Do You Need Some Retail Therapy

Are you missing Shopping?
Would a couple of clever, considered additions to your wardrobe be just the mood boost you need – it’s not called Retail Therapy for nothing :).

We are certainly missing seeing you face to face. Online Shopping just doesnt cut it for lots of us, garments are never quite the colour, fabric or shape they look on the model and it often leads to disappointment.
Great News, we can still bring you the Personal Shopping Experience and have designed a Virtual VIP Shop to make sure you get all of the benefits (& more) with none of the drawbacks of online.

You simply book a timeslot with us & we set up the Zoom Session.
We send you our Brochure of beautiful, but wearable French Clothing in sizes 6-24, to browse.
We preselect items on our rail which we know will flatter you in colour, shape & style personality.
During the session, we can talk you through fabrics, show you details & look in your wardrobe to pair up looks, with garments you already have, advise on finishing off with shoes etc
We can then order and post to you any items you wish to try in the comfort of your own home.
Its a complete Shop & Style Experience without you having to leave the house and until the end of March, the session is FREE, PLUS we are offering a half price scarf with every 3 garments purchased.
Get in touch to book your slot and/or to see our Lookbooks.

Dress Happy

We know it seems like an effort to dress up when you’ve nowhere to go & nobody new to see, but once again we promise, taking a little care over what you wear each day, will lift YOUR spirits and we are all about how You feel about You 🙂
FACT : You can be comfortable, but still look stylish – Here are our top 3 easy tips :

Colour – you know this is often a number 1 for us, but that’s because it works! Try It – Wear colour rather than black or grey and watch your mood (and that of those around you) lift!
Shapes – Let’s be honest most loungewear may be comfy but its often not flattering. Our Collection is the definition of comfortable chic – Our jeans for example have lots of stretch so feel like joggers, but still look stylish or we have jackets that have the comfort of cardis but look smarter and with more style details that elevate your look.
Accessories – A scarf is always a great addition & a hard working, multi purpose piece – it can keep you warm, its an instant injection of colour and adds elegance to your outfit, giving you a chic, put together look.

Treat Yourself Tuesday

We are all feeling in need of a little extra self care at the moment, so we wanted to treat you every week! Every Tuesday at around 2pm we will be going live in our VIP Facebook Group with a special offer or treat just for you.
Because YOU are worth it 🙂
Join us at 2 to watch live and chat with us or watch it later that day. If you are not a member of our VIP Style Soulmates Group on Facebook- send us a message and we will add you – you don’t want to miss out!!!

Making the Most of Your Mask

There is no getting away from the fact face masks are here to stay for the foreseeable future so here are our Style Savvy Solutions to making the best of this season’s must have accessory …

– Choose in your best neutral colours to avoid expensive changes – patterns are great but beware they can clash with your outfits
– Use good tones to accentuate your eyes and bounce your colour up – all your colour clothing principles apply.
– Concentrate more on your eye makeup as often that’s all people see. You can use all our colour & style guidelines for eye makeup or get in touch if you’d like to join a Virtual Cosmetics Class.
– To save your lippy ending up all over your mask with none left on your lips, Blot your lipstick then touch up with gloss when you get to your table. ��

TALKING OF MASKS, WITH OUR TROPIC SKINCARE AMBASSADORS HAT ON – ARE YOU SUFFERING FROM MASKNE?
Have you heard of this? As we all have to wear Face Masks (& not the lovely spa related, relaxing type) every day now. Learning how to wear one without damaging your skin is crucial! They can lead to issues with the skin underneath and often cause unwanted breakouts because under a face mask the skin encounters higher levels of humidity than usual, due to an excess of trapped exhaled air. This changes the skin’s microclimate and upsets the skin’s natural microflora, so the pH balance of the skin can change significantly. Due to high moisture under the mask area, skin perspires less, gets clogged easily, and the growth of acne-causing bacteria leads to breakouts. Eek ��
Here’s our Tropic Founder & Skincare Expert, Susie Ma’s quick plan of action to help avoid blemishes and keep skin glowing and healthy!
1 BEFORE YOU GO OUT – DOUBLE THE CLEANSE – Ensure you start with as clean a face as possible by supercharging your cleansing routine. For us, Smoothing Cleanser followed by Clear Skies is the perfect dynamic duo. While Smoothing Cleanser gently melts away your makeup, Clear Skies effortlessly removes any unwanted clouds of excess oil. In fact, according to recent clinical trials, Clear Skies reduces excess sebum on the skin by 81% after one use.
2 BANISH THE BLEMISH – Feeding your skin’s natural eco flora is imperative to banishing blemishes. Pure Lagoon Blemish Prevention Serum is our favourite antidote to a day of masked missions – the efficacy of the formulation is like no other! When we asked our customers to tell us what they thought, 73% of them told us that Pure Lagoon minimised the amount of new blemishes that formed in previous problem areas. Even your face covering won’t hide your astonishment at the results that this little blue bottle can bring!
3 GO LIGHT ON THE HYDRATION – You still need to hydrate with an oil or moisturiser but you don’t need to overload on ‘under mask’ areas. Super Greens Nutrient Boost Oil is a fast-absorbing, nutrient-rich oil which will work day and night to keep skin nourished. Our Antioxidant rich Skin Feast Nourishing Cream Concentrate also helps to keep skin healthy with a boost of powerful antioxidants and actives. It provides just the right amount of hydration to keep skin balanced.
4 WHEN YOU GET HOME, CLEAN AWAY THE DAY – As soon as you get home after a prolonged mask-wearing period, double cleanse again with Smoothing Cleanser and Clear Skies to remove any impurities and keep skin feeling as fresh as possible.
5 MASKING NICELY – Remedying mask damage with more masks may seem counter-intuitive, but trust us, it works. Our Clear Skin Blemish-fighting Mask with salicylic acid and ginger extract kills blemish causing bacteria and keeps breakouts at bay. Put this on problem areas once or twice a week for gleaming, balanced skin.
So next time you’re stepping out of the house armed with your protective facial gear, you can rest easy in the knowledge that your skincare routine will remedy any unwanted blemishes that come out to play. As we adjust to the stresses of this unexpected ‘new normal’, it’s more important than ever to take care of each and every crevice of your complexion.xx
