The Aldi cream I've added to my skincare routine


A bright sunny Sunday morning, 10:05am exactly I turned up at my local Aldi to a que of cars having to fight for a parking space (which is never normally the case). My friend at work had mentioned about Aldis Lacura caviar cream which was being compared to La Prairie which is sold in places like Harrods for £292 for 50ml! Us knowing Aldi it wasn't going to be near that price, and instead was asking for prices around the £7.99 mark. So, back to me setting the scene. By the time I got into Aldi all of the locals had gotten in and had all of the evening creams so I was left stretching over a crowd to get to the left overs. I managed a day cream, peel and intensive sets. This meant that my local Aldi sold out of all of their caviar products in about 15 minutes flat (but don't worry as they are back in stores on 17th December). 


Day cream

I've been using these products for weeks now and I'm happy to have tried them out but without trying out the expensive one, I can't really compare the two. However I can comment on the Lacura Caviar moisturiser and what I think. Where do I start? I've never really been bothered about what moisturiser I use, as long as it provides my skin with moisture and softens and smooths my dry patches, I'm happy. This cream is very thick and most definitely leaves my skin feeling nice and smooth. Not sure if all of the hype around this product is worth it as I've not been amazed by it. 

Cell renewal peel
The 3 minute skin re-newel peel mask is an interesting one and something I haven't really used before. You apply it straight to the skin after cleansing and leave on for three minutes before washing it off. After using this for a couple of weeks I can honestly say that my skin felt amazing! Super soft, refreshed and glowing. I don't use it too much as I wouldn't want it to irritate my overly sensitive skin but certainly one I reach for on my face mask Sunday nights. 

Will you be running out to Aldi on the 17th December to nab yourself some of these hyped up creams? They do offer a night cream and gift sets however I was too slow for those.

Have you tried these or something similar?

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
