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

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
