In a May 14 video, TikToker @beau.thi.ful takes shoppers through her Five Below store, highlighting an Electric Blackhead Extractor in the beauty section. She’s especially intrigued because she bought something similar on Amazon for $25.

According to Five Below’s website, this particular blackhead extractor costs $5, a fraction of Amazon’s price.

Several shoppers have been seeking out Solar Flare brand beauty products, which many claim are dupes of Sol de Janeiro products.

While these items were sold out at other stores, TikToker Sofya (@_leaveitblankk) was able to snag Solar Flare body butter at her local Five Below.

“The first cream I found was Pink Hibiscus Dragonfruit Body Butter, which is supposed to be a dupe for (Sol de Janeiro) No. 68,” Sofya says in a May 15 video, commenting on how similar the packaging looks between Solar Flare and Sol de Janeiro.

She continues, “They also had a dupe for (Sol de Janeiro) No. 40, which was called Vanilla Plum Nectar.”

In addition, Sofya says she found a shimmering body oil from the Solar Flare brand, which again was comparable to options from Sol de Janeiro.

In a follow-up video, Sofya tells her followers that the Vanilla Plum Nectar was a 10 out of 10 dupe, and that she “couldn’t tell the difference” between the Sol de Janeiro and the Solar Flare options. The Pink Hibiscus Dragonfruit was slightly less impressive, as the Sol de Janeiro version had a stronger scent.
