Finn & Co. Combines Luxury and The Beach

By Lynn N. Capri

style-and-beauty-finn-co1Made in Maine, Finn & Co. is a fabulous, luxury skin care line inspired by the fresh-faced, natural beauty one associates with life on the beach. A mix of “white T-shirt” simplicity and “little black dress” sophistication, the line was designed for women who would rather care for their skin naturally than go under the knife or the needle. Creator Meg Spencer explains, “I grew up on the coast of Maine and spent summers in Nantucket, and there’s nothing that compares to fresh-faced beach beauty,” Spencer says. “As an experienced aesthetician, I found that many women prefer a manageable beauty routine that focuses on really good skin care products that have a variety of uses…add just a little makeup and a dab of fragrance….that’s real beauty in my opinion.”

From the Luxury Collection, I think the Face Oil is a standout. The first product in the line, this is Meg Spencer’s favorite, and it’s easy to see why. As a woman nearing 50, I find the moisture in this product second to none. An exceptional blend of plant and essential oils, including Neroli, the 11 highly concentrated oils penetrate the skin with nourishing, hydrating, and revitalizing effects. The Luxury Body Oil includes 8 oils that hydrate without feeling greasy. Packed with antioxidants, fatty acids, protein, and minerals, it’s wonderful for full-body coverage.

The Sea Class collection accomplishes something absolutely amazing, something that would seem impossible: the Black Sand Fragrance and Body Cream and White Sand Fragrance and Body Cream smell exactly like the ocean air…it’s truly uncanny! Infused with exotic coconut butter and apricot seed oil, the creams are great for all skin types, especially dry and sensitive. Don’t need the moisture but love the scent? The light citrus fragrance of White Sand is perfect for daytime and will make you feel like you’re taking a leisurely stroll along the beach. Black Sand has a warm, musky scent that will bring to mind the summer breeze coming off the ocean. (I’m not sure the Meg had this use in mind when she created the line, but I keep an extra White Sand Fragrance, top off, in my living room because it adds just the perfect hint of summer to the room year ‘round.)
