I wrote part one to this back in May, and I must say, I’ve already almost doubled my product line with DIME Beauty! While there are a few brands that I truly love, they have really impressed me over the last several months. With their clean formulas affordable prices, it’s no surprise that I love the new batch of products that they recently released! Read Dime Beauty Products Currently On My Shelf Part one, then come back and check out my new favorites. I’ve been testing out product no. 2 for the last several weeks and it actually launches today! Scroll down to ready and get the exclusive on DIME Beauty’s Super Firm Serum. 🙂
Use Code: RACHELS20
This perfume was a pleasant surprise! I usually stick to my favorite 2-3 scents, but once I smelled this one, I knew it was a winner. I was surprised to find out that it’s also supposedly a perfect dupe for the Baccarat Rouge 540 perfume. Baccarat is way, way out of my budget, so this was a nice surprise.
I shared 7 Summers with one of my sisters and my sister-in-law, and they both loved it! Each of us has very different scent preferences but this one somehow works for all three of us.

The new Super Firm Serum drops today!
I was lucky enough to try the serum over the last few weeks and so far I’m very impressed. I don’t use many tightening treatments, so I may not be the best guinea pig, but I did notice that my skin felt tighter after applying it a few drops under my moisturizer and SPF while at the beach last week.
The serum claims to produce collagen and elastic quicker, allowing the skin to keep up in repairing itself. I’ve been using roughly every other morning by applying a few drops to my fingertips and pressing into “problem” areas. I focus on my forehead, around my eyes and mouth, and my neck and chest. I’ll keep you posted on Instagram over the coming weeks, so be sure to follow along to track the progress!
The title on the front of the bottle says “TBT Cream” but if you read the directions on the back, it calls it a night cream, which is exactly how I use the product. While not too thick to wear in the summer, I think I’ll get the most use out of this product in colder, dryer months.
The TBT Cream is a “clean retinol alternative”. From my understanding, retinol speeds up your cell turnover but it can expose your skin to harmful UV rays and pollution, etc. The TBT Cream supports the barrier function of the skin so you get the benefits of retinol in that it speeds up cell turnover, regulates sebum, and stimulates collage production, while still keeping your pH where it’s supposed to be and not drying out your skin.
Also, if you’re still confused on how it’s working on your skin, learn more about this retinol substitute here! It’s a great explainer video and can spell it out much better than I ever could. 🙂
