Review: Irresistible Me Sapphire 8-in-1 Complete Curling Wand

I've been sick for the entire week and it's not fun being trapped at home. However, I took the opportunity to try out the Sapphire 8-in-1 Complete Curling Wand that was sent to me from Irresistible Me! Thank you!



The kit comes with 8 different curling barrel attachments, a case with separate compartments for each barrel and the wand, a heat resistant glove and a stand to place the wand on when it's not in use.

Who can use it?

Any girl who would like to get their perfect curl/waves on.


What is it?

The curling wand uses tourmaline barrels that are fused with ceramic to easily create smooth curls. The tourmaline material itself contains negative ions which eliminate frizz, lock in moisture, and  provide faster styling. It has a digital LCD temperature display and buttons to control how hot you want the wand to be.

When do I use it?

It's best to use the styling wand on clean, dry hair. I sprayed my hair with a heat protection spray prior to styling (I use the Tresemm√© Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray). 

How do I use it?

Tie up the top layer of your hair. Take small sections of your hair and wind it down the rod. When the entire section is wrapped around the curling wand, hold it briefly for about 10 seconds. Release your hair and it'll be in a curl/wave. After doing all the hair in the lower under layer, release the top layer and style the rest of your hair. When you're finished curling, spray with a hairspray to hold the style for the rest of the day (I use the Tresemmé Tres Two Hairspray).

How much is it?

This curling wand retails for $199 on the Irresistible Me website. They always have special discounts for first time orders or other occassions so you'll be able to get some kind of deal. :)

My thoughts?

I've never owned a curling wand before, so I was never really into styling my hair. If I ever wanted to curl my hair I would always have a friend do it for me with their own wands haha. However, this curling wand was very easy to use. Honestly it was only my second time using a curling wand ever and I was able to achieve decent-looking loose waves! It heats up super fast to the desired temperature and I never have to wait long until it's ready to use (perfect for a day when I don't have too much time on my hands to play with my hair!). I'm excited to try out the other barrels to get different effects on my hair.



I went with the 32mm barrel, the largest one in the set. I wanted to create some loose waves in my hair for a casual but stylish look. I really like the look of wind-tousled, beachy waves that many celebrities and girls on the street are sporting so I recreated that on myself. :)





What a difference from the before and after curling! My hair with the loose waves had more volume and texture, adding dimension and structure to it. It doesn't seem too "put-together" and it indeed is an effortless look. It took me 15 minutes to do all my hair (I have A LOT of hair). Now I can step up my usual air-dried straight hair into something more special and cute! I would definitely recommend this curling wand to friends.

Irresistible Me is not only known for the professional styling tools, but also their natural hair extensions. You can check out their website at irresistibleme.com!

Let me know what you guys think about the look!

Until next time, Des
