Rowenta CF4132 Multistyler Elite 14 In 1 - Review

Hello everybody and welcome to my new blog :)
Today I'm going to review the 14 in 1 Multistyler by Rowenta.
I actually just wanted to buy a curling iron but then I saw this set which was on sale and I thought it would be great to have more than just one curling iron so I bought it.

The set contains:

1) Handle
2) Extra large curling iron
3) Crimper & Straightener 
4) Spiral hair brush & Massage hair brush
5) Bobby pins
6) Hair iron (16mm)

7) Flat curling iron 
8) Hairgrips
9) Storage case

I really like this device since you have multiple irons but you only need one handle and it even comes with a storage case so it's perfect for travelling ! 

The picture above shows the locking- and unlocking- ring which secures the accessory you're using from falling off. You just have to plug the accessory into your handle and lock it and it's ready to be used !

 I find it really disappointing that you can't change the heat settings and that there's no sign that shows you when the device has reached its working temperature. It does say in the instructions that you have to wait 1-3 min. for the iron accessories and 6 min. for the crimping plates to heat up but it doesn't say how hot the device gets and to me that is a big no-no !

( I used the 16mm wand to create these curls)

Now on to the positive sides of this device - the curling irons !

Since there are 3 curling irons that are all working wonderfully you can create different curls which is amazing!
You can also create different curls with only one curling iron - if you want tighter curls you have to wind smaller sections for more than 15 seconds, if you want loose curls wind more hair for 10-15 seconds.

Even though the curling wands are amazing, the brushes aren't !
I will never use them again (especially the massage brush) because they don't really work and my hair got stuck to it !

The Crimper and Straightener in 1, again, is really good for travelling !
Although the straightener doesn't work as good for thick hair it does it's job !
Now, I don't really crimp my hair at all because I'm not a big fan of it but the crimper works really well and maybe it will come in handy one day !

Another plus point are these hairgrips because who doesn't need hairgrips ?
They are very large and they work amazing ! 

All in all I would give this device


because it has its upsides but it also has its downsides !

I hope you enjoyed this post, leave me a comment down below if you want to !

Lots of Love, Jenni xxx
