Lacura Multi Intensive Serum
Advantages: The price, makes a noticeable difference to my skin
Disadvantages: None at all for me
I have spent a small fortune over the years on face creams and various serums which promise to offer dramatic results while doing very little to actually improve the look and feel of my skin. I also have Rosacea so my skin is very sensitive to certain products so a lot of the time I have spent £50 on a moisturiser only to find that it wasn't suitable for my skin.
I discovered Lacura on a recommendation of a girlfriend. I had seen articles about it in magazines but dismissed them but when my girlfriend started raving about it to me I decided to try it out and see what all the fuss was about.
The reason I had originally dismissed the Lacura intensive serum was because it is from Aldi. Yes that right the budget supermarket and I snobbishly refused to believe that a £3.49 serum from there could possibly compete with my expensive designer branded ones.
I'm pleased to say that I was wrong and the Lacura intensive serum is just as good if not better than the majority of expensive serums that I have tried over the years as this one actually gives noticeable results.
The serum comes in a little pump action bottle and to look at it if you didn't already know you would be hard pressed to know it was so cheap to buy.
Inside the bottle the serum is a light and silky gel cream which has a lovely although strong scent to it.
The serum is absolutely gorgeous to put on my skin and it just glides on and absorbs really quickly without leaving my skin feeling or looking greasy. It also doesn't skin when it goes on my skin which is something that I have found with a lot of other serums out there.
Once on it leaves my skin feeling super soft and silky to the touch. It makes a fantastic base for make-up as foundation goes on much smoother when I am wearing this and it also seems to last a lot longer.
The ingredients listed include shea butter, vitamin C and E and Macadamia nut oil. It doesn't sound very high tech especially compared to the nano/subatomical guff that some expensive ones sprout on about.
I was using this happily for a few weeks not noticing anything particularly different about my skin other than it feeling nice and soft when othr people started complimenting me on the appearance of my skin. My girlfriend who I hadn't seen in ages asked me if I had just been for a facial when we met up for coffee as she said my skin was looking dewy and in lovely condition.
When I looked at my skin closer I did begin to notice the improvement in the texture and the general overall appearance of it. I am only in my early 30's so wrinkles aren't a huge problem for me but I do have some fine lines around my eyes and on my forehead and while they are still there I do feel as though they aren't as pronounced as they were. The biggest improvement though is in the look and feel of my skin it just feels tighter and in better condition than it did previously.
I have now switched to this as my main serum and can't imagine that I will be putting it away and trying anything else anytime soon as now that I have found something that works I plan on sticking to it. And because it is so cheap it isn't going to break the bank either.
Summary: A bargain serum from Aldi of all places
