Advantages: Works well, price
**What is it?**
The Babyliss 2585U Cordless Gas Styler is a tong and hot brush you can use on the go - it doesn't need any battery or electrical supply at all, doesn't need recharging - it heats up in 10 seconds from it's replaceable gas cartridges, meaning wherever you are, you can style your hair!
It's obviously aimed for and marketed at people who travel - be it for leisure or work, who can't always access a power socket. It's handy for when you actually *are* travelling - I've used mine in the car when I've been late (not when I've been driving it at the time, obviously!) and I've seen people use them on the train. I wouldn't recommend taking it in your hand luggage on a plane, however.
**Price and Availability**
The Babyliss 2585U Cordless Gas Styler is available for £19.99 in good electrical beauty retailers such as Boots, Superdrug, Argos, and online at places like Amazon, though a P&P charge will usually apply. It comes with one gas canister and I buy replacements from a store called Bodycare which is a national chain, for £3.99 for two, which I think is a reasonable price as I've seen them as much as £5.99 in independent stores.
The Babyliss 2585U Cordless Gas Styler is styled in black plastic and chrome, with a black hot brush attachment. It has the Babyliss logo in white to the side. There is a gas switch, ignitor switch and a small black hinge for the tong arm. It looks pretty professional.
Use of the Babyliss 2585U Cordless Gas Styler is easy, you simply add or remove the hot brush attachment (it's not advisable to add it after it's hot, as you may burn yourself, but you can if you are careful!)
You simply then switch on the gas and flick the ignitor and whoosh! Ten seconds later you have a hot, ready tp use tong. The barrel is 28mm, which is a slightly bigger than average barrel, and means you can work on flicks, curls, fringes, straightening, volume and so much more. It's just as good as an electrically heated tong, in fact, better in some ways and not just it's portability - it's easy to use it with the freedom of movement you have as it allows you to move about your head and not get tangled up in any flex.
I really do like my Babyliss gas styler, I don't acutally bother with my electric tong any more though I do have an electric straightener. It's great for travel, I use it when I'm running late for work, I use it to go abroad, visit family and so on - it's very versatile and I use it a lot. It would actually make a great gift, and I recommend it for anyone looking for a gift which is both 'pampering' and useful.
I'm going to give this 5 stars out of 5 - it's a great little styler, it's cheap to run and it's so handy. The Babyliss 2585U Cordless Gas Styler is a great product and it works really well.
Summary: A great buy!
