How To Ease The Itch Of A Mosquito Bite

A Fast Friday Fun Tip… 

A cure to reduce itching & swelling of a Mosquito Bite by Barbie's Beauty Bits

Here is a great cure that my mom used when we were kids, and with all of this rain, I think we need to get rolling with this one.

Ailment: A swollen irritated mosquito bite.

Cure: Roll-on Antiperspirant. Yes, you read right! If you're in the pits with an itchy skeeter bite, pull out your antiperspirant and dab it on your pit BITE!

Why does this work? Antiperspirant contains aluminum salts that assist to absorb the fluid in the bite, helping to lessen the itching and decrease the swelling.

The Best Way To Get The Curliest Eyelashes

The best way to get the curliest eyelashes with a heated eyelash curlier, by Barbie's Beauty Bits

TGIF lovelies! Today’s post is going to be a first of a bi-weekly series on my much-loved  beauty products. I’ve had a lot ask  me what are my favorite skin-care products, eyeshades, hair products and more.  Therefore, I’ve decided that I will share a love with you every other week.  This week’s obsession is instant long lashes at the blink of an eye, with…

A Heated Eye Lash Curler

About: I use all kinds of methods to achieve long lashes, but this is one of my favorites loves.  Unlike traditional eye lash curlers that when not used correctly can pinch your eyelids or pull out your lashes, this one is fool proof.  It curls in seconds lifting and curling the lashes with heat.   Simply turn it on and use as if you are putting on mascara.  Unlike a traditional non heated, eyelash curlers where using mascara is not a good idea. You can use this one before or after mascara application, definitely worth lashing out about!

Is it safe?  Yes it is.  Prior to using this, I used to heat up my eyelash curler with a quick blast of warm hair from the hair dryer, which can sometimes be risky if you’re in a hurry.  The, is quick and safe!

O.P.I. Nail Polish Dupes

O.P.I. nail polish dupes 2013 by Barbie's Beauty Bits

I think I could start an eBay store with all of these nail polish I’ve accumulated over the years and this past month for my A-Z nail polish name's series. However, prior to tossing some of the old  polishes that had sat in my drawer for years, I decided to see if there were any O.P.I. dupes.  Some of the polishes nailed it with similarity, while others were darker, finishes varied and some the consistence was different.  Overall, the search was harder than I anticipated, an, although I hate to admit this, some polishes were old, so it was hard to tell the actual color.   None the less, I was able to find enough colors, one for each nail, for this Mani Monday post.

DUPE:  Charla, By Zoya
