It’s the start of a new month and with it brings another Beauty Heroes Discovery! This month it’s all about the luxurious Austrian skincare line Max and Me. I had never tried Max and Me until my Beauty Heroes box this month. I was so elated to see the brand in the box and learn all about what makes them so special. It truly is a unique brand, from their name, to the actual product. Before I dive into this month’s Beauty Hero, if you’re not familiar with Beauty Heroes keep reading below for all the details and why this beauty box delivers month after month.
Beauty Heroes was founded by Jeannie Jarnot. A longtime spa director herself and healthy beauty expert. I had the pleasure of meeting Jeannie at IBE, and she is truly one of the sweetest people. Beauty Heroes is a monthly beauty service that selects only the best clean beauty brands. Each month you can find one to two full size truly heroic products in each box. The products typically range from skincare to haircare products. However, every 3 months Beauty Heroes offers a makeup box as well that’s optional for members or non-members. I absolutely love their “Use Less, Love More” philosophy. By only getting one or two products, you allow yourself to truly experience them. Of course you can trust their picks, as they are strict on their integrity standards. What’s not to love about this whole concept? As a Beauty Heroes Ambassador, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be part of such a movement.
Ok, now I can gush about this month’s Beauty Hero product!
First, I must explain a little more about Max and Me. Max and Me is a husband and wife team, Max and Tanja Gruber. The name, Max and Me, really is a representation of their love for each other. Their hope is that you feel the product in your whole being and feel the vibrations of it as you use it. It truly is an experience! You feel their sweet and tender love story coming through the product, and you can’t help but be grateful for your own loves that surround you.
Their passion is so evident in their products and ingredients as well. With organic and wildcrafted ingredients that perform to the highest standards. In the end, they even go beyond organic! Here is an exert from their website-
Max and Tanja lovingly source ingredients only from farmers, cooperatives and distillers who carefully harvest wild plants, or practice organic farming, in harmony with nature its seasons and its rhythm. We need them to consider plants as beings of light that are respected and revered.
The line is blended by hand in small artisan batches, making sure no detail is spared. After blending by hand, they are then bottled in violet/amber glasses to preserve and protect it. I loved reading that their whole process of creating and manufacturing Max and Me takes place in the midst of a flower garden-how appropriate. The care and attention to detail of this line is truly special.
The heroic product among the Max and Me line is the Circle of Protection. It’s a body oil, but it’s hard to even call it “just” a body oil. It really is something so much more. The ingredients include some of the best organic oils. From argan, rosehip, marula and magnolia, just to name a few. The oil is thicker in consistency but not greasy feeling at all. It goes on smooth and doesn’t leave a weird residue. Your skin feels perfectly hydrated and not wet feeling. I have to tell you about the smell-so wonderful! With notes of jasmine, geranium, and rose that literally awaken your senses and uplift you. It isn’t a strong smell at all. I can lightly smell it throughout the day, which I love. I apply mine after the shower once I’ve towel dried off. My pores in my skin are open from the warm shower and they drink in this beautiful oil. Suffice to say I can’t get enough!
The sidekicks this month are a travel size Circle of Protection and a sample of Max and Me’s award winning Enchanted Face oil. The travel size can be given to someone special whom you want to experience the amazing oil or you can savor it for yourself and use it for travel. I’m going to gift mine to my mom with her Mother’s Day gift. She is the epitome of love and grace and I couldn’t think of a better oil for her to enjoy. The Enchanted Face Oil is another all star product among the Max and Me line. It got me addicted just long enough to realize how amazing it is and how much more I wanted of it! The oil smells so wonderful! I smell notes of rose, sandalwood, jasmine and lavender. The organic oils in the facial oil are some of the best. Including some of my favorite facial oils of argan, marula, pomegranate, primrose and macadamia oil. These oils work together to regenerate, protect and soothe the skin. It feels so rich going on and leaves your skin feeling balanced and moisturized. A rare and exquisite facial oil.
This month it’s all about the Circle of Protection and Beauty Heroes and Max and Me have created a unique opportunity for a global meditation. For more information and how to be a part, read more here.
