Ursa Major VT is one of my favorite clean beauty companies. This is a sponsored post- Ursa Major VT sent me their Brighten Up Vitamin C Serum. I was so excited when they reached out to me- I have been using and LOVING their Hoppin' Fresh Deodorant for awhile now, and so I was WAY excited to try their Brighten Up Vitamin C Serum!

The best thing about this brand is that they never use any petrochemicals, sulfates, parabens, synthetic fragrance or color, glycols, silicones or PEGs. They use the highest-grade natural ingredients, sourced wherever possible from family-owned, sustainable growers. Plus they are cruelty free, gluten free and vegan- so everyone can enjoy!

As far as the Vitamin C Serum goes;

First- I can pronounce and understand everything on the ingredient list. And there are six key ingredients that make this so strong. Ascorbic Acid Polypeptide- a super-stable, water-soluble form of Vitamin C that tones, firms and brightens skin. Rose Hip- which hydrates skin and minimizes the appearance of dark spots, scars and fine lines. Aloe- soothes and hydrates (duh) while promoting healthy tissue regeneration. Edelweiss- an anti-aging stem cell complex with powerful antioxidant and skin-protecting properties. Aspen Bark- a natural source of salicylic acid (g'bye acne!) which gently exfoliates and soothes inflammation. Rose- soothes inflammation, reduces redness and evens skin tone. This combination is P E R F E C T for your summer skin.

Second- you know how I am about scents... anything too strong or artificial and it is an immediate no for me. The Brighten Up Vitamin C Serum smells so fresh!

Third- honestly, to me, this formula feels more like a lightweight moisturizer than a serum. It is creamy and goes on smooth. Used post-cleansing. But I understand why it is marketed as a serum- so very concentrated with nutrients. It also works wonderfully layered under your favorite moisturizer for some added oomph. Used alone it gives the skin a really dewey look. I have been setting it/ mattefying it (specifically in the t-zone) with RMS un-powder.

Finally- I seriously recommend this product! Right before I got this I had a sunburn. My fair skin + sunburns = seriously bad. This honestly made my skin feel so soothed and it healed so well- no peeling, blistering, or dark spots. To get 20% off of your order on the Ursa Major VT site- use the code juliettelaura.
