I officially started Accutane 36 days ago, when after two years of less severe other Acne treatment options had failed and my skin was getting worse by the day. My dermatologist prescribed 60mg to be taken over the course of 6-8 months, to try to cure me of this “disease.”

Affordable Dupe for Becca Cosmetics Highlighters / Dupe for Moonstone & Champagne Pop

The cult favorite of YouTube, and Sephora bestseller are the Becca highlighters. I’ve bit the expensive bullet twice and purchased the highlight in the shades Moonstone and Champaign Pop. I do not regret purchasing as they are beautiful and add the perfect glow to the skin.

I could say just run out and buy them yourself, but that wouldn’t fit the purpose of this blog post would it?
