Beauty Nostalgia: Reminiscing With…Andrew Goetz
Beauty Nostalgia is a weekly column on Beauty Counter in which we ask influencers, tastemakers, and some of our favorite industry experts to wax poetic on the sticks, salves, and sprays that helped shape who they are today.
The Pro: Andrew Goetz, cofounder of (MALIN+GOETZ).
The Product: “My Proustian beauty moment is always triggered by Noxzema. My mother always used the Cleansing Cream on us if we got too much sun—it really cooled my sunburn. And when I graduated to shaving, I used Noxzema shave cream, as did my father. Just thinking about it, I am transported back to the seventies and my parents’ cluttered bathroom, with piles of Cue New York magazine and The New York Times, not to mention Playboy. Although it was a pretty robust decade for hair, I probably did not do a lot of shaving in the seventies, as I was still in high school. The scent had top notes of refreshing coolness, middle notes of summer, and base notes of cleanliness. But it really does smell like my parents’ bathroom most of all!”
