Aldi have brought back their award winning suncare range for 2017, it has been revamped with a lovely new scent and easy to use packaging, oh and they have extended the range to include a few new products.
New additions to the Lacura 2017 collection include Clear Sun Sprays (£3.29) in SPF 30 & 50 providing a refreshing and quick drying formula that’s 100% transparent. The new fragrance encapsulates the essence of summer within the water-resistant Lacura Moisturising Sun Lotions & Sprays in SPF 15 and SPF 30 (£2.79) and Protective Oil Spray SPF 15 (£2.99).
This budget friendly range is all 5* UVA rated and also provides UVB filters too. UVA cause the premature ageing of our skin, whilst UVB rays cause sunburn and lead to skin cancer.
I have been trying out 3 products from the range,
Lacura Moisturising Sun Lotion SPF 15 & 30*
This is has your typical sun lotion consistency but instead of just being an SPF this formula actually helps to hydrate the skin and is also water resistant. The green tea & vitamin E are antioxidant rich and help to soothe, protect against free radicals and nourish skin whilst the SPF30 helps to prevent skin from the damaging effects of the UVA & UVB rays. There is no getting away from that sticky feeling which comes from reapplying a lotion style sun lotion but this Lacura one has quite a lightweight fluid consistency which makes it easy to apply and leaves no white marks on your skin.
Lacura Refreshing Sun Spray SPF 15 & 30*
If a lotion is not your prefered formula when it comes to sun protection then fear not because Aldi also have a range of sun sprays in a water resistant transparent formula. This lightweight sun spray makes it perfect if you want to apply on the go. The fact it is a spray means it’s easier to apply on yourself in those hard to reach places, like your back. It is also handy to spray on kids that are in and out of the water on holiday because this can be applied even to wet skin.
This sun spray isn’t as moisturising as the lotion but it is lightweight, quick drying and non greasy. I tend to apply the lotion then top up throughout the day with the spray because it is nice and refreshing on the go.
Lacura Protective Oil Spray SPF 15*
I almost overlooked this product because I thought it was going to be greasy and sticky on the skin but I couldn’t have been more wrong. Once you spritz and massage this in, your skin feels satin smooth and with a healthy glossy finish. I was surprised at how lightweight and non greasy the formula is and it smells incredible too! Although this wouldn’t be my first choice for a facial SPF product, I do however like how it looks and feels on my legs so I will be using very generously on them.
This also gives you 5*UVA & UVB protection as well as being water resistant. At the moment this only comes in SPF15 but I would love it if Lacura would extend the range to include a few higher factors.
The Lacura range is incredibly budget friendly without compromising on quality, their prices range from £1.99 to £3.29, which means you now have no excuse for leaving home without applying your SPF! They have a great selection of sun protection for the whole family so make sure you stock up at your local Aldi store.
