Widely known for affordable groceries, international supermarket chain Lidl has introduced a new affordable vegan beauty range – all priced at £1.99.
Vegan skincare has been a popular topic in 2020, and now with brands like Lidl providing affordable ranges, there’s no reason to not get into some self-care – especially if you want to try or are just transitioning into Vegan products. Some have even spotted the similarities between Lidl’s new range and The Bodyshop’s olive oil-based range from their similar green themed packaging.
Aside from being affordable, Lidl’s new beauty range, ‘Pure Olive’ by Cien, is made of organic olive oil. Olive oil is a great skincare ingredient – it contains a large number of antioxidants and vitamins which helps skin problems like acne, eczema and psoriasis with its moisturising properties.
- Pure Olive Shower Gel – Gently Cleanses, Invigorates Body & Senses (for all skin types). Shower gels can be much more convenient to wash with – they foam fast and clean the body well and due to its olive oil base, can provide rich moisture for the body.
- Pure Olive Body Lotion – Intensive Care & 24-Hour Moisture (for all skin types). This is a great after-shower step for all skin types; due to its olive oil base, it can also provide a moisturising layer to the body especially during months like winter, where skin is more prone to feeling dry.
- Pure Olive Hand Cream – For Dry & Rough Skin. This product is mainly targeted to those with very dry skin as olive oil can sometimes feel a little greasy on the skin. However, with everyone washing their hands very often due to COVID-19, everyone’s hands may need a little more care.
- Pure Olive Face Cream – Intensive Care & 24-Hour Moisture (for all skin types). Though this product is advertised for all skin types, it is more beneficial with those with dry skin – the replenishing properties of olive oil can provide the much-needed moisture. However, for oilier skin types, it may feel a little too moisturising and greasy and you may want to skip out on this one.
