Hello Darlings. Confession alert: I’m totally and completely obsessed with
me my skin. I’m very pale (seriously I wear spf at night due to my extreme fear of the sun) and my super sensitive skin breaks out at the very thought of a breakout. Sometimes I wonder if any part of my life will progress past that of a 12 year old girl but I suppose the my little pony night gown I’m currently rocking isnt helping that much. Anyways, the past few years I’ve become obsessed with face lotions and have spent more money than I’d like to admit trying to find the perfect skin cream regime. And like most things in life, the best things are free (or at least, sorta free. Check out my previous blog on the best extremely inexpensive lipgloss I’ve EVER TRIED).
Enter the rich, creamy world of Lacura Face Cream. With an online cult following that rivals perhaps only the legendary status of the cats of instagram, I was DYING to try to this product as soon as I stumbled upon an amazing thread praising her wonders. Here’s where our sweet, sweet milky product gets even better: Lacura Face Care q10 Night Cream AND Day Cream retails for $3.99 at Aldi. Yes, those weird grocery stores where you bag your own stuff and the overhead lighting makes everyone looks like they are one bath salt away from zombification.
Here’s the down low on Lacura, ladies. Apply the Day Cream in the morning on clean, dry skin and wait a few minutes for it to absorb before you apply your makeup. Unlike a lot of face creams I’ve sampled, Lacura Day Cream is a very light formula that absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave the gross greasy feeling many name brand products I’ve tried tend to (I’m looking at you, Clinique Repairwear). Is there anything worse than your face feeling dirty before you even applied makeup? Uh, no. The Lacura Night Cream goes on at night (duh) after you wash off the daily wear and tear of your fabulous life and works over night with a retinol formula to help reduce fine lines and regenerates the . Basically…..IT TOTALLY AND SERIOUSLY WORKS! I’ve been using both products regularly for a week now and honestly they are the best skin cream combination I’ve ever had the pleasure of slathering on my sensitive skin. The giggle lines I’m obsessed with obsessing about have totally faded and both creams have a pleasant floral scent. Though none of the active ingredients are chemicals commonly used to fight acne, I have not had a single blemish since I started my love obsession with Lacura. In fact, my skin looks so clear I started rocking tinted moisturizer during the day time instead of foundation. Yes, you heard me right. I’m off the juice girls.
One more beauty note. I know a lot of our readers are in the younger demographic (uh, I’m like forever21, right??) but taking care of your skin at a young age BEFORE you get fine lines, wrinkles, crows feet, etc slows down the aging process. Preventive measures to protect your skin (sunscreen, washing your face twice a day, anti wrinkle creams, etc) are the best way to keep you beautiful and natural going into your um, older years without having to succumb to botox, plastic surgery or other measures you totally cannot buy for $2.99 next to a bag of cool ranch doritos. Mmm. Doritos.
I hope you have the pleasure of popping into an Aldi and trying this cream for yourself! I bought the last of it at my neighborhood Aldi’s so don’t wait- the store clerk told me they don’t order it super regularly and that it flies off the shelf!
ps- party girl pro tip: Aldi also carries a wine line called “Winking Owl” that retails for $2.69 a bottle. It’s like a the suburban version of Trader Joes famed 2 Buck Chuck and- get this- I’m like way into the Winking Owl Chardonnay and I’ve never gotten that horrible cheap wine headache the morning after. So please ladies, enjoy your lavishly inexpensive face cream and wine like the queens you are :)
