• Budget retailer Aldi says it costs just £25 to
    restock bathroom with 15 essentials
  • Femail compared a basket from supermarkets plus high
    street chemists
  • Boots and Superdrug were pricier than all
    supermarkets, including Waitrose
  • Morrisons was most expensive supermarket to shop for
    toiletries  

The toiletries aisle at the supermarket has long been
considered a more expensive option than popping into a high
street chain such as Boots or Superdrug to restock the
bathroom.

But throwing your shampoo and shower gel into the trolley
with the weekly shop might be more cost effective after
all. 

According to figures from Aldi, is costs just £25.65 to
restock the bathroom with 15 essential products such as face
wipes and moisturiser from its Lacura range.

So FEMAIL compared a basket of goods from the budget retailer
with the equivalent product from Tesco,
Sainsbury’s, Asda,
Waitrose, Morrison’s, Boots and Superdrug to find out who is
really the cheapest. 

Without taking special officers, such as three for two, into
account, Superdrug came out as the most expensive at £64.71
for a basket of goods – more than double the price at Aldi –
while Boots wasn’t far behind at £63.62.

Morrison’s was the most expensive supermarket at £50.28, on a
par with middle class favourite Waitrose.

Lacura's £6.99 is a rival for big name favourites such as Nivea, which will set you back around £10 from most major supermarkets as well as Boots and Superdrug

Lacura’s £6.99 is a rival for big name favourites such as

The cheapest Nivea moisturiser is £8.50 from Sainsbury's while it's around £10 on the rest of the high street
