I decided to buy this hairdryer rather than a Conair after seeing on Amazon that it was #1 best selling and had about 4.5/5 stars and 315 reviews. I got it for only $12 on sale at Walgreen's and was VERY impressed after using it. Afterwards, I came to review it and was VERY surprised to see the poor reviews. I don't know if you all death-grip your hairdryer (which there really is no reason to do; this is a very lightweight dryer), but I have never turned this off or toggled it once so far. For the heat being too intense, I have fine hair and this did not feel too hot, nor did it burn my hair. (Try using a heat protectant spray, maybe) Now, after I was completely done blowdrying my hair, it was noticeably softer and smoother. The cut in drying time was not noticeable for me, however, I timed and it did reduce my time to 8 minutes from 10. I'm very impressed with this dryer, especially for being less than $25.

Another drying lip stain...
I like how lightweight lip stains are, but most all of them I've used have been VERY drying. This one is no exception. I give it a 5 for color choice, price, and because it comes with lip balm at the end. The lip balm would make the product... if you only had to apply it over the lip stain just once or twice throughout the day. In order for me to keep my lips from drying, cracking, and bleeding, I had to apply it whenever I felt them getting dry which was about every half hour.

After using this, my hair looks fantastic. Volumized and fluffy, but not frizzy or out of control. I can't feel it in my hair after I blowdry it, so my hair remains soft and touchable. I have flat, straight Asian hair and this is a miracle worker for me!

I like the results, but...
I really like the curls that this wand produces, but I found it to be very difficult to use. I have been practicing with it and still burn myself. I don't recommend this if you're clumsy, lazy, and/or don't want to be burnt by a 250+ degree iron. The heat glove that came with it made the iron harder to use and wasn't very effective, so that wasn't a big plus. On the positive side, it is cheaper than the Conair curling wand if you are looking for a wand.

Could be better
I received these as a gift as I have always been very short on time in the morning, so my grandma believed these would be good for me because of their short heat up and such. Well, these do work indeed, but the curl does not last very long, so I must spray my hair quite a bit. I loved the curls that I had right after I took the rollers out though. However, some short layers of mine didn't get a curl so much as a bend. I still liked the effect and the volume imparted by this though. I did not feel the need to go in with a curling iron following this. All in all, these took around 30 minutes for me to use on my fine, layered hair. A somewhat major issue that would prevent me from buying these is that the ends of the rollers get quite hot and it is possible to burn your fingers on them as such. I think I prefer other non-clamp rollers more, but these do get the job done.

This was the first lip gloss I had ever used and I was extremely disappointed. I guess it added alright color to my lips and a lot of shine, but it felt heavy and sticky on my lips. I hated it. It later dried out my lips. I do not recommend this.

I wish this worked for my fine hair
The attachment that I bought this for was the air waver. I had seen a few videos of people using them and the results they get which is BEAUTIFUL waves. Unfortunately, when I tried it on my fine, not-much-hair, layered hair, it looked awful. I looked like my hair was wet and kind of stringy. This looks a lot better on those with lots of hair or thick hair. The other attachments work well for my hair and the dryer itself is over satisfactory. A good product, but if you're just buying it for the air waver and have fine / not much hair, try finding a different one.

Honestly, I hate hairspray. Most all of it makes my hair feel hard and crunchy. This isn't much of an exception. It does make my hair feel kind of hard when I run my hands through it, but not as bad. But, it does hold my hair and I love that it's non-aerosol. I believe I bought it for $4 at Walgreen's. This is a great value and I like that it doesn't weigh down my hair throughout the day.

Soft, healthy hair~
I have used this after normal shampoo and after clarifying shampoo-- both times, I was left with soft, shiny hair that felt healthy. It also has a light, pleasant smell. This product is what, $3? Definitely worth a try and I doubt that you won't be satisfied. This is especially good for damaged hair and after clarifying shampoos. On my fine hair, it did not weigh me down and actually helped hold my style longer. Very good!

Happy with results
As with most-all clarifying and anti-residue shampoos, this will make your hair dry, mostly just if you don't use conditioner afterwards. However, I used this with Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle deep conditioner and my hair is light, fluffy, and clean. For about $6 at Walgreen's, this is a great buy. I used this afterwards with my normal shampoo as suggested and my hair looks wonderful. I definitely recommend this product.
