Soap doesn't usually get a lot of credit these days. After all it's been around since the beginning of time and there isn't usually a lot of glamour that surrounds this user friendly beauty item. Until now. New Zealand skincare line Cor Silver provides hassle free and one step solutions to address the core skincare issues in one application. One of their most popular products is Cor Silver Soap that was just featured in The Zoe report sister newsletter Zoe Beautiful. One of the best benefits in this multi-tasker is the fact that it was conceived to enhance the power of your sunscreen. Crazy right?

The great thing about technology is that it's constantly evolving and giving us products that make our beauty life a heck of a lot easier. No better example can be shown than with our latest arrival, Thairapy 365.
This cutting edge hair tool brand has a niche group of products that are devoted to specializing in caring for your hair while improving it.

One of the stand-outs in the range has to be Thairapy 365's World's Fastest Flat Iron. Yes indeedy, the fastest!

Shop the Soleil Organique full collection here!
SPF application has never been a luxurious task, until now. Soleil Organique is a relevant and shall I say trendy (I'm starting the trend by the way) line of naturally based sun care products. From their tan and gold packaging that has been seen on the stylish sands of St Barths, Mystique and Barbados and in the hands of the most beautiful beach dwellers, this 100% marine and mineral based line is the next generation in sun care.
Soleil Organique's mineral sunscreens come in a variety of application types and product varieties. From the 100% Mineral Sunblock Mist SPF 45, that comes in a convenient non-aerosol pump for easy application to the Environmental Defense Moisturizer For Face SPF 20, which is a an anti-oxidant rich, everyday moisturizer that also helps to prevent premature aging.
One of my personal favorites is the Environmental Defense Hand Cream SPF 15. You have no idea how badly our hands are exposed to the sun just doing regular activities, the worst being driving. If you know you're going to be in the car for a long time, hand on the wheel and fully exposed to the suns ray's, then this really is a key product to carry in your purse or leave in a cool place in your car.

I'm madly, desperately, unequivocally in love with Tocca's latest fragrance, Violette Eau de Parfum. Although I haven't had the privilege of going to Paris yet, I imagine this perfume sums up springtime in one of the most romantic cities in the world. Although I'm on the fence when it comes to 'florals,' this uber-picky girl couldn't help but fall in love with the soft notes of Italian Bergamot, African Violet and Creamy Cedarwood. Tocca's Violette evokes the whirlwind romance between a young soldier on leave and a young girl at the fragrance counter of Le Bon Marche in 1940's Paris. Ohhhhh, so frenchy so chic!

Shop the full Ineke Parfum collection here!
Do you ever smell a perfume and think, "that reminds me of Paris" or "this smells like falling in love for the first time"? I personally love fragrances that are created with a story and thought process behind it. This makes choosing yours a lot more personal when you can identify with it. One of our latest perfume arrivals that really has great thought behind all their fragrances is Ineke Parfums. The genius or "nose" behind the brand is founder and owner Ineke Ruhland and all of her scents aim to evoke stories of romance, nature, chemistry and courage.
One of the factors I notice before making a final purchase of a perfume is not only the scent but the perfumes packaging design. You always feel a little more special seeing a beautiful bottle on your vanity and knowing your favorite perfume can also serve as a beautiful show piece. Each perfume is presented in clear cylindrical glass bottles with a chic square top. One of my favorites is Ineke's Gilded Lily which is described as a "Shakespeare meets manga" scent with fruity highlights of gold band lily of Japan, Rhubarb and Patchouli.
