Night Cream from Aldi?



This is my first dive into the world of anti-ageing and I only really took the plunge because it cost £1.99 and I was curious about the Aldi skincare range - can something so cheap really be any good? 

Anti-ageing products are a bit difficult to review I suppose because by the time you know whether they've worked or not it's a bit too late! So I won't talk about the anti-ageing perspective and just focus on the cream itself. 

The first thing that surprised me was the packaging - I've used much more expensive moisturiser that's just come in a plastic tub, yet this one comes in a frosted glass jar, which I find so satisfying to hold! (weirdo). The cream itself is very thick and lovely to apply. It sinks into the skin fairly quickly and leaves skin feeling nice and soft. The scent maybe isn't to everyone's tastes - I quite like it, but it's a very perfumed smell that you wouldn't usually expect from a skincare product. The one thing I'm not 100% sure about yet is that it might have broken me out. My skin had been OK for a while for once, but after starting to use this I had a breakout - this might not be from this product so I will continue to use it and only stop if it happens again! 

This isn't a product I would rave about or really recommend, but for the price I don't think you can really complain! It's definitely a good one for those on a budget. 

Have you tried any products from the Aldi skincare range?

  3. I've used moisturisers from Aldi and found that they really moisturised my skin and made it really soft. I already suffer from breakouts but they didn't make them any worse for me!

    1. Fingers crossed it was just a one off - hopefully nothing to do with the moisturiser! I agree they are really thick and moisturising! x

    1. Yeah it's probably just my skin as I am prone to breakouts anyway! It is a right bargain though £1.99! Xx
