Aldi Lacura Aqua Complete Serum

I imagine a lot of people would consider buying beauty products from Aldi to be a ridiculous concept to be scoffed at, well scoff away, because I am the one reaping the rewards of savvy shopping and bargain beauty hunts. I spotted this Lacura Aqua Complete Multi Intensive Serum and was immediately drawn to it's lovely fresh packaging and the fact it boasts Hyaluronic Acid in the ingredients. It reminded me of the VICHY Aqualia Thermal Serum in terms of description and with that having an RRP of £17 and this bad boy being a mere £3.49 it was a no brainer to try it. and turns out, by looking at some online reviews it's not a bad dupe!



The packaging itself is a really nice frosted glass bottle with a pump action dispenser, it distributes just the right amount to cover your face/neck/above boob area and is a pretty generous size. The serum soaks in really quickly which makes it perfect if you're like me and hate waiting ages inbetween skin care products to apply them. Almost immediately after I can apply my regular moisturiser and hop in to bed. In terms of hydration I really do like this, with using the Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Moisturiser I do find it can be quite drying after a few days, so this is great for counteracting that. It doesn't leave a residue or build up and it's definitely a so far so good on the keeping spots at bay front! 


If, like me, you find products targeting at spot prone skin can be a little too drying, then I would say try this. It's lightweight formula seems great for my complexion and adding it in to my night time skin care regime. Note that my skin tends to be dry anyway though which is the opposite of what spot and acne products are targeted at (usually being aimed at oily complexions). If you want more information about things like this terms of ingredients and information though, then don't ask me!! Haha, I've not a clue. But I highly recommend the awesome skin care advice from there 3 guru's: Pampered Prince, Man Face, and Sugarpuffish. They are my go-to bloggers when it comes to enquiring about ingredients it seems!! And if you'd like more reviews of this then I found this Make Up Alley page quite useful (I think the name has changed from Hydra complete to Aqua complete, but can't be 100% sure as I can't find any pics of the hydra one!)


For reference, the ingredients of the Vichy Aqualia Serum are: AQUA/WATER • GLYCERIN • DIMETHICONE • SERINE • ALCOHOL DENAT. • PROPYLENE GLYCOL • PEG-60 HYDROGENATED CASTOR OIL • GLYCERYL ACRYLATE/ACRYLIC ACID COPOLYMER • DIMETHICONOL • SODIUM HYALURONATE • AMMONIUM POLYACRYLDIMETHYLTAURAMIDE • DISODIUM EDTA • CAPRYLYL GLYCOL • CITRIC ACID • BIOSACCHARIDE GUM-1 • PARFUM/FRAGRANCE

  2. I used a few Aldi products in the past and really liked them! The powder, blush and lipstick have been my faves - the lipstick seems to last a long time on your lips too. This looks really good, I'll have to get myself down to Aldi soon and see what they have in :)

  9. i spotted this one by accident..and love it.. the ingredients draw my eye is glacier water (pseudoalteromonas ferment extract) which is same ingredient of all time best selling ultra facial cream from kiehl's ( £24 50ml) and L'oreal youth code. i wouldn't say those are not top of the range compare to other luxury brand. However, kiehl's advertising "Cool Kiehl’s Fact: Through Ultra Facial Cream, Kiehl’s was honored to lend support and protection from the elements to the heroic team of the “Greenland First Ascent” expedition. The six explorers completed the first-ever ascent of Greenland’s ice covered peaks on May 30th 2005." so get it girls b4 they are all sold out!!
