Do you remember roughly five million years ago when I purchased Aldi’s $4 wrinkle cream and promised to return with a review?? Well, HERE YOU GO:
At first, it was total WHOASVILLE, because it’s so thick and seriously hydrating. My skin was so thirsty and showed immediate improvement, and I thought I had discovered the answers to all my life’s problems. BUT I AM EXPENSIVE AND FOUR DOLLARS IS NOT ENOUGH, UNSURPRISINGLY.
- My pores became seriously clogged. Like the worst ever.
- MY HANDS!!! The retinol didn’t seem to bother my face, but my poor hands. Within a couple of days, they were dry and cracked and rashy.
All that being said … this is not a total write-off for me, because it’s GREAT ON MY NECK. About a month ago, I noticed a really serious and horrifying turkey moment happening when I twisted my head a certain way, and I grabbed this in desperation.
But the hands again!!!
Also, was it so hard to put this in a white jar with a black lid or something? Aesthetically, it bothers me. A lot.
So … I’ll prob keep this around and grab a jar when I’m out buying crackers, but I need to make sure I wash my hands always always always after applying. And it’s just for my neck. Not for my baby face.
