Aldi has announced the return of one of its top skincare favourites loved by beauty fans and customers alike. For anyone who likes their products smelling as sweet as a nut, Aldi’s drop should be on your radar.

Landing in stores across the UK on Thursday, July 25, Aldi’s Lacura Almond Shower Oil (£4.99, 200ml), Almond Body Lotion (£4.99, 200ml) and Almond Body Scrub (£4.99, 200ml) will be back. But like all Specialbuys - once they’re gone, they’re gone.

The budget buys can help shoppers save up to a massive 89 per cent on popular luxury brand L’Occitane. The Lacura Almond Body Scrub (£4.99) contains ground sweet almond shell to gently cleanse and exfoliate for softer and smoother skin.

It’s delicately scented to help remove impurities and dead skin cells for a refreshed and toned finish. In comparison, L’Occitane’s En Provence Almond Body Scrub will set you back £22.50.

Formulated with sweet almond oil, the Lacura Almond Shower Oil (£4.99) can help gently cleanse the skin while leaving it feeling pampered, moisturised, and nourished. This can save you a cool 70 per cent on the L’Occitane En Provence Almond Shower Oil, which is priced at £20.50.

And lastly, to help leave skin textures looking visibly smoother and firmer, the Lacura Almond Body Lotion (£4.99) boasts almond oil and vitamin E for a hydrated and supple finish. This can save you a whopping 89 per cent saving on the L’Occitane En Provence Almond Body Lotion, which you’ll have to fork out £45.50 for.

Having originally been released last year, the almond skincare collection quickly became a hit amongst shoppers. Fans of L’Occitane raved about Aldi’s products as being “exactly the same” as the luxury items.

Shopper Clare James wrote in the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group: “For anyone who loves the L’Occitane almond collection, here’s one for you. It smells exactly the same, it’s slightly more greasy but very nice feeling on the skin. Love an Aldi UK dupe.”

Another customer, Marlie, said the Almond Body Scrubs “smells amazing” in a TikTok video. She captioned the post: “L'occitane almond dupes run to Aldi.”
