Our Top 5 MALIN + GOETZ Favorites

Nowadays, the “more is more” approach to skin care reigns supreme, and our bursting-at-the-seams bathroom cabinets can certainly attest to that fact. So, when we discovered the sleek, minimalist world of MALIN + GOETZ, it felt like a breath of fresh air. Inspired by their own overcrowded New York City bathroom, Matthew Malin and Andrew Goetz started the brand with one goal in mind: to make skincare that was simple, shareable, and suitable for sensitive skin.

Minimal in appearance but not in power, MALIN + GOETZ’s two-step Balancing Systems define simplicity. Each category (face, hair, and body) has only two “essentials”—a product to cleanse, and a product to moisturize. They also offer a carefully edited collection of treatments, allowing for customizable solutions to individual concerns. What’s more, the brand combines high-performance technologies with natural botanicals, ensuring each treatment is as gentle as it is effective—for all skin types, for both men and women.

Clearly, there’s a lot to love about this award-winning, family-owned apothecary brand. Read on to discover our top five MALIN + GOETZ favorites:

Eucalyptus Deodorant

If you have super sensitive skin, using deodorant can feel like you're trading one problem for another. Sure, you eliminate odor, but are you causing irritation in the process? Both alcohol and aluminum free, this long-lasting formula relies on gentle eucalyptus extract and citronellyl to zap odors and moisturize skin for up to 24 hours.

Grapefruit Face Cleanser

Can one cleanser suit all skin types? We were skeptical at first, but M+G’s grapefruit cleanser really does work for everyone, even the most opposite complexions! It does wonders for sensitive, dry skin, but is also great for oily or combination types.The amino-acid based formula dissolves dirt, oil, and makeup, clears acne, and balances skin’s pH, leaving your skin soft, not tight and dry. It also rinses away completely, eliminating the need for a toner.

Detox Face Mask

We usually associate the word “clarifying” with harsh, drying clays and chemicals, but M+G’s Detox Face Mask is anything but. The light, foaming gel harnesses innovative oxygenating ingredients to deep clean your pores without parching your skin.The potent, high-performing formula only takes five minutes, too, rinsing away to reveal a clear, hydrated complexion.

Peppermint Shampoo

This daily clarifying shampoo stimulates and rejuvenates the scalp with peppermint while gently removing product build up from hair and the scalp for ultra-clean, shiny tresses. This invigorating shampoo is formulated to be safe color-treated hair so you can achieve clean, bouncy locks with maximum shine. Even better? It’s sulfate free!

Vitamin E Face Moisturizer

Even with its lightweight, barely-there texture, this moisturizer has some serious hydrating power. Formulated with fatty acid technology, it delivers just the right amount of moisture, effectively hydrating and balancing skin’s pH without leaving behind greasy residue. What’s more, Vitamin E, calming chamomile, and natural antioxidants work to soothe sensitive, irritated skin. And because the fast-absorbing formula fills in fine lines, it makes an amazing makeup primer, too!
