Two makeup and fashion obsessed twins who love to give their opinion.

Aldi Pixi and Glamglow dupes

Hi Beauties, 

Jessica here with a blogpost about Aldi dupes!

As you already know I'm a sucker for good avoidable dupes, so you can imagine my delight when I found those goldmines whilst doing my weekly Aldi shop! 

The brand from Aldi is called Lacura and like other brands like Aldi, one of their selling points is they mimic the packaging of the products their duping. The two products I'm going to talk about are dupes to the well-loved Pixi Glow Tonic and Glam Glow face charcoal mud mask.

Lacura Healthy Glow vs Pixi Glow Tonic
As you can see from the images, the packaging is near identical, which is a good marketing vantage as you instantly recognise the product! The Lacura healthy glow dupe retails for £3.99 which is amazing considering the Pixi tonic costs £18 and for both of them you’re paying for 250ml! Not only that, but both of them use the same amount of Glycolic Acid, with the ingredients also being so similar, it makes you wonder how much money are you paying for the brand? 

This in mind, I do love the Pixi Glow Tonic, and it’s one of very few toners that clears my skin without stripping it (I have sensitive skin). Nevertheless, you get the same tingle (off the Glycolic Acid) from the Lacura dupe, and very similar results.

Lacura Charcoal Mud Mask vs Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment
Before I delve into the packaging of this product there’s one thing I first need to talk about… the price difference. I can without a doubt say, my favourite brand for luxury face masks that show immediate results and are fun to put on is and always will be Glamglow. That being said they are quite pricey although I don’t mind paying slightly more for face masks as they last a long time. For a 50g tub of this particuoar mask, the rough retail price is around £42, with the Lacura dupe coming in at £5.99 for 50ml. The prices speak for themselves.

The box packaging is identical again however the actual tubs are different (Glamglow looking more posh and sleek). They both use similar ingredients such as clay however I can say that I didn’t notice more of a difference with these products. My skin appeared to react slightly better to the Glamglow mask, although I’m not sure it’s that’s due to certain ingredients as Glamglow claim its suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin whereas the dupe states only for normal skin – clearly my skin looks expensive skincare.

Nevertheless, these dupes are so amazing and the price is just phenomenal for how similar the products are! I know Aldi have other dupes, however it’s pot luck whether they’re in stock or not. Overall, I would recommend these dupes!

As always,
Love the Hamptons x
