Rich and hydrating yet non-greasy soother / Mini size
Ursa Major Golden Hour Recovery Cream is one of those products that — improbably, impossibly — bridges the dichotomy between “rich and creamy” and “light and greaseless.” Its melt-into-skin texture was what we first noticed when we tried it. That, and the perfect, honey-like smell: a blend of neroli, sandalwood, and rose so subtle that men and women alike go nuts over it.
But don’t think there isn’t substance beneath the surface, because this botanical-packed formula boasts some serious soothers. Calendula, rose, sea buckthorn, and sandalwood reduce redness, irritation, and inflammation, and a mix of aloe, sunflower seed oil, glycerin, and meadowfoam seed oil provide multi-dimensional, quickly-absorbed moisture. Unlike run-of-the-mill soothing recovery creams, this one doesn’t just sit on your skin or leave you shiny; it simply keeps your skin perfectly calm, cool, and hydrated. (That greasy look is so 2015.)
Golden Hour is an excellent choice for sensitive skin conditions, and it’s suitable for most skin types. We think it works best on balanced to dry skins year-round, and it helps combination skin achieve equilibrium in colder, drier climates. If your skin is extra dry and thirsty, try it on top of Ursa Major’s Fortifying Face Balm.
Like all of Ursa Major’s products, it's a shockingly good value, too.
