Fragrant Friday - Belif The Garden

Energize your senses with the first fragrance from belif:
Belif The Garden - 50ml EDP - $80 - an invigorating fruity citrus and floral fragrance that takes you on a stroll into the garden with opening notes of sparkling citrus and sweet berry; heart notes of dewy spring blossoms and white flower; and a base of smooth white musk and woods wrapped in an earthy base for an unforgettable fragrance with a bright, fresh feeling. 
The fragrance truly is an ode to springtime - my best description is light and happy - and really who can't use a bit (lot) of that?! Even the sunny yellow bottle has me thinking spring thoughts!

This week I'm obsessed with... Splat Naturals Semi-Permanent Hair Color!

Get the perfect ultra-vivid, head-turning colour transformation with:
Splat Naturals Semi-Permanent Hair Color - 177ml - $24.95 - available in 4 shades: Pink, Purple, Blue and Teal - features a 95% natural formula with an ultra-conditioning base that's infused with Baobab Seed Oil - moisturizes, provides shine and helps protect from UV rays; Quinoa Extracts  - packed with vitamins and minerals to help prevent breakage; and Pro-Vitamin B5 - for extra hydration to help increase shine and condition hair. 
Great for all-over color, streaks, ombre looks or dip dye - I especially like the easy squeeze packaging which is 90% sustainable and much easier to use then the pots of colour. Colour lasts 4-6 weeks or up to 30 washes. And it's free of bleach, parabens, sulfates, PPD, ammonia and fragrance. 
It's important to note that it's meant for blonde hair - I loved the idea of pink hair and gave it a try but my hair is a medium auburn so I have a pinkish glow in sunlight now but not the vivid pink I was imagining... I don't think I will be bleaching out my whole head anytime soon but I might give a few streaks a try...
Application is easy - check out the video below and start envisioning your own unicorn hair!

I'm just bananas for the new Quo Beauty Banana Cleansing Balm!

Quo Beauty Banana Cleansing Balm - 50g - $20 - packed with skin conditioning and hydrating agents such as banana extract this transformative formula melts away make-up and moisturizes thirsty skin - to leave it feeling deeply cleansed, hydrated and feeling soft and smooth with a visibly fresh and dewy glow.
You use it a bit differently then your usual cleanser - it's applied to dry skin, not wet and you just need a tiny dime-sized amount of product gently massaged into dry skin - rinse well with water and pat dry - and it really does just melt away dirt and makeup!
My skin feels so moisturized afterwards that I've given up moisturizer and moved to a serum instead - this new one from Quo Beauty does the trick:

Quo Beauty Hydrating Facial Serum - 30ml - $20 - with a lightweight texture that leaves skin feeling soft and smooth with a velvety finish. The formula contains vitamin C - to help even out the skin tone while helping diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; sodium hyaluronate (a derivative of hyaluronic acid) - penetrates deeper layers of the skin to attract and hold moisture which, overtime, works to enhance and replenish skin.
