BaByliss C1101E Pearl White Curl Secret Ionic (Runs Hotter Than The Fashion Edition) Approx £65.89 @ Amazon.de Germany

Found 7th Jan 2016
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).

79 EUR comes to approx GBP 65.89 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 £1.69 from the UK from Amazon seller Red Apple Audio, see Post #2. Will work with a 13amp fuse.

I have the C1100E Ionic (in grey) and it's a great device

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

Another EU model, the C1000E amazon.de/BaB…M4/ is the same Purple colour as the UK version also 210-230°C, but isn't an Ionic model.
The European C1050E is the same colour and operates at the same temperature as the C1000E but Ionic amazon.de/BaB…VLA - I'm guessing Ionic C1050E is an older one as the Ionic C1100E and C1101E Pearl White are the newest versions.

I am absolutely hopeless with hair, about all I can do is tie my hair back! But even I can use it! One thing I will say is that the Curl Secret is a bit heavy, but that won't bother most people.

Price has gone up now to 96,09 EUR

68,15 EUR from Amazon.de Warehouse (would bring the total to approx GBP 58.39 delivered) amazon.de/gp/…sed (From Google Translate - "Packaging may be damaged. Minor cosmetic defects of the article. Amazon customer service and return policy (up to 30 days) with any purchase.")

I've had some great purchases from Amazon Warehouse UK so I would buy with confidence - and most "minor defects"-listed items have looked new to me, simply open box!

Do we need to pay custom duty?

No, it's within the EU as it comes from Germany - and the price I quoted originally is the price you would pay, price has gone up now though!
Thanks, bought one arriving Friday x
