Aldi Launches Skin Care Line Lacura

Aldi Launches Super Low-Cost Premium Skincare Line

When you think of discount supermarket chain Aldi, premium European skincare lines probably don't come to mind. Well, think again. The German-based retailer just began selling Lacura, an award winning private-label skincare line in its US stores. The Lacura collection features 16 items, including cleansers, toners, facial creams, eye creams/gels, lip balm, and facial masks. The most insane part? The products fall within the $2 to $5 range.

If you like creamy-based cleansers, the Hydrating Facial Cleanser ($3) is for you. I also tried the Hydra Complete Cream ($5), an effective lightweight moisturizer that smells like sea minerals — and it's blue. I have to admit I'm impressed with the overall quality and selection of the Lacura products, especially with ingredients like coenzyme Q10, provitamin B5, bioflavonoids, and hydrating sea minerals in the mix. To find out what my favorite items were,


My two favorite products were the Moisturizing Eye Cream ($4), which had a not-too-sticky and not-too-slippery consistency, and the Gentle Lip Care Pearl & Shine (three for $2), a balm that gave my lips a bit of a light pink sparkle. But next time I'll pass on the Hydra Complete Mask ($3), which had too much of a wet texture for my liking. All-in-all, Lacura is a very pleasant line, and for the extremely low prices, it's certainly worth trying.

I want to try the gel eye cream. My allergies are giving me the puffiest eyes in the morning!

My friend gave me one of her milk and honey lip balms and I like it. It's the same consistency as the regular w/ a honey smell and a bit of the flavor. I like them.

I saw these last time I was at Aldi, but kind of dismissed them. I never really equate Aldi with quality skin care. Thanks so much for writing about it...I'm thrilled to hear you liked it! I will definitely be picking some up next time I'm there!

I bought the eye gel and the regular lip balms and I love both! Four bucks for the eye gel, which is great for in the morning, and two bucks for three lip balms. Good deals. I wanted to try the milk&honey lip balm, but I was scared of it. The only reason I didn't get a cream or cleanser is I'm trying to "shop in my bathroom" and find things I forgot I had to use instead of buying new products.

ugh, accidentally hit enter...The moisturizer makes my skin feel so soft that I can't stop touching it. I'm anxious to try the masks and eye creams now!

My mom just bought me the Hydra Complete cream, and it is just what I have been looking for in a moisturizer! It's very lightweight, and has made my skin feel so soft that

Aldi does have some pretty good deals. I'd seen this in their flyer and wondered if it was worth a try. I didn't realize it was so inexpensive! PS I live in the South and there's one not 20 minutes away.

My hubby and I do most all of our grocery shopping at Aldi. There, I can get a cartload of food for the same price as a few items at the bigger chain grocery stores. I don't have to worry about checking prices, I just put it in the cart. I saw these beauty products the last time I was grocery shopping and was very curious. Thanks Bella for checking them out and doing a post about them!!!

I'm not sure how I feel about this. I have an Aldi close to my house, so maybe I'll stop by and check these out. I want to see if they're actually decent products.

I switched to this line two weeks ago and I LOVE it. It's just as good as the pricey stuff. I love Aldi! :) ** My only caveat is the fragrance, it's more "perfumey" than the new "fresh" fragrance’s we're used to now. It does dissipate quickly, though.
