ECRU Travel Hair Dryer | Review

When a company or brand commits to responsible practices, this is the first thing that The Makeup Examiner likes to highlight. ECRU NewYork’s products are eco-friendly, they are not tested on animals and all of its packaging is recyclable. Of course, in this review we’re covering ECRU’s Travel Hair Dryer for which one is unlikely to throw in the recycle bin. That aside, the ECRU Travel Hair Dryer is packaged in recyclable cardboard and includes a bonus of full-sized Silk Nectar Serum that you can toss in the recycling bin after you’ve used every last drop.

So, what sets the ECRU Travel Hair Dryer apart from other travel dryers? Admittedly I’m a reformed over-packer. Yep, I was once known to travel with … uh … a few pieces of luggage, but impromptu business trips or weekend getaways don’t necessarily allow for a lot of time to pack. The ECRU Travel Hair Dryer is a compact, hitting the objective of a packable dryer for travel, yet powerful so that you don’t have to comprise performance. The dryer utilizes patented Japanese Ion Technology for fast, frizz-free drying. And if the Farmer’s Almanac is correct, we’re in for a hair-hating-humid summer.

The ECRU Travel Hair Dryer ($108) is a rather interesting technologically advanced hair dryer that dries hair from the inside out, sealing in moisture for a smooth and shiny style. You’ll probably find that you’ll use the Ecru at home because it’s that good of a dryer. My belief is that there are absolutely items that you can “skimp” on … stylers are not one of them, most especially if you intend to look good while traveling!

ECRU Travel Hair Dryer Specs:

  • Patented Japanese Ion Technology - Dries hair from the inside out to infuse it with moisture, restoring luster and reducing frizz and flyaways
  • Far Infrared Technology - Dries hair faster
  • Special Ion Infused Nozzle - Releases heat vacuum to prevent damage to hair
  • Dual Voltage - Adjust drying power to meet European and American requirements
  • Free full-size Silk Nectar Serum ($32.50) - For weightless silky, smooth style

TME found the ECRU Travel Hair Dryer to offer everything that one needs in a travel styler and the high quality places this item on The Makeup Examiner’s Seasonal Beauty Must-Haves list. The ECRU Travel Hair Dryer and ECRU New York products can be purchased online at ECRU and select retail locations globally!

ghd Gloss Collection Limited Edition Styler

The Makeup Examiner just caught a little insider info about one of the ghd stylers. Readers, you might remember that I mentioned ghd stylers in last week’s Manic Makeup Monday article. ghd announced the introduction of their new limited edition styler on Oct. 29!

Not only did I get the early announcement, I was also able to acquire the Red Gloss Collection Limited Edition Styler. As I’ve previously written, ghd is hands-down the very best flat iron that I’ve ever used and I recommend no other. I have used the ghd Gold Classic Styler for the past six years, but the new Red Gloss Collection Limited Edition has some amazing new features such as auto sleep mode, universal voltage and a signature rounded barrel.

With the Red Gloss Collection Limited Edition Styler, The Makeup Examiner was able to quickly achieve both frizz-free curls and sleek frizz-free straight hair styles. Gloss features ghd’s bestselling Classic Series Professional 1” Styler and the styling plates are contoured with a high-gloss finish to glide through hair effortlessly and smooth while providing extra shine. So what is the insider info? The Red Gloss Collection Limited Edition styler ($185 USD) will be available exclusively at Ulta beginning Nov. 1!
