Last Christmas I bought an advent calendar from Aldi. They launched a beauty one, full of skincare. Essentially, it was 23 days of serum and 1 day of moisturiser. Pretty niche.
But I do love me some serum. Plus, I have a sort of weird fascination with Aldi skincare. You have to search for it, but they have the odd product that contains all the good skincare ingredients for v. little moolah.
That is, until the beloved product vanishes. There doesn’t seem to be a permanent skincare line, things come and go. Which is half hugely irritating, half part of the challenge. I mean, who doesn’t love a bargain? We’ve all gone a bit bonkers over affordable skincare brand The Ordinary. Aldi skincare shopping is next level. A beauty treasure hunt.
I digress. So the advent calendar full of serum. It wasn’t great, for the most part, a little disappointing overall. There were however, two absolute gems. Days 6 and 24 were the big doors, and behind them two products that I thought were fab: the Lacura Cuvée Royal Luminous Serum Concentrate and the Lacura Cuvée Royal 24hr Intensive Cream Mousse.
So fab that I wanted to buy the full sizes come January. But as is the way with Aldi, they were nowhere to be found. I mourned that mousse moisturiser for quite some time.
But they are back! Both the products, on the website, in full size. And I must say, the big versions feel so luxurious. I already know that I like the product inside, but the packaging is impressive. The moisturiser even has a little spatula. Bougie.
Til next time,
