Lacura Healthy Glow Exfoliating Toner Review


I have to admit I've never really paid attention to Aldi beauty. The German supermarket chain isn't my first port of call for my makeup and skincare needs. Lacura is Aldi's in house exclusive skincare range. On first glance the line up includes totally recognisable products! However, on further inspection these appear to be dupes for the worlds most loved skincare.

One product which really made me stand up and take note is the newly released Lacura Healthy Glow Exfoliating toner. You'll be forgiven for thinking this is Pixi Glow Tonic on first glance! It's even named as the 'Glycolic Glow Tonic' on Aldi's website. I absolutely love Pixi's Glow Tonic which is essentially a 5% glycolic acid toner which is renowned for gently exfoliating the skin, brightening the complexion and restoring its natural glow.

The Lacura Healthy Glow is just £3.99 compared to Pixi's at £18. As an avid fan I'd love to save over £14 on Aldi's version. But is it worth the save? I've been trying out the Lacura Healthy Glow Exfoliating Toner and have my thoughts here...

Lacura Healthy Glow Exfoliating Toner Review

I thought it would be worth comparing the ingredients of the two products. This is where you can really see if there is some substance rather than just similar packaging. I was really pleased to see that Lacura's toner contains no alcohol. This ingredient tends to wreck havoc on my oily combination skin type. The ingredients are really comparable.

The Lacura toner has a very light fragrance. I like to apply all over the face and neck. It dries down on the skin quite quickly and it's dry in around a minute or less. It doesn't leave any type of residue on the skin. It just leaves it feeling clean and refreshed. There is no tightness. You might find that your skin tingles slightly. I find it layers fine with other products and I usually add a hydrating gel on top and then if it's AM go for makeup with no issues.

Overall, I really like the Lacura Healthy Glow and I'm beginning to wish I'd stocked up with more from my local Aldi. It keeps my skin really clear and it controls my breakouts so well. I really hope it makes a comeback!

The Lacura Healthy Glow is currently sold out online. However, you can find it in Aldi stores nationwide for £3.99.
