Vintage Vixens Will Swoon for Zolia Vera

Share this:

Next time someone foolishly suggests you’re way too excited about soap, you can simply show them Zolia Vera. Born out of a love of all things vintage, a killer aesthetic, and a need to get her hands dirty, this Maine-based beauty shop is truly the bees knees. All of the products are made in small batches and represent years of development and experimentation. To make the good even better, they’re ethically sourced and cruelty-free. The end result is luxurious soaps and elixirs that make us feel like queens.

Nothing elevates a normal shower like a bar of truly special soap, and Zolia Vera has plenty to choose from.

Sure, it’s going to be winter soon, but that’s no reason to give up on our lovely autumn scents. If you love spiced apple scents as much as we do, you’ll want a bite of this wicked fruit. (Don’t eat it though, obviously.) Poison Apple Bar//$8.95

Not content to be a one trick pony, Zolia Vera also has a wide array of products beyond soaps. With goodies from elixirs to makeup, we’re so excited to see where they’ll go next.

Everyone deserves a little pampering now and then. If you’re in the gift giving mood, Zolia Vera has you covered. Also, because they’re the definition of class, you can add a custom message to any order that will be typed on their 1935 Underwood Typewriter and sealed with black wax.

There’s only one issue we have with Zolia Vera, and that is their tag line: The Beauty Anachronism. It’s impossible for anything this lovely to be an anachronism, because it’s timeless. To make it even better, they’re super easy to connect with thanks to that marvelous wonder of the modern age, the Internet. Follow them on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to get in on the fun. Also, consider becoming a Darling of the Z.V. Society for all sorts of insider goodies.
