We’re addicted to trying out every and any skincare product that pops up in front of us. But that means that we should have a budget that doesn’t fail, and that is just not quite possible nor is it reasonable but …hey … if that’s your thing we’re not judging …we’re merely a tiny bit jealous. That being said, and if you’re a skincare junkie just like us, we decided to research for you the best skincare dupes out there so that you can try out all products to your heart’s content.
1 || If you like Vintner’s Daughter Active Botanical Serum you will love Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate
This cult product was made using 22 clean active ingredients that include Grape Seed Oil, Turmeric, and Rosehip to name a few. It also includes a number of botanical oils and fatty acids that are cold-pressed and sustainably-sourced. There is a three-week period where the plants are infused with powerful additives, and the oil is then formulated with a three-level delivery system. Therefore, you can see how this glow-boosting, anti-inflammatory, and nutritional face oil comes with its hefty price tag. Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate can be its close relative with its blend of ginger root, sunflower oil, antioxidant citrus extracts that give the skin an instant glow.
2 || If you like Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil you will love The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane
This luxe face oil is another cult-favourite product that contains a gentler form of retinol in a lightweight oil to help offset any possible irritation from the retinol. On top of that, German Chamomile and Blue Tansy are soothing ingredients that soften lines and nourish the skin and restore elasticity. The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane will provide the same anti-aging benefits with its combination of fatty acids, antioxidants, tomato extract, and jojoba oil.
3 || If you like Tatcha The Dewy Skin Cream you will love Bliss Ex-glow-sion Super Rich Moisturiser
Tatcha The Dewy Skin Cream is a thirst-quencher for dry skin types. This luxurious cream nourishes the skin using Japanese purple rice and botanical extracts such as ginseng, wild thyme and sweet marjoram. It’s drugstore dupe, Bliss Ex-glow-sion Moisturiser, can offer the same benefits minus the hefty price tag with ingredients such as vitamin C, Pro-vitamin B5, and shea butter, in a soufflé-like texture that’s light yet rich.
4 || If you like Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Mask you will love Revolution Skincare Pink Clay Mask
Sand & Sky’s iconic pink clay mask is the perfect antidote for oily skin, acne and large pores. It is packed with natural minerals, kakadu plum, witch hazel, and aloe vera. It can exfoliate, unclog pores, and remove blackheads without drying out the skin. Revolution Skincare’s own pink clay mask is perfect for decongesting pores and detoxifying with its ingredients of witch hazel and seaweed extract.
5 || If you like Drunk Elephant’s TLC Sukari Babyfacial you will love The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
This award-winning product works on revealing baby-smooth skin by using a combination of resurfacing AHA/BHAs. It is made with all skin types in mind despite its potent combination of glycolic, tartaric, lactic, citric, and salicylic acids. The Ordinary’s Peeling Solution is the closest thing with its deep exfoliation and resurfacing properties. There is a reason this one’s almost always sold out.
6 || If you like SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic Serum you will like Timeless Ferulic Acid Serum
Even though SkinCeutials have patented their blend of active ingredients that includes 15% L-ascorbic acid, 1% vitamin E, and 0.5 % ferulic acid but that didn’t prevent others from trying their best to copy this perfect combination. The vitamin C in this product is formulated in such a way to help it stay stable for up to six months and that is no easy feat. Timeless Ferulic Acid Serum has the closest blend percentages and it also includes hyaluronic acid for added benefits. It has over 1,500 reviews positively comparing it to the original.
7 || If you like Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex you will love OleHenriksen Banana Bright Eye Crème
This cult-loved product does what it claims in terms of repairing, brightening, hydrating and preventing lines and wrinkles. With its own patented repair technology, it also has anti-oxidant properties and it promotes the skin’s natural repair process. For half the price, OleHenriksen’s Banana Cream was actually inspired by makeup artists’ banana powder and it delivers an amazing job in diminishing dark circles and taking care of fine lines.
