Save On Skin Care

When it comes to skin care we all want the best, so how can you save on skin care.


I absolutely crave the most expensive, undisputed world-renowned wonder products like everyone else.  However, sometimes you got to just pull in the reigns on spending, which is where I found myself last summer when I was experiencing a ‘light’ work load.


Turning to Aldi


This coincided with some of my favourite skincare products running out and my skin starting to become parched (read. dry and aged).  Without much in the way of funds I turned to Aldi (hear me out) to see if the rumours were true.  If you don’t know, Aldi is known for having low cost products that produce high quality results.  I decided to try a separate serum and day cream and the results really surprised me, in particular with the serum, which for me was stand out.


I purchased Lacura Renew Multi-Intense (Anti-Wrinkle) Serum, priced at just £2.99/50ml bottle.  The blurb: if used regularly it will help improve the facial contours and noticeably reduce the appearance of fine lines.  Skin will appear more radiant, healthier and younger.


Taking that last line above, I would absolutely say my skin appeared more radiant.  It does have a healthy shine to it when I use this product.  I’m not going to say younger, because nothing makes your skin younger.  It is what it is, but a well moisturised skin does look healthier, and we’re all simply trying to make the best of what we’ve got, right?


More blurb from the makers: The bio peptide Mimox promotes active skin relaxation and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines.  Coenzyme Q10 plays an important role in the stimulation of the skins biological functions.  Aquarich, a deep moisturising complex from black oats, with Provitamin B5 and precious Macadamia Nut Oil, moisturises the skin and helps improve the complexion.


I know my skin


I’m not a skincare professional, obviously. However I do know my own skin, very well, and it told me clearly that it loved this product.  My head was in agreement about the price and I’ve now been wearing the product for six months. Some of the time, when I use the serum I forget to layer a day cream on top, but I don’t need to head back to the bathroom because it’s given me enough moisture.  That says a lot of me.


If you find yourself needing a top up product like I did you might find this product useful.  Have you used this or any other Aldi skin care product?  If so, please share in the comments below.

    A very good friend made this purchase as a Xmas present for me – I love it. It is as you say good with or without a day cream on top but yes I would say I have noticed a difference already (thank you x)
    Been using Aldi day and night creams for years and without sounding like a show off I have had compliments on my skin before – must be doing something right so I’ll put it down to the creams. Keep up the good work Aldi I’m a definate fan.

    It was so good I had to get you one. I didn’t know if you had tried it. I think Aldi do several ranges, including a ‘premium’ serum, and I was just blown away by this, at just £2.99!

    This is great Gail . I shop in Lidl and like you use expensive facial product and have not had the nerve to try. No-one has ever said they use this so I just keep walking by but now I will try. Trish

    No, I’ve been walking past the shelf for about two years now! I think it’s worth trying and seeing for yourself, for sure. Thanks for sharing Trish xx
