Review: Aldi Lacura Hot Cloth Cleanser vs Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser


I've always been in the mindset that when paying more for skincare, you get better results and quality. But I have been proven wrong with the Aldi Lacura Hot Cloth Cleanser! I've tried Aldi skincare before and found it a bit 'meh' then gone back to my usual routine, it was actually my mum who told me about the very similar Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser in Aldi and that I should get it as I loved the Liz Earle version. 

I do need to point out that the Aldi version is sold out online but there may be a few floating about in store still and they may bring more stock out, fingers crossed! The Aldi Lacura Hot Cloth Cleanser is £3.99 for 200ml, in comparison to the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser which is £26 for the same size, so there's quite a difference in price. But how did the Aldi version shape up against Liz Earle?


The Packaging
Pumps are my preferred way of dispensing my cleanser, but tubes aren't the worst (FYI I don't like pot cleansers - so many things can stuck in it!) The Aldi cleanser allows you to easily dispense the right amount, although I can imagine if you're a bit heavy handed and suddenly half of it is in your palm! With the Liz Earle cleanser I know two pumps are just the right amount for cleansing my face and neck and the bottle itself is very tactile too. 

Both cleansers come with muslin cloths and this is probably the biggest difference in quality between the two. You can tell that spending a bit more of your money with Liz Earle that you get a better quality muslin cloth, it's thicker, soft and generally lasts a long time. Whereas the Aldi muslin cloth isn't the best quality, it's not horrible but slightly rough on my skin!


The Ingredients
As I work in the health and beauty industry, I take an interest in the ingredients in my skincare products. Both products include the same first four ingredients, which generally make up the majority of the actual product:
- Aqua (water)
- Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride
- Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter
- Ceteryl Alcohol

After that the ingredients change between the both, however they do both include Eucalyptus, Rosemarym and Chamomile essential oils and smell exactly the same. The texture of both are very similar too, I think the Liz Earle cleanser may be slightly thicker and creamier than the Aldi one.


The Results
And this is the bit that matters! How did they fare against each other? From being the skincare snob that I am, I didn't have high expectations for the Aldi cleanser but I was pleasantly surprised. It removed my makeup effortlessly and left my skin feeling just as cleansed, soft and smooth as compared to the Liz Earle cleanser. If Aldi bring their Lacura Hot Cloth Cleanser back again, I'll definitely be picking up a tube or two to stock up but for in the meantime I'll be working with my trusty Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser!

Have you tried the Aldi Lacura Hot Cloth Cleanser or Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser before?
