Hands down, Ursa Major's Stellar Shave Cream is one of the best skincare products out there! As a natural skincare and wellness blogger, I've tried a pretty extensive list of products, and I can honestly say that finding an effective, non-toxic and nourishing shaving product has been one of my biggest challenges. Previous products I've tried were either way too waxy (and ended up ruining my razors), not 100% safe and toxin-free, or just did not work well at all... shaving already dries out your skin, so using a product that doesn't nourish and hydrate, (sans synthetics), makes it even more uncomfortable and irritating on your skin.
The Stellar Shave Cream was actually originally formulated as a mens' product... the company soon discovered that the chicks loved it just as much! This super rich, nourishing and non-lathering shave cream is ideal for pretty much every skin type. I have incredibly dry, sensitive skin, so I feel beyond confident recommending it to both my male and female clients. Note to the dudes: this cream is not intended to be used with a lathering brush.
I personally love this cream because it has a fantastic consistency that enables you to achieve a more comfortable, close, nick-free shave while simultaneously soothing and hydrating your skin; no matter what area you're tending to. Your skin will feel soft, smooth, refreshed and balanced!
I also love the smell of it. Even though it was initially created for men, the smell isn't overpowering or too masculine whatsoever. The aroma is a unique, refreshing blend of Ginger, Grapefruit, Vetiver, and Bergamot, that will leave your skin with a subtle, fresh scent.
Ursa Major never uses any petrochemicals, sulfates, parabens, synthetic fragrance or color, glycols, silicones or PEGs. They use the highest-grade natural ingredients (98.6% natural, 51% organic), and sourced from family-owned, sustainable growers as often as possible.
Key Ingredients Include: Aloe, Sunflower Seed, Willow Bark Extract, Oat Protein, Shea, Birch Sap, Sea Fennel
I really love UM's Stellar Shave Cream, and would absolutely recommend it to any of my clients. Something else I love about Ursa Major is their collection of Travel Size Products. They're obviously perfect for traveling, but they're also great if you're looking to try and few different items, but not ready to invest in a full size version.
