Disclaimer: I was not paid to do this review. This is based solely on my opinion of the product.



First Impression: 
  • It's lightweight, lighter than what I was expecting.  
  • The metal finish creeps me out a bit because I think it will BURN hair compared to the ceramic ones. They said the "Chromium Surface" will smooth and protect the hair - it sure looks like metal to me, I do not know what Chromium is, and I don't want to Google it. LOL.
What I like:
  • I tried the product on mom's hair, and it  produced average sized curls (I forgot to take pictures I'm sorry)
  • I didn't worry about putting an adapter. As a safety feature, the appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other).
  • Heats up fast
  • 25 heat setting
What I don't like:
  •  Heat setting dial - I think this might break easily. I would have preferred a digital counter and a button to adjust the heat settings. The solution: always use the highest heat setting regardless of the hair type but adjust the curling time depending on the hair type
  • Handle  is not sturdy (at least for my grip)
Almost 98% of the product reviews were positive. As of today, there are 3 available units left from the store. Check the listing here. The seller also has the 1" version of the same product with 10 units available as of this blog post. You can see the details here.

The cheapest one I saw before this purchase was a Tigi Bed Head Curlipops Curling Wand sold for a reasonable price of Php1700. As of today, it is still for sale. View the item here. It looks like this:

My next target: a big-ass curling iron. The biggest one I know of is from
Hot Tools which has a 2" barrel. In doesn't look really big in the picture, but trust me IT DOES. I plan on using this product on the lower 1/3 portion of the hair (when sectioned), then use the Con Air curling iron for the other 2/3.
