TréLuxe Product Review

wpid-tréluxe-logo-with-products.png.png

I emailed Cortney (the TréLuxe Co-founder and Creative Director) about reviewing their product line for my blog viewers and she was kind enough to send all four of the products in the line to me.

What really caught attention about this product line is The TréLuxe Philosophy which is : “All modern day brands should inspire confidence, be socially conscious, and contribute responsibly to society. These “3 C’s” of the TréLuxe Philosophy provide the foundation for all of our offerings. By empowering women to cultivate beauty from the inside out, we aim to help people everywhere to DEFINE themselves, ENHANCE their lives, and INSPIRE others.”

I love how this brand inspires women to find their inner beauty and inspire others to do so, also.

I can tell just by looking at their website that Cortney and her husband, Kiprono care about their customers and trying to help others better themselves. TréLuxe is all about empowerment and inspiration.

When the products first arrived, they were in a box and the inside lid had a message. I loved the personalization because it shows the TréLuxe community cares and wants their customers to know that. The packaging is also super cute and looks “luxe”.

UNTIE THE KNOT NOURISHING LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER:

Texture: this product was super creamy and lightweight.

wpid-20141208_154008-1.jpg
Price & Size: $18.50 for an 8oz bottle (it may seem expensive but when you look at the ingredients, it’s worth the price!)
Packaging: This product has a pump, which I love because the leave-in comes out so easily.

Smell: This product reminds me of the Fall time with pumpkin spice &cinnamon smell. It’s a calming smell to me but if you’re sensitive to smells, then this might bother you a little.
Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Propylene Glycol, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetrimonium Chloride, Steareth-2, Lactobacillus/Tomato Fruit Ferment Extract, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract, Keratin Amino Acids , Acyl Coenzyme A Desaturase, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Milk, Squalane (Olive derived), Ulmus Fulva (Slippery Elm) Bark Extract, Panthenol (Provitamin B5), Brassica Oleracea Italica (Broccoli) Seed Oil, Fragrance, Phenoxyethanol, Sorbic Acid, Caprylyl Glycol
KEY INGREDIENTS:

ALOE LEAF JUICE

COCONUT MILK

BROCOLLI SEED OIL

CLAIMS ON BACK: Let’s face it; mother nature can do some serious damage to our precious curls. A constant beating from the elements without the proper protection can leave curls dry, brittle and vulnerable to complex knots; but, there is hope. Untie the Knot™ Nourishing Leave-In Conditioner was designed with you in mind! The naturally based conditioner, specially formulated with coconut milk and olive-derived squalane, allows for ease of detangling while moisturizing and softening every strand of your textured tresses. The formula is reinforced with a combination of avocado and broccoli seed oils to smooth hair and seal the cuticle, helping to maintain healthy curls and coils in any weather. Avoid the damage that mother nature never intended!

Overall: I used this product on soaking wet hair because that’s what the directions say. I used too much the first time and I didn’t like my results. A little goes a LONG way with this! It was moisturizing my curls as soon as I applied it to my hair and it detangled my hair! I noticed this works better when I run warm water instead of cold water through my hair before because it helps the leave in penetrate better. This is super light-weight and can be used under a styler. Overall, I rate this a 9/10.

CURL SUPREME STYLING CREME:

Texture: This product was a butter type of texture and it was extremely smooth! As you can see, it was sort of like a whipped butter texture.

wpid-20141208_154233.jpg

Price & Size: $22 for an 8oz. This price is great considering that you only need THE SMALLEST amount of this to make it work.

Packaging: This product comes in a jar and it has quite a bit in it.

Smell: This has a light citrus smell and it smells soooo good!

Ingredients: Water, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice , Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Cetyl Alcohol (Coconut derived), Propylene Glycol, Lactobacillus/Tomato Fruit Ferment Extract, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract, Keratin Amino Acids , Acyl Coenzyme A Desaturase, Glyceryl Stearate, Capric/Caprylic Triglycerides (Coconut derived), Prunus Armenciaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Althea Officinalis Root (Marshmallow) Extract, Butryospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Carbomer, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Milk, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Triethanolamine, Squalane (Olive derived), Dehydroxanthan Gum, Emulsifying Wax, Fragrance, Phenoxyethanol, Sorbic Acid, Caprylyl Glycol

KEY INGREDIENTS:

COCONUT OIL

APRICOT OIL

SHEA NUT BUTTER

*THIS PRODUCT CAN BE HEAVY IF TOO MUCH IS USED DUE TO THE SHEA NUT BUTTER.

Claims on back: Luxe ladies, fear not….soft, moisturized, and defined curls are well within reach. Curl Supreme™ Styling Crème was designed to make your natural curl pattern take center stage, moisturizing your curly tresses along the way. This premium styler is packed with natural oils and extracts to conditioning hair and add lustrous shine, as the 360° Curls™ Complex regulates moisture and supplies the right amount of curl definition for the job. Formulated with just enough hold to maintain your style, this luxurious crème styler is great for luxe ladies with the coiliest of hair textures, as well as those with moderately curly hair who want to style with less hold and more moisture.

Overall: I applied this to SOAKING WET hair because that’s what the directions said. I applied this after I used the Untie the Knot leave-in then after I applied this, I used the Hi! Definition gel. My hair dried and it was SO weighed down. It had a residue feeling and I emailed Cortney (The Co-founder) about how to use it. Cortney suggested I don’t use this product because it will weigh my fine hair down. However, I told my brother to try it and his hair is coarser than mine. It worked beautifully alone for him! Overall, I rate this product a 3/10 because it was too heavy for my hair and the 3 points are because when I applied this to my hair, it melted in my hair like butter.

My brother’s results:

Hi! Definition Curl Enhancer:

wpid-20141208_153713.jpg

Texture: This product is a jelly type of gel and reminded me of the Shea Moisture Soufflé without the stickiness of the soufflé.

wpid-20141208_154205.jpg

Price and Size: $17 for an 8 oz. (GREAT PRICE because I see this lasting for a VERY long time!)

Packaging: This product comes in a jar like the Styling Crème. This is very helpful because you can just dip a finger in and that’s all you need!

Smell: This is a very citrus light smell. It’s a refreshing scent.

Claims on back: Say hi to amazing curl definition and bye to pesky frizz as Hi! Definition™ Curl Enhancer Styling Gel transforms tresses from lifeless to luxe in a snap. Our moisture and nutrient rich purée is infused with avocado, sage, and honey extracts, and is specifically formulated to provide enhanced curl definition and luminous shine with medium-to-high hold. Hi! Definition™ Curl Enhancer allows you to maintain styles for days instead of hours, giving you confidence in every curl!

OVERALL: This gel is AH-MAZ-ING! You only need the smallest amount. This works beautifully with the other products in this line. I applied it to soaking wet hair and used it after I used the Untie the Knot Leave-in and the Reflex Serum. My hair dried in 3 hours and my hair usually takes about 5-6 hours to fully dry. I was in shock with my results.It dried crunchy but once I scrunched my hair, my hair was soft! It was so light-weight! I loved it! It lasted a whole 6 days! Overall, this product definitely is a 10/10!

ReFlex Curl Styling Serum:

wpid-20141208_153841.jpg

Texture:

This was a serum and it was very watery.

wpid-20141208_154112.jpg

Price and Size: $18.50 for an 8oz (It’s pretty pricey but DEF worth it!)

Packaging: I liked this packaging because a serum would be messy if it had a pump. It’s a push tab top and you have to squeeze it out.

Smell: It has a light smell and it doesn’t have an over-powering smell. It smells very good to me, sort of like argan oil.

Ingredients: Water, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Propylene Glycol, Lactobacillus/Tomato Fruit Ferment Extract, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract, Keratin Amino Acids, Acyl Coenzyme A Desaturase, Cetrimonium Chloride, Hydroxyethyl Cellulose, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Water, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, Polyquaternium-10, Juniperus Communis (Juniper Berry) Fruit Extract, Polysorbate-20, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, Fragrance, Phenoxyethanol, Sorbic Acid, Caprylyl Glycol

KEY INGREDIENTS:

ALOE LEAF JUICE

COCONUT WATER

GRAPE SEED EXTRACT

OVERALL: At first this was the product I wasn’t looking forward to trying. When I emailed Cortney, she said that the serum would work great for fine hair like mine. I used it on soaking wet hair and used about a quarter size amount. I tried it with the Hi! Definition gel and Untie the Knot Leave-in and it worked GREAT! It was shiny, soft, and my hair didn’t get tangled after a few days. Overall, I rate this product 10/10.

This wash-n-go lasted 6 days without refreshing it with water.

These products are Glycerin free so they are GREAT for winter!

TréLuxe Products are now HOLY GRAIL and I will continue to support such a great brand.

These products are made with all hair types in mind so it will work for many fellow curly girls or guys.

The ingredients are AMAZING and these products have all natural ingredients.

I honestly think these products are one of the best products I’ve tried while on my curly journey.
