I love value sets; there's something about getting small sizes of a lot of different products for a discounted price that really appeals to me (as I'm sure it appeals to many other people, too). I particularly love sets that include a variety of brands, which is why my favorite value sets come from Sephora. While I have become more flexible with where I purchase my mid/high end makeup from (I used to almost exclusively shop at Sephora, but now I shop at both Sephora and Ulta), I still look to Sephora for value sets, since Ulta rarely, if ever, offers any that are a mixture of brands.
While the two other kits, called Pump Up The Volume and Revitalize Your Hair, have more products and higher retail values than this one, I will get a lot more use out of the products in this kit, Show Your Style. I was particularly interested in two products: the Color Wow One Minute Transformation Styling Cream and the DevaCurl Supercream Coconut Curl Styler since I already know I like both of them, and I've always been curious to try the Crack Original Styling Creme.
After using these products, I'm pretty impressed! I'm very picky about hair cleansing/conditioning products; most shampoos tend to make my hair feel worse after using them, but this shampoo made my hair feel clean, but not dry or damaged. A lot of conditioners will either not provide enough hydration or they will be too heavy and make my hair look piecey and greasy, but this conditioner is well-balanced and leaves my hair soft and manageable, but still light and natural. My husband even gave these a try (I brought them along on a trip) and he really liked them, too! These are pretty expensive at $23-$25 per full size bottle, but I think the quality is comparable to similarly priced brands, such as Pureology, so I don't feel like they are overpriced.
Overall, if you're interested in trying two or three of the products in the Show Your Style kit, I'd recommend getting it. A lot of travel sizes from salon brands retail for $5-$10 each, so at $10 for five, you're getting an excellent deal. Be sure to check out the other two kits as well, since they're an equally good value (I didn't purchase them because the products didn't interest me). As for the StriVectin Hair products, I'd definitely suggest purchasing one of the starter trios before investing in the full size products, but I was impressed with the Color Care products I tried and may consider purchasing the full sizes once I run out of my AG liters!
