I originally tried Wen Spring Gardenia Green Tea when I bought this QVC TSV back in December 2013, which was a set of 4 seasonals and the Pomegranate. Also note that this will probably be a QVC TSV this December since it was for the past 3 years.
I fell in love with Spring Gardenia Green Tea as soon as I first cleansed my hair with it, unfortunately for me I was unable to repurchase it at the time. When I saw that Chaz Dean brought it back this year I just HAD to pick up a big bottle of it! I’m so glad I did! Click down below to see how it compares to the new Spring Honey Lilac Wen seasonal!
What it promises:
What is it: The WEN Spring Seasonal line is expanding to include their newest formula, Spring Honey Lilac. Get a taste of the season with a choice of Spring Honey Lilac, Spring Orange Blossom, or Spring Gardenia Green Tea Cleansing Conditioner.
Who is it for: Perfect for anyone looking to simplify their hair-care routine and have beautiful, healthier-looking hair. With one product, you replace your shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, leave-in, and detangler.
Why is it different: Chaz Dean designed this Cleansing Conditioner from the ground up. His universal formula is the perfect cleanser for all hair types and textures.
How do I use it: Apply the Cleansing Conditioner to the scalp and hair per the label directions, adding a splash of water to evenly distribute. Massage thoroughly into hair and leave on for the
remainder of your shower. Rinse thoroughly and completely. Apply 1/2 to 1 pump depending on hair length and texture as a leave-in conditioner to soaking wet hair. For best results, Chaz suggests you cleanse, rinse, and repeat, using half the pumps for the first cleanse, and the remaining half for the second cleanse.
What I found:
As stated above in my intro blurp I am absolutely in love with Gardenia Green Tea and just had to get it in the big size!
This smells just as good as I remember. I opened the Honey Lilac first and used it for a full week before I opened my GGT. I have to admit Honey Lilac was much creamier and easier to message into my hair.
Does that make me love GGT any less? No! It just goes to show that all formulas are different! I feel like the Seasonals are improving in quality to the last two years in my opinion.
For this cleansing Conditioner I use 5-6 for my scalp, than 1 for my ends on the first wash. On the second was I use 4 for my scalp and 1 for my ends. I have fine, shoulder length hair.
I also like using this as a leave in conditioner now, I use about a nickel size on my soaking wet hair really message it into my ends. I then run the rest through my hair top to bottom. My hair stylist commented on how much less dead ends she had to cut off since I started using the WEN as a leave in.
Gardenia Green Tea leaves my hair soft and manageable. My highlights really shine through when I use Wen, scouts honor!
- Easy to message into hair
- Shiny hair
- Super soft ends
- Great as a leave in conditioner, a nickel size
- Smells devine
- The price makes me cry a bit
- Not as creamy or easy to message in as the new Honey Lilac Cleansing conditioner
Also just for posting sake to keep everything in one place below is a photo of my hair before using Wen:

VERDICT: I am in love with this scent of cleansing conditioner, my hair just feel amazing! I recommend this to everyone! Your hair will thank you! Better pick this up soon! It won’t be available after May 31st!!!
