Lionesse Beauty Bar + Giveaway

When it comes to my everyday beauty routine, my time and focus is usually spent more on my hair than on what goes on my face. I thank the good Lord above for blessing me with the thickest, longest and most versatile hair possible. While it may look great most of the time, it doesn't come without a lot of upkeep and management. I mean my hair is literally as thick as a horse's mane... don't believe me, ask both of my hair stylists who get an arm workout every appointment. 

So when it comes to the types of tools and products I use, I always look for items that can tackle the thickness and length. I rarely straighten my hair, but when I do I look for a straightener that can get extremely hot and one that doesn't require my arm to fall off from having to go over the same strand of hair ten times. That is when I ditched the cheap straightener for a professional approved flat iron. 

Lionesse Beauty Bar has several ceramic irons to choose from, in a variety of colors. I received my new tool a few weeks ago and have been itching to try it out. Its been so long since I wore my hair straight, so I was even more eager to see how long my hair had gotten. I've used those cheap irons in the past, that leave plenty of creases and wrinkles in my hair. I hate having to go over a strand multiple times, as that weakens and drys out my hair. With my Lionesse iron, I cut the amount of time it took to straighten my entire head of hair... in half!



The inner LEO in me was ecstatic that the Lionesse iron saved me so much time. I even got a few extra minutes of Today Show watching in before work. The feel and look of my hair was even better... I literally couldn't stop running my hands through my hair. Probs not the best thing to do, but it was so smooth!


The Lionesse hair iron made such a wonderful impression on me, that I'm giving away ONE CERAMIC IRON (as pictured) to a lucky First Impressions reader!!

“That is when I ditched the cheap straightener for a professional approved flat iron.” – Way to go! We should really invest on the things that we use on our hair and our body in general. You do not need to be a flat iron expert to know that what you have isn’t a good one, right? ;)

I love the idea of this saving me time. I really need a unit that will not fry my hair, I cut off my hair and have to cut it one more time, to get off all of the damage my old iron did. I really need a professional iron. Thanks for the review.
