In my last post, I had expressed my disappointment with T3’s hair straightening iron that has completely deteriorated in quality compared to my original T3 from 5 years ago. I am happy to introduce my new Sedu Revolution Nano Tourmaline Ionic Pink hair iron that has the same quality as my old T3 from every aspect that I’ve inspected. I believe the black plates are also a newer generation with better performance. Otherwise, both are about the same size, weight, ease of use, start up time, made in Korea, and North American voltage. I’m really happy that I switched over and didn’t settle with T3, although I do think that esthetically, T3 makes prettier products in general (I love those blingy crystals!!! LOL).
– Heats upto 450F within 25 seconds
– 1 inch floating plates
– 9 inch swivel cord
– 120V ac, 60Hz, 40W
– Made in Korea (but I think the power cord is made in China? cuz it says “Shenzhen” which is the South East part of China…)
– Model SR-500
– 2 year manufacturer’s warranty (no need for product registration online)
– No auto-power off
– No heat resistant cloth
– No world-wide voltage
– DO NOT USE WITH POWER ADAPTER as per instruction manual!!!
Hmmm… maybe in retrospect, that’s how I broke my old T3…?
I got a bunch of samples again with Neiman’s September beauty event. The samples were not the greatest, but that’s okay cuz I usually don’t care much for them. Nonetheless, I made this order now rather than later because I was swayed by this gift with purchase – a Sedu brush worth $30! Apparently it’s anti-bacterial and has ceramic with ionic technology to dry hair faster and shinier! The quality is great, I absolutely love it! However it’s not the only thing that convinced me to make the purchase, Neiman’s also had their Bet2Get event with upto 30% reward back as gift card if your order includes both an apparel and shoes or handbag! I always like to calculate how much I’ve made so if you break it down for a $1000 total purchase, you get $300 back, minus 30$ for the brush, and about $100 worth in samples, that’s really like $570 that you’ve spent – 43% in savings!!! See shopping can be really fun when you time things right, you get really good deals even when you’re not in sale season 😀
