Whilst doing my weekly food shop at my local Aldi, I spotted these skincare beauties and I could not be more excited! For months I’ve been longing to spot some of the highly rated Lacura skincare ranges that I keep seeing bloggers rave about online – and finally I’d found some in real life stashed amongst the rice cakes, biscuits, and whatever miscellaneous items were on show on those mysterious middle aisles.
I purchased three skincare products which I have now been using for two days consistently (except the pink clay mask, as I’d use this once per week personally), I will be sharing my first impressions of the products with you.
First up I purchased the Lacura Healthy Glow Vitamin C Toner, which appears to be a perfect dupe for the Pixi Glow Tonic (the bottle even looks identical!). I’ve used the Pixi Glow Tonic in the past several times, and it is a great product for my skin – I always get excellent results. The Lacura Healthy Glow Vitamin C Tonic contains Vitamin C, Willow Bark and Turmeric extracts to brighten and boost the skin’s luminosity. Coincidentally I’ve been having a rather grotesque breakout this week – so I was in dire need of a brightening tonic that could potentially help clear my skin too. And guess what! This toner did just that. It is a gorgeous product, it smells just like a fresh, sweet satsuma and is the perfect addition to your AM and PM skincare routine. It left my skin feeling fresh, soothed and looking radiantly healthy (dried up the nasty, stubborn spots too).
The next product was a slight gamble for me, but for £3.99 I simply couldn’t resist! The Lacura Healthy Glow Rose Oil; appears to be a dupe for the Pixi Rose Oil Blend, and although I’ve never used this product I’m not a huge fan of facial oils. I’ve found in the past that they can sometimes cause further breakouts, due to my skin being naturally as greasy as a chip fat fryer. However, after reading the back of the Lacura Healthy Glow Rose Oil, and taking the advice to add a few drops to my moisturiser. I’ve now fallen in love with this facial oil.
Why I’ve never thought of this method before who knows!? But it is really working for me. The rose oil smells really holistic, and can lighten a thick moisturiser if you add a few drops. I have some stubborn dry skin on my nose which this has also helped to soothe, and it’s now gone after two days of use (until the next time it decides to return – it’s like a seasonal vegetable that pops up every so often).
..And I decided to leave the best product until last! The Lacura Pink Clay Golden Glow Multi-Mask appears to be a dupe for The Sand & Sky Original Pink Clay Mask – but the Aldi version is a tenth of the price. I have not used a pink clay mask before, but I know that Australian pink clay is known for its pore refining properties, and its ability to draw out impurities. This makes it a perfect mask for combination / acne prone skin like mine. However, the great thing about this Lacura Multi-Mask is that it also contains a brightening golden glow mask; formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, Mangosteen and Pomegranate – this mask will hydrate and enhance skins radiance. Therefore, it is recommended you apply the pink clay mask to the T-Zone, and the golden glow mask to dull areas of the face you wish to brighten.
I’ve used the mask once so far and loved it. The pink clay mask tightens on your face within 10 minutes as you’d expect and leaves pores refined, the golden glow mask gives skin a hydration boost – and I absolutely adore the fact that it’s shimmery, so pretty.
If you are lucky enough to come across these products in your local Aldi shops – snap them up before they’re gone.
