Before you moisturize, get clean with Ursa Major’s Fantastic Face Wash.

Ursa Major

Birchbox Breakdown

Choosing a moisturizer often means making a sacrifice: Either you opt for a deeply hydrating cream that can leave skin looking downright reflective, or you go for something lightweight that doesn’t seem to do much of anything. Consider this face balm as the ultimate happy medium. Even though it absorbs fast and reduces shine, the all-natural formula delivers serious moisture while keeping skin firm and youthful.

How it Works

Antiseptic properties help to fight ingrown hairs and razor burn while anti-aging properties help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

How to Use

After washing, massage balm onto entire face and neck. Wait 15-30 seconds for balm to absorb. This balm works well as an everyday moisturizer or an aftershave.

Only moistureizer my husband will use

My husband is not a "products" guy. I've been trying to get him to moisturize for years & I finally just bought him this & he loves it! He says it's really light & doesn't make his skin feel greasy. It smells good too, but not girly.

This really works!

I purchased to this because recently I have been having a lot of ingrown hairs on my neck, I have been using this product along with the other 2 products in the line and it has helped tremendously!!! My ingrown hairs have almost completely gone away!!! I will definitely order more once I run out. My only complaint about this product is that it leaves my face feeling a little greasy.

Nice lotion

Has a nice smell and texture. It matches my face wash so the smells are complementary. I like the simple packaging and the colors.

Practically Flawless

I'm pretty picky when it comes to my skincare. I used to suffer from pretty bad acne and after every imaginable treatment from chemical peels to lasers to Accutane three times, my skin is worlds different. I've come to learn which products work and don't work with my skin type. After using Ursa Major's face balm for almost six months now it has become a permanent fixture in my daily routine. Washington, DC is one of the most consistently humid places in the summer. Usually I would have to switch from Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream in the winter to the Kyoku Facial Moisturizer in the summer. Ursa Major's face balm is well balanced enough for me to use year round. I don't feel greasy or thick in the hot, humid summers and keeps me well moisturized in the dryer winters. The fragrance is nice and light, yet pleasing. Also huge bonus points for being completely natural and 82% organic. The only thing that I kind of miss with this product is not having a built-in SPF (which I understand may be in the works for Ursa Major) and the only factor preventing me from giving this product a 5-star rating.

Perfect light moisturizer

I'm a huge fan of this brand. It's all-natural (and mostly organic), and they pack it with a great variety of skin-nourishing botanicals that not only smell great, but work wonders on skin. I've got sensitive and acne-prone skin, this stuff is very gentle and absorbs completely. No residue whatsoever, just soft and hydrated skin. The bottle lasts a long time too (it spreads very easily so a little goes a long way).

Only negative point is that it's too light for use in the winter, but it's totally perfect for warm and humid weather.
