If you had to choose between spending £18 or £3.99 on a new skincare product, which would you go for? We know what we’d do, and it would leave us a lot of change from £20!
Well, thanks to value supermarket Aldi, you can now do just that. We’re all familiar with Pixi’s gorgeous Glow Tonic, which promises smooth, blemish-free skin, all packaged in a cute green and orange bottle. It averages £18 a pop, which we’re willing to spend if it really works.
But now there’s a new competitor product giving the famous toner a run for its money, and it couldn’t be more obvious a dupe.

Yep, same colour bottle, similar labelling and everything. The formula is pretty much the same too, containing 5% glycolic acid – great for stopping spots in their tracks – plus aloe vera and ginseng. We challenge anyone to tell the difference!
Promising reviews are also popping up from shoppers on social media, praising Aldi’s new beauty release for its effectiveness and quality. One ‘grammer even said it felt like she’d “had an expensive facial”. Not bad for £3.99!
The Lacura Glycolic Glow Tonic part of Aldi’s SpecialBuys range, which hits stores for a limited time only, so it’s a now or never situation. Get yourself to your nearest Aldi asap if you want to give it a go – it’s sold out online so get ready to fight the other beauty fans for a bottle in your local store.
If you haven’t got an Aldi near you, give can always give these low cost alternatives a whirl instead.
