I was sent this a few weeks ago from the company and so far I am loving it! It is one of the best hair straighteners I have tried! There is no doubt that this flat iron is worth the $49.99! It leaves your hair silky, shiny, and smooth! I will be putting a full in depth video review on my YouTube channel in January. That seem a long time away much I want to make sure it keeps impressing me so I don't send people to buy it if its really not worth it.
