There’s a hint of spring in the air today, as the mercury soars above 30 degrees. Yup, it’s truly been the winter of our discontent here in the Northeast where we have been “toughing it out” during what feels like a never-ending chill fest. Trust me when I say we’ll be paying close attention to that groundhog, come Sunday. The skin on my hands would welcome some warmer temps; I wonder if this feeling of parchment paper will become permanent. Because I have an overactive imagination, I sometimes find myself daydreaming about warm weather getaways to far-off lands. High on my list is Provence in summertime, with the sun beating down on those lush lavender fields that seem to go on for miles. No wonder then that we’re in love with a new skincare line from Lands’ End–yup, you heard that right. The clothing company that has outfitted your kids and family over the years is now entering the body care space with its Coastal Living collection. A trio of products, body wash, hand cream and body lotion, feature notes of lavender and honey which, as the packaging proclaims, “transport you to a lighthouse by the sea.” Your day starts off right with a body wash that cleans and hydrates worn-down skin. The body lotion nourishes winter skin with yummy shea butter, while the hand cream soothes chapped skin with vitamins A and E. Any product that makes us feel like we’ve left the building gets points in our book. So, until we can escape the cold once and for all, we’ll keep dreaming of sunny days by the sea…and breathing in the invigorating scent of fresh lavender fields.
In a Nutshell: A luxurious skincare assortment that conjures up sunny days on the coast.
