SAVE or SPEND REVIEW: Aldi Caviar Illumination Super Lift Kit

By |2016-12-06T20:09:03+00:00October 25th, 2016|FACEWORKSHOPS CLUB, Product Reviews|

The new Caviar Illumination Super Lift Kit contains caviar extract, soy phyto placenta extract and bio peptide - for youthful and firm looking skin. Included within the kit are four 6ml Super Lift Gel sachets, an application brush and preparation tub. RRP £12.99 We ran our last small perception study on the mask. Given the age and skin types of my participants, we tested it as a pre-party pick-me up. This was an independent study and the participants were unaware of any clinical results or packaging; they were evaluating “skin feel” after application.  Age and skin type of participants below, all Caucasian and based in Yorkshire. Skin feel, texture, sensation.. Good texture, no unpleasant sensation. Nice texture, tightened almost immediately. Texture good, only sensation is the tightening. Mask felt very light when on and comfortable. Felt a slight tightening effect when on. Felt tightening whilst it was drying. Liked the gel like texture, interesting. Felt the mask tightening on the skin as it dried. No other sensations. It wasn't especially pleasant. Very tight and then stinging in various places, noticeable around the nose. Thought the texture was very good, not too thick but not too thin. There was no sensations until the 15 mins were nearly up when it started feeling very tight in my skin. I wasn't keen

SAVE or SPEND REVIEW: Aldi Cuvee 2016 Advent Calendar

We ran a small perception study on the 2016 Aldi Cuvee Royal Advent Calendar, which features 24 skincare treats for the month of December. The calendar contains a mix of 'mini-treatment ampules' for all skin types, including acne-prone and oily skin. Given the age and skin types of my participants, we tested 3 different ampules - hydrating, lifting and bi-phasic rejuvenating ampule with retinol - each for two consecutive nights.  This was an independent study and the participants were unaware of any clinical results or packaging; they were evaluating “skin feel” and ampule application only.  Age and skin type of participants below, all Caucasian and based in Yorkshire. In Summary Ampules are new to the British consumer. They work great when used seasonally, for a specific outcome. The measured-out dose is perceived as a benefit, yet it is clear the liquid formulas should be mixed with a night moisturiser [or an evening oil]. As the Aldi Calendar contains high-tech active ingredients, the actives in the night moisturiser have to be compatible with the ampules [the combination with the Aldi Cuvee moisturisers should work well]. The calendar offers a route to personalisation, however, it caters for too many different skin types at once, without detailed instructions. RRP 19.99 GBP SPEND. Ideal for combination skin types [with oily T-zone and dry U-zone] aged
