Theres not a lot more that I really enjoy doing then browsing through other blogs and gaining inspiration (and a bit of jealousy!) Other than outfit posts, I love to read reviews on products. Quite often I will look online for reviews of a product before I go out and buy them (if only I did this every time I would probably save myself a lot of money, but hey ho!) So whilst I was out shopping today I picked up some new face creams and decided to try them out and review them on here.
Now, as I have mentioned before on another blog post, during the winter months I get terrible dry skin. I think its a mixture of the cold wind and central heating that affects my skin making it dry out so much. So whilst I was grabbing a few bits and pieces in Aldi (yes you read right!) I picked up a day and a night cream to try out. My mum has been using their face creams for quite a few years now (I often pinch some when I run out of my stuff, and have noticed they are good) and always raves over them, so I decided that today was the day I buy myself my own pots (your welcome mum!)
Firstly I tried out the day cream, I popped some onto my face and rubbed it in, left it a few minutes to really sink in, then put my makeup on top. My makeup sat well on it, with no signs of foundation slipping off because of the moisturiser, it also stayed on really well throughout the day. I also noticed that the dry spots on my face where already less visible after just using it once!
Later on, just before bed, I removed all traces of my makeup and slapped on another layer but this time of the night cream. This one is slightly heavier (like all night creams), but doesn’t feel too weighty, or greasy. It sinks in quickly just like the day cream and leaves my face feeling nicely moisturised. When I woke in the morning my face was feeling a lot less dry than it has been recently and I know this is due to this cream. I really like this moisturiser and can tell it will help my dry skin out a lot as I can already see this from just two applications!
HOWEVER, this is your one and only warning and if it happens to you its your own fault! If you get this in your eye it is super stings! Think bright pink eyes and tears rushing down your face uncontrollably!! I didn’t think to take a photo of that awful moment but I’m sure you can all image that beautiful face!
But other then that, this cream is perfect for my skin in these winter months. It hydrates but isn’t greasy or super thick and I highly recommend it to everyone, especially since it costs £1.99 a pot (no that is not a typo, it really costs just £1.99!!), so you can’t really go wrong! I am planning on doing a later update as to how it’s going with my skin after using it a few more time so look out for that (will probably be in my February favourites)
I hope this post has inspired others to either go and try out these creams for themselves, or to write their own reviews on other products. If you do try it out and write a blog post, have already tried them or have been inspired to write your own review post about a different product, please leave a comment as i’d love to see/hear what you guys think about this cream too!
