Perfect every-day moisture for oily or acne-prone skin
I have struggled with acne and oily skin since I was in elementary school and have struggled to find a moisturizer that is heavy enough to get me through the winter while also not looking shiny or oily or causing break-outs. I wanted something that I could use every day either with a bare face or under makeup or sunscreen, and not have to change my routine. The Golden Hour Recovery Cream is it! I started using it as a night cream because I thought it might be too heavy for daytime wear, but over time I became addicted to it and now I wear it every day, plus at night over a serum or face oil. It leaves my skin looking dewy and moisturized without any oily sheen, and it doesn’t cause me to break out. It’s also deep enough to keep my skin moisturized through the dry winter or during lots of intense work travel, and works great for layering under or over other products depending on the season and day. I keep a stock pile in my medicine cabinet because I can’t go without it!
Seriously love this cream. I have sensitive/super dry skin that reacts to a number of ingredients. It’s always tough for me to find a moisturizer that is deeply hydrating without causing a break out. I had NO reaction to the Golden Hour Recovery Cream. I use it a few times a week in the PM after cleansing, and it takes care of my skin all night long. I wake up with totally nourished and hyrdated skin, no dry patches, and a glow! Some people have made note of the smell, it’s slight – but it dissipates quickly. The amount of product is on the smaller side (1.7 oz) but a little goes a very long way.
Super happy with this moisturizer
I’ve been on the hunt for a moisturizer that works in the New England winter without leaving me feeling sticky. Somtimes I’ll use a moisturizer at night and it doesn’t feel like it even absorbs and I wake up dry. Not this one! Goes on smooth, absorbs nicely and wake up with hydrated skin. I use in combination with the Indie Lee CoQ-10 toner and squalane oil. Love it. Definitely sticking with this routine all winter long. Honestly feel like I could still use this moisturizer in the summer too. Also – haven’t had a break out since using it!
My fav moisturizer
I just reordered one of these because its the best moisturizer I’ve found. I have semi dry skin and this leaves my skin feeling super hydrated. It’s especially amazing in the winter, and lasted me a really long time.
Best Lotion Ever!!
Doesn’t matter the skin-type or time of year, this is the lotion for you. It is the perfect scent and consistency to actually make your skin feel moisturized AND one of the only moisturizers that didn’t make me have pimples after continous use! I use this as a spot treatment on scars as well! Love this product!!
This cream is hydrating, lightweight, has a light scent that doesn’t linger, and works well with my combination skin. 10/10 (even though it’s pretty pricey)
Best night time moisturizer for combo skin
I used to think all moisturizers and creams were the same, and it’s not worth to splurge on them. I was wrong. My skin drinks this up, it goes on feeling light, non-greasy, spreads easily, and doesn’t make my skin oily. The scent is okay, I like it it’s just different because it smells natural like it has so much good stuff for your skin, it’s just different don’t expect it to smell like flowers and fruit and stuff.
I don’t think it’s done miracle things for my acne or anything (I’m working through that with other products), but I haven’t had a dry patch of skin since I started using this, and I don’t have more acne than before, so that feels like a win. My skin feels like a baby’s butt, it looks healthier and the texture has improved.
I don’t use that much product, every other night I dab a few dots all over my face and neck, maybe the size of a dime, and that’s all I need!
This is worth the money.
Best Cream Ever!
I’ve tried many moisturizers, but this by far has been the best facial cream for my acne and combination skin. It helps clear my face while leaving it with the perfect amount of hydration! I use it in combination with the osea ocean cleanser and Indie Lee COQ-10 toner. I’ve never seen my skin so clear! My sister has far more delicate and sensitive skin, its been able to clear up her skin in ways no other cream and routine has been able to! I’m just bummed they are sold out!
love it - hope it comes back - I am all out!
I love this cream and it is doing wonderful things for my skin. I have to be very carful with products – they have to be Gluten Free. It has been out of stock for ages, do hope it will come back
Drink for my skin
Absolutely love this. I have extremely sensitive skin and in the Winter months very bad eczema. I’ve had eczema on my eye lids before, when I feel dry and tight this cream helps save my skin. This is incredible, my skin drinks it up! Many other “sensitive skin friendly” creams and lotions do not work for me. This makes my skin actually feel hydrated and dewy. I am currently out of this and it’s sold out!!! I need this please restock!
SMELLS AND FEELS AMAZING
this feels so so good on your skin – super hydrating yet not too thick
hydrating and velvety
great overnight cream! not sticky, not too thick… goes on super smooth. when I wake up in the morning my skin feels so soft!
love it for nighttime use
this moisturizer is super nice although i personally feel that it’s a little too heavy for me to wear during the day (I have oily skin) so I use it at night. my skin has been looking really healthy this winter and I credit this moisturizer:)
Favorite moisturizer yet
So happy to have found a daily moisturizer that is both clean and effective! I have pretty dry skin so I use this morning and night year round. Will sometimes follow up with a facial oil during winter months. Great scent, highly recommend!
highly recommended night cream
Ursa Major is a highly moisturizing night cream that absorbs quickly but leaves your skin feeling hydrated.
Goes on light, moisturizes deeply!
I have dry skin year round so I typically look for a nighttime moisturizer that I can really slather on but this cream goes on light and absorbs quickly so I didn’t think it would work well. Boy was I wrong!! This has been a total game changer! I have been using it night and day and have the best skin of my life! No more dry spots and soo many compliments about the texture and evenness of my skin!! I can’t speak for my oily sisters but I highly recommend to anyone who has struggled with dry skin, this is it!
best moisturizer ever😍
This product is liquid gold. it is my favorite skincare product that I use and after I first started using it my skin felt amazing and has more of a glow. it feels so luxurious and smells amazing, 100% worth it!
No Fuss Highly Effective Night Cream
I use this as my night cream and during the day if I don’t need to be anywhere and can just be at home.
This does wonders on my skin, especially when my skin is not doing its best. When I put it on at night the next morning my skin feels extremely refreshed, soft, and brighter.
I’d say it’s a pretty thick cream, which is why I refrain from using it during the day if I am going to put make up on, but it’s the perfect night cream or any time you skin needs a little extra help. I use this after traveling as well to help replenish my face.
I’d also note that after putting it on it does give my skin a little tingly feeling but once it’s absorbed that feeling goes away. Additionally, once absorbed it doesn’t feel heavy or oily but it also doesn’t feel like you’re not wearing any type of moisturizer.
Overall 5/5, I’ve been constantly on the search for a great night cream and I don’t think I need to look anymore with this product!
Super Hydrating & Smells Great
This moisturizer smells amazing and is really hydrating without being super heavy or oily. My skin usually gets pretty upset whenever I use creams that are as thick as this, but my skin has been loving this one. 10/10 would recommend.
less redness with rosacea!
Hydrated dry spots and decreased redness, this product is a Godsend!
I have sensitive combination skin and I find this cream very hydrating and calming. I use it day or night. Upon applying I do feel like it creates a film in my skin but the sensation does not last through the day. Overall great product, I am very pleased with it.
Very happy with recovery cream
I use it every morning and find it’s benefits last throughout the day.
Super moisturizing and light
Love this cream. I use a hydrating spray and facial oil with this as my top layer. Absorbs deeply and keeps my skin feeling healthy and firm. Love the smell! Lasts ages because I only need to do a tiny bit at a time.
Not nice feeling
I like that it minimizes redness, but it made me feel like I am wearing thin plastic on my face and my face was sweating. Very uncomfortable especially during summer
This moisturizer is awesome! I have combo sensitive skin and this didn’t break me out! Great smell too!
By far THE best moisturizer I have ever used. My skin is glowing after my skincare routine using this product. The price may turn some away, but this is an investment in happy healthy glowing skin and mine is loving me for treating it so well after switching products!! Try it.. I bet you’ll be hooked too!!
This is the best cream I’ve ever found. It is not oily and absorbs immediately. It smells fantastic and is great at night or under make up.
I have searched for years for a clean and effective face moisturizer. After going through so many, I decided to make my own and have never found anything store bought that works as well until now! One of the most hydrating skin products I’ve ever used. My skin loves it and I’m so happy I found this product.
Got this moisturizing cream as a sample and loved it so much I had to grab the full-size! Goes on a bit greasy for my skin but it doesn’t irritate it at all. I use it at night after I clean my sensitive skin with micellar water. Feels magical!
Liked at first, now feels waxy
I liked this moisturizer at first but now it feels a bit suffocating to my skin. I’m not a big lemongrass fan and that’s what I would compare the smell to.
This makes my skin moisturized and smooth. Doesn’t leave it feeling greasy. I mean at first the omega smell would bother you but you get used to it and it is so worth the money
Redness and Dry face happy now!
I orginally purchased this as part of the travel kit and fell in love with it!. I have struggled with super dry skin, sensitive to (literally) everything and have redness. This is the first moisturizer that leaves my skin with less redness, no more dry itchy patches and also doesn’t make my skin oily in the T zone.
I saw improvement after only one day. My skin looked dewy, fresh, hydrated. I’ve been using one week now and deem this a miracle cream! Smells good, too. Natural, not chemical-y scent.
Hydrating and possibly my favorite new product
Bought this on a whim when I wanted to find a new moisturizer and just bought my second container. Really hydrating which is great for winter. I have combination skin and have not had any problems. This will be my go to for awhile!
favorite skin product
In my early 20s. I have acne, not deep and all over, but my skin has always had a breakout on it in some spot since high school. Can never be sure what to attribute clearing to, but since using the EarthTu cleanser and this moisturizer consistently (after years of not-clean products) my skin has been the clearest it’s been in soooo long! Apart from that, it smells delicious and subtle (kind of like tea, to me), makes my combination skin feel so hydrated but not heavy or over-oiled. I look forward to applying it every day, and can certainly say even if it’s not entirely responsible for clearing my skin, it can only have been helping!
I use this cream daytime under makeup. Moisturizing but not oily, absorbs quickly. A nice, solid moisturizer for dry fall/winter in New York.
Exactly what I was looking for
Excellent moisturizer—thick but not greasy, easily absorbed, perfect at night or under makeup during the day.
An absolute dream
I wholeheartedly adore the Golden Hour Recovery Cream by Ursa Major. I tried this out through the Clean Essentials Kit, and immediately fell in love. The texture is light and dreamy, and immediately absorbs into my skin. In addition, it also smells like turmeric (although I do not believe it is an ingredient), and has made me consistently crave a Golden Milk Latte. I have had trouble finding turmeric tea, since I just moved, but I finally purchased it at an obscure store. Now I can happily drink my tea while feeling pampered by this magical cream. I love the glow it imbues, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to feel like they are healing through their skincare. Just make sure to have turmeric tea on hand ;).
My go-to winter moisturizer!
This cream is my skincare savior in the cold North winters. It’s like a big glass of water for dry skin. Heavy enough to replenish moisture, but doesn’t feel greasy or clog my pores. It drys to a nice silky finish. I honestly can’t say enough good things about this moisturizer, except that I love, love, love it!
A little goes a long way!
Great face cream! It moisturizes without being greasy. I have sensitive, acne prone skin, and so far this has been great!!!
This moisturizer smells great, and absorbs so quickly. I use a small amount, which covers my entire face and leaves the whole thing feeling soft and moisturized. I got the sample size in the Clean Essentials kit and bought the larger size after I ran out!
Amazing Face Cream
I was introduced to this cream through the Follain Kit and have since bought the regular size version twice. It is incredibly nourishing and healing and a perfect night cream for me, especially here in dry Colorado.
Lightweight and hydrating keeps my skin hydrated for a good portion of my day
Works great and doesn’t leave skin oily
I use this day and night for whenever my skin some hydrating TLC. I love the creamy texture and quick absorption, even when I’m a little too generous with the application.
Love love love this cream. First off its smells amazing, definitely not what you would expect and may not be for everyone as it has a stronger scent but you don’t notice it after a few uses. Only a small amount goes and long way and as someone with combo skin, I have found with a lot of products that my face gets oily by the end of the day. Not a problem with this at all, it really has kept my skin looking fresh and fantastic.
Needed in Transitional
We moved 6month or so ago from a densley humid environment to a dry mountainous region. I have tried at least a hand full of new moisturizers from varying pricepoints over this time. My skin use to be combination to oily and has become immensely dry and a few wrinkles have surfaced. Since using this just a few days that’s improved drastically. It’s a bit heavy at first but once I get going I cant even notice and my day patches actually diminish.
Great product. I live in Hawaii and I needed something after a day in the sun. It feels very hydrating and last awhile without drying out. I am definitely going to order again.
I liked this facial moisturizer however I never love products that come in a tub and I didn’t love the smell. It wasn’t a bad smell, it just wasn’t my favorite. I am going to stick with another moisturizer that I use at night and I will just also use it in the morning in replacement of this product. And I’m not saying I wouldn’t purchase this again, just not anything to rave about.
This lotion is a great nighttime lotion. It’s thick and very hydrating. It has a fairly strong smell that may not be for you if you’re sensitive to smells but I personally really like the smell. I do feel like it moisturizes my face really well but I tend to have a slight bit of tingling/burning in dry spots on my face at times.
Love this moisturizer!
I have rosacea and very dry skin. I love this moisturizer because it is gentle enough to not irritat my skin and still does a great job of keeping my skin hydrated without breaking me out. It absorbs wonderfully. My skins seems to drink it up every time I use it.
Seriously makes my skin glow and feel so refreshed! I have such sensitive skin and redness is such a problem for me when I change up my products. HOWEVER! I have found my new holy grail for my skin care!
Initially pleased but mystery specks in one batch
Really like the texture and absorbs quickly but I find it wasn’t ideal for especially sensitive/occasionally dry areas around nose area and the second time I purchased I found tiny hard flecks throughout the product–not sure exactly what they were–thought at first they might be dried pieces of the cream itself but the pieces didn’t melt/absorb, felt almost like plastic, and unfortunately had to pick them out instead.
Hi Alex- so sorry for any issues here! Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help set you up with another cream!
This is such a great discovery. I’ve been using this cream for 2 weeks now and i love the way it makes my skin feel and look. I actually feel like i look for fresh and youthful. will definitely be buying again.
Fast absorbing and effective
Creamy lotion and nice fragrance.
I have seen positive results in less than a week.
I am looking forward to using this
moisturizer for a long time.
Super rich face cream
This is definitely a great “recovery” cream! After a long week at work I look forward to putting this on before bed and waking up with a really great glow. Slightly too rich for day wear, but perfect for overnight.
I would be happy to order it again
My skin is typically very dry and itchy after washing and is a struggle to balance out with the right moisturizer. Im pretty pleased with this moisturizer though. A little goes a long way and I don’t need to put it on repeatedly to balance out my skin like I do with other products. It goes on feeling a little tacky but drys nice. It has an earthy smell (not my favorite) but it goes away after 10 min, so I don’t mind.
Great night time recovery
This cream is perfect for a nighttime recovery cream. I have never woke up and thought my skin looked amazing until I tried this cream!
Put this on at night and look like an awakening princess in the morning.
So thick and creamy but does not leave your skin feeling greasy or heavy. I use this morning and night and I love the way it makes me feel and evens out my skin.
scent wasn't my favorite at first.....
….but now i love it!
it’s one of those sleepers – all of a sudden i realize my skin is looking great and no winter dryness!
Great night cream
I use this every night as it’s very hydrating on my skin and it smells great. Would purchase again.
Tingles and feels fresh on the skin. I use this cream every morning and night.
Calms and Soothes
My husband loves this cream and uses it after he shaves. The calendula feels really healing and is especially nice in the winter to sooth dry and chapped skin.
Luxurious & Moisturizing
Love this for a deep moisturizer. I use it as part of my nighttime skincare routine. It feels luxurious, like I’m getting a spa treatment. It has a fruity smell which I don’t mind.
