Swap or not? Lacura Moisturising Face Wash review – Aldi, 99p

This post may contain affiliate links.

Updated June 2023

I have super sensitive skin and rarely try anything new for fear of a bad reaction. I wear the make-up brand Natorigin, which is both hypoallergenic and uses natural ingredients, and was using their expensive cleanser to clean my face for quite some time through fear of using anything else. But, I seemed to be having more breakouts as I got older (life is so cruel!) so I decided it was time for a change.

I was doing the weekly shop at Aldi when I came to the beauty section and decided to see what they had. The majority of the ingredients in this Lacura Face Wash are identical to the branded Simple version – but the price tag is largely different! At just 99p, I thought that this product was definitely worth a try. So how did I get on?


A new product?

I originally wrote this review based on Aldi’s face wash which looked like this at the time:

They’ve since changed the packaging to this – it says ‘New’ but personally I’ve not noticed a change in the product:


Is it good for sensitive skin?

Well, my skin is just about as sensitive as it comes, and I can’t tolerate fragrances at all. So, finding such a cheap product that is kind to skin is a blooming miracle! And, I absolutely love it. This product is soap, alcohol and mineral oil free, with no artificial perfumes or colours.

I’ve never had a reaction to the product, and I feel like my skin is really clean after using it too.  I use it every night to remove my make-up and I finally feel like I’ve got a good skin routine that works for me. I find this face wash really moisturising, and the kids use it to wash off their suncream and they love how it makes their skin feel super soft too!


So, what’s the verdict?

Well, I’ve been using Aldi face wash for years now and it’s definitely a keeper! My skin feels smooth and clean, and breakouts are a thing of the past – it might be a coincidence but I won’t stop using it now!

I think that being perfume and soap free, it’s a really good option for anyone with sensitive skin. It lathers really nicely in your fingers, and I literally use a pea-sized amount each day so it lasts for ages – despite the others pinching it when they want to as well!

I will be absolutely gutted if Aldi ever stop making it! It’s very rare to find a budget product that surpasses all expectations – thank you Aldi! 😍 I would highly recommend giving it a go – I prefer it to pricier washes / cleansers, and at 99p you’ve not got much to lose!

Let me know if you’ve tried any other of their beauty products!

  1. I will definitely be giving this a try. I bought a supposedly natural face wash from a very well known shop which actually caused my skin to ‘dry’ out. Love a lot of Alidi’s skin care range already, both for the price and results.
