Everyone loves a good bargain, right? When I started seeing Aldi’s own brand Lacura circling Insta’, I just had to jump on the bandwagon.
I love affordable skincare (if it works and isn’t tacky). There are so many great products for affordable prices which now rival high end products. The charcoal cleansing mud mask is very similar to the Glamglow face masks – yet at a fraction of the price. I had to grab it. It is now currently sold out on line but check your local stores to pick up the mask and the rest of the charcoal range.
After trying the range, I thought I would do a full review for you – I have wanted to try glamglow for SO long, but at £37+, it can definitely stay on the shelves. I already have so many other amazing favourite face masks (lush, body shop, garnier) that I didn’t think I would be missing out – some may disagree.
Onto the mask – the tub is 50ml, which is a decent size and hopefully won’t dry up. I have really sensitive skin and have to be careful what I put near my face, but after trying this mask, I know it’s safe for me to use. I used a good amount over the whole of my face, and I found that after applying, it made my face slightly tingle (it didn’t turn my face red after – result!). It contains eucalyptus and globulus leaf oil (another eucalyptus oil) so I gathered this is why it made my face tingle. Once the mask was dry, it was absolutely fine.
With any face mask, my trick is not to overuse. It’s proven that between 1-3 a week is good – but I only use it once a week. I find that once I’ve washed my face with a warm cloth, my face feels considerably softer and re-hydrated. The features include:
- Reduce appearance of imperfections
- Absorbs excess sebum oils (In A/W, my face becomes really dry and I thought this may make it worse, but it hasn’t)
- Balance problem prone skin
- Help to remove dead skin cells
At £5.99, it was definitely worth it. There is a whole range of the charcoal skincare – I managed to pick up the micellar water and the mud to foam cleanser, but haven’t had chance to use either yet, once I have I will definitely write another post. If you have tried anything from this range, or have found any other dupes which are worth buying, then please let me know!
