After my GHD IV styler decided to pack in after a trusty 6 years I decided to stick with what I know and go GHD once more. I can’t lie, I did barely any research around the different models, I went onto feelunique.com and saw there in all their glory on the homepage the GHD Rose Golds on sale. Now you’re probably thinking it was the sale part that got me… think again. If you do not already know by now, I LOVE anything and everything rose gold. So without a second thought I ordered them there and then.
GHD did not skimp on the packaging of these and carry the rose gold theme though, from the box they come in, to the detailing on the heat resistant roll bag. The straighteners themselves are all lovely and rose gold with the exception of the plates which I was so excited to see little sprinkles of rose gold in them (it’s the little things in life right?).
The product comes with a few little extra bits and bobs I was very happy to find in my box. And the straighteners also have a few little bonus features:
☆ Heat resistant rose gold roll bag
☆ Protective plate guard
☆ 2 x sectioning clips
☆ Smoother plates than previous GHD models
☆ Lighter body
☆ Automatic sleep mode
Now, to the important bit. Yes they are beautiful, yes the packaging is to die for but are they worth £130?!
In my opinion and as long as they are as long lasting as my last pair of GHDs YES! I use these for both curling and straightening and I have yet to find a style I can not create with these. The automatic sleep mode which kicks in after 30 mins has saved our house on more than one occasion and the lightness is perfect for me as I do a lot of travelling. Whether it is because my IV stylers were old I am not sure but unlike them, these plates just glide over my hair without that horrible pull of hair when you reach the end. The only qualm I have is that I have burnt myself on a few occasions, I have yet to work out if this is a design fault or me just getting used to the shape of my new straighteners. I am more inclined to go with the latter as I am a very accident prone person!
I bought mine from feelunique and I have just seen they are still in the sale, as these are limited edition and if this review has helped you decide on what to do -http://www.feelunique.com/p/ghd-limited-edition-rose-gold-styler-set DO IT! (not that I’m a bad influence or anything)
