Looking for a Glossier Futuredew dupe? Rest easy because we found the best swaps for the famous, gleam-giving serum to add to your skincare routine.

Glossier's Futuredew is described as an oil-serum hybrid that's a "one-step shortcut to the way your skin looks after a full skincare routine." It's non-comedogenic and can be used as a nourishing serum, primer and highlighter—which is exactly how Sofia Richie uses Futuredew

And while we do adore a multipurpose makeup product, it will set you back $26. So, if you're looking for a cheaper but equally versatile alternative—or you're already a convert and just want more and more glow-boosters in your arsenal—here are some My Imperfect Life-approved products like Futuredew...

Glossier Futuredew dupes: what products are similar?

Perhaps you've been tempted by Futuredew for some time now but you just can't quite justify the price point. Whatever the reason you're looking to branch out, we've found you a bunch of nourishing serums and primers to help you achieve that 'glazed' look...

The Glow Recipe dew drops are perhaps the closest to Futuredew and are available in both a mini size for just $20 and a full size for $35. Glossier's hybrid is only available in one size, so if you want to test out if this style of serum is for you before you go all in, the mini dew drops could be the way to go. 

Like with Futuredew, the dew drops are multi-purpose—you can mix them with all of your favorite non-comedogenic foundations, use them as a glassy highlighter, or as a primer. On those no-makeup days, you can also wear it on its own for a super radiant but au-natural look.

My Imperfect Life's Beauty Editor, Aleesha Badkar is a major stan of these niacinamide-infused drops, she says: "They're water-based rather than oil-based like the Futuredew, which I actually prefer as they feel a lot fresher and lighter to wear and soak into the skin nicely leaving it feeling hydrated and healthy. Futuredew is great for a glowy sheen, but I find it very slightly thick and sticky sometimes."

As for whether you should add Glow Recipe's glow booster to your cart, Aleesha says they've become a 'skincare/makeup must' for her adding: "I apply these lightweight and very quenching drops after my skincare—although I wait a while to apply so as not to disrupt my face sunscreen. A few drops patted into the skin, not only leaves my skin feeling fresh and comfortable, but it helps my makeup base sit seamlessly. And that glow!" 

There you have it. 

P.S.: Be sure to check out the Sephora Sale for these serum staples, you can even keep an eye on deals on Futuredew as Glossier at now at Sephora.

When to apply Futuredew in your skincare routine

If you're stumped on when exactly your glowy serum should come in your skincare regime, Glossier says to use it as the final step for either a fresh, bare skin look or to give your makeup a dewy base. 

Alternatively, you can also mix it with your best foundations or skin tints, or use it as a highlighter.
