Here are the products I received. I already reviewed WEN Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner (top left). For this post, I will review the styling cream on the top right.

Description on the back: WEN Stying Creme adds the perfect balance of moisture, shine and body to the hair. It acts as a leave in conditioner, polishing gloss and light gel, all in one.

My thoughts: I was excited to try this product since I have never used a styling creme before. I know as a beauty blogger, I'm not the most experienced when it comes to my hair. :P I like simplicity when it comes to hair since I have naturally, straight hair. I don't have to do much. I'm very blessed in that way.
I noticed just like the Cleansing Conditioner, the Stying Creme is creamy in texture. The only difference in my opinion is that the Styling Creme is more clearer than the Cleansing Conditioner.
Here's a picture of the Styling Creme on a cotton pad. Thanks to a blogger buddy I know how to take pictures of products and make it look clear. Thank you! :)
The direction on the back says after cleansing with WEN Cleansing Conditioner, apply 1-2 pumps of WEN Styling Creme to the mid-shaft and ends of wet hair. Style as desired.
Thank goodness you don't need to use that much pumps! I cannot imagined using so many pumps for the Styling Creme like the Cleansing Conditioner. Even with my long hair, 2 pumps is good enough. My hair goes down to my waist. It won't be that long as soon as I get a hair cut. I'm just too lazy. :X Since you only need to use a little amount, this product will last a long time.
When you apply this on your hair, it has a very strong minty smell. It's much stronger than the Cleansing Conditioner. Even if you don't like the smell, it doesn't last that long about a few minutes. They also come in other flavors like Fig, Cucumber Aloe, and Lavender (I received this one from the event).
I hate to admit this, but I have an OCD when it comes to my hair. Whenever I am stressed or alone, I tend to pull my hair. I know it's a bad habit, but I can't seem to stop *sigh*. Since I pull my hair, I have a lot of baby hairs. It's very noticeable especially on the top of my head. When I was using the Styling Creme, it flatten my baby hairs and mixed it in with my normal, straight hair. It looked really good! :) I also noticed after you use the Styling Creme, your hair is softer and shiner than usual. The best combination is to use it with the Cleansing Conditioner. Your hair feels great afterwards. It also says on the back it's a great heat-protected product. You can use this before you blow dry, straighten, or curl your hair. The hair stylist at the event blow dried my hair after they cleansed my hair and used the Styling Creme. My hair felt great with the mixture of WEN products. I also heard from other people at the event their hair grows faster when they use the WEN products. ;)
