Ursa Major Brand Review

Ursa Major

A few weeks before Valentines day, my fiancé was mentioning how irritated his neck can get after shaving. He was running low on “manly” skincare so I thought that this would be a great Valentines day gift! In my quest to reduce our exposure to toxins and support organic and natural companies I decided to give Ursa Major a try!

I picked up the Stellar Shave Cream and the 4 in 1 Essential Face Tonic. Here are his thoughts on the shave cream! “I like that this is a non-foaming, moisturzing shave cream.” He says that it “leads to a clean shave and reduces the irritation I experience post shaving. It also has a bear on the packaging and it smells nice.” Well, there you go! I have put this on the back of my hand and it is extremely thick, smooth and moisturizing!

The 4 in 1 Essential Face Tonic has quickly become a staple product in both of our skin care routines. I absolutely love this and so does George! It has done wonders in helping my skin! This has Witch Hazel, aloe, a naturally derived BHA (from Willowbark) and a naturally derived AHA (from apple) along with a bunch of other lovely ingredients. Ursa Major breaks down exactly what is in this lovely product and what it can do for your skin.

The 4 in 1 Essential Face Tonic has actually completely replaced my Paula’s Choice AHA Gel. It exfoliates naturally but also has a ton of hydrating ingredients. George says that this really helps to reduce irritation if he uses this immediately after shaving. They do sell this in a smaller size which would be awesome for your gym bag as a post work out refresher!

I should also mention the smell. Oh my goodness the smell. It is heavenly! It’s citrusy and lovely and you just need to smell it to believe me. There are no artificial fragrances so this doesn’t irritate my skin one bit! I really appreciate that this comes with a spray so that you don’t have to waste a lot pouring it onto a cotton pad. It just sprays a fine mist all over the face. Lovely!

Integrity Botanicals, being the lovely company that they are, added these two freebies to the package! I don’t believe George has used these yet but I will keep you updated 🙂 We usually keep small travel sized items for traveling because they’re so convenient!

Have you tried anything from Ursa Major? I’m giving them a huge thumbs up. Both of these products will most certainly be repurchased! That’s a huge compliment in my house where skincare products are always changing!
