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 is particularly intrigued because she'd purchased something similar on Amazon for $25.

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

Solar Flare products

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

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

"The first cream that 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 was again 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 she "could not tell the difference" between the Sol de Janeiro and the Solar Flare options. The Pink Hibiscus Dragonfruit was a little bit less impressive, as the Sol de Janeiro version had a stronger scent.
