The Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Pads were one of my all-time favourite skincare products, which I must have repurchased more than ten times since I first discovered them. However, after a serious allergic reaction which ended up with me needing an ambulance after using one of their products, I no longer use their skincare, so I’ve been looking for an alternative.
There are so many glycolic acid based toner pads on the market from both higher end brands and drugstore brands, and the Aldi Lacura Daily Cleansing Glycolic Pads are raved about often in the beauty community, so I decided to give them a try.
Lacura Daily Cleansing Glycolic Pads
The packaging of the Lacura Daily Cleansing Glycolic Pads is pretty much identical to that of the Nip + Fab version. With a clear plastic jar, and a sky blue and bright orange coloured label. Even the font is spot on, and the Aldi version is just £2.49, whereas the Nip + Fab version is £16.95, so there’s a big difference in price.
Aldi don’t name the quantities of the ingredients within the Lacura Daily Cleansing Glycolic Pads, so it’s hard to compare the ingredients between both version, but they smell very very similar and ultimately, perform very similarly.
I have a full comparison post coming up on the blog very soon, but I can tell you now, even if I hadn’t had an issue with the brand, I’d never purchase the Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Pads after trying the Lacura Daily Cleansing Glycolic Pads as they perform the same.
Aldi change up their products all the time, and products are available one week and gone the next. The Lacura Daily Cleansing Glycolic Pads are a product which come back frequently, so if you can’t find them instore right now, you might be able to find them next week. If you do see them, I cannot recommend them enough, and it’s crazy that they’re only £2.49 for 60 pads, as that’s two months’ worth of pads, and it works out at four pence per pad which is insane.
