I don't need the extra SPF protection of my usual Estee Lauder DayWear Sheer Tint Release moisturiser at this time of year (my foundation has SPF - I would never go without any protection), and given it's £43 for 50ml I thought it was worth trying a cheaper alternative to illuminate and moisturise my skin. At £2.29 for 50ml I figured Aldi's Lacura Beautifying Balm was worth a gamble, and I have to say I've been really impressed with the results. Bingo!
I think you'll have figured by now this product is a dupe of the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, and in line with that product this one can also be used as a mask.
It's safe to say this will now be my 'go to' winter daytime moisturiser. Unfortunately at the time of writing this the product is out of stock online but it's worth checking back, and if you have a store near you I would hot foot it there and snap some up.
