Aldi Lacura aqua complete - nothing for oilier skin`?
Recently purchased a pot for normal skin It's a shame they don't go beyond normal as there's nothing for combination, or sensitive, or oily (all women are not the same!) However I'm pleasantly surprised that it works well on my combination skin (that is more veering to oily - and very oily in summer) I am sensitive and it does sting slightly when first applies, but this goes, without leaving extra redness (which I also get) I've quit moisturiser for months as they all make me look shinier However, this is great.. no oily feel or shiny look (to add to my normal shine) and even sorts out the dry random bits I get, so I might stock up Am I right in thinking that some health food shops stock or used to stock Lacura? I'm sure I remember buying a cream in tube form years ago that was for young, oily skin (i'm not young btw!) And should I try any of the others as they seem to be for dry/ ageing? e.g. the serum i keep hearing about? or would this be too pore clogging. I have quite large pores as it is and need to tone down the shine, not add to it
I'm 43 and have v fine lines but not proper wrinkles… even round the eyes i'm quite oily.. but i do wonder if i need a preventative.. i do protect skin in sun always but maybe i need more as i might not always be oily
In their offer aisles they had a day and night cream called Clear Effect which is for adult, blemish prone skin. I have bought one of each at Â£3.99 as I have skin similar to you and I'm hoping they will be as good as their other creams.
the aqua complete does not tone down the shine but doesn't add to it, which is so rare to find (there are such other decent moisturisers out there, that i've come across; some can be mattifying but actually drying). Tried all the lush ones but all add shine even the ones that say they are ok for oil. the lacura is good for putting makeup on over as it doesn't just slide off (still need powder though to finish)
