I'm currently watching the sun set over Paris/the eiffel tower and painting my nails in Sephoras 'picnic in the park' :) Stew and I are just relaxing in the hotel tonight after 3 long, hot days and walking about 500 miles... I thought whilst we had free wifi in the Hotel I might as well write you a review ;)
Meet my not-really-new-anymore babies! My StyleRush hair straighteners :)
I was sent these little beauts quite some time ago but I was in the middle of trying to finish my degree so never had time to write my review! I was sent the Standard Styler in White and Orange, secretly I was wishing for the pink ones but actually, the orange is a nice change from everything-pink-and-hello-kitty in my bedroom! These retail at £79.99 which is an incredible price for how fabulous they are :)
The straighteners feature an extra long swivel cord, a heat guard, 'dual adaptor' plug so you can take them on holiday, a travel pouch (in the top photo) and they have a 2 year warranty. They're switched on by a basic on/off switch which is shown above and a little red LED light flashes when they're hot.
In my opinion the heat guard is what sets these straighteners way ahead of any others I own! I'm safe in the knowledge that I can just chuck them down when I'm dashing out of the house and they won't burn or melt anything (as long as the heat guard ison, obviously!). Others straighteners such as the Cloud 9 ones have a heat guard but they're over £100 and in my experience (having used my friends Cloud 9's for 6 days and HATING THEM), don't perform as well as they StyleRush ones. Proof that the most expensive brand aren't always the best brand!
I am absolutely obsessed with these straighteners, to date I have 4 pairs. A pair of GHD midnight deluxe gold stylers (£150!), a pair of BIG EGO irons (£130), my StyleRush stylers (£80) and a pair of FHI's that cost me £60 from Sallys.
Since receiving the StyleRush straighteners a while back, I haven't taken my GHD's out of the basket I store all of my hair tools in! Shocking isn't it! I just haven't reached for them at all!
In ALL of the images of me on my blog with my hair straight, I've styled my hair with the StyleRush straighteners. They keep my hair smooth, frizz free and perfectly straight but don't damage my hair as much as my other straighteners. I've also found that when using my StyleRush straighteners my hair stays straight for MUCH longer than normal and doesn't go kinky at the ends like it usually would when I've used my GHD's.
At £80 these are absolutely ASTOUNDING for the amount you pay, I honestly couldn't live without mine now and I don't ever really want to go back to my GHD's or EGO straighteners.. I can't think of any brand that challenges the quality of these, like I said I've tried Cloud 9's (hated themmmm) and have GHD's and other brands! Nothing compares to my gorgeous StyleRush straighteners :)
Its very, very rare that I rave about a product this much so you can trust my opinion on how fab thes are! If I really had to change one thing, it would be the lack of heat control, these would be an 11/10 if I could choose what heat I wanted them on :) ♥
Do you have a pair of StyleRush straighteners? Are you interested in trying them? I loveeeeeeeee them!
