Splurge: Clarisonic Mia
Skincare junkies coast-to-coast swear by this cleansing brush. The bristles are meant to mimic the effect of a facial on your face, and when used several times a week, it's designed to remove more oil, dirt and makeup than traditional cleansing. The $99 price tag is pretty steep, though, especially if you have to keep splurging on replacement brush heads.
Dupe: Olay ProX Advanced Cleansing System
If you've got champagne taste on a beer budget, the Olay Pro-X is going to be your jam. The brush has two speeds and is water-resistant, so it's totally safe to use in the shower, too.
Splurge: Josie Maran Cleansing Oil
I've always loved using cleansing oils on my dry skin--I feel like they bring way more moisture than a foam or cream cleanser. While I love this one by Josie Maran for its simple (yet effective) formula, what I don't love is that price tag.
Dupe: Garnier Clean + Nourishing Cleansing Oil
No need to put down a down payment on an oil, though: this one by Garnier is just as good and lightweight. It washes off super easily, but don't let that fool you: it gets every bit of stubborn makeup off with ease.
Splurge: Origins GinZing Refreshing Scrub Cleanser
I love this scrub in the morning: the citrus scent is perfect for waking me right up before a big day. When coupled with the GinZing moisturizer, this stuff is basically a perfect cocktail of morningtime fun. Who needs mimosas?
Dupe: St. Ives Even & Bright Scrub
You don't have to shell out the big bucks for an awesome citrus scent, though. This St. Ives scrub is a fraction of the cost, and every bit as refreshing as its more expensive cousin.
Splurge: St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse
Self tanners are always a matter of preference--one is always too dark or too light--but everyone seems to agree that St. Tropez has a killer formula. That mousse is hands-down one of the best in the biz -- but that price tag is sure to make you pale.
Dupe: L'Oreal Paris Sublime Bronze Self Tanning
If you're craving that mousse formula at only a fraction of the cost, L'Oreal Sublime Bronze was made for you. The formula is so easy to use, never runny, and is perfect for even the palest girls.
Splurge: Lancome Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover
A good makeup remover is essential to your skincare routine, and finding one gentle enough for eyes can be a bit of a killer. This one from Lancome does the job not only well, but pain-free, too.
Dupe: Neutrogena Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover
Not about to shell out nearly $30 for a makeup remover? I can't blame you--and you don't have to. This Neutrogena one is just as good and gentle, and doesn't leave a gross oily residue, either.
