These 5 Products Went Viral on TikTok… and For Good Reason!
These days, one of the best platforms to spot trends, whether style or beauty, is TikTok! In the last few years, women and men have gone viral for showing off some of their favorite beauty products including skincare, mascaras, lip gloss, and more.
Of course, everything that goes viral doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a good product. Often a eye-catching video is all you need to show off a product that may be harmful to your skin or just… not work! So how do you know which viral beauty products actually work?! However, thankfully, we have a team of reviewers and dermatologists that have wrapped up some of the best viral beauty products,
We went through dozens of viral TikTok beauty products and ranked the top 5 most effective and safe. Let’s get started…
This is by far one of the best products to have popped up on TikTok and our favorite choice when it comes to products specifically for removing stretch marks, dark spots, and sagging skin. The Glow Fairy’s Retinol Body Glow Wand is a highly-condensed retinol balm that you easily apply to any area of concern on your body. The Body Glow Wand comes packed with retinol along with a handful of effective ingredients (including squalane, vitamin E, and lanolin) to help boost your skin’s moisture and collagen production and help lessen the appearance of stretch marks, wrinkles, and dark spots while giving your skin a smoother and softer feel. Not only that, we found a special 50% off discount code SECRET5! So cool! The balm is easy to apply with just a few swipes needed every night on the areas of skin that need your help. Highly recommended!
This amazing contour wand is perfect for blending colors for a perfect look. Madison Beer may have been the first to make it popular, but it certainly took TikTok by storm from makeup tutorial artists to regular users. Choose from two colors to help give you the perfect look. What we also love about this product (especially our team of dermatologists) is that it’s vegan-friendly, gluten-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, and never tested on animals.
Why so many loved Maybelline’s mascara was because it's so under the radar. This is a simple drugstore find that many TikTok’rs have been loving it for how well it works at such a low cost! Similar mascaras are often two to three times as expensive. The non-flaking, non-smudging mascara is the perfect product for makeup bags and travel kits, too.
Whether you think so or not, almost everyone could use some hair repair, TikTok users have declared. With thousands of views, people are in love with Olaplex. Hair is so sensitive and even if you take amazing care of it, something like Olaplex’s No. 3 Hair Perfector will still help. It’s the smoothest, best hair conditioner and repairer ever. You can use it every day or like, once a month, either way you’d be doing a HUGE service to your hair.”
This was a surprising viral product but undeniably effective and amazing. CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser is a simple and affordable face wash that TikTok loves. Often, we look for those super expensive, rare ingredients, hyper superior face washes that are supposed to completely revitalize your face in one wash. But in reality, what’s better is a simple face wash that you can use before applying concentrated help (Like the Glow Fairy Retinol Wand).
While we found some amazing products on TikTok. We loved Glow Fairy the most, an amazing find for helping diminsh your stretch marks, dark spots and aging skin, we believe We wanted to talk further with our investigative reporter Stephanie Marianne who helped create the rankings list and how The Glow Fairy Retinol Body Glow Wand worked for her. Stephanie tells the story.
Personally, I never believed in the effectiveness of anti-wrinkle, anti-stretch mark anything. “Time cannot be reversed,” I used to tell my friends. Too many of them have been tricked into buying some wild lotion just to find out it’s a waste of money. So I’ve avoided it at all costs.
But then my best friend, who I trust with my life, swore by The Glow Fairy Retinol Body Glow Wand. She would swipe it on every night before she went to bed. After a few weeks her stretch marks started to fade and her skin felt tighter and more vibrant. I, of course, didn’t believe her. But then she showed me the before and after collage of photos. I was stunned. Week by week her stretch marks and neck wrinkles became less noticeable all together! I begged her to let me borrow her Body Glow Wand. Instead she gave me a secret 50% OFF code, SECRET50, and I ordered my own Body Glow Wand immediately.
I received a package in the next few days and applied that night. The application is super simple, just open the Body Glow Wand and swipe it on! LOL, but actually, for best effectiveness, post-shower, after your body is clean and dry. Do your nightly routine and leave the Body Glow Wand for last. Warm up the balm a little by rubbing onto your finger for an easier swipe. Then, apply the balm around the areas of your body where you see stretch marks, or where stretch marks commonly appear (hips, stomach, butt, etc), on aging and sagging skin, or on dark spots. Just a few swipes and voila!
I, of course, expected results immediately. But it will take a few weeks to see the real results (so I made sure to snap a few before photos). While I waited, I ended up doing a little research on the ingredients that go into the Body Glow Wand and found that the retinol wasn’t the only thing helping my fine lines disappear…
Of course, there’s retinol, which helps neutralize free radicals in the skin and encourage the production of collagen. The rich source of vitamin A is so effective in helping boost collagen that it’s almost the only ingredient needed. But Glow Fairy did an amazing thing of adding the extra punches with some of these other ingredients…
This ingredient is wild! It’s a highly-effective natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that can help reduce wrinkles and reverse the effects of UV damage and while fighting free radicals. It’s really great at reversing skin damage, and making old, tough skin feel renewed.
Vitamin E is an essential ingredient in any skin product, and if you’re using products that don’t have it, rethink your decisions! Vitamin E basically creates a forcefield around your skin to prevent moisture loss. While doing that, it also helps fight skin damage and signs of aging.
A super moisturizer that helps repair cracked and damaged skin. While retinol and squalane are doing the heavy lifting, lanolin steps in and cleans up those small issues for even more beautiful looking skin.
So, finally, after 4 weeks, I decided to check if I could see results… and wow! The stretch marks around my hips and stomach were reduced by half! And my skin as a whole felt tighter and smoother than it had in a LONG time. I was convinced.
I was officially converted into a Body Glow Wand believer! I hope you will, too!
