Ursa Major

Birchbox Breakdown

Named for the big bear constellation often used by travelers to find true North, Ursa Major is out to help you awaken from your lifelong grooming hibernation. This refreshing face wash is a welcome first step. The foaming gel removes oil and dirt, unclogs blocked pores, and brightens your skin, all without drying out your face.

How it Works

This smart wash uses a mix of high-quality essential oils, including cedar, spearmint, lime, lemon, rosemary, and black spruce. Since it’s free of fillers, the formula goes a long way.

How to Use

Wet face, then pour nickel-size amount into your palm. Use both hands to massage thoroughly over face and neck. Rinse. For an extra deep clean, leave it on for 30-60 seconds before rinsing off.

Decent product. Consistency of the product is a little too runny, i would prefer something with a higher viscosity so i could ration it easier. Smells nice and foams up well

Great for in the shower or in the sink. Not harsh on the skin and it doesn't leave the skin feeling dry or tight!
