1st MALIN+GOETZ BBQ of Summer 2014

This weekend I attended my first official BBQ of the summer. And while I was merely a guest of a guest, I stretched out on a bench with chilled white wine like I owned the place. New York was blessed with beautiful weather this weekend. It was glorious and it got my wheels spinning to start planning an M+G BBQ! I started gathering the must-haves for our next shindig…

I like to start my summer days with the Vitamin B5 Body Lotion. I can’t stand dry skin and our new Vitamin B5 Body Lotion allows me to hydrate without feeling sticky on these humid New York summer days.

Obviously – M+G SPF 30 Face Moisturizer. What kind of skincare professionals would we be if we didn’t protect our skin as a group?

If you know us at all then you know we’ll definitely cool down with something festive, like sangria.

Here’s my Summer White Sangria Recipe –

Soak peaches, raspberries and strawberries in 1/2 cup honey, ½ cup cognac and ½ cup orange liquor for at least a few hours. Overnight if possible.

Add 2 bottles of reasonably priced white wine. Either pinot grigio or sauvignon blanc.

Add 1 liter of seltzer water.

Serve over ice.


Lastly, we’ll need some good ole fashion games to keep us entertained. Here’s what I’m thinking –

volleyball, Pin the Tail on Mr. Greenberg, and of course… Beer Pong!

Almost forgot, I know what I’m wearing!

Nothing like a tipsy 3-legged race to build the bond between you and your coworkers. Cheers!

Memorial Day Weekend M+G Essentials

I’m so excited to finally have a weekend at home after my recent travels, but that doesn’t mean I’m not taking full advantage of the long Memorial Day weekend. I’m thinking my special homemade BBQ chicken, grilled peaches, and white sangria in the park with some friends and hopefully a patch of shade.

Let’s talk about weekend essentials…

If you are leaving town, our Essential Kit is a must! It’s airplane friendly and ready to go when you are, a 1oz of cleanser+moisturizer for face, body and hair.

Bug Spray. Mosquitoes love my Southern nectar, so I tote my M+G Bug Spray everywhere. It’s 100% natural, repelling bugs with rosemary, citronella, lemongrass and geranium essential oils.

The last one is a no brainer – our SPF30 Face Moisturizer. It is no secret that my porcelain skin burns, so I wear SPF daily. Now that warmer temperatures are here, I will definitely be taking my M+G SPF30 with me on my park days. This oil-free broad spectrum formula absorbs immediately and protects from UVA & UVB rays.

Hope everyone has a safe and fun holiday weekend!

 

Memorial Day Weekend M+G Essentials

Back to the Windy City.

Last month I found myself back to the Windy City, and it definitely lived up to its name. I traded one snowy tundra for another, but the one thing I gained was that Midwestern sunny disposition. Despite their smiles, Chicagoans as a whole are 100% completely over this winter. Which is a mentality, we New Yorkers, gladly share. I will say that even though those -30 nights cut like a knife, the city and our accounts, welcomed me with open arms. No matter where I was – Barneys, Bloomingdale’s, Haberdash, Smith & Davis, and MildBlend – the willingness to chat and share winter war stories presented itself daily. Considering this trip, we were dealing with a completely different set of temperatures, I talked up how I keep my skin hydrated and fresh thanks to M+G. I was even lucky enough to get some tips in return. This time of year I rely on a few drops of Chamomile Treatment Oil to calm and soothe redness, and then follow it with the Replenishing Face Cream to deeply hydrate and brighten my parched skin. A new tip I took home – incorporate the Chamomile Treatment Oil with the Jojoba Face Scrub to achieve extra hydration + exfoliation.

Valentine’s Day Pampering.

Everyone makes plans on Valentine’s Day, whether it’s with your significant other, your best buds, or Netflix. No matter what your plans are – take the little extra time to pamper yourself! Here are some ways to treat yourself this February 14th!

Soak in a warm Rose and Chamomile Oil bath.

Add a few pumps of the Rose Hand+Body Wash for a bath full of floral bubbles. Incorporate several drops of our Chamomile Treatment Oil for extra soft, touchable skin.

Bonus tip: The Chamomile Treatment Oil is a perfect massage oil.

Scrub your way to kissable lips.

Don’t forget your pucker when exfoliating with our Jojoba Face Scrub. Gently massage the cream based scrub over lips for a few seconds. Rinse with warm water and follow up with our intensely hydrating Lip Moisturizer.

Mood lighting.

After you’ve soaked and buffed, it’s time to set the mood. Light up an Absolute Rose Candle, after trimming the wick of course! The soft middle notes of Moroccan rose are brightened with top notes of ivy and pear.

Sit back and enjoy the rest of your evening. xoxo

New Year, New Face.

2014 has started with a bang and a string of snow and ice storms. No one has been safe from extreme icy temperatures! If anyone is like me, these dry temps are wreaking havoc on your skin. As soon as the needle drops, I pull out the big moisturizing guns. On those days that my skin is extra parched, I intensify my skincare regimen by adding in a few extra steps of TLC. Let me take you through my super hydrating and brightening routine…

  • Day 1 PM: I start by cleansing with the Grapefruit Face Cleanser and following up with the 10% Glycolic Pads. These have been in my regimen for awhile now so I use them as an overnight treatment, but if you are new to the pads, rinse with water and moisturize 20 minutes after applying. The 10% Glycolic Pads deeply exfoliate and reveal a brightened, dewy complexion! I call these guys “new face” because you wake up with new face.
  • Day 2 PM: The Detox Face Mask is a deep cleanse and deep moisturizer that uses stable vitamin C, green tea and soy to instantly brighten. Your skin is left thoroughly cleansed, dewy and soft. Then I follow up with the Replenishing Face Serum. Our hyaluronic acid serum plumps up skin, fills in fine lines and draws moisture in deeper. It’s the perfect base for the last and final step – Replenishing Face Cream. Our Replenishing Face Cream is a rich damage repair focused cream that uses vitamins a, b, c and e to protect, and avocado and watermelon to repair.
