#Dupealert is a series highlighting our favorite beauty dupes at beautydupes.xyz (my side-hustle and passion project). These are products comparable in results but differ in prices and other features. We are giving you all the info, but you should go for whatever suits your preferences.
It’s no pure luck that Tower 28 Beauty has risen to mass fandom in just 2 years since its launch in 2019. The brand entered the market with blushes and lip glosses with hundreds of alternatives already in the market, what made the brand really stood out was that it’s one of the first cosmetics brands tailored to sensitive skin, and the only makeup brand to follow the U.S. National Eczema Association’s guidelines while having beautiful-when-applied, non-toxic, non-irritating formulas. None of Tower 28’s products are priced over $ 28. Seeing the quality of the products, this is quite affordable. We encourage you to support a female-Asian-owned forward-thinking brand if you could. But if you are still searching for some dupes, we are here for you. Read on!
Believe it or not, the #1 best-sellers of Tower 28 beauty is the SOS daily rescue facial spray ($28) — a cult favorite among those with sensitive and acne/eczema-prone skin, and a favorite of the founder Amy Liu. The spray’s hero ingredient is hypochlorous acid, found in our immune system to defend against bacteria, irritation, and injury. Sprayed on the skin, it soothes, deals with inflammation, and speeds up the skin healing process. You can spray it on cuts, acne, eczema, anytime and anywhere you have skin irritations, it helps. That definitely sounds like a best-seller!
The product skyrocketed in fame during COVID because maskne suddenly became a thing. Many have found with the SOS spray sprayed on before putting on a mask greatly reduces the acne and redness from wearing it.
Surprisingly, the Tower 28 magical spray is formulated with only two ingredients, the hypochlorous acid and saltwater (to stabilize the acid). Even more surprisingly, we managed to find an exact dupe with the exact two ingredients at half the price — the Briotech Tropical Skin Spray ($14). The product has glowing customers’ reviews on Amazon. And with its simple ingredient list, need we say more?
