Wen Summer Coconut Lime Verbena Cleansing Conditioner is the newest Wen Summer 2015 Cleansing Conditioner that recently launched on QVC. I think I may be a little burned out on Wen Cleansing Conditioner fragrances lately because many of the formulas are very, very thick compared to the original formulations and my hair doesn’t quite love the texture!
But Coconut Lime Verbena?
How could I resist?!
GREAT NEWS! I love this formula! Phew! If you’ve experienced issues with some of the seasonal fragrances being a little too thick and creamy you’ll be happy with Coconut Lime Verbena. Granted, it’s thick, it’s creamy, but the formula is more like the original Almond Mint formulation. I believe someone told me the seasonal collection was created with the Wen Six Thirteen formula which gives it a much thicker consistency than I like. I just find it difficult to wash out and it leaves all kinds of buildup behind.
But as I said this formula is more like the Almond Mint formula so I’m a happy girl!
Now the fragrance is lovely but not what I expected. I expected something more original from Wen in all honesty but it’s just a rerun of Bath & Body Works Coconut Lime. I’d say it was a spot on dupe. The coconut is very subtle and the mix of tart lime gives the fragrance a little kick! I thought the linger in my hair a little weaker compared to past seasonals but it still left my hair smelling quite lovely!
If you’ve never used Wen Cleansing Conditioners before you should read my article about “What Co-washing is?” to brush up on why cleansing conditioners may or may not be good for your hair type. This is a thick conditioner that replaces shampoo and conditioner so you’ll be using it to not only to condition your hair but also to cleanse it. Simply wet your hair, work the cleansing conditioner through, and rinse! It leaves my drier, wavy hair soft, smooth, and tangle free. My hair is very long and very wavy and this is a treat for it!
Not sure I’m incredibly impressed with the fragrance of Went Coconut Lime Verbena Cleansing Conditioner but I am happy with the formula! I don’t think it needs to be added to your must buy list but if you’re running low on your current Wen it’ll make a nice Summer replacement.
