1. Lacura Miracle Balm
Die-hard fans of Elizabeth Arden’s original may not find the conversion easy, but there’s no doubt this is an impressive sap-like salve that soothes dry patches. Expect a thick, orange texture that helps to calm irritation, soften dry cuticles and whip brows into shape with petrolatum, salicylic acid, castor oil, corn oil and vitamin E.
2. Lacura Caviar Illumination Night Cream
Shown to improve skin hydration by 58% within four hours, it’s little wonder this cream sold 60,000 jars the first day it hit shelves. Packed with hyaluronic acid and caviar, this overnight powerhouse brings cell-renewal up to speed for a plumped up, even glow that’s noticeable almost straight away.
3. Lacura Caviar Day Cream
Another addition to Aldi’s Caviar family is their much-loved day cream. It’s rich but not greasy, and hasn’t caused breakouts, unlike other creams we’ve tried. Featuring a potent blend of soothing snow algae extract and hyaluronic acid, skin is hydrated from the get-go, with a tightening feel to boot that’s super satisfying.
4. Lacura Healthy Glow Tonic
We still love Pixi’s original for its higher quantities of glycolic acid and aloe, but for those on a budget, this still visibly brightens upon contact while exfoliating dead, unwanted skin cells. If you’re skin is hypersensitive, use just once every two weeks as fragrance ranks highly on its ingredient list, which can cause irritation. Be quick with this one – it’s frequently out of stock due to popular demand.
5. Lacura Makeup Sponges
Who doesn’t need an egg-shaped blender in their kit? These are lightweight with pointy tips to hit tiny targets while providing seamless, all-over buffing.
6. Lacura Concealer Pen
If you like full, thick coverage from a concealer, this will do the trick. Light reflecting particles help to blur and brighten the whole eye area, and thanks to the mess-free applicator, it’s great for on-the-go touch-ups too.
7. Luxury Velvety Rose Eau De Toilette
We have to say we have been pleasantly surprised at just how delicious and long-lasting Aldi’s scents are. Our favourite? It has to be this comforting rose which has earned a few nods of approval from both friends and colleagues. Strong, but never overpowering, it’s feminine, creamy and easy to wear. And at £5.99, we’re impressed with how luxe it feels.
