I’m always on the hunt for new budget beauty products, so when I saw that my local Aldi added new products from Lacura Face Care, I had to give them a try.
Lacura Face Care Cleansing Exfoliating Scrub
I really wasn’t sure what to expect when I picked this up at Aldi, besides a generic face scrub. The tube says it’s ‘cool and refreshing’– and it turns out they mean it. This scrub contains menthol, so the cooling sensation is very intense. I love to use this after a hard workout to help cool down and remove sweat.
I am obsessed with this scrub and have been using it almost daily since I picked it up. It contains jojoba pearls, so I feel it’s gentle enough for you to use on a daily basis and shouldn’t be too abrasive for sensitive skin. In fact, the recommended use is morning AND night.
While I do love the scrub, there is a strong scent. To me, I pick up a sweet toothpaste smell (weird, I know) from the scrub, likely because of the menthol. If you’re sensitive to smells, this could potentially be a little too strong.
Would I buy it again? Yes!
Lacura Face Care Foaming Gel Cleanser
I am a daily user of the Lacura Face Care Hydrating Facial Cleanser, so I was excited to see another cleansing option available at my Aldi.
This foaming cleanser differs from the hydrating cleanser, as it has a foaming quality (obviously) and says it’s also good for removing make-up. I’m not entirely convinced there’s a huge difference between these two as both leave my skin feeling soft and clean. I do feel like if you’re someone that wears a lot of make-up, the foaming wash may be the better pick.
The foaming cleanser has a light scent, but it is stronger than the hydrating cleanser. So again, if you’re sensitive to smells the hydrating cleanser is likely your better choice.
Would I buy it again? Maybe. I like the foaming cleanser, but I also like the hydrating cleanser. It’s a bit of a toss up for me. I’ll definitely be buying one or the other though.
