Malin+Goetz is one of those brands that I would love to try but would never bring myself to purchase. For the most part, anyway. Obviously there are some products within the brand that I wouldn’t mind purchasing.
This lip moisturizer is one of those!
what is it:
A heavy-duty lip moisturizer.
In brief: the good and the ugly
The cost. This is one of the cheapest products Malin+Goetz offers. The full-size, 10 ml, is double my sample and costs around $12/$14 CDN plus tax, depending on where you get it.
The fragrance and colour, or lack thereof, is amazing. My lip balm should be colourless and odourless. If I wanted something exciting, I would be wearing lipstick or gloss.
This moisturizer doesn’t play around! Just a little dab will do in the driest and coldest part of winter (I live on the west coast, so in comparison to some parts of North America and Europe/Asia it isn’t that cold or dry). Even less than that for other parts of the year. Amazing for dry, dehydrated lips.
I put them on this week to some really chapped lips overnight. When I woke up, they were completely healed. No joke.
The texture is really thick, then again it’s pretty much all emollients. So there you are. Has the same type of consistency as Vaseline, only more sticky and heavy.
Malin+Goetz products in generally are pretty difficult to purchase in Canada. There are no Malin+Goetz stores in Canada. Luckily there’s a retailer in town that sells them. Otherwise, you are at the mercy of whatever stock the spas and stores that pick up the brand have available.
** If there are any readers who do know where I can get some Malin+Goetz I am all ears!
Would I purchase?
