Before having this gadget in my life, I own one other curler. I loved it but it didn't give me a lot of variety to work with. I always lust over girls with effortless waves and now I can create my own! Actually, I can create all kinds of curls with the Irresistible Me Sapphire 8 in 1 Complete Curler. Hashtag curly hair don't care!
Before getting into the review, just a little disclaimer. Even though I'm wearing the same top, I did curl my hair on three different days. I decided to put on the same top cause I'm a bit particular like that and a tad of a perfectionist. Okay I admit, sometimes I am an outfit repeater...
Irresistible Me is well known for their hair extensions, but they also sell hair accessories, hair care products, and of course hair tools such as the Sapphire Curler. The curler comes in a box (pictured below) which to me, the design isn't very appealing or attractive. Then again, it's what on the inside that counts!
Everything is stored neatly in the faux leather roll-up pouch. Inside the pouch, there are of course the wand with the 8 barrels attachments, a heat resistant glove which I don't use (but I really should) cause I'm a rebel, and a little stand for the wand.
I really like the royal blue on the base of the wand. Not only that, I like that it has a lock system so that when you're curling your hair the wand doesn't fall off. It has a little LED display that shows the temperature. You can also convert Fahrenheit to Celcius and it has a swivel cord so the cord won't get tangled up easily, which I thought was really thoughtfully designed.
The wand heats up in less than 15 seconds- impressive! It's also helpful that the green LED lights up to show that the wand is heated up, and it will start blinking blue when it is off or cooling down. The red light will come on when the wand is not attached properly.
Irresistible Me- "This curling wand is extremely versatile and every barrel will create a different type of curl: tight perm like curls, ringlet curls, spirals curls, ribbon curls, flick curls, large and bouncy curls, beach or wavy curls and finger wave type curls that will hold for ages."
The 25mm wand gives a very loose and natural waves. You can also create tight curls with using this wand by only using small sections of hair. It's great for that everyday effortless curls and it takes only 10 mins to achieve! I really like this wand!
I am able to achieve tight curls with this wand. Va va voom!
I totally failed with using the pearl wand. When used "correctly", it should give you the most natural looking tight curls. As you can see from the above picture, I got the opposite result. That's purely my fault though cause I'm a noob. I actually don't mind the waves I achieved with the pearl wand. To achieve the look, simply grab big sections of hair and then spontaneously wrapped it around the wand. You'll achieve a more messy natural waves which I think will look great if you have shorter hair.
This product retails for $199USD which I think is pretty reasonable as you get not one but EIGHT barrels to play around with. Irresistible Me ships internationally and free shipping on orders over $150. That's not all if you are a first-time purchaser, you can get 20% off your order with the code GET20OFF.
This product comes with many great features that will make your life so much easier. No need to head to the hairdresser, you can create different looks/curls at the comfort of your own home! These wands are quite versatile and you can experiment with different barrels to create a variety of hairstyles. It's a little bulky for travelling, but you can always pick a couple of your favourite wands and take along with you. Overall, two thumbs up for this curler!
Which type of curls do you like to sport? Tight curls/ wavy/beachy curls/ big bouncy curls?
