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.

Good but not for me

I have very balanced skin so for me most products cause me to break out. This one did. It's not a bad product. The smell isn't for everyone. It works, maybe too well for me as my skin dried up and broke out.

Simply Fantastic

The Ursa Major Fantastic Face Wash was a interesting reprieve from the normal exfoliating face wash products. This product does not contain any micro bead things and does a great job at leaving my skin clean. I also liked the smell.

It's great!

Usually when I see that something exfoliates my pores, I cringe a bit. Not because I don't like clean pores, but the exfoliating process is usually very uncomfortable for me. This I don't feel anything at all and my pores do get cleared out. It's very good.

Can't feel results

Product smells like vodka... I didn't feel a tingling or any type of exfoliation after using and thats after letting it sit on my face for 30-60 seconds. I would not buy this product.
