The Muddy Facts: ALDI'S LACURA GETS DOWN AND DIRTY WITH DUPES



Ever bought or tried a mud mask, well apparently, they're the products to have right now, their job, to help close the pores and to give a smooth texture to the skin. Mud Masks have be hailed by online reviews as, "a saviour for acne". Four of our Facebook Group ladies took the plunge, so to speak and tested out the Aldi dupes.


At the end of September we posted that Aldi had pulled another set of great products out of the bag, by launching under their beauty range name, Lacura, the two new products both mud masks, are taking their inspiration from premium beauty products, Sand and Sky and GlamGlow, both which cost significantly more than the Aldi alternatives. So, would the Aldi products live up to the hype? With four volunteers from the Group we set about finding out how good these budget products are and whether they’d do what it says on the packaging. Barbara, Paige, Jade and Sarah took them, tested them and this is what they have to say about the mud masks.


The Pink Clay Mud Mask

The first product that we tested was the Lacura Pink Clay Mask, costing £5.99, a product which is very decidedly similar to Sand and Sky's Pink Clay Mask, which priced at £39.50, is a whole lot more than the Aldi dupe. The Aldi product claims ti detoxify, have a purifying effect on the skin, leaving it brighter. So what did Group members Paige and Barbara.


Barbara

I tested the Purifying Pink Clay Mask.



The purifying pink clay mask

It came ready with a brush for application which I thought was great. It made the mask nice & easy to apply without getting my hands ‘messy’ or ending up with the product under my nails. A big positive.





It smelt pleasant and felt nice on the skin, no stickiness. Almost as soon as I’d finished applying it I could feel it beginning to tighten- to the point where it became challenging to smile for the camera!


I allowed it to work for 10 minutes, as directed & it then rinsed off well with warm water. It didn’t run into my eyes or become slimy.


After use my skin felt lovely and soft with a very smooth texture. There was no greasiness to my nose after use which is a problem area for my skin, usually even after cleansing. I’m really pleased with the results & how my pores seem smaller after only one use.


I’ll definitely be using the Pink Clay Mud Mask again and on a regular basis and I would recommend it. I was amazed to discover the price when I looked it up as it felt like a premium product worth much more - even my husband was keen to give it a try!



Jade


I found the mask quite watery compared to other face masks I have used in the past. I thought it smelt really nice, really minty (my dog tried licking it off my face) after washing it off my skin felt really clean and smooth. I would use this again and would recommend it.





The second product that Aldi released at the end of September was their budget equivalent to the GlamGlow’s £42 mud mask, which they’ve called Charcoal Clearing Mud Mask and like the Pink Clay product is priced at £5.99. The Charcoal Cleariing mask uses, charcoal powder and clay with extracts of coconut, bamboo and eucalyptus oil, the aim is to refine skin texture, absorb excess sebum oils and helps to balance problem prone skin, remove dead skin cells, and be pore minimising, whilst gently exfoliating. How did Jade and Sarah feel about this product.

Paige

I found the mask to be of the right consistency. I love that it comes with a brush to apply it with saves getting your hands messy which I find with other facemasks. Once applied it made my face feel cool and refreshing. Overall, I enjoyed this product and found that it made my skin super soft I would recommend it and would buy again!

Sarah

First pic when first applied went and relaxed in bath for 10 mins see second pic as I applied it, it was nice and smooth, I’d expected it to be bitty, but wasn’t and it smells nice. When I put applied it, my face tingled a little and then started to dry, the mask pulled my face tight, it felt like I’d had a free face lift, while it was working its magic, I (some power needed on my face)


Once the time was up I rinsed off with warm water; it came off very easily with no residue left on my face. My skin felt lovely and refreshed and had a nice glow (3rd pic), also felt quite soft. Can’t wait to try again






The Lacura Charcoal Mud Mask was a hit!!


First lady is Barbara, the second Jade, then Paige and finally, Sarah and not forgetting Karl!!



You've been brilliant ladies and great sports, thank you. Great reviews and we love the pics!!


After laying on a treatment table and telling a beautician all about this blog, I said that I was going to try one out, obviously laying at the hands of a beautician they know what your skin is about, I discovered that if you have sensitive skin, like mine; I have Rosacea, the worst thing you can use is a mud mask!!! So ladies if you have really dry skin or a skin condition like Rosacea, mud masks are not for you.
