Over the years I’ve heard a bit about the cosmetics available at Aldi, but to be honest with you I have never tried them, I mean could they really stand up to the high street at such a low price? Well I was sent some a while back and it gave me the chance to really try it and put a sceptical eye (or two as my Mum also jumped at the chance to give them a whirl) on products I would have otherwise passed by.
My hair takes after me and is a fussy so and so, if it doesn’t get on with a product I soon know, with it either going lank or sticks together and looks like I’m trying, but failing to make dreadlocks.
So I was really surprised by how well this shampoo and conditioner team worked, my hair was left soft and full of life and even the frizz I often suffer from was somewhat tamed. When it came to how long it felt clean for, I easily made it through 2 days and could probably have managed a third much of the time.
My Mum also decided to try it before I took it home and her hair is about as different from mine as you can get and she didn’t want to give this duo up, saying the worked well on her hair as well.
I think both of us can see ourselves heading to Aldi to top up on both the shampoo and conditioner in the near future.
This is really a set of creams for those who want to get themselves into a routine of moisturising, that is both hydrating and smoothing but don’t want to spend a fortune (and come on who doesn’t want that).
They are both in the long run said to tighten and firm the skin, but this is something I cannot comment on. However they do leave the skin feeling soft, smoothing, calmed and hydrated, which for me makes them a win and for just £2.99 a bottle, I would definitely buy them both in future in fact I would feel like I was walking away with a pretty good bargain.
Hand cream is a must for me, I have multiple tubes all over the place, as I do get very dry skin on my hands, something which I try and keep on top of so it doesn’t get too painful.
This hand cream offers a light cream which is easily absorbed into the skin so doesn’t leave you flapping your hands about for ages before you can get on with your jobs.
I found it gave an instant boost of hydration to my hands and is just the right size to keep near my bed or on the table in the lounge, allowing for it to always be close at hand my a top up is needed.
I have been really impressed with all of these products and I definitely wouldn’t have expected such things from products available at this price or ones that come from Aldi.
I can definitely see myself heading to the local shop to stock up sometime soon, especially on the shampoo and conditioner.
Have you tried any of these products, or if you haven’t would you?
