When it comes to skincare dupes, no one does it better than Aldi’s Lacura Skincare. And they started 2021 with a bang, releasing one exciting product after another.
My first encounter with Lacura Skincare was the caviar range a dupe of La Prairie’s® caviar range which I loved and still use till this day. Since then, I’ve seen the brand consistently launch products to rival big luxury brands, using high quality products while somehow continuing to keep their prices low – very impressive.
What’s new …
Lacura Micellar Water & Lacura Micellar Wipes
This duo is a dupe of Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Solution Make-Up Removing Wipes and Bioderma Sensibio H2O Make-Up Removing Solution Sensitive Skin saving you almost £22 on both products. I’m a fan of Micellar Water because it’s a quick and easy way to remove makeup and skin debris when there’s no time for a full-on skincare routine. This one is dermatologically tested and great for sensitive skin which is a bonus.
I’m however wary of face wipes in general and have stopped using them for a while now because of their adverse effect on our environment. But these are biodegradable which is a relief and also means face wipes are back in my skincare routine. It costs just 89p and the Micellar Water, £1.49, a whopping 90% less than its Bioderma inspiration.
Lacura Miracle Cream & Miracle Oil
This duo couldn’t have dropped at a better time. The weather is transitioning as we move into spring and our skin always needs help when seasons change. This duo can provide that help.
Like its inspiration – the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant; the Lacura Miracle Cream is a jack of all trades when it comes to skin concerns. It’ll soothe chapped lips, fix cracked heels, and nourish dry hands, and cost you £22 less than Elizabeth Arden’s multipurpose cream. It really should be a staple in everyone’s skincare routine.
Another timely product is this Lacura Miracle Oil. Miracle because it works wonders on the face, body, and hair. And don’t forget spring is the perfect time to switch to oils because they are lighter, lock in moisture for longer to keep skin hydrated for longer and this particular miracle oil adds a new shine and radiance to your face, body, and hair without leaving an oily residue.
Lacura Ebony Rose Face Cream & Face Mask
This latest drop by Lacura skincare has got everyone excited and people in long lines hoping to grab the pair because it’s a great dupe for the ridiculously expensive Sisley-Paris Black Rose Skin Infusion Cream, £146.50 and Sisley-Paris Black Rose Cream Mask, £115.
Like the Sisley-Paris product, this Lacura Ebony Rose Face Cream is formulated with Black Rose Extract and Shea Butter, as well as Vitamin B3 and Maracuja Oil.
It feels rich and soothing on skin, and makes you want to slather it all over your body. It also absorbs very quickly into skin. The Black Rose in the cream perks up tired and fatigued skin while brightening it. Leaving the shea butter and Maracuja Oil to hydrate and restore skin. It gives skin a pampering feel and cost just £6.99
I’d recommend this Lacura Ebony Rose Face Mask for a pampering nighttime skincare routine. It’s formulated with Black Rose Extract, Pro-Vitamin B5, and Shea Butter to make skin feel smooth, soft, and plumper. With added Vitamin B3 and Avocado Oil, to help the complexion appear more youthful and moisturised. It’s like your very own beauty sleep in a jar for just £6.99. No wonder it flies off the shelves.
Lacura Healthy Glow Retinol & Acacia Collagen Serum
This serum was introduced by Lacura skincare earlier this year and I was drawn in by the ingredients. It’s not often you encounter retinol, camomile, and collagen in the same product. It’s been a staple in my winter skincare routine and I’ll continue to use it going into spring.
The retinol improves the skins’ texture and brightens skin while the collagen makes sure skin is hydrated and plump. Just remember to use an SPF moisturiser whenever you use this serum.
I wish I could tell you that all these products are available nationwide in all Aldi stores but I can’t and it isn’t as they fly off shelves faster than you can say skincare! The best advice I can give is for you to become a sleuth and have a constant eye on the Aldi website and be ready to pounce at a moment’s notice. Good luck.
