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.

Squeaky clean

This product is perfect! I like the way it made my skin feel super clean without stripping it. I also really enjoyed the fragrance. It was a bit minty with some citrus notes. I look forward to adding this to my daily regimen. Nice choice team!

Great refreshing smell.

Smells great, I know people will use this in the morning but I use it at night. It's a great way to get the grime from the day off and fell a little refreshed before bed.

Did nature just clean my face?

I have never tried a natural skin care product for my face, but this leaves a great smooth feeling post-wash. I'll accept it.

Great everyday face wash

The texture was unlike any face wash I have ever used which I liked. The product lathers into a very soft foam. The smell is awesome.

I'd highly recommend this product to anyone who has a low beard or anyone who keeps a little stuble on their face. It has a nice scrubbing/exfoliating quality and a great scent. I'd
