MALIN+GOETZ NEW Body Wash: Sage!   The same beloved natural scent found in our Sage Styling Cream, sage has astringent properties and antioxidants that protect skin from damage. Other benefits: increases blood circulation, relieves symptoms of eczema and psoriasis, stimulates cell renewal, encourages hair growth and minimizes hair loss.  Phew!  Next time you lather up or style your coif, remember that it’s not just about the delicious smell, but also your health.

Did you know?  We formulate for sensitive skin.  Each treatment is free of parabens, harsh detergents, dyes and synthetic fragrances. Our treatments are naturally-scented and while they smell beautiful our goal is therapeutic.  Like chemists from years ago, we use botanicals that serve a purpose.  I’m constantly impressed by their power and different uses.

Sage Body Wash Product Tips:  In those drier winter months, add a couple capfuls of Sage Body Wash to a warm bath to soothe dry, itchy skin and breathe in the invigorating herbal scent to help clear sinuses and relax your mind!

M+G: Date Night Ready

Fall is my favorite dating season because it’s impossible not to look cute in a leather jacket. I know everyone says summer is when your love life picks up, but false, it’s Fall. Here are my favorite tips to for getting date night ready.

  • A night or two before the big event, indulge in the MALIN+GOETZ 10% Glycolic Pads. There’s a reason we call this an “overnight resurfacing treatment”, you will wake up with a radiant, glowing complexion and your moisturizers will perform better than ever.
  • The day of the date is when you should call on your trusty Detox Face Mask. And it’s not just for your face! The Detox Mask is a deep cleanse + deep moisturizer and instantly brightens with green tea and soy.
  • We’re almost to the finish line now! Massage a pea-sized amount of Vitamin E Face Moisturizer for a boost of lightweight hydration that also preps the skin for makeup application.
  • Lastly, smooth a little M+G Lip Moisturizer as the perfect lipstick base that prevents feathering, or for a great pop of shine on your pucker.

BONUS: Don’t forget to drop your Vitamin B5 Hand treatment in your purse in case your date and you decide to stroll hand in hand down the street.
Go get em’ daters!

I was lucky enough to spend 3 training-filled days visiting accounts and staff in Chicago! The windy city turned out to be the rainy city, but the friendly faces made up for my soggy state. I loved training our accounts. From Haberdash, a mens clothing store + apothecary to Smith & Davis, a beautiful salon in Lincoln Park, I repeatedly found myself in niche spots that inspired me to update everything from my hairstyle or my closet. Visiting our out of town accounts in person, takes me back to our brand. We carefully select where MALIN+GOETZ is retailed because we tell a clear, concise story and we want that story present in every location we are found. This trip reminded me how defined the MALIN+GOETZ brand is and why I’m so passionate about my job. Our retailers are each telling their own story and MALIN+GOETZ is lucky enough to be a chapter in each of their worlds. My time in Chicago quickly came to an end, but I came back to New York with fresh eyes and an even greater love for what I do!

Step into Fall!

It’s time once again to bid adieu to summer. And while I won’t miss the sticky, humid days, where the thought of wearing my hair down and an ounce of makeup makes me want to crawl back in bed, I will miss dining al fresco and the sun setting at 9pm. Autumn is my favorite season – the bite in the air puts a pep in my step and there’s nothing I love more than a slouchy cardigan. The only complaint I have about the cooler weather is, my head-to-toe dry skin. So, not only does Fall require me to switch out my wardrobe, I also exchange my lightweight lotions for heavier creams and moisturizers to prepare my hide for the upcoming months. My favorite products to get me through the colder months are – Jojoba Face Scrub, Chamomile Treatment Oil, Replenishing Face Cream, Peppermint Body Scrub and Vitamin B5 Body Moisturizer. True story – I’ve been stopped on the street before to ask me what I use to get a glowing complexion… Obviously, MALIN+GOETZ!

Product Tips:

  • The Jojoba Face Scrub serves as a gentle every day cream cleanser. It puts hydration back in your skin.
  • I love warming one pump of the Chamomile Treatment Oil in my hands and pressing into my skin like a serum. The oil restores balance and gives my skin a great glow.
  • During winter months, the Replenishing Face Cream becomes my daily moisturizer. It’s the only thing that leaves my skin feeling hydrated and supple.
  • Some people are scared to exfoliate dry skin because they think it dries it out even more. This could not be farther from the truth! Gently exfoliating with the Peppermint Body Scrub removes the dry, dead skin and allows moisturizers to penetrate even deeper. You’re doing your scales well by scrubbing!
  • Right before I hop into my warm, cozy bed, I slather Vitamin B5 Body Moisturizer all over – don’t forget your feet! Honey and shea butter soothe my parched skin and vitamin b5 deeply hydrates and plumps collagen.

    An Evening With Birchbox.

    08.22.2013 | Posted by MALIN+GOETZ in Lifestyle, Products | No comments

    By Erica, National Training Manager

    I’ve recently had the pleasure of training the lovely staff at Birchbox. If you guys are anything like me, then you are OBSESSED with Birchbox! I wait patiently each month for my little box to arrive with all its fun treats inside. MALIN+GOETZ has teamed up with them and some of you lucky subscribers will be receiving samples from us. When I went to train their team on all things M+G, I was blown away when I walked into their beautiful news-style office. Everyone there is so happy, super warm, and it’s apparent that they truly LOVE their jobs. I jumped right into training their customer service team and instantly felt at ease and welcomed in front of the large group. They asked very thoughtful questions and were already in love with M+G, which makes my job that much more fun. Afterwards, we shared some laughs and macaroons, celebrating our collaboration.

    As I turned to grab my things and leave, someone had left me a Birchbox as a gift. I am not ashamed to admit that I tore into it as soon as the elevator doors closed. The whole evening was a reminder of why I love what I do. Thank you Birchbox! I can’t wait for my next box to arrive!
