(Prepare for the babbling...)
I've owned the C9 Touch for about 6 months now and I'm absolutely in love (sincere apologies to my beloved Babyliss irons). It's innovative, easy to use and really lightweight so I have no problem taking it along when travelling to and from uni. Using it is so simple, there are no extra attachments required and everyone who has seen my straighteners has oo-ed and ahh-ed. The button-less feature is a unique and appealing function; tapping the plates together once gets the heat going instantly and two to three taps adjusts the temperature. The most amazing part is that the after 30 seconds of inactivity, the C9 touch is automatically disabled but will heat up instantly when you start using it again. This makes it so much more safer for first time users, family friendly homes, and  extremely forgetful people like me! 

However, one thing which may bother some people is that the Touch only has 2 heat settings as opposed to their other irons, which is a little disappointing as my previous straighteners had 3. I think this is because Cloud 9 have a 'less heat, more style' philosophy towards their products. I also didn't get a heat mat with the Touch, however I believe that this is now included with all C9 irons. The price tag is quite decent for how unique and innovative the straighteners are; but I do think they could look and feel a bit more luxurious as they look quite plain for such a cool pair of straighteners.



+ Perfect gift for teens, parents of young children, beauty & tech lovers etc.
+ Easy to use, no complicated instructions
+ Instant heat up even after sleep mode
+ Sturdy, durable compact & lightweight


- Not the best looking pair of straighteners available
- Only 2 heat settings


Would you try the C9 Touch?
