Product of the Month: Max and Me Face Oil "Enchanted"

Max and Me

This months 'Product of the Month' goes to this lovely face oil by max and me. I came across this amazing brand on November when I participated in a training day for their facial products. The smell of this oil is so refreshing and revitalising that it has become a regular part of my facial acupuncture treatmentsI was not at all surprised to find out it had won the Indie Beauty Expo "Best in Show 2016". My clients often want to buy this oil after feeling and smelling it during their treatment. This oil works well with all skin types and doesn't cause breakouts (this is the number one question when it comes to using facial oils).
