I have a very exciting exclusive for you today, and it’s the incredible Aldi Lacura 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar 2021. This is the first year Aldi have ever created a beauty themed advent calendar.
So I feel very lucky to have been gifted this calendar to showcase the contents on Makeup Muddle ahead of it going on general sale tomorrow; Sunday the 24th of October, and it’ll be available instore from the 28th of October.
“Beauty lovers rejoice, Aldi’s beauty brand, Lacura, is launching its very first luxury Advent Calendar (£49.99). Boasting a stunning look that is sure to take pride of place in any shelfie, this beauty box is packed full with twenty four iconic cruelty-free products, from cult favourites to brand-new launches. “
The Aldi Lacura 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar 2021 is £49.99, and the beauty advent calendar arena is very competitive this year. There are some amazing calendars on offer this year, but I genuinely believe the Aldi advent calendar is one of the best under £50 advent calendars available for 2021. Aldi have made quite the name for themselves, with rave Lacura Miracle Oil reviews everywhere, so this calendar is very exciting.
There’s absolutely no doubt that this little beauty is going to sell out extremely quickly, in a matter of hours once it launches, just like the Lacura Loves Beauty Box too.
So if you like the look of this calendar, you’re going to have to snap it up asap to avoid disappointment, as there’s limited stock both for the online sale, and also when it launches instore on the 28th of October.
The Aldi Lacura 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar 2021 is going to be £49.99, and it is a twenty-four-day advent calendar with a stunning chest design. The calendar has a magnetic front, which splits down the middle to reveal twenty-four beautiful drawers. Then there’s a massive black, satin ribbon which ties the calendar together in a big box.
I cannot believe how beautifully presented this calendar is. The presentation of the Aldi Lacura 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar 2021 makes the Feel unique and Lookfantastic calendars look so plain and boring in comparison. The front of this calendar is coated in deep green velvet, with a gold foil confetti effect.
Once you open the Aldi Lacura 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar 2021, the inside of the two front flaps have a marble effect, and the twenty-four drawers are a mix of gold, white and gold marble, or deep green and gold patterns.
I like that the days are mixed with numbers and written numbers, and it’s just so nicely presented, and feels so luxe and sturdy for a £49.99 calendar. Each of the twenty-four drawers are filled with black tissue paper to protect all of the products, and the drawers are easy to slide out. So let’s take a look at the products inside the Aldi Lacura 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar 2021…
Let’s start with day number one, and it’s the Aldi Lacura Jelly Cleanser 15ml, which is a dupe for the Drunk Elephant Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser. This is a trial size, and it’s one of the newest beauty launches for Aldi, featuring a marula oil, glycerin and watermelon formula.
Next up is a makeup product, and it’s the Aldi Lacura Clear Brow Gel in a 2g travel-friendly size. This is a dupe for the Benefit 24Hr Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel. It features a tiny, tapered natural bristled brush for precise application to keep your brows in place all day long.
Then we have the Aldi Lacura Healthy Glow Overnight Relaxing Pillow Mist 15ml. This is a very exciting addition to the calendar, as it’s brand new to the range, and I am so excited to be one of the first to try it. It’s infused with jasmine, lavender and chamomile to encourage a deep and restful slumber.
Day number four houses the Aldi Lacura Makeup Setting Spray 10ml, which is a product I already own from their main range, and it’s brilliant. It is a straight-up dupe for the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, and this 10ml size couldn’t be more perfect for your makeup bag.
Next up in the Aldi Lacura 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar 2021 is the Aldi Lacura Avocado Bright Eyes Overnight Retinol Sleeping Mask in a 15ml size. This is a dupe for the Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask, and the packaging is almost identical. Except the full size of the Aldi version is £4.49, and the Glow Recipe version is £41 – yes, really.
For day six of the Aldi Lacura 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar 2021, we have one of my absolute favourite Aldi products. It’s the Aldi Lacura Floral Noir et Blanc Eau de Toilette 25ml, and it is a 100% dupe for Marc Jacobs Daisy, and I’ve done a full review right here. It’s not even that it’s similar, it smells identical, and wears for around the same time too, so I’m very happy it’s included in the calendar.
We have a skincare product next, and it’s the Aldi Lacura Vitamin C Serum 25ml. This is slightly smaller than the new version of this serum, which has 30ml, and is a dupe for the Drunk Elephant C Firma Day Serum, which is seriously expensive compared to this budget friendly Aldi version.
Day number eight features the Aldi Lacura Hemp Hand Cream in a 5ml mini size. I do wish this was a slightly larger tube as 5ml is really tiny for a hand cream, but it’s a good way to try the formula to see if you’d enjoy the full size, and it’s a The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector dupe.
If you’re a regular Makeup Muddle reader, you’ll have seen my review of the Aldi Lacura Cleansing Balm, and it features in the calendar in a travel friendly 25g size. It’s a dupe for the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm, and it’s an amazing cleansing balm at that!
We’re now on to day ten, and it’s the Aldi Lacura Vitamin C & Turmeric Oil 25ml, which appears to be a brand new launch, which again is exciting to see in the calendar. It features vitamin C and E, turmeric and also essential oils too. It’s a dupe for the very expensive Sundary Riley CEO Glow Oil, and I can’t wait to try it.
We next have the Aldi Lacura Rose Water Micellar Cleansing Water in a travel-friendly 30ml size. I’m yet to try this version of the micellar water, so I’m excited to try it, as it’s said to be soothing and gentle, which is perfect for the removal of your eye makeup.
For day twelve of the Aldi Lacura 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar 2021 we have the Aldi Lacura Pineapple Micro-Dermabrasion Scrub 15ml, and it’s a great dupe for the Kiehl’s Pineapple and Papaya Face Scrub. I have the full size of this scrub, and i’ll be sharing my review very soon.
Next is a dupe for the Laneige Lip Glowy Balm, and it’s the Aldi Lacura Dewy Lip Balm in the Berry scent. I didn’t love the Laneige version, as I much prefer the original Lip Sleeping Mask, so I’m excited to try the Aldi version, and the berry scent sounds delicious.
The product inside drawer number fourteen is the Aldi Lacura Healthy Glow Retinol & Acacia Collagen Plumping Serum, which is a Pixi Retinol & Collagen Serum dupe. I have heard really great things about this serum, so I can’t wait to try the Lacura Healthy Glow Plumping Serum, as it sounds like a powerhouse of a serum, and I love the lilac bottle.
I LOVE that the calendar features a candle (spoiler: there’s two), and the first is the Aldi Rose Noir Luxury Candle in a 65g size. This Rose Noir scent is a divine dupe for the Jo Malone Velvet Rose & Oud Candle, and the scent is very similar.
It’s beautiful, and I was gutted when I missed out on the full size candle when it was on sale in the Hotel Collection, so I’m thrilled to finally have the scent in my collection.
We have one of the bestselling products from the Aldi beauty range next, and it’s the Aldi Lacura Too Legit! Mascara in a 6.5g mini size. Whilst 6.5g is considered a mini size, there’s full-size mascaras with less product than that, so it’s a good size. It’s a dupe for Benefit They’re Real! and it’s a great volumising and lengthening mascara, which never crumbles or flakes, nor does it smudge.
The Aldi Lacura 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar 2021 next contains another fragrance for day seventeen, and it’s the Aldi Je Suis Belle Eau de Toilette 25ml. This is said to be a dupe for Lancome La Vie Est Belle, which is one of my favourites.
I’m wearing it today funnily enough, and this perfume is similar, but it’s definitely not a dupe. It’s still a lovely sweet and woody scent, but it’s not a dupe like the Floral Noir et Blanc is for Marc Jacobs Daisy.
Another skincare treat next in the Aldi Lacura 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar 2021, and it’s the Aldi Lacura Wanderlust Rescue Mask 15ml, which is a brand new launch for Aldi, and will be launching very soon. It’s possible this might be a dupe for the Eve Lom Rescue Mask, but I’ll report back once I’ve had a chance to test it out for you.
We then have the Aldi Lacura Ebony Rose Face Cream 15ml, which is a dupe for an extremely luxurious product, and it’s the Sisley Black Rose Skin Infusion Cream which is £150 – no joke. This is a 15ml mini size, and even though it’s mini, it’s a weighty luxurious purple frosted glass jar, and it has such a rich and sumptuous texture.
Next up in the Aldi Lacura 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar 2021 is the Aldi Lacura Snapshot Ready Foundation Primer 10ml, which is a dupe for the Smashbox Photoready Primer. I’ve got many of the different Aldi Lacura Snapshot Primers, and they’re honestly fantastic. This is a pore blurring primer, which makes the skin look airbrushed.
We have a second Sisley dupe which is very exciting, and it’s the Aldi Lacura Ebony Rose Face Mask 20ml, which is a dupe for the Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask, which is £119 for the Sisley version – wow. This is one of the most exciting products in the calendar, and I love a good face mask.
For day 22 we have the second luxurious candle, and it’s the Aldi Night Orchid Luxury Candle 65g, which is a dupe for Tom Ford’s Black Orchid fragrance. It’s a very strong and powerful fragrance, and I just hope it burns as beautifully as it smells, as it’d be an amazing scent for the home.
The product inside drawer 23 of the Aldi Lacura 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar 2021 is a brand new product, and it’s the Aldi Lacura Luxury Illuminating Tan Drops 10ml, in the shade Light / Medium. It’s a Tan Luxe The Illuminating Tanning Drops dupe, and so exciting to have another new exclusive in the calendar.
It’s day 24, and the very last product inside the Aldi Lacura 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar 2021 is the Aldi Lacura Dream Big Bronzer 8g, and it’s a full size which is £5.99 to purchase on its own. I’ve already reviewed this bronzer, and swatched it alongside Benefit Hoola Bronzer – and it’s a spot-on dupe!
The Aldi Lacura 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar 2021 is absolutely amazing. You’re getting such a fantastic mix of products inside the calendar. With perfumes, candles, makeup, skincare, bodycare, self tan, and even a pillow mist.
For £49.99, I think it’s the best under £50 beauty advent calendar available for 2021, and I am so excited to be able to try all of these lovely products. This calendar launches tomorrow (Sunday 24th October) on the Aldi website, and you’ll find it instore from the 28th of October whilst stocks last.
