Love the toner, hate the deodorant from this brand. The toner is amazing and super hydrating. The deodorant does not work at all.

Feedback

Please re-formulate the deodorant.

My two Holy Grail products are the face wash and face lotion. I have been using them for over a year and I will never stop. I was introduced to the brand from Heyday Skincare when I got my facial with them. Highly recommend especially if you have acne-prone skin!

I'm not sure what the theme of this brand is; I have seen it a Y7 yoga and at the Tend dentist office and whenever I've tried it, it just seems like drugstore quality (+ drugstore isn't bad per se, but yeah)

It felt super clean, but I didnโ€™t love the smell, and I didnโ€™t see major results.

Better smell!

I really wanted to love Ursa Major - the packaging is simple, yet slightly whimsical; the products are clean, and their assortment is relatively navigable. But after using multiple products (Vit C serum, face wash, eye cream) I felt as if I were buying a slightly better and cleaner version of what I might pick up in a drugstore. The products did not feel particularly special on my skin, nor are their formulations anything innovative (something I always look for when evaluating skincare!) The bottom line: Ursa Major's products sit at the premium end of what you might buy at Target, but do not quite deliver the same value as other 'premium' brands that you might find at a Credo or a Detox Market. More importantly, relative to other clean skincare brands that are the same or better-priced (Kinship, OneLove Botanicals) it doesn't deliver the same value.

I bought the sensitive deodorant but it actually still stung. Which is weird because it had no baking soda which gives me rashes. Also the deodorant wasn't effective.

Ursa Major is a solid brand for what I think of as a "Premium drug store" brand. Definitely a better option than the classic brands you might typically find in a drug store, it's a company I feel good about buying from and has clean ingredients, but at the end of the day, there are just products I prefer more, that I normally buy over these. (I do often find myself traveling with their mini deodorant stick and face wipes in my bag though)

I have tried the Golden Hour Recovery Cream and it left my skin super nourished and moisturized. I did find that you needed a lot of the product in order for it to do it's thing.

Feedback

Bigger portions would be my only suggestion!

Honestly wasn't super impressed. Doesn't feel like anything special.

Feedback

The scent was too herbal for me and the face balm stung a bit.

I purchased the deoderant. My mom passed away from breast cancer so I try to steer clear of deoderants with chemicals. This was a really nice easy to apply option. So many natural options are messy and nasty.
