Product Review: Chill & Hot Ceramic Flat Iron

Price: 5/5 (Since I bought in Ebay, I got it for $10.99 but the original price for this is $29.99 with free shipping)
Packaging: 4/5 (it's very neat, hot pink case, bubble wraped, with instructions & free small Chi Infusion :D
Result: 4/5 (It heats up quickly, and works to make curl as well, the curl is soft and bouncy, depending on how much hair you do each part, the less hair you use, the curlier it gets)
Overall: 5/5

Right after I plugged it in, I turned it on by pressing the on/off button, and hold it until there's something show up in the tiny monitor. First it's just showing "Lo" as in Low temperature, so I pressed the + button to increase the heat, the temperature is in Celsius, ranges from 140'C til 200'C, believe me, that's hot enough for your hair.

If you want to curl your hair, you can search them on youtube on how to curl with your flat iron, so many girls made a vid already so I think it'd be old if I made a one LOL. One thing I noticed, you need to be careful since the head gets hot so during the process if you need to touch it, make sure you be more careful.

- Gets hot REALLY quick (i counted it, only takes 10 secs the most! so I didn't have to wait too long to start)
- Love the double functions
- It's pretty small and light, so it doesn't wear your arms out
- Love the color ^_^
- Love the result, and the best of all,

- The fact that the head gets hot, so I couldn't twist the iron as quick as I wanted
- While I'm twisting the iron to make curls, I mistakenly pressed the buttons on the surface couple of times, either the (+) or (-) button LOL so the temperature went high-low-high-low, but it's not a big deal. The on/off button was made specifically to prevent that, I supposed, coz in order to turn on/off you need to click and hold the button a little longer.
- The wire coulda been longer

The finished look (don't mind the no-eyes MOST WANTED pic LOL)
I didn't do it neatly, I have to admit, coz I just wanted to try it out, but I like how it turned out in the end, loose and bouncy :D Not bad, right?

I know, I asked the seller if it's supposed to be that cheap, he said it's should be the starting price for bidding but he mistakenly placed it on "Buy Now" price..i guess i was pretty lucky huh? and yeah the pink is really cute..not like 'wow in your face' pink... ^_^
