Blooming Dream Quattro EDP Natural Perfume Oil Review

Blooming Dream Quattro perfume

Aren’t we all sick of winter? Well, let’s try to break out of this winter funk with “green” perfumes that bring to mind spring buds and summer sunshine.

Badger Hair Oil

Badger Seabuckthorn Hair Oil contains a blend of organic ingredients such as seabuckthorn oil, sunflower oil, apricot oil, pomegranate oil and essential fragrance oils. This is a hair treatment that you apply evenly to your hair and leave on for 1 hour or sleep on it overnight. And then you shampoo and style as usual.
