Diva Professional Instant Heat Session Tong Review

19th August 2013 in Hair, Uncategorised - 20 Comments - 3 min read >/div>

Hey Beauties!
Since i started doing Hair ive loved finding out new products and new appliances for styling hair, a while ago i was sent the Session Tong to try out and apart from burning myself a few times ive had fun trying it out

The Session Tong heats up to temperatures of 230 degrees which i don’t think you will ever need it that high but its good it goes that high. Its made of Nano-Diamond technology which is super hard and sturdy and the appliance heats up super fast, i think when i use it it takes less than a minute to heat up with is really great.
In the box you get your tong, a heat protective glove that i don’t use it as its a bit small for my hands it also comes with a heat protectant silicone mat to protect against heat damage

I think one really great feature of this tong is it has a display where you can see the set temperature that you can change and also it has the actual temperature so you can see its heating up or cooling down right in front of you. It was has a temperature memory so it remembers the temperature you used the last time it was switched on

I quite like these kinds of tongs because they can create a variety of different looks depending on how you use it, I have to admit i do prefer the one with the clip because i don’t burn myself as much but thats just me im rather clumsy.

I did these looks below to show how versatile the tong is, you can either use it to give the hair beachy waves by twisting the hair as you wrap it around the tong having the tong facing down to create almost spirals or you can use it as you could use a tong curling away from the face wrapping the hair flat across the barrel

For the first look i just randomly curled sections in no real order just to give it a more natural curled feel to it and the second i just took the hair that i had curled and pinned it up in a sort of curly bun

I think this tong is a great idea for those who want fast styling without the trouble of using the clip with your average curling tong because when you’re on set and doing hair you do have to be a little bit speedy.

You can purchase the Diva Professional Instant Heat Session Tong from Divapro.co.uk for £79.99 or you can get the same tong from Salon Services (Sallys) for £49.98 so you are saving £30 which is a pretty big saving

  • When people ask "what do I use for darkness under the eyes" it's can be a complicated issue because it's not always pigmentation.

When dealing with dark circles under the eyes it can be due to the pigmentation in the skin so you will need to look for tyrosinase inhibitors like kojic acid as well as azelaic acid which can brighten an area over time 
Darkness under the eyes can also comes from things like thin skin and lack of fat pads under the eyes, you can essentially see the darkness under the skin through the skin because the orbital area is hollow 
Shadows can be casted by either having too much or not enough fat pad.

This can corrected by using products that thicken the epidermis, glycolic acid is fantastic for this has it thickens the skin over time, there are more permanent fixes as well uses a the use of fillers.

Fillers are injected into the undereye area to simulate the presence of fat pads taking away the darkness. .

  • *GIFTED I love the formula of this sunscreen but I'm not too keen on how it's marketed as if somehow it's better than others because it's "clean". The whole "clean" skincare movement is something I dont agree with because it's not based on anything scientific and if I'm honest i feel like it uses people's fears against them in the sense that people have such an unfounded fear of toxic, dangerous ingredients in skincare.

I just really don't like when brands claim their products are clean as if other products are dirty and dangerous which just isn't the case.

This is an inorganic filter (physical) SPF 30 which uses 22% Zinc Oxide which is broad spectrum it's not more effective or cleaner than organic (chemical) filters.

Besides the way it's marketed I really like the actual product, the stuff inside. It goes on really well and spreads easily despite being silicone free. It also layers well under makeup without changing the colour of your makeup.

I haven't tried on deeper skin tones but I doubt this sunscreen will be suitable because of the high zinc oxide content which tends to look really ashy on deeper skin tones.

I just want to say as a last thing don't be afraid of organic (chemical) sunscreens, they aren't dangerous they aren't bad for you and just because something is inorganic (physical) it doesn't mean it's somehow cleaner. 
Sunscreens are put through an incredible amount of testing to make sure they are safe, effective and fit for purpose. Don't fall for the fearmongering.

  • Theres an idea floating around that the skin needs to breathe but  this is just a myth.

The skin doesn't breathe and you don't need to let it breathe. Your pores have absolutely nothing to do with breathing and covering them won't suffocate your skin.

The idea that ingredients can suffocate the skin is just very old school thing the one most talked about is silicone which contrary to popular belief is actually really good for the skin.

Silicone gives your skin that really nice slip when applying products not to mention it also protects your skin by forming s barrier again the outside world, but thing can still get through as the shape of silicone is like a big hollow circle with branches so it doesn't suffocate your skin.

If you see people saying you need to let your skin breathe you can now tell them the truth!

  • I see this all the time people talking about shrinking their pores by using hot water and closing them with cold water but this simply isn’t possible 
There are no muscles connected to the pore so there is no way for them to open and close. The size of pores is largely down to genetics and there is not much you can do to change that.

He only muscle that can be found is the arrector pili which causes goose bumps by pulling the hairs up on your skin but it doesn’t have anything to do with your pores and tightening them. 
When you see an enlarged pore it doesn’t mean it’s open it most likely means it’s congested with dead skin cells and hardened sebum however you can fix this by using something like salicylic acid which can penetrate the pore lining and flush everything out making the pore appear smaller.

While there are products out there that can blur and temporarily tighten the skin there is nothing permanent out there that can change the size of pores.

  • If you haven't already heard Kylie Jenner is now dipping into skincare as well as makeup.

All I'll say is it's completely different putting a makeup line together as that's rather easy but trying to put together a skincare line that's actually useful and not a bunch of generic rubbish is harder.

Kylie Jenner has effectively repackaged one of the worst face scrubs known to man, St Ives Apricot Scrub! 
This new scrub will contain crushed walnut shells as it's main exfoliant which couldn't be worse for the skin as it has the tendency to cause micro tears in the skin if it's used roughly and can lead to all sorts of problems from letting bacteria into the skin to comprising your hydrolipid barrier.

With all of these new technology in skincare coming from brands like Deciem it feels like this Kylie Jenner product is coming from the late 2000s. To me it just screams lack of thought and can we talk about how generic it is? It's like all she wants to do is  make more money instead of actually formulating something actually useful.

What do you think about this new range? .
