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.

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.

The Benefits of Sage.

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

10.25.2013 | Posted by MALIN+GOETZ in Advice, Lifestyle, Products | No comments

By: Erica Bowman, National Training Manager

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!

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.
