I love skin products. Well, not all skin products. But I love how we can nourish our largest organ in a healthy, sustainable way by choosing products mindfully. Ursa Major of Vermont has a beautiful, natural/cruelty-free line of skincare, and I’ve been adding the products pictured above into my routine (with fantastic results).
The Morning Mojo Bar Soap is refreshing and invigorating, yet soft enough for my eczema-prone skin. It also gently exfoliates, which is so necessary for my skin with the dry Southern California air I live in.
Their Force Field Daily Defense Lotion with SPF 18 is my absolute favorite face sunscreen. It’s incredibly lightweight. I use this every morning after cleansing and putting on oils, prior to my makeup or any extra moisturizers.
Another lovely moisturizer is the Golden Hour Recovery Cream. It's very soothing, calming, and hydrating. It’s my go-to “anti-aging” product because it also firms the skin. It smells lovely with notes of sandalwood, neroli, and a hint of rose.
My absolute favorite product of theirs is the Vitamin C Serum. It brightens, evens skin tone, firms, and lightly hydrates. It’s the perfect summer serum, and I used it all season. I was traveling (read all about it here) all summer getting very little sleep, and this serum was my rescue.
Another must-have for traveling/being on the go are the Essential Face Wipes. These remove dirt, grime, and grease so well that the wipes turn tan after using them with no makeup on! Gross, and also amazing. Be sure to hydrate after use.
