Aldi has rolled out an intriguing array of new skin care and hygiene items in its Lacura product line. The latest thing to hit store shelves is lip balm.
I am kind of crazy about lip balm and always keep several tubes around the house and in my purse so I’m never without it. I used to be a longtime fan of the Softlips brand, but now I use a lot of Blistex and ChapStick. I like lip balms that have a pleasant smell, although they don’t necessarily have to be fruity. I also prefer to buy lip balms that have some sunscreen in them because a little SPF is always a good thing, and I am prone to getting cold sores, which SPF can help prevent.
Of course I had to try the new lip balms when I saw them in Aldi’s ad a few weeks ago. The Lacura Face Care Be Kissed Lip Balm advertises a “fruity flavor experience velvety lips;” is made with beeswax, oils, and vitamins; and is dermatologically tested. The package contains three 0.17-ounce lip balm tubes in three flavors: Pomegranate and Aloe Vera, Cranberry Vitamin Smoothie, and Tangerine-Orange.
These balms have real fruit ingredients such as cranberry extract and mandarin orange peel extract. You can check out the ingredients in the photo below.
Aldi’s lip balm and is smooth and seems to do a good job moisturizing lips. It also smells good; it’s fruity but generally doesn’t smell overly sweet like kids’ lip balm. My only complaint is that the Lacura lip balm does not contain SPF. Aside from that, it’s a great lip balm.
Aldi’s Lacura Face Care Be Kissed Lip Balm in Pomegranate and Aloe Vera, Cranberry Vitamin Smoothie, and Tangerine-Orange flavors is good. It smells good and does a good job moisturizing lips. I only wish Aldi’s lip balm had some SPF for sun protection. Otherwise recommended.
