Aldi has launched a £3.99 dupe for Pixi's Glow Tonic - and every other beauty product you've ever wanted

Uncanny…

It's no secret that Aldi is partial to a beauty dupe. The likes of Liz Earle and Jo Malone have been their big inspirations in the past, no doubt, but now the much-loved supermarket has turned its attention to another ride-or-die product - Pixi's Glow Tonic. The cult Glycolic Acid toner is loved by beauty bloggers for its exfoliating properties that tone and brighten the skin, but while it's priced at £18.00 for 250ml, Aldi's version, of course, is £3.99 for the exact same amount. Thrifty.

Aldi recently launched a dupe of Pixi's Glow Tonic

The packaging is pretty familiar, too, with the mint green lid and peachy-hued liquid inside - and both products contain a 5 per cent concentration of the coveted AHA ingredient. The toner is getting five star reviews on Aldi's website, as well - so watch out, Pixi - though some skincare buffs have noted that the aloe vera content of the dupe is much lower than the original, despite it being listed on the front of the bottle.

Aside from its other beloved beauty supplies that include duplicates of GlamGlow face masks, Liz Earle's Hot Cloth Cleanser and the Urban Decay Naked Palette, Aldi also stocks a popular range of candles and body products reminiscent of Jo Malone (we dare you to give the Freesia and Pear a sniff) - and a gold concealer pen that looks uncannily like Yves Saint Laurent's Touche Eclat.

And alongside the new Healthy Glow Tonic, the budget store has also mimicked another cult product - Sand & Sky's Instagram-famous Australian Pink Clay Mask, loved by those with acne-prone skins for its super-clarifying qualities. Again, it looks almost identical - mini brush included - though it has a little less of the hero Australian Clay ingredient, which is second on the ingredients list rather than first, like the original. But, at £5.99 instead of Sand & Sky's £39.90, we reckon Aldi's savvy shoppers will happily accept that. Both products are only available on Special Buy, and selling out online, so you better hurry...
