Are Aldi Anti-Ageing Creams Any Good?

My skin goes through whole weeks where it hates me. Dry patches, which border on oily zones and the occasional angry spot are my nemesis.

I don’t have a daily ‘must have’ moisturiser, I’m happy to mix it up but I do love using Hydraluron serum for a burst of hydration. For the past 4 weeks, I have been testing out the Lacura Expert Wrinkle Filling Day Cream & Regeneration Night Cream from Aldi. These creams have received lots of media hype and make countless anti-ageing claims but I wanted to see if the results would be visible, as the claims suggest.

Aldi Anti-ageing creams ReviewLet’s kick off with the Day Cream.

What they say: “Can help increase skin elasticity and smoothness and decrease the appearance of wrinkle depth all whilst providing upto 24 hour moisture. SPF 15″

My thoughts: This feels slightly heavy at first for a day cream but absorbs to a non-greasy finish. It provides a good base for make-up and really improved any dry patches I had, well within my 4 week test period. Impressed. As I have used this in conjunction with the night cream, I have seen a distinct improvement in the look and feel of my skin with regards to how moisturised it feels.  Cant say I’ve noticed much of a reduction in the way of wrinkles as yet.

What they say: “Helps regenerate the skin during the night, leaving it feeling soft and smooth. For the appearance of youthful-looking  radiant and luminous teint”

My thoughts: My skin drinks this lightly scented night cream up! It leaves a slightly tacky feel but I don’t mind that as I like to know there is enough to sink in as I sleep. I wake with smooth, moisturised skin (but with as many fine lines as I went to bed with). I do think this helps my skin look brighter of a morning.

These heavy glass jars don’t look out of place on my dressing table alongside some more expensive rivals. You’d also be forgiven if you thought these looked more than a bit similar to Olay Regenerist! Overall, I am really happy with both of these offerings from good old Aldi. They really know their stuff when it comes to beauty products and the price of just £3.99 each, they are a no brainer. Well worth it!

Have you tried these? What did you think?

  1. I use Simple products because they’re reasonable cheap and kind to the skin (so they say anyway!). I would never have thought to buy face creams from Aldi. I do actually do some of my grocery shopping there so I’ll look out for them. Thanks for the review!

  2. Hi there Hayley, yes I was a fan of Simple face creams too but find these much richer (which my skin likes) and they feel more luxe, which is fab for the price. Hope you enjoy them if you try :)

  3. Very comprehensive review thanks, a great read.
    I completely agree, I use the night cream and find it’s a great moisturiser but have to confess I haven’t seen much difference in my awful forehead wrinkles! Trying desperately to get them to diminish before I resort to book! !
