Product Review: 'Fortifying Face Balm' by Ursa Major VT

Ursa Major VT is another brand whose products I've come to really love and trust.  Their Fortifying Face Balm is a super lightweight moisturizer with potent anti-aging properties that work to keep your complexion looking and feeling soft, supple, and youthful.  

One of my favorite things about this moisturizer, second to its effectiveness, is its subtle, herbal scent... with notes of lavender, lime, spearmint, and rosemary, it's perfect for both men and women!  

Another thing I love, is its unique, lightweight, serum-like texture that absorbs quickly, while still bringing deep hydration to your skin.  When fully absorbed (15-30 seconds after application), it leaves a smooth, even matte finish; which makes it ideal for oily complexions. However, I have dry, sensitive skin and it always leaves my skin feeling calm, fresh and perfectly moisturized.  It also makes a fantastic primer for pre makeup application! 

Key Ingredients Include:  Aloe, Sunflower, Witch Hazel, Willow Bark Extract, Kendi Seed, Carrot, Birch, and Olive.  

This unique, natural combination of ingredients not only moisturizes your complexion and increases the firmness and elasticity, but it simultaneously provides powerful calming and antiseptic properties to sooth and balance your skin.  I mean really, what more could you ask for??  The New York Times Style Magazine loves this product as well, calling it, "A versatile product with endless possibilities."  I couldn't agree more!

The Fortifying Face Balm is gluten-free, vegan, cruelty-free, and derived from 100% natural ingredients; 82% of which are organic.  They also source their ingredients from family-owned, sustainable growers as often as possible.  Ursa Major's products never contain any petrochemicals, sulfates, parabens, synthetic fragrance or color, glycols, silicones or PEGs. This product is gluten-free, vegan & cruelty-free.

You can purchase Ursa Major VT's Fortifying Face Balm in a 2.5oz pump bottle directly from their site for $36, which is a great price because you only need about a half pump of product to cover your entire face.  You can also purchase a package that includes a full size bottle (2.5oz) along with a travel size bottle for $48.  Their travel sizes are perfect for any wanderluster, outdoors enthusiast, or jet-setter!
