Conair You Reel 2-in-1 Styler and Impressions Cushion Brush Review

I’ve been in the market for a new hair dryer. My current one is old. I mean, seriously old. I think I was using it back in high school, and that was over a decade ago.

Recently I got to try a new hair dryer from Conair, plus a super adorable Conair hair brush.

Enter the Conair You Reel 1875 Watt Tourmaline Ceramic 2-in-1 Styler and the Conair Impressions Cushion Brush, stage left.

conair03Here’s what comes with this hair dryer:

  • The hair dryer (of course)
  • Diffuser attachment (for anti-frizz)
  • Concentrator attachment (for a more concentrated flow of air)

I like the idea of this coming with attachments. While the attachments felt a little light and plastic-y, they snapped onto the dryer easily and worked as expected.

As far as hair drying goes, I like this one. It worked better than my ancient hair dryer anyway! The You Reel comes with three heat settings and two speeds, giving you lots of control.

But my favorite thing about this is the cord. With other hair appliances, the cord is annoying and becomes a tangled, knotted mess after a while. Not this one! To release the cord, you just pull it from the handle. Then, when you want it to retract, you just push the black button on the side of the dryer.

Zip! It goes back into the dryer. If you ever played with a retractable tape measure, then you know how much fun that can be.

Add in the fact that the handle also folds up, this hair dryer is a space-saving beast. I give it a…


You can pick this up in mass-market retailers and drug stores, as well as the Conair website and Amazon for $34.99 suggested retail price.

Conair Impressions Cushion Brush

conair04Holy adorable hair brush, Batman!

The big selling point for the Impressions Cushion Brush is the design. How adorable can you get? It has a flowered design over the handle and head and comes in two designs.

As for brushing, this isn’t the best hair brush I’ve used, but it’s not terrible either. The bristles pull at tangles in a slightly painful way, but it still gets the job done. And can you really hate something that’s so cute? I can’t. That’s why I give it a…

  1. That hair brush is so cute! Shame it doesn’t work too well though.

  2. Conair makes some really incredible hair dryers that transform your hair into the next level. The brushes, like you said, are not all that. I have been gifted some and I truly hated them. If you want a good brush, just go to Sally’s and talk to the salespeople there. You’ll find the best one for your type of hair and they are always cheap.

  3. hahahah I have that hair dryer too! I can play with the cord all day long, so easily amused. That hair brush is cute indeed, too bad it’s not the best one out there.
