Hey Curly Girls! (Misikko Product Review and Giveaway) Enter today!

Smooth and silky and beautifully coiffed?  I owe it to Misikko!  You do know about Misikko, right??

As I was saying....smooth and silky.  How often do you hear a true curly girl say those words?  Not very often. 

I have curly hair.  It's thick and coarse and dry.  I need a lot of moisture or I have a big, fuzzy, poufy mess.  Like now.  Ugh.  (As bad as you want to see it, no.  No way am I posting photos of my dried out fuzzy do.)  Chlorine + sun=dry, fuzzy, poufy mess. 

Unless......I straighten it.  I like it straight but it is so.much.work.  One reason is the above mentioned condition of my hair.  However, the main reason is my overwhelming need to be cheap when it comes to hair products and appliances.  I mean, what can I expect from $2.00 shampoo, $3.00 styling products, and a $20.00 flat iron???  

Well, help arrived!  Enter..... Misikko.com.

For the past five years, Misikko has been selling professional styling products via the Web.  If you are looking for professional flat irons, Misikko is the place to shop!  Misikko offers high quality products at great prices.  They carry a wide range of products--just look at the variety of professional hair dryers and hair care products they carry.  Personally, I love the Hana Shine ShieldI like Misikko's prices, too!

When Misikko offered to send me a Corioliss flat iron to review, I was beyond excited.  A professional flat iron?  For me?  Yes, please!

Just a few days later, I was holding a box from Misikko in my hot, little hands.  Inside that box, a Corioliss Classic Pro was waiting just for me.  And when I opened the box.....well......I felt like a princess! 

The sweet scent of roses spilled from the box.  It was beautiful!  I was SO not expecting this!

Many tiny silk roses lined the box, along with a small satin bag filled with beauty product samples.  A stemmed rose, ribbon, and bow graced the Misikko heat proof pad.  Talk about fancy!

  All so pretty! 

I'm tellin' ya.  I sat and admired it for way too long.  I can't remember for certain, but I think the smell of roses was long gone before I was able to move past just opening the box!  (I think I should do a little more for myself to prevent this type of shock.)

So, a few days later, I finally came back to my senses (Ha!) and actually used my new Corioliss Classic PRO flat iron.  heh heh....  Pro.... Yep.. Still in shock.... 


Oh, my!  What a difference a good flat iron makes!  Quick to heat-adjustable heat, too.  No pulling, no snagging, no static fly-aways....  Like I said, what a difference! 

Here, again, I should have taken a couple of photos.  Maybe next time... 

You are more than welcome to ogle the photos of my Corioliss Classic, instead....

Even though I didn't really want to, I let my daughter hold my new flat iron.  (I know what you're thinking!  Wow....stingy!  Sorry.  Can't help it.) 

Since my girl is going to cosmetology school, I thought I'd let a 'future professional' check it out.  She was impressed.  I made sure to show her the Misikko website, too.  And she immediately set her eyes on this Corioliss gift set.  (She always has loved animal prints....)

I am unbelievably proud to own this flat iron.  And I am equally proud to call Misikko a friend of my 'Box of Rocks'.  

So proud and excited, in fact, that I can hardly contain myself over the fact that Misikko is offering another Corioliss Classic to one of my readers! 

 I'm so excited!
