Enter the dupe: A product that duplicates the results of a much more expensive alternative, but for a whole lot less. ET has rounded up some of the best dupes of some the most popular and best-selling serums, foundations, acne potions, eye creams and lip plumpers, so you can save money while reaping similar benefits of all your favorite products.
Gwyneth Paltrow calls this newly launched pre-shampoo serum a "miracle" on her hair. With cuticle-sealing vitamin C, omega-rich sea buckthorn oil, and shine-boosting plumeria monoi oil, this pre-wash formula helps to promote shine, minimize frizz and elevate hair texture to hold a smoother finish.
This multi-oil serum blend meshes Maize Oil, Procaxi Oil and Argan Oil to cultivate an award-winning formula that aims to add hydration to hair, prevent breakage, minimize frizz and restore a natural shine to otherwise damaged follicles.
If the steep $39 price tag of a 500mL bottle of Aesop's Resurrection is a bit much, Baylis & Harding’s Goodness Natural Hand Washes are packaged in a similarly styled bottle and are available in a bunch of equally refreshing aromas.
Let’s Neck delivers the benefits of a collagen-boosting serum for a fraction of the $82 price of Dermalogica’s high-end version. It’s formulated with Hyaclear 7 —an advanced form of hyaluronic acid — which the company says optimizes skin’s moisturization, elasticity and firmness, and Pepha-tight, a microalgae extract that promises to deliver an instant tightening experience. Did we mention the applicator is cooling (magic words to anyone experiencing hot flashes or seeking some relief in warmer temps) and massaging?
According to a 2006 clinical study, retinoids show promise in the treatment of skin aging. You can splurge on Sunday Riley’s popular retinol serum ($85) or try this budget-friendly, antioxidant-rich alternative from Kate Upton’s Found Active line. It promises to soothe away fine lines and wrinkles, giving your skin a more even texture.
Not all budgets can take a $145 bottle of night cream. We love WLDKAT’s more affordable alternative: The company's skin-quenching night cream-slash-mask, infused with fatty-acid rich starflower oil as well as snow mushroom extract, is packed with key vitamins and minerals.
Dyson’s Airwrap is one of the most extravagant hair tools on the market -- and it works. Created to work on multiple hair types, this tool curls, creates waves, smooths, adds volume... truly whatever your tresses need it to do.
If you can’t afford the $550 miracle Dyson gadget, we have a budget-friendly alternative. TikTok’ers are wild about CHI’s Air Spin N Curl, a fuss-free and inexpensive tool that helps achieve enviable barrel curls in seconds.
Get Gwyneth-worthy skin for a fifth of the price. Versed Sunday Morning packs a similar punch of moisture and nourishment, with an ingredient list that includes camellia oil and sea buckthorn extract that claim to reduce redness and prevent moisture loss and chamomile extract, vitamin E and sodium hyaluronate to keep skin hydrated and bright. We also love that the oil-serum is lightweight and greaseless, making it the perfect addition to your summer skin care regiment.
If you want to spend less than half the price of Moroccan Oil's leave-in, give Odele’s version a try. Not only is it budget-friendly, it's also vegan, cruelty-free, sulfate-free and color-safe, and will make combing your pool, beach or shower hair a breeze. And did we mention it smells amazing too?
You can save $8 compared to the Kate Somerville EradiKate by picking up a bottle of Mario Badescu’s celeb-obsessed Drying Lotion, a pink potion that sucks the moisture out of all your pimples. Reviewers say it helps improve acne and reduces pimples overnight.
This lightweight gel cream is good for combatting dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles. With three types of hyaluronic acid and ceramides, Summer Fridays claims this cream offers visible plumping and hydration.
Gel-based moisturizers are a lightweight, skin-quenching solution for summer. Winky Lux and Summer Fridays both offer gel based moisturizers with hyaluronic acid and glycerin -- which they say is good for plumping hydration. If you want to save $12, go with Winky Lux.
Only a small percentage of people can spend $400 a jar of La Prairie to help keep their under-eye region plump and free of fine lines. Elizabeth Grant Skin Care’s Caviar Eye Cream is formulated with similarly rich ingredients -- including caviar extract that's said to help boost epidermal hydration levels and improve skin elasticity and resiliency -- at a much lower price.
Looking for a lightweight, brightening and lightening undereye treatment to help keep the delicate area nourished all summer long? SallyeAnder Nourish, made out of 100% natural ingredients, claims to get the job done for just $15 if you don't want to spend $55 for the GOOP alternative.
