Last month I shared my thoughts on the Keihl’s products that even after zero sleep make me feel ok to actually leave the house. I still totally stand by that review but they are so flipping expensive and using day and night I am racing through them so thought I’d try out something a little less exxy for daytime.
A friend recommended the Aldi Lacura anti-wrinkle Q10 range to me after hearing that the quantity of the active ingredients, Peptide Complex and co-enzyme Q10, is the same as some super expensive and effective creams and lets face it, at £1.99 (I repeat, £1.99!!!!!!!!) if it’s disastrous then it’s not the end of the world. I decided to try out the Lacura Renew Q10 Day Cream which as well as the anti wrinkle stuff, includes SPF 20. Bonus!
What it’s like
Quite a thick but silky/creamy texture with a light fresh slightly nivea-ish fragrance. It glides on and spreads really easily to a lovely smooth finish that absorbs super fast.
Leaves skin feeling beautifully soft with a glowy finish. Even though the instructions say to re-apply several times through the day I really don’t think you need to as my skin felt moisturised all day. Only negative I have found so far is that later on in the day my skin sometimes looks ever so slightly more oily rather than glowy but I think I can live with that for £1.99 a pot. With regards to the anti wrinkle element, I actually do think it has made a small improvement in the short time I have been using it.
Now for some pics! I again apologise for the no-makeup and unbrushed hair, I am the definition of lazy and so very rarely wear makeup in the daytime and brush my hair about once a week (there have been times when I swear my hair has tried to start dreadlocks!). I really do pity my poor husband.
