To say that Aldi has its finger on the pulse would be an understatement. In fact, the retailer often includes handy gadgets in its Special Buys catalogues that we never knew we needed but once purchased, realise how much we were missing out on.
Aldi has once again hit the nail on the head by including a bunch of eco-friendly beauty and health products in its latest catalogue. On sale Wednesday, December 16, these goodies are good for the planet and will help you lighten your footprint.
Period undies have skyrocketed in popularity over the last couple of years thanks to their reusable nature, which makes them great for the environment. Aldi has joined the bandwagon with its Feminine Hygiene Underwear for $9.99.
These ultra-slim period undies are much more affordable than many on the market and offer two regular tampons worth of absorbency and waterproof protection while also being comfortable and breathable. The undies are made from a soft cotton outer fabric and a Conni micro-terry gusset and come in a variety of sizes.
When it comes to eco-friendly beauty, Aldi has you covered with the Lacura Solid Shampoo & Conditioner Bars. Bar-shaped beauty products don’t require any excess plastic packaging and are perfect for popping in your gym bag or taking with you on a weekend away, which means you don’t have to deal with shampoo leakages in your bag!
Aldi’s bars are formulated with shea butter, coconut oil and cocoa butter to help moisturise the hair and scalp while the addition of Kakadu plum extract hydrates the hair. A gift pack with both the shampoo and conditioner bars costs $9.99.
For those diligent people who regularly floss, have you considered trying an eco-friendly dental floss? White Glo’s Vegan Dental Floss is corn-based and 100% biodegradable so it won’t be sitting in landfill until the end of time. Grab this floss at Aldi for $4.99.
Rounding out Aldi’s eco-friendly beauty offerings are the Reusable Makeup Remover Pads. These washable pads are made with soft, plush fibres and include an inner cushioning that allows for comfortable makeup removal — even for those with the most sensitive skin. Simply wet the pad and wipe away makeup. A pack of three costs $6.99.
