Aldi and Lidl are well known for their replica brands.
Remember when everyone went crazy over those replica Jo Malone candles?
I regularly shop in lidl and aldi, i’m not a brand snob and have no problem in admitting i love a good bargain!
So when i was in lidl and saw this replica Herbal essence shampoo i thought id give it ago. Herbal essences is my go to shampoo, i love the smell and how soft it makes my hair.
After using the replica Cien branded one a few times, i’ve gotta say im pretty damn impressed. It smells exactly the same as the real thing. I mean if you were to blindfold me and ask me which is which i wouldn’t be able to tell, the scent actually lasts a lot longer than the real thing too! Which i was really impressed at.
It leaves my hair feeling just as soft as the branded shampoo, the lather is just as good too. The only downside i found to the Cien shampoo is that it’s a little harder to rinse from your hair for some reason.
But overall for half the price of the branded shampoo, you can’t go wrong,
So if you find yourself on a bit of a budget. Or you’re just up for trying something new i’d definitely recommend giving it ago. After this positive experience i’ll definitely be trying some more of Lidls own branded beauty range!
Until next time,
