Details
  • Daily moisturizer in serum formulation
  • Fresh herbal scent
  • Gently tackles signs of aging
Balmy outlook

This serum-style moisturizer is ideal for skin that needs a little hydration (and some TLC) but doesn’t like to be weighed down. The freshly scented formulation absorbs quickly to a matte finish and gets to work, tackling signs of aging with potent–and safe–essential oils.

Massage a half pump onto clean, dry skin on face and neck. Works well alone or as a safe sunscreen primer.

Hints:

Apply under a richer cream for multi-layered hydration.

  • Fortifying FAVE Balm

    Matthew S. May 08, 2020

    The Fortifying Face Balm is one of my favorite products and in my opinion every other facial moisturizer feels either too thick or too greasy after trying this. Smells great, spreads easily without having to use a lot, and is absorbed quickly so I can get on with my day. One of my most recommended products.

  • It's more like a serum

    Kathryn H. May 05, 2020

    I really like the Fortifying Face Balm. It is not at all greasy and almost immediately after applying, absorbs into my skin. I use it under my moisturizer each morning and at night after I have washed my face.

  • Light, but so effective.

    Joann C. February 17, 2020

    Light, but so effective.

  • Really works. The best product I've found for hard to moisturize skin

    Carol C. December 15, 2019

    Follow the directions and you get the best results ever. Does as it says. A great skincare product line.

  • Great product

    Hannah G. November 26, 2019

    Love how lightweight this lotion is. Definitely a must have!

  • Best Face Balm

    Joan S. October 31, 2019

    I’ve tried many different brands of facial moisturizers and Ursa Major’s Fortifying Face Balm is hands-down the best I’ve used. It’s not greasy, keeps my skin moisturized, and a little goes a long way. Best of all it’s cruelty-free.

  • Awesome natural moisturizer.

    William L. October 30, 2019

    Use it everyday after a shower, and lightly at bedtime.

  • great!

    Liz December 07, 2018

    This face lotion is the best natural one I’ve tried thus far and I will definitely purchase again but I was wondering if there was a responsible way to dispose of the empty container? I’m attempting to be zero waste and Ursa Major is a brand I don’t want to skip into that transition

  • Very impressed

    Martha M. November 04, 2018

    I am very impressed with the Face Balm. It absorbs quickly and smells amazing. I use a full pump on my dry skin and it gives me a non-sticky, firm finish. The samples that were included with my order were generously sized, and the Golden Hour Recovery Cream will probably be my next purchase! (and there will be future purchases)!

  • Love How It Drys

    Adele I. October 13, 2018

    I absolutely love this moisturizer! It feels so soothing going on, a little goes a long way, and it doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy! I don’t ever want to go back to the thick moisturizers I’ve always used before discovering this product!

    Chad T. August 19, 2020

    Excellent moisturizer after a shower. It really feels soothing and vitamin rich and soaks into my skin well. Hydrating and smooth and crisp feeling afterward. I’ve definitely noticed a difference in my skin appearance since finding this brand.

  • Best Face Lotion

    The face balm is incredibly light and hydrating, it’s the best face lotion I’ve ever used and don’t think I could ever switch!

    Makes my cheek skin relax after masking up so much, too.

  • Love this balm!

    Caitlin D. June 18, 2020

    My favorite product to use year round- great to help with windburn after a day of skiing, and great in the summer when I accidentally get *too much* sun! It’s cooling, but not sticky! Love the smell, have recommended to a few friends!

    Edythe B. January 24, 2021

    I love this product, from it’s light, herbal scent, to its absorbability, to how it nice it feels on my skin. I normally use it under a moisturizer, but on occasion wear it as a light moisturize by itself. Great product!

  • Clean product but not soothing

    Joseph H. January 10, 2021

    I prefer moisturizers that feel soothing and hydrating. That is not how the fortifying face balm felt to me, unfortunately. It also made me feel like it wasn’t fully hydrating my face so I felt like I needed to use more than should be necessary. Very clean product though!

  • At age 44, I still

    Courtney S. January 10, 2021

    At age 44, I still had yet to find my products. I have sensitive, acne-prone, dry skin. The Ursa Major face balm is now it for me…the scent wakes me up and it is perfectly mositurizing. Glides over my skin and doesn’t clog my pores. IN LOVE.

  • Very excited to start using

    Maureen S. December 30, 2020

    Very excited to start using the product.

    Anne F. August 27, 2020

    Love love love – light and smells amaze !!!

  • My holy grail

    Hannah C. June 27, 2021

    I love this balm so much! I use it year round for days when I don’t need a lot of moisture (if I’ll be outside in the cold I use Golden Hour.). You do not need to use a lot of product to get good coverage on your face, and it is so light going on, which is important to me as someone with combination skin. I also appreciate how light it is because I live in a hot and humid place, and the balm doesn’t feel like it’s just sitting on my skin all summer. Finally, I love how fresh it smells. I will continue to use this as my daily moisturizer as long as UM makes it.

  • Excellent Product

    Michael W. June 01, 2021

    This is a very handy spray bottle that provides a spritz of very soothing skin tonic. It is not at all greasy and dries quickly, making my skin feel smooth and healthy. The scent is light and very pleasant. Can be used between showers or any time that calls for a refreshing, rejuvenating tonic.
    Would highly recommend!

    This is my go-to every day moisturizer. The scent is lovely and light, and the moisture is very lightweight and doesn’t look greasy. I supplement with a really intense night cream occasionally but i live in a very dry climate and this is awesome for most of the time.

  • Great texture and finish

    Jay H. February 21, 2021

    Big winner here. This was recommended by a friend and how i was introduced to the Ursa Major brand. The texture of this face lotion is very unique – to meet it feels like a hybrid between lotion and serum, which I love, because it spreads very easily and fully. There is no shine. I use it morning and before bed.

  • Super Satisfied Customer!

    Loren C. February 19, 2021

    I love this product! I have used it for over ten years. I have lived in humid and dry climates and it keeps up just fine. It’s a Major was advertised in GQ magazine all those years ago and that’s what caused me to buy it. I’m glad they did! Great way to start the day.

  • not sure what it does,

    Guest February 14, 2021

    not sure what it does, but it does it well and I use it daily, if not, my skin is just not the same. The scent is slightly medicinal in a good way and the finish is divine!!

  • My face is pretty happy about it

    Jean B. October 03, 2021

    I’ve been using the Fortifying Face Balm for a couple of weeks now, and my face is pretty happy about it. My skin is calm and smooth; flakes and irritation have gone. At first I was concerned that the balm didn’t feel heavy enough to really moisturize, but that’s the point! Now my skin can breathe, and it doesn’t feel tight or dry — it’s wonderfully comfortable all day. And the scent of the balm is lovely, it comes on a bit strong at first, but I like it, and it disappears as the liquid absorbs into my skin. This is now my go-to moisturizer, and I’m going to try other products to see if they’re as beautifully made and delightfully effective as this one. Thanks, Ursa Major!

    Nancy W. October 02, 2021

  • Only facial moisturizer I've found

    Marissa M. September 14, 2021

    Only facial moisturizer I’ve found that really moisturizes with out feeling heavy or greasy. It hasn’t broke me out which is always my initial fear when trying any new product on my face. I like the pump for application I feel that it dispenses the perfect amount of product needed at a time. Overall I am very pleased with this product and interested on trying more products from this brand 🙂

    Kathleen S. October 16, 2021

    This is a nice lightweight product. It absorbs quickly and I think I can see an improvement in my skin within the first few weeks. The only (not negative) thing for me is the odor is a little different. It’s kind of piney and not something I would expect for my face, but I am getting used to it. They sent a sample of the rye cream with us fabulous!!! And I will be ordering that next.

  • Great smell and texture.

    Vanessa R. October 16, 2021

  • Great summer lotion

    Cami December 07, 2020

    With Aloe as the first ingredient, it is a great summer product! It is very light weight and thin but hydrating, that being said, it might not be everyones favorite. I did not experience any breakouts or negative reactions will definetly buy again in the warmer months!

  • Do Not

    Fabiana September 06, 2020

    I have combination skin, prone to blemishes and I’ve been using this product consistently for almost three months, along with the Fantastic Face Wash, and if anything, my skin texture and blemishes worsened. The consistency of this product is off–very watery and one entire pump is too much even for the face and neck combined. I would not recommend this product.

  • My husband loves it.

    Katie February 04, 2020

    My husband kept putting my thick nighttime/helps you sleep maternity body oil on his nose and then complained it was too “lavendery and oily.” Well, no shit. I got him this moisterizer and he loves it. Smell isn’t strong and is light enough to use whenever. His dry nose no longer has little wrinkle lines. His blemishes diminished. It’s a good, reliable, no fuss product.

    Iryna O. November 19, 2019

    Unfortunately for me, this product did not work at all and made my face itch all over so I had to wash it off. I tried it several times to make sure that it was this product that was causign the reaction. I had to exchange it for something else.

    I am currently making the switch to clean beauty and this was one of the first products I tried. I’m over the moon – it is light and fresh and the scent feels authentic and grounding. Will definitely purchase again as soon as the bottle runs out and am already looking for more products by Ursa Major!

    Nice smelling daily moisturizer. Sits well under makeup. However, I haven’t noticed great moisturizing benefits.

  • So far so good!

    Elyse G. July 30, 2019

    Trying this out as a possible replacement to Osea’s Atmosphere Protection Cream. So far so good! Like other reviews, it is a bit tacky at first but settles in well. Smells delish!

  • A thick serum texture

    Christina B. July 22, 2019

    I love the smell of this all natural face balm, it soaks right into my skin and keeps it moisturized. I have been using this one for a few weeks and it took my skin some time to get used to , but once it did it worked well. I like it more for a nighttime serum , in the hot months of California it’s too oily for daytime use for me . Very happy with this product !

  • Hello Hydration

    Jodi J. June 14, 2019

    At first I wasn’t quite sure about this product because of the consistency. It’s a lot thinner than what I’m used to, but it smells amazing and it’s very hydrating. I’ve also noticed a difference in the overall health of my skin. I will definitely repurchase!

  • So far, so good!

    Tamara S. May 26, 2019

    Been using with cleanser for just about a week and both are working well. No complaints!

  • Great product

    Kaitlin B. April 15, 2019

    I originally tried the sample size and then ordered the full-size product. It is a light moisturizer that always leaves my face feeling smooth and hydrated without feeling greasy or oily. It has a nice light scent. I have experienced skin redness I feel that this moisturizer has helped significantly to give me an even skin tone!

  • My go-to summer moisturizer

    Rachel March 28, 2019

    I’ve discovered that this is my ideal summer moisturizer. I purchased a bottle last September, and it felt great on my skin. But by mid-October, it was becoming clear that it just wasn’t moisturizing enough for the dry, fall weather we were having. I switched to Ursa Major’s Golden Hour for the winter months, and that kept my skin nice and plump through the dryest winter days. I can’t wait to break open my Fortifying Face Balm for summer again!

  • love this

    Ashley March 08, 2019

    So I love love love this balm, it doesn’t clog my pores or cause breakouts or rashes on my face… however I feel like I use triple the amount I should be using to feel hydrated… I go through the .5 ounce bottle in only a week! I wish I could have more product for the price, but you can tell the quality is definitely there.

  • Dried out my skin

    Arian S. February 12, 2019

    I have super dry skin, and while I know this is light and shouldn’t be used alone, it was bad for me even when layered over oils and other balms. Weirdly, it actually dried up my skin and absorbed the face oil I had already put on, making my skin dryer and worse than not having anything on it at all. It was very strange. I also tested it over a different balm, using it as a first layer, etc, same effect–it was like I had put Purell on my skin–totally drying it out. I gave it 2 stars bc the ingredients are great and the brand is solid, so for the right person this could be good. Definitely not for those with very dry skin, even when using with other products.

  • Light and lovely

    Nora K. January 04, 2019

    I enjoyed this travel size of the ursa major moisturizer, but I didn’t think it was so amazing as to warrant the price of the full size. I did like the lightness of the cream and the scent was relaxing.

    This moisturizer is perfect for my red, sensitive skin. It’s hydrating, calming, and smells amazing!

  • Not my fave

    Leah K. December 21, 2018

    This wasn’t my favorite for moisturizing. The smell kind of turned me off and it sort of felt like a film was left on and if I rubbed my face it would come off kind of like I was dirty. I also have more of a dry complexion / oily in the t zone, but I think this wasn’t helping to moisturize. I switched to the recovery cream and hoping that’ll be a little more moisturizing.

  • Drying

    Stephanie C. December 01, 2018

    Julie B. September 30, 2018

    Not only does it smell great, but a little goes a long way and my skin looks and feels great! No greasy afterglow and I love that it is dispensed in a pump. Less waste, thanks Follain for reviewing these products for us!

  • Good moisturizer

    Kelly J. September 28, 2018

    I’m currently using the sample size of this product. I like the smell and smoothness of it, but at times my skin will feel a little sticky after application. After a couple minutes the stickiness goes away. It hydrates my skin really well though, so I can see myself using it again. If it had SPF in it, that would make it a better daytime product.

  • I love this moisturizer!

    Paige S. September 24, 2018

    I was so impressed with my sample size moisturizer that I was sent in my essentials kit that I knew I had to buy a full size! I love the way this moisturizer feels on my face and it is very calming for my redness and dry skin! I will be ordering more when I run out!

  • Light & Smells amazing!

    Alexandra O. September 23, 2018

    I bought a sample kit first before buying the regular bottle and I love this face balm! It’s different than any other moisturizer I’ve owned and I think that’s why they call it face “balm”. It’s got almost a sticky texture when you apply to your skin but not like really sticky, it’s just not like greasy or oily like a lot of other lotions can be sometimes. I really love the smell for one, I always look forward to my skin routine now. As for the moisturizing part, I think it’s a great product. Especially for the morning! I think I could find a night time moisturizer that’s a little creamier or thicker for some extra TLC during sleep. But this is absolutely perfect for me because during the day, my makeup goes over nicely since the balm just soaks entirely into my skin. It’s so light and I feel so fresh with this. 10/10 I love love love it! (:

  • Moisturizing without being oily!

    Catherine V. September 23, 2018

    All moisturizers I’ve used in the past have made my skin so oily and greasy until this one! It nourishes my skin and hydrates it, without making my skin one bit oily. It absorbs into my skin and makes it look amazing!

  • Daily Moisturizer

    Gwen H. September 14, 2018

    I thought I would use this during the day, but I actually prefer Ursa’s Golden Hour Recovery Cream both day and night. My skin tends to be dry, so the cream is not too heavy.

  • Simple, Effective, Love it!

    Hannah P. September 11, 2018

    I love this balm. It’s perfect for the summer when I don’t need quite as much moisture during the day time. I apply this in the morning only after my toner and I feel moisturized throughout the day without getting too oily. The smell is fantastic and I even feel like it helps reduce any redness/inflammation I have from time to time.

  • Quenching!

    Alexa T. September 06, 2018

    A little goes a long way. Smells really good. My skin actually drinks this up (I use it after a 7 or 5 skin toner application) rather quickly and it doesn’t make me look greasy. Clean ingredients are always priority.

  • Best one out there!!

    Hallie H. September 04, 2018

    I am in love with this morstureizer! It smells so good and does the job. I would recommend this to anyone looking for animal free products that work and come at a reasonable price. You get what you pay for when buying this balm! I will most definanly be buying more in the future!! :)))

  • nice

    Mandy D. August 01, 2018

    I like this as a moisturizer, although it doesn’t do quite the job I was hoping it would. I use it after a face mist so that it goes on more easily – it’s just a bit sticky on its own. I do like how light it is, though!

    Bought this for my boyfriend 2 years ago — he hasn’t looked back. Now he uses the face wash and lotion with spf all from the same line!

  • Perfect!

    Kimberly G. May 04, 2018

    My favorite moisturizer! Since I’ve been using it I don’t even have to wear foundation when I go out. Luv luv luv

  • Good light daily moisturizer

    Rovanna G. March 09, 2018

    Although i was also expecting more from this product, it did leave my skin smooth and hydrated. It’s very light and has a nice herby clean scent to it. I wouldn’t recommend if you have very dry or flaky skin.

  • Ursa Major Face Balm

    Jacqueline M. February 21, 2018

    I LOVE this face balm. It smells so clean and fresh and you can use very little of it to moisturize your face. I was having issues with breakouts after I switched from my old product to a new one, not from Follain. My sister turned me on to Ursa Major. The Ursa Major routine, face wash, tonic and face balm has corrected that. I am back to clear skin again. Thanks to Ursa Major.

  • I live for this product

    Olivia K. January 19, 2018

    I have oily skin and am always looking for light moisture, i use this one at night and my skin is feels nice and plump in the morning, plus it smells nice, A++

  • love the product, but not enough in the bottle

    Hannah V. January 06, 2018

    Bought this twice I love it so much! But I go through it quickly, it seems like there just isn’t enough in the bottle!

  • Good stuff

    Jessica H. October 04, 2017

    So far, so good. I’ve been wearing this for about a week and am pleased. I like the smell of this moisturizer and one pump is enough for my entire face + neck. I still need to wear sunscreen under this because I live in super sunny Austin, TX. Together, the combo is a winner.

  • Best men's lotion

    Melissa S. September 28, 2017

    My fiancee now swears by this lotion and uses it night and morning. He works in a very dry environment and this has helped keep his skin moisturized without having to add too many steps to his morning routine.

  • light

    Nicole G. September 28, 2017

    light, dries quickly. has a bit of water so not the most moisturizing cream.

  • Good, not great

    Kate September 28, 2017

    I like this in the summer months for a quick shot of hydration, but it doesn’t feel like it really moisturizes. Also feels a little sticky. Overall I like it, just don’t love it.

  • Not my favorite

    Lauren R. September 28, 2017

    Because this is a “balm” not a moisturizer – it goes on more like a serum. Didn’t feel like it locked in moisture as well as my typical face creams. Great if you want something very light or as an alternative to face lotion.

    • From Follain:

      Hi Lauren, yes, this is for those days when you need something super lightweight! Give the Ursa Major Golden Hour Recovery Cream a try for the hydration you are looking for!

  • A nice intro to clean beauty

    Nia July 29, 2017

    I bought this for my husband to begin switching out his conventional products and also to add a moisturizer to his daily routine- at 35, I decided it was time he started taking better care of his skin! A bar of soap and no moistrizing just won’t cut it for much longer! He loves how quickly this absorbs and how soft his face feels. The scent is also wonderful. I have used this as well and find it wonderful and lightweight- great for daytime use or during the summer when you need something light.

  • A must for your daily regime!

    Kimberly M. August 14, 2016

    Was first given a sample at a trade show and I was hooked. I’ve been using this in my daily skin regime for years! Lightweight and a fresh clean scent. I love the travel size to fit in my small medicine cabinet and take with me as I travel often. Pro tip: mix 2 pumps of the face balm with 3 drops of Indie Lee Squalane Oil.

  • get this for the guys in your life!

    Alyse S. February 02, 2016

    My dad is a very no-nonsense guy and is totally happy using whatever is in the bargain bin at the drugstore. I gave him the travel size of this face balm along with a few other Follain goodies for Father’s Day and this was a standout. It’s lightweight and smells nice so, as a long time hater of lotion, he can use this every day with no complaint. He even asked for the full-size before finishing the small bottle because he liked it so much.
