Target is a beloved shopping destination for a reason. Here, you can find everything from chic kitchen items to cute clothing to affordable groceries—and you'll be hard-pressed to leave with just one thing. But even as the retailer announces plans to lower prices on thousands of products, Target may not be your cheapest option. In fact, one content creator is now trying to convince shoppers to take a trip to Dollar Tree for some wallet-friendly Target dupes instead.

Rachel, a TikToker who refers to herself as "Your Budget Friendly Bestie," posted a video to her account @rachelxburrows on May 19 to show that the dollar store chain is carrying many of the same brands (or similar ones) that you would find at your local Target.

"Don't compare Dollar Tree to Target? Oh yeah, explain this then," she writes at the beginning of her TikTok before wheeling her cart through the aisles of a Dollar Tree store to show off a number of affordable alternatives.

Read on for a list of 25 Target dupes Rachel was able to find on her shopping trip for just $1.25 each.

Trying to take care of your skin can prove to be quite expensive, with influencers showing off their 10-step routines and high-end products. But in her TikTok, Rachel highlights some of the many Target dupes you can find at Dollar Tree for all your skincare needs.

The first two products she shows in her video—which has already been viewed over 3.1 million times—are from Vaseline. At Dollar Tree, Rachel was able to find both Vaseline Cocoa Glow Moisturizing Cream and Vaseline All Purpose Cream.

And that's not all. Rachel also shows that Dollar Tree has no shortage of face masks available for shoppers to choose from. These include the Miss Spa Watermelon Hydrating Sheet Mask, the Miss Spa Vitamin C Brightening Sheet Mask, and the Masque Bar 2-Minute Peptide & Niacinamide Sheet Mask.

Makeup and Nails

Dollar Tree's beauty dupes extend beyond just skincare, of course. The discount chain also carries makeup products from many brands you would find at Target, such as Elf Lipstick and Revlon Lip Color, according to Rachel's TikTok.

Need something for your nails? Rachel also highlights Dollar Tree's extensive nail polish collection, which includes the perfect cherry red shade of Kiss Gel Nail Polish for the summer.

You can take care of your teeth by shopping at Dollar Tree, too. As Rachel points out, Dollar Tree sells Grin Smooth Flossers (which are sold at Target for $4.99), as well as two popular teeth-whitening toothpastes: Crest 3D White and Colgate Optic White.

Hair Care

The hair care selection at Dollar Tree isn't lacking either. According to Rachel's TikTok, the discount chain sells both Goody Hair Ties and Goody Bobby Pins, as well as Scünci Hair Ties and "so many options" of Scünci Scrunchies—including a teal blue scrunchie that she says is "so perfect for summer."

Shoppers have also been taking note of Dollar Tree's home and cleaning offerings. If you're in need of some soap, Rachel's video shows that the retailer offers Dove Bar Soap and Dial Hand Soap.

You'll also find Air Wick products at Dollar Tree, which Rachel tells viewers she needs to "re-up on" during her shopping trip.

"I love this scent," she says while grabbing an Air Wick Scented Oil Refill in Vanilla & Pink Papaya.

Dollar Tree is also selling a limited edition Air Wick Scented Oil Refill in Refreshing Watermelon & Berries, which Rachel says is "so good" and not always easy to find at other retailers.

Another great cleaning find Rachel highlights in her video? Scotch Brite Stainless Steel Scrubbers, which are more than a dollar cheaper at Dollar Tree than at Target.

If you're a parent, take note. At Dollar Tree, you can find BooginHead Pacifier Clips and Dapple Baby Breast Pump Cleaner, both at a more affordable price than at Target, according to Rachel's TikTok.
