Malin + Goetz Lip Moisturizer

I hope everyone had a lovely time during the holidays, luckily I still have a few more days off (of course, the weather's been a bit rubish these days and it'll probably get sunny and warm again once I get back to work, sigh).


Now back to today's topic: I've been wearing a lot of lipsticks lately (not all at the same time of course) which I find funny because years ago I was all for lipglosses but now I definitely prefer lipstick over its shinier sister. Consequently, I also became a lot pickier about lip balms because I think that with lipsticks the dry and chapped lips are even more obvious. At the time of writing this post I almost finished my tube of the Malin + Goetz lip moisturizer so I can now give a proper review.

I bought the Malin + Goetz lip moisturiser back in January from Zuneta and I haven't used any other lip balm except the Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm a couple of nights (a review will follow after I use this one long enoguh) so I guess I could say that this balm lasted me four months of everyday use.

The lip balm comes in a white tube and contatins 10g of products. The balm is actually a transparent gel and has no scent to it. It feels very moisturizing and fortunately doesn't leave an oily film on the lips - I find that some lip balms are too greasy for me and actually make me breakout around my lips. It works well under lipsticks and even when I use it at night I wake up with very smooth lips and what I love about it the most is the fact that I don't need to reapply it as often during the day as I did with some of the other lip balms by the brands Blistex, Eucerin and Korres.

Ingredients from Malin+Goetz website (kudos to M+G for putting the ingredients of all of their products online).

Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Butylene/Ethylene/Styrene Copolymer, Ethylene/Propylene/Styrene Copolymer, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Tricaprylin, Phenoxyethanol, Bisabolol. 

Now there is one teeny tiny issue that I have with this product - the applicator:

Actually, It's not an applicator because it is way too scratchy so I just squeeze the products out and apply it with my finger. A smooth slanted tip would have worked much better.

Other than the packaging I have no complaints and I'm actually planning on buying another tube and maybe, just maybe I'll go all crazy and get the Mojito scented one, yum!

The Malin + Goetz lip moisturizer is available at Zuneta and SpaceNK for 10 GBP.

  1. I have the same kind of problem with my Tebe lip balm. How am I supposed to apply it when it comes out of a little hole on a falt round surface that's as you put it - scratchy?!
    They should give it some more packaging thought.

  2. Hi Ines: I agree, it is annoying when a product is actually great but the packaging is not convenient at all. Btw, how do you like the Tebe lip balm? x Klara

  3. Honestly, it's perfectly fine. But it has some big shoes to fill. I used the Kanebo's (don't know the exact name) but plumping balm and that was incredible (and had a pump!). :) I got it from Strawberry for an incredibly low price and loved it. Should try and find another bargain of it...

  4. Oh dear, maybe you should try searching ebay for it? Although the prices might not be as low there. x

  5. I realise after all these times, I'm still going through this small 10g tube which at first I thought was too small but now realise you don't need much and last you quite a while and actually works in keeping your lips moisturised! It's entering Winter here in Australia and my lips are saved because of this little white tube =)
