Aldi shopper 'won't go back' to expensive skincare after finding £2.99 beauty dupes

By Jessica North

Aldi shoppers claim the supermarket's own brand skincare range has changed their minds about expensive designer beauty ranges.

The savvy shoppers say the discount brand's Lacura serums, eye creams, cleansers and even their makeup range - which starts from £2.99 is better than other expensive skincare.

Their makeup range got a special mention in the comments section of a post that gushed about the benefits of affordable beauty products.

Switching to own-brand products has made the list of almost every money-saving tips list and it applies to beauty, hair care and skincare ranges.

The difference in price can be as much as £30 and the difference in products can be minimal and sometimes the cheaper products work best for you.

The original post said: "Been using a lot of Aldi skincare/ creams/ serums and I can honestly say I love them!

"Spent a mortgage over the years buying expensive ranges and I won't anymore.

"Any ladies/gents in my phone have must-buys?

"I love the eye creams and tonics especially!"

Aldi has collagen, salicylic acid, glycolic acid and vitamin C tonics in their range that cost £3.49 each which is a fraction of the cost of other similar ranges that cost £20 for a bottle.

One of the other shoppers said: "The 4 packs of hot cloth cleansers are fantastic and have a muslin cloth included."

These cost £3.99 from Aldi, compared to big brand products that cost £27.

Another agreed and said "I’m the same! And shampoo and conditioner!"

"I use the night cream it’s fab it’s making me look 20 years younger," was said one of the users.

Laura Rejuvenate Night Cream cost £3.57 which is a huge price difference to other ant aging night creams that cost as much as £30.

This shopper has this to say: "I love the eye cream, the moisturiser, I love the primer and setting powder. I really like the hot cloth cleanser too. lol. To be fair there isn’t anything I’ve tried I haven’t like from their skincare range. X"
