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.
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?
