One of the many perks of running a blog is that you're given the privilege of owning and reviewing products. I was contacted by Misikko several months ago and offered the chance to review either a hair straightener or a curling wand. I opted for the latter, as I love the look of curls and need to perfect my technique. Now I'm hooked!
The Corioliss Curling Wand is very sleek and convenient to use. It came with a glove to protect me from heat, plus a wrap to contain the wand. It's not at all bulky and it stores easily in small spaces. I keep it under my bathroom sink. I have a plethora of hair straighteners and an old curling iron I never got the hang of, and they're all bulky and take up way too much room. This curling wand is simple to store.
My favorite feature of this wand is how quickly it heats! It was hot within 15 seconds! Now, I'm not going to lie, I had some help from my sister curling my hair. She'd never used a curling wand before, so at first she was unsure of how to wield it. However, the wand is very manageable and within a matter of minutes she was creating gorgeous, bouncy curls on my head. It looked fantastic! I have a thick mane of hair, but I usually just leave it straight because I'm so uncoordinated with styling my hair. Now that I've seen what this curling wand can do, I think I'm going to be curling my hair more often. My sister got used to it very quickly. It took only about 20 minutes to curl my hair, and that's only because I have A LOT (enough for two people!) of hair. I'm sure it would be a shorter process for many people.
I love this curling iron. I can't say enough good things about it. The wand does get VERY hot, but the glove helps protect your skin and the wand is so sleek and not at all cumbersome that you aren't likely to burn yourself.
I give this wand 4 stars!
Pros: light, easy to use, heats quickly, creates beautiful curls, inexpensive
Cons: could result in bad burns if you're careless with it
Thank you to Misikko for the opportunity to own and review this amazing styling tool. I would recommend this to anyone and it's a great product at a great price!
