Ursa Major Fortifying Face Balm

Some moisturizers are so rich they leave you glistening; others so light you're not sure if they are working at all. Consider this face balm 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.

Watery and greasy lotion. not good at all. despite product description, it does not absorb fast and creates shine instead of reducing it.

Smells horrible
Sampled

Used the product once, was happy how well it absorbed and didn't leave an oily residue. Can't say much more as the smell reminds me of wet moldy hay and haven't used it again.

Didn't work

I get very dry skin and use my wife's moisturizer in the winter, I was hoping this would do the trick but within 15 mins my skin was died out again. No thanks!

Didn't enjoy, threw the sample away after two uses

I'm surprised by all of the very high ratings for this product. I used mine twice and didn't like anything about it. The scent is unremarkable, my skin felt oily after using it, I would have returned had I bought it. Maybe it's me though, hard to argue with the 4.5 star average rating.

watery and a bit small

Ursa Major has consistently good products until I tried this. Sample size was too small and the consistency of water. Go to CVS and buy something better

Causes Breakouts
Sampled

I currently use the wash from this company and love it. So, when I received the face balm to try I was excited. Like all of their products, they're natural and organic. The balm had a lotion like consistency and absorbed quickly all of which are good things. The smell was mild and masculine. I was very surprised when I began to experience small breakouts after two days of use. I have sensitive skin and have trusted this brand to provide good products that won't cause acne, but I was wrong to trust the brand this much enough to leave the product on my face as opposed to using their wash, which of course is removed and doesn't stay on the skin.

Well...

My wife loved the scent of this. But it just didn't feel like it did what it was supposed to do.
