To Repurchase Or Not To Repurchase- Lacura CC Cream

Lacura is Aldi's beauty brand. I've only dabbled in the skincare, buying face wipes and cleansers. I've heard that their anti-ageing skincare is decent, especially for the budget price. Although, Aldi sells some beauty products on a regular basis, most of what they sell is released sporadically.

One of these releases being a CC cream. At such a low price, I figured that I had nothing to lose by trying. It comes in a small 30 ml tube that only needs to be gently squeezed to release product. It is of a BB cream consistence, light pinky flesh tone in colour, no shade options are available. Having a different idea in mind of what a CC cream was, I thought it strange not to have more colour choices. I knew CC creams were for colour correcting, but I assumed that it would have the same coverage as a BB cream. This is the only one I have tried, other brands may offer more coverage?



Anyway, back to the cream at hand, lol, I did find this cream to have a slight sunscreen type scent, however this quickly disappeared once application was finished. The CC cream smoothed over my face easily.
Would I repurchase? If this product gets released again, I'll certainly be buying! Although no imperfections were concealed, my skin appeared more even with redness and pigmentation reduced, giving me more of an even complexion. I find the Lacura CC cream to be a wonderful primer under foundation. It's a great way to prep my skin and let the foundation do its work to mask any imperfections, lol.

Sorry, didn't mean to scare you!

Lacura CC cream just seems to make my skin appear more even.

    1. Thanks lovely. There's no real colour once blended, hun, so it may ok for you. Mind you, I haven't seen it for sale at Aldi since buying it, unfortunately. I hope they release it again :)

  2. Wow Indie, I love being surprised by Aldi products - I'm still waiting for them to bring back the Mineral blush and bronzer, they're my faves. This certainly evens out your complexion beautifully and looks very natural too. By the way, you could never scare anyone hon ♥
