I got mine for about £110 so heat from me! I still couldn't use them lol technically challenged!

Got these for the my partner for Christmas, safe to say, biggest regret ever.

The product itself is smashing, has 3 simple settings which give different results, it takes about 5 mins from start to finish to use the product, curls last a long time, perfect product.

The negative part, well, ever since we got this bloody thing, she has roped me into straightening and curling her hair because i offered to help her with the back ONCE!

If you are considering these, don't be a gentleman about it, tell them to do the bloody job themselves.

I've tried getting OH to straighten the back of my hair in the past and I'm sure he does it rubbish on purpose so I won't ask him,I mean,it's not difficult to use GHD's is it,but it's not very straight when he does it so I don't bother,mission accomplished to him no doubt!

I ought to do the same when using the hair clippers on him,say I can't do it !

are these genuine? I heard a lot of fakes on amazon plus never seen them in this colour

I'd be interested to know if these are genuine! Great price if they are!

Don't they only come in purple or black. My sister has the pro ones that are black. I got the purple ones for free

says ships from and sold by Amazon, I'm guessing it would be genuine. I hope so anyway as I've just ordered one!

Original Poster

For those doubting if this product is genuine i) as the product is sold by Amazon (rather than a 3rd party seller) I'd guess they were genuine, I don't see Amazon knowingly selling fakes themselves ii) I've never had any problems with refunds/returns with Amazon even buying internationaly and iii) I reckon these may be an international ( not just UK market) or old product, the Babyliss.FR website lists white as well as black, but not purple and other French reputable retailers list the Curl Secret in pink and blue. darty.com/nav…tmlboulanger.com/ref…337

Babyliss Belgium official site babyliss.be/fr/…pe/ They DO come in pink

Ordered a pair! Great price!

I look forward to using these on my shoulders. Wife can wait...

Does this come with a French plug ? Would i need to buy a special adapter to use in UK?

I ordered from them the last time they were on offer. The light came on … I ordered from them the last time they were on offer. The light came on briefly and then they died. Have returned them to Amazon, you pay for the return and it's refunded on receipt (£13), a lot of expense and a lot of waiting for nothing. I'm waiting to see who else has them on offer in the UK.


Cheaper EU to UK plug adapter (you still need a 13amp fuse, comes with a 5amp fuse apparently) £1.70 from the UK (seller Executivez) http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B000NJ30QO/ref=dp_olp_new_mbc?ie=UTF8&condition=new

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) http://geekgirlmanila.com/2014/05/01/babyliss-miracurl-review-demo-and-authentic-vs-fake/

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

I would post links to a few example counterfeit Curl Secrets but I don't know if it would put my post into moderation queue limbo

Heat added am tempted to buy

I use these to straighten my short and curlies oO

Interestingly Amazon even in the uk is not an approved retailer
http://www.babyliss.co.uk/fakes-and-counterfeit-goods.html
I've heard a few dodgy stories about cheap perfumes sold and dispatched by Amazon themselves, and I bought a ysl product from Amazon directly which really didn't seem like the real deal!

These are FAKE babyliss main website said they aren't made in this colour! Beware

Just a FYI, this C901PE is a more "basic" Curl Secret model and operates at a lower temperature compared to some (I have an "Ionic" model, EU C1100E).

Babyliss main website say they don't make them in this colour

Ah, but is that on the Babyliss UK website or European? Certain models are only distributed in certain countries.

The Babyliss Belgium website implies this "Fashion Curl Secret C901PE" is real - a "Limited Edition" Fashion variety in Pink or Blue http://babyliss.be/fr/produits/coiffure/boucleurs/

Amazon.de also sell them, and they're on Babyliss' German site babyliss.de/pro…pe/ Germany even has them in "Ionic" White (C1101E) and "Fashion" Black (C900E)! https://www.babyliss.de/produkte/haarpflege/curl-secret/

C901PE box: https://i.cdn.nrholding.net/25012686/800/800/

I suppose an email to Babyliss wouldn't hurt if you're unsure. http://babyliss.be/fr/contact/

The Ionic Pearl White is 79EUR at the moment on Amazon.de, I'd rather go for the more advanced model (plus my hair resists curls so I would need the higher temperature settings the Ionic models offer) amazon.de/BaB…VK8 (comes to approx GBP 65.48 with delivery).

Also, if you're really really bad with hair (like me) this might be worth a try facebook.com/buz…04/ it looks pretty much idiot-proof!

As this is sold by Amazon I'm not too worried, and yes they do a pink model in Europe

oh no I didnt know it was just a basic one, tried to cancel it but too late, plus not sure of the return policy

Purchased these from Amazon FR. Extremely quick delivery & great item for daughter in pink - the price brilliant. Also purchased a plug on uk Amazon to transform to uk 3 pin plug (£2.50) & added 13amp fuse, plug took a week to arrive!. Genuine item! Two happy ladies!

unfortunately my "fake" had all the genuine features, egg box, very sturdy casing, great clear print and the accessories. The ring was even embossed and the numbers perfectly in line with the switches. also heated quickly and wasn't noisy like some fakes. Think the warranty was missing but id already been on to babyliss before it even case as social discount network ignored my request for their suppliers name.

Depending on the model, a real Babyliss Curl Secret doesn't have anything embossed on the silver ring, think you misunderstood.

Not sure why you're resurrecting an old thread, this is from Amazon.fr
