Shoppers are desperate to find one of Aldi’s £4.99 beauty products with some admitting to searching around five of its stores every week since the item was first released.
The budget supermarket released a range of beauty products last month, many of which looked very similar to ones sold by designer brands and caused plenty of excitement among shoppers.
One of the stand out products from this range was its Lacura Moisture Boost cream priced at £4.99.
It is currently sold out online, with Aldi advising customers to check their local stores instead.
According to the product’s description, it promises to “hydrate and refresh” skin while helping users keep a “youthful appearance”.

Taking to Facebook one Aldi shopper asked others if they had managed to find the product in any stores claiming she was “desperate” to find it, as well as admitting to continuously searching stores.
Reading the reviews left by other customers it is not a surprise the cream is in such demand. It has almost 150 five star reviews.
Among them, one Aldi customer said: “I love this stuff! keep it on the fridge and put it on before bed every night. Please make it part of your regular brand in store as it’s all sold out now and I need to purchase some more.
Another wrote: “As good as any top brand and better price. Hardly any perfume, light on the skin, perfect moisturiser for sensitive skin – I suffer with adult acne and this doesn’t aggravate it.”
And, a third said: “As a Beauty Therapist I have tried and tested many products over the years and have found that you don’t have to break the bank to find gems like this product. It offers the same quality as a well known high end brand at a fraction of the price.
