GHD Limited Edition Purple Peacock Review

Its no secret, ghd's have been my best friend for the past 7 years. I remember receiving my first pair for my 18th birthday, I was excited to see whether the hype was accurate. It was indeed. It gave me super sleek poker straight hair, perfect curls and voluminous waves and the best part? they stay in. Ever since then I have not been anywhere without my ghd's. I take them on holidays, to the gym, sleepovers and when my friends say 'don't bring your straighteners, I have mine' the first questions I ask is 'are they ghd's'? Sorry but yes, I am a straightener snob, it started when I turned 18.

So can you imagine my excitement when I was offered to be sent a pair? probably not. My old pair (2nd pair) are 5 years old and although they work perfectly fine, they were starting to look a little old. When they arrived, my jaw dropped. How beautiful are they? The deep amethyst purple plates look sleek and the matte black body is just pure sexy.

So, whats different apart from the design? Well, the new straightener comes in a satin roll, perfect for travelling. Once opened, the satin roll then becomes a heat mat, no more burnt carpets and vanity tables. The straightener itself has a new protective plate guard that fits on to the top, it keeps them closed and protects the plates. These also heat up really fast, REALLY fast meaning you save time. Forget to switch them off? haven't we all, but don't worry, it now comes with an automatic switch off when not in use for a certain amount of time. 

The straighteners retail at rrp £119, a bit steep I know but I promise you, they are worth every single penny. The creme dela creme of straighteners. It will save you time, give you fab hair and last for years to come. You can buy them at Regis.

(Disclaimer: The product was sent to me free for review purposes, I am not being paid for this post)
