Spotlight & Giveaway - Jose Eber

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post, my first ever, and I hope I do it justice. Although sponsored, these are my own honest opinions. I am not paid to say anything I don't want to. Also, please be aware that this is going to be a long and thorough review as I want to do these products the justice it deserves! Also, I really hate taking pictures but I just had to because I love these products so much! Pardon my lack of smiling! I hardly smile in pictures!

Hello again!

About a month ago, I entered a giveaway for a curling wand on a blog written by my new friend Sandy, of Sandy Ala Mode and luckily, I won! But it gets better! I won't just be reviewing the 1 Jose Eber product that I won, I'll be reviewing 3 different products made by this awesome company! Yes, three! Why? Because I really feel like these wonderful products need to be shared with the world! 

About my hair: I have severely disobedient hair. It's quite unfortunate. When I style my hair, my hair basically says, "Screw you." and drops any style almost instantly. Products don't make a difference, I've been through TONS of them. In fact, my hair doesn't even hold a permanent color! It's truly terrible.

...Then José Eber came into my life!

José Eber isn't just a hairstylist, he's an architect of hairstyles. Thousands of women across the world have been transformed by his artistic touch and inspired vision. He's a master craftsman of flair, style and class. And now, he is presenting the world with his life-changing products! 

First off, I'd like to introduce the Trio Clipless Curling Iron!

This curling iron features 3 interchangeable barrels (19mm - about 0.75", 25mm - about 1" and a tapered barrel). its extremely easy to switch out too! On the back side of the device, there's a button to press and the barrel releases instantly! The digital display in the front of the device shows precise temperature and is easily adjustable with the buttons just below it. The grip (handle) is not only comfortable, it's also slightly weighted so it can rest safely on any counter safely! Each attachment is a tourmaline ceramic barrel (of different sizes for different curl sizes and styles) and uses negative ion technology to distribute heat evenly and softly to prevent burning and damaging and give you shinier, longer lasting curls. 

So remember how I told you about my (crappy) hair? Well, guess what? My hair doesn't hold a curl. (Annoying!) At my salon, even the stylists there were stumped. I once had 3 girls working on curling my hair at once -- 1 curling, 1 pinning and the 3rd spraying my hair with hairspray. Guess what happened when they took out the pins! Yep, the curls dropped. Knowing this, I was extremely skeptical but I gave it a fair shot anyways. When my curling iron arrived, I quickly opened it and tried it out. 

As you can see for yourself, this product is just great! I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who has issues like mine or for anyone thinking about upgrading to a new curling device. I've literally tried them all. The most recent was the Hot Tools brand which has 5 star ratings on numerous websites and wonderful reviews but it just didn't do the trick for my hair. I am truly thankful to have found Jose Eber, and I really hope you all decide to pick one up!

The next item I'd like to talk about is the Infared Blow Dryer!

This blow dryer is nothing short of amazing! Why? It uses Infared light to dry your hair from the inside out! Because of this amazing Infared technology, it cuts drying time in half (mine was cut to mere minutes!), it avoids burning and hot spots because you're not applying heat directly onto the hair shaft and because it uses antimicrobial properties via the Ultra Violet technology, it also cleanses the hair, removing bacteria and buildup, leaving you with shinier, smoother and much more manageable hair! If that's not enough, it also features 4 variable heat and speed settings to match any hair type!

Now, I'll be honest. I never thought purchasing a blow dryer would be too much of a chore. And until I came across this one, I've only used cheap, drug store bought hair dryers not realizing how important of a device this actually was. So when I started using this device, I was astonished! Drying my hair usually took about 10-15 minutes (if I did everything properly). With this device, I was done in about 5 minutes. 5 MINUTES! An extra 10 minutes?! Who has that?! Not only that, I also notice that my (crappy) hair is MUCH more manageable and that's something I often complain about! Seriously, who would have thought that a blow dryer was that important?! Apparently not me. 

For those of us who just want to snooze their alarm for just 5 more minutes of sleep, we can afford to do so with this magnificent device, AND we can still go out with perfectly styled hair! As you can see, blow drying makes a HUGE difference. And if you're in the market for a new device, or simply just reading reviews because you are ready to purchase a good quality hair dryer, please put this device at the top of your list! You won't be disappointed! 

And last, but definitely not least, the Pink 1.25" 100% Ceramic Flat Iron!

The 100% Pure Ceramic Flat Iron is nothing short of amazing! Did you know that most flat irons claim to have ceramic plates but usually are just ceramic coated plates? This means that over time, the ceramic coating will disappear, leaving your hair exposed to harsh heated metal! How annoying! This flat iron is different though, it features 100% ceramic plates for even heat distribution which protects against burning, hot spots and color fading. The plates are floating to prevent pulling also! (Although the particular one I'm reviewing is 1.25"), this flat iron comes in a range of sizes to best suit your particular hair type. If that's not enough, this flat iron's heat is customizable and comes in black, black & white zebra, pink & black zebra, pink and pink & black hearts to best suit your own personal taste!

Since I've received my flat iron, I haven't gone a single day without using it! It's perfect for my hair since I have naturally wavy hair and most days, I just want it completely tamed! Every single time I use it, I am amazed at the results. My hair is shiny, soft and doesn't drop it's style like it would usually when I used my previous devices! I definitely notice a difference in the shine mostly when using this flat iron. My old flat iron said it was ceramic, but over time, the ceramic coating wore out and my flat iron would obviously dry out and damage my hair. With this new device, my hair is left shinier than ever! I'll never go back to conventional straighteners! 

Just look at the difference for yourself! Isn't it just amazing?! I don't think there are words that can do this flat iron justice. Just look at the pictures for yourself and you'll be a believer!
