When we’re looking for affordable skincare there are a few budget staples that are our go-tos.

Aldi’s Lacura range, cult brand The Ordinary and of course budget supermarket Lidl.

The high-street retailer’s classic Cien line offers a range of skincare essentials that are suitable for different needs, including a day cream, a night cream and two different types of facial wipes that come in at only 39p each.

But now they’ve come out with a new range based around the skincare ingredient of the moment – hyaluronic acid.

For the last couple of years the skincare ingredient has been front and centre on every beauty enthusiast’s bathroom shelves for its ability to leave skin plump, moisturised and with a fresh-faced glow.

And while there are different price points for the seemingly magical formula, from The Ordinary’s £5.90 bottle to Skinceuticals’ £85 version, Lidl’s new offering has to be one of the cheapest.

The new Cien Hydro Expert range starts at only £1.49 and, despite the lack of a hyaluronic acid serum, the whole range contains hyaluronic sodium that promises to deliver the same expert technology for a fraction of the price.

For make-up removal and skin cleansing, the range offers their Hydro Expert by Cien Micellar Water for £1.49 as well as a Cleansing Lotion and Cleansing Gel both for £1.99 each.

In addition to the cleansing products, the range includes three moisturising gels that are designed for different skincare needs.

The Hydro Expert Aqua Gel and Hyaluron Gel, both £2.99 each, are moisturising layers great for locking in hydration for all types of skin, while the Crème Gel, also £2.99, is better for those with really dry skin types.

You can get your hands on the whole range from tomorrow (3rd October) in Lidl stores around the country.

But it will only be available while stocks last so you better be quick if you want to give it a try.
