Ursa Major

Today I want to talk a little bit about a gem of a brand that I've been absolutely adoring lately. Hailing from the beautiful Burlington, VT, Ursa Major is a brand that I feel I've been seeing everywhere lately. It's been getting a lot of blogger love and with good reason - all the products are wonderfully sized and filled with the best of the best natural ingredients that combine to make an all-around excellent skincare line. I've been testing out a few of their products the past few weeks and am ready to tell you guys a little more about them.

First up is the brand's Face Tonic*, a 4-in-1 cleanser, exfoliator, healer and hydrator. Filled with ingredients like bamboo, witch hazel and aloe, this powerful formula works to remove any makeup or grime your cleanser might have missed. I love using it after their Face Wash (more on that in a minute), spritzing a bit on a cotton swab and gently rubbing it around my face to fully cleanse. It's not at all drying and instead is the perfect primer to whatever form of a moisturizer you might use after. It's become one of my favorite toners, and I'm so pleased with the size of the bottle it comes with (8 ounces!) because I know it's going to last for quite some time.

Also coming in a generously sized bottle, the Ursa Major Face Washis a foaming gel cleanser that brightens up your complexion with ingredients such as aloe, green tea and lemon. It has an incredibly clean, almost masculine scent that makes it perfect for both myself and my boyfriend to use - it's one of the only skincare products I've actually caught him using. It's quite cleansing and really leaves your face squeaky clean without ever dehydrating your skin. Instead it helps take off any dirt or grime, helping me keep my face much more blemish free.

Having just moved to Northern Minnesota, I've definitely become exposed to the straight up wilderness. I've been loving the Ursa Major Trailside Candle* for a subtle, fresh scent that fills up the room with cedar, spruce, sandalwood, mint and orange. The candle is made up of soy wax and has the most beautiful light scent to freshen up any room. I've been slowly making the switch to soy candles and have been so pleasantly surprised at how well they have been working - this gem is no exception, and I find that it burns incredibly well while still throwing the scent beautifully.

With such a wide variety of products Ursa Major is definitely a brand to look out for. I'm dying to try out more from the line and cannot wait to see what products they come up with next!
