What if I told you that you could have an effective day cream with panthenol, vitamin B5, hyaluronic acid, a peptide complex, Q10, soya and wheat proteins, and an SPF of 20? And if I said it had a lovely, rich texture that glides over the skin, is easily-absorbed, and makes a fantastic base for makeup? How about the fact that it comes in a luxurious glass jar and has a pleasant, clean scent?
I suppose you might be keen to try it, so when I mention that you can have this super beauty product for under £2.00*, you might think I’ve made an error somewhere. But I haven’t. Aldi’s own-brand Lacura Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Day Cream is packed with amazingly beneficial skincare ingredients at a ridiculously low price – and they don’t skimp on packaging, either.
I really rate this cream and would happily use it every day. It keeps my skin comfortable and hydrated all day, and it does not irritate my sensitive eyes. If I’d blind tested this cream, I would have guessed it was a quite expensive product, which goes to show that you don’t have to pay a fortune for proper luxury.
Effectiveness: 5 – light, comfortable, and lasts for hours.
User Experience: 4 – a light, whipped texture with a pleasant scent reminiscent of old-school skincare.
Comfort: 5 – instantly moisturises and feels great.
Repurchase: Absolutely. This isn’t an impressive product for its price – it’s an impressive product, full stop.
