Malin + Goetz’s Skincare Sidekick-------
Honest and hardworking are two words that describe both Malin + Goetz’s streamlined skincare assortment and the brand’s founders themselves. Since the inception of their apothecary in 2004, Matthew Malin and Andrew Goetz have been busy producing natural beauty products that, refreshingly, say exactly what they do. The hit Vitamin E Face Moisturizer is a perfect example; the fact that it’s a “residue-free moisturizer that scientifically synthesizes natural antioxidants, vitamins E and B5, and soothing chamomile with absorbent fatty acids to gently and effectively hydrate and ph balance all skin types” is literally printed on the front of the bottle. It also happens to be the inspiration behind the duo’s latest endeavor, a much-anticipated companion treatment product. Aptly named the Replenishing Face Cream, the rich salve dials up the hydration quotient of the Vitamin E moisturizer with added botanicals like avocado and jojoba to stimulate cellular renewal and reinforce the skin’s protective barrier. A combo of chamomile and panthenol (a provitamin) provides a soothing finish, making this the ideal night cream to its lighter predecessor and a restorative face mask for anyone who’s enjoyed a bit too much fun in the sun this summer.
