BEAUTY: Lacura (Aldi) Aqua-Complete Multi-Intensive Serum

I thought it was about time I introduced you to one of my favourite products, the Lacura face serum. Lacura is Aldi'd brand of skincare and beauty products and whilst it may not be the first place that you immediately think of for amazing skincare you need to try it.
I first started using serum over a year ago when my moisturiser just wasn't enough for my really dry patches so I bought the Vitamin E serum from the Bodyshop for £10 and it was alright, then my mum bought the Lacura one and said I should give it ago and I haven't looked back since.

What Lacura Say

Lacura Aqua-Complete Multi-Intensive Serum is a light cream gel which has been developed in accordance with the latest scientific research. The special combination of ingredients includes Vitamins E and C, Shea Butter and Macadamia Nut Oil. Ocean minerals and the moisture complex with 24 hour effect help to improve skin elasticity. When used regularly the skin feels noticeably smoother and tighter. 

What I Think

This serum hands down beats the more expensive Bodyshop one it terms of price (the Lacura one is a mere £3.49 for 50ml), texture, packaging and most importantly of all the effect it has on my skin.
The Lacura serum comes in a frosted glass bottle with a pump lid whereas the Bodyshop one is in a plastic tube with a pump. This serum is a cream gel which is really lightweight yet very effective whereas the Bodyshop one is just a gel and in my opinion no where near as moisturising.
Personally I think this serum (along with a new skincare rountine) has really really helped my skin, I never really get any dry patches like I used to, obviously the occasional one does happen which is only normal but the patches aren't occuring anywhere near as often as they used to which is great. 
The true effectiveness of this serum was put to the test just last week when I came back home for Easter and I was without a bottle of it before I went shopping with my mum for some more, I noticed my skin didn't feel as soft and smooth as it does when I use this and I was really glad when I bought another bottle.
I use this twice a day before my moisturiser and it makes my skin so smooth and soft, I have combination skin and it doesn't make my face oily at all and it really fixes up the dry areas. Another huge plus is a little goes a long way so the bottle lasts for so long making it even more of a bargain.
I really can't find any fault with this serum which is why it's one of my most loved products and I seriously reccomend you all get down to your closest Aldi and buy a bottle!

    1. I suppose it isn't gender specific, for the price it's well worth a shot if you're a guy wanting to try it out. I'd give it a go!
