Worth the money, hands down.
This is the best lash curler I have EVER owned. It opens really, really wide so it is easy to get over my lashes. I recently bought a well reviewed name brand competitor’s curler to keep at my girlfriend’s house because it was only $27 and I really regret it—it barely opens and I’ve ripped out my lashes with it several times. I’ve tried other high end competitors’ curlers, too, and this one wins, no contest. If you like a curler that opens up nice and wide, this one is for you. Do yourself a favor and order a set of the replacement pads when you order your curler.
