I recently tried Malin + Goetz for the first time in February. I discovered their Lip Moisturizer as one of the gift items that came in the Barneys Love Yourself event a month ago. I’ve read so much about this line but never ventured to try it. After falling in love with the lip balm, I put this brand on my list to explore further in person. I stopped by the Malin + Goetz Boutique on North Larchmont Boulevard in Los Angeles a couple weekends ago. The boutique in Los Angeles is one of four in the US so far. I loved the ultra modern simple design of the boutique. Everything was organized and displayed in a simple yet beautiful way. The staff was incredibly knowledgeable of all the items and patiently answered all of our questions. I learned so much about the products – all of which are designed with natural ingredients for sensitive skins. I left with a small purchase of the Mojito Lip Balm and Candle (review to come soon) and they loaded me and my friend up with generous sample packets. After testing the samples I already have a long list of items I want to purchase on my next visit (in particular the Hand Treatment and Neroli Shampoo).
Here is a closer look at the ultra sleek Malin + Goetz in Los Angeles. Everything is clean, simple and easy to understand since everything is categorized by the color of the packaging labels.
Some of the candles come in two sizes, 9oz. / 260g. for $52 and 2.35oz. / 67g for $14.00:
I’m already planning my next trip in a few weeks. If you’re in the Los Angeles area I highly recommend a visit (plus a new Diptyque store opened just down the street). If you can’t get to one of the boutiques (locations here) you can find the line at a number of retailers and online at MalinandGoetz.com, Bloomingdales, Barneys and Beauty.com.
