We’re all about that affordable skincare dupe life! So we’re back with another list of the best skincare dupes for high end products! We took some best sellers on Sephora and searched the interwebs for similar products sold at affordable prices. Here’s a list of affordable high-end skincare dupes curated from products found at Sephora.

1. Amorepacific

Estimated Price: $145 USD

Size: 4.05 Oz | 120 mL

What it is: Besides SK-II and La Mer, this toner is one of the more pricey items available at Sephora. This lightweight and watery essence utilizes fermented green tea as its main ingredient to boost antioxidant levels, increase hydration levels, and clarify skin. Rowena personally loves this essence for its anti-aging benefits due to a potent concentration of antioxidants.

Tony Moly Chok Chok Green Tea Watery Skin Toner

Estimated Price: $23 USD

Size: 6.09 Oz |  180 mL

What it is: This product is a watery toner that highlights the Chung Tae Jeon fermented green tea as the main ingredient. This tea is said to have a legacy of over a thousand years of Korean history and is best known for its gentle and soothing properties. This toner also contains lemon seed oil and rosewood oil for extra anti-fungal and anti-bacterial fighting power.

ISNTREE Green Tea Fresh Toner

Estimated Price: $20 USD

Size: 6.76 Oz | 120 mL

What it is: Rowena calls this toner a very close dupe to the Amorepacific toner – down from the highlighted ingredient to the texture and color. Not only does it contain 80% Jeju Island sourced green tea extract, but this toner also contains centella asiatica, hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid, allantoin, and blueberry fruit extract to soothe, calm, and purify the skin. This is highly recommended for those with oily and combination skin types.

2. Drunk Elephant Mask

Estimated Price: $52 USD

Size: 1.7 Oz | 50 mL

What it is: This newcomer is definitely the start of a new skincare trend! The Drunk Elephant’s F-Balm water facial mask is an overnight mask aimed at plumping, healing, and hydrating your skin with incredibly humectant ingredients including potassium, magnesium, and electrolytes. All of these minerals are great at rebuilding your skin barrier and maintain hydration levels for healthy skin.

Affordable Dupe

Estimated Price: $35 USD

Size: 1.7 Oz |  50 mL

What it is: While Paula’s Choice’s product isn’t an overnight mask, it’s amazing to see electrolytes included in a moisturizer. Like the F-Balm, this moisturizer contains potassium, magnesium, and calcium, as well as fruit and plant derived antioxidants and squalane for moisture. As for the downsides, this moisturizer might throw some people off with its pudding-oatmeal like texture and unusual (mineral-y?) smell, but it absorbs quickly into the skin and disperses hydration like a water cream does. 

3. Drunk Elephant Cleanser

Estimated Price: $32 USD

Size: 5 Oz | 148 mL

What it is: If you like cleansers that don’t leave your skin feeling stripped, this Drunk Elephant jelly cleanser is considered a holy grail for most (according to reviews at Sephora). This clear, bouncy, and jelly-like texture spreads evenly onto skin, removes makeup, and leaves your skin feeling hydrated and smooth with ingredients like marula oil, cantaloupe extract, and aloe extract.

Affordable Dupes

Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser

Estimated Price: $18 USD

Size: 6 Oz |  177 mL

What it is: On the same note as gentle cleansers, this creamy non-foaming cleanser also works to take off makeup and leave skin feeling hydrated and supple. For Rowena, she personally finds that this cleanser was too stripping for her dry skin, while the packaging led to leaking. But it might be a very good choice for those with oily-combination or normal skin types.

Bliss Makeup Melt Cleanser

Estimated Price: $12 USD

Size: 6.4 Oz | 189  mL

What it is: This dupe can be considered the love child of Drunk Elephant’s Beste No.9 Cleanser and the Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser. It has a milky jelly texture similar to Glossier’s, while the scent and lather closely resembles Drunk Elephant’s. This cleanser gently removes makeup while keeping skin moisturized and hydrated due to amino acids, panthenol, and vitamin E (tocopherol).

4. Peter Thomas Roth

Estimated Price: $60 USD

Size: 5 Oz | 148 mL

What it is: This mask is a unique game changer to exfoliation. On a normal basis, many exfoliants contain either physical or chemical exfoliants to help speed up the cell turnover process and brighten up pigmented skin. For this mask, you can get the benefits of chemical and physical exfoliation in one! Both Felicia and Rowena love pumpkin enzyme as the highlighted ingredient because it contains a multitude of vitamins and essential nutrients for the skin (also it smells like pumpkin pie!). The aluminum oxide particles act as a buffing agent to brighten up the skin for a noticeable polished complexion. While this mask restocks quickly at Sephora, it does sell out fast!

Affordable Dupes

Andalou Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Mask

Estimated Price: $15 USD

Size: 1.7 Oz |  50 mL

What it is: If you’re into a more “natural-based” mask that contains all the benefits of pumpkin and AHAs, this one might be for you. This thick mask gives off a luxurious and tingly feel as you leave it on your skin. It also contains manuka honey, glycolic acid, and lots of plant based oils and extracts to leave your skin soft and bright.

Bliss Pumpkin Powerhouse Enzyme Mask

Estimated Price: $15 USD

Size: 1.7 Oz |  50 mL

What it is: A more fun alternative, this mask comes in a pale orange color that can remind some of orange creamsicles on a hot summer day. But like the other masks, this product also highlights pumpkin puree as the core ingredient, along with lemon and rice powders for soft exfoliation.

5. Dr.Jart + Ceramide Cream

Estimated Price: $48 USD

Size: 1.7 Oz |  50 mL

What it is: Here’s a great K-beauty brand you can find at Sephora! If you’re all about rebuilding a compromised skin barrier (which is what you should do for healthy skin anyway), this cream is a cult favorite – and for good reason too, especially if you have drier skin types. Not only is this cream thick and slightly balmy, but it is packed with skin barrier building ingredients like ceramides, fatty alcohols, hyaluronic acid, and bifida ferment lysate.

Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Cream

Estimated Price: $19 USD

Size: 2.02 Oz | 60 mL

What it is: This whipped cream is thick, luxurious, and perfectly safe for sensitive skin types. The Good Cera Super Ceramide Cream highlights fermented ceramide and shea butter as star ingredients to provide long lasting moisture while soothing and rebuilding the skin’s lipid barrier.

The Inkey List Ceramide Night Treatment

Estimated Price: $15 USD

Size: 1 Oz |  30 mL

What it is: For a more budget friendly option, this ceramide night treatment is a lightweight milky gel that you can layer over your serums for an extra boost of skin protection. This treatment highlights 3% multi-ceramide complex and 2.5% multi-molecular hyaluronic acid as key ingredients for replenishing your skin barrier as you sleep. What’s also great about this product is that it’s also a top selling item at Sephora!

6. Dr.Jart + Centella Cream

Estimated Price: $48 USD

Size: 1.7 Oz |  50 mL

What it is: If you have itchy, inflamed, sensitive or irritated skin, centella (or cica) is a wonderful ingredient that gently soothes and protects. For this reason, this thick but smooth cream does just that. And in case you were wondering about why centella is nicknamed ”tiger grass,” it’s because – according to the ancient Chinese – tigers were once seen rolling over these plants to heal their wounds.

Innisfree Cica Balm with Bija Seed Oil

Estimated Price: $16 USD

Size: 1.35 Oz |  40 mL

What it is: This balm to gel type product acts as a skin’s savior for irritated, blemished, red and sensitive skin. It contains cica and Jeju Island’s fruit Bija to act as gentle but effective ingredients to even out skin texture, protect the skin barrier, and reduce redness.

Purito Centella Green Level Recovery Cream

Estimated Price: US$21 on Beauty Within

Size: 1.7 Oz |  50 mL

What it is: One of Felicia’s most favorite products, the Purito Centella cream is a must have for oily and acne prone skin types. Not only does it help reduce redness and inflammation, but it’s lightweight to use in place of your moisturizer without clogging pores.

A’PIEU Madecassoside Cream

Estimated Price: $9 USD

Size:  4 Oz |  118 mL

What it is: For those who have been wondering, madecassoside is a compound of Cica that works to soothe inflamed skin. This is combined with 40% centella leaf water, niacinamide, and panthenol to rebuild skin barrier and brighten up discolored skin.

La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5

Estimated Price: $15 USD

Size: 1.7 Oz |  50 mL

What it is: This is another multi-purpose balm that’s perfect for dry and irritated skin types. Rowena personally loves this balm for nourishing her dry and dehydrated skin while simultaneously leaving a matte finish.

7. Dr.Jart + Centella Serum

Estimated Price: $46 USD

Size: 1.01 Oz | 30 mL

What it is: If you’re more into serums than thick creams, Dr. Jart has an alternative to its Cicapair cream. This lightweight and fast absorbing serum is highly concentrated with centella to soothe and calm redness and irritation, while the signature Jartbiome complex works to replenish and rebalance your skin’s microbiome for a healthier barrier.

What it is: For an a more potent concentration of centella, this ampoule is made up of 85.85% centella asiatica leaf water and centella asiatica extract for extra soothing. Sodium hyaluronate is also highlighted to hydrate and plump the skin.

COSRX Centella Aqua Soothing Ampoule

What it is: For those with acne prone and inflamed skin, this lightweight ampoule helps provide instant relief and hydration to soothe and nourish. For rebuilding a compromised skin barrier, this ampoule contains 42% centella asiatica, madecassoside, and panthenol to calm inflammation to the skin.

Purito Green Level Buffet Serum

Estimated Price: US$21 on Beauty Within

What it is: This is another one of Felicia’s favorite serums for calming her oily and acne prone skin. Similar to the COSRX ampoule, this serum also contains 42% centella extract, as well as other compounds of centella including asiatic acid, madecassic acid, and asiaticoside. There’s also niacinamide for brightening and panthenol for uneven skin tone.
