My new beauty obsession this winter is the amazing Pittsburgh owned and operated skincare line, Una Biologicals. After visiting their bright little boutique in Lawrenceville and purchasing a handful of products, my skin has thanked me.
If you visit Una's Butler Street store and only buy one thing, make sure it's their Luxe Face Cream. This moisturizer is Una's best-selling product for a a good reason. The cream is made from a variety of organic oils, and after using it as a night cream for about a week, my dry winter skin was healthy and glowing. Plus, as someone who's prone to breakouts, the Luxe Face Cream doesn't clog my pores even though it's such a rich formula.
I've also really enjoyed Una's Citrus Facial Cleanser, another oil based product. After I first bought it, I kept it in the shower to wash my face, but I've found that I like it even better as a makeup remover. At night, I massage the cleanser into my skin before using a makeup wipe. It works much better than a makeup wipe alone at removing a day's worth of cosmetics and grime from your face; plus it makes your skin feel and smell luxurious.
As well as face products, Una sells body scrubs, soaps, lotions, deodorants, candles, and tea. Their staff are experts on organic skincare and are nothing short of excited to help you find the right products for your skin type. Una Biologicals is located at 4322 Butler Street, but their products can also be purchased at unabiologicals.com
