The Lacura Hot Cloth Cleanser is said to be a dupe for the fantastic Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish cleanser*, but is it just as good?
Lacura is Aldi’s skincare range. I’ve been trying their products for a good few years because they might be cheap, but they’re usually fantastic too! And Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish has been my favourite cleanser for a couple of years now, so when I heard that Aldi were selling a dupe, I practically ran to my nearest store to get my hands on some of this stuff!
The Lacura cleanser costs just under £4. Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish costs a whopping £15. With the Aldi dupe, you get 200ml, and with the Liz Earle one, you get 100ml. So, you’re paying £10 more for half as much product.
Similarities between Lacura Hot Cloth Cleanser and Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish
They both come with a muslin cloth, for starters.
The cleanser contains cocoa butter, eucalyptus oil, with extracts of chamomile, rosemary and white tea. The Liz Earle version contains rosemary, cocoa butter, chamomile and eucalyptus oil. So, the ingredients are pretty similar!
They smell almost the same. They feel almost the same. They both make your skin look beautifully radiant after you wash your face with them. They share far more similarities than they do differences.
Should you buy Lacura Hot Cloth Cleanser?
If you can find some in your local Aldi store, then definitely give it a go. You’ll probably be pleasantly surprised, and your purse’ll thank you too!
There are some downsides, though. It’s only available occasionally. So, if you’re lucky enough to get your hands on it, stock up. Buy a few tubes of this before they’re gone.
I know it’s been sold in my local Aldi on two occasions over the past few months, so whenever it’s in stock, I grab a couple to try and tide me over until next time. (I just hope they’ll have it again in the near future because I’ve almost run out!)
Aldi’s Lacura cleanser wins hands down in terms of value. But there’s something about Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish that leaves my skin slightly softer. Am I willing to spend an extra £10 or so on that? Probably not. If the Lacura version is on sale, I’ll opt for that every time. They’re too similar to sacrifice an extra tenner for.
I still love the Liz Earle cleanser, don’t get me wrong, but if there’s a cheaper version available, that’s definitely a bonus.
If you can get your hands on it, definitely give it a try!
