Give Great Scents

We love giving gorgeous little gifts for the holidays, especially when said gifts are made by Indiana based artisans and makers. Enter Amber Blends, one of our fav-o-rite fragrance lines, that just so happens to be made just south of us in Indianapolis. 

The range of unisex fragrances is unique and luxurious and features natural ingredients. The scents are sultry and warm, and as they mix with the wearer's unique chemistry, they deepen for a customized finish. We know women who've lost their bottles to their husbands and vice versa, so we're confident these fragrances are gifts anyone will enjoy. 

Our sister store, The FIND, caught up with the owners of Ambre Blends to chat about the history of the company, current products and what we'll be wearing from them next year.

Read the blog post then come shop the comprehensive line of fragrances and bath & body products for those on your gift list - or for yourself (we won't tell).

Smell ya later!

Lip Service

In these dog days of Summer, we like to put on the least amount of makeup we can get away with. With a clean and simple face, a pop of color on the lips is the perfect warm weather look. Best of all, it's easy. We've long been smitten with Henné Organics' line of luxurious lip care products and now that they've added color, we've taken our relationship to the next level. As in, you'll always find at least one tube of Henné in our handbags at any given time. The classic balm is a no-brainer for the softest lips around and the scrubs are must-haves for flake-free puckers. Make them part of your regular daily and nightly skincare regime and you'll always be perfectly kissable, year round. 

Henné Organics' Lip Tints are intensely hydrating and impart the most lovely, sheer, yet buildable, color. Azalea is vibrant and playful, while Bare is a delicate nude hue and is perfectly versatile. Coral adds a warm glow to any complexion, and Intrigue is a dark red that adds a hint of drama. All four shades complement every skin tone, thanks to the formula's luminous tint.

Come try on these lovely, lippies for yourself! 

Introducing the Trove Ambassadors

We've partnered with five dynamic, young and local ladies who adore style as much as we do. You might have seen them popping up in our social media feeds or even in store. Led by our marketing intern, Jessica Carroll, our Ambassador program is meant to provide inspiration and opportunity for them as well as for us Trovesters. We'll be regularly sharing their favorite things from our shelves as well as their perspective on style. This is just the beginning of a beautiful friendship!

My current fave from The Trove is Little Barn Apothecary's coffee and mint body scrub. It leaves your body feeling incredibly soft and moisturized and the scent is the perfect pick-me-up."

"I'm a Senior at Homestead High School, attending Ball State University in the Fall, to study Journalism and Marketing. I spend most of my time with a book in one hand and coffee in the other, but enjoy doing anything outside, spending time with friends hiking and exploring. My favorite product from The Trove is anything and everything POL - there isn't a piece I don't love."

I have a passion for photography, hiking and generally spending time outdoors and I just can't get enough time with dogs.

Lip Service

We Trovesters love little luxuries. What could be better than an accessible touch of glamour as part of your am and pm skincare routines as well as on the go? High quality, safe beauty products and chic design, at an affordable price, is why we adore Henné Organics. The brand's vision "is to reintroduce a splash of luxury into the everyday without sacrificing design, ethics or one’s health. A modern and minimalistic approach replaces standard lip care products with something extraordinary."



Founder, Laura Xiao, says, "Living abroad and moving frequently forced me to declutter and truly focus on the essentials. When you’re living out of suitcases for several years, you quickly realize what’s important and what you can be without. This habit quickly developed into an essential part of my being and has led to a strong appreciation for beauty in simplicity and luxury in the basics." Thus, Henné Organics was born with a well-edited range of lip care products that bring a touch of elegance to an everyday, typically utilitarian, product.

New to the line is the cult fave lip balm in tube form, the highly anticipated Luxury Lip Balm V2. This sleek tube joins the best selling Luxury Lip Balm and Rose Diamonds Lip Exfoliator, both available in chic little pots. All Henné Organics products contain natural and organic ingredients proven to heal and soothe delicate skin. 

Come experience Henné Organics for yourself and pick up a few extras for stocking stuffers or girlfriend gifts! We believe everyone needs a little bit of luxury every day.

Current Obsession: Charcoal

When it comes to beautifying potions, these days we're all about charcoal. This unlikely ingredient can be found from some fab beauty brands and we're so in love, we stock a few charcoal products.

Because charcoal attracts toxins, it's brilliant at cleansing every skin type. Charcoal can help make pores appear smaller, balance oily skin, treat acne, detoxify and soothe irritated skin. In basic terms, you need this multi-benefit ingredient in your life, STAT.

Little Barn Apothecary's best-selling Charcoal + Aloe Foaming Face Cleanser draws out pollutants, helps to heal and prevent breakouts while gently hydrating. With additional ingredients of hemp seed and essential oils, this effective facial cleanser cleans with a smooth and silky lather. $22

FoxSea Skin's Konjac Cleansing Sponge works with your favorite cleanser du jour or simply water to deeply cleanse and gently exfoliate. When properly cared for, this inexpensive tool can last a couple of months. $8

Gentle enough to use every day, Herbivore Botanicals' Bamboo Charcoal Detoxifying Bar Soap gives both face and body a deep cleanse. This soap is especially great for oily, combination or acne-prone skins. $12

Talk Herby To Me

Skin is the body's largest organ. Thus, it's vital we take great care of it. We Trovesters believe skincare is best when it's as natural as possible while still being effective. While we've come across many skincare lines in our travels, we are especially impressed with Herbivore Botanicals. The range includes luxurious products, full of pure, highly concentrated, non-toxic ingredients. We'll be honest and say we also fell madly in love with the simply gorgeous packaging. 

Indulge in the highest quality facial oils, sea salts that infuse bath water with nourishing and soothing minerals and an aprés sun hydrator for thirsty and overheated skin.

Restore vitality to skin with luxurious facial oils, formulated with beneficial vitamins and essential oils.

With lavender and eucalyptus essential oils as well as Cambrian Blue clay, the Detox Bath Salts help to clear body and mind.

Bamboo Charcoal and Pink Clay soaps cleanse as well as draw out impurities without stripping skin of moisture, for both face and body.

A hydrating facial mist is a must-have for supple, radiant skin and can be spritzed throughout the day, even over makeup. Body oils provide skin with advanced hydration and a subtle glow.
