Review Babyliss Pro Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron (1-1/2") recently gave me the opportunity to review one of their fabulous curling irons. My hair is incredibly thick and textured and given my Asian roots, it is notoriously hard to curl. It generally takes a fairly high-quality hot tool to do much with it and I'm happy to say that I had amazing luck with the Babyliss Pro Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron with 1.5" barrel.
If you're not familiar with 1.5" barrels they are quit large! The tip is actually rubbery and stays cool to the touch, making it easier to work with. This is not a curling wand--it does have a clip. It's easy to work with and avoid strange kinks if you know how to work a traditional curling iron.
I believe this picture is of the slightly smaller 1" barrel, but mine was identical aside from the  size of the barrel. The cord actually swivels as you work so you won't get tangled up like you would with older models.

This is one of my favorite features (aside from its awesome performance). It has a heat gauge that you pop out to adjust and then push back in after. Super handy and you don't accidentally hit it and adjust the heat while you work.

Before: This is actually my hair a day after straightening it. My hair is fairly crazy if I do nothing to it, so if I'm wearing it down and straight I have to straighten it to avoid looking like a maniac.
Curls! Before showing you the "after" I wanted to show you a close-up of the banana curls I was able to achieve with the Babyliss Pro Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron. These are impressive for my hair and they were nice and large--perfect for my hair!
After: After finishing all of my curls and shaking them out and loosening them a bit (I wasn't going for a straight banana curl look that day haha) this is what they turned into. I love it! Excuse the weird head pose, it's hard to take a pic of your own head lol.
This is priced at $119.99 on, but it is currently listed with a sale price as of the day this review was published of $84.99!

Final Thoughts
If you're like me and you need a bigger barreled curling iron this is absolutely one I would recommend. I've used it a few times since my first attempt and really like it. It heats up quickly and curls my hard-to-curl hair well. I actually recently used it for another look and after 3 hours of extreme heat and humidity my curls were still in place. All in all I would definitely recommend this curling iron for anything looking for a large barreled curling iron that gets the job done.

What do you think? Will you be giving it a try?
