You won't be able to smell the difference
- Hi, I'm [? Monica. ?] And this is "In The Know Duped," the series where we find low-cost alternatives to your favorite high-end and luxury products. Today, we are talking perfumes and colognes because we want you to smell heavenly without busting your budget.
Affordable perfumes have really upped their game. Back in the day, cheaper fragrances were notorious for smelling sickeningly sweet and overpowering. But many of the brands that we're going to be talking about today are seriously sophisticated.
Now, when I think of feminine fragrances, Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle immediately comes to mind. It's an [INAUDIBLE]. It has a really fresh scent. And it has vibrant orange notes. However, this perfume is also $146. Thankfully, we have a cheaper alternative on the scene now. The Armaf Club de Nuit is also going to give you that elegant freshness and a hint of geranium, which is going to give you that sensual fruity vibe. But at only $25, it is a fraction of the cost of the Chanel fragrance. I love the packaging. It has like these little crystals on it. And I like bling. How about you?
Now, Tom Ford also has so many gorgeous and delectable fragrances, but they come with a super hefty price tag. For example, the Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille, this little baby is going to cost you $285. But if you're looking for a cheaper alternative, don't worry, I got you. The Cremo Spice and Black Vanilla perfume is similar to the Tom Ford perfume in that it also has vanilla notes, but it's really sweet and romantic. So if you're into that sort of thing, this is definitely for you. But the best part about it is that it is only $18, which proves that you do not need to spend a ton of money to smell good.
Now, for our third product we are going to talk about moisturizers, because keeping that skin smooth, supple, and soft is so important. Now, a fan favorite is this mindbodygreen lotion. It is the postbiotic body lotion, and it's fabulous. The only problem? It costs $30. Thankfully, we got the CeraVe. This is the daily moisturizing lotion. And at only $11, you can be looking amazing, feeling smooth, supple, great skin at a fraction of the cost.
And if you have sensitive skin, this product is for you because it is fragrance- and oil-free. It also contains hyaluronic acid, which helps your skin retain its natural moisture and keeps it hydrated all-day long. With that said, I hope that you give these products a try. I'm [? Monica. ?] And this is In The Know Duped. See you next time.
