Best & Worst⁉⁉ My Personal Ranking of 4 Hyped B5 Products...
Vitamin B5 helps keep skin soft, smooth and healthy. It has an anti-inflammatory effect that can help stimulate your skin's healing processes. I have combo skin and I've tried 4 hyped B5 products. Here is my personal ranking of them: 1⃣LA ROCHE-POSAY Baume B5 2⃣SKINCEUTICALS Hydrating B5 Gel 3⃣The Ordinary B5 4⃣LA ROCHE-POSAY Serum B5 The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 $6.8 for 30ml This is an amazing product at an inciting price tag. You really can't go wrong with $6.00 for this goodness. It has a sticky consistency with no scent. When you rub it into your skin, it suds up a bit. After a moment it seeps into the skin. Another thing to note is that it peeled under my sunscreen and makeup products, so I just used it in the evening. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Hyalu B5 Pure Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum $30 for 30ml The one major flaw in this product is the fragrance. It is a heavily perfumed scent that takes a long time to disappear and its not suitable for sensitive skin. The texture is sticky but it didn't ball up on my face. It seemed to absorb slowly, which means I had to wait along time to apply moisturizer over top. It may have worked to leave my skin hydrated but I will not repurchase it for the texture and fragrance. SKINCEUTICALS - Hydrating B5 Gel $83 for 30ml The price is kinda steep but you get what you pay for! The texture is silky and a little goes a long way. And it didn't ball up at all. It keeps the skin hydrated and plump. Although the product is pricey, it lasts for a long time and does the job, thus it is worth it. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Cicaplast Baume B5 for Dry Skin Irritations $15 for 40ml This is my holy grail irritated skin rescue product! When I suffered from sensitive skin conditions or went too hard on the retinol, it works well to speed up the skin recovery process and moisturize dry patches. My skin even gets sting when I apply La mer, but this balum helps so much to reduce the irritation and soothe the healing skin. I HIGHLY recommend for any irritated skin that needs quick healing. If you have any questions or suggestions hmu 😘💖‼️

💰💰Money saved！9 Drunk Elephant Skincare Dupes Recommended by Youtuber Cassandra Bankson👍👍！(2)
Hey guys! In my last post, I introduced four Drunk Elephant skincare dupes recommended by Cassandra. This post, I will continue to show you the remaining five best Drunk Elephant dupes that contain similar or identical ingredients as Drunk Elephant products and achieve similar or identical results but with lower prices👇👇. The Original: DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum$128 The Dupe: #FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow AHA Resurfacing Night Serum[products]# $88 " FARMACY Honeymoon Glow AHA Resurfacing Night Serum is not the perfect dupe, but they are similar." said Cassandra. They both have the key ingredient AHA, which is a glycolic acid exfoliating the skin. Also, they have a greatest-hits list of non-abrasive chemical exfoliants: tartaric, lactic, citric, and salicylic acids are all in this potent PM cocktail to sweep away dead skin cells and brighten everything up. The Original: DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Mask$80 The Dupe: BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Glycolic Renewal Mask, $68 Cassandra pointed out that this dupe is a steal of a deal with some of the same great ingredients, like glycerin, salicylic acid, lactic acid, and so on, to exfoliate and renew our skin. Also, they have ingredients like squalane and hyaluronic acid plump and hydrate. The main difference is usage. The BIOSSANCE takes just 10 minutes each time and around 3 times a week while the DE recommends 20minnites and only once a week. The Original: DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream$64 The Dupe: PAULA'S CHOICE - Clinical Ceramide-Enriched Firming Eye Cream $14 Vitamin C also gives your eyes a lift, especially when it comes to correcting dark circles... which is precisely the reason why the lightweight-yet-hydrating DRUNK ELEPHANT C-Tango™ Multivitamin Eye Cream is so popular. On the other hand, PAULAS CHOICE Ceramide-enriched Firming Eye Cream pumps up your peepers for more than half the price. This Paula's Choice product also has a lot going for it, as it blends brightening vitamin C with retinol and five ceramides, making it quite the eye cream multitasker. Also, Cassandra pointed out that they have a similar texture as well as feel. The Original: DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum$48 The Dupe: FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum$38 B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum contains sodium hyaluronate, a hyaluronic acid derivative, plus skin-brightening pineapple ceramides and vitamin B5 to lock in moisture. Similarly, lightweight and super absorbent, this First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum is a water-based gel packed with hyaluronic acid and soluble collagen for plumpness, plus allantoin, aloe, and colloidal oatmeal to further soothe irritated skin. Like Drunk Elephant, First Aid Beauty's products are 100% vegan, but opting for this same-sized serum will save you ten bucks. The Original:DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream$60 The Dupe: PAULA'S CHOICE - Omega+ Complex Moisturizer,$35 The key of these products is ceramides. Cassandra recommended PAULAS CHOICE Omega + Complex Moisturizer as Drunk Elephant's dupe. PAULAS CHOICE is almost identical – Down to the whipped, cloud-like texture! The velvety moisturizer highlights rich omega fatty acids to strengthen the barrier and fruit extracts to soothe the skin. It is an amazing way to end our nighttime routine! Cassandra personally likes this one WAY better, and it still has the same three ceramides that the DE one has at half the price. While Drunk Elephant is nothing short of a buzzworthy skincare brand, there's no denying that some of our favorite buys can take a lot of coin from that hard-earned paycheck once payday comes knocking. And for this reason, these best Drunk Elephant dupes climbing the ranks of cult-favorite products are worth trying at least once!

Lip Care is Skincare Too! 💕 $8 Dupe
Lip care is definitely an important part of any skincare routine! For the longest time I was a big fan of the Fresh Lip Treatments but they were very expensive! One day I found the Physicans Formula Lip Treatment and noticed it felt very very similar to the Fresh one! Then magically it disappeared off the market for a few years and now it’s finally back! The fresh - Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment retails for $26 for .15oz of product (I have a mini above). They claim it hydrates your lips for up to 24 hours and smooths they looks of wrinkles. The lip balm is really smooth and coats your lips in the product. Personally, I like heavier lip balms that I can feel on my lips and this gives you that results. I wouldn’t say it lasts 24 hours but I don’t find myself needing to reapply it throughout the day. The only thing I don’t like about this lip balm is the product melts really easily. As you can see from my picture it can get misshapen pretty easily and eventually it gets to a point where it becomes hard to apply and breaks off in the tube so you have to be careful or else you’ll pull the whole thing out. The PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Organic Wear Lip Treatment retails for $8.49 for .15 oz of product. They claim that it hydrates, condition, and smooth the lips for a supple pout. Like Fresh it smooths over the lips and coats it beautifully. To me they feel exactly the same on the lips. It’s very nourishing and creamy. The difference with this one is it keeps its shape a lot better. I also don’t have the problem of it breaking off in the tube. Both products feel exactly the same on the lips and even have the same component which I found interesting. I personally like the packaging of Fresh better as it looks sleeker and the wrapper is showing wear and tear on my Physicans Formula but I like the formula of the Physicans Formula better. They both contain jojoba oil and beeswax but that seems to be about the only similarity ingredients wise. I also don’t detect a scent from either. I 100% stand by these as dupes though because they preform and feel the same on the lips (though I prefer the Physicans Formula). For $8 I would 100% recommend everyone pick this up. It’s like the Fresh formula but with all the kinks worked out. I use both of these in the morning and night time.
