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.

I only used this product twice. While it may be good for the skin the smell completely turned me off. I couldn't stand having it on my face.

Bad Reaction
Sampled

I have pretty sensitive skin, so I try to use more natural products like this. I had a severe reaction to this product, however, and am not sure why. The small areas where I applied it became very red, agitated, and the skin started flaking for days. Lesson learned: always test the product on a very small area of skin. I have never had a reaction like this to anything before. Not sure what ingredient was the culprit.

Watery and stinks
Sampled

I don't like the texture... milky. Feel like I would waste some. Plus... I HATE the smell. Medical... musty like old.... don't care how this works. It is the worst thing I have put on my face smell-wise.

Pore Clogging Ingredients
Sampled

Chondrus Crispus is one of the worst pore-clogging ingredients. It ranks a 5 on the comedogenic scale. One of the first few ingredients of this product is Chondrus Crispus. Yet, Irsa
major this touts itself as 'protecting your skin without clogging pores' right on the tube. Hm. Not quite.

Too Light

Didn't like this at all. These type of products don't work for me. Cancelling after this bag.

Not good
Sampled

Left skin feeling very dry after application. The consistency was very watery and thin. Also, left skin with the feel of film after use.

Doesn't work as well as other products
Sampled

I love the packaging and the design, but the product didn't work that well for me. I have other lotions that are lighter on the skin and moisturize more effectively. The full size is very expensive.

Not for me..
Sampled

Smells a little funky. Did not seem to keep face moist as compared to Kheils' face balm. Not for me.

I have sensitive skin and this was not a great mix. Not only did it smell bad, it made me breakout

Yuck
Sampled

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