Gurin Flat Iron

I don't know about you but I used to think all flat irons were created equal. I mean how different can to hot plates be? Well I learned the hard way they are not all created equal and you get what you paid for. I am somewhat of a cheapskate and feel the less I can spend on something, the better. So I had a flat iron from WalMart and was really happy with it for a while. It worked my hair would be straight after I ran it through my hair a few times.

Then it went out and I was in the market for another one. My friend said her aunt was a beautician and could get me a good deal on a professional flat iron. So of course I told her awesome, please have her order me one. Well that good deal turned out to be over $100 -- not so cheap in my opinion. But I will not complain the flat iron worked well for a long time.

When I was chosen to review the Gurin Flat Iron I was SOOO excited.  I just received a flat iron for Christmas because my other one was going out and this one was not in any way a professional styling tool. The handle of the Gurin is very nicely made and the controls are very easy to use. There is a red light that comes on when the iron is heating up and a green light when the iron is done.

It has temperatures easily adjusts between 240F - 450F. The 1.25 inch ceramic/ tourmaline plates  help air stay shinier and silkier than other materials.

It comes in a heat proof bag which I LOVE because all I do it unplug the flat iron and stick it in the bag to cool off. No more worrying about where I can put it so it doesn't burn my house down.

I have used the Gurin Flat Iron numerous times and I have to say I'm very impressed. Not only does it straighten my hair with one or two passes (that saves damage right there) but I also noticed my hair is not frizzy at all. I didn't realize a flat iron had anything to do with frizz but I guess it does. My hair looks amazing with no flyaways even before any products.

Just to give you a comparison

A different flat iron 

As you can see that's a BIG difference. So not only does Gurin Flat Iron make my hair straighter it keeps it that way longer.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Modere review and GIVEAWAY

Modere is safe made sexy. They offer a category- leading portfolio of lifestyle essentials like personal care, health, and wellness. Plus house hold products that are equal parts safe, high performing, and beautifully designed. The formulas are proven and tested and have been trusted by customers around the world for more than 25 years.  Modere products are safe for you and your family because they are not laden with harsh chemicals.

Normally I notice packing but it it normally not a focus in a review unless it is unique. At Modere they believe in the importance of having a personal touch. What they create is art - from the colors to the chemistry.  I would agree all of their products are very attractive and easy to display in you home. They are all simple, yet eloquent and would match any color scheme.

I love the color schemes of the products the body care I chose has a black and white color scheme with a hint of mauve.  The hand soap is a simple dispenser that is very cutely designed. I was happy to display it on my bathroom counter. I noticed all of the products have a very similar clean, fresh smell that is not overwhelming.  Both the hand soap and body wash have very appealing scents that make you want to use them, the smells clean and fresh and is not overwhelming.  They both lather very nicely
and makes my skin feel super clean without leaving a soap residue.

The lotion is a medium consistency and smells light and fresh as well. I love that in  lotion because if the smell is too strong I get a headache. This one goes on light and airy as well. It absorbs in seconds and hydrates my skin. It is a firming lotion so I use only on the parts that need firming, you know my entire body. It does make a noticeable difference in my skin using a firming lotion compared to a regular lotion so if you have never tried one I would recommend giving it a try.

It took me a while to decide what I wanted to review because Modere has tons of other products that look amazing.
