  • My most favorite facial sunscreen

    Jen S. December 18, 2020

    My most favorite facial sunscreen ever! Light enough to not show once it’s rubbed in. It doesn’t dry my skin at all, but great protection. Love it!

    Pamela P. July 22, 2020

    It works well. I am glad to have it this summer. It is light and effective . Enjoy the container for a quick application before going outdoors.

  • Daily Defense Lotion

    Lisa B. July 16, 2020

    Fantastic- just the right amount of daily coverage that is light and absorbing.

  • I use the product daily

    Oliver May 04, 2020

    I use the product daily and am very pleased.

  • Love this!

    Lauren O. April 09, 2020

    This is a great daily moisturizer. It goes on easily and soaks into my skin great. It doesn’t leave my face feeling sticky at all which has been the case with other face sunscreens I have tried. Definitely worth trying!

  • One of the best moisturizers I have used!

    Victoria N. April 08, 2020

    I have combination skin which can make it somewhat difficult when searching for products that truly works with my skin. The Daily Defense Lotion works wonderfully to moisturize my jaw line, cheeks, and forehead which are typically dry while also balancing out my nose and chin which can get quite oily throughout the day. This face lotion is very lightweight so I don’t feel like I have an added layer on my skin but it still provides adequate moister, especially during the winter months (in MN) where my skin gets extra dry! I use one pump of the lotion after washing my face with the Fantastic Face Wash (highly recommend this as well) and I have perfectly moisturized skin all day. A little goes a long way. The SPF is an added bonus! I would highly recommend this product!

  • The Best lotion with SPF

    Rachel L. February 18, 2021

    Amazing product, absorbs nicely and doesn’t clog my pores. You can use every day.

  • Effective product that absorbs quickly.

    Marta March 08, 2021

    Effective product that absorbs quickly. Feels light on skin.

  • Held up for the Spring Sun

    Kathryn M. April 19, 2021

    Strong sun here out in Central Oregon, and the Force Field has done a great job protecting my pale winter skin. Great to be able to get some sunshine and know I’m staying safe from UV rays and know I’m using clean products!

  • It's great!

    Joseph B. July 19, 2021

    It’s great!

  • Works great

    Susan M. August 08, 2021

    Works great

  • Can't use anything else

    Samantha W. August 22, 2021

    I spent years and many dermatologist appointments looking for a sunscreen that didn’t give me a rash. I thought I would never find one, but I decided to give Ursa Major a try and it worked! It goes on easily and quickly disappears into your skin (which is not the case for most physical sunblocks). It doesn’t cause my skin to breakout either. I have used this on my skin before a full sunny day at Disney World, and I came home without a sun burn. This stuff is pricy, but I’ll gladly keep paying for it with how well it works.

  • I've been looking for a

    Suzanne S. September 17, 2021

    I’ve been looking for a good clean daily moisturizer with an spf that suits my needs and my lifestyle. This fits nicely into the rest of my Ursa Major skin regimen. I think it’s the most perfect everyday skincare product!

  • Not your average sunscreen

    Clara R. January 03, 2021

    I love this stuff. It doesn’t smell like sunscreen and the texture doesn’t make me want to gag. It goes on smooth and makes my skin feel pretty. I wear it before hiking, going on little walks, or various other outdoor activities.

  • Love it

    D.sbranti April 28, 2020

    Love the light creamy feel, ease of spread, and best of all the white disappears quickly.

  • Favorite SPF

    Samantha M. March 27, 2019

    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

    Shelby S. March 22, 2019

    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

    Kristin E. December 13, 2018

    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

  • Almost there

    Jessica B. November 27, 2018

    Natural sunscreens are white and this one rubs in well. It leaves a slightly weird feeling to my skin but it’s not bothersome.

  • Lightweight

    Nicole F. October 06, 2018

    I was surprised at how much I liked this moisturizer. It is a great everyday moisturizer.

  • Left my skin feeling tight

    Erin I. August 16, 2018

    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

    Akl August 14, 2018

    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.

  • Not fond.

    Abbey P. August 14, 2018

    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…?

  • Absolutely amazing!

    Patricia H. April 24, 2018

    It’s perfect, light weight, moisture with spy, and non greasy, mattifying. Leaves beautiful glow! Love, love it!!!

  • My favorite daily moisturizer

    Andrea S. April 18, 2018

    I love this moisturizer. It’s hydrating but also light while providing SPF protection – a perfect combination!

  • Excellent SPF Moisturizer!

    Shayna P. April 06, 2018

    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

    Julia Z. February 23, 2018

    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.

    • From Follain:

      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!

  • Great!

    Rae H. December 07, 2017

    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!

  • Love it!

    Amy V. October 03, 2017

    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

    Alexandria G. October 02, 2017

    Would love it even more if the packaging wasn’t plastic

  • Never Been More Happy with an SPF

    Laura B. September 29, 2017

    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

    Ml September 28, 2017

    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!

  • unscented sunscreen

    Joel H. July 30, 2017

    good product, but am not a huge fan of the “unscented scent” compared to some of their other products

  • Update!

    Jg August 09, 2016

    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!
    Thanks again!

  • finally a sunscreen with NO SMELL!

    Catherine July 31, 2016

    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.

  • Disappointing

    Jg July 30, 2016

    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.
