The only thing burning a hole in your pocket this summer will be the money you saved!
I know a lot of people that won’t shop in Lidl or Aldi because they believe that cheap prices equals cheap quality and it drives me round the twist. It is a total bugbear of mine. I am not of the same opinion (obviously!) and tend to shop for items based on quality not the name on the store outside. You can get awesome products in Lidl and crappy products in BTs and vice versa. Its all about keeping your mind open people! *rant over*
An email popped into my inbox this week from Lidl and it was very apt given this week’s temperatures. Not only that, but I have used Lidl suncream for the past few years when abroad and they are excellent value for money. They may take a bit more elbow grease to rub in but for the price I do not mind putting in a little bit of effort. I suggest recruiting your other half, or a hunky local to do the work for you Read on »
This whopper 400ml body butter enriched with olive oil and shea butter cost a not so whopper €4.99 in Lidl. It’s aimed at people with rough and dry skin and Lidl have certainly got that one right! Read on »
I am a hand cream fiend. Fiend I TELLS YA! For this reason I am going to let you know what ones I’ve tried, loved and/or hated. First to go head to head in Battle of the Handcreams we have, in the left corner, S&G Hand Food and representing the budget supermarket in the right corner we have Lidl Cien Handcream. Read on »
I usually use l’Oreal Elnett if I have the need for a bit of hairspray but I decided to give the Lidl Cien hairspray a whirl as part of my Supermarket Sweep reviews. I opted for the extra firm hold and volume spray, but they do have several sprays to cater for different requirements including, amongst others, formulations for coloured hair and for fine hold etc. You get a whopping 400ml tinny for under the €2.00 mark! Amazing, considering that an equally sized tin of Elnett would leave you with little change from ten euro bucks. Read on »
I picked up this little, unassuming tube of eye cream a week ago, an impulse buy while in Lidl. I didn’t have any sort of expectations for it, sure it only cost €1.99, and eye creams must break the bank to be effective right? My Avon Anew Clinical Eyelift was just finished, and I hadn’t decided what to buy next, so this was really only a spacefiller until I could find another, more worthy eye cream. The most I could hope for was that it wouldn’t irritate my eyes.
Well ladies, I’m very pleasantly surprised. Isn’t it wonderful when something you have zero expectations for blows you away? Read on »
