It was such an exciting announcement to hear that one of Ireland’s favourite supermarkets, Aldi, had received the Leaping Bunny certification for their Lacura cosmetic range. The Leaping Bunny is the only internationally recognised programme for cruelty-free cosmetic products, and is the most reliable official cruelty-free certification in the world.

The Lacura range by Aldi is not only cruelty-free, but very affordable, too. The brand offers an array of cosmetic items, with amazing NEW products to get you glowing this Spring.
With three different formulas to choose from, you can go for the XXL, Volume Sensational or 3D Effect mascara. At a bargain price of €2.49, these mascaras could even be collectibles for your cruelty-free makeup collection!

Eau De Toilette
It can be so difficult to find an officially-certified cruelty-free perfume that is within anybody’s price range, which is why these new fragrances from the Lacura range are a steal! Choose from three scents to suit your personality; Dancing Queen, Girly on Tour or Princess for a Day.

Lacura Glycolic Pads
Glycolic Pads are the most convenient way to cleanse and exfoliate your face. They have become a popular beauty trend over the last year due to their ability to scrub off dead skin cells and remove makeup quickly and easily. Lacura’s Glycolic Pads are effective at improving the texture and tone of your skin, as well as resurfacing the skin for clean, soft skin.
Lacura Glycolic Pads, €3.99/60 pack
Lacura Argan Day/Night Cream
An effective, low-cost and cruelty-free alternative to Garnier’s Moisture Bomb moisturiser, these creams replenish the skin with moisture. Their concentrated formula is infused with natural Argan oil, a cherished ingredient in the beauty industry for its restorative properties. The Lacura Day Cream helps to regenerate cells naturally while smoothing the skin, and the Lacura Night Cream coats your skin in a restorative blanket of moisture to renew your skin’s softness while you sleep.
Lacura Argan Day/Night Cream, €3.99 each
Lacura Miracle Cream
This is the cream we all need after this cold and snow we have been exposed to in Ireland recently. Lacura’s Miracle Cream is coming to the rescue!
