Ursa Major

Birchbox Breakdown

Bonnie and Clyde, Simon and Garfunkel, Brangelina—some things are just better together. Add to the list this grooming duo. The concentrated shave cream (named the Best Shave Cream in 2012 by Esquire) uses essential oils to soften whiskers, while the fast-absorbing face balm soothes rashes and reduces ingrown hairs, while delivering serious moisture. The upshot: smooth, hydrated, younger-looking skin.

How it Works

The non-foaming shave cream provides a smooth barrier and close shave, while essential oils like vetiver, ginger, and fir soften and moisturize skin. The face balm contains antiseptics that diminish razor burn and ingrown hairs, while anti-aging ingredients like myrtle and kendi seed reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

How to Use

A nickel-size dollop of the shave cream will do you. Apply to clean, moist face and massage everywhere there’s hair before shaving. Post-shave, or whenever called for, rub a small amount of balm into clean, dry skin.

I give it 4 stars for the Balm...

The shave cream is mediocre and so so, but the big winner here is the face balm. First off the minty scent is pleasant and it feels cooling on your cheeks after shave. I especially like that it has no preservatives in it and an incredibly small amount goes a very, VERY long way. I gave this product 3 stars because the balm turned to a taupe and then to a tan in contrast to it's initial WHITE color upon purchase--I guess that's where preservatives come in handy. Overall I'd say skip the shave cream and pick up the balm, especially as we head into fall and winter.

Love Ursa Major

I had no brand famiarity prior to receiving a sample of the face pads. I now own the entire line. I'm very picky about how a lotion feels on my hand and how it smells. The face lotion was by far the best for me on the market. I also love the company!

super product

The shaving cream goes on real smooth and gives a real close shave with no razpr burn. A little goes a long way.The balm is interesting in that it lacks a smell, but goes on real nice and dries rather quickly.
