The Remington ONE Straight & Curl Styler creates a multitude of stunning styles (with digitally controlled heat settings and a luxury storage pouch for travel also topping its lengthy 'reasons to nab' list).

And that's the Dermal Therapy Overnight Lip Repair through and through! On top of the softening effects, a bit of plumping is also on the cards, as well! Is there anything it can't do?! Perfect timing for mistletoe season, too...
