I first purchased the night cream whilst doing some shopping in Aldi, I had previously read good reviews about it, and for a mere £1.99 I thought I would give it a go. This is an Aldi own brand so is pretty much only available from there, although you can probably find it on ebay.
The night cream comes in a small glass jar, similar to most night creams and moisturisers. The jar is quite heavy with a dark blue lid, and contains 50ml of the cream. The cream itself contains retinol complex, Q10 and has anti wrinkle properties. This is for all skin types and uses the latest scientific technology to care for and to protect the complexion.
Instructions for use are similar to any face cream, you massage it gently into clean your skin.
The lid itself unscrews easily, even with my small hands and reveals a thick white cream. This has quite a strong sweet flowery smell. It's quite pleasant although a little strong for my taste.
I use a small white dollop on my finger and gently massage it in with my finger, usually I do this a few times to completely cover my face.
It sinks into my skin quite slowly, taking a couple of minutes. My skin initially feels fairly wet, and even after about 5 minutes it feels slightly greasy. I've never found this a problem, it's not uncomfortable, and I think it's possibly part of the design as the cream says it keeps moisturising through the night.
The next morning my skin is left feeling soft and moisturised. So far I've not suffered with spots or anything else as a result of using this, although I should point out my skin isn't particularly sensitive.
I have to say I'm quite impressed with this little moisturiser, it makes my skin soft and moisturised, and unlike some more expensive creams I've used hasn't brought me out in spots.
So would I recommend this? Definitely, I'm only gutted I didn't discover it earlier.
I love Lacura make-up but my experience with the skin care range hasn’t been as good. There are some ok products but nothing that makes me go wow or would make me want to go out of my way to go to Aldi and pick one up.
I bought the Q10 day cream because I had heard loads about it in magazines saying how good it was and how it outperformed expensive brands.
I was really excited to try it because it was only £1.99 and if it performed as well as all these articles said I was ready to buy a trolley full of it.
Unfortunately my experience wasn’t as positive as the ladies who wrote the articles.
The cream comes in a pot and I don’t really like that as I never think it is very hygienic and prefer pump bottles. It is quite thick and felt quite moisturising on my skin.
Unfortunately though I can’t say if this cream had any impact on the condition of my skin as I had to stop using it as it really make my skin break out so badly.
Sometimes with a really rich cream it can make me get a spot or two but this made my entire face breakout within a couple of days of using it.
I did give it another try just to make sure that it wasn’t my skin being hormonal or something but when I used the cream again the same thing happened and my skin broke out horribly all over. There must have been something in this which just didn’t agree with my skin as it very rarely behaves this way even when a cream is really rich and heavy.
At 22 I already have fine lines and this really bothers me I do not want to get to my thirties and by covered in deep wrinkles as a result towards the end of last year I started an anti aging routine and after reading about this online I decided to give it a go.
This comes on a very sturdy glass tub with a screw top cap. Somehow the glass always seems to keep the cream cold! As this is real glass as oppose to the plastic found on the Garnier Creams this actually feels a little more luxurious - not a discount supermarket beauty cream at all! This sits nicely in my makeup bag.
This is thick white cream that spreads and blends in very easily. Only a small amount is required I have been using mine now on a daily basis for 2 months and still have loads left. It has an ever so slight scent that I can't really describe. I think it is floral.
Be careful not to slather on too much as it can become hard work and you'll be there for a while!
One of my first concerns was that this may cause breakouts as it is so cheap, however it hasn't.
Have I Seen A Reduction?
Definitely! The fine lines are showing massive improvement on my forehead and somebody has actually asked me what I've been using. This didn't happen overnight it took around a month to see a real improvement however I still think this is great! I have a dimple on my upper lip and when I am not smiling a fine line would show and that is now invisible.
I also have the night cream in this brand and I am finding them the perfect combination.
Where can this be bought?
This can be bought at your local aldi and it cost me only £1.99 - this may have had some money off at the time though.
Great Wrinle Cream
A year or two ago, there was much talk in everyday womens magazines about certain beauty/face creams, that are available in the high street and are supposed to be wonderful!
Forget spending a small fortune on the designer brands, it was suggested that Boots sell a face cream containing Q10 for under £5, which was selling out as quickly as it was stocked.. then it was announced that the supermarket Aldi was also stocking the equivalent face cream.
Happily I went off to Aldi and was absolutely delighted at the prices there - I bought a range of facial creams and products.
The particular product I am reviewing is the Lacura Q10 Anti-wrinkle face cream. It is in a glass jar and has 50ml of cream - and an amazing cost of £1.99
When you read good (if not amazing!) reviews on a product and the cost is under £2 then it is great to be able to test it out without breaking the bank.
This cream is a day cream, it is light and easily absorbed - it does not leave my face feeling greasy as some creams do. The cream contains vitamins C and E and the enzyme Q10 which apparently which mimics the body's ability to protect against premature ageing
Application of this cream is the same as any other - the cream is white, it does not feel heavy or sticky, you slightly massage it in and it absorbs very quickly - possibly not instantly, but within the next minute or so.
I can't tell you that any wrinkles I have, since using the cream, have disappeared - because they haven't. But I can tell you that I have been using this cream now for a couple years, I have bought about six tubs of it and I am a big fan and at the price that Aldi charge, I am more than happy to use it liberally, over my neck and arms, as well as my face.
I am a woman in my mid (ahem!) 40's and am doing my best to keep my skin moisturised and protect it against the weather and elements.
My summary of this cream is that it comes at an absolutely fantastic price - if you research this particular brand you will see that there are many reviews online singing its praises and I personally endorse that.
