Let Max And Me Awaken The Beauty Of Your Skin And Your Soul

Max and Me is an organic eco-luxury skincare line born out of the devoted love story between founders Tanja and Max, who met through mutual friends and knew immediately that they were meant to create something together to inspire the world to build a life of beauty, radiance and grace. Their holistic approach to skincare is evident in every detail of their products, and their vision is to guide people to connect with the higher energies and healing powers of the universe to protect their inner light, which in turn allows their innermost beauty to radiate outwards. 


It was Jeannie Jarnot who first introduced me to Tanja and Max at a Beauty Heroes party in August, and we immediately clicked and entered into a spirited conversation about our world travels and beauty perceptions. Our interactions continued over the next two days at the Indie Beauty Expoand they radiated such love and authenticity and left an indelible impression upon me because it is clear they truly practice what they preach. If you have had the fortune of connecting with them in person, you would know what I mean!

The magic of Max and Me lies in their high-vibrational formulas that work to nourish both your skin and the loving, caring energy of your heart. They partner with farmers, co-ops and distillers who possess an intuitive understanding of plants and carefully harvest wild plants or practice organic farming. Every product is hand-blended in small batches in their manufactory in Vienna with the utmost care and reverence.
From the harvesting of the ingredients to the eventual product that reaches the hands of the consumer, they are BDIH-certified and committed to sustainable production and recyclable packaging. The elfin illustrations on all their creations symbolizes a connection to the realm of plants, its elementals and their guardians, with the enchanting creatures transporting us to an unseen world filled with tenderness and delight and where miracles abound.
It was love at first sight for me, and I am honored to be share my thoughts and experience of two exquisite products from their line.
Sweet Serenity Mask & Wash ($95.00 for 100 ml)
The Sweet Serenity Mask & Wash is the latest offering in their product lineup, described as a lush, soothing treat that brings delightful relief to a multitude of troublesome skin conditions. The powerhouse formula is bursting with antioxidants, skin soothers and inflammation tamers, marrying raw Manuka honey with white Kaolin clay, shea butter, mangosteen powder, Balinese cacao powder, and coconut oil infused with a harmonious blend of botanical extracts and essential oils.
As the name suggests you can use this in two ways after mixing it with water in the palm of your hand or a small bowl until it becomes a lighter-hued paste: by leaving it on your face and neck as a mask for at least 30 minutes, or by circling the paste on your face as a gentle cleanser. This skin treat will provide a sense of calm and nourishment (much-needed during the hectic holiday season!) while delivering optimal hydration and evening out your skin tone to give you a fresh, radiant glow. Used consistently over time, it will brighten your complexion and fade scars and wrinkles, and you only have to look at the founders' incredible complexions for living proof.
Ingredients: White Kaolin Clay, Leptospermum Scoparium Mel (Raw Manuka Honey), Butyrospermum Parkii Butter1, Garcinia Mangostana Pericarp Powder1, Calophyllum Inophyllum Seed Oil1, Cranberry Seed Oil1, Theobroma Cacao Seed Powder1, Cocos Nucifera Oil1, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil1, Tocopherol, Prinsepia Utilis Seed Oil1, Glycine Soja Oil, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil1, Punica Granatum Seed Oil1, Nigella Sativa Seed Oil1, Gardenia Tahitensis Flower Extract, Helichrysum Angustifolium Flower Oil1, Santalum Album Oil2, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil1, Leptospermum Scoparium Oil3, Citrus Aurantium Flower Extract1, Pelargonium Graveolens Oil1, Pogostemon Cablin Leaf Oil1, Cananga Odorata Flower Oil1, Lavandula Angustifolia Herb Oil2, Cymbopogon Martinii Herb Oil1, Linalool, Geraniol, Citronellol, Limonene, Alcohol, Farnesol, Benzyl Benzoate, Propolis Cera, Benzyl Salicylate, Citral, Eugenol

Enchanted Face Oil ($116.00 for 30 ml)
I had received a sample of the Enchanted Face Oil at IBE and my skin drank the potion right up, and I knew I had to get my hands on a full-size bottle. The rich, indulgent blend of the finest cold-pressed carrier oils like argan, marula, rose hip and evening primrose delivers nourishment and regeneration, and this formula is suitable for all skin types in need of dedicated pampering and loving care. 
A tip from the founders: warm a few drops in the palms of your hands and inhale deeply, and then put the palms of your hands on your cheeks and let the wonderful heartwarming energy of Enchanted flow onto your face.  When used as a night treatment it will pamper, sooth and balance your skin so you wake up to a beautiful complexion, and during the day it also works as a primer and real-life filter for my bare face. 
I am also obsessed with its other-worldly scent, an energetic potpurri of jasmine, ylang-ylang, rose, champaca, lavender, sandalwood and frangipani that will resonate with the heart chakra and heighten your mood, and I am hoping someday Max and Me will make a perfume of this!
Ingredients: Argania spinosa Kernel Oil1, Rosa moschata Seed Oil1, Sclerocarya birrea Kernel Oil2, Oenothera biennis Oil1, Macadamia ternifolia Seed Oil1, Punica granatum Seed Oil1, Rosa damascena Flower Oil1, Jasminum sambac Flower Extract1, Lavendula angustifolia Herb Oil2, Santalum album Oil3, Michelia champaca Extract, Cananga odorata Flower Oil1, Plumeria alba Flower Extract, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl Benzoate, Benzyl Salicylate, Citral, Citronellol, Eugenol, Farnesol, Geraniol, Isoeugenol, Limonene, Linalool, Tocopherol

Max and Me is truly an experience for the body, mind and soul, and it's also convinced me that a trip to Vienna has to happen in the near future, so don't be surprised if I book us tickets to visit soon!
Yay- you can shop Max and Me from both Beauty Heroes (where members get 15% off) and Beauty Habit in the U.S.!
