Same Product different formula? Why one works and the other is a Dupe!
Many skincare companies are beginning to avoid using alcohol in products, due to the fact that it advances premature aging. Your skin should not be dried out and if you have a pimple there are many spot treatments that work but a high concentration of alcohol can cause problem areas to persist. I bought clay masks on amazon, since im a Prime junkie, however I saw that the same mask from the same company was listed in 2 different packages that looked identical, but the ingredients contained one product that was different. I had been using the mask without alcohol and been loving it and telling friends to buy it. However one day while repurchasing I saw that one had alcohol and ordered both. The one with alcohol appeared darker and smelled funny. It did end up burning my skin and causing redness the following day while excessively drying my skin. However the one without alcohol, felt soothing, removed dead skin, and even out my skin tone. I was amazed to find that one ingredient (alcohol) could make my skin react so differently.
