A few weeks ago I found this little surprise in my mail box: a press kit from Max & Me, an Austrian natural cosmetics line that consists of seven body oil blends:

There are a lot of natural cosmetics brands out there and body oil is nothing new, but it’s the styling and the philosophy of Max & Me that sets the brand apart. And that’s why I think it deserves this beauty spotlight. Now let’s have a closer look at the press kit:

It all looks very fairy-tale like, doesn’t it? Max & Me has created a magical fantasy world for its body oil blends. I like a bit of fantasy and magic, so I think the styling of the press kit is really lovely. It’s definitely different.

The body oil blend that I received is called Higher Energy. It’s an organic body oil blend with genuine white fir, jasmine, sandalwood, nard, lotus, rose damascena, myrrh and frankincense that – quoting Max & Me here – ‘invites you to dance, invigorates your skin, complexion and entire being, and like a ray of light fills you with a new joy of life.’ And that was only the first part of the description. Okay. Definitely an original product description. I think that what they’re saying is that the Higher Energy body oil blend is a nourishing body oil with essential oils that has a refreshing and invigorating effect on the skin and the senses ;-)

So yeah, Max & Me is clearly not your everyday natural cosmetics brand. The brand looks beyond just beauty and skin care, and also focuses on the senses, on the mind and on the spiritual. I mean, just have a look at the directions on how to use the body oil blends:

Okey dokey then! For me this is a little bit too spiritual. Mantras, chakras, auras,… It’s all a bit too floaty for me. But like I said, I do like the fairy-tale theme of the Max & Me body oil blends a lot. And I like the Higher Energy body oil blend a lot as well. The smell is very enchanting (no pun intended), the texture is quite thick for an oil which makes applying it very easy and drip-free, and the hydration and nourishment that it provides is more than okay. And there’s more, because all Max & Me body oil blends are free from parabens, mineral oils, conservatives, silicones, synthetic colors and aromas, glycol and propylene. And the brand is also one hundred percent vegan and animal friendly. So you can enjoy the Max & Me body oil blends without feeling guilty, yay!

In Switzerland Max & Me is available in the Biomazing web shop. For a 100 ml bottle of body oil you pay 75 CHF.

What is your first impression of Max & Me? Do you like the brand’s fairy tale-like theme as much as I do?

  1. It’s a bit too spiritual for me too. Am I joining a cult or am I putting some oil on??:D And it really irks me that they didn’t capitalize Max and Me (or at least Max) in the application text, but it’s all natural and paraben free so I can’t hate on the brand for too long (or at all!). Again, great review, babe!!!

  2. Ik kende het niet maar zite er idd sprookjesachtig uit! :D Ik heb ook helemaal niets met dat zweverige maar verder klinkt ie wel heel fijn! Leuk om kado te doen ook :D X

  3. Hehe enchanting huh, nice pun. :’D I’d feel like a total nymph working with these products, either that or Radagast. Whether they actually lift you up high.. no clue. But hey if they’re nice for the skin and they smell lovely, why not!

  4. Oooo these I would love to get to play with these! I’m not much into the mysticism & philosophy (I got a SIL who kink of went overboard on that stuff) but it must be fun to experiment with the different fragrances.

  5. What a sweet idea! I do really like the fairy tale aspect of it. I’m also into meditation, so I like the spirituality of the product too. Thanks for sharing! :)

  6. really awesome looking kit! I love natural products so I love hearing about them on your blog. I also really like oils. thanks for sharing a fantastic review! xx. gigi.

  7. Het ziet er mooi uit! Fijn ook dat het vrij is van agressieve ingrediënten. Ik weet niet of ik het zelf ook zou gebruiken, lichaamsolie gebruik ik eigenlijk maar heel weinig.

  8. Gossie die schrijvers lijken wel magische mushrooms te hebben gegeten voordat ze begonnen met schrijven.. De designs zijn inderdaad erg opvallend en prachtig gedetailleerd uitgewerkt. Ook fijn dat het er vrij sober uitziet, wat dan weer terugkomt op het natuurlijke van het alles.

I love your comments!
