I was thinking that after reviewing rather pricey MAC cosmetics, I will review ALDI LACURA cosmetics.
I was very reluctant of trying them, but when I was really broke and had to "suck my proud" and I got body lotions:
1. LACURA Moisturizing Body Care, Anti ageing body lotion & LACURA Moisturizing Body Care, body lotion for dry skin.
Both body lotions are around €2. I like the most Anti ageing body lotion as it didn't leave sticky skin and it was absorbed quicker than the lotion for dry skin. Both didn't have a strong smell which I like and both also left the skin nicely moisturized.
2. LACURA SHEA BODY BUTTER
The last time I was doing my weekly grocery shopping I found shea body butter, it costs €2.99. I mean that's nothing! It has very intense smell, but it's not overpowering. Although I prefer non perfumed body lotions, this one is not that bad. If you have very dry skin body butter is what you should use. When you are buying any body lotions just check how thick it is. Move the bottle upside down and you will feel if the liquid is going down very fast, if so it's not good for the dry skin. The lighter the body lotion is the better it is for the normal skin. So, if you have normal to dry skin use lotions that consistency is slightly thicker. Any way coming back to my ALDI purchase :-) First of all what I like, is that it doesn't leave skin greasy. It absorbs really fast and lives smooth and healthy looking skin. For that money I think I prefer to buy ALDI body butter than the pricey body butter BODY SHOPS offers. I cannot see any difference, so there's no point paying so much if you can have body butter for €3. I think next time I will try coconut body butter:-)
3. LACURA LIP CARE SENSITIVE LIPSTICK
I have to admit I always been labello fan. Maybe because it's softer and when I put it on it feels like I have a lot of Vaseline on. So in my head I know my lips will be moisturized. I have to say when you put LACURA lip balm you can feel immediately that it is being absorbed into your skin and it leaves a thin layer on the lips. It immediately moisturizes them and lives your lips smooth. Another thing is that this lipstick will definitely last longer than mentioned by my labello. It also says that it gives you sun protection, it has factor 15. It also contains argan oil, and once again the price is very competitive. It comes in 3 pack. So in the scale of 1 to 10 I would give it 8.
4. CARINO PROVIVE HAIRSPRAY, NATURAL HOLD flexible styling.
For the first time hairspray I bought allows me to breath when I use it. It doesn't smell so bad as any other hairsprays I used. As it says on the bottle it gives healthy shine. It has vitamin B5 and it's non sticky. I wouldn't use it when I'm going out. You need something that will hold your hair, and this hairspray is more designed for a daily use.
Today I got myself few more LACURA items, this time from the face care range. Hope my skin will survive that test, so wish me luck. I will let you know if they are worth.
