The Best Aldi dupes ever
Aldi are just the best at taking a product from a well known brand and turning into their own version. The product looks the same, taste the same, smell the same and even have very similar packaging so here are my best Aldi dupes ever!
I cannot wait for the new 2019 Christmas range where there is tons of exciting products coming that will save you a small fortune. They have Chanel no 9 perfume, Nars eyeshadow, Charlotte Tilbury contouring and Benefit mascara. The products look the same yet cost a fraction of the price.
So here are my current six favourite products, a total dupe of the much more expensive alternative!
I have included prices as per 12th September 2018 and have compared to the prices from Tesco online on the same day.
Aussie Shampoo & Conditioner
I am a big fan of the Aussie shampoo and conditioner range and have used it for 20 years. It smells divine and makes my hair shiny and manageable. And my hair doesn’t need another wash for a good four days. The conditioner is ever so good at softening my straw dry hair. But its pricey, current price of £4 a bottle in Tesco.
Aldi have the mighty and moisture range available. It smells the same and has exactly the same effect on my hair. Tried and tested. And its costs £1.99 per bottle.
Sudocream and Vasoline
We still buy sudocream and vasoline ten years on from having our first baby. The sudocream is perfect for cuts, grazes and sunburn. And the vasoline is perfect for cracked lips. It costs just 59p a pot in Aldi! The same products are £1.50 for the Vasoline in Tesco and £2.00 for Sudocream.
Nespresso Coffee Capsules
I have a coffee pod machine and did spend the first two years buying the official branded Nespresso pods. These cost around 33p to 40p per pod. A pack of 10 costing £3.30.
I was most excited to see Aldi introducing their own version of coffee machine pods. Again I have tried and tested and they taste EXACTLY the same! They cost just £1.79 for a pack of ten.
I do love my chocolate, shhhhh. And I really love the Lindt white chocolate, caramel chocolate and the milk chocolate with sea salt, mmmmmm. But can Aldi really produce a product that tastes similar to Lindt, one of the most popular premium chocolates in the UK?
Yes its can! Check out this range of chocolate bars. And Aldi do a clever thing better than lindt, each bar contains five mini bars so you are encouraged to not eat the whole bar in one go!
The Lindt chocolate is currently priced at £1.99 with the Aldi bars priced at just £1.29.
Bombay Sapphire Gin
I love my gin and again have spent many year buying the same brand of Bombay Sapphire. A bottle of this premium gin is going to cost you £21 for 70 cl in Tesco at the moment, although rather bizarrely you can get a 1 litre bottle for £20?
The Aldi version of Topaz Blue, dupe to the tee. Same colour and shape bottle, and yes it tastes the same. Aldi Topaz Blue is £13.99 for a 70 cl bottle.
Jo Malone Candle, Room Spray, Diffuser
And finally the ultimate dupe is the Jo Malone candles, reed diffusers and room spray. Aldi are now famous for these dupes. The look and feel is the same, the smell is the same. I always have a candle burning at home and I would much rather have a £3.99 candle than the £44 Jo Malone version. WOW what a difference.
Here we also have the room spray (£2.99) and reed diffusers (£3.99) in the scent no 1 lime, basil and mandarin.
