Review: Corioliss Clipless Curling Wand

Happy Monday!!!

We are well into the new year -- I hope 2012 is starting out splendidly for you guys! :)

One of the most memorable things about 2011 for me was getting my own curling wand, courtesy of John from www.misikko.com -- and it's not just any regular curling iron... I got a ceramic clipless curling wand, one of their top sellers!

Check out their website -- they have excellent Blow Dryers (read my review here) and Flat Irons.
You can also check out their HANA products. :)

Okay, now let's talk about the Corioliss Clipless Curling Wand!

Photobucket

I was very excited to receive my package because not only was I gonna get what I'm sure is an amazing product, I also knew that our friends over at Misikko put in a lot of awesome goodies on the side... and I was right! ;)

So, under all those cute stuff was my curling wand:

Photobucket

The 18mm wand lets you curl, wave, or flip your hair into amazing styles. The simple effective design guides the hair for perfect curl formation, giving beautiful results every time.

- Tourmaline infused ceramic barrel emits far infrared heat technology to lock in moisture.
- Heat proof glove is included in package.
- Fast heat up time and high temperature performance.
- Negative ion technology eliminates static -- resulting in hair that is soft, silky, and shiny.
- Professional 360 degree swivel cord
- Clipless design -- not like other traditional curling irons
- 1 Year Warranty

The description and information from the website (provided above) are all accurate.

Photobucket

The swivel cord makes it easy to maneuver.
The switch button is very simple -- just press it to turn off or on.

Because it's very simple, there aren't any temperature controls.
There is only one temperature, and it is very hot.
As it said above, the curling wand heats up very fast -- be very careful, you don't want to burn yourself!

Because it's clipless, it's a bit of a struggle to keep hair wrapped around the wand.
But you'll get used to it eventually, plus there is a heat proof glove included.

Photobucket

This is for the hand you'll use to keep hair in place.
At first I was a bit scared that I'd still get burned, but this glove really is heat proof. ;)

I used a soft cloth to clean the wand after it cooled down -- I think it's better to clean it after every use to make sure no residue sticks to the ceramic wand. 
(They also sell an iron cleaner for $9.99, if you'd prefer to get that.)

I took before and after photos for you guys! :)

Here is my hair before it was curled:

Photobucket

I half air-dried, half blow-dried my hair.
And I applied HANA Shine Shield Thermal Protectant Hair Serum (review to come soon!).

Here is my hair after curling:

Photobucket

I loved it!
The curls are soft, smooth, and shiny.
They are defined, but not stiff -- just exactly how I like it.
(After curling, I run my fingers through the curls to loosen them a bit.)

My hair normally goes back to being straight very quickly (unless I put tons of hairspray on), but not with this one... even though I only put a little bit of hairspray on, the curls lasted throughout the day (and remained nice until the next day!).

Final Verdict: The quality of the curling iron is amazing, really really excellent!
They are originally sold for $130, but they are currently on sale for only $99.99!
If you've been thinking of buying a clipless curling wand, this is a really good one to get (and it's on sale!).
For $99.99, you will get an amazing curling wand and tons of extra goodies on the side.

I absolutely love my clipless curling wand, it's something that I am definitely gonna use until it stops working. ;)

Have you tried the Corioliss Clipless Curling Wand? Is it something you might want to try?
What brand and model is your current curling iron?

I hope you are all having a fantastic week!

  22. I'm in a desperate need of a new blow drier and flat iron but even at $100 this is a hefty price tag. I've learned that price matters only up to a certain point. I do love what it did for you though - your hair looks absolutely incredible :)

The heatproof glove is brilliant!
