Aldi’s Caviar Illumination is without a doubt the best face cream you can get on a budget. As part of Aldi’s Lacura Skin Science Caviar Illumination range, this product has only recently been brought back to stores as part of the Aldi’s famous Special Buy promotions.
The face cream is a dupe of products like the Luxe Cream from the La Prairie Skin Caviar collection. However, it’s much more affordable at $19.99, compared to the $690 La Prairie face cream from David Jones.
But what makes these Aldi skin care products fly off the shelves so quickly? Read on and find out what all the fuss is about.
What’s The Deal With Aldi’s Caviar Face Cream?
Aldi Caviar face cream is packed with ingredients that are not only good for your skin but also protect you from the elements. The main ingredient is ‘caviar extract’, which contains a high density of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that rejuvenate the skin. Caviar extract also helps maintain the collagen and elastin in your skin, which work together to eliminate signs of aging.
The cream also contains snow algae and hyaluronic acid. Snow algae helps your skin replace damaged cells with new cells, giving it a more vibrant and illuminating look. And hyaluronic acid acts as a moisturiser, helping your skin stay hydrated and protecting it from dryness.
The day cream has SPF 15, which protects you from the sun, while the night cream has vitamins that help repair damaged skin.
Aldi’s skin care product actually rivals the quality of La Prairie while only costing a fraction of the price. On top of that, products from the Lacura range are cruelty-free and have ingredients that are completely ethically sourced.
In fact, all the products in the range have the Leaping Bunny certification. So not only do you get a cream similar to high-end products for an incredibly low price, but it’s also entirely cruelty-free!
How Do Customers Feel About Aldi’s Face Cream?
In short: a lot of people love it! In fact, some people were even willing to pay five times the retail amount to buy it from resellers on eBay. With stocks being limited, people were desperate to get their hands on the face cream.
That being said, not all customers are happy with the results of their purchase. Some reviews report bad reactions to the cream, ranging from breakouts to rashes. Of course, with the number of preservatives found in the cream, it was likely that one of these would trigger allergic reactions in some people.
Still, other customers seemed to be very happy with the product. A lot of users on Twitter have raved about how good the cream is in spite of its low price. One user posted: “Not a fancy one but Lacura day cream from Aldi is wonderful!!” Another user posted: “ALDI’s brand lacura have some mad dupes going on”. Even actress, Tricia Penrose, was very happy with the face cream. tweeting:
“So my agent @alanhamiltontv just said I’m looking good and my skin looks great. I told him it’s Aldi caviar cream cheap and cheerful”
Even experts on cosmetics are happy with the product. Beauty editors from different publications have written great things about the cream. In fact, a beauty editor from The Independent claimed that after applying the cream, her skin “feels softer and looks brighter”. It seems like Aldi’s Caviar face cream is a hit with both gurus and everyday users.
Customers Aren’t Just Raving About the Face Cream
While the Aldi face cream may be the hot topic at the moment, the rest of Aldi’s cosmetics are just as worthwhile. Two products from the Aldi Lacura range were recognised as the 2019 Product of the Year: The Lacura Skin Science Renew Expert Wrinkle Smoother and Lacura Skin Renew Expert Eye Gel. Both of these products are just as affordable as the face cream at $9.99.
The Lacura range also hosts the Skin Science Renew Serum and the Essentials Purify Exfoliating Face Wash for oily skin care. The range also includes great Aldi makeup products like the Beauty Face Primer 3 in 1 and Beauty 24hr Mascara.
If you want to try the face cream out for yourself, you’re going to have to act fast. It’s been a month since the cream was brought back to stores as a special buy promotion, and there’s no telling when it’s coming back once it’s sold out.
You can check the supermarket’s official website to get your hands on it, along with the other products in the Lacura range.
