The founders are a husband-wife duo who pour their love for each other, nature and skincare to create products that work beyond skin healing and as vibrational tools. Each Max and Me product combines energy healing, aromatherapy and highly vibrant ingredients sourced from sacred pockets around the world. As a Max and Me blogger I’ve had the opportunity to use many products from their exquisite line, including the: Enchanted Face Oil, I am the Light Face Oil, Sweet Serenity Face Mask, The Intuitive Face Mist, Circle of Protection Body Oil, Rescue Balm and Purity & Grace Cleanser. In this Max and Me skincare review, I’ll deep dive into what high-vibe skincare actually is and how Max and Me skincare elevates the skincare experience to nurture body, mind and soul.
What is High Vibe Skincare?
First, let’s look at what high vibrational even means. These days, you don’t have to be a quantum physicist to know that everything is energy at the fundamental level. Science has shown us that everything is energy. It’s in the building blocks of all matter. Our emotions are frequencies throughout the core of our being. This is why among the younger generations, we love to use the verb “vibe” when we say that we vibed with that person or didn’t. We ARE energy. And it seems like our energies communicate with each other.
“Everything is energy. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.” ~ Albert Einstein
Because skincare is matter too, it makes sense that these principles would apply to skincare. Each Max and Me skincare product is a vibrational tool of energetic healing in itself.
Max and Me founders describe high vibrational skincare as:
“The higher an ingredient vibrates, the purer, the more lit from within, the gentler yet the more intense it is. The better it can communicate on a cellular level.
High vibrational ingredients are more focused in their effects, more potent in their healing capacities, more talented in targeting troubled conditions. High vibrational ingredients suffuse your skin and your whole being with love, light and an exquisite harmony, realigning all bodily systems (cells, tissues, organs) and energetic centers (chakras, meridians …) with their perfectly balanced, innate structure and rhythm. Initiating regulating impulses, nurturing self healing capacities. All this is so beautiful and powerful for transforming skin’s overall health and appearance.”
The Sweet Serenity Mask & Wash revitalizes dull, tired & irritated skin with a base of White Kaolin Clay, Manuka Honey, Shea Butter & Mangosteen powder, oils of immortelle, neroli, ylang ylang, lavender, palmarose & rose. Not only does it work to improve your skin it also helps restore your skin’s harmonious rhythm. Incredibly healing, regenerative, soothing and intoxicatingly floral in scent, the Sweet Serenity Mask is an indulgent treat for my skin and I treat each use as its own skincare ceremony.

HOW I USE SWEET SERENITY FACE MASK & WASH:
Max and Me’s Sweet Serenity Face Mask & Wash is a dry slightly creamy paste and I mix it with just a few drops of water to turn it into a smooth & more creamy paste. The shade will go from dark brown to light brown. I then apply and leave it on for about half an hour and sometimes a few hours if possible. They say to use a warm towel but I wash it off with warm water and make sure to massage the product in circles into my skin for an exfoliating effect. My skin is left looking radiant, brighter and more even toned. The skin’s texture and clarity look improved. The best way to get the most out of Sweet Serenity Face Mask is to apply when taking a hot shower as the ingredients will attract moisture. You simply wash it off at the end of your shower for visibly toned, smooth and brighter skin.

Max and Me’s The Intuitive is one of my most beloved Max and Me products. The Intuitive is so much more than a face mist — it’s also an energy healing aura mist that I use with mindful intention to raise my mood and vibration. I look to the highly-vibrant The Intuitive when I need more than just skin hydration as any of my other face mists can provide that for me.
Max and Me The Intuitive face mist features a sublime and rare blend of ingredients only Max and Me would create — calming green Mandarine, Neroli oil from freshly hand-picked organic orange blossoms, calming Benzoe Siam, healing Immortelle, wild agonis to balance circadian rhythms and an infusion of blue tansy, neroli, calendula, rose, myrtle, and yarrow.
While each ingredient was meticulously chosen and sourced based on their vibrancy, my favorite ingredients in The Intuitive is Palo Santo Flower Water and Palo Santo Oil. Almost holy in nature, Palo Santo is sacred and spiritual in indigenous cultures. As with all of Max and Me’s ingredients, the Palo Santo hydrosol and essential oil in The Intuitive is of the highest vibrancy. The Palo Santo is sourced from an intimate distillery in Ecuador that’s dedicated to being in deep communication with the trees to create an essential oil and hydrosol that vibrates at its highest level possible.

One of Max and Me’s cult products happens to be a body care product. Although Max and Me offers four ethereal body oils (Flight to the Sun, Journey in Time, Crystal Clear Beauty and Circle of Protection), the cult favorite is undoubtedly Circle of Protection.
The Max and Me Circle of Protection Body Oil could very well be a skincare product on its own. It’s formulated to vibrate at the highest frequency and heal even the most difficult skin conditions. Circle of Protection isn’t just a body oil to moisturize skin — it’s a corrective remedy that OBL readers have found to be the only product that’s worked for their skin ailments.
Not only are Circle of Protection’s ingredients selected for their ability to heal, soften and nourish your body, but also on their energetic healing abilities:
- Magnolia – eliminates fear of the dark, illuminates your inner self
- Manuka– highly protective ritual oil of the Maori attracts positive energy
- Bourbon Geranium – deflects negative energy and protects
- Jasmine – supports the Qi-energy of the heart, calms the nerves and uplifts the mind, helps with anxiety and restlessness

Max and Me Sweet Serenity Balm is an emergency balm for seriously troubled skin or skin issues. In a base of shea butter and rosehip oil, this potent concoction is very high Immortelle which is incredibly healing and powerfully regenerating. Max and Me Sweet Serenity Balm also contains:
- Antibacterial manuka
- Balancing wild mountain lavender
- Inflammation taming sandalwood
- Regenerating neroli, toning ylang-ylang, soothing palmarose & calming patchouli
Because Sweet Serenity Balm is a small jar, I like to save this for special situations like on days when my skin has been exposed to the sun or if I have had a string of stressful, sleep-deprived days that leave my skin looking hallow. The Max and Me Sweet Serenity Rescue Balm provides:
- Instant relief for irritated, stressed-out, inflamed conditions
- Renews red, irritated, flaky skin
- Relieves hard to treat skin-issues (acne, rosacea, couperose)
- Calms and soothes deeply
The scent is either a love it or a hate it type as it’s quite strong. Almost medicinal and highly floral and herbal, the Sweet Serenity Rescue Balm has an intoxicating scent that may be overpowering for some.
