Ursa Major Bright & Easy 3-Minute Flash Mask
Natural enzymes, alpha-hydroxy acids, willow-bark extract and retinol-like alfalfa work together to slough off dead skin, prevent clogged pores and stimulate renewal without abrasion. Ursa Major 3-Minute Flash Mask is gentle enough to use several times per week.
(All natural and organic, non-toxic, cruelty free, vegan. No synthetic fragrance, colors or preservatives. Made in the USA.)
>> WHAT BLOGGERS & JOURNALISTS ARE SAYING:
“Infinitely more gentle than a harsh scrub or chemical peel, meaning there’s less of a chance of adverse reactions such as redness, irritation, or whatever type of pissed-off skin rebellion your face is prone to… gently clears congested skin and brightens dull skin… I’m fairly sensitive, and my skin loved it.” — Jacqueline Staph Jones, “All about the Ursa Major 3-Minute Flash Mask,” The Beauty Proof
“Destined to be our new favorite.” — Nylon
“A slightly off-green/blue gel with a fun bouncy texture… my nose detects a really fresh cucumber scent… I love its refreshing spa scent!… The great thing about this being a quick and gentle mask is that it can be used more often throughout the week… doesn’t dry down to a tight filmy layer. Instead, it stays moist on the skin and feels wonderfully hydrating leaving my skin bouncy and plump afterward… how well does it exfoliate? For what amounts to a quick mask treatment, this stuff really does even out my skin texture leaving it smooth and bright.” — Mercy in “New from Ursa Major | Bright & Easy 3 Minute Mask,” Green by Mercy

Maya Chia The Eye Achiever Multi-Correctional Serum
The Eye Achiever Multi-Correctional Serum by Maya Chia is winning over pretty much everyone who owns eyes! It packs five macro and micro-algae extracts (sea fennel, sea lavender, wakame, astaxanthin, algae extract) plus some of the most nutrient-dense botanical oils, all in a roller stick for tug-free dermal massage. The result is a fast-absorbing, deeply moisturizing serum that’s light enough to use under makeup yet rich enough to build up for night repair.
(All natural and organic. Free of animal testing, GMOs, synthetic ingredients and gluten. Vegan. Made in the USA.)
>> WHAT INFLUENCERS ARE SAYING:
“Just a few taps of this potent eye serum — blended with micro-algae extracts and chia seed oil — will brighten the most tired of under-eyes circles.” — Sarah Kinnonen, “The 9 Best Natural Makeup and Skin-Care Products Launching This Fall,” Allure
“I’ve been using this every morning and night for the past few weeks and have noticed a smoother appearance around my eyes. More please. So hydrating and absorbs quickly too. Plus, I use this when I haven’t had enough sleep… It’s like an instant boost to the skin around the eyes with the silky serum gliding from the cooling roller ball. Love it.” — Cynthia, Green Passion Beauty
“So light and so silky! …feels so good going on the under eye area (with its cool rollerball). With a host of seriously nutrient-dense ingredients, The Eye Achiever sets out to brighten, revitalize, soften, protect and restore firmness to the under eye. Because it is so fast-absorbing, you can apply it with the rollerball, gently pat it into the skin and then, after a little bit, apply your makeup.” — Katie, The Green Product Junkie

It is SO GOOD and I’ve been having amazing luck with this… I have been loyal to my other deodorants in the past, but this one is squeezing its way in. Vapour really came out with a bangin’ product in a really innovative formulation, really convenient too. Get you some.” — Ashley Bernier, “What’s New at Integrity Botanicals?” (video)
