Found 25th Apr 2016
69,99 EUR from Amazon.de. See Post #1 for price in £s.

This Ionic Curl Secret is different to the "Fashion" variety (available in some EU countries) in that it has the anti-frizz ionic function and runs a bit hotter - 210°C, 230°C versus 185°C, 205°C of the "Fashion" Curl Secrets (C901PE Pink, C900E Black, C902PE Blue) babyliss.de/pro…et/

The Ionic models also appear to have a longer cord (2.5m).

69,99 EUR comes to approx GBP 61.98 with delivery. The C1100E and C1101E are both Ionic models with the same specifications - C1101E is simply the Pearl White version.

You need an adapter as this comes with a 2-pin EU plug, only costs £1.45 from the UK from Amazon seller Red Apple Audio, see Post #4. Will work with a 13amp fuse.

I have the C1100E (European version in black) and it works perfectly

How to spot a fake youtube.com/wat…ODo (warning, Aliexpress, DHGate etc have "Babyliss" branded fakes for around £10, be careful buying from third parties, I'd buy from Amazon themselves or a trusted retailer only).

Other ways to spot a fake Curl Secret:
Check out the box - genuine packaging is sturdily built, thick cardboard, precise printing/colours, embossing, no spelling errors.
Genuine Babyliss comes with a Warranty Card or Leaflet (mine, and the instructions were in a clear plastic bag).
Egg crate carton top and bottom, inside the box, as protection with the real thing (though some fakes have this too).
It should come with a curl chamber cleaning tool (two-pronged tool like this):http://babyliss-pro.conairspares4u.co.uk/images/detailed/1/61428.jpg
Fake Babyliss have "Babyliss"-stamped silver metal ring, near the cable - real ones are blank.
Genuine Curl Secrets have good weight, counterfeits are light and build quality/finishing is poor (eg, Babyliss print wears off quickly - typeface looks "off", poor casting, thinner plastic - when you tap it it feels shallow, edges "rough").
Cable is thinner on the fake versus genuine model.
If your hair gets caught with the real one, it automatically stops, preventing any damage - counterfeits apparently don't have the safety cut-off facility.


(About the Miracurl but applies to this model too) geekgirlmanila.com/201…ke/

The authentic one…
… heats up much faster.
… curls better and the heat feels more regulated so I am confident that my hair won’t burn.
… does NOT snag your hair. The authentic one has a safety feature where the curler stops sucking in hair when there’s a snag. The fake one does NOT have that feature. I found my hair being caught in the fake one one too many times.
… does not emit a burning plastick-y smell. The fake one does and this was the ultimate reason why I decided to invest in the authentic one. I am deathly afraid of fire and burning so every time I curled my hair with the fake one, I was so paranoid that it would just burst into flames or explode! I would actually turn off the fake MiraCurl in mid-curling to make it ‘rest’. With the authentic one, I could curl continuously and I was confident that it wouldn’t turn into a fire hazard.


In use, be sure to comb each strand before each curl, makes life a bit easier

Edit: Babyliss Curl Secret is mentioned at 13:00, and 32:00 in the Fake Britain episode. I've left ample warnings and information how to spot fakes - but worthwhile for additional details. Amazon have stellar customer service if you have issues - I merely mentioned all the information about counterfeits because there's so many out there - I'm not implying Amazon themselves sell them.

You're supposed to brush each strand when using these machines - but I have read fakes tangle and jam, as they don't have the safety cut-off.

The counterfeits I can see on Aliexpress, DHGate, etc (some starting at around £10!) all seem to be the Miracurl Black, Blue, Pink versions.That's not to say these EU models aren't faked, I just haven't seen them on my searches.

The UK market doesn't sell the EU Pink, Black and Blue "Fashion Secret" Curl Secrets (Post #2)- but they are genuine Babyliss (the screen grabs were from babyliss.be and babyliss.de - Belgium and Germany).
