Ursa Major Brighten Up Serum Review

Friday, April 13, 2018

Hello! I'm back with another new-to-me product from the land of natural skin care, one that has again managed to take the place of two products: Ursa Major's Brighten Up Vitamin C Serum. Trialed on another recommendation from a lovely employee at Take Care, this particular product won my heart by not only being a pleasant smelling Vitamin C serum (a lot of them smell like vinegar or hot dogs), but the added rose hip gives it just enough moisture to act as a lovely day moisturizer under my SPF.

From the Usa Major website,

"This featherweight face serum goes deep to provide instant hydration while brightening and smoothing skin’s tone and appearance. Use alone as a lightweight moisturizer, or layer beneath your favorite daily face lotion, sunscreen or night cream for an extra dose of naturally super goodness.
  • Brightens and evens skin’s appearance and tone
  • Provides instant, featherweight hydration
  • Rich in antioxidants to help combat damage from free radicals
  • Improves the appearance of skin's firmness and elasticity
  • 100% naturally-derived and toxin-free
  • Works great for all skin types, including sensitive skin"

In my experience this light yellow creme sinks easily and rapidly into the skin, and for this oily skinned gal is enough to get her through the day. Your mileage may vary, but since I've also successfully layered this under gel moisturizers without any issues, I feel pretty safe in saying this would work for most skin types.

I can't currently point to any immediate brightening effects since this serum was replacing a different Vitamin C product that I'd run out of, but all in all I'm very pleased with it, and how it feels on my now retinol induced sensitive skin.  Would recommend!
