Eye Don't Belieeeeeeve It


Excuse the TERRIBLE pun in the title but it made me laugh a lot. Victor Meldrew - what a ledge!

The only eye cream I have used is the Clinique one that came free with Glamour magazine earlier this year which I didn't really get on with. I didn't like that it came in a pot as it didn't feel terribly hygienic and it was far too greasy. It made my eyes water a lot and at the end of the day I didn't feel or notice any difference in my eyes.

I do think it's really important to look after your eyes though as the skin round there is obviously really thin and we don't want wrinkles! (Although I personally don't mind 'crow's feet' wrinkles as I think they are a sign that you're a smiley, happy person!) I had heard great things about the Lacura on other blogs and when I saw this in ALDI for a mere £1.49 I had to give it a whirl.

The first thing I noticed about this cream was it's thickness. Now, as I have only tried one eye cream before I am definitely no expert but this was a lot thicker than I expected. Despite this, you only need the tiniest amount. The picture below is more than enough for under both eyes and the lids too.

I don't particularly get bags under my eyes unless I have had literally no sleep but what I do get is really sore under eyes. I think it's because I have sensitive eyes that water a lot and I am quite bad and rub at them - oops! When I have sore eyes, this cream makes the sore bits tingle in a way I can only liken to the tingle you get on your lips when you use lip plumping gloss. It's not uncomfortable, I quite like it, it feels like it's doing something!

I use this most nights and can definitely see and feel a change when I wake up. My eyes are a lot less sensitive since I have been wearing this and my make up even seems to be staying on better?! On the days when I have had dark circles I can't say it make much of a difference but I just read the back and it doesn't actually claim to! Concealer is probs best for that I think.

At £1.49 a tube I will definitely be using this again and I can't wait to try some of their other products which are all equally fabulously priced. Have you tried Lacura? What recommendations do you have?

Love love

Hi Jessica,

They sell Lacura on the UK version of the Aldi Website. They have a website for quite a few countries, here so it's possible they might ship to you!

Let us know and if not, we can try to help!
