I swear that living in a ‘do-er upper’ gives you wrinkles. And since for the last two years I’ve had other priorities, I can’t justify spending hundreds on beauty or fashion. Nor do I really believe in many lotions and potions. However, one thing that I used to swear by was Decleor’s neroli oil under their face cream and now serums have become a huge trend.
But after a bit of research, I discovered Aldi’s beauty skin care range and how their 6.99 tubs of Caviar face creams were apparently almost identical to La Prairie (another brand I’ve always wanted to try). In fact, I’ve heard many beauticians talk about Aldi’s stuff being marvelous but have only tried their make up.
But I do wonder this a lot: If there’s so many great affordable products, why don’t big beauty bloggers ever talk about them or compare them? Have they signed an exclusivity agreement because looking for reviews was like a needle in a hay stack and I’m sure many like me need affordable. And why the need to review an excessive amount of different moisturizers week in week out?
So here’s what I picked up anyhow. I don’t do half measures when I shop for beauty things because when I do splurge (which is very rare), I want to try and find something that works well and stick with it. Very non-beauty-blogger, eh? But so far, I’m preferring the Q10 Multi Serum over the Expert serum as it sinks in to the skin far better whereas the latter feels like a syrup barrier.
Also, using the Q10 serum with the caviar day and night creams really has minimised my fine lines instantly but would like to see more long term effects over the next 4 weeks.
I also picked up an eye gel which so far feels soothing along with the Q10 and Expert’s day and night cream which may be more suited to my age range but haven’t dove in to those yet. Who can resist a bit of caviar vs La Prairie hype?
