Hello from Utah! I am here for the week for work and I have to tell you, I am really loving it here! The mountains are beautiful and so are the fall colors – which I don’t see too much in Southern California. AND the food isn’t too shabby either. I just wish there was more Asian foods but other than that – I think I want to live the nice small town life. Traveling gets me thinking a lot about skincare. I get really dry skin when I fly so that mixed with sensitive skin doesn’t not do well!
I did a review on the Malin+Goetz samples that I got in my April Birchbox a few months back and I fell in love with the products. I was at Larchmont with my friends last month when I stumbled upon the Malin+Goetz store right next to Salt & Straw. I walked on in and of course, purchased a few items. The best thing about this place was that the associate inside gave me a TON of samples. SO MANY SAMPLES! He even gave the 2 friends with me a bag FULL of samples. Best EVER!
This brand is great if you have sensitive skin and they don’t test on animals. Win win! Ever since I turned 30, my skin has turned extremely sensitive. Who wants to be traveling and have a surprise break out? Not I! I love how everything smells really clean (not gross) and isn’t very harsh on my skin. Keep on reading for some reviews….
Malin+Goetz Eucalyptus Deodorant | $20: The smell reminds me of the locker room at Soulcycle. They probably use a ton of eucalyptus in their locker rooms to help with the germs. I really like using natural deodorant. I’m not too fond of deodorant that doesn’t let you sweat or is too heavily scented. This was the perfect choice. I don’t mind if I’m sweating because I wear it when I work out and that’s what you’re supposed to do. If you do end up using this, keep note that if you’ve been using regular pore-clogging deodorant – your body may produce more sweat. This actually happened to me and I thought I was going crazy. After about a week or two, my body’s equilibrium is back to normal.
Malin+Goetz SPF 30 Face Moisturizer | $36: This is light weight and feels like it’s whipped. There isn’t really a scent, it absorbs quickly and doesn’t interfere with my face makeup. I absolutely love using it as my day moisturizer. It’s water-resistant which is great if you need that.
Malin+Goetz Grapefruit Face Moisturizer | $32: I did a review on this for my April Birchbox review so I won’t review it again here. I still love it. It’s great and if you have sensitive skin – definitely try this out and this brand.
So in conclusion – try it out. The brand seems very generous in having you try out their products prior to purchasing them. The products smell clean, it’s gentle, and I feel like I’m using something that’s semi-natural. I like that.
I will be updating my Instagram with fun things I see in Utah this week, so if you are interested – stop on by!
