Review: Lacura Face Care Products

The lovely people at ALDI have kindly sent me some of their face care products to test and review. I was sent the Lacura Face Care Multi-Intensive Serum and the Lacura Face Care Shimmering Day Cream. I'm always on the look out for a good nourishing face cream so was very pleased to be given the opportunity to test these out. Here is what I thought of them.

Lacura Face Care Multi-Intensive Serum
Hmmm, a serum! This was my first thought when I opened the package from ALDI. I really was not expecting a serum and I was not entirely sure about it. I always feel some serums for your face are far too slimy and leave my face feeling wet rather than moisturised. This serum however is actually quite good! It did not make my face feel wet and it did moisturise which was lovely. I liked it that it soaked into my face and left it feeling soft. ALDI describe it as a "light cream gel which has been developed in accordance with the latest scientific research." ALDI advise that it is a great supplement to their Day and Night creams and it can be used on its own or you can use it first before applying your normal day or night cream. I used it as a base and then applied the Lacura Face Care Shimmering Day Cream on top which I feel worked well and locked in more moisture.  The ingredients in this product include; Vitamins E and C, Shea Butter and Macadamia Nut Oil. This serum has also been dermatologically tested for your peace of mind. The pump action bottle was easy to use and you only need a little bit of this serum to go a long way so will last longer. More bang for your buck! You get 50ml of serum in a bottle and you can purchase from any ALDI store for £3.49.

Lacura Face Care Shimmering Day Cream
I love the smell of this cream, it is quite a fruity smell and I could sniff at it all day! I felt the smell was an added bonus to this face cream as some creams I have tried smell like old ladies which is very off putting! Anyway, this cream can be used for normal or sensitive skin and has been dermatologically tested just like the serum. You might well be wondering why it is called a 'shimmering' day cream and that's because (yes you guessed it) it has a shimmer to it. It's a lot more sparklier than I thought it would be but it is quite nice and not too overpowering. This cream has provitamin B5 to provide skin with moisture and botanical oils to support moisture retention. It is very moisturising and like the serum you only need a little drop to go a long way thus saving you pennies in the long run. ALDI recommend that this would make a lovely base for a light foundation as well so why not experiment a little. The pump action on this bottle is very easy to use and I have no problems with it at all. You get 50ml of cream in a bottle and you can purchase from any ALDI store for £1.99 which I think is a massive bargain for such a lovely cream.

So there you have it. I am now a fan of the Lacura face Care range. Some lovely products for exceptional prices and perfect for a mummy on a budget who wants to keep her skin looking good with little effort. It literally takes seconds to apply and can be done in the dark as well if need be! The shimmer day cream has a little extra sparkle more than needed but is moisturising and smells yummy.

Mummies rating - 9.5/10
