My Max and Me review is finally complete. I have really taken my time to get to know each product throughout the whole process. I didn't want to rush my skin or my thoughts. This line is very special and I knew I needed time to experience it.
If you aren't familiar with Max and Me- let me introduce you. This exquisite line is from the beautiful country of Austria. This line represents a love story between the two founders. Max and Tanja. Max and Tanja are 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.
I had sampled the Circle of Protection Oil before and fell in love with it. It still is my favorite body oil- there's nothing like it. From the smell to the hydration and feel. It's a true luxury. When I received my skincare treats from Max and Me I was beyond excited!
So without further adieu let me introduce you to Max and Me…
Let's start with their oil cleaner- it's such an amazing product in itself. The smell alone is intoxicating! I apply 3-4 pumps to my hands and rub in circular motions on dry skin to remove all the build up and makeup from the day. It even gets off eye makeup. After removing the day's grime I take a warm washcloth and use it to remove all the oil. My skin feels clean, and balanced afterwards. I've never looked forward to cleansing my skin as much as I have when I've been using this cleansing oil. The whole experience from the scent, to the feeling of the oil- it's all so luxurious. My self care after a long day. This cleanser is perfect for all skin types. There are mixtures of altas cedar, lavender and mountain juniper. Grab your Purity and Grace Oil Cleanser here!
Ohh, this oil is divine! It's won best in show from Indie Beauty Expo in 2016 and for good reason. The smell again is wonderful. From jasmine, lavender, sandalwood and rose- it envelops you in this tantalizing aroma. This oil is especially great for sensitive, irritated or mature skin. It helps to calm and soothe with oils of argan, marula, macademianut, rosehip, pomegranate, and evening primrose. I apply it after my hydrosol. Using circular motions to blend it in, while inhaling the scent. It calms me and helps me relax. When I wake up in the morning my skin feels balanced, hydrated and less congested. This oil is a winner! Get your Enchanted Oil here!
I loved this facial oil as well. It is different than the Enchanted oil but equally special. I use the Enchanted oil before going to bed, while the I Am The Light I like to use in the morning. It helps to revive tired, dull skin. Bringing back your inner glow! This is why I precisely love using it in the morning. It gives my face a lit from within glow before I even apply my makeup. My makeup looks better and goes on so smooth. There are so many all star ingredients in this bottle. From argan, rosehip, pomegranate, marula and so many more. Again, the smell just captures you- the perfect way to wake up tired skin. Get your I Am The Light Oil here!
This little jar is full of goodness. This is such a multitasking product. It not only helps soothe skin, and hydrate but also helps to boost collagen for mature skin. I love applying it at night on top of the Enchanted for additional moisture and skin love. In the morning it works great as a moisturizer before makeup. I allow 30 minutes for it to set on my skin before applying makeup. It doesn't feel overly oily like some balms- my skin literally drinks it up and is left feeling dewy to the touch. This balm is especially great for those who suffer from acne or irritated skin. Not only would it soothe your skin but help bring balance. The essential oil blend in this balm are made to soothe and heal the skin. Grab your Sweet Serenity/Beauty Balm here!
This balm is another multitasking product. Really taking healing and soothing the skin to the next level. It releases heat in the skin, calms redness, and relieves stressed skin. This is the perfect antidote for skin that is stretched and irritated. Also, great for burns or bites. It helps to transform your skin back to it's glory days. I applied this at night by itself and loved how my skin felt so transformed in the morning. Not only did my skin feel so hydrated but my redness was minimized. I loved applying this to my lips too- ultra moisture! Great on days when I go makeup free. My skin feels like it's getting repaired the whole day with all of it's goodness. Grab your Sweet Serenity Rescue here!
This mask and wash is by far one of my very favorite masks! It is just delectable. The smell literally transforms me to a calming and soothing place with cacao, honey and mangosteen. I can't get enough. As I write this my jar is completely gone…I know sad. I literally used every last drop. The beauty of this product is it can be used in many ways. One way is as a cleanser. I use it to rub away all the day's grime and wipe off with a warm washcloth. My skin feels renewed and refreshed. I also love using it as a mask. First, I would use the Purity and Grace oil cleanser first to remove all the dirt from the day and then follow with the Sweet Serenity Mask. I would then go about my nighttime routine and then at the end wash it off with a warm washcloth. My skin loved every drop. This little ritual of cleaning and masking has given my skin some serious restoration and glow. I would also use this as an exfoliant in the morning and leave it on after rubbing on my face while I brushed my teeth. It worked perfectly as a mask/cleanser/exfoliant combo. After the mask my skin is hydrated, balanced and glows. I can't say enough about this product! Get your Sweet Serenity Mask & Wash here!
This little number is so hydrating and smells divine too. Crystal Clear helps troubled, irritated skin, helping to calm and soothe it. The oil clears and detoxifies the skin. It doesn't feel as heavy as the Circle of Protection body oil. It's a nice light feeling. My skin still felt hydrated the whole day. I loved applying this all over my body after showering for the ultimate hydration experience. Snag your Crystal Clear Beauty Body Oil here!
Fell for this oil too! It leaves you with the softest, dewiest skin. I would also apply this after showering and my skin just drank up every drop. The smell transports you to happy times and melts away stressors. I loved how dewy my skin felt even at the end of the day. It even has toning effects on the skin too. Scents of ylang ylang, sandalwood, rose, frankincense and patchouli capture your mind. This is such a luxe body oil! Get your body oil here!
