bottles leak
Purchased

bought this for a trip to Denver and then reused them for a trip to Fort Lauderdale this weekend. on both ways either the face wash, shampoo or body wash leaked all over my travel bag. products are great when I used them but the fact that I got to use about a third of what I purchased due to the bottles leaking is inexcusable.

if it's not free don't get it
Purchased

These came half filled! Talk about stingy. This is such a disappointment and waste of money. I love this brand and wanted to have a travel set.

Save your money.
Purchased

I got a sample of their conditioner awhile back and it smelled really good (although it leaked all over the inside of my box, yuck). I decided to give this sample set a try since the sample did smell good and I love bergamot, one of the other scents in the set.

First off, these bottles are not full. All of them are about halfway full, so you're getting about half an ounce of each one. For the price point this does not seem fair.

Also (and this may be related to the half full thing) one of the bottles leaked. Again. Obviously the desgin of the bottles is not good or the caps are loosely screwed on. Either way, everything is goopy and sticky inside the bag and the spilled whatever made the blue ink of the insert dissolve so that the bottles are not only sticky but they will turn your fingertips blue if you try to touch them.

I wanted to give some of these away as a part of gift bags, but they are halfway full and the blue ink is not fully coming off. These brand-new samples look straight-up used. SO disappointed!

Some good and some bad
Purchased

The scents for all the samples are quite unique, and most leaned toward the citrus side. The shampoo and conditioner work fine, could have used more in the bottle. The body wash felt decent, and didn't dry out my skin. Wasn't fond of the scent. Facial wash seemed to do the job, but had the worst scent out of the entire sample pack. Couldn't rinse it off fast enough. The body lotion was excellent and did a great job. It was easily absorbed and scent was light. Didn't use facial lotion.

Malin and Goetz
Purchased

Everything smelled wonderful..however I was only able to experience a few things as everything leaked in the package and was mixed together which was a huge dissappointment.
The lotion was nice, I have very dry skin so I didn't really notice any luxe feel. Bottle size would have been nice for travel or gym, but again with all the leaking that took place it was easier to throw out then try and save.

Disapointing
Purchased

As others have mentioned the bottles are not full - mine were at best halfway full which amounted to one shampoo/conditioner use only. I had previously used their lip balm and was really impressed so I was excited to try these other items out but for $30 it wasn't worth it and sad to say I was not blown away by the quality.

Nice products, a little too pricey for the value
Purchased

I've gotten some of these before in samples I think, and for how much I travel, thought it'd be convenient to have these around. I was right - the convenience is awesome, but had some challenges...

1) Flew 3 times with them, and twice had some issues with the bottles leaking due to pressurization.
2) The lotions sometimes really don't want to come out of the bottle

Most of the scents are great, although I still can't decide how I feel about the cilantro.

Doubt I'll order the travel pack again - I may just opt for something I can keep around the house instead.

Good way to try the brand, but not 100% in love
Purchased

This kit gave me a solid intro to Malin + Goetz. I had always wanted to try the brand, since I'm such a fan of natural products and I have insanely sensitive skin. The kit gives you enough of each sample to really try everything out, and I will definitely take some of these bottles with me when I travel. I was surprised at how much I loved the bergamot body wash, peppermint shampoo, and cilantro conditioner - those were all so refreshing, and the hair products were great for my oily, fine hair. HOWEVER, I have rosacea and combo/dry skin, and the face wash was incredibly drying/made my redness even worse. The moisturizer soaked into my skin well but was not moisturizing enough to make up for how much the cleanser stripped away. I was really hoping to love those two products, I just didn't. Either way, I definitely recommend buying this kit to try before buying any of the brand's full-size products, it really helped me make an informed decision.

simple and basic
Purchased

I think the best products in the kit are the vitamin e moisturizer and the B5 lotion. They soak in well and do not leave a greasy residue.Those two are worth the money. The other items were good but so basic and simple that I feel like you could easily find a similar product for less money. The deodorant however (not in the kit) is the best thing since sliced bread and would highly recommend it!

Good product, leaky bottles
Purchased

I like these products for travel purposes but the bottles are leaky. It is a pain to have to put them in separate plastic bags so they don't leak all over the rest.
