Mum uses it, and she has decent skin for a sixty year old I think.

Aldi's cream has not won any notable awards. In a non-scientific test commissioned by a Women's Own magazine, 10 women tried it for a short time and thought it felt OK. There was no opportunity to test its long-term effects - the level of active ingredients suggest that any long-term anti-aging properties will be minimal. The level of sunscreen is totally inadequate, according to dermatologist recommended levels and industry standard.

It appears to be a replica of an old Nivea formula (Q10), so not even based on the most recent innovations.

The actual test involved 2000 women testing 200 products, so only around 10 people per product. Not at all scientific, and the result says more about Women's Own readers than it does about the Aldi product.

it contains the Q10 stuff same as Nivea

" a natural active substance that can be formed by the body itself and works to improve your skins energy metabolism and aids its ability to heal itself and prevent new wrinkles from forming. A UVA/B filter provides additional protection from ageing induced by light and the damaging affects of the sun."

Sounds good, but the molecule is too big to penetrate the skin.
