“Thing’s that roll usually don’t work for me…roller skates, roller blades…unless it’s of the baked variety of course” That being said, things can change – in the flick of a wrist!
Where are my manners? Hello everyone, my name is Zara – usually working under the name ‘ZaraLouU’ because…things. Anywho – mama? No moolah? Moth’s actually die in your purse through lack of funds? Yah, me too. Let’s look at budget beauty buys together huh?
Now for me, nothing beats a beauty buy that’s accessible, affordable and rudding well works regardless of how much it cost, it has to have some clout!
In which steps in my love for ALDI. Honestly, the sensation and buzz you get from whacking in a beauty product alongside your super six cucumber and tomatoes for 35p each is the stuff dreams are made of. Rock ‘n’ roll baby, I live life in the fast lane (as fast as the spinach leaves that will wilt in the bag whilst I mooch the special buys anyway)
So this trips choosing/perusing/mooching came up with the ‘LACURA face care CAVIAR illumination eye care roll on’ Stepping up at a really nicely priced £4.49 (price correct as of 20/01/2017)and at that price in it went alongside my hand wash and other odds and ends needed to wipe the toddlers tush.
Now, here’s my gripe – upon inspection, the box does not state the recommended age group for this product (which normally isn’t the case for Lacura products) but once I had opened it, the leaflet stated from approximately early 40’s and onwards. So the trump (oh that’s not the best choice of words as of right now is it?) here is that I’m 31, so I’m at least 9 years or more from the recommended age, Yet! I have quite boggly eyes, and a fair few lines appearing underneath them (maybe my eyes are falling through?) so because of this I shrugged it off.
“LACURA CAVIAR ILLUMINATION EYE CARE ROLL ON
With caviar extract, hyaluronic acid and hydrating active ingredients
Luxurious eye care in a hand roll-on with a cooling decongestant effect through the metal ball applicator. A complex of four active ingredients promotes skin hydration and support the reduction of dryness lines. The exclusive DNA-gel helps repair skin texture and to intensively moisturise mature and dry skin.”
Sounds pretty good right? So with lots of taut lip pulling in curiosity I sat and ripped the box open with so much Faust that even Augustus Gloop’s eyes would water and admired the very neat looking pen in my hands, resisting the urge to wingardium leviosa – or whatever the heck it is – my husband.
The product itself is really swish for under 5 squiddies – Really SWISH, and to apply? Gently roll on from outer to inner corner of the eye without applying pressure and then gently tap into the skin. I have to say, the cool metal rollerball is delicious on the skin like humnahumnahumna nice too – as for the product? It goes on really well. Upon ‘tapping’ into the skin it’s somewhat sticky which feels quite odd, but as someone who is used to being utterly slummy I assume this is just what the product is.
Results wise – I have indeed seen some difference, it’s early days but my under designer eye bags are looking somewhat less sunken and a lot less dark. Although they would probably look heaps better if my daughter decided to wake at times when the sun wants to rise the little vampire she is.
Its Slummy Mummy approved for sure. Now onward noble peeps! Go grab that loaf of bread and Caviar roll on! HUZZAH!
Ta rah a bit
Zara loves all things make up and beauty. When she’s not drooling over makeup stalls and things that she cannot afford, she’s usually slummy mummy-ing around with her two kids (and her big kid husband). She also spends her days abusing most Snapchat filters, admittedly much more than any person humanly should… oh dear!
