I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity by Irresistible Me to try their Sapphire 8 in 1 Complete Curler so I thought I would share my initial impressions.
Irresistible Me is a brand that is primarily known for their clip in hair extensions, but they also stock hair tools, accessories, haircare and even 100% human hair wigs. They ship internationally and there is free shipping on orders over $150. If you are a first time purchaser you can get 20% off your order with the code GET20OFF. If you want to check out the whole range then definitely visit http://www.irresistibleme.com.
So I was sent the Sapphire 8 in 1 Curler which retails for US$199 and comes with 8 different interchangeable barrels. Do keep in mind that since this is an electronic device from the US then you may need to get a powder adapter to use in other countries. I bought mind from ebay for around $1 but if you curl your hair often then I would suggest investing in a better quality safer adapter.
I love the packaging of this product. It comes in a very heavy, but compact, box and inside the box is what appears to be a giant brush roll type case that contains the wand, a heat resistant glove and eight barrels. The roll has three press studs that keep it firmly closed when rolled up. I love that this fits away so neatly and you don't have to worry about rummaging around for parts in a drawer or under your sink.
Some fun facts about this curler:
- It has tourmaline barrels which last longer than ceramic barrels
- It heats in 20 seconds and the adjustable heat setting goes up to 220C/450F
- It has a LED screen which shows you the temperature increasing and turns green when it is at the set temperature
- The tips of the barrels stay cool so you don't burn yourself
- It comes with a 1 year warranty
- 360 degree cord
The 8 barrels that comes in the pack are:
- Tapered 18 to 9mm
- Tapered 25 to 13mm
- Reverse tapered (thats probably not a real term) 13 to 25mm
Check out the information sheet on the Irresistible Me website for more information about the looks you can achieve with each barrel.
This is a great kit if you want to experiment with hair curlers. It works really well and is very affordable for everything you get. My only downside to this is that the wand feels a little cheap, but as long as the technology works well then I am happy. I recommend this to anyone who is interested in an affordable professional kit that offers a lot of versatility in one easy neat kit.
