Aldi is well known for its beauty dupes by now – from Pixi’s Glow Tonic to Jo Malone’s fragrances, nothing is off limits when it comes to Aldi’s budget beauty aisle. And it’s not just the packaging – the formulas and scents are usually pretty near the real thing, too.
While we love the originals, a bargain is a bargain and when it costs a fraction of the price, we can’t say no to adding it to our collection. One such bargain is the supermarket’s dupes of The White Company’s product range.
First off, back in March this year Aldi took on the luxe brand’s super popular Seychelles range of scented bath and body products. Dubbed ‘Paradise’, there was a bath & shower gel, hand & nails cream and a hand wash, each of which featured the same bergamot, amber and vanilla notes as The White Company’s Seychelles products are scented with. And there’s no denying where the inspiration for the pared-back white packaging came from…
And now, it looks like the Aldi The White Company dupes are back – with a range of new scents and products. The Paradise bath & shower gel is available once again, but this time you can also get it as a reed diffuser to scent your whole home with.
There’s also a White Petals bath & shower gel, which has to be a dupe for The White Company’s Flowers scent, as it features the same jasmine, rose and neroli notes. Meanwhile, there’s also a Flowers reed diffuser. You’ll notice it’s using the same name as the luxe brand’s range, so this time it’s the scent that slightly differs – Aldi’s has a rose, jasmine and cedarwood scent.
Lastly, Aldi’s Winter reed diffuser is modelled on The White Company’s bestselling version by the same name – plus it has the same warming cinnamon, clove and orange scent to match. There’s also a Winter Spice bath & shower gel, something The White Company doesn’t offer in its own range.
Pricewise, you’re getting a decent saving by shopping the supermarket’s versions – Aldi’s shower gels are priced at £1.79, compared to The White Company’s £13. Meanwhile, Aldi’s diffusers are £4.99; The White Company’s cost £27.
Aldi’s bath & shower gels are exclusively dropping in stores soon, so keep an eye out on your next weekly shop. The reed diffusers however are available to order online now, plus they’ll be in stores from 25 November. Looking at the above image, it seems there should be some large candles in the same scents also launching soon. Watch this space…
These Aldi The White Company dupes are the perfect way to add a touch of luxury to your bathroom set up without splashing the cash – we won’t tell if you don’t!
