I currently have a cheaper “straightening” blow dryer, and it works pretty well, but really wanted to try out this Instyler BLU Turbo Ionic Dryer based on the benefits listed. I can say that I like the looks of this dryer a lot more, it is more up-to-date (modern), and does not look like your standard dryer.
When it comes to being lightweight, I personally did not think it was heavy, but not much lighter than my current dryer, so this was not a huge advantage for me.
The settings on this BLU Turbo Ionic Dryer were pretty nice, and defintely a nice upgrade from my current dryer. There are only 2 settings for high and low (like normal), but you can adjust the dial for the speed with a few settings to choose from, which is what I liked the most.
Also, there is a “Cool Shot” button which you do have to hold in, which can be a pain, but it releases cold air, the longer you hold it, the colder it seems to get. I thought this was useful for when I get too hot from the heat, or of course when you are trying to “freeze” your style in place.
This does have an 8 foot power cord, for me this was kind of annoying, since I only have a need for about 3 feet of cord. However, this is good for people trying to share bathrooms, or have few plugs.
One more annoyance of mine, which is kind of with all hair dryers…it is loud…louder than my current dryer, which can be annoying when living in an apartment.
Overall, in comparison to my current hair dryer, this is nothing outstanding, however I am still a fan of it based on the few options mine does not have, or ones that are more powerful. I will continue using this product!! I received this product for free in exchange for my honest opinion
