Purchased this when I saw it on sale for $36 last Christmas. I've always wanted this particular style of curler as it doesn't have the clips and thought it would be easier to use. This came with:instructions, a finger glove (to protect your fingers from getting burnt, which I haven't yet used) and a cosmetic pouch to store additional hair or jewellery accessories (which I will probably never use but is nice as a freebie)
Love the look of this. Rose gold so looks current and stylish. As for the dial system (setting the heat) I still don't understand it. Says it heats up 205 degrees, with 30 heat settings but the dial system on the wand goes up in increments ( 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30) I still don't get it.
Besides that, I selected 20 as I didn't want to burn my hair off like those terrible Youtube videos. This setting was more than enough for my thick, long, curvy/wavy hair. I straightened my hair before hand then used this curling wand afterwards to get precise uniform curls.
Does it work? Yes! So much better than I imagined. Especially for the price I thought it wouldn't but it works beautifully. Curls looked stunning. My technique leaves room for improvement but I loved the look, it was beautiful. Definitely think a holding spray would have aided in it lasting longer but other than that i'm super stoked with this item.
Highly recommend, affordable, with results. Would make a lovely gift for yourself or someone else in your life.
