Beauty Audit: Lacura Products

In a desperate search to find the right eye cream, I came across Lacura beauty products at an Aldi grocery store. Although very nicely packaged displaying all the great ingredients in their products, I was a little hesitant to buy anything at first simply because it was so cheap. So, for the very same reason I decided to give it a try because I figured I won't be losing out too much if I wasn't happy with the product.

I picked up a 3 pack of Lacura lip balm for $1.49 and a tube of moisturizing eye cream for $3.49.

The lip balm is simply amazing. Instantly, it hydrated my lips and kept them smooth and moisturized for hours. I then went to and compared the ingredients in Lacura's lip balm to the most expensive balms they have on their website. After a couple hours of comparing and contrasting ingredients I will probably never be able to pronounce,  I found that Lacura's lip balm shares many of the same ingredients found in Lorac's Vitamin E Stick ($16.) Including Vitamin E, bisabol- a derivative of chamomile and mineral oils.

Compare Aldi's Lacura's lip balm (3 for $1.49)  to Lorac's ($16) from Sephora

I am still in the process of testing out the eye cream, although I don't anticipate any noticeable results as far as wrinkles go since I don't really have any, I do plan on giving it a few weeks to see if there is a difference in moisture, puffy eyes, under eye brightening and perhaps a little skin tightening. So far I can say the area around my eyes definitely feel moisturized.

Lacura has a complete skin and beauty line sold only at Aldi stores and in Europe. Made in Germany, these products have been "causing up a storm" across Europe, reports Aldi. Of all of the Lacura products reviewed on, they all have a very high buy back rate. Pretty cool. Interested in trying one of these products out? Click here to find an Aldi store near you.

  1. One of local newspapers tried out all the skincare and makeup from that line that sells at Aldi and said that they were some of the best they have ever tried.
