Summer is Looking Bright with Ursa Major's New Vitamin C Serum

If you're looking to introduce Vitamin C into your skincare routine, Ursa Major's Vitamin C Serum is one to keep on your radar. 

For those who aren't familiar with what Vitamin C can do for your skin, keep reading. This powerhouse antioxidant helps to fight against premature aging and free radicals, and is a necessary component in the body's production of collagen. So, by introducing this active ingredient into your skincare routine, you're looking at a firmer, brighter and more even skin tone. Who doesn't want that?

First Impression:

Ursa Major's newest addition is 100% naturally-derived, toxin-free and 84.7% organic. It comes in a unisex black glass pump that I know my man wants to steal (even if he calls it "citrus syrup"). It smells incredible, like a combination of fresh-squeezed citrus and rose which boosts my mood every time I apply it.

Upon first impression, I was amazed at how lightweight it was; it absorbed so quickly and left no residue on my oil-prone skin. Depending on your skin type, it can be used as a lightweight moisturizer or layered under your favorite moisturizer or SPF. I found it worked perfectly under my French Girl Organics Creme Fraiche

The Active Ingredients:

{Vitamin C} to tone, firm and brighten skin; {Rosehip} to minimize the appearance of dark spots, scars and fine lines; {Aloe and Shea Butter} to soothe and hydrate; {Aspen Bark} to exfoliate; {Rose} to soothe and reduce any redness or inflammation and {Edelweiss} for its anti-aging properties. 

The Verdict:

After 3 days of use, my skin was visibly brighter and my sun spots and acne scars had diminished slightly. My skin also felt so much smoother. It's ability to soak into the skin meant it didn't break me out, which is a huge plus for me since even the slightest change in product makes my skin go hay-wire. One of my missions in life (other than to spread the word about conscious consumerism) is to have great, glowy skin. I'm happy to report that even after a week, this serum had put some much-needed life back into the dull, dry skin around my cheeks and chin. Just this simple, wonderful-smelling and effective addition to my skincare has already improved the quality of my skin so it's safe to say, I won't be going without it. Thanks Ursa Major, you beauty!
