{Test This} WEN Hair Care

——————————————————————————————————————————————

Nothing gets your hair cleaner than a lathering shampoo…right? Wrong, say reps at WEN.

The haircare system, represented by celeb stylist Chaz Dean, doesn’t include shampoo which “can strip your hair of natural essential oils and leave it unmanageable,” says the company. Instead, the WEN Haircare System (retail value: $29.95 for a 30-day supply) includes a no-lather conditioner (that cleanses and conditions the hair in one step), a styling cream, an “intensive” hair treatment, a texture balm and a comb.

All the products in their system are sulfate-free, made of natural ingredients and instead of lathering, “create smooth foam when mixed with water for shinier, healthier-looking, more manageable results.”

According to the WEN website, “In a 3-week study of users of WEN cleansing conditioner, 97.5% of participants saw more shine, 90% of participants saw less frizz and 90% of participants saw more bounce and body.”

We’re conducting our own study…5 FOFs will put the WEN Haircare System to the test and report back.

{Test This} Karuna Age-Defying Mask

——————————————————————————————————————————————

Face masks have been used for beauty for thousands of years. According to Victoria Sherrow, author of “For Appearance’ Sake: The Historical Encyclopedia of Good Looks, Beauty, and Grooming,” ancient Egyptians would treat their skin with masks made from egg whites, mud from the Dead Sea and ant eggs. Yuck!

One company, Karuna, takes a modern approach to beauty masks. While, all their masks contain natural ingredients such as Chinese licorice, aloe vera and chamomile, the delivery system is quite advanced. Made from wood-pulp, Karuna masks, “deposit 50% more moisture than synthetic masks, allowing pores to fully dilate and drink in the beneficial ingredients,” according to the the company.

Karuna reps say their Age-Defying Mask (retail value: $28 for 4 masks) will “promote skin that looks younger and feels more resilient.” Once a week, just “unfold…and place…on [your] face,” then “relax for 10-20 minutes,” says the company. While you relax, natural ingredients including Chinese licorice, wild yam and elderberry extracts work on your skin “improving cell vitality” and leaving you with a feeling of “hydration, nourishment and renewal.”

We want to know: Is this product a blessing in disguise? 5 FOFs will put Karuna’s Age-Defying Mask to the test. Leave a comment below for a chance to win.
