Angelbubbles Spoon Rest Holder

Hello readers,

Most of you are aware of the fact that I absolutely love reviewing and testing products. But very few of you must be aware that I am a passionate food blogger as well. I also have a food blog where I share my tried tested and self-created recipes with the world. Duties of a food blogger requires spending ample time in the kitchen which I do. Most of the time would find me in the kitchen trying new dishes and experimenting with new ingredients. But my duties don’t end here. I am also a mother so have to look after the needs of my daughter, as well as prepare the setup to capture stunning photos of the dishes to showcase on my food blog, along with working my magic in the kitchen.

With so many things to take care of simultaneously, often my mind wanders off and I end of placing cooking spoons/ladles on the kitchen counter. With turmeric being the most common ingredient in Indian cooking placing the cooking spoon on the kitchen counter or other surfaces stains messing it all over. Furthermore, it also risks mixing of ingredients from two different dishes together which is STRICT NO if you want to create delectable dishes. Angelbubble spoon rest is an answer to this.

PleasingCare Facial Cleansing Replacement Brush Heads

I reviewed PleasingCare Facial Brush system last month, as you all must be remembering. I was prompted to buy it as my skin was losing the glow making me look so much older, and I decided to pamper my aging skin by exfoliating and cleansing it effectively. As the system came with 2 brush heads only (classic and LUXE Cashmere), and as I was looking for something that would help me to care for my body as a whole, not just face, I went ahead and bought PleasingCare Facial Cleansing Replacement Brush Heads.

IMG_1038

These replacement heads come in a set of 4 and are versatile in function. Each brush head is made to cater to needs of different skin types, from Normal, Sensitive, Acne, Large Pores and Oily Skin. I, although, have sensitive dry skin, but it tends to get oily around the T-Zone. Moreover, with increasing age, I have started to notice large pores. With all these concern areas, I am really glad to find that these brush heads will effectively address the needs making my skin look radiant and glowing ! The brushes are color coded and hence you will not have trouble spotting and remembering which brush is meant for what type of skin or purpose.

Here is a quick glimpse into their functionality:
1) Brush head with the gray base: For normal skin
You can use it on face, neck, shoulders, arms, back, hands for a complete care!
2) Brush head with the white base and black/white bristles: For sensitive skin
Can be used for complete care just like the normal skin one!
3) The brush head with green bristles: For acne prone skin
4) The brush head with blue bristles: For deep cleaning

IMG_1039

IMG_1040

IMG_1043

The highlight feature of these brush heads is the velvet-like bristle tips which are textured to provide an ultra-gentle cleansing action. The brush head bristles are made from non-porous, soft elastomeric polyester material resistant to bacterial attachment. It is designed keeping in mind the practical and user-friendly aspect in mind. The bristles are super soft, and gently on skin. The outer bristles are fixed, designed to prevents water splash, simultaneously cleaning the large smooth area such as cheeks, forehead etc. The inner bristles, on the other hand, are the ones that vibrate and work well for small areas such as the nose, and chin. So it has got your full body covered!

IMG_5573

Very easy to removed and replaced. Just hold the brush head with the transparent cover firmly, then push it, simultaneously twisting it clockwise, and pull the head away. No matter how complicated it sounds, when you do it it would be a child’s game. To attach the brush, push it down, simultaneously twisting it in until it snaps into place. Keep in mind to always put the cover onto the brush head whenever removing and replacing it, as it will keep the bristles from getting damaged.

IMG_1045

IMG_1046IMG_1047IMG_1048IMG_1049

I have been using two different brush heads (deep cleaning one + acne one), day and night, daily for the last 4 days, and can’t express how much better my skin feels already. I noticed the difference right after the first cleansing session. My skin felt so much better, relived rather, which is a better way to put it. The oiliness in the T-Zone is not prominent now, and the skin tone is better. My skin is normally dry, and after using the brush I did not experience excessive dryness, which is good…Impressed!

Liectroux Robot Vacuum Cleaner Multifunction

With my super hectic work schedule, my blogging duties that I mostly try to catch up during the night time, and raising a super energetic toddler, I am left with no energy to sweep and mop my house…This may seem like a simple chore to do, but for a person like me who is always on a go trying to catch up on all the fronts, with no energy left at the end, this simple task also seems like a struggle. During the weekends, when I am off from work, I have so many other household chores to take care of that have to put cleaning in the last of my to-do list, and the really is it suffering again. To help me with it, I had been thinking of investing in a robotic vacuum cleaner that coHeld not only sweep my floor, but also would mop it up…Sounds so relaxing!

But, as you all must be aware that robotic vacuums cost a fortune. So, to invest my hard earned money intelligently, I started doing some research on the different robotic vacuums available in the market. After researching thoroughly on few good ones available on amazon, I decided to settle for Liectroux Robot Vacuum Cleaner, based on the features it offers.

61xdRJM5-GL._SL1000_

Made of high quality plastic, this robotic vacuum is circular with the rough dimension of 3 inches (Height) x 12 inches (Diameter). The vacuum cleaner is appealing to look at, and the construction of the body appears very solid so far. I have been using it for over a week now, and it has been bumping around things a lot, but, so far, I have not seen even a little scratch on it, which is indicative of its solid construction. On the top of the unit there is a LCD Monitor that serves as a sort of control panel. The LCD monitor helps you to set the vacuum as per your need, giving you visual feedback about the settings. Down below on the display you can find three function keys UV, Auto, Spot, that can be set accordingly based on what tasks you are wanting to achieve.

As this robotic cleaner comes across things, and sometimes may even bump into objects during routine cleaning, so to reduce the impact of the bump there is a half moon shaped light touch bumper on the front portion that also serves as a sort of object sensor. This sensor, as I have seen, is not very sensitive at all times, hence does not necessarily prevent the vacuum from bumping into objects, therefore it has been taken care of to reduce the impact of the bump as much as possible.

Like all robotic vacuum models this also moves around using two drive wheels, and you can adjust the speed of its movement in all the modes: Rate 1 means high speed, and Rate 2 means low speed. There is a motor to generate suction and to rotate brushes to sweep/push debris towards the suction to achieve effective cleaning, just like in any other normal vacuum cleaner. The back of the device is equipped with the collection container, which are easy to take out and put on.

There are 3 modes available that this robotic cleaner can function on. In all the modes, you have the flexibility to set the speed. In addition, the UV lamp can be used in any mode that will superficially kill the germs thereby Sterilizing the floor.

614SB4xBcxL._SL1000_

Modes:

-AUTOMATIC CLEANING MODE or ZIG ZAG CLEANING MODE: It switches between Spot Cleaning Mode, SPIRAL Cleaning Mode and Edge Cleaning mode.
In automatic mode, the vacuum cleaner function as long as its battery works, and when it dies then it moves back to its charging station.

-SPOT CLEANING MODE: Spot Cleaning Mode where it will move in spiral outwards direction to rapidly clean the area until clean. There is a dust sensor built-in the vacuum intake passage way to determine if the area is dirty. In this mode the robot will vacuum around extent of the 1.5meter .

-EDGE CLEANING MODE: In this mode the vacuum moves along the perimeter of the room thereby cleaning the edge of the walls thoroughly.

-SPIRAL CLEANING MODE: In this mode the vacuum moves in spiral motion, but unlike the spot on mode where it moves outward in spiral motion, it moves in inward direction. Once it finish one spiral motion, it moves to another spot and so on.

I love how simple and easy it is to use and configure. The most intriguing part is that its totally automatic. You do not need to be around to supervise while its doing the job. It can totally work on its own based on how you configure it. I set it up to do the cleaning at the time when I am not at home, and I come back to sparkling clean home when back from work. In case it runs down of battery, it search for the docking station for charging automatically…wow!

The cleaning brush is pretty effective and effectively pushes whatever debris comes in contact with the cleaner inside. There is also a mop pad located just behind which can be used to mop the room. At times, long hairs tend to get tangled in the brush motor. So try to check for it every now and then and clean it right away if you find any.

Things to keep in mind when using Liectroux Robot Vacuum Cleaner:

* Be sure to clean up the area of any small objects, mats or toys lying around that the vacuum can bump into. This will help to reach the vacuum to its full potential.

* The vacuum is not capable of working on stairs. It can neither climb up nor come down the stairs.

* It will not work in total darkness as its sensors won’t function properly.

I am one of the few people who have had the chance to try quite a few different products offered by a company named “XTAVA“. This company was created by women and it focusses on beauty tools that deliver the latest in technology and design. All their products are of high quality, but the real beauty lies in their affordable price range.

Today, I am going to be talking about one very unique beauty tool that not only rocks performance wise, but is also so elegantly designed which makes it my my favourite.

It not only dries your hair faster, but also minimizes over drying and hence minimizing the damage caused to hair by the heat.

IMG_5765

In comparison to my older Revlon 1200 hair dryer, Xatava Anemone, with its powerful 1875 W motor, helps to dry my hair faster letting me achieve the salon-worthy results 80% quicker.

IMG_5761

The uniqueness of this blow dryer lies in the beautiful pink flower pattern in the air intake filter. This gives the dryer a feminine touch and enhances the beauty of it! The swivel cord is thick and long, giving me the freedom to move around while working on my hair, without having to turn my dryer or adjust it’s position…So convenient to use!

The dryer offers 3 heat settings and 2 speed settings to choose from depending on your hair texture and quality. This feature makes the dryer fit the needs of people with different kinds of hair, and not restrict the use to some particular class. The cool shot button is one of my favourite features. It really works wonders by giving out a burst of cool air when pressed. You can use it at the end, when you are almost done styling, and it “seal” in your hairstyle and prevent frizz. No one can stop you from looking gorgeous!

IMG_5758IMG_5759

PleasingCare Sonic Rechargeable Skin Care Facial Cleansing Brush

Cleansing and exfoliating skin effectively is an integral part my daily skin ritual which I have been following religiously, ever since I stepped into my 30’s. After all, the real struggle of keeping the sign of aging at bay, and making the skin beautiful and radiant, starts soon after you hit the mark on 25-30. If you fall into this group, you would understand better what I am talking about!

So, to pamper my skin, I have been putting my hard earned money into buy the best cleansers, exfoliators, and scrubs,  but sadly, even with all the money and efforts I have been putting, my skin tends to break out every now and then.  I have had a hard time figuring where was I lacking or what was I doing wrong!

Last week, at my friends party, I met her aunt who also happens to be a beautician. While we were getting to know each other, she noticed the redness all over my face and asked me about it. When I told her about my skin condition, she told me to invest in a good quality facial brush, rather than relying on the hands to do the cleaning. She educated me how a cleansing brush does an excellent and way better job of deep cleansing and exfoliating the skin, in comparison to the standard cleansing method I had been practicing. And, she specifically told me stay away from the cleaning brushes that rely on rotatory motion to do the job, as these kind of brushes are very harsh on skin, and tend to do more harm than doing good.

With all the information she fed into my tiny brain, I started my hunt. I was amazed to find so many different kind soft facial brush available online, and it was really confusing for me to settle for any one. Thanks to the key features, mentioned by my friend’s aunt, I was able to screen few good brushes out of the large available selection. Out of the final selected ones, the one that really intrigued me with the gorgeous appearance was PleasingCare Sonic Rechargeable Skin Care Facial Cleansing Brush.

IMG_5564

IMG_5578

Well written manual with clear concise instructions

Very compact in size, lightweight in design and ergonomic shaped body, PleasingCare is a travel-friendly brush with offers 2 speed vibratory motion. The circular removable brush head features soft bristles that rotate back and forth (sort of vibrating movement). These acoustic vibrations produced creates millions of tiny air bubbles that releases the excess oil, dirt and makeup lodge deep inside the skin that otherwise is hard to take off. The result is unclogged pores, with clean and radiant skin.

IMG_5569

The beauty of the brush lies in its solid construction (kind of heavy duty built). It is made of 100% safe non-toxic environmental protection material. The brush head bristles are made from non-porous, soft elastomeric polyester material resistant to bacterial attachment. It is designed keeping in mind the practical and user friendly aspect in mind. The outer bristles are fixed, designed to prevents water splash, simultaneously cleaning the large smooth area such as cheeks and forehead. The inner bristles, on the other hand, are the ones that vibrate and work well for small areas such as nose, and chin. So it has got your full face covered!

IMG_5573IMG_5574

To make the brush waterproof, Japanese ABS Waterproof glue and sonic welds have been used. Hence it would be totally safe even if you end up dropping it in sink full of water. Not that I am asking you to literally do it, but if it happens by accident then you will have peace of mind with this information.

IMG_5571IMG_5570IMG_5573

You all must be wondering how the bristles can reach deep into the skin to work their magic. Well, the bristles of the brush head are thinner than human hair, and so can easily penetrate deep into the skin to deep clean it. Each brush has more than 52,000 bristles, that do a wonderful job of reaching deep and cleaning the skin effectively.

The brush is very simple to use, and comes with two different brush heads (1 Classic + 1 LUXE 100% Cashmere). I prefer to use the cashmere brush head as it i so gently on skin and pampers my skin really well. The brush heads can easily be removed and replaced. Just hold the brush head with the transparent cover firmly, then push it, simultaneously twisting it clockwise, and pull the head away. No matter how complicated it sounds, when you do it it would be a child’s game. To attach the brush, push it down, simultaneously twisting it in until it snaps into place. Keep in mind to always put the cover onto the brush head whenever removing and replacing it, as it will keep the bristles from getting damaged.

IMG_5575IMG_5567

You can turn it ON/OFF by pressing the power button , and push the UP/DWON BUTTON to adjust the vibration speed. The most intriguing feature is its inductive charging technology. It is charged using a high-frequency energy field without the need of any charging cables…How convenient! To charge it, just position the charging pod (included), over the charging area (located on the brush handle) so that they align well. Now, plug the charging pod adapter to power outlet and viola…You will see indicator light blinking to indicate charging. I love how pretty the light blue indicator light looks when blinking!

Lets talk about how well the brush worked for me: I have been using this brush, day and night, daily for the last 4 days, and can’t express how much better my skin feels already. The noticed the difference right after the first cleansing session. My skin felt so much better, relived rather, which is a better way to put it. The redness on my face is almost gone, and the skin tone is better. My skin is normally bit dry, and after using the brush I did not experience excessive dryness, which is good.

IMG_5576

Comes with a cute pink carry bag 

IMG_5577

And a pink headband

In comparison to the tradition cleaning method, I was able to clean the makeup more easily. To compare the results, I cleaned my makeup the normal way and then used this brush and I was able to find my foundation on the brush head. This really opened my eyes and I realized who effectively this brush dose the job. Not only does it cleanse, but it also exfoliate the skin getting rid of the dead cells to make your skin come to life. As it opens up the clogged pores, the serums and creams I use after cleaning are absorbed better, and hence deliver more effective results.

With just 4 days of use, my skin has improved and appears to be more radiant than ever. As for the reduction in finer lines or other anti-aging benefits, I would have to come back and update my post after I have used the brush for at least a month, as such results cannot be expected to show in just few days of use.

Things to keep in mind when using PleasingCare Sonic Rechargeable Skin Care Facial Cleansing Brush:

1) Pull your hair back with the headband to prevent the cleanser from getting into your hair.

2) After each use, remove the brush head, wash the brush head and body directly with water from the tap, and then place it in ventilated place to dry it.

3) Always put the transparent cover back on the brush head to keep the bristles from getting damaged.

4) Never share the brush head you use with other person to avoid irritation, skin breakout etc.

XTAVA Allure 2200W Professional Ionic Ceramic Hair Dryer

A good quality hair dryer can prove to be women’s best companion for life, especially for women like me, who loves her beauty sleep so much that she hangs on to her pillow as much as possible in the morning. This lazy habit, results in me waking up just 20-25 minutes, before going to work. And, in these 20-25 minutes it’s almost like a battle field to be fought by me, making breakfast, getting ready, getting my kiddo all geared up for day care, leaving me with no time to air dry my hair, before I can style them. The only thing that helps me with the struggle is my hair dryer.

I have been using hair dryer as a part of my regular hair styling routine for the past few years, and have tried a number of different brands to find the one that would work best for me. And, over the years have realized, that the right hair dryer can make styling hair simple, fun and effortless, without damaging your hair in the process.

IMG_5506IMG_5507

The XTAVA Allure 2200W Professional Ionic Ceramic Hair Dryer is one of the finest quality hair dryer I have come across till date. It is lightweight and provides 2200 watts of power that makes styling and drying my hair almost effortless. I have never felt so confident with using any other hair dryer. It’s like I have developed a trusting relationship with this dryer and can count on it to take care of my styling needs anytime, without a doubt in my mind. Allure lets me dry/style my hairs faster than other dryers, and saves me a lot of time to take care of other stuff.

You all most be wondering and curious to know what is so different about Allure that I am singing songs in its praise.

Well, here is the answer to all your questions!

Why Allure stands out to me:

1) It’s sleek, lightweight and ergonomic design, lets you comfortably hold the dryer in hand while working through your hairs. This lightweight design makes styling your hairs super easy. Now remember, when I say lightweight, I mean in comparison to the size it’s pretty lightweight. You would find other hair dryers lighter (in smaller size) than Allure in the market, but they won’t be so powerful to do the job in a breeze.

IMG_5508

2) It uses the latest Tourmaline ionic ceramic technology for an effortless styling experience, and works by emitting powerful negative ions that seal and smooth the hair’s outer layer while helping to reduce frizz and increase shine for more natural looking, healthy and hydrated hair. It not only dries your hair faster, but also minimizes over drying and hence minimizing the damage caused to hair by the heat.

3) You can get bouncy hair, full of volume with Allure’s ultra-powerful 2200W professional level motor. With it being so powerful, you can achieve the salon-worthy results 80% faster.

Prior to using Allure, I was using Revlon hair dryer with 1200watt power, and cant express how much it took to style my hair using it. It did not smooth out my hairs and the result was untidy, frizzy hair.

4) Comes with a concentrator nozzle that helps to direct the condensed air flow exactly where you need it, thus controlling frizzing of hair…Very essential to achieve salon-worthy look!

5) It has 3 heat settings and 2 speed settings to choose from depending on your hair texture and quality. This feature makes the dryer fit the needs of people with different kinds of hair, and not restrict the use to some particular class.

6) It has a unique cool shot button that gives out a burst of cool air when pressed. You can use it at the end, when you are almost done styling, and it “seal” in your hairstyle and prevent frizz. No one can stop you from looking gorgeous!

Now, nothing is perfect in this world, and so is this hair dryer. There are few off putting aspects, very minor,  but  worth mentioning here:

  1. The flippable control switches are prone to getting hit accidentally,  while you are using the dryer. Can be frustrating at times!
  2. Heat setting is too hot, or you can even say the dryer is too powerful which can be counted in both as pro and cons, depending on your hair quality. And for my thin hair, it is better to put it in the cons list.

While there are some flaws, but the positive features are so many which makes this dryer worth purchasing. The sleek, attractive design looks just like the professional dryers that I see being used in salons. The performance, beyond doubt, makes this dryer stand out over the others available in the market.

DBPOWER Magnetic Block Set

Very unique and innovative blocks, based on the concept of traditional building blocks, but even more interesting and fun to play with. It will helps your kids to master the skills that lay stronger foundation for a long time learning in all subjects, especially science and maths.

IMG_5514

My daughter, who is just 4, is head-over-heels in love with this magnetic block set. Before it’s arrival, she used to spend hours playing games or watching videos on iPad, but now she is so engaged with these blocks that she has hardly time to open her iPad, which is great! The blocks are so attractive with blight colors. Kids like them even more as, in comparison to the traditional blocks, these offer a nice change and who doesn’t like change?? huunnnn!

IMG_5515IMG_5516

The first question that popped into my head when these arrive was “Are they safe for kids?”. Well, I was pleased to read they they are! Made of food grade plastic they are totally safe for kids. Even if they end up putting it in mouth no harm will come to them. The ARC Edge design ensures that kids doesn’t hurt themselves while playing with them.

IMG_5521IMG_5520IMG_5519IMG_5518IMG_5517

IMG_4963

The blocks come in a professionally packed box which is easy to open, hence the packaging is kids friendly. In a set there are 46 pieces: 14 triangle, 20 square, 4 hexagon, 6 number blocks, and 2 wheels. The magnets are very strong and will stick firmly to hold whatever structure your child build with them. Along with it, you also get a 28 page colourful instruction booklet that serves as a guide to help your kids understand how to use the blocks to construct, basic shapes, as well as more complicated 2D and 3D model. Now, remember to buy 2 sets instead of one, if you have a older child who would basically like to focus on 3D construction.

My verdict: I cannot recommend DBPower magnetic blocks enough! These blocks are a great way to lay stronger foundation for future learning. It will also help with spatial and mathematical thinking skills. For younger kids, it will help with shape and color recognition. You would love when your kid would think creatively and put all the imagination to build all sorts or shapes. I almost feel as if all my daughter idea come to life with these magnetic block set!

XTAVA Collapsible Silicone Hair Diffuser for Blow Dryer

I am the kind of person who cherishes the last few minutes of sleep, when you are conscious, but just feel lazy enough to get up. I try to hold on to this as much as possible and the result is me waking up just 20 to 25 minutes before going to work. In these 20-25 minutes, I have to get ready, put together breakfast and get my kiddo ready for day care. OH Gosh…Imagine me struggling with catching up on all the fronts in the morning! This leaves me with no time to let my hairs dry naturally so that I can style them the way I want, and this is when blow drying helps.

I have thin, limpy and curly hairs. Blow drying makes my hairs even drier, difficult to tame, and frizzy! Not only that, but the heat of the blowdryer causes lot of damage, making hairs fragile.  I really wanted something that could give my limpy hairs bit of a volume to enhance the beauty, without causing so much of damage. After all who doesn’t crave for healthy and beautiful locks!

819HTEIQ1kL._SL1500_

I tried XTAVA’S new Collapsible Silicon Hair Diffuser, for over a week, to see if it would help me to manage my hairs without making them frizzy, and fragile. And loved the result it delivered!

It not only decreases frizziness, but also gave them the shine that anyone never miss to notice. I have been getting lots of compliment lately on how healthy and shiny my hairs look! There is a huge difference I have noticed in my look, between when I was using the blow drier alone and now, when I am using Xtava diffuser with the dryer. This diffuser effectively disperses the flow of air coming from the head of the hair dryer, spreading it over a large area, than just concentrating it on a smaller section. Thus, my hairs now, instead of getting blown by the hot blast of air, get to enjoy the gentle air stream that flows through softly, caressing them. The result is less damage, no frizz, but only beautiful manageable locks! My hairs look so natural and full of life!

Apart from its effectiveness to deliver the result, what other feature intrigued me is the COLLAPSIBLE DEISGN. Made of Silicon, this diffuser is flexible and collapses completely flat for convenient space saving. When you need to use it, just pull it up and it extends into a full-size, six-inch, super effective diffuser. This makes it convenient to carry the diffuser when you are travelling. The compact, flat shape easily fits into the side of luggage or even your handbag. It can be used with variety of 6” barrel hair dryers. If you own XTAVA Hair Dryer, then nothing to worry as it fits all xtava hair dryers, except the Rimini.

Overall, this is a good diffuser that offers nice features. If you blow dry your hairs often and are struggling with frizzy, unmanageable hair then this diffuser is worth a try! I can vouch for it!

XTAVA Auto Styler – Professional Auto Rotating Curling Iron with 1.1″ Barrel

What would you answer if I asked you, “What is that one thing that even though might seem simple, yet appears nearly impossible for you to achieve?

Well, for me I would say there are quite a few of them! And out of them, one that may seem easy piesy to others, but I find almost impossible is achieving those perfect curls using a curing rod, which has always made me envy my friends who can do it in a breeze.

I have always struggled with getting the polished curls that I simply adore. The problem seems to be the lack of necessary skills that ones require when using a curling rod. Rolling the hairs in the rod, aligning them perfectly well seems to be just impossible. No matter, how hard I try I fail! Every time, either few strands get left out in the process or simply slide up while the rod is working its magic. And the result is, untidy and unfinished curls. Poor me!

To end up my struggle and make the whole process easier for me, I wanted something that could efficiently do the job of rolling hairs without having me to put in the efforts.

Well, God heard my wish and granted it in the form of XTAVA Curling Rod!

Minimal, Professional Packaging!

XTAVA Curling rod is a well-designed curling rod that seems to work perfect for people like me, who have always had a hard time using one! Very well constructed, light weight design with ceramic tourmaline barrel and 360-degree swivel cord takes care of you and helps you to get the long-lasting shiny curls that would make you talk of the town.

That being said, this is by far, the most efficient and easiest to use curling rod I have come, which won’t be blowing off your pocket at the same time. Obviously, when you go out spending hundreds of dollars for a curling rod, it is without doubt expected to perform well. But, when something that is not very expensive performs beyond expectation it amazes you, and this is the case with XTAVA Curling rod!

You all must be wondering what is so different about Xtava that I am singing song in its praise. Well, I would say it has everything that would make the whole curling business damn easy.

To start with the CERAMIC TOURAMILINE BARREL generates constant and even heat to create long-lasting, shiny curls. The barrel is thick (1.1’) hence perfect to provide body and volume to the curls. It will work well to get the precise look or structure curls. But, if you want to get tight, springy curls then this curling rod is not for you!

I love the 8 FOOT 360-DEGREE SWIVEL CORD that solves the struggle of tangling and out of reach outlets. I can now plug in the curling rod into the outlet behind my dresser and work on my hair while looking into the mirror, which previously was not possible as my older curling rod cord was short, hence not able to extend up to the dresser mirror. Furthermore, the 360-degree swivel cord lets you use the rod in any position without working about the cord getting tangled up. IMPRESSIVE!

The ceramic tourmaline technology used in the rod emits negative ions to counteract the positive ions found in dry hair, sealing moisture into the cuticle and minimizing heat damage. So no more worrying about the damaged caused to your hairs by the heat. XTAVA curling rod will not dry up your hair, and make them frizzy. Instead, it will keep the moisture intact and give your hairs shine. Healthy looking locks are what everyone will notice!

The most amazing and innovative feature is the AUTOMATED BI-DIRECTIONAL ROTATING CONTROL, which is something that works like magic. It takes care of rolling the hair into the barrel to give you perfect curls. Now, with this amazing feature, all you have to do is secure your hair into the BUILT-IN HAIR CLIP, and press the button. Rest will be well taken care by the curling rod itself! WOW! Now, remember it may take some practice to getting use to the automated rotating control. But, once you master it rest everything will fall in place.

The first time I used this feature, I misjudged and pressed the wrong button, which resulted in the rod curling up to my scalp. Thanks to God, I figured it out on time and managed to undo it on time before I burned my scalp.

My hairs are super fine and so I normally style them at low temperature setting. Styling thin hairs at high temperate increase that chances of getting them burned. Now, XTAVA’S AUTO STYLER features 11 temperature stages between 210-430 degrees allowing for accurate heat control for every hair type. I was able to set it to the required temperate as per my hair type and get style them accordingly. The LCD display makes it easier to know when the rod reaches the set temperature.

I have tried to curl my hairs with XTAVA, and have been successful at it. My hairs are shoulder length hence I was not able to get a very finished look with it. The rod is not where to be blamed. My friend who has long hairs was able to get those perfect shiny curls in 10 minutes, which with other curling rods takes about 20-25 minutes. The curling rod heats up real quick and so you do not have to spend lot of time waiting for the rod to reach the desired temperature. This is a very efficient curling rod, which offers so many awesome features that not only helps you to style your hairs, but also lets you do it without putting much effort. I am hooked!

XTAVA Pro-Satin Infrared Straightener – Professional Flat Iron with Tourmaline Ceramic Plates

I cannot express in words how much I adore straight hairs! This is the reason I never liked my natural hair, which are dry, thin, frizzy, and difficult to tame. With this thin texture, I never dared to try flat iron as I believed it would causes more harm than doing any good. The heat of flat iron, as you all must be aware, damages the surface of the hair and causes frizz, making them dry and weak. I did not want to further damage my locks.

I must admit, couple of times, I even thought of getting my hair rebounded, but the thought of all the chemicals used during the process scared the hell out me, so I backed. This was the end of my aspiration!

Recently, I got a chance to review XTAVA Infrared flat iron, which uses the infrared waves to straighnten the hair. I was bit hesitant to accept the opportunity, at first, but upon reading that this straightener locks in natural moisture, protects hair cuticles, and add silkiness and shine that lasts all day, I decided to give it a try.

 Product Description, given on the amazon listing:

Xtava Pro-Satin Infrared Straightener locks in the natural moisture, protecting your hair cuticles, and adding silkiness and shine that will last all day. Regular heat damages the surface of the hair and causes frizz, but far infrared rays work by penetrating the innermost layer of the strands, heating them from the inside out. This means less stress on the cuticle, and healthier hair. Ceramic tourmaline plates use ionic technology that reduces the hair’s surface tension, leaving locks shiny and frizz-free. The Pro Satin also features a temperature regulation function to inhibit burning, and an advanced microprocessor that allows for 10 specific heat settings between 265°F and 445°F. The superior quality ceramic heater enables the flat iron to reach maximum temperature within 90 seconds and allows for quick heat up recovery. The convenient auto-shutoff function will turn off the device when left unattended, so you never have to worry again about rushing out.

I was intrigued, literally got goose bumps, reading this description. This rekindled the desire of getting sleek and beautiful locks, I have always wanted. But, somewhere in my heart I still had my doubts1

The flat iron arrived within days of accepting the offer and the packaging was very neat, and professional. The straignhetener is sleek in design and looks very elegantly stunning. The black body with silver edges lifts up the elegance to yet another level, adding a glamorous touch! Perfect to show off!

It’s light weigh, making it comfortable to hold and work through my hair. Doesn’t strain my hands even a bit! My friend has a flat iron that is so bulky that straightening even few strands of hairs seems to tire the hand, let alone working through your entire hairs.

The plates are made of 100% solid tourmaline ceramic, which uses ionic technology to maintain even heat, from 265 to 445 degrees, and reduce surface tension. The highlight of this straightener is the use of integrated temperature regulator that ensures the temperature you select remains constant and evenly dispersed, inhibiting the potential for burning. Furthermore, the advance microprocessor allows for ten specific settings between the minimum and maximum temperatures. You just have to select the ideal temperature for your unique hair type from ten degrees between 265-445. Now, to find what temperature would work for your hairs, I would suggest starting from the lowest temperature setting and gradually increasing it, until you hit the right spot!

I was amazed to see how quickly the tourmaline ceramic plates heated up, within minutes it was ready to work its magic….wow! To begin with, I divided my hairs into thin section and started working through each sections, and it was in 10 minutes that I was all done…I know its hard to believe, but its true! The pst time I used straightener, an year ago, it literally took me 25 minutes to straighten them out. My hairs, after I was done, looked fantastic…Silky, smooth and shiny! OMG! I was hard to believe that I was able to achieve the salon-done look at home!

Overall, a great and efficient flat iron that won’t damage your hairs as much as regular flat iron do. You would be able to get professional salon-done look at home! The features and efficiency has got me hooked, and I can picture myself using it every now and then without worrying about damaging my locks!
