Malin + Goetz Vitamin E Shaving Cream Texture

Overall Rating:
Price: $$$ ($20-$30) 4 oz. tube – Available at Malin+Goetz, Grooming Lounge, and Barneys New York.
Scent: Menthol.
I liked: how cooling and invigorating it felt – no other shave cream comes close in this department.  It rinsed easily off the blade and did not dry out my skin.
I didn’t like: Nothing.  However, the major cooling sensation and price tag may take some getting used to.

It felt as if my face was in the Arctic when I used the Malin + Goetz Vitamin E Shaving Cream.  I have never experienced a more cooling shave cream.  The menthol really packs a powerful punch – ideal for those mornings when you need a little help waking up.  Because this shave cream doesn’t really lather up it didn’t over-dry my skin – I’m sure the extra boost of vitamin e doesn’t hurt.  Unlike some thick creams out there, this one didn’t clog up my razor cartridge – which I greatly appreciate since they cost a fortune to replace.  Four ounces of this frigid goodness will cost you $22 – worth trying if you’re man enough to face its chill.

Malin+Goetz Grapefruit Face Cleanser

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$$ ($30) – Available at Malin+Goetz, Bloomingdale’s, and Bigelow Chemists.
Scent: Light grapefruit.
I liked: how gentle this cleanser was on my face.  It got rid of the dirt without over-drying my skin.  The subtle smell of grapefruit was a nice, refreshing touch.
I didn’t like: nothing.  However, guys may be hesitant to spend $30 on a face cleanser.

Less is more when it comes to Malin+Goetz’s Grapefruit Face Cleanser.  This face wash effectively removes dirt without stripping the skin of vital oils.  It is clear and colorless, with a slight grapefruit scent.   The biggest thing I notice when using this cleanser is the lack of lather – which means it is gentle and doesn’t over-dry the skin.  I used this face wash day and night with excellent  results – no breakouts or signs of irritation.  As usual, I immediately moisturized after every cleansing.  The product’s thick texture allows you to use a little each time – which, even at $30, makes it a good value.
