are also made in Italy of stainless steel. They are available in 4 shimmering colors (the most popular, again, is purple). The tips are very good for eyebrows and general tweezing and their quality is far superior to the mass/retail tweezers you see from the “big boys”. At $6.50, they’re also super-affordable and perfect for teenage girls or slightly flaky friends who tend to lose things.

• For the Manly Man
Mustache Scissors & Comb OK, here’s the inside scoop on this product. Do NOT be misled by the Mustache part. These scissors are made in Italy (noticing a trend?) and feature thin, precise tips and a smooth cutting action. While they’re great for mustaches and beards, and don’t rely on batteries or electricity, they are also perfect for nose hair, ear hair and trimming any “mad scientist” eyebrows that tend to crop up. Oh, and they’re ideal for evening out sideburns or trimming any other unwanted body hair (read: they’ll get a LOT of use!).

• For the Hip Guy
Professional Toenail Clippers These toenail clippers are stainless steel, made in Japan and just super-cool. They have a slight wave-design and a high end brushed finish. Ideal for both toenails and fingernails, any guy would be proud to pull these out of his bathroom drawer. And the best part is that the super-sharp blades cut cleanly and leave nails smooth and burr-free. These clippers even boast a removable clipping catcher so you’re not accidentally impaling your poor, bare foot in the middle of the night on a razor sharp clipping that wasn’t picked up from the bathroom floor! I’m not pointing any fingers here, but some men just let those toenails fly, so the catcher is a good idea.

Well, that does it. If you’re wondering why I haven’t put anything in here for the younger kids on your list, shame on you. What self-respecting kid wants a grooming product for the holidays?! I mean, really. 🙂
