The Intuitive & Sweet Serenity by max and me

marec 04, 2019

Back in December I never reviewed these two beautiful products from max and me, that were in December Beauty Heroes Beauty Discovery*. I don't have any excuse other than my box arrived late and I simply just didn't get around to it. Lately I've been really into these two special products so let me review them for you now. This discovery is actually still available to purchase (check it out here), but you can always get the products separately (and if you're a Beauty Heroes member you always have 15% off in their Beauty Store).

max and me is an Austrian brand created by Max and Tanja Gruber. I've already wrote about their products when they were featured in a previous BH box (see here). max and me is mostly known for their high vibrational products, as well as high quality and intentionally sourced ingredients - the founders search for ingredients that possess a rare and unusually high level of vibrancy. Guided by their intuition and refines connection to the natural world, they identify pure plant materials that they believe will deeply communicate on a cellular level. The higher the vibration, the more potent their healing capacities.

 Let's start with the Sidekick of this box, the max and me The Intuitive Botanical Facial Mist. "The mist is perhaps the most intuitive skincare product in our repertoire." This is max and me's newest launch and in words of Jeannie & Beauty Heroes team this is the product we instinctively reach for when we need instant skin revitalization, a subtle energy shift or just a little "clearing". The Intuitive is more than just a facial mist. I would say it's similar to Cistus & Moonlight Face Mist* by Earthwise Beauty (review) - it contains beautiful skin beneficial ingredients but it also works as an aura mist. It supports physical and energetic layers and is one of those products that speaks to you when you need it. It is like that with some of the products I have, always with those that have something extra in them, an energy, high vibration that draws me in. For me Earthwise Beauty products are like that and also the Serum* from Emanufaktur (review). There are more but I can't think of them at the moment.

max and me's The Intuitive has strongly been calling me by my name this previous week & who am I to decline its call? It can all sound very strange I'm aware of that but there's just this energy that draws me in. For me one of the signs to either stop or start using the product is its scent. Like for example with The Intuitive. At first I liked the scent, it was nice but after a few days I started using another facial mist. I wanted to get back to it in a couple of weeks later but I found its scent to be very powerful and way too strong for me. I was actually thinking to myself how did I like this scent at the beginning?? Well this week all changed. I used it one morning and I immediately knew what the scent reminds me of. This will only be interesting to my Slovenian and Croatian readers but it reminds me of those chocolate bonbons covered in either white, pink or red sugar. Do you know which ones I mean? Sounds a bit bizzarre because the mist doesn't smell like chocolate or sugar or anything that would remind you of sweets but the mist triggered this memory in me and now every time I mist my face with it, I think of those bonbons. Maybe they're still available, I don't even know, I have to check.

But anyways, The Intuitive in fact smells like Palo Santo, at least this is what I heard because I never smelled Palo Santo. Sourced from a small producer in Ecuador, Palo Santo is the heart of this blend because of its energy-supporting, stress-relieving properties. There's also Yarrow, Bitter Orange, Rose, Calendula, Marula, Hyssop, Helichrysum, Blue Tansy. Beautiful blend. Honestly I can't tell you much about the effect it gives on the skin because I love it so much as is that I wasn't paying much attention to my skin (which is probably a first haha). It's revitalizing, the spray mister gives the most fine mist which I adore and I believe this mist would be great for pretty much all skin types. Love.

Sweet Serenity Mask & Wash was the second product, the Hero of December Beauty Heroes Beauty Discovery. This product is very well loved among other bloggers and green beauty lovers, and I get the hype. This is a honey based mask, more specifically it contains Raw Manuka Honey from New Zealand, but is unlike any other honey based mask or product I've tried before. The mask doesn't look like it would contain honey, it's not runny or liquidy and you don't have to mix it in the jar before use. It's creamy, fluffy and mousse-like. It contains so much goodness - White Kaolin Clay, Shea Butter, Thai Mangosteen Powder, Tamanu Oil, Balinese Cacao Powder, Propolis, Black Cumin Seed Oil, and so much more. Oh, it's a beaut. The scent is strong and powerful. Top notes of Helichrysum, spicy Manuka Honey and sweet Cacao ground the aroma, while floral notes of exotic Gardenia, Geranium, Ylang Ylang, Neroli, Rose, Propolis and Palmarosa, rise up like waves of fruitiness. Even though this mask is fully blended and isn't in a powder form you still have to emulsify it in your hand. If it's dry it will crumble off your skin so make sure you mix it with either water or The Intiutive. I scoop out some mask and in the palm of my hand I mix in some water. Then apply onto freshly cleansed skin and leave on my face for at least 30 minutes. I love leaving it on for an hour. Because this mask contains oils and butters it doesn't rinse off with water, you have to use a washcloth to remove it completely. This mask leaves my skin brighter and more even plus it's super soft and smooth. I love to use it when my skin needs hydration, when it's looking dull and uneven. I find it to be a great morning mask but of course it also works amazing in the evening. Such a beautiful creation. You can get max and me Sweet Serenity Mask & Wash here.
