The absolute BEST curling iron I have ever used. I bought mine off of drugstore.com for $18. I used to own a Hot Tools curling iron...but as soon as I got this one, I chucked the Hot Tools one because this Remington curling iron rocks! The curls stay in all day long...even without hairspray! My hair glides smoothly and effortlessly in between the clamp and the barrel (something that was impossible with my Hot Tools as my hair kept snagging and breaking). My hair actually feels SOFT afterwards as opposed to like straw when I would use other curling irons. I can't say enough about this curling iron...it is the best! And the barrel is PINK :) which makes it so pretty to look at. And the price is pretty awesome too... never again am I paying $60+ for a curling iron!
