When Aldi first announced that it would be launching a dupe of Elizabeth Arden’s iconic Eight Hour Cream for £3.99, fans had their reservations about how it would compare.
However given the supermarket chain’s constant ability to deliver when it comes to beauty dupes, it was no surprise that it sold out in record time as soon as it dropped.
And now, just in time to save our cold-weather frazzled skin, the Lacura Miracle Cream has been restocked and should have returned to a shelf near you.
The multipurpose balm has been praised for being extremely similar to Elizabeth Arden’s hero product, which has a variety of benefits. Just like the Eight Hour Cream, Aldi’s Miracle Cream seals in moisture and is used to soothe, protect and moisturise your skin, while even boasting the ability to help heal minor burns and scrapes.
Use it on chapped lips, rough heels, dry cuticles or to reduce irritation from shaving – the possibilities are numerous and notably, affordable, as Aldi’s £3.99 50ml tube is significantly cheaper than the original £28 Elizabeth Arden offering of the same size.
What’s more, Aldi’s product has almost 100 5-star reviews on the supermarket website, with many saying it’s converted them from the original cult product.
‘Bought this and love it. Feels like a very expensive cream when using. Certainly buy again,’ said one, while another agreed: ‘Really pleased with this product so far. It smells nicer than the expensive alternative and really delivers good results. The size tube is handy for travelling, and the price is superb. Really can’t fault it.’
‘Just amazing! It’s the same as the leading brand for a fraction of the price,’ a third added. ‘Please please please keep this coming! A little tube lasts ages.’
