About The Brand
Ursa Major’s advanced formulations provide an antidote to the bland, toxic-laden offerings that pervade the marketplace. Comprised of nature’s most effective “super natural” ingredients, their products deliver skincare solutions that are a pleasure to employ.
I use this as my daily SPF application as well as my standard moisturizer, though when my skin is especially dry I need another moisturizer below it. I am happy to have found a non-toxic SPF!
Nice backup SPF
I always say “If you can see outside without a flashlight, you should be wearing SPF.” I don’t want a single ray of UVA or UVB sneaking into my fair skin. That said, SPF 18 isn’t high enough for me to make this my primary sunscreen. I keep it in my gym bag so I can touch up if it’s still light out when I leave. It goes on very white, but does absorb well after a minute or two.
Perfect for everday
I wanted something light with some sun protection and this does the job. I also like to mix just a little bit of foundation and make it a CC cream. Good value
Natural sunscreens are white and this one rubs in well. It leaves a slightly weird feeling to my skin but it’s not bothersome.
I was surprised at how much I liked this moisturizer. It is a great everyday moisturizer.
Left my skin feeling tight
Kept my oily zones dry throughout the day, but my skin is combination, so it didn’t do great things for the rest of my skin. It also left a bit too much of a matte finish, so my cream blush didn’t seem to go on as well.
Great non-greasy sunscreen
This sunscreen is non-greasy, which is great for summer. A little bit goes a long way. If you have dry skin or combination skin, you can just use a little lotion or oil where you need it before putting on the sunscreen. I use the Indie Lee squaline oil on my cheeks before applying this sunscreen.
I’m not sure, maybe I was using it wrong? But it didn’t moisturize well and my skin felt right after I used it…?
It’s perfect, light weight, moisture with spy, and non greasy, mattifying. Leaves beautiful glow! Love, love it!!!
My favorite daily moisturizer
I love this moisturizer. It’s hydrating but also light while providing SPF protection – a perfect combination!
Excellent SPF Moisturizer!
Provides great coverage! Recommend having a serum underneath as it can be hard to apply if your skin is dry.
Love Ursa Major but this lotion didn't work well for me
I love UM’s other products but this spf did not absorb well into my skin. May just be because I am dry, but this one didn’t work well for me.
Hi Julia, if you tend to have dry skin it’s great to use a moisturizer underneath the SPF. This pairs well with the Ursa Major Fortifying Face Balm. Also you will only need half of pump for the SPF!
I love this spf moisturizer. You only need 1 pump to cover your entire face. The “ghosting” effect is present at first, but goes away as long as you rub it in really well. It leaves my skin feeling so smooth and matte. If you have dry skin, this isn’t super moisturizing, so a facial oil or serum before using this would be ideal.
Best non-toxic spf I’ve found!
I love this lightweight lotion that provides me with SPF protection. It glides on great and you don’t need a lot of product for full coverage.
Love the natural, safe ingredients but not as moisturizing as I'd hoped
Would love it even more if the packaging wasn’t plastic
Never Been More Happy with an SPF
I have super sensitive skin, especially in the sun. This sunscreen is very lightweight and does not feel slippery like some other products. It also doesn’t give off a white tint like other physical sunscreens. Definitely recommend!
Offers light protection and helps skin
As a sunscreen, I like the tinted facial moisturizer from Raw Elements better because it’s 30 SPF instead of 18 SPF. Expect some “ghosting” with this product, especially if your skin tone is on the medium – dark side. Although I won’t buy more because of the “ghosting” effect, this lotion actually makes my skin look supple and hydrated, so it is more than just a sunscreen. I just noticed Follain recommends pairing this item with Gressa- which is a liquid foundation, that sounds fascinating and worth a try!
good product, but am not a huge fan of the “unscented scent” compared to some of their other products
Thanks Follain for your comment and quick response. I was using 2-3+ pumps. Based on your feedback I switched to 1 pump and now I love it!
finally a sunscreen with NO SMELL!
I’ve only been using this for a couple days but I love that it is UNscented…the first face spf I have found without some sort of smell. It is a low # spf but better than zero plus doesn’t feel heavy. A little goes a really long way, half a pump covers my entire face.
I was so excited about this and wanted to love it. Unfortunately, it goes on thick and leaves a white coating like sunblock. Even after applying make up, my skin looked white. I’ve been searching for a non-chemical lotion with sunblock and really hoped this would be it.
