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 my favorite TikTok choice for spot-treating acne, pimples, whiteheads, red or dry skin, and blemishes. The Glow Fairy Glow Patches are highly-effective patches that help diminish the appearance of pimples and blemishes while preventing further skin damage. We found out about The Glow Fairy Glow Patches after we were offered a secret 50% discount code SECRET50. We loved how quickly the patches worked! Loaded with hydrocolloid, the patch pulls dirt, oils, and sebum from the skin while helping retain moisture, reducing inflammation and redness. Wearing a patch overnight can help reduce the appearance of a blemish by over 50%! This are super helpful when trying to fight a pimple and 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 Spotlights).
While TikTok recommends some great products, we truly believe Glow Fairy is at the top of the list. We wanted to talk further with our investigative reporter Stephanie Marianne who helped create the rankings list and how The Glow Fairy Glow Patches worked for her. Stephanie tells the story.
Personally, I never believed in the effectiveness of spot treatments, or creams for blemishes. There’s a lot of brands out there claiming they work overnight, and that’s just too hard to believe. I’ve had too many friends tricked into buying some wild cream just to find out it’s a waste of money. So I’ve avoided it at all costs.
But then I told my best friend, who I trust with my life, about Glow Fairy Glow Patches. She immediately ran to her bathroom to grab a box of patches. She was so excited! She said it was the only spot treatment that helped diminish the appearance of her pimples, red spots, blemishes and dry skin. I, of course, didn’t believe her. But then she showed me a photo from the night before, and I was stunned. She had three small blemishes that were completely gone from her skin! I begged her to let me borrow her Glow Patches. Instead, she gave me a secret 50% off code, SECRET50, and I ordered my own immediately.
I received the package within two days and started using them that night. The application is very simple. Each box comes packaged with 18 star-shaped patches with a highly-concentrated and effective formula. You just place one of the patches on top of your pimple or blemish. That’s it. I put two on and went to bed. Of course, I imagined feeling some type of tingling or magical transformation, but alas, it takes all night to work.
So while I waited, I looked into the science of Glow Fairy. I wanted to know more about the ingredients that make Glow Fairy’s Glow Patches so effective. I learned there’s one min ingredient doing most of the magic: hydrocolloid.
What is Hydrocolloid?
Hydrocolloid is a moisture-retentive ingredient that is able to absorb liquids including dirt, oils, free radicals, and sebum from the skin. When you use it, it is able to pull all of the worst oils from a pimple, helping reduce inflammation and redness. Within one to two nights of using a patch, you can reduce a pimple almost completely. It’s amazing!
I woke up the next morning to check my blemishes. I peeled off the Glow Patches and was amazed. Each blemish was reduced by HALF the size. They were barely noticeable. Usually it takes a week or more for a red spot to go away. By the next morning they were completely gone. Unbelievable.
I’ve been converted into a Glow Patch believer, and I hope you will, too!
