I met the Aldi health and beauty team back in July and got to see the full range of Aldi Lacura exciting products coming up for the remainder of the year and for Christmas. We had a great chat about my skincare regime and the amount of money I spend on my products. I am a Bobbi Brown and Lancome girl and have spent a small fortune on my make up collection. But is it worth it, how much am paying for the branding? Do they really make me look younger, do they really cleanse my skin properly?
So I am doing an challenge with the Aldi Skincare range. From wed 24th Aug I am trialling Aldi products only for one month to see the impact on my skin. Do the products make my skin look younger, fresher, softer? Are these great value products equivalent to the much more expensive products. I have recorded a Youtube video to show you my skin before the challenge begins. I then show you the products and my skin afterwards. I think it looks A LOT better, take a look and see what you think.

The Expense of Make-Up
So I have never done that before and added up what I have spent on skincare and make up and that is extremely scary. £388 just on this lot…and I actually have way more than this at home. And then the Aldi skincare and make up costing £44. I am truly shocked by the difference in price here.
My thoughts on the skincare after day 1
As I said in my video I think my skin looks a lot better after day 1 application. It looks fresher, less wrinkly (HURRAH) and more glowing. The serum I love, it smells devine, I love that it comes out black which disappears!!
I am really looking forward to this challenge and understanding the difference between expensive and value branded make-up. I will be back again with another video in 2 weeks and again in 4 weeks. And please let me know if you think my skin looks better from the video in my comments below.
If you want to buy the products, you can from the Aldi website.
