This month I was so lucky to have been contacted by Misikko about reviewing a flat iron and sharing it with my readers! There's even one available to a lucky winner in a future post!
I received the Corioliss Classic Pro Flat Iron 1"
It's boastable features:
-Adjustable heat: 140-410 degrees
-Ceramic heat plates
-A swivel cord
-1 Year Warranty
I've been using the straightening iron nearly everyday now and it definitely is a step up from my basic "bought it on sale the devastating day my good one broke" from the local store.
I love the adjustable heat so that I don't damage my hair, it's good for the variety of hair types because of that- coarse, fine, thick, etc. Much better than the "on" or "off" heat setting my old straightener had.
Don't ever let anyone tell you that ceramic heat plates don't make a difference, because listen sisters- it does! My hair feels so much silkier now! That was the biggest shock for me. I've never owned a high end flat iron before, but now I don't know if I could go back. Honestly, I really don't think I could.
Another great aspect of the straightener is its really long cord that actually swivels like it's supposed to so you don't end up with a screwy cord that keeps wrapping up into itself which annoys the crap out of me!
Most of the straighteners I've owned have been 2" plates so I've never been able to create curls using a flat iron. With this 1" iron I'm learning how. I'm not a pro yet though, so I'll have to do a post about that once I am. Any tips for doing that?
I also received the Heat Proof Pouch which is a must have for me (and now I don't have to make myself one with my left over scraps from my Christmas project last year- yay!) because it allows me to pack up and go without having to wait for the iron to cool down or worry about it melting/burning/starting a fire to something in my bag.
(Here's what it looked like when I got it, so cute!)
If you're in the market for a new hair tool, whether it's a Chi Flat Iron or a best blow dryer I definitely suggest checking out Misikko's website to find discounted quality and name brand items with free shipping. I know I'll be using them in the future for sure, especially after this positive experience.
I'll be publishing the giveaway post this week so check back!
What kind of a flat iron do you use? What would you recommend? Any disaster buys?
