Dupe Alert!! Drugstore Dupes for High End Skin Care (L’Oreal vs…L’Oreal?)

IMAG7959

 

Hey guys, hope that you enjoy the video today. Please understand that I’m not in fact endorsing three out of the four products and in fact since the Genifique, Energie de Vie Liquid Moisturiser and Hydra Nutrition all have large quantities of fragrance in them, I would in fact recommend that you stay away from them because it’s not good for the skin. Although I can’t speak for anyone else, those three all made me break out to one degree or another, so sensitive skin beware.

That being said, if you already use either of the two high end products to good results, you’re now aware of two dupes that work just as well. If you’ve been wanting to try either and my warnings haven’t deterred you? Here ya go!

Crushing On Some Julep Skin Care.

I started doing Julep Maven boxes again when I bought a new subscription last September. Before that time I hadn’t done a Maven box in probably two years.

Because I’m not wearing makeup daily though, it means that my skin has more time to recover when something goes wrong and the odd issue crops up. So I’m basically crushing on maintenance items like scrubs, masks, serums and such.

When The Hype is Meh…

Skin care samples can save a life.

I mean it, skin care samples can literally be a way to save face sometimes. Particularly when you happen to get deluxe sizes that you can use for a week or more, so you can get  decent idea of how well a product will or won’t work for you. I’m lucky that my skin is very reactive and will let me know within a use or two if something is for me, others aren’t so fortunate.

Maybe you’ve been eyeing the newest hot skin care items on the market, but you’re reluctant to pull the trigger on purchasing because they’re hella expensive. For me this is a good route to take because I rarely return things, so I’d rather not get stuck with a hundred dollar jar of something that I can’t use. Usually Sephora point perks do not excite me, but when I got the Becca x Chrissy Teigen Palette there were a few from brands that I had wanted to try, so trigger pulled.
