My favourite perk of online shopping is those little surprises packed with my order normal people call samples. This is how I discovered Ursa Major Golden Hour Recovery Cream.
Often it is hard to judge a product by the sample. Not with Ursa Major. Their samples are generous enough to get 2-3 uses out of it. If you are frugal and have gentle fingers, you can probably squeeze out a week’s worth.
The sample I got lasted me about a week, which gave me enough wears to form an educated opinion on the product. So, here it is.
Ursa Major has done all things right with its Golden Hour Recovery Cream (except the name maybe. Golden Hour is just too close to golden shower in my head...which, I guess, says more about me than anything else).
Just like all of their products Golden Hour is made with 100% natural ingredients. 81% of those are also organic. What you won’t find in Golden Hour are the commonly-used chemicals, such as sulfates, parabens, PEGs, and silicones.
Ursa Major Golden Hour features ingredients with some real superpowers:
It’s loaded with antioxidants and omega fatty acids. Its superpower is hydration. Sea Buckhorn helps your skin retain its natural hydration.
You may know this berry fruit under its other name, cassis. If you’ve tried any desert or tea featuring it, you know it is loaded with vitamin C. What you may not know is that black currant improves your skin’s elasticity and firmness.
A popular ingredient in many natural creams, calendula soothes the skin and helps cure minor cuts and irritations during shaving. Calendula has a healthy dose of carotenoids, which gives Golden Hour its yellow colour.
You may have had the seeds and the oil, which are packed with linoleic acid. Similarly to sea buckhorn, sunflower oil helps retain skin moisture.
It’s a natural antiseptic and soothes the skin, especially after shaving.
Ursa Major Golden Hour has medium thickness and absorbs quickly. It doesn’t make my combination skin oily, nor does it leave it dry in the colder months.
Golden Hour has a soft herbal smell, which lasts only while you apply it. Don’t let the yellow colour worry you - it adds no tint to your skin; just a healthy glow, which has gotten me a few compliments already.
You can get Ursa Major Golden Hour online at the company’s website.
Just like with all products featured in the Discovery of the Week (DOW) series, I haven’t been paid to write this article, nor am I affiliated in any way with the company. All opinions are my own.
