[unpaid/sample] I know aluminium tubes are so much better environmentally (endlessly recyclable) and many brands are starting to use them as standard, but gosh, they crumple up so much. A new thing looks like an old thing from the first squeeze. I need to have a better mindset over this I know and a good case in point is the newest release from a favourite brand, Malin + Goetz. As you know, I am happy to give away product samples to friends and family and M+G is one of my most requested – most recently, Lucy has fallen for their body lotion and I gave my nephew M+G skin care last year and he loved it. It’s a suit-everyone brand that is tidily edited (doesn’t have a crazy amount of products), visually paired back but perfect in components.
First thing to say is that you don’t get a lot of foam – don’t expect oodles of bubbles – it’s more of a volumising of the cream because there are no sulphates. Next thing to say is that if you have dry skin, this will be an absolute dream for you – jojoba milk, calming probiotics and meadowfoam seed oil (one of my favourite ingredients and I insisted on having it my Cleansing Clouds) give you a creamy, balmy cleanse that’s efficient, pleasant and leaves no sign of tautness because it’s laced with skin loving fatty acids.
This is a high recommend if you need to switch to more emollient cleansers during winter or if you know the cold will snap the moisture out of your skin – no matter what type you are, but particularly if you are drier and prefer a wash-off. It’s pH balanced and I forgave the crumply tube the moment I tried it – in fact, I see it now as a perfectly imperfect thing and have only the occasional urge to smooth it out :-), You can find Malin + Goetz Foaming Cream Cleanser HERE for £28.
