Wen Cleansing Conditioners with Gift Boxes Review

I’d feel terribly weird if I gifted a friend with haircare for the Holidays. 1. My friends wouldn’t appreciate it as not alot of them are heavily into beauty plus many of them are geeky guys and 2. It makes feel like I’m gifting deodorant or something. “Oh hai here is a gift of shampoo for the holidays, you haz bad hair day!” Know what I mean?

So I decided to gift MYSELF with the Wen Cleansing Conditioners with Gift Boxes from QVC. All the reasons I listed above for not gifting to friends, well, that’s probably a cop out because I’m selfish and wanted this set all for myself.



I’m kinda sorta obsessed with Wen again. I tried it a few years ago, liked it, and didn’t do a repurchase in a bit since I reverted back to my beloved Lush Haircare but lately I find Wen is just so simple to use and it makes my hair super soft so yay for simplicity in haircare.

This set comes with five 16 oz bottles of Wen Cleansing Conditioners in beautiful gift boxes as well a five piece DVD set to gift with each conditioner to introduce friends to the joy of Wen. In my case, I really have no use for the DVD set because I purchased on my own but I think it really is a rather fun when to introduce your besties to a new hair care product.

Wen Cleansing conditioning is a rich and moisturizing cleansing shampoo slash conditioner made from a blend of herbs & natural ingredients. It’s formulated to not strip your hair and cleanses hair without detergents. You simply wet your hair, apply a few pumps, let it sit for a minute or two and rinse as you normally would in the shower.

One thing you do have to be careful with is the fact this does cause a bit of build up with continued use. My first try I didn’t notice any issues with build up however after a month or more of use I definitely noticed my hair was a bit weighted down. So you do want to rely on a clarifying shampoo once every two weeks or even weekly to correct the issue should it arise.

This set the following scents:

  • Sweet Almond Mint
  • Fig
  • Pomegranate
  • Lavender
  • Winter Vanilla Mint

The set is $80 plus $9 shipping which works out to around $18 or so dollars per bottle. It’s a deal in my opinion.

You can get it at QVC.com

    I’ve been contemplating trying WEN….because frankly my hair and scalp hate me and I have tried EVERYTHING. Do you like it Muse?

      lol jenn I prob wouldn’t have purchased a set of five if I didn’t like them :) hehe. did you read my post hun?


      • 11/4/11 20:18 Jenn:

        HAHA Good point!! I guess I am wondering what difference you saw? Would it work for fine/thin hair?

    I think it’s a good deal but loving WEN heavily depends on choosing the correct formula. One could love lavender and totally hate fig. Having passed on fig to a friend she loved it but made my hair and scalp feel gross. Wouldn’t gift this unless I was really sure of my friends’ type of hair and scalp and that really doesn’t come up in conversation much.

    I have the smaller bottles that were part of the QVC New Beauty Test Tubes and I just loooove how the Winter Vanilla Mint smells. I have longer hair and feel like I need to much product to get good results so instead I have been using about 1 pump as a leave in conditioner and it makes my hear pretty awesome. :)


    • 11/4/11 11:08 the Muse:

      same here becky! ;-D I use about two pumps but it’s so thick you don’t have to use a ton of it!


    • 11/9/11 16:11 Nadia:

      Oooohhh, Winter Vanilla Mint, that sounds awesome. I’m going to see if I can order that one. Still pretty hooked on the Sweet Almond but that might be about to change 😉


  • 11/4/11 13:59 Libby:

    I bought a 6oz size of the Pomegranate, used it as directed and ended up with soft but flat hair ! I will use much less next time, Has anyone tried the Volumizing Shampoo and treatment sets by Wen?


    • 11/8/11 12:51 LaurieS:

      I have long but fine hair and find that if I use only Wen it gets very limp and greasy at the roots. I use a regular colorsafe, sulfate free shampoo on my bangs and then follow up with Wen on the rest. I also use the lavender volumizing spray on the roots when drying and it works great!


  • 11/5/11 14:34 LollySue:

    I had been wanting to try the WEN products, as I had seen them on QVC and infomercials several times, but was worried about buildup and flat hair, as my hair is very fine. Unfortunately, almost all of the varieties contain aloe as an ingredient and I am severely allergic. Also, most good reviews have hyped the softness factor, and my fine hair is naturally soft already, so I think that I wouldn’t really benefit from it anyway.
