Ruth Writes is a 30-something Liverpool based blog covering mid-size fashion, pescatarian food and beauty.
Blog posts are few and far between around here at the moment whilst we still continue to live without the internet in our new house (thank god for free wifi on buses and trains) but it’s been so long since I’ve posted about beauty and I’ve really missed it. Not that I’ve bought many new products lately…
Enter Aldi. The mecca of all things amazing. Cheap food, a fantastic middle aisle filled with gorgeous homeware and all the stuff you didn’t realise you needed. I think our entire home is 90% Aldi and I’m not mad about it. But I was yet to try the beauty and skincare products until recently…
I love trying new skincare. I’m sure that nothing new if you’re a regular reader. High-end or supermarket – I’m a fan. And whilst Aldi is somewhat a dupe one-stop shop, I thought it was time to try out their skincare. Since we moved house, we’ve found our local store which I’m guessing is quite new thanks to the fab layout and huge beauty stand, so I stocked up!
Lacura Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Day Cream SPF20
I’ve been after a new everyday moisturiser for a while. Since the weather has been so lovely I’ve not been wearing a lot of make up to work, so I wanted something that would act as a primer, with an SPF but also gives my skin a drink on the daily.
And this little pot of wonder for £3 does the trick. I’ve been using it every day for about two weeks now and my skin honestly, feels amazing. It’s not too thick, even though I lather on an even dollop every morning and it smells really lovely too.
I can’t wait to pick up the night cream and start using that too!
