Boots and Superdrug more expensive than supermarket

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

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