A skin cream which costs just £1.89 from Aldi, a budget supermarket, is just as good as one which costs more than £50, a survey claims.

Aldi skin cream 'as good as designer'

Extract from the Telegraph:

"Women seeking the best beauty treatments are set to clear the shelves at Aldi after its Siana Skin Kind Nourishing Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream was voted the joint best skincare product, alongside Lancome's designer night cream, which costs £51 a pot.

In a study for the Channel 4 programme How To Look Good Naked, which is hosted by fashion consultant Gok Wan, 100 women were given a blind test of a selection of popular skin creams.

Based on smell, texture and hydration, Aldi's anti-wrinkle cream was voted just as popular as the Lancome night cream, which is 27 times as expensive."

"The cream contains a retinol complex to stimulate cell growth and chemicals such as co-enzyme Q10, which helps to regenerate Vitamin E in the skin.

Last year, BBC2's Horizon programme sparked a stampede of women buying Boots' No.7 Protect and Perfect Beauty Serum by claiming the cream could actually repair damaged skin."
