Ursa Major's Fantastic Face Wash Has Over 4,000 Rave Reviews On Birchbox--And I'm One Of Them

For a long time, I had traded in traditional facial cleanser in favor of cleansing oil. I didn’t like that tight, stretched, super dry feeling that you tend to get after washing with most cleansers.

But given the heat and humidity of summer in NYC, I started to get a bit oily and bumpy and worried all the oil I was using on my face was the cause. I’m not even sure where I got the sample size version of Ursa Major’s Fantastic Face Wash that was in my bathroom cabinet, but after a quick Google search I decided to try it out. Worth noting: women love this face wash. It currently has 4,931 reviews on and a four star rating–that’s seriously impressive.

Now that I’ve been using the face wash for a few weeks, I can totally see why it’s so popular. For starters, it smells divine. It’s not sweet or fruity, but instead refreshing and effervescent. The actual face wash itself is nice and thick and doesn’t get super sudsy, which I really like. It goes on easily and rinses off clean–there’s none of that residue that some other facial cleansers leave behind. Best of all for me, my skin isn’t starved for moisture after I use it. My face definitely feels cleans, but still feels soft and looks bright.

I’ve been alternating between cleansing with Ursa Major in the morning and cleansing oil in the evening, and my skin is in really great shape. If you’ve been looking to switch up your skincare routine, Ursa Major’s Fantastic Face Wash gets five stars from me (and thousand of other people on Birchbox, too!).
