Aldi fans are rushing to pick up its cleansing balm which they think is a dupe for Elemis' cult version but £50 cheaper

OVER the years, Aldi has become a cult favourite for many shoppers, especially those who want to bag cheaper dupes for expensive brands.

This week, the supermarket chain introduced yet another line of products that beauty fans are rushing to get their hands on.

One of them was the TikTok user Brooke, who shared her haul on social media, with the caption: ''Guyss I’m impressed, especially with the perfume!''

One of the items her sister had picked up was a dupe for the Laura Mercier Honey Bath- the cult favourite, which usually retails for £45 and is loved by many celebrities, including the former Love Island star Molly-Mae Hague.

Smelling just as luxurious, just slightly more honey-like, according to Brooke, this aromatic bath-time treat is sold at the store for a fraction of the price, £5.99.


''I just don't understand how they can so obviously copy such big brands' products and get away with it, '' said the shopper.

Next in her list was a duplicate for Elemis' cleansing balm – significantly cheaper, Brooke noted that the only difference between the two was the colour and a slightly stronger scent.

''That actually feels really soft, like oily, like that's just gonna melt your make-up straight off.''

The beauty lover also managed to get her hands on Aldi's copy for the British favourite, Jo Malone perfume.

At a bargain price – almost 95% less than the original – the collection comes in different scents, including Peony Blush and Bergamot Oud, and has received many five star ratings.

''That actually smells very similar,'' Brooke said whilst spraying the bottle.

''I mean, it really doesn't last as long, but to be honest, I've got a couple of Jo Malone perfumes and they don't last that long anyway, I'm not gonna lie,'' she added.

Others items in the haul included a replica of the Sainsbury's Sanctuary Luxury Bath Float and their Foaming Bath Soak.

''They're honestly gonna get sued – that smells good.''

Fellow shopper shared their recommendations, with one commenting: ''Lidl do a dupe of coco mademoiselle called Madame glamour!!

''So good and so much cheaper.''

Another added: ''omg if you see the Glow Recipe dupes pick them up!!

''i honestly love them they’re so good in my opinion!''

''They do a Reed diffuser (if that’s what you call it) and candle in the pomegranate smell and they are gorge!!'' read a third advice.

''Think I’m going to take a trip to Aldi,'' wrote a beauty lover.
