The Beauty Alerts Vol.39

Secret Discount Offers in TikTok Shops

Hi, my loves -

One sale after another - now we are onto the Sephora savings event. I am no longer a Rouge from cutting down my spending so much last year (proud of myself) so there’s no reason for me to buy just to take 10% off.

HOWEVER…I did take advantage of the 30% off Sephora Collection deal and grabbed one of the powder blushes in heated, which looks like a dupe for the Nars Orgasm blush. I also bought the Sephora Collection Resurfacing Peel Mask - a more gentle dupe for the Drunk Elephant Baby Facial.

Beauty Dupes

The most-loved and most-purchased dupe from our community is the BRIOTECH Topical Skin Spray. It’s identical to the Tower28 Beauty SOS Daily Rescue Facial Spray in terms of its formula but at half the price.

I want to give it a shout-out because I just reordered another one - highly recommend you give it a try if you haven’t already!


Ulta is having 5x points on gift sets, which are a great way to try out products.

Here are 2 of my top recommendations that are worth the $$:

I personally have gone through tons of these two products since around 2016. They are a game changer for acne-prone skin that has a lower rate of skin metabolism on its own.

This set works together to gently exfoliate, hydrate, and renew your skin - a game changer to my skin

If your hair tends to be oily, use this Bumble & Bumble set.

It sounds counterintuitive, but it’s like oily skin needs more hydration to balance out the oil products, this line does the same to your hair.


The beauty industry has become “fast beauty”, so much so that I miss the days when every makeup launch is a big deal, and the launch campaigns feel like art artifacts

From the product itself to its marketing campaign, the Byredo Remembrance Pallete launch feels like the good old days.


Here’s a store merchandising tactic for you!

CVS is not subtle about its store brand being dupes for La Roche-Posay and CeraVe: we will just put them next to each other and you should get our point.

You know what? Redditors say the cleanser is indeed nearly identical to La Roche-Posay’s.


TikTok is expanding its ecommerce vertical on the platform. That means sweet deals for us customers.

If you go on your TikTok mobile app, go to Revolve’s account, and check out their shopping section, what do you see? 30% off deals! Better than your Sephora sales right now!


Dermatologists are popular on social media right now for debunking beauty claims, which can often lead to a video full of snarky and snide remarks.

Dr. Shereene Idriss, our beloved pillow talk derm, focuses more on the matter of facts rather than attacking others for click baits.

If you want to learn from a dermatologist with better energy, go follow her.
