Who doesn't love a beauty box? Especially one which won't cost you the earth.

Whether you are obsessed with finding the best eye creams or love trying out the best long-lasting lipsticks, beauty boxes are a great way to sample new make-up or skincare without spending a fortune.

So Aldi's new beauty box, which is filled to the brim with Lacura cult classics—is more than enough to get you racing to their website to sign up to their waiting list.

The Lacura Loves beauty box, which will be available from 26 September is also a bargain at just $17 (£11.99).

The products, which come in a beautifully designed box, are five of the most exciting and popular products from the Lacura range, past and present, including two deluxe full-sized products. 

The cult classic products include their CBD Facial Serum, H2O Sleep Mask, Healthy Glow Glycolic Tonic, Too Legit Mascara and the latest addition to Lacura’s sought after perfume range, Dark Blossom Eau de Parfum.

“We’re so excited to be launching our very first beauty box—the Lacura Loves box is full of amazing products from the wider Lacura range," said Julie Ashfield, managing director of buying at Aldi UK.

"We’ve not only chosen to include cult classics, such as our Too Legit Mascara and Healthy Glow Glycolic Tonic that Lacura fans adore, but also some of our favourite products from our most recent launches. We chose them because they perfectly showcase everything we strive to achieve with our Lacura brand—premium quality products that don’t cost a fortune.”

Fancy getting your hands on it before anyone else? The waiting list is now open on their website, while you can pre-order the box from 19 September.

Aldi's Lacura range is also known for launching products that are dupes of more expensive brands. In May the brand brought out its new skincare range—with some of the products replicating luxury brands such as Glow Recipe and Laneige. 

Part of the skincare range was Lacura's Pineapple Face Serum, which has pineapple extract, vitamin C and turmeric extract—which was the spitting image of Glow Recipe's C-Bright Pineapple serum, but priced £40 cheaper. 

The range also included a H20 overnight mask, which is almost the exact replica of Laneige's water sleep mask—which costs £26—£21 more expensive than the Aldi version.
