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.

smells great, but sticky texture
Sampled

I'm not an expert on this stuff, but the texture of the balm was a bit strange. left my face and hands feeling a little sticky. It smells great, though. Nice to sample, but I don't think I'd buy it.

Not great for my skin type
Sampled

I have oily face, and even with using a face wash, this balm started to break my face out. So I switched to using it on my neck/shoulders , and this balm was nice and smoothing. It did absorb fast, and did not leave a film.

Not overwhelmed
Sampled

I am not wild about this product. It has a bland smell and a very wet feel. It isn't greasy, which is nice, but it seems a little runny. All things considered, not my favorite.

Not good enough to switch from my regular daily moisturizer
Sampled

My daily moisturizer is Kiehl's energizing facial fuel and I really like it. This isn't good enough to get me to switch. Goes on a little thick, meaning I feel like it takes quite a bit to cover my whole face and neck (and head because I'm bald). I like an energizing scent in a daily moisturizer and this is pretty neutral so that's just a matter of preference.

Ineffective
Sampled

Products was very watery with a mediocre fragrance. Almost immediately after applying it feels more like my skin is drying out.

Its...fine

i don't really use a whole lot of face balm. I have a beard first of all. And second, I just never use it. I have decent skin so really love this

Giving to my Wife

She uses this product after receiving it in her Birchbox. I personally don't like the smell, and will not use it.

Oily Water... For Your Face!
Sampled

I don't have a lot to say about this product. At 32, I'm still fighting to control my acne and because of my combination skin, some areas on my face get more dried out than others, which presented me an opportunity to try out the face balm. Suffice to say, it didn't notice any change in the quality of my skin and it felt like rubbing smelly, oily water into my face.
