When someone asks me if I want a sneak peak of the new Malin & Goetz store before it opens, the answer is: Where do I sign up?! I recently had the pleasure of taking a behind-the-scenes tour of their gorgeous new store in the ultra-lux Century City Mall. Founded by Matthew Malin and Andrew Goetz, Malin & Goetz opened their first store in New York in 2004. They now have stores in New York, London and Los Angeles. 

The heart of the brand is simple: easy skincare for everyone with all skin types. In each new store, they strive to maintain the feel of a local apothecary, which at the same time is modern in every way. The Century City store is no exception, and they definitely achieved their goal.

Upon first walking in, you're warmly greeted by the staff and the store's signature eucalyptus scent. The products are easily accessible for those who simply want to pop in during their lunch break to restock their face wash or shampoo. Otherwise, the store lends itself to taking your time and exploring each section—skincare, candles, fragrances, and even the dog section. Yep. They make shampoo for your dogs, which by the way, smells amazing. 

Cannabis and rum are a few of their intoxicating scents that can be found in the fragrance and candle section. All of the Malin & Goetz products have a luxury feel, but are also affordable enough that you don’t have to mortgage your house to buy an eye cream.

Nowadays, life can be busy and complex. With Malin & Goetz, taking care of your skin doesn’t have to be. All of their products and fragrances can be used by anyone and everyone. Who doesn’t want less stuff in their shower? Hotels, spas and other companies are catching on to the ease and appeal of uncomplicated products. Malin & Goetz has partnered with Delta and you can find their products in the Sky Club lounges and amenity bags given to passengers on certain flights. 

The store in Century City officially opened on May 11, 2018.  If you’re in the area, looking to up your skincare routine, buy a unique gift (Cannabis candles!) or simply need a new lip moisturizer (my favorite product of all time), you should definitely check it out. You won’t be disappointed.
