Got my hands on some yesterday after looking for it in vain for ages. It smells lovely and feels really nice and cooling on my skin.
Anyone else used it? Worth the hype?

I've been using it about a month - love it! Has been especially brilliant at soothing dry skin after some very wind blown days outdoors!

It's great on my skin but the day cream seems to make my eyes sore so I am having to use it as hand cream sad

I get stingy eyes from it too!

I haven't used the Caviar one but any Aldi cream makes my eyes stream sad.

I buy them try them then remeber why they don't work for me and they get relagated to neck cream.

I was so excited to try them, but I don't like them so gave them to MIL.

Didn't like the feel of them on my face and yes yes yes to the eye stinging! I have really sensitive skin and use either Astral, blue pot Nivea or Aveeno. I need to remember this and not vary!

I got some in my eye last night and it did sting a bit, but i usually use a separate eye cream so am hoping it won't be an ongoing problem.

I'm using it at the moment and like it. I have fairly sensitive skin and not had any problems. Had the red/silver Aldi cream in the past and wouldn't say it was any difference thouugh. I've used many high end skin creams over the years and don't think there's much to choose between these and Aldi, it's whatever suits you best

Glad it's not just me. Will maybe try again and give the eye area a wide berth

It made the skin below my eyebrows all red and scaly. It's fine on the rest of my face though and I now use a separate eye cream and it is fine. I wouldn't say it is any better than the astral I also sometimes use though.

I really like it. Not managed to find a moisturiser that suits me for ages, but this does.

No probs with eye stinging here and I wear contacts and am occasionally prone to it with products. But no, thats been fine.

I like it as its nourishing and seems to act well under make up. But it doesnt make me look especially better tbh. It doesnt give radiance or anything. So I'm a bit meh.

I honestly dont think its any different to Nivea Soft except its got spf 15.

hmm, mixed reviews! Ah well, at least it was only £6.99!
