Most Helpful Positive Review Perfect consistency & results
I love this. It is hard to find a true all-natural serum that has the smooth/thin/wet consistency of conventional products termed "serums." Natural/green beauty ones are usually very oily. This is just hydrating and more watery. It leaves a thin/light residue behind, but it isn't sticky, in my opinion (I have sensitive/dry skin with an extra sweaty t-zone,by the way). I have freckles and red splotches, and the combination can make my skin look dull and angry, especially in summer heat. This had an immediate and noticeably brightening effect on my skin. It didn't like my freckles as some heavy vitamin C products can seem to do, but instead I swear that the freckles pop more against my face and they give me a more youthful look. The tone of my freckles (warm browny-taupe) seems to be more perfected and doesn't clash with my cheeks that seem to go from splotchy to more naturally flushed with this serum (and my UMVT balm). I don't want (or need) to use blush, but it is a more centralized and properly toned flush so my skin tones all look more radiant overall. It won't get rid of redness, but it is hydrating and works great in conjunction with their face balm that does calm redness and smooth texture more. Those two products are all my dry skin needs most mornings to stay hydrated through the day, so I don't have to use an oil-based moisturizer that can be too heavy or mess with my makeup during the hot summer.
Most Helpful Critical Review Sadly not a fan.
As much as I wanted to love this product, especially based on all the positive reviews, it was unfortunately not a match. I used the serum as the last part of my AM routine but I found the minute I perspired on my forehead at all, the serum and sweat mixed producing unpleasant results. Maybe this particular serum is just not good for anyone with oily skin. Oh, well...

I use this every AM, feels so moisturizing. Love that I can layer with other products, but sometimes I just use this stand-alone! Not oily, love this unique formulation!
Julie from Spokane, WA
This stuff is great! It's the most moisturizing and hydrating vitamin C serum I've used. It's also the first one that didn't make me instantly red or irritated. My skin was noticably brighter and more plump. This could probably double for some as a super light moisturizer, but it was a little too sticky for me on it's own. That might be due to my naturally drier skin, though, as the stickiness went away as soon as I added my moisturizer on top. It blended perfectly!

In combination with Golden Hour Recovery Cream, I've noticed a reduction in dark spots and overall my complexion is more even. I have extremely sensitive skin, and this doesn't irritate it at all.
Give it a try

Finding the right Vitamin C for your skin can be tricky. I find this serum is especially good for sensitive skin. If you've given up on Vitamin C this is the serum I would try
Refined, light, satisfying
Claire from undisclosed
A light, nutrient rich cream that feels so wonderful. Like all the Ursa Major products I've tried, this will become a permanent part of my skin care routine.
Lakha from undisclosed

Pricey but worth it
Haley from undisclosed
I got this as a serum to help prevent aging due to sun exposure and to go under my sunscreen. I love how lightweight it is and I have very sensitive skin but this did not irritate it. Love this brand and was glad I spent alittle extra on this serum.
Never received package. Not happy.

I am hooked!
Jacob from undisclosed
This product was my first from Ursa Major. I previously was using the Olehenriksen Truth Serum, but wanted to find something with natural ingredients, and found this while reading skincare reviews. Let me tell you- the reviews do not lie! I am on my second bottle, and month 5 of using it every morning. My skin looks brighter, firmer, and healthier. Not to mention, the smell is infectious! I look forward to this step in my skincare routine every morning. So much so- I came back and bought the face wash, and face balm. Ursa Major is slowly taking over my whole skincare routine, and I couldn't be happier with the results!
Finally! A Vitamin C serum that visibly works!
Jasmine from undisclosed
I bought this serum as a recommendation from a youtuber and I didn't regret it. This is the only vitamin c serum that significantly reduced the appearance of my hyperpigmentation! This is the only vitamin c serum I will use from now on. The only thing I would suggest to the company is to put on the label the percentage of vitamin c, and where the vitamin derived from.
Melissa from undisclosed
Smells great, feels great on. A little goes a long way. I had started getting some pretty hard lines on the sides of my mouth and between my eye brows. I noted after a month of using this stuff the lines are practically gone... which is so awesome. I also use their repair cream as my moisturizer and put them both on at the same time. It's been really great for my skin. I have combination to dry acne prone skin. This doesn't make me break out 🥰

I don't think that I fully understand the purpose of a Vitamin C Serum.... but before bed this is my favourite skin care step. I feel that my skin is instantly brighter and full of life(and the fresh citrus scent just puts me in a good mood).

This serum is my new favorite face product.
Tina from undisclosed
I have received so many compliments on my skin, especially being 57. I tell them that Ursa Major is the BEST :blue_heart: I use this Serum every morning and my face just glows :grin: So grateful I ran across this product by accident looking on the internet.
Good Price and Works Great
Audra from undisclosed
I am 35 years old and have sensitive/oily skin. I don't mind investing in skincare. I have used La Prairie, Cle de Peau, Skinceuticals, Vintner's Daughter, and Biologique Researche. All the brands I listed work well, but can be quite spendy. Ursa Major has changed my skincare routine. It works wonderfully (better than some listed brands), a great price and uses all natural ingredients! I now use a combination of Biologique and Ursa Major products and have found a perfect balance :). Thank you Ursa Major, never change!
In my opinion, this is a "must have"
Stephanie from undisclosed
If I were stranded on a desert island and could only bring one thing - this may be it. I look forward to smoothing this into my skin every morning after I wash my face. It smells amazing, doesn't leave any funky residue, dries quickly and gives my skin the extra boost it needs to feel and look fresh every morning.
Vitamin C gods
Katherine from undisclosed
Love this serum! I was using the true botanical vitamin C powder but switched to this and am loving it as my nightly serum under my moisturizer.
It is sort of early
Inger from undisclosed
It is sort of early to say if it has any profound effect, my skin is quite good in itself, however one is always looking for improvement. I find your product very pleasant, easy to apply, and smells wonderful. It takes time for any product to make a difference. RIA
Christie from undisclosed
I haven't even finished one full bottle of this and the dark/red spots I have from acne scarring are gone! The consistency is better than lots of other serums as well as it is thick and spreadable. And my skin has a nice glow!
Better than C E Ferulic
Grace from undisclosed
I was looking for a cheaper replacement for my beloved SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic. I came across this after trying about ten other vitamin c serums in the same price range and nothing worked like this Ursa Major one! I was hesitant because I normally use brands that are more high-end and less natural because my skin often breaks out with natural products. However, this product not only helped fade my spots and even my skin tone, but also has calmed my skin drastically. I originally bought this product as a temporary Summer serum, but after using it for a month now I will be permanently keeping it in my everyday routine.
