It’s January, and if your bank account looks anything like ours does post Christmas, you’ll know that means that funds are running a little low. But that’s not always a bad thing – in fact, it’s encouraged us to look for alternatives to some of our more expensive daily essentials, and that’s just how we stumbled upon the Aldi Lacura Q10 skincare range.
Known for producing brilliant beauty dupes that rival the results of luxe products, without the astronomical price tag, Aldi has become the saviour of thousands of beauty fans on a budget. The Q10 range is comprised of three staples that customers can’t stop raving about, particularly because they all cost less than £3.
Those who are already in on the secret say the edit is ‘as good as products costing 10 times the price’, with dozens of 5-star reviews left for the day cream, night cream and the serum from the range.
The star ingredient in each item is the antioxidant Coenzyme Q10 – also found in creams from names like Nivea, The Inkey List and Eucerin – which supports skin to help it repair and renew itself, plumping and reducing the appearance of fine lines in the process.
The day cream pairs it with hydrating hyaluronic acid, while the night cream uses avocado oil and retinol for additional overnight nourishment. The costliest product in the range (which at £2.99, is still rather reasonable), supercharges with a peptide complex that’s designed to smooth and refresh – and apparently, they all live up to their claims.
‘This is the best cream! I buy from Aldi all the time and never been disappointed,’ said one 5-star reviewer, while another agreed: ‘I have been using these creams alongside the serum and I can see and feel a noticeable difference in my skin. Will definitely be purchasing again. Highly recommend.’
‘I love this cream,’ echoed a third of the night cream formula. ‘It feels amazing on my skin, it makes it so soft and smooth. No need to buy other expensive creams, this one works just fine. Smells great too!’
With comments as glowing as these, not to mention the fact you can buy the full routine for less than £6, we’re racing to our local branch immediately. No Aldi near you? You can also order online for a delivery charge of £2.95. Talk about a January bargain.
