{review} Irresistible Me's Sapphire 8 in 1 Curling Wand

*Irresistible Me gifted the curling wand, but all opinions are my own.*

Lately I've been trying to curl my hair with less than desirable results. That is, until I received Irresistible Me's Sapphire 8 in 1 complete curling wand. The wand comes in a carrying case with a heat resistant glove and eight interchangeable barrels. The wand is a bit pricey at $199, but if you curl your hair a lot and want different options for sizes this is a great investment.

The site does a great job of describing the barrels so I'll just steal from that: "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."

I only used the 19mm barrel so far, but I imagine the other seven are great as well! I still haven't mastered the art of the curling wand, but I found this pretty easy to use. It's going to take some practice to get the technique down, but once that happens I'll be a curling master!

What I Liked:
  • Super easy to change barrels and they lock nicely in place with a twist of the base
  • Glove - I am TERRIFIED of burning myself, so the glove gave me peace of mind 
  • The stand is perfect for resting the wand on while I'm busy getting my next section of hai
  • Swivel Cord - I don't have to worry about the cord getting tangled when I'm moving the wand all over the place as I learn to use it properly 
  • Green LED when wand is heated up and blinking blue when it is off/cooling down. No more wondering!
Mixed Feelings:
  • Fairly compact carrying case. Still a little bulky if you are going to travel with it, but great for home storage
What I Didn't Like:
  • Price - although I didn't actually have to pay for it myself I do have to keep that in mind. As someone who isn't the best at doing my hair I wouldn't have spent this much for a product where I will only use a few of the barrels. BUT having said that - if you are someone who loves experimenting with your hair this is definitely worth the buy!
As you can see, the pros far outweigh the cons! I would definitely recommend this product for girls who love to play with different styles of curls. Now for some amusing photos of me attempting to use my Sapphire curling wand!

  1. It is pricey but it does a great job of keeping the curls it seems. Love the idea of the glove!

  2. I actually think the price is reasonable, especially bc you get 8 barrels. I have one that has 4 and it was double that! I am not a fan of the blue color but thats being picky, I know. I agree though that some of the barrels would not get used. Great review girl!

  6. I agree with you, I think this is good for the girl who has longer hair and like's to play with different styles. But your girls do look super glossy and amazing!
