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.

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.

Great kit!
Purchased

I have used and loved a Malin+Goetz face mask and I really wanted to try the face wash and moisturizer. I have had bad luck at buying face products without sampling first though so when I saw this kit, it was perfect.

I likely won't buy the full-size shampoo, conditioner or body wash because I do have products I like more, I am thrilled with the face moisturizer and face wash. I have oily skin and I feel like both of these have really helped to even things out.

If you're buying this as a travel kit, everything has a really good amount of product- except the shampoo and especially the conditioner. Great products, I really liked them but it's definitely not enough for longer than a couple days trip.

makes any travel better
Purchased

I was sceptical about this kit, but now refill it every couple of months because every single product is great. I was not sold on the fragrance of some items at first- but now I am a fan of all of them, some smell a little more "clinical" but it disappears quickly.

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.

Great Product!
Purchased

I just ordered the full sample pack because I travel a lot & don't like to take large size anything w/me. So, this w/work for me. I can moisturize my face & the grapefruit cleaner is awesome as well. Theres a shampoo & conditioner which use more than the shampoo. I really luv the moisturizer b/c I often suffer dry skin especially when standing in direct Sun too long. I just ordered this pack to pamper my skin. I recommend this product.

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.

great gift
Purchased

I got this for my friend since she's travelling to Europe. She absolutely loves it and all the bottles are perfect for carry on. Now she has toiletries for her carry on bag that will be easy to find and no worries about lost luggage or exploded bottles!

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.

Great variety

Loved this sampler kit! Perfect for traveling and scents are all amazing; this says a lot since I'm typically picky about scents.
